Hi friends! ♡
.
🧁 QotD: Any 2019 debuts you loved this year?!
.
These three were absolutely fantastic! I read an arc of Red, White & Royal Blue and immediately fell in love with this heartfelt, hilarious book. I even reread it a month after finishing it the first time 😂 Alex and Henry are everything!
.
The Binding took me completely by surprise. The story took a very different turn than I was expecting, but that made me enjoy it even more! I wanted to reread it before I had even finished, I loved it so much! I haven’t gotten around to that reread yet, but it’s coming! 😍
.
And then there was The Merciful Crow! I have found YA fantasy pretty hit or miss for me lately, but I loved this one! And did you see the cover reveal for the sequel, The Faithless Hawk?! 😱😍 I need that book ASAP! I need to know what happens to Fie and Tavin, I still have so many questions! I think a TMC reread will be in order before it comes out because I’ve only read it as an arc... There’s a possibility I reread too much 😂

I won NaNoWriMo!
And I read more books than I bought in November, so that’s a plus. Grateful for library audiobooks to help me through!
How was your November reading?
THE WRAP-UP:
#TheToll – Hawke + I just finished The Toll. We’re still blinking the stars out of our eyes.
#TheBurningWhite – I finished the EPIC Lightbringer series with my epic @CreateExploreRead bookstagram bookmark!
#MuseOfNightmares – Sarai + I learned more about the world of Weep and just want to give Minya a great big hug.
#WeHuntTheFlame – Aladdin + I went on an interesting quest with a huntress and an assassin.
#SkyWithoutStars – John Darling + I zipped to the future where we got to see Les Mis in space.
#TheMagiciansNephew – Mr. Pan + I explored the Wood Between the Worlds to the voice of Kenneth Branagh, and Peter may have stayed and become the first Narnia King (and sent the cabby to Neverland in his stead).
#TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe – Lucy + I had tea with Mr. Tumnus and hugged Aslan’s mane and watched spring return to Narnia.
#TheHorseAndHisBoy – Susan + I escaped the political schemes of wicked men and rolled in the grass with Bree and walked through a dark wood with Aslan by our side.
#PrinceCaspian – Peter + I explored the ruins of Cair Paravel and helped Reepicheep & Co. oust the invaders!
#HowlsMovingCastle – Wendy + I discovered all is not what it seems with this Wizard “Howell” and must promptly go visit Wales.
#NewSpring – Ana + I revisited the world of the Wheel of Time and enjoyed watching little Moiraine and Siuan figure out this Lan guy.
#NinthHouse – I took myself to the occult world of Yale via my library audiobook, and it was what I expected it to be with a dash of meh.

Quick post with my November wrap up. Can't believe it is December! I have been extremely busy the last few weeks with work and appointments with my husband.
📚
This is one of my favorite seasonal candles from @bathandbodyworks. I love the Pumpkin Pecan Waffles! It is so warm and comforting, makes me feel cozy and hungry. What is your favorite seasonal scent?

Z is for... Zombies
#ampersandnov19 🧟‍♂️🧟‍♀️
I know I know.
November and this challenge are both over but I’m not done with it.
I’ve enjoyed posting these.
Today’s post is all about zombies.
Love me a good zombie story.
Something Strange and Deadly and Rot & Ruin are also great zombie reads.
Do you have a favorite?

This is my haul and wrap up post since I've been slacking lately on here. Work and holidays kicked my butt. This month I reread vampire academy, outlander and house of night (ebooks). 》
》
My husband has been reading through percy for the first time on 4th book. My brother is now starting on apollo so exicted to enjoy with relatives. I cant wait to share these with my kids as well. Rick is so talented. 》
》
Also finally bought the newest Magnus chase and Cassandra clare this month. Which is crazy these authors might be my most owned. I didnt do as well on nano as I hoped but I'll keep going. Reading goal for the year already met though haha. 》
》
great challenges this month dont forget to go check out the dec challenge and my highlights

My favourite read of the month was Words of Radiance. Epic is too inadequate a word to describe this series. I would die for it even though it gets me into month long book hangovers/slumps. And Kaladin aaaah ASDKFJK *Calm down, idiot. They don’t need to know your level of obsession with this series or with Kaladin*.
•
(pretends like she didn’t just have a meltdown)
Anyway, for my usual question. How was your reading this month? If you could recommend ONE book from the books you read, which one would it be?
Apart from the obvious one that is Words of Radiance, I would totally recommend the Foundryside. Such a diverse read with an unique magic system!

Greetings fellow bookmonsters 😈
▫
✏how was your November? ▫
Helloooo it sure has been a while since I last posted anything on ig. It was a nice change. Staying away from social media I mean. I spent the last few weeks reading webtoons, manhwa, web novels and lots of isekai manga seeing that my pc was bust. I didn't know there were so many but I am still obsessed with them so I am just enjoying the ride. I read more in November than I did in the whole year 😅Some of my favourite titles are Lucia, Beatrice, Empress from another World, The Monster Duchess and the Contract Princess, Inso's Law, La Dolce Vita Di Adelaide, Miss Not-So Sidekick, Daughter of the Emperor, Who Made Me a Princess, A stepmother's Märchen, As You Wish Prince, Cheating Men Must Die, Empress of Another World,Survicing as The Hero's Wife and Queen with the Scalpel among others. 😊 and I am currently in the middle of reading The archemage"s Daughter and The Male Lead's Villainess Fiancee until the other ones are updated 😉 all in all it was a pretty ok month.

