November Wrap-Up + Blogmas Announcement!

monthly wrapup

Hello!  Let’s just take a moment to stop and internally freak out that November is over, and we are in the last month of 2017! 😳  Y’ALL! HOW DID THAT EVEN HAPPEN?! WASN’T SUMMER JUST LAST MONTH?! *ahem* Now that that’s out of the way, let’s talk about what I read and blogged about in the month of November!  Plus, I have an exciting Blogmas announcement at the end of this wrap-up!

In November, I read a total of 3 books (Or, if you want to count each Regal Hearts episode individually, I read 11 books)!

They were all ebooks though, so, unfortunately, I don’t have a group photo show.


– Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys: The Big Lie by Anthony Del Col \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

– Regal Hearts: Season One by Livy Jarmusch \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

– The Christmas Blessing by Melody Carlson \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️



The Christmas Blessing by Melody Carlson really exceeded my expectations, which is why it’s my Standout Book of the Month!  It was Christmas-y, emotional, and really just a lovely little book.


Spellbook of the Lost and Found  by Moïra Fowley-Doyle \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding by Alexandra Bracken \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys: The Big Lie by Anthony Del Col \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Regal Hearts: Season One by Livy Jarmusch \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


I didn’t buy any books in November.  I can’t believe it, but my TBR thanks me! 😉


November was a fun month for the blog!

top ten tuesday

I participated in Top Ten Tuesday, and I really loved the prompts!


The Regal Hearts Blog Tour made a stop at my blog, and I got to share a review and what I would do if I was in a Disney Movie for a day!  This one was SO much fun to write!


I also participated in the #ThanksgivingReadathon!  This was such a fun readathon that ran from the 22nd through the 26th.


Then, last but not least, my Countdown to Christmas series has returned on my blog and will run through Christmas!

Blogmas 2017

blogmas (1)

Now,  I’m so excited to share with you all that I’ve decided to do Blogmas this December!!  So, what that means is, I’ll be posting on the blog every single day starting December 1st, and going through the 25th (and maybe even the rest of December?! We’ll see 😉 ).  The #blogmas goal is to post something Christmas-y every single day, but honestly, I’m not sure if every single post will be Christmas.  I will [hopefully] be posting at least once a day, everyday, though.

This is my first time attempting to blog every day, and it’s going to be quite a challenge.  That being said, I’m looking forward to it! 🎄😄

That’s my November wrap-up, and an exciting announcement for what’s to come next month!  Let me know how your November went, and if you’re planning on participating in Blogmas, too!
