I haven’t updated in two months, yikes! I didn’t mean to go that long without posting to my blog. Life happened, I wasn’t reading much, my October TBR was a fail….so it just kind of made me not even want to blog. My mind has also just been in this weird place for months. It keeps me from wanting to read much, because I’m constantly just always thinking about things going on with me and can’t focus on reading. Just feel kind of stuck within myself, I guess. So with all that, I took an unplanned hiatus, I guess. I’m not really sure how much I’ll be updating this month either, honestly. I am hoping to start over fresh next year and hopefully I’ll start updating my blog consistently. *fingers crossed*
BUT I am updating today, so that’s cool! 🙂 I’m going to share my October and November wrap up. I decided to combined them since I didn’t really read a whole lot during those months. I also plan to post my October and November book haul (also combining them into one post) later this week or Monday. As always, you can find a full list of the books that I read during these months and the other books I read throughout the year over here. All will be linked to Goodreads below and I will also link to individual blog posts for them if I did a review. Here are the books that I read and listened to in October and November.
October Wrap Up
Hide and Seeker by Daka Hermon – 4 out of 5 stars
Wytches by Scott Snyder – 2 out of 5 stars
I had a TBR list of all the spooky books that I wanted to read in October, but I sadly only read two of the ten books that I had listed. I was really bummed out that I didn’t read more than that. I started a third, but I never got the chance to finish it. Hide and Seeker was so much fun to read and I really liked it. I am so happy I finally had the chance to read it. It definitely had its spooky moments. I was really excited about reading Wytches, but it was a huge let down for me. I honestly felt lost the entire time. The only thing I liked about it was the illustrations.
November Wrap Up
Thirteens by Kate Alice Marshall – 4 out of 5 stars
To Sir, with Love by Lauren Layne (audiobook) – 5 out of 5 stars
My [Secret] YouTube Life by Charlotte Seager – 2 out of 5 stars
Thirteens was the third book that I started in October, but didn’t have the chance to finish it. I finally did in November and I really enjoyed reading it. I’ll have to pick up the sequel sometime. I LOVED To Sir, with Love so much. I listened to the audiobook and it was great. I highly recommend! I was really disappointed with My [Secret] YouTube Life. I felt bored most of the time and I didn’t really love the characters. It was interesting getting a glimpse into the “influencer” lifestyle though.
I am currently reading All I Want For Christmas by Wendy Loggia. I want to try to read some Christmas books this month. Not setting that in stone (or a blog post :P) in case I don’t actually do that. We shall see!
I’m going to spend some time this week catching up with your posts. I can’t wait to see what you have been writing about and finding new book recommendations for my endless TBR. Feel free to link me to any posts you think I should check out ASAP. 🙂
I hope you have a great day!

I’m so happy you enjoyed LL’s book. That was a fun one!
Thanks! I’m glad you enjoyed LL’s book too!
I’m so glad you enjoyed Hide and Seeker. It’s definitely one of the creepiest middle grade books I’ve read. Daka Hermon has another MG coming out next year that is pitched as a mashup between Nightmare on Elm Street and Monster Squad. I cannot wait. I hope if we don’t see you too much this month that you are able to come back next year refreshed.
I hope things get better! 🙂
Thank you ❤
Sorry to hear that you were in a weird place, I hope December is a better month for you! I also read Thirteens, glad to see that we both liked it 😊

Ashley! It’s so good to hear from you on here. I hope that December has been treating you kindly so far and I’m sending you all the love! ❤ I was so curious about My Secret Booktube Life, I love stories with influencers, but… it seems like this one missed the mark, that's too bad!
I hope you'll have a lovely month, take care always ❤
