November 2017 Wrap-Up!

Welcome to another monthly wrap-up everyone! Looking back, November was a pretty long month but it felt like it flew by. Can you believe it's already December?! Get ready for a jam-packed month of 2017 wrap-up posts, more book reviews, and hopefully a Christmas giveaway?

Anyway, this month I read 5 books, none of which were on my monthly TBR. I'm a little annoyed at myself that I wasn't able to read more, but I also was super busy with school and social life, plus Netflix was calling my name. However, I'm in a really big 'I want to read everything right now!' mood, so hopefully December will be better. Especially since my last class is on the 6th and I only have two finals before a month-long winter break. 

On top of reading 5 books, I bought 8 books and some amazing nerdy merch (check out my haul here). I also was able to put out 8 blog posts, which I expect to pass, if not double, in December. I watched some new shows and movies that I'll also be talking about below. And then I'll be finishing off with some of my favorites for the month of November. 



Title: The Princess Saves Herself in This One
Author: Amanda Lovelace
Rating: 5/5 stars
I found so much of myself reflected in these pages. I have no words to say other than it was inspirational and heart-wrenching and one of the first steps towards my own self-healing.

Title: Four Psychos
Author: Kristy Cunning
Rating: 5/5 stars
I loved this book. I can't wait until the next one comes out. I thought that this book was so different and unique. I felt like it was a mixture between the book, Trickery, and the TV show, Being Human. The plot was interesting and the characters were hilarious. I can't wait for the second book to be released. 

Title: Academy of Assassins
Author: Stacey Brutger
Rating: 4.5/5 stars
I really enjoyed this book. I don't want to spoil anything about the ending, so I'm not going to go much into the little details that I loved. Just know that I adored this book. The concept was so cool and the characters gave me life. I am appreciative of the realistic, slow-burn romances and relationships. I'm also pretty proud of this book for surprising me and successfully pulling off plot twists, as I usually can see them coming from a mile away. This book was longer than some other RH books that I've read and it was so good because of that. I can't wait for the next one--I know it will be just as good and, hopefully, just as long. 

Title: Trickery
Author: Jaymin Eve and Jane Washington
Rating: 5/5 stars

Title: Persuasion
Authors: Jaymin Eve & Jane Washington
Rating: 5/5 stars

1. American Horror Story: Murder House (Season 1 of AHS)
I have no clue why I haven't watched American Horror Story before this month. I think I just expected it to be a lot scarier than it actually was. I binge-watched it and really enjoyed it. I can't wait to watch the next season (I'm currently two or three episodes in and enjoying it...I've only heard amazing things about this season). Plus, I'm definitely now a huge Evan Peters fan, not gonna lie. 

2. Seasons 1 and 2 of Stranger Things
I can't believe it took me this long to watch Stranger Things. However, I'm so glad that when I finished the first season, I could just jump straight into the second. I watched the entire thing with a friend and we both adored it. I can't wait for more, especially of Mama Steve. I have some fan theories about what season 3 will consist of but I'm going to keep them to myself for now until I develop them a little more. 

3. Suicide Squad
I finally watched this after so many people telling me that it wasn't as good as they expected, and I was pleasantly surprised. There were some things that could have been done better, but overall it was a great movie that I really enjoyed and will be rewatching again. 



Candy: Definitely Reese's. Always a classic. I also discovered Junior Mints for the first time and I think they'll be a new favorite soon. 


Music: I've been listening to Hozier quite a bit, but I'm also going back to an old obsession and made a new Backstreet Boys playlist that I've been listening to quite a bit. I also am quite partial to party jams on Saturday nights. 

Chill-Activity: Netflix and Naps. Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp also released on iOS this month and I've been playing that shit non-stop. 


Thanks for reading! Stay tuned for more :)
