October/November Wrap-Up!

monthly wrapup.jpg

I’m combining October and November’s wrap up for a couple of different reasons!

  1. It’s already December 16, and before I know it I’ll be doing December’s wrap-up
  2. I was in a reading/blogging slump in October, so not much bookishness occurred.
  3. I was in a major blogging slump in November, so not much blogging happened…

Okay, here we go…

BOOKS READ

October

october-wrap-up

– All Her Secrets by Kate Avery Ellison \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I also read a few of the stories in Slasher Girls and Monster Boys, but not enough to give a rating. I plan to finish it next October, or whenever I’m in the mood for some scary stories. I will say I did enjoy the stories I read so far, though!

CLASSIC OF THE MONTH

The book slump struggle is  r e a l !  I ended up not reading a single classic in October or November for the Pretty Books 2016 Classic Challenge! 🙈

 

BOOK HAUL

I didn’t read a lot, and luckily, I didn’t buy a lot!  I did receive All Her Secrets and All I Want for Christmas to review through Netgalley.  I also received Jane of Lantern Hill to review from Sullivan Entertainment.  I also received the Angel Eyes trilogy by Shannon Dittmore through a contest!

Aside from that, I only bought one book: What Light by Jay Asher.

MISCELLANEOUS

Movie Monday #2 finally happened!

I participated in the All Her Secrets blog tour!  That was my first real blog tour I participated in, and it was so much fun!

I also participated in a Halloween Read-a-Thon.  I ended up not doing as well as I planned, but it was still fun!

In late November, I also started a Christmas Countdown – #1, #2!

Also, I’m now an affiliate with the Book Depository!  Basically, what that means is if you buy something using my links to the Book Depository I get a tiny percentage.  So, I’d really appreciate it if you’d consider using my links while shopping at the Book Depository. 🙂 There are links at the side and bottom of my blog, as well as whenever I include a buy link for a specific book from Book Depository in any of my posts.

That wraps up October and November.  Only one more wrap up for 2016 left!