My reading is always a little lower in November, while I’m writing frantically to finish @nanowrimo. Still, I finished 15 books, 7 of which were rereads, including some read for the #triwizardathon First and Second Tasks. 📖⁣
⁣
I adored The Eye, Ninth House, and The Things She’s Seen. I was really on board for 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle and wanted so much to like it more than I ended up doing, frustrated as I was by the ending. And I was disappointed, but never terribly so, by a couple others. ⁣
⁣
And, as always, Agatha Christie is my go-to comfort reread...🕵🏻⁣
⁣
I’m looking forward to spending December mostly curled up under blankets with tea and books! (Hopefully!)⁣

I did it. I wrote fifty thousand words this month. And managed to read a few books too. 😄 My reward? I bought myself a book that I didn’t think I would get until Christmas (that being Blood and Bond by Laura VanArendonk Baugh).
.
Who else powered through NaNo and is more than a little relieved for December? 😂
.
Here are the books I read this month:
⛅ Airborn, by Kenneth Oppel - airships, pirates, and cloud cats
🎨 The War of Art, by Steven Pressfield - keep doing the creative stuff you love, even when it’s hard
🎃 The Blood Spell, by CJ Redwine - Cinderella with alchemy, sass, and sign language
👻 My Plain Jane, by Hand/Ashton/Meadows - Jane Eyre with ghosts, humor, and healthier relationships
🐚 Coral, by Sara Ella - mermaids, mental health, and hope
⛪ The Solution of Choice, by Warner/Wilder - why truth, choice, power, and tolerance aren’t enough, and what we should focus on instead

Wow, it’s the end of November already. Only one month left in 2019...⁣
⁣
What did you read (and love) this month?⁣
⁣
I finished 69 books, including this new release from @nataliewalters_writer. It was a pleasure to revisit Walton, Georgia (after getting to know the town in #LivingLies) with journalist Vivian DeMarco and Deputy Ryan Frost. They have complicated pasts to accompany the complicated mystery they work to solve, but sweet romance and superhero love add plenty of fun amidst the suspense. #DeadlyDeceit is definitely worth recommending.⁣

📚 Wrap-up 📚
Here’s my little stack that I read this month. Not as many as I had hoped to get to, but I loved each one. Here’s what I read:
-
Elephants Can Remember, by Agatha Christie | 5⭐️ | This one was for the #maidensofmurder readalong. I’m telling you guys, I haven’t met a Christie novel that I didn’t like.
-
A Pocket Full of Rye, by Agatha Christie | 5⭐️ | This one was for the #ayearwithmissmarple readalong.
-
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, by JK Rowling | 5⭐️ | This one was for the #patronusbookclub readalong and was, of course, a reread.
-
Anne of Windy Poplars, by LM Montgomery | 4⭐️ | This is the fourth book in the Anne of Green Gables series, which I’m reading for the first time, after all these years.
-
I was supposed to read Chronicles of Avonlea for the #lmmreadalong2019 but I wasn’t sure if there would be spoilers since I haven’t finished the Anne series yet. So I’m going to save it for another day.
-
There were two other Christie novels for this month, The Mirror Crack’d From Side to Side for the #ayearwithchristie2019 readalong, and And Then There Were None for the #readchristie2019 readalong, but I’ve already them.
-
I also was planning to read A Map of Days by Ransom Riggs, but I just ran out of time. I’m not sure why though, as I’ve been managing to read seven books per month these last few months. Oh well. 🤷🏻‍♀️
-
How about you? What kind of reading month did you have in November?

Are you a fan of virtual reality games? I don’t play them, but I love reading about them and this one sounds thrilling. Thank you to @stmartinspress for the free book!
•
Candle by @acourtofcandles Use my code: xenatine10 to save.
•
SYNOPSIS
You are invited!
.
Come inside and play with G.O.D.
.
Bring your friends!
.
It’s fun!
.
But remember the rules. Win and ALL YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE. Lose, you die!
.
With those words, Charlie and his friends enter the G.O.D. Game, a video game run by underground hackers and controlled by a mysterious AI that believes it’s God. Through their phone-screens and high-tech glasses, the teens’ realities blur with a virtual world of creeping vines, smoldering torches, runes, glyphs, gods, and mythical creatures. When they accomplish a mission, the game rewards them with expensive tech, revenge on high-school tormentors, and cash flowing from ATMs. Slaying a hydra and drawing a bloody pentagram as payment to a Greek god seem harmless at first. Fun even.
.
But then the threatening messages start. Worship me. Obey me. Complete a mission, however cruel, or the game reveals their secrets and crushes their dreams. Tasks that seemed harmless at first take on deadly consequences. Mysterious packages show up at their homes. Shadowy figures start following them, appearing around corners, attacking them in parking garages. Who else is playing this game, and how far will they go to win?
.
And what of the game’s first promise: win, win big, lose, you die? Dying in a virtual world doesn’t really mean death in real life—does it?
.
As Charlie and his friends try to find a way out of the game, they realize they’ve been manipulated into a bigger web they can’t escape: an AI that learned its cruelty from watching us.
.
God is always watching, and He says when the game is done.

