It was a pretty good reading month, that I can tell you. Yet a month has it’s own ups and downs. I will start with the downs first.
- I quit NaNoWriMo.
- Problems. A lot. And if my Pocket Letter buddy is reading this, I hope she understands.
- In relation to #2, no gigantic haul too.
But of course, I know I will jump right back in the game in December. It may be the holidays, but that won’t stop me from doing anything. I wrote a lot of drafts and I plan to post them one by one during the holiday break. Plus I finally got a break. I got the best schedule for my 2nd term in uni. One more term till the thesis kicks in.
On the bright side, here are some of the good news.
- Despite quiting NaNoWriMo, I am still pushing through with my story. Project “Coding For Brains” is still in the works.
- My Pocket Letter buddy is in for a loot. I just need to find a way to send it.
- My giveaway winner will receive the best box ever, because it’s late.
- Since we planned to get back on our feet this December, *cross fingers on that huge haul*
Now for my wrap-up.
Books In The Freezer
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
I only have three books on my TBR because I want to start small. Despite sharing how it feels like to be a neurotic reader, I broke my book reading record. Also, I am pretty confident I can finish those books in December despite having my midterms yet again ^^. I can’t wait till I finish Carry On because I cannot put it down. I will be buddy reading Shadow and Bone with Maan from Pigeon Reads and Trisha from The Bookgasm. Also, Crown of Midnight will be a buddy read with MC at Blame It On The Books . Go say hi to them. They are all such wonderful people. ♡
Books I Read
The Manifesto On How To Be Interesting by Holly Bourne
Rating: 4.5 stars
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Rating: 4.5 stars
Mondomanila by Norman Wilwayco
Rating: 5 stars
Fateful Turns (#StrangeLit)
Rating: 5 to 2.5 stars (depending on the story)
See? It was a good reading month for me. I would have had given each of these books 5 stars. They were all so good. I want to keep gnawing on books. I just want to read and read. Although to be fair, Mondomanila was ridiculous and I had to consider if I wanted to pour holy water on my eyes. I still have to post my full review for Illuminae, because apparently some of the words on the review are deemed unappropriate. That was a side effect from Mondomanila. Blame that book.
I was a good bookworm for the latter part of November, immediately reading the books that I bought. *winks* No haul though. It’s all over my Instagram feed. Lol. I will probably just do another one in January.

Fateful Turns (#Strangelit)
Also, my Fangirl Corners are now scheduled every Sundays. Do you want to be featured in it? Just comment below. Cheers to the remaining month of the year.
Aye, what more can I say? Better than my October wrap-up, am I right?
