General, Wrap-Up

Very Quick November Wrap-Up!

I know, this is very very late again and I’ve been pretty much MIA for a good while. But I’ve had tons of things to do at work and for class, so that will continue to be my excuse! And I did do lots of things in November, but I sadly didn’t review many books (although I did read some–reviews are still forthcoming). So here’s a very quick wrap-up:

Books I Read

Turtles All the Way Down
by John Green
Published October 10thΒ 
5 Stars

This might be my favourite John Green book thus far. It had all the good things of all his best books put together, and I loved it. Review to come.

Renegades by Marissa Meyer
Published November 7th
4 Stars

This was a super fun book! Who knew superheroes translated so well to novel form? I had a couple of complaints, but nothing too major and they didn’t detract more than one star. Review to come!

 

Things I Did

  • I went to the Toronto Antique Book Fair at the start of the month (no post, but I’ll add some pictures of the first editions I saw at the end of this on).
  • I met MAGGIE STIEFVATER! You can read all about that insanity here.
  • I went to a Penguin Random House Kids/YA preview (no post again, but I did tweet about it).
  • I went to see Justice League and actually enjoyed it! I was pleasantly surprised.
  • I did not do much else, admittedly. I mostly just wrote assignments! November felt much busier than it really was, I suppose.

December Plans

  • Gift buying (of which I am halfway done).
  • Reviews!! I have to post my reviews for the two books I just talked about up there because it has been way too long.
  • Finish my second semester of the publishing certificate! I’m really, really enjoying it and I am sad that my courses are ending, but I am excited to see what my third semester will be like.
  • Visit my parents in Tampa! I’m leaving in about a week, and I still have to do laundry and pack everything.
  • READ. I have five ARCs queued up on my Kobo, and they are ready to go:
    • Olivia TwistΒ by Lorie Langdon
    • Zenith by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings
    • The Queen’s RisingΒ by Rebecca Ross
    • Honor Among Thieves by Rachel Caine
    • Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston

And that’s it! Now I have to get back to writing my final assignment for the semester so I can write my reviews and then work on a wrap-up post for the year. As promised, I’ll leave you with photos of some very old books.
