October & November 2020 Wrap-Up

“Jessica, it’s December,” I hear you saying, and yes, I know. NaNoWriMo started around the time I should have made my October wrap-up, and I just completely forgot everything I was supposed to be doing with this blog. Better late than never, I guess?

October was not the greatest reading month for me, since about midway through I realized I needed to start prepping for NaNo. I was churning out chapter outlines every day (some of which were 1000+ words) and reading kind of fell by the wayside. HOWEVER, I still managed to read five books in October and two more (technically three) at the tail-end of November.
