November 2016 Wrap-Up


So, I did not in fact have a planned TBR for this month and I think that was a VERY good thing. I didn’t read a huge amount of books, but six is a pretty solid number. I am slowly getting back into shape again it seems and that thought makes me happy. So, without further ado, here’s what I’ve read.

A Monster Calls   The Best Possible Answer   Three Dark Crowns   Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1)   The Homecoming   Did I Mention I Miss You? (Did I Mention I Love You #3)

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy … it’s almost December, which means it’s almost Christmas, which means the year is almost over! *screams internally with all the things that still need to be done* The thing is, I quit my job and I will only work until the end of January, but I am not sure how I am going to continue after that. I have a semblance of a plan, but I am nervous and scared. The thing is, I always knew I wouldn’t just stay here in Vienna, yet every time it comes to leaving for a notable amount of time, I get doubts of what to do. I need to make money somehow, which requires work permits and an immense amount of paper work. Then you need to be able to get from A to B, get food, an accommodation – when am I supposed to organise that all? I am really not good at that kind of stuff … but deep breaths! Everything will be okay in the end.

Today also marks the last day of NaNoWriMo … well, I did not do all that great this month. I’ve written 7,500 words, so that’s exactly 7,500 more than I had before November, but it’s not a crazy amount either. I am not exactly disappointed, I just really didn’t have the head for it and am hoping that I can write more in the upcoming weeks. As always, this is my plea for you to read Arcadia on wattpad! Vote for it and comment – I love hearing your thoughts on it! It keeps me motivated! (Click here to get to wattpad)

November was a busy month with the Gilmore Girls revival (still uncertain if I will review it), Vienna Comic Con (me working there and visiting it as well) and an amazing OwlCrate box (unboxing coming for sure!). It all went by really quickly, but not in a bad way entirely. It was a pretty good month altogether, aside from the lack of blogging!



How was your month? Tell me all about it!

  1. I already told you that a couple times, but I hope things will go well for you after December and everything. And your special plans…well I want to know ALL about it. And I can only imagine how bothering these things can be. Being a grown -up in general IS bothering haha, but you can do this, and you’ll find what’s best for you, I am sure of it 😀
    Also, in completely other news, since I’m seeing your monthly TBR, I wanted to tell you that I’ll order – I’ll make my sister order is more likely….- A Million Worlds With You this weekend 😀

    • I will tell you about my plans in a DM message sometime when I have a more solid idea of how I am going to achieve them hahaha I know that it will all work out somehow, but I just can’t see myself settling down just yet.
      Uuuuuh, I’ll post my TBR tomorrow, but A Million Worlds With You can always be added if you get it! I’ll also talk to Cátia about when she is getting it.

  2. Hoooow many times do I have to tell you ?! Stop stressing out and thinking about all of it at once, it just gets overwhelming and stressful! Take it one step at a time, breath in, breath out! Anyway, I know you’ll figure it out and everything will work out for the best ❤
    Here's to many many more buddy-reads !! 😀

    • I just hate planning … stuff and at the moment everything is actually looking REALLY good. I know, sort of, what I want to do and what I have to do to make that happen. It’s just the paper work and excessive need of money that annoys me hahaha


  3. I’m glad you got to check out A Monster Calls and Six of Crows this month. Those two alone would’ve made the month of November complete. 😀 I hope you’ll find solutions to those financial issues. It does definitely suck to feel empty-handed, but I’m sure you’ll find a way to overcome all this as the year of 2017 arrives. Happy reading! 😀

    • Those two were really my favourites of the month, so I am very happy to have read them too!
      I have managed to save quite a lot of money and it will keep me afloat for a while (if I get some sort of control on my book buying habits), but I doubt that I can go a whole year without earning ANYTHING, you know? I’ll figure it out though. I always do.

  4. What a great list of books you read this month! I’m so impressed with your ability to keep up with reviews for the books you read. I struggle with that. Don’t fret with life changes. I know you’ll find happiness and joy wherever you go. You’re an amazing person. 😀

    • I have no idea how I do it. My review are more on the short side though, so that might have something to do with it. I know many people, who make reviewing seem like an art form that I am not privy to hahaha
      Thank you so, so much for your kindness! It’s people like you that make the blogging experience worthwhile.

  5. So happy that you loved Six of Crows! My crew are just so ruthlessly lovable haha.
    Good luck with the next step of your life plan. I’ve been trying to figure things out since graduation and it’s a very slow process. Just take things one step at a time and I’m sure things will fall into place and if you need a place to rant away I’m all ears. 😀

    • Thank you so much, Lois! I really, really do appreciate it. My plans are still a bit too much on the loose end to talk about it, but if I am ever in need of a rant-partner, I know where to find you 😀 Thank you! ❤

  6. If you forget this one-star rating, you had a great reading month! I only managed to read 4 books, and the slump is hiding around, I can feel it!! It gets stronger with every launch of my Sims 4 party and the search for the TV show you recommended.
    You quit your job?? Well, good riddance! I hope your next adventure will have less rude people! *hugs* I wish you all the best for the changes and I’m here for support!

    • I hear you! My slump came back by the end of the month. I am trying not to let it win, but with you having the Sims 4 … that’s a bad sign hahaha you can do it though! And 4 books isn’t bad either!
      I am kind of glad I quit my job, I just felt like I would get stuck there forever and a weight lifted from my shoulders when I made the decision to quit.
