November Updates and October Reflections


That’s my feet (and my view!) while relaxing on a beach in Mexico on our honeymoon!

Hello my lovely readers!

I hope you didn’t mind too much the influx of wedding this month.  It was so hard for me to not talk about it all in the months leading up to it, and I really enjoyed getting to finally talk about it.  I also really hope my insight helps some future brides and/or grooms out!  Thanks so much for your patience in the slow-down on the blog in the last few months and for all of your awesome congrats and support.

The book of the month for November will be:

Deadly Row to Hoe by Cricket McRae
First reviewed in November 2012
“McRae successfully pulls together everything that makes a cozy great.”

How was my reading, reviewing, and writing this month?

October books read: 3 (1 scifi, 1 horror, 1 nonfiction) I was on my honeymoon for half the month, you guys.

October reviews: 4

Other October posts: 1 announcement (MY WEDDING), 2 wedding planning tips posts

Most popular post in October written in October: Announcement: I Am Married!!! Well, I would hope so! 😉 Thanks so much for all the congrats and support, you guys!

My favorite post of October:  It obviously has to be the post where I got to announce my marriage, so we agree this month!  I also really enjoyed writing up my wedding planning tips for everyone. I really hope future wedding planning brides/grooms will find them useful.

Most popular post in October written at any time: Book Review: The Jungle by Upton Sinclair

October writing: When I got back from my honeymoon, I started working on building writing back into my daily routine again.  My goal for November is to finish up two parts of the multi-part miniseries I’m working on.

Coming up in November: I have 4 books to review, plus I plan on participating in Nonfiction November as much as possible.  Also stay tuned for the promised post about my honeymoon!

Happy November and happy reading!

    Congratulations and best wishes on your marriage! Yes, you get a bit of slack for honeymooning instead of writing reviews!

    I’ve still never read The Jungle–someday, when it fits into the right reading project or I’m enthused about learning about that part of American history and life. At least I have a copy–a gorgeous Penguin Classics edition.

      Thank you! We are very excited and happy 🙂

      The Jungle was much more enjoyable than I was anticipating. There’s definitely a real plot there, not just “here’s how slaughterhouse work is awful.” It’s awesome you have a lovely copy! I just picked up a cheap kindle version at some point.
