Nov 1 - 14 Re-Cap
Can you believe we’re half-way through November!? This year has flown by! I hope everyone had a fantastic week! Don’t you just love it when loads of little things crop up to distract you from your plans? And then these seemingly little tasks end up taking hours instead of minutes… Le sigh! Yep, always the way isn’t it! This month I was focused on Blog Ahead, and I made great progress the first week, but this week didn’t really go as planned… I didn’t get nearly as much time as I was expecting to write blog posts. It happens, but my goodness it can be so frustrating! Then, to add to my wonderfully un-productive week, we’ve had a storm system hovering over us for the past couple of days and the internet decided to go on the blink! It’s only at times like these do you realise how dependent (and addicted!) you are on it!

A Few Little Changes
Books I Read
I’ve read a few books that I absolutely loved recently! One of my favourites was Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas. I was told after I had finished Throne of Glass that CoM would be even better - and yes, it really IS so much better! I’ve continued on with Heir of Fire already, and even though it’s a much slower paced book, I’m really enjoying it so far. Unhinged is still haunting me though. I love finding books that stay with me long after I’ve finished reading, and I've become a little obsessed with the Splintered trilogy! January can't come quick enjough - I NEED Ensnared!!
I completed the Unearthly trilogy this month, and it’s always a bittersweet moment when a series or trilogy ends. I really enjoyed Boundless, and while I had one or two little issues, I thought it was a great ending to the series. Over Halloween I read a couple of contemporary books (yeah… I don’t know how my moods work either!) I liked Anna and the French Kiss… but it didn’t blow me away as much as I was expecting. I think I went in with WAY to high expectations. I’ll continue with the next two books, but I'll keep any and all thoughts about them in check this time!
eBooks I Bought
Only one book this week, and after all the books I bought last month I need a week or two with a smaller haul! I am little obsessed with Norse Mythology… so this should be perfect! I’d love to read it straight away, but realistically it’ll be a while until I get around to it. That’s the trouble with ebooks… I tend to overlook them in favour of the physical books I have stacked around the house!
