November Wrap Up

As we approach the festive season, blasting Wham, shopping on streets lit up with welcoming balls of yellow light, furniture crammed into odd corners to make way for decorations, shops overflowing with Christmas offers and colourful window displays, we’re saying goodbye to November.

November saw my blog take a slight backseat as I rushed to tap out 50,000 for NaNoWriMo. I achieved 22,200 words in the end, which is better than I ever thought I could do and an improvement over last year!

November Wrap Up

What I Read

  • The Deathless Girls
  • Two Can Keep a Secret
  • Normal People
  • Vengeful

What I Did

The first and most exciting part of November was being an usher at my old university house mate’s wedding. The day started with panic, as most of my days do: my heels were out of commission given ushers are required to walk and I was wearing a pair of blue sandals that didn’t at all go with my knee length red dress. My friend, Esther, ended up painting my toenails red, stretched out across my bathroom floor while I did my teeth, because a last minute and fruitless attempt to find shoes had led me to the charity shops that morning. We scribbled the card out in the car and managed to make it early for the wedding for my important ushering duties. I’d met the other ushers at the stag and we were good friends by now so it was great to see them, and of course the wedding was lovely and very Phil and Jenny. The day ended with me sprinting in bare legs, and open toed shoes on a very cold and wet November, attaching tin cans to the back of their car and filling the inside with balloons.

The next weekend saw a cold trip to Winchester for board games and smoothies with my little brother. We must have looked particularly hopeless in the board game cafรฉ because some other patrons came over to give us advice on how to play one of the games.

The final exciting part of November has to be Fake Christmas. It started with pizza and Winter Wonderland with two of my university friends before I took a bus up to my old school friends house. It’s a yearly tradition we’ve upheld since leaving school that we have a fake Christmas each year for present giving, films and food. With me out the country for most of December we moved our tradition to November.

On the last weekend of November I visited a castle with my boyfriend, which is hardly surprising. We wondered round the old ruins, blame the civil war and some pesky kids on bonfire night who somehow set the last remaining tower alight. This castle had a particularly gory history: from wives locking their husbands in furnaces so they can marry again to mad husband’s locking their wives in towers to weird Victorians drinking grave fluid on holiday. The Victorians were a very weird and gross people is what I’ve learnt from all this. The day continued in Dryham park were we had a autumnal walk around the large grounds, tried some 19th Century Hot Chocolate, which is fabulous and strangely like chai with all the spices added, before wondering round the grand old house. All in all, a pretty fun date.

Let’s Compare Notes

What was the highlight of your November? Did you attempt NaNoWriMo? Let me know in the comments.

October Wrap Up

Not just is October over but Blogtober is also over! Which means I can finally stop posting daily. Although I did get through many of my drafts I still have 65 waiting to be published (I know, I may actually have a problem…), so I don’t think this will be the last mass posting before the year is out. As we enter a new month and I take on a new challenge (NaNoWriMo, what am I doing) let’s have a look back at the month that’s just been.

Things I Read

๐Ÿ“š A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue – although I did enjoy the novel I found the plot a tad unrealistic and that kept taking me out of the story.

๐Ÿ“š The Dream Thieves – as much as I love the plot, writing style and pacing this novel always feels more like a spin off or a standalone, since it doesn’t progress the Glendower quest at all.

๐Ÿ“š Blue Lily Lily Blue – continuing on The Raven Boys theme I finished the third in the series! Can I finish the fourth before November 5th?!

๐Ÿ“š Stalking Jack the Ripper – It was creepy and stomach turning yet still brilliant.

Things I Said

๐ŸŠ Red Queen – Why I didn’t enjoy this clichรฉ dystopian and how it upset my little feminist heart.

๐ŸŠ 10 Terrible Titles I’ve Kindly Rewritten – This post was so much fun to write. Just describing why each titles needed a rewrite was brilliant.

๐ŸŠ Immaturity of Youth in YA – I wrote about the perception of teenagers and young adults in YA and whether they are growing up too fast.

๐ŸŠ National Day Tag – This unusual tag was so much fun to do!

Things I Read

We made a Blogtober support group so here and my favourite posts from my blogtober pals.

๐ŸŽƒ Five Star Reads in Fiveย Words – This post is such a good idea! All reads should be summed up in 5 words. I haven’t read any of the books but a lot were on my radar and the five words actually helped me decide if I’d read them!

