It’s November. I am hung over from Halloween. Fun was had. As I age, I am learning that despite my hermit tendencies, I do actually like going out sometimes.
My sixteen-year-old self would be scandalised.
Happy November, people. This month I turn 24.
Feelings: A sexy pirate romance that’s perfect for those lonely winter evenings…
No Matter The Wreckage – Sarah Kay
Feelings: This is the book that made me fall in love with poetry.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo – Stieg Larsson
Feelings: I might be coming to it late, but the hype is totally justified.
Crooked Kingdom – Leigh Bardugo
Feelings: Leigh Bardugo has full ownership of my heart until further notice.
The Raven Boys – Maggie Stiefvater
Feelings: Were it not for Crooked Kingdom, this would have been my favourite book from this month. I am actually very excited to progress with the rest of the series.
I also wrote about…
Big Magic: Or, some pre-NaNoWriMo wisdom
Zodiac Book Recommendations (an aside – this post took me forever and was one of the sillier ones I’ve ever written. The reaction to it made me happy. Thank you!)

Good luck with that hangover, and happy early birthday! =)
Had to add No Matter the Wreckage to my to-read list, I didn’t know Sarah Kay had a poetry collection out, I used to spend hours watching her spoken word on youtube.
Ohh happy early birthday, in case I forget later! ❤
Except for the language, I likes The Raven Boys a lot. I really struggled with the 2nd one though because of a specific character.
Sunday Summary #28
Interesting! When I read it I’ll have to let you know if I agree.
What was it about the language that you disliked?
Multiple “F words,” and the character in the second book was offensively & hatefully vulgar.
Oh! I see what you mean. I thought you were talking about the writing itself – like some people describe it as magical realism, and I actually disagree with that definition.
