October 2017 Wrap-Up


I only read 3 books this month. I was hoping to get to more, but between school and actually having a social life for once, I had very little time to read. Hopefully November will be better...let's just jump in.

Title: Tower of Dawn
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Rating: Infinity stars

Title: Delicate Beauty
Author: Nikki Bolvair
Rating: 4/5 stars
Let's be completely honest, I definitely read this entire novel in Econ class instead of paying attention. I was hooked from when I began. I really enjoyed this book. I thought the writing was so easy and flowed well. I'm excited for more of this series. Plus, that smut was so freaking good! 

Title: Whispers From the Dead
Author: B.L. Brunnemer 
Rating: 5/5 stars
This was short, which I expected, but I wish I hadn't blown through it so fast. I think that because it was so short, it was more of a novella than an installment. It passed by so quickly and I already miss the characters and the plot. We're not going to be getting the next book until maybe April (don't mind me just crying in a corner). There were many feels and my heart hurt quite a bit. I can't wait to reread it (probably very soon). 



I posted 8 blog posts in the month of October, ranging from hauls to reviews to book tags to more! Check them out below!

I'm just going to chat a little bit about what I'm currently obsessed with at the closure of this fabulous month of October.
  • Candy: Reese's peanut butter cups (specifically the pumpkin ones), but also kit kats. 
  • Clothing: I've been wearing my super comfy sweatpants quite a bit and, as it's been colder, I've also been wearing my "Rattle the Stars" beanie from September's Fairyloot. Both are so comfy and warm. 
  • Music: The past few days I have been listening nonstop to "Slipping Away" by Jacob Miller, Matt Naylor & Steven Stern. It's so powerful and I love it. I've also been listening a lot to Hozier, specifically "In A Week (feat. Karen Cowley)," "Work Song," "Sedated," and "Jackie and Wilson". That whole album is just fantastic. Lastly, "More Than You Know" from Axwell ^ Ingrosso is excellent.
  • TV/Movie: I haven't been consistently watching much, but I have been watching the new show on NBC called The Brave. I've also been rewatching H2O: Just Add Water when I'm bored and need a moment. I haven't watched many movies this month, but I did rewatch Spiderman: Homecoming, which is my favorite movie. I also watched some Halloween movies with my friends.


Oct 1: Pledge Ceremony for Alpha Phi Omega

Oct 6-7: Homecoming!!! I was in the parade with Alpha Phi Omega and then we had our football game. I also chilled a while with my friends just in the dorm. It was a pretty fun day.

Oct 11: First College Concert: Themed "The Call"

Oct 14: My dad, his girlfriend, and her daughter visited and we spent some time on campus and in Chicago.

Oct 15: I finally saw my best friends when I went home on break. I also picked up a shift at work and got to see all my favorite doggos and coworkers!

Oct 16: I got to pick up another shift at work while home on break. I also saw my niece (aka my favorite living being) and chilled with my family.

Oct 17: I visited my old high school, mostly to see my choir instructor and Snowball sponsor.

Oct 21-22: Our school had their Halloween ACP (All Campus Program). It was essentially just a giant dance. My friends and I got ready together, hung out before the ACP, and then had a blast.

Oct 22: It was a kickball tournament for a philanthropy event for another frat. My frat had 2 teams show up and I'm happy to report that we can 2nd and 3rd. Woohoo.



Thanks for reading! I hope you all had an excellent October and that November will be 10x better! NaNoWriMo is starting today and I'm just a bit nervous about it as I already have no motivation to write...
