So this year was a big discovery year for me. I have always read a lot but this year I have been able to read much more and go to bookish events. So I discovered some amazing authors that many of you have probably been following for a while now. I'm just happy to have found them and to enjoy their writings!

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. See rules here: Sunday Post Meme.
So sorry you guys didn't hear from me last week. I ran out of my ADD meds and kept forgetting to pick them up from the pharmacy. It has been an interesting week. I have only been on this medication for less than a year and this is the first time I have been off of since then. This was proof that it is working.

It’s that wonderful time of year, when real life is constantly intruding on reading time! I mean what do all these people want with me?! And why can’t I say no to all these social things, as I have been doing for the rest of year!

National Novel Writers Month Has come to an end. I know that I did not post anything about it along the way. I was trying to not to get stuck on how much I was or wasn’t writing because, for me, that just makes it harder to just sit down any write.
I didn’t “win” the challenge. I honestly haven’t even typed most of what I wrote; I just found it much easier to write with pen and paper than to try to type and think at the same time.
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This is a meme where bloggers share their top ten of that weeks topic!
- The One (Selection Series #3) - Kiera Cass
- Into the Still Blue (Under the Never Sky #3) - Veronica Rossi
- Independent Study (The Testing #2) - Joelle Chardonneau
- Panic - Lauren Oliver
- Ignite Me (Shatter Me #2)- Taherah Mafi
- City of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments #6) - Cassandra Clare
- Ruin & Rising (The Grisha #3) - Leigh Bardugo
- Burn (Pure #3) - Julianna Baggot
- Mortal Heart (His Fair Assassin #3) - R.L. LaFevers (n0 cover)
- Redeemed (House of Night #12) - P.C. Cast
And I could keep going lol! It's gonna be a good year :)
The #COYER Challenge is over as of November 30th. I didn't read even close to what I wanted to read AND I missed the Twitter party because I was doing family stuff. It was a rough month with sickness making it's rounds, new puppies, birthdays/anniversaries and a holiday. Next year I will know better than to try to do so much in November (hehe).
So here are the three whole books I was able to finish:
Anathema (I'm sliding this one in because I finished it over the weekend)
They have already posted the winners of the swags packs and other goodies and we should be hearing about the next challenge round this weekend. I will do much better next time I just know it!!
CONGRATS! To all those who won!! And to all those who reached their reading goals for the challenge! Woot!!
