November Wrap-Up

Hello, lovelies! I decided to do a November Wrap-up because this month was quite a great one, in my opinion. We’ll discuss everything that happened in this month, I decided to add a section about blog posts that I loved to support my favourite bloggers (this idea came from Marie who does it frequently on her blog).

So, let’s get right into this wrap-up and we shall start with the books I’ve read this month.

Things I’m Watching/Have Watched :

 

  1. Alias Grace – I just started watching it and it’s amazing, feminist ftw!
  2. Buzzfeed Unsolved – please can you all watch it? Shane and Ryan are amazing and sooo funny, I’m a huge shaniac (because his jokes get to me every damn times and also his silly movie references that make no sense).
  3. Tulip Fever – It was a meh movie, a bit too much of a soap opera, tbh. But I really love Dane Dehaan and Alicia Vikander and they had lots of chemistry in the movie, it was just too rushed and a bit of a rush.
  4. Vikings – I will watch the first episode soon, but I already know it’s going to be the best thing ever. I’m a huge fan.
  5. Stranger Things – it was perfect (unless you count that awful scene between Max and Eleven).

Songs I’ve been listening to :

  1. Zayn ft. Sia – Dusk till Dawn (this is a cover I especially love)
  2. Ruelle – The Other Side
  3. Blackbear- i needed you
  4. Miia – Dynasty
  5. Daughter – Still
  6. Oh Wonder – Without You
  7. Banks – Weaker Girl
  8. London Grammar – Interlude

    THANKS FOR LINKING MY VERY FANGIRLY POST!! (I didn’t think my absolutley rambly “asdfghjkl” review would be any good BUT HEY I’m infinitely glad that I have someone to fangirl with 😂).
    Buzzfeed Unsolved is the best show I’m watching because I don’t watch TV on the actual TV anymore. It’s thw funniest thing and I love Shane he’s such a meme.
    And how did you even manage to read 13 book WHAT HOW tell me your secrets.
    (Also kinda Happy B-day to our country that’s nice I love staying at home)

      Hahahaha, Ioanaaa, it was kind of hard to decide on what post from yours I wanted to share because your content is awesome! ❤ ❤
      I've watched so few tv shows lately, I don't know what's up with me, but it's probably because I read so much more and I find it so much better to read a book for an entire day than to watch 45 minutes per episode, hahaha!!!
      Hahahaha, I've read 4 poetry books and a comic book, some novellas, so if you count it like that, I haven't read all that much. But thank you very much! ❤ Happy B-day to you too, Ioana!! Hope you enjoyed it! 🙂 Staying home was amazing, even though I had to finish some projects and study. Meh.

    It seems like you had such a great reading month, and you reminded me that, despite having read and loved The Wrath and The Dawn series, I haven’t read the short stories! Did you think they are worth a read, or not? 🙂
    Thank you so, so much for sharing my posts, that’s so, so sweet of you!! I hope you’ll have an amazing month xx

      It was a pretty good month, indeed!! But I can’t wait for the winter break to come, so I have more time to read because college stress me out even if I don’t have projects/assignments. Well, Marie, I’d recommend you read at least The Moth & the Flame because it shows us how Despina and Jalal met. I don’t know about you, but I’m a huge fangirl when it comes to them!!! ❤
      Thank you very much and it's never a problem, your posts are always worth sharing! ❤

        AHHHHH OKAY. Will buy The Moth & The Flame as soon as I can then. I LOVED Despina and Jalal SO much, I’m a HUGE fangirl as well. We need a whole book about them ❤

      I try to schedule my posts as much as I can, also this month was pretty free for me when it comes to college. I probably won’t have as much time in January/February when I have my exams. But eh… Thank you very much!! xx

    Aww, thanks for sharing my diverse reads recommendation post! And you had a great month of reading in November; so did I and my wrap-up will be posted in about a half-hour. I’m hoping I can read a lot of my TBR books for December–I have 14 books planned so we’ll see what happens.

      No problem, it was a really great and useful post, I’m always looking for more diverse books to add to my TBR and to read and I think I’m not the only one. Good luck with your TBR and happy reading! ❤

      The Wrath and The Dawn is sooo good, definitely check it out when you’re in the mood for a bad-ass read, the characters are all so amazing and the romance is A++ without taking the focus from other more important things. No problem, loved your post! ❤

      Yesss, I definitely loved them! I can’t wait for the next issue in Fence, I feel like an eternity will pass until we have the second one. But I’m very interested in those characters so far! I hope the same for you and thanks! ❤

    Whoa! That’s amazing how many books you have read this month! You must have superpowers haha :’)
    I enjoyed The Captive Prince by CS Pacat and I’ve been hearing about her new graphic novel series Fence! Glad that you liked it! I’ll have to look into that one 🙂

    Ah I love the way you set up your monthly wrap-up! I love Buzzfeed Unsolved. I still haven’t seen all of the episodes though so I need to get on that ASAP. I also need to rewatch Stranger Things season one because I don’t remember what happened in the middle and end .___. and then hopefully after that, season 2! Have you seen Mind Hunter yet? I think you would really enjoy it.
