So, this is my first time doing one of these monthly wrap-up thingies, but I thought it might be a good idea, y’know, to keep things organized and such. Or not. I don’t know.
I exclaimed over the deliciousness that is November Cakes, and mourn that I have to share them with the rest of the family.
You agreed with me with the need for more platonic relationships in YA.
And, finally, you looked on eagerly when I spilled my evil secrets in the secrets of a book blogger tag.
Cait @ Paper Fury wants more diverse books that aren’t about being diverse. She also gets a rather lovely new blog design.
Lizzy @ My Little Book Blog points out the importance of used bookstores.
Tina @ Read the Bloody Book gives us a nice handy list of magical schools and universities so we know where to go this school year.
Nirvana @ Quenching the Quill talks about Tumblr and Fanpeople and fandoms in general.
Erika @ Erika in Bookventureland makes a list of things most (or all) bookworms will understand.
The Accident Season by Moïra Fowley-Doyle: I think this book will become one of my favorite books as of ever; I love it so much that every single review I try to write for it comes out wrong feeling because I can’t put my love of it into words. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT.
Armada by Ernest Cline– Not as good as Ready Player One, but still worth a read. It is also my dad’s copy, so he likes to bug me by dog-earing it in front of me. He is quiet evil.
I also found a slightly beat-up copy of Legend by Marie Lu at the “For Sale” shelf in the library and I got it FOR FREE. Is there anything better than free books?
I have started outlining for NaNoWriMo! You can find the story board for it on Pinterest, even though there’s not a lot there. Other than that? Nothing much, sadly.
I continue to attempt myself photography so I can post pretty pictures on Tumblr.
I find that it is extremely easy to fall into ponds in the middle of a sheep/goat/llama pasture in the middle of a party even when you make your cousin step on the log first.
I watch Paper Towns and enjoy it (though why was Angelia on the road trip?)
And so, that was my month. How was yours?
