I can’t believe November has been and gone and December is flying by, like it always does! I didn’t even get round to doing an October round-up…fail!
November wasn’t the best month for me in real life terms. I lost my job, and started working in my friend’s pub to keep me going until I find something more substantial (it’s like going back in time 8 years – very odd!). Therefore my schedule has been all out of whack and with job hunting – gahhh, it’s taken its toll on my reading and blogging, but I’m trying not to put too much pressure on myself. I’m posting when I can!
Here’s what did happen on the blog in November though! I’ve included October reviews too.

After lifting my book buying ban to buy some books for Horror October, I’ve gone back to being good (broke) and didn’t buy any books in the last two months. I did go a bit mad in the virtual aisles of Netgalley though to make up for it.
All available to buy from Waterstones.
