Books I’ve Reviewed This Month:

 

Weekly Features:

 

 

Book Events:

  • Check out my recap of Hanya Yanagihara’s book signing event.
  • I didn’t end up going to Amy Ewing’s event, after I finished reading The Jewel. I just didn’t like it as much as I thought I would. More about that though on my review sometime in December.
  • I went to the Peter Lerangis event was being held, though I didn’t attend the signing. That week was so hectic at work so I wasn’t able to prepare. It was more of meeting my reader friends whom I’ve missed so much and hanging out with them even just for a while.

 

Bookstagram:

 

I mean I’m such a mood reader even if it’s on my list, I won’t read it if I don’t feel like it yet, but I’ve crossed about five books from my Fall TBR, so yay me for actually trying to follow it.

Also, ya girl managed to reach 100 followers on this blog! YAAAAAAASSSSS! Y’all are amazing and I love you guys ❤

 

Personal Life Updates:

Makeup News: I subscribed to Saladbox, which is a makeup subscription box. I’m way excited for the stuff I’ll be receiving, I hope it’ll be good!

I also did a Colourpop haul, which was basically me buying 5 lipsticks because where is my self control, right? lol. Speaking of hauls, I ordered more books from BookOutlet cause of their Black Friday sale, though I’ll probably receive those on February (oh the pains of living in a country so far from the US). They’re worth the wait though, since they’re super cheap even with shipping. My first haul from October is arriving in maybe the second week of December and I am so excited to finally get my hands on them.

 

So that’s about it, the highlights of my November. How was your month? Were you able to read all the books on your TBR for the month? Any book hauls? I wanna see!

    The Ring! I have all four books in the series but I’ve yet to start it. Now with that rating, you got me all excited about it. I just might pick it up before the year ends. 🙂

  2. Oooh, I’m glad you enjoyed Ring! I really want to read that one.

    I always go on the Colourpop website and stare longingly 😅 I’m hoping to treat myself to something soon because their lipsticks all look so amazing.
