November Wrap Up

 Wow. It’s December. Christmas month… aka the busiest month of the year! I am so not prepared for Christmas yet, I expect the next few weeks to be severely busy with barely any time to read or do much else… but we will see! November was a busy month or maybe it just flew by? Either way, I feel like it was just Halloween like a week ago!

I don’t have a lot to say really, as the most interesting things that happened I talked about already on the blog… so onto the wrap up 🙂

Challenges

Goodreads Challenge: Boo on this!  It’s apparent that I am not going to finish this challenge this year, but ah well! I’m currently at 73/100 books, so unless I fly through them in December it’s not going to be completed lol.

2014 Debut Author Challenge: I’m not doing so great with this either, and I doubt I’ll get any further ahead by the end of the year than perhaps another book or two. Currently I’m at 9 out of 20!

2014 TBR Pile Challenge: I could laugh when I write this: I am currently at a whopping 8 out of my 30 goal! I really, really need to focus on my TBR in 2015… I just kept adding to it and clearly not reading any!!

2014 Review Pile Reading Challenge: I haven’t had a chance to tally this up yet, although I know I have long surpassed it so I will have a total score for the end of the year wrap up!

2014 Series Challenge: Same story here… although I know I didn’t barely put a dent in this one 🙁

2014 Prequel and Sequel Challenge: I have to sit down and go through this because it’s a point based system and I haven’t had time yet! I will have it all tallied up for the end of year wrap up!

Notable Posts & Events

I participated in Novella November! I didn’t get as many novella’s read as I would have liked (only 2) but I still liked putting a dent in the ginornous pile, even if it’s only two 🙂 I also took part in the Ho-Ho-Ho Holiday Readathon. I didn’t get a lot of reading done, which basically is my trend this year, but I did get two holiday books finished so expect those reviews up this month !!

I also shared my picks for Top Ten Books I Want to Reread,  Top Ten Characters You Wish Would Get Their OWN Book, top ten sequels I can’t wait to get and the top ten books on my Winter TBR!

Once again I got a TON of books, which I posted about herehere and here!

I’ve been really behind on my reviews lately but I didn’t manage to get up my review for Jet by Jay Crownover! I finished this one SO long ago, I have no idea why I hadn’t posted it sooner!

I attended the first ever Toronto International Book Fair! I got to meet Jim Gaffigan and Deborah Harkness, came home with a ton of books and overall had a good time. There were a few things that I didn’t enjoy about the fair but for the first one I thought it was pretty good!

    Thank you for including our gift guide! There’s just one problem – our blog is actually Great Imaginations (not Pretty Deadly Reviews.) I’ve been trying to make sure the name changed everywhere when we merged our blogs but there are some things I can’t fix. I really appreciate your including us though!!

      Your welcome Bekka! Duh, I’m so sorry about that! That’s what I get for creating my wrap up too late at night to notice :/ All fixed now 🙂

    Thanks for the shout-out! <3

    I am SO bad at reading from my shelves. I keep buying books and just never get to them. I'm making it a major goal for 2015 to buckle down on those books – it's just so hard to avoid all the new releases!
