November Wrap Up

It’s been a quiet reading and blogging month as I’ve been doing NaNoWriMo… and I completed it! It’s the second time I’ve done it and it’s really motivated me to keep writing. I planned it a lot better this year and think my manuscript really benefited from it.

What I Read

Chasing the Stars by Malorie Blackman

Ottoline and the Purple Fox by Chris Riddell

Wild Fire by Anna McKerrow

Book Post

I’ve had some really exciting book post this month and need to get back into reading so I can get through them all!

Final 7 by Kerry Drewery

(Thanks Hot Key books!)

Norse Myths: Tales of Odin, Thor and Loki by Kevin Crossley-Holland

(Thanks Walker Books!)

What I Wrote:

As I said, I’m now an official NaNoWriMo winner. I think I owe the success in part to M. G. Leonard: I started listening to her podcasts on writing and was inspired to get up early to write instead of trying to do it after work when I’m exhausted. So I got up at 5:30 most days in November and it’s done wonders for my writing routine! I’d really recommend checking them out.

What I watched:


This month we’ve  watched the latest series of American Horror Story, and it was a struggle. I really wanted to like the series but it just didn’t do anything for me. We’ve moved on to Electric Dreams now and that’s really interesting.

What Little Moore Did

Little Moore has had two trips to the transport museum this month and has really loved it. He just wanders around pointing and saying ‘Car! Wow! Brummm!’ So cute!
