Happy November, friends! I hope that you all have been doing well. After I finish typing this post and it goes live, I will be replying to comments and (finally!) blog hopping the rest of the evening. (I seriously bookmarked blogs from, like, five months ago.) And while on the subject of drafting blog posts, this is actually my 200th one! :’)
The next coming weeks should be like the calm before the storm (because school will lighten up a bit since final exams are in December) but I also have lots to look forward to. I’ll be attending Yallfest again this year, and I actually have my fingers crossed that I’ll be meeting Cassandra Clare and Marie Rutkoski. Clare will probably be a wristband author with her books’ popularity so I’m not sure if I’ll be able to see her, but we’ll see. Anyway, do expect an event recap for that later this month. 😉
Also, it’s not much longer before I’m off for winter break. This semester flew by so quickly and was probably one of the most stressful ones I experienced academically (pharmacotherapy is very challenging; I wish medicine and therapy were black and white but there’s so much gray), but I’m praying that I’ll survive till the end, haha.
Anyhow this month’s recap will be on the short but sweet side, because I really didn’t indulge in too much aside from the crazy shopping. And I suppose this is a good moment to put in a self promo plug like last month… If you do want to see my hauls and keep up with me (since I’m kind of inactive in the blogosphere nowadays), Instagram is the best way to do it! XD
– What I Read –
I’ve been feeling really slumpy in terms of reading so I picked up a manga called House of Sun (3/5 Stars) in October. I finished all 13 volumes in a week. I think the best aspects of the series was the romance and family. Also the comedy was A+; Daiki, my favorite character, was so deadpan about everything and therefore absolutely hilarious. I really wanted to buy this after reading it online but, to my dismay, the series has yet to be released in English aside for the electronic version. (And I don’t see the point in collecting e-manga when these books are so expensive as it is.) I’ll add it to my list to purchase for the future though. It was such a joy to read-despite my relatively low rating.
Edit 11/4/17: Oh my gosh, I totally forgot that I also read They Both Die at the End (4/5 Stars) earlier in October as well. It wasn’t until I logged onto Goodreads did I notice it on my profile. You guys now know to what extent of how out of it I am with my reading game. I can’t believe I forgot what I read, and a 4 star book at that, lol. XD

- Summing It Up: September 2017 [Wrap Up/Favorites]
No surprise here. I’m still publishing once a month on the blog. >.< But hopefully this will change when I’m on winter break December-January.