๐ŸŽƒ Apps I Use to Track My Reading – I never thought about tracking my reading through an app, although I do vaguely use Goodreads… sometimes. Anyway here’s a detailed list of apps Naomi has used with many pretty pictures!

๐ŸŽƒ Autumn Book Tag – Not only does Northern Plunder manage to keep a horror theme all Blogtober but all her posts felt super relevant to the season! This one included! I loved the pretty autumnal pictures and I would defo got to a Halloween party as Karou too.

๐ŸŽƒ Things I don’t Like about Fall – A controversial post full of pumpkin spice and pretty fall leaves.

Things I Did

๐Ÿ‘ป Go to France – my friends and I brought way too many jumpers only to strip down to shorts and t shirts and cycle around the South of France for a few days

๐Ÿ‘ป Castley Birthday – it was my birthday! So yes, castles were involved. My boyfriend and I went on a rambly castles autumnal walk.

๐Ÿ‘ป Escape Room – For my friends stag we all wore a cardboard cut out of his face and got stuck in an escape room. We managed to escape with just four minutes to spare! Mostly because someone took a punt and jammed a random button on the bomb.

๐Ÿ‘ป Board Game Cafรฉ – My friends and I met up in London after work for board games and pizza, while they all admired my new wheels- a push scooter.

What’s coming Up

September Wrap Up

September was a month spent mostly in a suitcase for me. With travelling for work three times, hello Amsterdam, Manchester and Birmingham, it’s felt very intense and a bit tiring. But all this travelling did give me ample long train journeys and quiet hotel rooms in which I managed to polish an impressive five novels!

What was your September like? Write anything interesting or do anything fun? Feel free to drop a link or opinion in the comments section.

What I Read

๐Ÿ“š Throne of Swans – Honestly, I was not a fan. The whole novel felt confusing and I really didn’t like the relationship slapped unnecessarily at it’s heart.

๐Ÿ“š The Raven Boys – I re-read this fantastic novel, re-entering the spooky forest and posh boys school that started this eerie yet entrancing series.

๐Ÿ“š Vox – After loving The Handmaid’s Tale I was intrigued to try it’s modern retelling, Vox, which was just as shocking and a tad more infuriating.

๐Ÿ“š Vicious – Having loved A Darker Shade of Magic I was excited and nervous to launch into Schwab’s university set adult fantasy about the lengths morally dubious men will go in the name of science.

๐Ÿ“š One of Us is Lying – Crime is not my genre and it’s been a good four years since I’ve been able to relate to teenagers at school. So you can imagine my surprise when I absolutely fell in love with the compelling characters driving this crime drama.

What I Wrote

๐Ÿงฆ Are these Over Hyped?! – The age old question we all have to wonder when we try a book that has been across Twitter and Instagram for basically a month. Here’s me questioning ten books on my TBR that might have too much hype now…

๐Ÿงฆ 30 Words I Learnt From Books – I made a list of words I learnt lately from reading! How many do you know?

๐Ÿงฆ My Fall TBR – I came up with another list of ten books to ignore over the next few months.

10 Snacks to Eat While Reading – Who doesn’t want to write about food? And books. The best combo.

What I Read Online

๐ŸŒ‚ 5 Tips for Getting Over a Slump – the post we all know we wanted, and honestly a lot of these work for me too! I often find music helps me concentrate weirdly enough.

๐ŸŒ‚ How to Read in Different Languages – I just got Harry Potter in French so could use all the tips!

๐ŸŒ‚ Into the Crooked Place Review – an insanely well formulated, charming and funny review. And I agree, the book is definitely worth four cats!

๐ŸŒ‚ Stalking Jack the Ripper Review – this lovely reviewer linked me to her review the other week for a novel I’m very excited to read this spooky season!

What I Did

โœˆ๏ธ Amsterdam – I ate far too many stoopwaffles, sat next to the canal and people watched in the sun, cycled around the city and even managed to attend the conference I was in the Netherlands for on the last few warm days of the year, at the beginning of September.

โœˆ๏ธ Wicked – Two of my friends celebrate their birthdays in September a mere day apart and we had a lot of fun cramming in sandwiches, a quick station catch up before falling in love with my favourite stage musical all over again.

