November Wrap-Up


So this was a TERRIBLE month for reading for me! I started and finished only TWO books this month and that’s just unacceptable to me, technically I read four books but I started and completed only two technically within this month. Although my blog posts didn’t suffer which is always good. 

I don’t think December will be MUCH better but since I have only one ARC to read this coming month I think I can get out of this small reading slump and power through some shorter reads.

Books Read This Month: 4

Glitter by Aprilynne PikeThis Is Our Story by Ashley ElstonTimekeeper by Tara SimFate of Flames by Sarah Raughley

Definitely didn’t read as many as I wanted to because these were ALL ARCs and I didn’t really get a chance to do any reading that wasn’t required. These were all kind of okay books with the exception of “This Is Our Story” which was excellent.

Technically I finished “Fate of Flames” yesterday but…still counting it.

    I’m sorry, but I didn’t really get this. You said at first you’ve read only one book, them you say you’ve read four.

      I went and reworded it, I forgot one book and didn’t edit it right away so thank you for catching that!
      What I meant was I started and finished only one book (which is 2 since I fixed it) this month. The other two I technically started one in October and the other I finished yesterday which is December but still included them in this wrap up even though I technically didn’t start and finish those all in the same month.
      Still kind of confusing but I hope that helps! πŸ™‚

    Reading slumps sucks for sure! At least you’re reading something, it will always lead to more books! πŸ™‚

      Thanks Nicole! You’re absolutely right! I’m going to try and read something that really interests me I find that to be one of the best ways to get out of a slump! πŸ™‚

    Slumps are the roughest sometimes. I think it is something a lot of us are struggling with lately, or maybe it just feels that way? November was over in a blink. I feel like I accomplished nothing. You didn’t do as bad as you think πŸ™‚

      I think the holidays are usually tough on all of us because there’s so much going on and I personally find it hard to get time to read. Thanks Danielle! πŸ™‚

      Awesome! I wish I could get that many read in a month, maybe one day haha. Sorry to hear your blogging wasn’t so great! I feel like we either have a great reading month or blogging month and never in between, haha! πŸ™‚

    Gosh, been reading about a bunch of people in slumps. November has been evil for certain bookworms! Hope December will be a better month for you! I mean, you are, after all, about to read Gemina (a great thing!) πŸ˜€
