Well hello happy people! How are y’all doing today? I’m doing pretty well. I’ve been running around like crazy trying to get a bunch of things done. Did I procrastinate doing these things before I left town? Yes. Am I considering procrastinating them now? Also yes.
Sigh. I’m such an adult.
Anyway, it’s monthly wrap up time. This was a good month for me. Not reading wise, I’ll get into that in a later post, but other than that, good month.
I was busy getting ready for our trip to see the Hubs’ folks. And then there was the actual trip to see them. I learned how to make a quilt top! That was so much fun. I really have a good with Hubs mom. She is such a wonderful person. Speaking of wonderful people, my mom was at Thanksgiving dinner! It was so much fun to be surrounded by both parts of my family and the food was amazing.
But on to the wrap up! I managed to get 22 posts up last month, which seems impressive, but the week month started on a Monday, so that gave us a few extra days of posting.
I didn’t manage to post that much to Instagram. I hoping to make more of a effort this month. I require nice pictures for the monthly wrap up posts!
On to the Wrap Up!
More New Releases- November 2021: November has a lot of new releases. Heck, a book that I bought when it came out (that wasn’t on this list) has sold out pretty much everywhere. It’s pretty crazy how it’s working out right now. Basically, buy those books when they release!

Biggest Book Haul Ever-October 2021: October holds within it that most sacred of days…my birthday. I got a few gift cards, which I used to buy a fair few books. Just a hint, want to make me happy with gifts, buy me gift cards so I can buy books.
TTT-Memorable Things Characters Have Said: A Top Ten Tuesday with my favorite quotes from books! I couldn’t remember who said what, but it was fun remembering the quotes!
WWW Wednesday-November 10th: Another week were I struggled to get through the books on the list. Reading was not my friend this month.
A Turkey Day TBR-November 2021: I had a pretty decent sized TBR this month. The question of whether or not I failed will be answered later.
First Lines Friday-November 12th: This FLF is an anticipated read that I probably won’t get to for a thousand years because that’s just how I roll. It’s sad, I know.

Thanksgiving Book Tag-Part One: I really enjoyed this turkey day tag. T’was a fun, festive post!

WWW Wednesday-November 24th: Well this post ended up being a lie. I wrote it before I left town for Thanksgiving and just…failed at it. Le sigh.

My most read post was All the Books I Read-October 2021, and my most liked post was that same post. It doesn’t always work that way. But sometimes it does.
