November Monthly Wrap Up!

Off the Blog:

Hey everyone!  I had a pretty good month in November!  Lot's of great things happened this month.  First off, me and my family had a nice Thanksgiving dinner as we had turkey, collard greens, pies, cheesecakes, stuffing and macaroni and cheese and man, were we full after eating all of that food (actually we still have some Thanksgiving food left over).  Next, I've watched the "Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie" and I LOVED it!!!  The movie was both hilarious and dramatic and it really made my inner fan tremble with delight!  Now, let's see Nickelodeon do some revival movies of "The Angry Beavers" and "Rocko's Modern Life!"

On the Blog:

Unfortunately, my reading this month was pretty bad, due to having so much going on in November.  I didn't have any time to read new books and  even though I still participated in many book memes, I've only managed to read one book for the month (which is quite disappointing).  Hopefully, December will be a better month of reading and maybe I won't be too busy in December!

December TBR:

* I've haven't finished any books from this pile, but hopefully I'll finish some books for December!

This will be linked to The Book Date's Month in Review and A Cocoon of Books Best of the Bunch! 


  1. I also had a terrible reading month. There was just so much stuff going on. I hope you have a great December!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  2. I hope December will be a better reading month for you. I still have The Last Magician laying around to. I should get to that one.

  3. I hope you will accomplish more reading in December. I read Dark Lover, cool book. I have Me Before You I need to get to it.

  4. Hi,
    Haven't read any of your books, I'll be
    checking them out. Have a great day!

  5. So November got away from you - it happens and it is a busy month. All the best for the December plans for reading and of course the new year is a coming!

  6. Glad to hear you had a November with fun family time [man you made me hungry! lol] There are 5 books in your December TBR that I read or will read! I didn't like Me Before You at all but I did love Gone Girl and Miss Peregrine so I hope you love it too. I'm planning to read When Dimple Met Rishi in January

  7. I am glad you had a happy Thanksgiving and could enjoy food and fun with family. I read When Dimple Met Rishi and enjoyed the chemistry between the characters. Happy holidays!
