Bookish Post – Spell the Month in Book Titles: November

books

I knew that the last few months of the year would be tough in terms of the length of the names. I wasn’t expecting to struggle so much with some of the letters. For November, I know that V could be tricky but I thought E and R would be easy. Not for me, it turns out. What has happened to all of my E and R titled books? Despite this, I still managed to finish everything I needed this month. So, how did I do it?

Once again, I was worried that I wouldn’t finish all of the books that I needed to this month. November might have seemed like a long month but it also didn’t feel long enough. Thankfully, I finished my final book on the last day of the month. It feels like way more than 30 days since I read my first November read. It’s been a tough month. But what did I actually manage to read?

What have you been reading this week?

Another week is over and I’m exhausted. Thankfully, I’m only doing a 3 day week next week. Work isn’t normally very busy at this time of year but everyone is still swamped right now. There’s so much going on. Meaning I’ve barely been in the mood to read. I don’t think it’s going to be a problem finishing my November Reading Challenge but it’s going to be tighter than I’d wanted. I’m not going to be able to read one of the possible R books that I had lined up as a possibility but that’s okay. I’ll just have to find some shorter ones.

What have you been reading this week?

Remember when I said that November was going slowly? I was wrong. It’s actually going pretty quickly, which means it will be Christmas in no time. I’m not ready for that. I have so much shopping to do first. And so much reading. I thought that I was doing well on my reading this month but I’m definitely falling behind. I’m going to have make some strategic decisions to get everything finished in time.

What have you been reading this week?

I’ll be honest, I’ve not done well with reading this week. I don’t know why but I’ve just not felt like it. Thankfully, I’ve still managed to finish one, so I’ve not fallen behind schedule yet. However, I just haven’t found myself wanting to sit down with a book at any point. This means that I’m going to have to spend another Sunday reading. I’m sure that I can get it done but it’s not what I wanted. I don’t know why I can’t get into anything right now. It’s either the books I’m reading or the time of year. Of course, it doesn’t help that I’ve started playing Animal Crossing again. I just wanted to see what the latest update was like but I’m quickly falling back into the old routine. Need to sort myself out.

What have you been reading this week?

November is getting off to a slow start but we’re still only in the first week. It feels like we’ve been in this month for ages though. Time seems to be slowing down. Thankfully, I’ve still got a few days holiday to use, so I can take a bit of time off in the next few weeks. That will give me time to read and get sorted for Christmas. I’m trying to get ahead with my present buying. I don’t want to leave it until the last minute this year. That leads to bad present buying and too many presents for myself. I don’t need any more presents.

October ended up being a much better month than I expected. I finished everything with a bit of time to spare. I mostly did this by listening to multiple audiobooks when I was at work. I’ve always wondered how people read way over 10 books per month and I guess this is one of the ways. If you stick to shorter audiobooks, then you can get through so many in a week. It’s really something that I should do more often. But, what about this month? Here’s how my reading went over the past 31 days.

What have you been reading this week?

It’s been quite a quiet week this week. Mostly because I had 1.5 days off. I love a 3 day weekend but it seems to fly by so quickly. Although, it did mean that I could use my Saturday morning to finish my last book of the month without feeling as though I should be doing something else. I guess that’s another reason why I mostly read before bed. If I read during the day, I feel as though I should be doing something else instead. Thankfully, I’ve done pretty well this month and had a bit of time to spare. I don’t know what’s happened to me. Normally I’m panicking about finishing on time at this point.

What have you been reading this week?

In terms of reading, this has been another pretty successful week. I’ve been able to squeeze in 3 more audiobooks at work and have finished one of my most anticipated books of this year. Everything else has been less successful. I’ve been in a bit of a funk this week. It’s not been great and I’ve been feeling pretty bleak. I’m just overthinking everything and letting other people’s actions get to me too much. A habit that I’ve not been able to break for the past 30 years. It’ll be fine. I just need to get back into the right mindset. Thankfully, I have a few days off coming up, which should help a little. I just need a bit of a mental kickstart.

What have you been reading this week?

After last week’s disappointment, I’ve actually had quite a productive week. Thanks to having to get through a really repetitive and boring task at work, I’ve finished 3 audiobooks. Yes, they were quite short but that’s beside the point. In a matter of days, I have already made it over halfway through my monthly reading challenge, which is ideal. It means I might actually get to finish the two books that I have in mind for the other letters without having to rush. Hell, I might even manage another spooky book or two… but let’s not get ahead of ourselves. One good week doesn’t mean anything.
