The Sunshine Blogger Award

Settle in everyone, as today’s post is a very exciting one – I WAS NOMINATED FOR A BLOGGER AWARD! (Cue: party poppers, streamers, and party rings.) The super lovely Jasmine over at Life of A Simple Reader was kind enough to tag me, and I am honestly over the moon. Thanks, Jasmine ❤ (Side note: you should 100% go and check out her blog – I love her writing style, and her reviews always make me want to check out the books.) To think that my humble blog is worthy of the award is seriously mind blowing!

October Wrap Up and November Reading Goals

Well. It’s safe to say that I majorly failed at updating my blog this month. Whereas last month I had no finished posts and felt guilty, this month I finished said posts… and then didn’t post them (therefore maintaining the guilt). GOOD JOB, ME.

October has been a bit of a weird month – I’ve found myself thinking “it’s been a funny old day…” every day (yes, in full on Open All Hours style, only not whilst dismantling the outside display of a corner shop. Wow, I’ve just thrown a lot of readers…), and has been a mix of intensely busy (work, events, and two weekends away) and low-key anxiety filled days – to the point where I can’t really remember the start of the month, and I’m convinced it didn’t actually occur.

Rambling sentence aside, I’ve read a total of 8 books this month (/half a month, if the conspiracy theories are indeed true), with about a 75% enjoyment rate (yes, I just did some maths to figure that out. See kids, you do use maths as an adult… *cough*), which I count to be a success.
