So November happened. November was a mix of emotions, ups and downs, and everything all around. I struggled with reading and blogging, and honestly, I didn’t know how to get back into blogging. It just didn’t feel right. It was that feeling that blogging doesn’t matter because everything is crumbling around us. And then I realized that blogging is the one space I have that I can use for good. For my own happiness, and for making a difference in the world. And I refuse to let anyone take that away from me. So don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere.
What else happened in November? I made the jump and purchased a DSLR camera. I like to do graphic work and decided that I felt limited with using the camera on my phone. I also wasn’t as motivated to take pictures for this blog and my instagram with my phone. I’m still learning the ropes of my new camera, but I’m hoping that I’ll get a good handle on it soon. I’m still waiting on the rest of my equipment to come in, so I’m working with the bare minimum here. But be on the lookout for more photos here and on my social media!
November Wrap Up.
Lets talk books for November. I only read about 5 books, and two of them were rereads. I read The Problem with Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout, which was my first book by that author. I own a few of her books, so if you have any recs on what I should read next by this author, please let me know. I reread A Thousand Pieces of You and Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray so that I could read the final book in the series, A Million Worlds with You. This was the perfect ending to the series, and I’m really sad that I’m finished with that series.
I also finished up The Blazing Star by Imani Josey. I’ve been talking about this book on social media a lot because I’ve been super excited about it. I’ll be posting a review of the book tomorrow for a blog tour, so be on the lookout for that.
Other than those books, I didn’t get anywhere near where I wanted to be in terms of reading. I’m getting back into reading now, so expect a few more reviews for the rest of the year.
Honestly, for December, I’m just hoping to read the books that I thought I would read in November. I’m also trying to read more diverse books, so I especially want to read Iron Cast by Destiny Soria and Written in the Stars by Aisha Saeed.
I took a poll on Twitter to decide my next read, and everyone voted for Heartless. I’ve always loved Marissa Meyer’s books, so I’m excited to read it soon!
Be on the lookout for my epic bookoutlet haul, my TBTB Secret Santa shenanigans, and a few giveaways. I’m hoping to close out the rest of the year with a bang before I officially start grad school in January!
Lets chat! What do you guys have planned in terms of reading for December? Read any good books you think I would like? Let me know!
