November has passed us (with a lot of rain) and thus brings forth December! *dancing elves and reindeer enter, carrying loads of candy canes and hot chocolate* I AM PUMPED FOR WINTER. AND CHRISTMAS.
(Also, my first Blogmas post! Yay!)
(And the fact that this was supposed to be published six hours ago but never did bugs me. Ugh, WordPress. You hath failed me so.)
- I got a lot of awesome blog post ideas from my Language Arts/English class! We read And Then There Were None and then watched the first film adaptation (which was terrible, btw), and did some discussions on book-to-film adaptations.
- THANKSGIVING! So much food. So much dessert. So many family members. (And that one sneaky instance in which I walk into the room and my mom and various other family members stop talking and just watch me….*shifty eyes*)
- It got super cold (like 40* already!) and then suddenly, this week, it shot back up to 70*. WHY CRAZY GEORGIA WEATHER. WHY. (There’s a reason our colony flunked.)
*shrieks* YAY MUSIC YAY SONGS
“The Wolf” by Mumford & Sons
I enjoy about three songs from the new Mumford & Sons album…but this one is really good. ❤
“Victorious” by Panic! At the Disco
THEY PERFORMED THIS AT THE MACY’S DAY PARADE. AHHHH. It was really short but still. AHHH.
“Alexander Hamilton” by the Hamilton Original Broadway Cast
I have officially jumped aboard the Hamilton train. TOOT TOOT. I’m halfway through listening to the songs in Act II. BASICALLY I LOVE IT. I didn’t think I would…because hip-hop and rap=frowny Evi…but I LOVE IT ANYWAYS.
Well, we already know I quit NaNo…so nada. zip. zilch.
Fave book this month? You Were Here by Cori McCarthy. ♥♥♥♥♥ I was not expecting to love this- recreating the dares that got Jaycee’s brother killed is NOT a smart move. But they weren’t dares as much as her visiting the places he’d gone, so that was okay. Yay for non-idiotic MCs! Also, this book had some unique formatting- there’s multiple narrators, and they each narrate differently. Jaycee is first person pov, Natalie and Zach are third person pov, Bishop is a one-page graphic design grafitti image, and Mikivikious was narrated in graphic novel form. So that was super cool.
Best cover? Also You Were Here. Everything about this book is just lovely. Y’ALL READ IT WHEN IT COMES OUT, OKAY? (Psst…it’s March 1st.)
Currently reading? The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin: THIS IS EVERY YA TROPE I DISLIKE YET I AM LOVING THIS ANYWAY. ACK.
Also: Mara and Noah are sassy little things. I love them. ❤
How Many Letters Are In Goodbye? by Yvonne Cassidy: Currently just lots of “ehhhhhhhhhh”. Rhea is super rude and just a grump and throws a lot of the “you don’t understand”/”nobody understands” around and tells Amanda she’s not gay when she comes out? What?! Ugh, Rhea. I DISLIKE YOU GREATLY.
I shared why I’m not doing NaNoWriMo this year…
…and gave a response to Barbie’s most recent commercial on girls.
Four posts. I have failed you yet again. *tears of shame* But I’m doing Blogmas, so hopefully I get going with that! *crosses fingers*
How was your November? Anything awesome, crazy, sad, odd happen? Share all below!
