Week in Review: November 3 (Goodreads Choice Awards, Halloween, etc.)

missprintweekreviewThis week on the blog you can check out:

This was a pretty good week. I got to attend the Tenth Anniversary Celebration for the Goodreads Choice Awards. It was overwhelming but super cool. You can hear more about it and see my swag bag over on Instagram.

Halloween was super chill and I was really happy with my DisneyBound style Minnie Mouse costume.

I also finished Devils Unto Dust by Emma Berquist on audio. And it was so good! I need you all to read it immediately so we can talk about it. (And if you are an audiobook reader, check this one out. It’s fantastic.)

And I finally started to take pics with the raven snowglobe my mom bought me for Halloween which I’m really excited to show off. Here’s my first pic with my planned reading for the month:

Happy November! What do you have in store this month? What’s one book you will absolutely be reading? 📚 I can’t believe it’s November! This is a big month for me with Thanksgiving, my mom’s birthday, and decorating for Christmas. I’m excited. 📚 These are the books I plan to read this month (including some #arctober2018 holdovers) but in typical fashion I’m starting the month with a different book to try and cut down my #uppercasebox reading backlog! 📚 I was tagged by @deadtossedwaves to do the #5booktag. (I’ll tag some friends in a comment but feel free to join in with your own post or in my comments!) 📖Next Read: City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab 📖Current Read: Save the Date by Morgan Matson 📖Latest Book You Want to Buy: None—it’s the time of year where I stop buying books until after my birthday in January 📖Last Read: Devils Unto Dust by Emma Berquist 📖Book With a White Cover: Sadie by Courtney Summers 📚 #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #bookgram #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #kimmersbooks #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram

I’m still kind of overwhelmed–especially by money stuff. My first step is that I’m using my paper planner again and writing everything thing down. After that I hope I’ll have more data to work with to try and budget or something. I also get to call my credit cards and ask if they can do anything at all for me which I’m sure will be as fun as it sounds!

Here is my favorite post that I shared on Instagram this week:

Have you ever been personally betrayed by a book? Either with a plot twist or a change in direction? ▪️ My recent betrayal was more literal. I was listening the fantastic audiobook of Devils Unto Dust and realized an entire (very important) chapter hadn’t downloaded. I returned the audiobook to the library and re-downloaded to fix it. And I obviously had the print book to double check too. But now I feel like I can’t trust anything. ▪️ If you’re as big a fan of historical fantasies and westerns as I am, you need to add Devils Unto Dust to your to read list ASAP. ▪️ Ten years ago the sickness had a name as it started spreading across West Texas. Now, it doesn’t need one. No one survives the infection—it’s only a matter of time before the infected become shakes, mindless creatures intent on attacking the living. ▪️ Daisy “Willie” Wilcox is used to scraping by in Glory where she is responsible her younger siblings. But when her good-for-nothing drunk father steals four hundred dollars, it’s Willie who is expected to repay the debt. ▪️ Seeing no other options, Willie hires two hunters to help her cross the desert and track her father down. Leaving Glory for the first time, pushes Willie beyond her limits and teaches her who she can trust. But she’ll need even more than that to survive. ▪️ #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #bookgram #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #kimmersbooks #booksofinstagram #goodreads #audiobookstagram #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #emmaberquist #devilsuntodust #audiobooks
