Month in Review: November 2018

November was a weird month, does anyone else agree with that? The beginning of November feels like it happened so long ago, yet I also can't believe it's December. The weather is finally starting to cool off around here (of course, being a SoCal native that could just mean it's sixty degrees ¯\_(ツ)_/¯) and we got a nice day of rain, so it is truly starting to feel more like the holiday season, which I'm really excited for. It was also an exciting month because I finally got to see some bands (Underoath and The Plot In You) that I've been wanting to see live for ages--one, Underoath, I've been a fan of since I was about 11 or 12, so this was a long time coming. I hope everyone had a great month and a great Thanksgiving if you celebrate!

In reading news, it was a decent reading month. I was a little slump-y still at times, but I managed to get through some really fantastic books all the same, including to five stars--Once Upon a River and Empire of Sand! How was your month of reading!?

  1. Winter has already come to NJ, we've had our first snow! Hurray for two 5-star reads in a month!

  2. You had a fantastic month! I unfortunately didn't get to Empire of Sand, but I'm going to try to pick it up this month. And yay for that glorious day of So Cal rain! I was hoping it would last longer, but it was a nice change 😁

  3. Awesome wrap-up! I agree, November was a wicked weird month. I can't wait to hear about the Underoath show!! Enjoy!
