October was my “birthday month” (I’m 16 now!) but it had it’s fair share of stresses. The PSAT wasn’t as bad as I expected it to be (but I’m pretty sure I didn’t ace it). This month, I also finally started organizing some of my “online” things: I made an ello account and a poetry/prose blog! I was also busy planning my nanowrimo novel (and fooling around on pinterest of-course).
So turns out that all the writing I was doing in my free time did indeed lead to me blogging less. But on a happier note, I definitely put a lot of time & effort into each of the posts I published last month. I’ll try not to disappear this month but I get the feeling that my absence is inevitable considering I’ll be buckling down & trying to hit that 50K for NaNoWriMo (add me as a writing buddy!)
October TBR Recap / Books I Read
Remember how I mentioned that I’m a mood reader..well I kind of didn’t really read most of the books I planned to – that is to say I only finished one book from the “tbr pile” I made last month: Bone Gap. I gave it 5 stars because it was FABULOUS. But I think I had a pretty good reading month. (I didn’t even encounter any 2 star reads!..Or if I did, I ditched them.)
I actually got around to posting some photos this month (and dare I say the first one is just a bit artsy?). The third photo is a reference to my obsession with temporary tattoos (a gift from a friend) and the second photo was taken on the night of my birthday!