โœˆ๏ธ Machine Learning Training – I went for some computer science training up in Manchester this month which has got me dangerously considering stepping back into the murky and stressful world of education.

โœˆ๏ธ Beam Engines at Night– Have you ever wanted to see a piece of industrial architecture, like a beam engine that pumps water up and down a canal, at night? Well I got to live that dream, and it was fantastic. Also tickets included paella so I can hardly not have enjoyed it.

July Wrap Up

We’ve seen summer, we’ve seen winter, we’ve seen thunder and lightning and record breaking heat all in one week. Yep, it’s July and apparently the most unpredictable month of the year.

Heres what I did in July, would love to hear about anything you read/wrote/did this month in the comments!

What I Read

๐ŸŽถ The Handmaid’s Tale – I got a chilling audiobook from Penguin

โ™ฅ๏ธ Heartless – this novel was just amazing. I’m so excited to share with you all what I thought

What I Read Online

๐Ÿ“– Am I a Seasonal Reader? – Another big question! That is answered here with pretty graphs and stats. My favourite type post- including books and maths.

๐Ÿ“– Should Stats Dictate Posts – There’s definitely a theme of big questions going on here… Do you let stats dictate your posts? Discussed over here.

๐Ÿ“– Book Blogging Hop – I love the idea of this blogging hop and was very grateful my blog was visited! I have hopped a few time and think it’s a great meme.

What I Did

๐Ÿ“š YALC – The best event of the year, I enjoyed a weekend of books, fun and lots of sugar with my pals, all detailed in my wrap up post.

๐Ÿ“š Camping – My friends and I pitched a tent in the new forest and enjoyed long walks and BBQ’d food for a whole weekend

๐Ÿ“š Rowing – My brother and I hired a boat and went for a little row for a day, which was both fun and tiring as we chased duck with out oars.

๐Ÿ“š Picnicking a Plenty! I went quite a few picnics with work friends, with food and rounders a plenty. Although I ended up eating far too much home made falafel

June Wrap Up

It may not have slipped your notice that is now July. The month of YALC and our annual heatwave (pretty please). Here’s how I spent the first month of summer: June.

What I Read

๐ŸŒณ Uprooted – loved the world, loved the plot, hated the characters. Anyone else?

๐ŸŒณA Curse so Dark and Lonely – curse was pretty dark and everyone seemed quite lonely, so all in all a success!

๐ŸŒณ Some of Moby Dick – I don’t know if I’ll get back to it or not, but let’s just say the riveting talk of whaling doesn’t have me hooked.

๐Ÿฅ€ Had a sunny picnic – it got to the balmy heights of 35 degrees here in London so my friends and I grabbed a picnic blanket and some questionable snacks, that may have been left out in the sun the weekend before, and headed for a sunny hill.

๐Ÿฅ€ Did a 10k– I did my first official run, in what was apparently a challenging and not beginner friendly route. Yuck, all the hills.

๐Ÿฅ€ Visited another Castle – is there a month when I don’t visit a castle, somewhere? This time it was the lovely Arundel.

April Wrap Up

Ok, literally where did April go? I’m fairly sure I only realised it was April in the middle of the month ๐Ÿ˜‚ anyway, another month means another wrap up! Here are my four favourites in these categories this month!

Books I Read

๐Ÿ“š Circe – finished my first Audiobook and I would highly recommend! It was excellent

Things I Did

๐ŸŒป Loved the Sunny Bank Holiday- I spent most of it outside, going for massive long walks with friends, picnics, and even visiting a castle ruin with my boyfriend. I feel made the most of my four warm days off, I even have the tan to prove it.

๐ŸŒป Ate Greek food with my pals- I haven’t had Greek food since I went island hopping (I know mad!). It wasn’t exactly authentic but I had a great day shopping for hours, slurping milkshakes and chatting books with my friends.

February Wrap Up

Hello bookworms! And normal worms. And non worms. Sorry, I’ll stop talking about worms now. As you know the bizarrely warm month of February has just ended, ridiculously early because it’s a tiny month. Like seriously I nearly forgot to pay my rent, it was so short. But the end of the month means another wrap up! Here’s how I spent the month, in books, on the blog and offline (๐Ÿ˜ฑ)

What I Read

๐Ÿ“š Daughter of Smoke and Bone – this novel was just amazing. Easily my favourite read of the month.

