Lillian: Happy Sunday y’all! I cannot believe that it is already November. Where did October go? Where has 2018 gone?! Gah…Christmas is around the corner and I haven’t even started shopping ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ I just felt my blood pressure rise a little ๐Ÿ˜‚ Oh well….October was a good month. I added a blogger to the blog, an old friend who I’ve reconnected with on Facebook who also happens to love books and talking about books as much as me. I finally read Tower of Dawn and DIDN’T hate it *high fives* Reading wise I only read four books this month. To my credit two of those books equated to ~1600 pages SOOOOOOO….I feel accomplished ๐Ÿ˜‰

Amanda: Both September AND October have been crazy. But I’m excited to start my favorite time of the year. So far this month I’ve read three books, but two of them have been hugenormous. I haven’t had a lot of time to read – I only finished as much as I have because we were sick this past week. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

This month I not only started blogging with Lillian, but I’ve also started a powerlifting class – all while my husband is working out of town and all five of us are fighting colds constantly. I feel pretty accomplished, considering ๐Ÿ’ช. I’m so excited to get November underway (my birthday month) – I have a lot of goals to wrap up, and some FUN book goals. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ

      Same!! I feel like all of November I’m going to be walking around going, “I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S NOVEMBER,” even though the year progressed as every year before it has. November is always that novelty month where we realize how quickly time is flying.

    • KoA is fantastic. Best end to a series Iโ€™ve ever read. Iโ€™m really hoping that there will be a spin-off series for the southern continent.
      Happy birthday month โ˜บ๏ธ

  1. You got some great books. I am buying and not yet reading all the Thrones of Glass books. I look at all the reviews longingly. Soon.

    I’ll see you at HoHoHoRAT. I’ve read 3 so far but one was an extremely short novella. Anne – Books of My Heart

      AH girl! Make Throne of Glass your 2019 series! You will *not* regret it! I’ve not read enough Christmas books yet – but we’re working on it! ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck!!
