I am SO GLAD November is over.
In case you hadn’t guessed based on the lack of blog activity (okay, I say lack, but there were still 25 posts… It felt like I wasn’t doing much, okay?!) I’ve been supremely busy, and I haven’t had time to do any of the things I really wanted to do – like reading – because of being busy at work and trying to write NaNoWriMo which, thankfully, I managed to finish on the last day of the month.
After participating in both Blogtober and NaNoWriMo, I’m looking forward to having a bit more of a relaxed month in December, but things will be back to normally around here – hopefully – when 2017 begins.
In November I read 11 books, 5 of which were graphic novels and 2 that were non-fiction titles. Compared to last month’s total of 29 I’m a little disappointed by that. I’m hoping to read both ‘Pride and Prejudice’ and ‘Emma’ in December to catch up and complete the #2016ClassicsChallenge, but I’m extremely far behind on my personal series challenge, so have no possible way of catching up with that.
The best book I read this month?

After being to over ten shows this month, choosing a concert of the month has been the hardest thing in the world, but I think that accolade also needs to be awarded to Highly Suspect, for their headline show at The Dome in Tufnell Park. Getting to hear their new music in a live environment gave it a completely different feeling, and it was amazing to see them in a 500 capacity venue – such a contrast to when I discovered them at their Reading festival debut.
I hope you had a great November and you have a wonderful December – I’m so excited for Christmas to get here!
