Hello everyone. Sorry for the delay in this wrap-up. I’m still trying to get my head around the fact that we’re in the last month of 2018. How has this year gone by so fast? I’ve only just gotten used to writing 2018!
So, once again I didn’t read a book in November. However, November was a slightly chaotic month for me. Basically, I’ve gone and got myself a third job and I think it’s safe to say I’m losing my mind but sometimes you’ve just got to take a chance and hope for the best.
Now, while I’m proud of myself for maintaining some sort of posting schedule I am going to apologise again for my lack of engagement in terms of blog-hopping and such. I will try my best to do more on that front when I get the chance to.
Anyway, here is a summary of what I got up to in November.

13th November: Gift Guide for the Reader in Your Life
27th November: Best Platonic Friendships

Get organized. I thought this year I would be a lot more organized when it came to the upcoming birthdays/Christmas plans. However, that has not been the case at all, and now I am trying to scramble some sort of plan to get me back on this organizational path. It’s not easy.
I’ve also been re-reading The Winner’s Kiss lately and it is just as stunning and painful this time around. Kestrel and Arin are seriously one of my all-time favorite fictional pairings and after everything, they’ve gone through deserved their happy ending.
My ultimate December plan is to have fun. I love this time of year because it encompasses all things bright and jolly. I embrace the festivities and I don’t really want to spend the last month of 2018 stressed and grumpy. So here’s to ringing in the new year with a smile and a kick-ass attitude.
