Hello, Contemporary Romance! November 2017 Monthly Wraps

Posted December 2, 2017 by Zeee in Monthly Wraps16 Comments


Last month’s deets on I Heart Romance & YA

Happy NEW MONTH everyone! It’s December and it’s ALMOST Christmas! I am especially happy for the holidays because I get to DIY Christmas gifts and Pierre is going to be home! This means, FOOOOD! Also, I can finally see Coco and Star Wars: The Last Jedi! I will be waiting for Pierre so we can see both movies together (I know Star Wars is not out yet).

Anyway, November was unusual for me because I gobbled up A LOT of contemporary romances! To be honest, I didn’t enjoy the historicals that I got and I kept hopping from one book to another. Let’s just say that it was an amazing contemporary binge read/listen during Thanksgiving weekend.

I also finished decorating for Christmas! I mean, yeah I put up the tree already, but I still need to get Christmas stockings for the fireplace mantle. I also need to decorate our front porch and I have been dragging my feet for about a couple of weeks now. 🙁

I have met 3 out of 4 of my challenges! I am SUPER STOKED about this! I know I have been horrible at reading Fantasy books but I think this isn’t the year of fantasy reading for me.

This will be something that I can think on when selecting the challenges I will be participating in next year.

I finally watched The Big Sick and it was AMAZING! It was funny in all the right places and I also loved how the mixed relationship and family was handled here. It helped that Kumail and Emily co-wrote the script. If you haven’t seen it, you should!

Justice League was a disappointment, actually. The plot was just meh for me AND that freaking photoshopped out Henry Cavill mustache was VERY distracting.

I also re-watched Zootopia and it’s still fun!

Now, I NEED to watch Stranger Things 2 soon!

 

How did your November go? Did you binge read during Thanksgiving weekend?

Did you start decorating for Christmas?

    Your tree is so gorgeous! Mine resembles a scrapbook more than a thing of beauty. Congrats on 3 out of 4 challenges! Merry Christmas!

  2. I saw CoCo Friday night and it was so beautiful. The artwork is truly amazing. But I cried, and once I started it just wouldn’t stop. And then The Man made fun of me ALL the way home about it. Which lead to more crying. *sigh* It’s SOOOOOOO good…just bring a little packet of tissues.

    You’ve had a great reading month!! I am hoping next month mine will look similar!

    • Thanks, Renee! I have been bad with my ARCs but I have been ARC hopping for the last month or so. I just don’t seem to get into the books, you know? And some of these are even highly anticipated ones! gaaaaaahh

  3. Your tree is a thing of beauty! (Did Martha Stewart help you?) I am an Alice Clayton fan. Her books are always so fun. The Big Sick looks great. Glad you liked it. I am excited that you are so excited for December and have so many wonderful things to look forward to.

    • Thanks, Sam! No, I didn’t ask for Martha Stewart’s help BUT I looked at quite a few Pinterest Pins 🙂 This is my third year putting up a themed Christmas tree, so it was pretty easy to do, to be honest LOL
