November ’19 wrap up and December TBR

Good morning bookworms! It’s time for the November wrap-up!

During November I read a very reasonable 10 books. Honestly it feels like that long ago I can barely remember it… but we are almost nearly halfway through December, so I imagine that it did happen!

If I start screaming about how The Queen of Nothing was my favourite book of the year month, can you just pretend to look a little bit surprised, and just let me scream into the abyss? Yes? Thanks, good. Words? Nah.

Uhhh… so, I’m basically just reading romance this month, as seen on Wednesday’s WWW post… Oh, and DB and I are finally going to buddy read Red Glove by Holly Black. Maybe even Black Heart! (Although, let’s not get too crazy…)

Honestly…? I don’t even know what I had for breakfast, let alone what I posted last month… I mean, I think I did another Overwatch recommendations post… Number 3?

I think it might have been a pretty quiet month. I did travel a bit…

I am catching up on blog-hopping, and have been all month, really. Some of these posts are from October; however, I loved them a lot during November, so please indulge me!! These are some of my faves that I saw:

  • Veronika @ Wordy Whimsical talked about hyped books on her TBR that she hasn’t read yet and why. Honestly this post just really spoke to me because I not only had some of the same books, but so many others on my TBR that are hyped that I just haven’t read yet.
  • Shealea @ Shut Up Shealea wrote a post about the discrimination in the Goodreads Awards, and it’s so true. Diverse authors are too underrepresented in all of the categories, and it’s shameful.
  • The Orangutan Librarian wrote a list of 11 amazing fantasy books for you all to read when the nights start getting cooler… (I think the dragons are here for the summer though, for which I apologise)
  • Marie @ Drizzle and Hurricane wrote a list of her favourite YA books, and it’s such an amazing list!!

Also, I found a few more people who did my prompts for Bookending Autumn, and I wanted to share them with you!

I think the SPL tag is still going around (which I am so confused by but also warmly loving) so, I can make this a regular feature if you guys want?!

November… what the hell happened in November? Also, why don’t I take notes during the month?!

I went to four book events in Canberra during November. There was:

  • the Garth Nix Angel Mage launch at Harry Hartog’s
  • the Maria Lewis, Daniel O’Malley *squeeeeeee* and Kaaron Warren event to launch Maria’s new book The Wailing Woman (but, I mean, I was 85% there for Daniel and I FINALLY have a signed copy of The Rook), also at Harry Hartog’s, and
  • two huge book sales, one at Harry Hartog’s and one at Dymocks.

What else? Oh, we’ve been eating a LOT of frozen custard. It’s definitely summer here at the moment. And fire season. Please have a thought for lots of Aussie’s who are homeless in the lead up to Christmas, and also lots of wildlife. I heard some crazy fact* that almost 1,000,000 koalas have been killed, injured or lost their habitat due to the fires in Australia already this year. And this is just the start of our hot season.

* I have no idea if this is true, but it sounds awful.

What did you do in November?

  1. I don’t know about the numbers but I’ve heard that a lot of koalas have died due to the wildfires. I’ve been watching the winter episodes of Animal Park based at Longleat in the UK and their comment yesterday was that their new koala breeding programme (one of the only kind in Europe) seems more important than ever after hearing that news.

    Moving on, it sounds like you had a fabulous reading and blogging month. I also know what you mean about your tag. I loved doing it but I did feel awkward posting it because it definitely feels like winter!!

  2. Thank you for highlighting my post, Meeghan!! I’m so glad you enjoyed it, and I’d love to see your version of it. 🙂 Red Glove is my favorite from the Curse Workers series, so I do hope you’ll enjoy it. The mystery part was obvious to me, but knowing the twist did not ruin the story at all. I’ve read about the fires in Australia, and I’m keeping you all in my thoughts – this is so scary and awful. 😐

    1. Thanks Veronika!! I really loved your post, and I can’t wait to write mine. I have a long list of posts I want to write at the moment. I just need to find time to do it. Please keep us in your prayers!! Our fire season is always bad, but this year seems to be particularly awful. 💕
