Last month’s deets on I Heart Romance & YA

ihrya-october-2016-wrap-up

Hello, again Wormies and welcome to the new month! I should be happy since November means that we are closer to the holidays – and of course, FOOD – but I had a rough last few days.

There was a hacking attempt on my blog in the last few days of October and it took a while to fix! Sigh* I’m not an expert or anything, but I was able to find it and fix it and double protect my blog just in case. But I know I shouldn’t relax.

I was also not in a very creative mood for Halloween and ended up recycling my costume for last year. I did change the dress, though. But still! I was also able to convince Pierre to dress up. Sort of. So he went as Bane. Ish. And Tywlah also got in on the action!

Sadly, we weren’t able to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter this month. I just realized that Halloween Horror Nights were happening and I just did not want to deal with the crowd. Is it obvious that I hate PEOPLE? Sigh* NEXT MONTH is the Holidays, though so I don’t think that would be idea either.

I FINALLY achieved my reading goal this year! YESH! I am actually 8 book past my goal and I still have a lot of books that I can’t wait to read! I wonder if I could reach 100 by the end of this year.

So. I DID get to see Leigh Bardugo and Dante Di Martino! I HAD to tell him that I am a Zutara fan and wished they went that route.

I have yet to take a photo of the signed Crooked Kingdom and  Rebel Genius books! But I will soon!

OMG, YOU GUYS THE WALKING DEAD IS BACK AND THE FIRST EPISODE KILLED ME! I honestly don’t want to talk about this right now. NO!

Also, Dr. Strange, Moana, and Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them! This should be fun!

Okay, maybe not so random thoughts…. but I joined this little thing called Nanowrimo. Not sure how this will go. But I am doing this!

How was your month? Are you as excited as me with the upcoming movies?

What do you think about authors/creators/shows that kill off favorite main characters?

(*cough* THEY SUCK *cough*)

    That first episode of TWD killed a lot of us.

    Congrats on completing your goal on GR. I am almost done with mine. Last month flew by for me. I wanted to take my kids to a pumpkin patch, but nothing went as planned so no pumpkin patch for them! I was able to catch up on my GR goals, so I guess that’s a good thing.

  2. oh I can’t wait to see Doctor Strange! And I’m really excited for Moana too, but I haven’t been seeing much hype around it? Not like there was for Frozen which is weird, BUT AH WELL I CAN’T WAIT ANYWAY! And ooh, good luck with NaNo! I hope you have fun with it. 😀 AND CONGRATS ON YOUR READING! I loved Crooked Kingdom…so in love with that duology it’s a bit ridiculous. *hugs it* 😂
