Monthly Wrap Up: October

Did everyone have a lovely Halloween?! I’m sure there were some classy literary costumes involved! AND IT’S NANOWRIMO! That snuck up on me…

Books I Read & Reviews:

I also almost finished reading A Torch Against the Night as well, but my library is being dumb and won’t grant me access to the ebook again! Ugh. Five books would’ve been great.

I completed my reading challenge two months ahead of time! *pats back* Hopefully I can keep the pace up with NaNo going on…

Tags/Awards:

#SFATW: A Food Guide from Canada

I was a little sparse on the tags this month… *avoids eye contact* In my defence, it’s such a toss up whether you’re actually notified when you’re tagged in something! So I’ll be catching up on tags/awards next month.

November TBR:

I finished two of the books from my September TBR, and two others are now sitting on my shelves, so I’m on track! (kind of) I impulse read Fangirl, which I loved, and got me in the right mood to be writing for NaNo! I also definitely also want to finish A Torch Against the Night, if my library ever sorts itself out. *sigh* So I’m not going to set a big TBR goal for this month, because I know I’ll likely be spending more time writing than reading.

I also updated my Fall Bookish Bingo (only one more month to finish it!)

The addition of Fangirl covered the ‘college’ square perfectly.

It’s not quite as cold here as it clearly was at Hogwarts:

Oh, Emily Dickinson. Me, too.

I'm Emma Kath. Welcome to my blog! This is where I post my original book reviews, litstyle (lifestyle for the lit-nerd), and other bookish things. A little about me: I'm Canadian, and currently a student majoring in English lit and cultural studies. I'm an introvert (INFJ, if you believe in that sort of thing), sarcastic to the bone, I love art and history, and hope to one day travel around a bit. Until then, I'll be reading, writing, and trying to spread a little kindness around the internet. If you have any questions or inquiries, feel free to contact me!
