I honestly cannot believe November is over already. I don’t know where the time went, or what I did all month because I sure wasn’t reading! The bulk of my reading this month was done during the Anti-Bullying Readathon. I barely read anything outside of that week.
- Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy 4/5 stars ♥Favorite of the month♥ Amazon | Book Depository
- A Thousand Cuts by Simon Lelic 3/5 stars Amazon | Book Depository
- Wonder by R.J. Palacio 4/5 stars Amazon | Book Depository
- Cam Girl by Leah Raeder 3/5 stars Amazon | Book Depository
Books I’ve started reading but haven’t finished yet (most of these are from October, and I still haven’t finished them!):
- Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas
- Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling (audiobook)
- The Girl With All the Gifts by M.R. Carey
- Find Me by Romily Bernard
I’m still powering through Arrow, and I’m now on season 3, so I’m alternating between that and The Flash because they have parallel storylines. I’m finally almost caught up with the current season of The Vampire Diaries too. I was procrastinating watching the final few episodes of last season because I wasn’t sure what to think of Elena leaving. I liked the story the writers came up with to end Elena’s run on the show, and it was a nice change from the boring “kill off the character” that usually happens when an actor/actress leaves a series. I’ve been really enjoying the new season so far too. Bob’s Burgers is one of those shows I casually watch on Netflix when I’m eating dinner or working on a project and need something quick to keep me entertained. Every time I watch it I forget how funny it is! Check it out if you haven’t seen it yet.
And the most important thing I watched all month!!!!!!!!:
My amazing Totoro find:
I cannot believe that I found this on eBay for only $11!!!! This 2002 release is very difficult to find and it usually sells for $80-100 on eBay. It's out of print now because Disney rereleased it in 2010 with new voice actors, including Dakota Fanning. I've been so so excited all week, but I didn't want to get my hopes up until it arrived and I could play it to make sure it was really what I ordered! My Neighbor Totoro was my FAVORITE movie when I was a kid and I still love it. I'm so happy that I was finally able to find the version with the voice actors I grew up with. ☺️ #myneighbortotoro #totoro #miyazaki #studioghibli
I bought a Zentangle book this month, and I’ve been loving it so much so far. Here’s one of the pages I completed:
My cousin gave me a gigantic bag of fresh cranberries this month so I’ve been making tons of cranberry desserts!
