Hello again, everyone! Can you believe it’s already November 1st? This year is seriously flying by. I have to apologize again for the fact that I’m a little behind on my reviewing, but I’m really hoping to catch up soon. I particularly can’t wait to share my love for Susin Nielsen and Neil Patrick Harris’ autobiography with you all; I went into them with low expectations and they completely blew me away. Though, overall I’d have to say this was a great reading month. (The strength of the books I read may explain why I was able to read 11 books in October!)
This month was a busy one. I turned 24 this past Monday, and I’ve got to say: I have a lot to be thankful for. I’ve already expressed my love for blogging and the bookish community, but I really can’t stress it enough. This past year has been so much more fulfilling and meaningful thanks to this small corner of the internet. For fear of being repetitive I’ll leave it at that, but please know that I’m grateful to all of you who read my blog (and those who don’t, too).
I know I don’t talk about music that often on my blog, but I’ve been obsessed with Taylor Swift’s new album, 1989, since it released on my birthday (!!) and I thought that deserved a mention. I haven’t always been a huge Taylor Swift fan, but this album is really winning me over. (So catchy! So danceable! So fun!)
How was your October? Did you do anything special for Halloween? Did you read any scary books? (I’m too much of a scaredy cat to read anything too spooky…) What are you reading now?
