November Wrap Up


Paper Girls, Vol. 3 (Paper Girls, #3) Incarnate (Newsoul, #1) Holes What to Say Next
This latest episode of Paper Girls was kind of weird, I definitely was left with more questions than answers again, and I'm intrigued how its all going to come together as some stage (or if it ever does?)

Of course because its coming to the end of the year, I decide its a good time to start another series with Incarnate (instead of finishing the piling list I have). It's got some interesting ideas about reincarnation which are pretty unique and the story was pretty good if a little lagging sometimes. Holes, was my favorite book of the month. It got me out of my reading slump as it always does. One of my favorite childhood books. 

What to Say Next was also a great read this month, about an unlikely friendship between a popular girl whose recently lost her father and the 'odd' boy at school who has Aspergers. Very sweet and funny, but also addressing the cruelty of others for being 'different'. 

Up Next In December

I have high hopes for my reading in December. I'm taking annual leave in a few weeks till early January so I'm hoping to dedicate some of my time to finishing my Goodreads challenge, amongst all the Chrsitmas prep and holiday madness. So far on my list I have. 

    Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass, #3) The Upside of Unrequited Kiss Kill Vanish  

Asunder (Newsoul, #2) Always and Forever, Lara Jean (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #3)

Other Updates 

I really enjoyed using my bullet journal this year to document all my crazy lists and notes. I was good at updating these things throughout the year, but I was quite bad at setting up each month for everyday life tracking and planning. 

Unfortunately that also means I'm left with a whole bunch of empty pages in my bullet journal which seems like a waste. I think next year I am going to revert back to a planner for everyday use for my tasks, and use a smaller moleskine journal for my fun list making and goalsetting etc. 

For those of you who used bullet journals, how did you find them? Any adjustments for next year?

Thanksgiving Book Tag

OK, so we don't actually do Thanksgiving down here in little old New Zealand (and it's been over a week since Thanksgiving)  but I thought i'd give this one a go. 

This tag was originally put up by Fangirlscity on Youtube- go HERE to check out their video. 

Kiss Crush Collide
BREAD- What book is purely fluff, and has no real plot line?

 Kiss Crush Collide

One of the first books I ever reviewed on my blog, and it was complete and utter fluff (but not even good fluff unfortunately)

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea (Between, #1)

 Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

 It wasn't completely bad, but it was a great cure for my insomnia. Maybe it was the overly descriptive prose that lulled me off to sleep i'm not sure.

The One (The Selection, #3)

The One

This is a hard one for me since I am chronic for not finishing series. I loved all the books in this series, but this one was by far my favorite, because everything gets wrapped up and everything turned out how I wanted it.

Not a Drop to Drink (Not a Drop to Drink, #1)

 Not a Drop to Drink

Wow, this book (and it's sequel) are super packed with all the action and drama you could ask for. It was one of my top books of last year and will definitely be reread in the future. 

Biggest Flirts (Superlatives, #1)

Biggest Flirts

I was really excited for this series, but felt really let down by this book. I found it hard to connect with the main character and that impacted my enjoyment. The other books in the series feature different characters so I might give those a go.


The Avery Shaw Experiment

This book is so sweet and the budding romance between Avery and Grayson is adorable especially since they've known each other since they were kids, but Grayson has only ever seen Avery as his annoying little brother best friend. 

Fallen (Fallen, #1) 


 Probably longer than it needed to be really. End of story.



This is one of my favorite childhood books and it never fails to get me back into reading. 

I'm not that familiar with traditional Thanksgiving foods but I love a good baked/glazed ham and I am definitely having one at Christmas time. Delicious!
