November wrap-up!

Happy (almost) December, friends! I hope your November was great! Mine was super busy with work and the bar course, but I did manage to do some reading! I only posted one blog post, but it was honestly a nice break. We’re coming up to my favourite time of the year, yearly wrap-up posts! So expect a few more posts throughout December and January.

Books Read

  • Check, Please! Volume 2: Sticks and Scones by Ngozi Ukazu: 5 stars
  • A History of my Brief Body by Billy Ray Belcourt: 4.5 stars
  • The Water Cure by Sophie Mackintosh: 4 stars
  • She Drives Me Crazy by Kelly Quindlen: 4.5 stars

This is the most I’ve read in months and I’m so happy about it! I inhaled The Water Cure and She Drives Me Crazy, and I have a couple other exciting books I plan on reading soon, so yay!

Currently reading

  • Red Comet by Heather Clark: I am much more considering DNFing this now that it’s been about a month since I listened to it. I think I’m going to pull the trigger and officially put it down.
  • I don’t want to list any specific books in case I jinx myself lol but just know I’m excited and happy that I’m excited

Things watched

  • Survivor: Africa: I really enjoyed this season! It was super entertaining and I really enjoyed it. I was happy with the winner and honestly surprised by the top two.
  • Survivor: Marquesas: we’re about 2/3 done this season, and I’m really enjoying it! Surprised at how early Boston Rob gets voted out 😦 but enjoyed him while he lasted. I’m not sure who wins this season, which is exciting.
  • Squid Game: I finished Squid Game earlier this month, and thought it was good! I thought the ending was a little rushed and there were some loose ends. I have a ton of questions still. I also just wanted Gi-Hun to be a good father 😦 but overall, definitely enjoyed it and recommend.
  • The Bachelorette: this season has been super entertaining IMO. Very funny, very stupid. I’m happy with the top four and I’m excited to see how it ends!

Reviews posted

Other bookish posts

None! I took a bit of a blogging break, and I think I’ve decided how I want to blog going forward: essentially, just writing posts when I feel like it. I felt like I was forcing posts again, so now I’m just going to be more chill, write when I want to write, and go from there!

Other news and highlights

  • November was insanely busy with work and it went by in a flash.
  • The biggest news is that I ran my first ever trial! I got to cross-examine a police officer, which was fun. And then the complainant admitted in his testimony that he spat on our client, so the charges were withdrawn! Overall, it was a great experience and I was so happy with how it went.
  • I had a girls night with my sister and her best friend, which was a lot of fun! We did a face mask and watched a couple episodes of Shadow and Bone, and it was very relaxing and a great time overall.
  • Some of my friends and I went out to celebrate our friend’s birthday! These friends are coworkers turned bffs, and I hadn’t seen so many of them in weeks, so it was so great to catch up. We went to dinner and then got dessert, and overall just had a great time. It’s been so long since I did anything with friends, and it was nice to have some normalcy lol
  • I had quite a few long days at work, but work has been good! It’s been a good busy.
  • I’m really excited for the holidays! I love decorating and shopping and celebrating and all that. This month, we have my work Christmas party, my friends and I are doing a white elephant, my boyfriend’s friends are doing a get-together, we have a couple of other work festivities! Basically, I’m excited.

How was your November? What have you read this month? Have you watched anything recently? Let me know!