๐Ÿ“š Alex and Eliza – in contrast this novel was terrible. Possibly my lowest star rating on the blog, ever.

๐Ÿ“š Huckleberry Finn – my classic of the month, prepare for all my opinions in my upcoming review!

What I Wrote

๐Ÿ–‹๏ธ Gilmore Girls Challenge Episode One – since research for this post involved watching TV it was of course fun to write

What I Read Online

๐Ÿ’ป Is it Fair to Judge Old Books Based on Todays Standard’s – such an interesting post! And something I’ve often wondered about and discussed with my boyfriend.

๐Ÿ’ป The Sunshine Blogger Award – I was very honoured that someone answered my bizarre questions!

What I Did

โ›ณ Mini Golf– but London style. The balls were electric, the pizzas had a sourdough base, a man in a red jacket stood nearby to bring us drinks and the holes included a half pipe, a general knowledge quiz where your ball answers for you and a game of beer pong but with golf thrown in there.

๐ŸŽญ Hamilton– I saw this sensational musical with my friends and it was excellent ๐Ÿ˜

โ˜ƒ๏ธ Snowball Fight– my friends from school visited and we had a very fun snowball fight on my local marsh. Because I live in the country now and we have a local marsh.

โ˜• Cream tea– some friends from university visited and we curled up in front of the fire and enjoyed a cream tea at a local cafรฉ

January Wrap Up

How is the first month of 2019 over so quickly? Wasn’t it news years just yesterday?! Maybe that’s just me though… Anyway, on with the wrap up!

Books I Read

๐Ÿ“š A Gathering of Shadows – what a cracking start to the year with a VE Schwab.

๐Ÿ“š Legendary – because when I unwrapped it at Christmas we all knew it wasn’t going to stay unread very long.

๐Ÿ“š Northanger Abbey – just finished this a few days before the month ended and it was brilliant ๐Ÿ˜

The Best Posts I Wrote

โœ๏ธ 2019 Releases I’m Excited For – the list has probably grown considerably since I wrote it but I still really enjoyed looking at the great year of books ahead!

โœ๏ธ Best Books I Read in 2018 – then I had a little look back at the great books just read.

โœ๏ธ Legendary Review – all my opinions jotted down for this excellent novel that I was dying to read!

โœ๏ธ An Interview with Author Rick Lenz – my first author interview on my blog! Was very exciting to try interviewing someone!

Best Blog Posts I Read

๐Ÿงฆ Saturday Spotlight: Enchantee – I am so excited for this novel and very pleased this blogger chose to feature it, although it has made my need to read it even more pressing!!

๐Ÿงฆ Sunshine Bloggers Award – not only was I very honoured to be tagged but this bloggers answers are great!

๐Ÿงฆ On The Come Up Review – I wish I could have the finesse this blogger shows in this review, and when can I read the book ๐Ÿ˜

Things I Did

๐Ÿ• A 6 mile walk and Pub Lunch – we all walked down the river to the next village over and had a pub lunch, which was amazing. My friend’s from London have taken to calling my house their country residence!

๐Ÿ• Top Golf – I went to Top Golf with some mates, where you wack golf balls into rings and get points based on if you hit them. It’s sort of like a Wii game in real life!

๐Ÿ• Watched jam lava spill over my boyfriend’s father – my boyfriend’s uncle bakes these amazing cakes and it was his four year old son’s birthday. He asked for a dinosaur volcano cake which meant jam lava sprayed out the top of the chocolate volcano and sadly covered a few party guests.

Let’s Compare Notes

Things I’ve Done

๐ŸงI saw Matilda! A very nice birthday gift I went to the Cambridge Theatre, London and saw the Matilda Musical! My friend knows I like both books and musicals so the gift was pretty perfect!

๐ŸงI played way too much Catan! Two of my friends from uni came to stay over and we played way too many board games then went for a fun countryside walk.

๐ŸงI went to the Student Radio Awards! I attended the awards at the O2 in the VIP section, which was amazing. I could never afford to go as a student when I was actually doing student radio so this was very cool.

๐ŸงI had my first Christmas! Might seem very early but last weekend I went to a friend’s for “fake Christmas” which included a sleepover, Christmas food, Christmas film’s and charades. They even woke us up with stockings!
