Recent Updates and Currently Reading | November 6

The Astros won the World Series. It's been a rough few years for Astros fans, and that was a hell of a series.

Is anyone participating in National Novel Writing Month? I am, and it's going so-so this year. I love participating, though. My writing tastes have changed a lot over the years, and it's kind of fascinating.

I managed to post some reviews last week, and I'm still reading - so that's good news on the book front! I have a little bit of a freak out every November because the year is about to end and I've read a fraction of the books I had planned to read. My reading probably always picks up this time of year especially once Goodreads announces the Goodreads Choice Awards. I like to squeeze in a few more new release books before I vote.

  2. I know I will be going into a sad office tomorrow. My campus is close to Philly, so many fans on my team. I guess someone had to lose. Good luck with Nano. I hope you are truly inspired.

    1. Oh, no. It's so hard when the season ends especially when it doesn't end how you hoped!

  3. I'm glad you're enjoying your horror but it's not for me. Although mystery and scfi that have a bit of horror work for me.

  4. The Golden Couple - didn't those authors write Horrorstor? That was a super creative story so I might have to check this one out. Hope you have a great week.

  5. Enjoy National Novel Writing Month. The Sarah Gailey book looks good. I feel the same about this time of year, I start to look back on what I read for the year and try to get more in before the New Year.

  6. Yea for the Astros! Their fans have had a bumpy road lately.
    The Doll in the Garden sounds and looks intriguing and I’m not even into horror novels! 😊
    The Golden Couple is on my TBR. I’m wondering if my granddaughter would enjoy the Marshall series. I’ll have to check that one out. Thank you for sharing!

  8. We had to avoid downtown when we drove through Houston today on our way home after the Texas Book Festival. I think there was a big parade for the baseball team.

    I'm doing NaNoWriMo but I'm not being too serious about it. I'm just trying to get back into the habit of writing every day. So far, so good.

    1. Good call. I wouldn't have gone anywhere near that parade! I'm trying to get back into the habit, too, but I'm not having much success.

  9. I haven't done nano in years! One day I would love to get back into it though, maybe when the kids are older and I have a bit more free time. Good luck to you though!

    1. I have trouble doing Nano the way I could many years ago. But I still like to try.

      Delete
  10. Good luck with NaNo! I have the November freak out almost every year. I have a zillion books sitting on my shelf that I was supposed to read this year but didn't. :(

  11. I feel the same this year about my reading. I've had a tough time concentrating for some reason and I'm reading less. Oh well!

  12. Congrats to your team winning! That's exciting! I'm not really a sports fan so I don't pay attention to stuff like that.

    I'm participating in NaNo, but not until Tuesday and then I'm going to go until the 14th of December. My arm is finally at a point where I can type again. :D

    1. My Nano is going to have to go past November, too, but that's find with me.
