I cannot believe how fast November came and went. After two months of being out of town in Pennsylvania... I am finally back home in Arizona. It was so nice to be back east for the fall. I loved getting to see the leaves change. The weather is much cooler here in Arizona now than when I left. THANK GOD! It's still not cold enough for my taste but I will take anything cooler than 80 degrees.

This past month I finished six books! I did way better than I thought! My reading habits felt a little off too me this month for some reason. Most of the time I didn't feel like reading.

This year I had three Thanksgiving dinners to go too. Needless to say, I was very stuffed.

Books Read:

Favorite Book:
The How and the Why by Cynthia Hand. This book was beautiful inside and out. It's easily one of my new favorite books. I still cannot stop thinking about it.

Biggest Letdown:
The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton. I DNF this book this month. There were way too many characters to keep track of. Plus, I was so unbelievably bored. This totally bummed me out considering that I had been looking forward to reading this book for a while. I just could not get into it. The plot was super slow. Here is a fine example of hyped books not always being that great.

Book Reviews Written:

December Releases I am Excited For:


Songs Of The Month:

Save Us from Ourselves - Digital Daggers
Lady - Blake Rose
Tv Show:

I am watching the final season of Orange Is The New Black and it's so good. I don't want this show to be over so I am trying not to binge it like crazy. 


On Thanksgiving, I went to the movies with my family to see the new movie A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. Tom Hanks portrayed Mr. Rogers very well. It was a heartwarming movie.

I rewatched the movie The Waitress. I hadn't seen it in a while and with all the pie that I was baking over Thanksgiving... I thought it was fitting to watch. It's such a good movie. Be warned it will make you crave all things pie. 


Lypsyl sent me two complementary products of their chapstick to try and I am obsessed! It's so minty and tingly when you put it on. My chapped lips instantly went away. This is my new go-to lip balm. "Created with pure Swedish beeswax, natural shea butter, coconut oil, and vitamins A and E for long-lasting, deep-penetrating moisture and lip care protection. Lypsyl Intense Protection helps moisturize, soften and protect your lips naturally. The unique one-hand slide allows for quick application. And the oversized application tip ensures this ultra-light formula spreads evenly for better lip coverage."

Well, there you have it! That was the month of November. Nothing too exciting went on but it was still a good month. Now onto Christmas planning. December is always a crazy month of activities within my family. My mom already sent out the itinerary lol. Yes, my family has a holiday itinerary of all the activities that are ensuing. It makes me laugh thinking about it.
