Monthly Wrap Up

November 2020 Monthly Wrap Up

Welcome to December! We’re in the home stretch of this dumpster fire of a year. 

I still want to keep up with the trend of highlighting positive things each month, so here’s my positives for November:

  • I made major progress in reading my ARCs.
  • I got the 50 reviews badge from NetGalley!
  • I completed reading all of my books for the BBNYA.
  • I read more adult books, and a little less YA books during the month.
  • I got approved to start a new medication, so hopefully it’ll help manage my autoimmune condition and allow me to feel better. 🤞🏻
  • I had my very first vegan Thanksgiving, and it was really delicious. I got to make foods that I wouldn’t have normally been able to make at a regular Thanksgiving and the best part was that I got all of the leftovers!

  1. Great wrap up, Leah! Looks like you had a really good reading month with plenty of five star reads 😍 I’ve got a few of your five stars on my TBR so I’m looking forward to them even more! Hope your December is full of fantastic reads again 😊

    • November really was a great reading month. I think you’ll probably love the books as well since we’re book twins, and I demand updates 😂 I’m super excited for December, since I have some really great books lined up!
