November: Month in Review + Book of the Month Giveaway

Hey everyone! I hope you've had a productive and fun November. Make sure you stick around to the end of the post for a book giveaway you won't want to miss, one of my top reads of the month. While you're here, you might want to check out this week's non-review highlights (Cover Snark and a rant on Instalove), as well as some reviews. :) Comments give me much joy. Just saying.

Book of the Month Giveaway:
This month, I had several powerful reads that I would love to feature. However, I'm only offering up one. Making the choice was difficult, but having just finished this one last night, I cannot resist choosing Just One Day by Gayle Forman. Since this one doesn't come out until January 8, I will preorder the book for the winner. This giveaway is international. Just fill out THIS FORM with your name and email by December 18 and leave a comment on my review by December 14 at midnight.

How you get through so many books I'll never know! My 12 looks pathetic in comparison ;-)

And I thought you said 8 in your vlog. Must be the ear wax.

Ok, I should stop bothering you. Carry on reading.
