Hello, friends, and happy Halloween! 😀 Are you doing something tonight? Do you celebrate Halloween? Maybe do a Disney Halloween movie marathon? Well, hopefully, that’s what I’ll be doing tonight 😛
But for now, I’m bringing you my October Wrap Up post! Let’s see how I did this month! (spoiler alert: very badly)
WHAT’S GOING ON WITH ME?
I’ve recently found out how hard college can get, and it’s tricky to try to combine sleep, school and social life – I’m mostly sacrificing my sleep, but I’ve been a lot less around here too, which saddens me. This month has been very boring, as I’ve been following a schedule: uni, homework, driving theory lessons, more homework, a lot of school reading, and then sleep. I also attended a birthday dinner, but besides that, the only times I went out was because of praxe (which is a lot like orientation week, but it actually lasts the entire year and we do a lot of activities).
BOOKS I RECEIVED
The French Lieutenant’s Woman, A Room of One’s Own and Small Island were the three books I got during October, and guess what – all of them for my classes! xD
BOOKS I READ
titles lead to reviews
It has been a while since I’ve read less than three books per month 😦
Chimera by C.D. Bell – 4
A bit different from the first book, but as equally entertaining. I actually thought that the plot of this one was more interesting to read about! I would only ask for a bit more of insight, since there’s a huge gap between the first book and its sequel and some things weren’t as properly covered.
The French Lieutenant’s Woman by John Fowles – 3,5
I had to read this one for my Contemporary English Culture class, and it actually surprised me. My only problem with it was the writing style, that bored me a bit, and made finishing this book a complicated task at times. That aside, I really enjoyed it. I was very invested in the story and I wanted to know more about the characters. Sarah was a real mystery!
I might write a review after I finish studying it at uni.
POSTS YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED
WHAT I’VE BEEN WATCHING
Lately, I’ve only been trying to keep up with the tv shows I currently watch. Outlander came back, and I loved the new episodes, they’re incredibly amazing, and filled me with immense joy ❤ The Shannara Chronicles also came back, which made me super happy, but I’m one or two episodes behind already. And I will always love Once Upon a Time ❤
I’m also a couple of seasons behind on The Big Bang Theory, but since the episodes aren’t long at all, I try to watch them while getting ready or when I’m eating 😛
WHAT I’M CURRENTLY READING
I’m still reading Cress, but the good news is, I’m finally about to start to make some progress! 😀
I’ll try to make an extra effort to make November worth it in terms of reading, but I can’t expect much, and so my TBR is as small as I can get it to be. I’d like to finish Cress, of course, and also maybe read Artemis, since we’re getting closer to the release date and I wouldn’t want to miss it, even though that’s what is more likely to happen. Finally, A Room of One’s Own for my Contemporary English Culture class.
What have you read in October? Any expectations for November? 🙂
