Monthly Review – November

November was a whirlwind month for me. I don’t know about you but I am glad it’s over.  This month, we traveled more than 1,500 miles!! You’d think with all that car time I would have killed my TBR list (you’d be wrong). I’m also finishing up the writing of my proposal and the semester is [finally] coming to an end.

To catch you up on what I’ve been doing this month, I’ve made up 6 categories that I think are important and I will tell you a little about my life through them. As always, I love hearing from you and I encourage you to tell me a little about your month in the comments below!Slide1

As a book blogger, this is seriously depressing. This month I read one book – Little Fires Everywhere. It was really good and I’m still working on the review. But one book, really Molly?

What have you read this month? Anything I should put on my TBR list?

Slide2

This is a hard category, I think it would be Holiday Reading or Thanksgiving Readathon. There is something about making reading lists that is just so satisfying!

What was your favorite post this month?

Slide3

I have to go with my Top Ten Most Intimidating Books. I’m pretty sure it only got 2 views (and they were probably from my sister). Putting my fears into words was difficult and I would’ve loved to hear people tell me if books on my list were worth reading or not.

Slide4

This is my favorite category! There are so many amazing bloggers out there and I enjoy that I get the chance to share my favorites with you!

  1. Thanksgiving Readathon from Ottavia  @ Novels and Nonfiction AND Jackie @ Death by Tsundoku. I can’t get over how much I enjoyed this. It was really amazing to be part of the blogging community and take on this challenge with a BUNCH of other readers.
  2. Gift Guide: Gifts for Book Lovers that AREN’T Books from Jamie @ The Perpetual Page Turner. I’m pretty sure I will never get through one of these posts without mentioning her. I just admire her so much and she writes such engaging posts. This one is my favorite this month, but seriously just check her blog out. I am also in love with her post from Wednesday about Planning for a Kickass New Year because I am all for planning and I need to get my booty in motion on this front.
  3. This blankey pattern from LoveCrochet. We’re going to have a nephew in a little under two months and, despite the fact that I’ve been saving cute patterns on Pinterest for YEARS, this one I just found seems perfect. I can’t wait to make it!

I really need to keep a running list of these… There are so many that I enjoyed over the last 30 days, but I can’t seem to think of them/find them again. If you’re a blogger, is there somewhere you keep a list of other blogs you love?

Slide5

  • To keep killing these posts on my blog 😉 I’ve been posting every Monday and this system is really working well. I have some pretty exciting posts planned, so make sure you check back to see them all!
  • To finish with a 4.0 semester (it’s looking good, but it doesn’t come easy)
  • To READ!! I have 4 books left in my Goodreads challenge, and I AM GOING TO REACH IT! So HOPEFULLY you will find a bunch of reviews on the blog this month.

Slide6

  • The end of the semester. I don’t know why, but every time we come to this part in the semester I am just so glad it’s over. By the time we start again in January, I’m ready, but this break can’t come soon enough.
  • CHRISTMAS!! (you knew that was coming, didn’t you?) It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
  • Zach’s graduation from college ❤ I’m such a proud wifey that he will have his engineering degree in just a couple short weeks. It also means we get to see all of our family not once, but twice this December.
  • Setting new years goals.

 

Let’s talk! Tell me anything that’s going on in your life this month!

Final Thought: I need a mental health day to catch up on my reading.
