The Second Grand Finale: November 2016 Wrap-up

Time for another monthly wrap-up! November was a rollercoaster of a month. In terms of real-life events, life wasn’t great. First of all, the election. I’m still a little bit in denial about the results, but I did have so many emotions about it that I wrote my longest post ever. (It’s linked below, called Dear America: The 2016 U.S. Election.) School and ballet were also extremely stressful, so not exactly my best month. I did get a lot of reviews and posts done though, so I guess that’s good.

Fun Stuff:

  • I celebrated my six-month blogiversary and bookstagramiversary!
  • November was unfortunately an extremely slow reading month. I only read 6 books, most of them during Thanksgiving break, but I loved all of them! Raving reviews to come soon.
  • If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen that I have decided to post/retweet a panda picture a day. For you know, emergency reasons.
  • I posted my first ever unboxing (of the OwlCrate November box).
