Rereads: 1 (Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater)

Favorite Book Read in November: I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson

Such beautiful writing!

Least Favorite Book Read in November: I enjoyed everything this month, but Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas took me a really long time to get into. I kept getting distracted when reading and it took me over two months to read!

Updates About My Life This Month

1) I reached 50 Bloglovin’ followers! This is an exciting milestone for me and I want to give a huge and heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who follows!

2) If you’ve been following my blog this past month you’ll know I’m hosting the Wolves of Mercy Falls Read-A-Long & Giveaway with She Reads She Blogs and CK’s Reading Corner through December. There’s still time to enter the giveaway to win a signed copy of Sinner with the limited edition dust jacket!

3) Thanksgiving week was really fun! I got a brand new MacBook Pro (courtesy of my awesome Aunt and Grandparents as a belated graduation gift)! It’s so beautiful and so far I’m really liking Yosemite.

4) I spent Thanksgiving visiting my boyfriends family and having a really fun time. I got to meet a lot of his extended family that I hadn’t yet and explore and go sightseeing. We also managed to hit Target later in the day for Black Friday and I managed to pick up a couple of books (thus breaking my no-more-books-until-Christmas-ban, but who knew they’d actually put some books on promo for Black Friday?!)

It’s going to be a MAD rush to try and finish all the books I want to before January, and there’s quite a few I need to. Here’s my (ideal) TBR for December):




Let It Snow

My True Love Gave to Me

The Truth About Alice
