November Wrap Up

No one wants to here my say yet again that I can't believe another month is over (and that the year is almost over how???) but here we are.

So I was in a bit of reading slump this month, though I know it doesn't look like it. I've found that when I get in a slump, I tend to just read a lot of nonfiction. So, almost all nonfiction this month, with a few children's/MG thrown in.
Notable Favorites: Hidden Figures (reread), From Here to Eternity, The River of Consciousness, Dear Ijeawele

  • Rosemarked by Livia Blackburne
  • Artemis by Andy Weir
  • Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance by Ruth Emmie Lang
  • In Tune Out of Sync by Kate Forest
Movies: I did see Justice League. The only other DC movie I've seen is Wonder Woman, but I still enjoyed it. Let's be honest, I really only watched it for Barry Allen (and Diana of course).
TV: I binged the first season (so far) of Star Trek: Discovery and guys I REALLY LOVE IT. It's so good and I am so happy.
Music: Not a huge fan of Christmas music, but love getting to pull out the Pentatonix Christmas albums every year. (Fav songs: Coventry Carol, Coldest Winter, their rendition of How Great Thou Art with Jennifer Hudson).

October Wrap Up

There is no way October is already over. I just can't wrap my mind around it. But here we go.

After the insane amount I read last month, it feels like I hardly read anything at all this month. Between midterms and feeling crummy for a couple weeks, I didn't read as much as I was hoping. Surprisingly, most of it was nonfiction, which I'm happy about. (I tried to quickly sneak in a few at the end of the month, so it's actually more than I was thinking I had read this month.)
Notable Favorites: Women in Sports, Dare Mighty Things, Hidden Figures: Young Readers Edition, Why Dinosaurs Matter, Anne of Green Gables, The Hobbit

TV: The Good Doctor has been just as amazing as I was hoping. Also Brooklyn Nine-Nine is back and killing it as always. Not really TV, but rereading Anne of Green Gables made me want to rewatch Green Gables Fables and I could just shout about this miniseries forever. IT'S SO CUTE AND LOVELY AND WELL DONE just watch it okay
Movies: For some reason, decided to get into the Jurassic Park franchise this month. I know, I can't believe I've never seen them either. Also had to watch Patch Adams for a class, and actually really liked it.
Other: TeaWithTolkien is the cutest little Etsy shop and has been feeding my Tolkien obsession. Also made DRAGON EGGS from this tutorial from Commas and Ampersands and they were SO CUTE. (I need to post a picture soon)

That's all for this month! Hope you're enjoying what's left of fall weather :)
