Monthly Rewind | November 2017


I'm a little late with this rewind, but I want to be consistent so here goes a few days late! November was a good month, but towards the end of it, I found myself feeling really low. I've noticed that when the weather starts to change, I feel a little sad. My boyfriend is the same way, so for the last week of November I focused a lot on self-care and just getting myself out of sad days. There were a lot of good things this month as well, so let me focus on those. 

5 Good Things in November

1// I went to two shows, one being a favorite band of mine: The Front Bottoms. My boyfriend bought me tickets to both these shows for my birthday (in September) so we'd been anticipating these shows for a little under two months. We had so much fun in the first one, Passafire, which is an all time favorite of my boyfriends. 
2// I read a lot: Normally I finish a few books a month, but in November I got a lot more reading done than usual. I'll share more of that below but it definitely inspired me to read a lot each month (or try to!) because I really enjoyed it :)
3// We started exploring used bookstores: My boyfriend and I have been obsessing over Stephen King for a couple months now and this past month, he sent me a list of the best used bookstores in LA, so we've made it an adventure every Sunday to go to a few. We mostly look for King's books but I have found some other great stuff, too! I'm trying to vlog our trips but haven't edited a final video just yet.
4// Went to Solvang with my parents: It had been a long while since my brother and I took a day trip with our parents, but the weekend after Thanksgiving was a free one for both of us so we went down to Solvang and had breakfast and shopped. It was a good day.
5// I started hiking again! My aunt asked me to go hiking and it was really early, and really tiring, but I was so glad to finally be out and about doing that. 

What I Read in November





Around the Blog

Quick Reviews #8 | My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga // Apple and Rain by Sarah Crossan

Wow, I didn't realize I posted so much this month! I am trying really hard to catch up on reviews so that I can start with a clean slate in the new year, so December will have as many reviews, if not more. 

Next Month

I have another ambitious TBR for December but since I did well in November, I think it's more doable.

Anticipated Releases
Roomies by Christina Lauren | December 5, 2017
The Young Queens by Kendare Blake | December 26, 2017
This month doesn't seem to have as many awesome releases, at least not that I am interested in. I haven't started the Three Dark Crowns series but I have the first book and I am excited to read it, so it seems cool that a prequel is coming out. 
To be honest, the only thing I am really excited coming out this month is the newest Star Wars movie! I cannot wait, and am starting a marathon of all the movies tonight, so that's fun!
