November Monthly Wrap Up!

Hello little snowflakes!!  I hope everyone who celebrated had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I for one am completely still stuffed and plan to never look at turkey again...well until next year ;)  
This month was another amazing one for us filled with super fun blog tours and quite a few awesome books!  Here's how our month broke down...

For the month of November, I didn't tackle as many books as I thought I would. I added 9 completed reads to my bookshelf, but I did get a head start on my holiday reading! Here's my round-up!
Highest rated book -
Soundless by Richelle Mead. Amazing novel!
Lowest rated book -
Underneath Everything by Marcy Beller Paul. Not what I expected. :(
Special feature (most anticipated book, movie or trailer you're excited about) -
December marks the month I re-watch all of the Harry Potter movies, AND I'll be visiting the theme park in the beginning of the month. So, I'm really excited to dive into my annual tradition of Potter-fest!
What's on your tbr for next month-
For the month of December I plan to read more holiday novels and possibly get started on the second installment of Outlander. I can't wait for the next TV season to start!

Highest rated book-
Falling Kingdoms & Rebel Spring by Morgan Rhodes...AMAZING series!!!!
Lowest rated book- 
Calling Maggie May by Anonymous 
Special feature- 
This month I am just excited to spend time with my family and bake, bake, bake!!  
What's on my TBR for next month-
After the Woods by Kim Savage, Gathering Darkness by Morgan Rhodes & Shallow Graves by Kali Wallace!
Highest rated book-
Though November wasn't the best reading month for me because of essays, thesis plans etc., I managed to read a couple of pretty amazing books. During November, I gave five star reviews to HIM by Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy (HOT HOCKEY GUYS ALERT!) and AFTER THE WOODS by Kim Savage.
Lowest rated book-
The Weight of Water by Sarah Crossan. It still got three stars though, so not bad at all!
Special feature-
Christmas is quickly coming, which means my favorite time of the year is upon us - THE HALLMARK COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS original movie marathon. I know I am supposed to be this serious film student, but there is just something about these films that I absolutely love. From the films released so far, ONCE UPON A HOLIDAY has been my favorite - it has a runaway princess, cute romance and an extremely handsome leading man.
And now that I have mentioned Hallmark, it is only fitting to mention a new TV show obsession I have, which is Hallmark Channel's original show WHEN CALLS THE HEART. I have been studying North American history this semester, and I love how the setting of this show kind of fits into what I've learned. The budding romance between the leads is to DIE FOR! And the male lead, Daniel Lissing, looks so good in a Mountie uniform.
What's on my TBR for next month-
I don't really know yet about my TBR for the month. All I know is that I at least want to read something Christmas related. So if you know any good Christmas books, leave me a recommendation! I also have THE GIRL FROM EVERYWHERE by Heidi Heilig still waiting on my Kindle and I am hoping to get into that one at some point in December.

Highest rated book-
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell - 5 Stars- So so so good!!
Lowest rated book-
MiNRS by Kevin Sylvester- 3.5 stars- Entertaining and fun!
Special feature-
Star Wars 7 baby!!!
What's on my TBR for next month-
Oblivion by Jennifer L. Armentrout and Untamed by A.G Howard- Gimme Gimme!!

Looks like next month will be filled with Christmas reviews LOL!  I hope everyone had a wonderful month as well and I can't wait to see how our December ends up!



  1. I really need to start doing monthly wraps! I managed 19 reads + 2 DNFs this month. Highest rated reads: The Rose Society by Marie Lu & Dreamer's Pool by Juliet Marillier. Lowest rated: The Sin Eater's Daughter by Melinda Salisbury.

    1. Wow, 19 books in a month - that is impressive! :)
      I bought a copy of The Sin Eater's Daughter back in like May, but I still haven't got around to reading it, mostly because reviews for it have been quite mixed.
      Thanks for stopping by Lakeisha!

  2. I am truly inspired by this online journal! Extremely clear clarification of issues is given and it is open to every living soul. I have perused your post, truly you have given this extraordinary informative data about it. Golf Betting Online Devisi Primera Spanyol
