November 2017 Recap


Well, guys, November was not great. As you will see below from the number of books I read. I’ve just had such trouble concentrating on anything. I mentioned last month that there was some family drama going on. While I don’t want to get really into it, my parents are divorcing. My mother is now staying with me in my one bedroom apartment until things are finalized, whenever that may be. In happier news, we had a great visit with my sister, brother-in-law and niece the beginning of the month. There were some stressful things we had to deal with, but we still managed to have some fun. It took a few days for my niece to really warm up to us, but she eventually did and we had such a great time with her! I was so sad when they had to go back to Canada. We also had a nice Thanksgiving at my brother and sister-in-law’s new house.

  1. I’m so sorry to hear about your parents, Steph. I hope things become less stressful over time. I’m glad to hear you had fun with your family. Does your sister live in Canada because she married a Canadian or because of one of their jobs?
    Stress tends to put a strain on my reading sometimes, too…but you still managed to read some, which is better than nothing! Sending lots of good vibes and love to you for a better December.

    • Thank you, Brandie! My sister married a Canadian and he has a good job up there that he doesn’t ever plan on leaving (although I guess any job can change enough that he may want to). They do have some offices in the US, but nothing really close to here, so they’re planning to just live in Canada forever.

  2. I’m so sorry to hear about your parents and I’m glad you had fun time with your family. I loved Follow Me Back and the huge twist at the end left me totally shocked. I can’t wait to read the next book. Anyway, I hope you have a great December! 🙂

  3. Hey Stephanie,
    I’m sorry to hear about your parents. As a child of divorced parents myself, I can attest that it’s a shitty situation, no matter how old you are as a child. :/ Maybe it’s for the best, you know? Both your parents will be happier now instead of fighting 24/7.
    All the hugs and kisses from Germany to you. ❤

  4. Aww man.. Hope you’re holding on and staying strong during these tough times, Stephanie. Glad to see you still managed to go through a lot of nice books (and wow @ the number of books read so far this year!!!) Here’s to an awesome month of December. 😉 Happy reading!
