November 2018 Wrap-Up

Another month gone, one more to go!

November was a bit of a manic month for me, but also really awesome. I read more books this month than I had in a while (a whole five!), and I returned to my blog after an extended hiatus. Without further ado, here is my wrap up!

This has actually been one of my best reading months since school started in August and I’m feeling really proud of myself. Plus, I really enjoyed all the books I read! Win-win. 

  • Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen McManus | 5/5 stars 
  • What if It’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera | 5/5 stars
  • Say You’ll Remember Me by Katie McGarry | 5/5 stars
  • The Darkest Star by Jennifer L. Armentrout | 3.5/5 stars
  • Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay by J. K. Rowling | 5/5 stars

Best book of the book would definitely have to be What if It’s Us! While most of the books I read this month were 5 stars, that one takes the cake. I’d been worried that the brainchild of Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera wouldn’t live up to the hype, but I should have known I would love it with my whole heart. 

I’ve been away from this blog for a while, but I finally got back into it this month! As a result, I only have two posts to speak of. 

Again, as I’ve been away from blogging for a bit, I only just got into reading blog posts again! But I did really enjoy these three posts.

November was a big, but also busy month for me! 

I went to a writing conference at a college nearby, where I listened to a keynote speech by Jerry Spinelli, co-moderated a panel centered around diversity in publishing, and attended a fantasy writing workshop by Kelly Coon, whose debut YA book releases next year. 

Even more exciting, I ended up winning a fantasy short story contest held by Coon and getting published on her website. Ahh!

Even though I’m still far from reaching my Goodreads goal (11 books, to be exact), Mia and I have made a deal to do everything in our power to complete our goals this year. Wish me luck! (I’ll probably need it).

The Disasters by M. k. england

December isn’t usually a big month for YA releases, so I only have one that I’m really anticipating. I already placed it on hold at the library, so as soon as it comes out, it should be in my hands! This comedy sci-fi sounds delightful. December 18th, 2018.


And that’s a wrap on November. It’s hard to believe 2018 is almost over. I feel like it only just started. But December isn’t done quite yet, and there is still a lot of reading to be done!

What were your favorite books this month? Any posts you loved, from you or others? What books are you most anticipating in December? Any reading goals you’re hoping to reach before New Year’s? Tell me in the comments! 🙂

Stay bookish,
