November 2013 Recap


November was a bit of a weird month for me blog wise, I had a huge slump at the beginning of the month so posted a lot less than usual but I seem to be slowly getting back into the swing of things now. I may not have been blogging but I didn't stop reading so I'm now incredibly behind when it comes to reviews. I'm working on catching up but I have soooo many to write that it's a little ridiculous!

    My top YA reads in November:


    This month I discovered Susan Ee's Penryn and the End of Days series and I'm kicking myself for not starting it sooner. Both of these books are absolutely amazing (and in my top 10 books of the year!) so if you haven't started reading them yet I can't recommend them highly enough

    1. You have been very busy. I hate feeling pressured so I have slowed down and take less reviews while I am busy elsewhere in life. My November was poor with one review and two books read.

      1. Hi Jane, I think sometimes we have to give ourselves permission to slow down and not worry so much. I don't know about you but I end up putting a huge amount of pressure on myself when it comes to blogging & the only one who has such high expectations about things is ME! Most people don't care if I miss a few days of posts or don't have time for many reviews for a while :o)
