Stefanie's November Wrap Up

Another month done, November went by so quickly. Can't complain though, I enjoyed the fact we barely had any snow (and if I had it my way we'd get snow maybe December 20th and it would melt by January 4th).

 Now that it's December I feel like I can tell everyone that in between reading and work, I've been obsessively watching those cheesy made for-TV Hallmark Christmas movies since November 1st (you are right I'm lying, I did start one October 27 because Showcase aired it). I can't get enough of them even if the plots are basically the same thing with new character names and different casts. A couple of my favorite of them have been Merry Matrimony, Perfect Christmas List (with Beth Broderick, Sabrina the Teenage Witch fan for life here) and A Royal Christmas.

 If you have no idea what I'm talking about that's nothing to be ashamed of (at times I secretly wonder if I have a life when all I do for November and December is binge watch as many Christmas movies as possible). That'll have to come to an end soon since Fuller House season 2 airs so soon!

As for the books, another solid reading month for me. I tried my best to get some more books read that have been sitting on the TBR shelf for a good three years, so this month was mostly dedicated to that.

I read:

The Breakup Bible by Melissa Kantor (1 star)
Kissing Booth by Lexie Hill (3 stars)
Frosted Kisses by Heather Hepler (4 stars)
Deadly Cool by Gemma Halliday (4 stars)
Love? Maybe by Heather Hepler (5 stars)
Megan Meade's Guide to the McGowan Boys by Kate Brian (3 stars)
Jinx by Meg Cabot (re-read) (4 stars)
In Such Good Company: Eleven Years of Laughter, Mayhem, and Fun in the Sandbox by Carol Burnett (5 stars, here's a secret about me, I loved Carol Burnett, Went With the Wind might be one of my favorite scenes ever)
Sweet Sixteen Princess by Meg Cabot (re-read, 5 stars)
My Unscripted Life my Lauren Morrill (3 stars)
The Boy is Back by Meg Cabot (5 stars)
Gemina by Amie Kaufman (3 stars)
Where Am I Now? by Mara Wilson (5 stars)

Book of the Month:
Is it possible to have a tie with three books?

The Boy is Back
by Meg Cabot, Love? Maybe by Heather Hepler and Where Am I Now by Mara Wilson. If I had to pick one it would be Meg Cabot, but to be not so predictable, I'm picking Love? Maybe, there was just something so sweet and fun about it.

I'm now off to go binge some more Christmas movies and tackling a couple for TBR's before I get into my Christmas/winter reads.

Until my next review,


  1. Great month! I've been meaning to check out those cheesy Hallmark movies as well but I can never catch them when they're on.

    Happy reading, Stephanie!

  2. Heh, I've never tried a Hallmark movie before, but they do sound like good cheesy fun! Congrats on the excellent month in reading too!


I love comments! So please leave them and I will make every attempt to return the favor!
