November Wrap-Up \\ NaNoWriMo, HeyAtlasCreative and Grace and Fury

Hello!

I haven’t done one of these in a while, but I kind of wanted to get back into it. especially seeing how cool everyone else’s looks

Plus some pretty cool things happened in November, so maybe this’ll be fun?


Reading

The Scarlet Pimpernel (audiobook) – ✯✯✯✯✯

Looking back on it, I didn’t love how the main female character was written, but I loved everything else about it.  The audiobook was worth it.

The Waking Forest (dnf-ed, so no rating)

The idea was good but the characters weren’t likable and some of the descriptions were completely ridiculous.

Grace and Fury (hardcover) – ✯✯✯ 

Grace and Fury (Grace and Fury, #1)

I honestly wasn’t expecting to love this book and my feelings were…mixed. Mostly positive, especially at the end, but mixed. My spoiler-free review is here.

I’m currently listening\reading Becoming by Michelle Obama and Archenemies by Marissa Meyer.


Writing

I did do NaNoWriMo, but I didn’t technically finish.

I got to around 23,000 words, which is better than usually but not perfect. I do want to finish before the end of the year though, because I really love the project that I have. I do have a bunch of writing posts up if you need help\ want to know about my current WIP.

I am still writing it, and hoping to finish it soon. I post aesthetics and snippets on my Instagram if you’re interested.

also I said i’d do a nano update every week and i did it twice


General Events

The main thing that happened this month was that I became a Hey Atlas Creative rep!

I’m so excited about this, mostly because I love Cade’s site and products but also because I feel like this means my photography\editing is getting better? I’ve entered so many rep searches since I’ve joined Bookstagram and this is the first time I got picked!

If you want to see their stuff you can visit their website (and use RAVEN10 for a discount 😳).


What did you do in November? What was your favorite book that you read?
