October and November 2017 Month in Review

October and November Month in Review banner

This post is linked up at the Wrap Up Round Up hosted by Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction.

End of term is upon me! Yesterday was my last lecture. I have two final projects due next week, but I’m not crunched for time. I can’t believe how fast autumn went by. I now face a whole month largely free of academic obligations. How exciting! Is that enough time to catch up on my Goodreads goal, which I’m behind on by 25 books? Well. We’ll see. I am looking forward to reading a pile of books this month, even if I can’t make my goal. I’m also looking forward to posting regularly again. I didn’t reach my mini goal of four posts per month in October and November – not sure why I thought I would have more time to blog once the term got going, haha. I’m going to try to make up for that, at least, by posting 10 times this month. Aside from reading and blogging, I’m also looking forward to going home from December 16 to January 3. I’ve heard the snow has melted, which is pretty devastating, so I hope it returns before I do!

  • Yeay for having the month of for the most part. I hope the snow will return for you. We hardly get real snow so I am keeping my fingers crossed we do get some this winter again.

  • You sound busy but glad to hear you are crunched for time. I had Elizabeth and Zenobia on my night stand and I couldn’t get to it! It expired on mt. I just requested it from the library again 🙂

    • Ahh, that’s happened to me on more than one occasion, haha. Looking forward to your thoughts once you get to read it!

  • Good luck with catching up on your Goodreads challenge. I hope you’re having a great December!
