Monthly Wrap-Up | November Was A Great Month

Let’s see what I did with my life and bookish life in November

November was so much better than October, both in reading and in my personal life. I finished my exams and I handed in my mini thesis, so I’m done with my degree! I still have to go fetch my marks on the 7th and the graduation ceremony is only in February, but I’m actually done!

I had loads of time for reading this month as I had some days off during my exams and after I finished them. This month I managed to read 10 books which I’m so excited about. Let’s see what I managed to read

80-ratio

Yay! I eventually received my 80% badge on Netgalley. I actually didn’t request any books until I earned it and I’m so proud that I could stick it out.

I celebrated 500 followers with a Q&A and a giveaway, which was so awesome! Everyone asked me such great questions and I had so much fun answering all the questions. What’s even more amazing is that I have now reached 600 followers! I have no words guys! I just want to thank everyone for your support and continuously inspiring me!

I’m participating in my first ReadAThon this December and I’m really excited, I hope that it all goes well. I’m going to try and blog loads in December and also try and read loads! I’m so excited it’s December and I can’t wait for all the Christmas decorations, lights and cookies 🎄

Did you have a good November? What was your favourite read of the month?  Have you read any of the books I’ve hauled? Which one should I read first? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I Am Malala was one of the most interesting memoirs I read this year. Her unwavering activism regarding girls’ education in the middle east, despite everything she went through, is inspiring.

  2. Congratulations on finishing your degree!! This year should have been my last too, well I’m planning for a Master’s degree too but that’s another story 🙂
    10 books read is great! I managed to fit 4 in November, I’m a bit disappointed but I have big plans for December 🙂 I was disappointed by Three Dark Crowns so I’d advise you to go in with low expectations or to wait for the next book to be published! 🙂 The Dream Thieves was not my favorite either, I’m not a Ronan fan.
    Congrats on getting your 80% badge! I’ve been staying away from NetGalley to resist requesting, which worked until The Gift by Louise Jensen was added there, hahaha. But I’ve been a good girl and I’ve prepared some reviews that should lift my percentage a bit.
    I wish you a wonderful December!

    1. Thank you, Donna 🌸 I hope you have a lovely December too 🎄 I only did an undergraduate degree, but thanks so much 😊 I’ve read all the disappointing reviews on Three Dark Crowns, but it was sent for review so I’ll give it a fair shot 🙈 Oh no, I love Ronan so then I’ll definitely love The Dream Thieves – now I’m super excited! It’s so hard to restrain yourself from requesting books, especially when there’s tons of good ones! Hopefully you’ll earn your badge soon 😊🌸