“Maybe, someday, some other kid is going to be standing here, staring out at the trees, feeling alone, wondering if maybe the world might look different from all the way up there. Better. Maybe he’ll start climbing, one branch at a time, and he’ll keep going, even when it seems like he can’t find another foothold. Even when it feels hopeless. Like everything is telling him to let go. Maybe this time he won’t let go. This time he’ll hold on. He’ll keep going.” - Val Emmich, Dear Evan Hansen

Welp, I called it early - 4 books was way too ambitious for me for November. It’s always so crazy! There’s 4 birthdays that we celebrate in this month, and along with Thanksgiving, and Christmas shopping, and decorating the house, and
Netflix binging (okay, that one was probably avoidable), time just got away from me. But, the two books I did manage to read were really great! Both 5 stars!!!! .

It was a very fine November day, and the Miss Musgroves came through the little grounds, and stopped for no other purpose than to say, that they were going to take a long walk.
.
Her pleasure in the walk must arise from the exercise and the day, from the view of the last smiles of the year upon the tawny leaves and withered hedges, and from repeating to herself some few of the thousand poetical descriptions extant of autumn, that season of peculiar and inexhaustible influence on the mind of taste and tenderness. .
.
.
And with that lovely fall-themed Austen quote, we wrap up November. It already feels like winter, with the snow outside, at least where I live. And finally, does anyone know or care to guess which book the quote is taken from?

Day 30 of the November Alphabet Challenge! I'm wrapping up!

I haven't read that much this month with work and life getting in the way (hard to avoid living it). However, I am making my way through @kendareblake 's 3DC series and enjoying "Five Dark Fates" tremendously. I'll have a book review up on my blog, fondofonts.blogspot.com, when I finish the series and give my take on how the reading went. Had such a great time doing this November challenge and looking forward to starting the December challenge tomorrow!

Yep. The typical end-of-the-month question: How many books did you read this month? •
•
I know many of you participated in NaNoWriMo and may not have read as many books as you usually do. I am not a writer, but all the excitement and challenge of it is intriguing!! I wish I was a writer! ☺️
•
•
So, I know four books isn’t great. And I know that these are fairly easy reads. But this is pretty good for me! Especially since I completed, like, negative books last month. 😆 So. I’ll take it. (And technically I’m not quite done with Fawkes and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, but I will be done by the time I fall asleep tonight. I’m THAT close. •
•
So regardless of how many books you read or how many words you wrote - onward on to December!! 🎉❤️

📚 NOVEMBER WRAP UP 📚 .
That quote sort of sums up how this month has felt - it’s been a complete rollercoaster. The high of having my first book published 😍 to the humdrum low that shorter days and colder nights bring. Being insta blocked for ages. Being ridiculously busy. It’s been a hard and life changing and amazing and terrible month all at the same time.
.
But - I’m published 😎 definitely counts for something!!
.
.
I think I read about twenty books this month but I’ve got lax about putting them in GoodReads 🙈
.
.
Here are my #fnwreadchallenge books for @foxandwit .
.
🍁 book with leaves on the cover: The Land of Neverendings by Kate Saunders... bit of a let down .
.
👁book with a deity figure as a character: Everyman .
.
🐍 book with a snake on the cover: Ninth house reread lol - I loved it! .
.
🌲book set in a place you want to visit: Lolly Willowes - a really underrated book with stunning prose .
.
🍂book published in November: Call Down the Hawk - LOVED IT; and my book ☺️ hehe .
.
🐉 book with a mythological creature: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone reread!
.
.
Other highlights include: awesome poetry anthology ‘Yellow’ including work by our very own @amylittleford.author;
Stalking Jack the Ripper gifted to me by @howler_nom ;
reread of The Hunger Games - even better than I remembered 😱; buddy reads of Defy the Stars and This Splintered Silence;
Sir Gawain and the Green Knight @simonarmitage_official translation and the original Middle English.
Ooh and finally read Fawkes by @nadinebrandes - loved it 🥰
.
A very varied month!
.
.
Okay, ⁉️QOTD What do you like seeing in people’s feeds? Reviews? Life talk? And what are your favourite type of photos?
.
I’m feeling a bit lost for inspiration - mainly because outdoor photos are so hard. I’ve just reached 3000 followers 😱 as well so watch out for a giveaway coming 😉
.
.
.
Gimme your favourite animal emoji if you made it this far and I’ll give you a shout out 😉
