It’s hard to believe that November has already come and gone. I know that everyone says this, but it really does feel as though 2019 is flying by.
This past month, my reading was pretty disorganized. I struggled with depression and anxiety more than I have been recently, and as a result, I missed a lot of work and found it difficult to do anything more than feel sad most days. Fortunately, I’m feeling better now, partly because I changed to a different schedule at work. I’m also trying to get back into a regular meditation and yoga habit, which will undoubtedly improve things even further.
I’ve given up on trying to reach my ridiculous Goodreads reading challenge, which I over-ambitiously set to 225. I’ll be more realistic in 2020. I’m currently at 149 books finished, which is still really awesome! It’s the most I’ve ever read in a single year, and we’ve still got one last month!
In November, I read six novels, one novella, one anthology, and five graphic novels:
- The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco
- Dracula by Bram Stoker
- Birding is My Favorite Video Game by Rosemary Mosco
- Herding Cats (Sarah’s Scribbles, #3) by Sarah Anderson
- We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson
- Reincarnation Blues by Michael Poore
- Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who: Assimilation2, Vol 1 by Scott Tipton & David Tipton
- Mary Toft; or, The Rabbit Queen by Dexter Palmer
- The (Other) F Word: A Celebration of the Fat and Fierce edited by Angie Manfredi
- Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who: Assimilation2, Vol 2 by Scott Tipton & David Tipton
- The Gentleman’s Guide to Getting Lucky by Mackenzi Lee
- After the Flood by Kassandra Montag
- Nailbiter, Vol 1: There Will Be Blood by Joshua Williamson
Reincarnation Blues and We Have Always Lived in the Castle were definitely my favorite books for the past month. I’ll be posting my December TBR in an upcoming post.

Out of all my blog posts in November, the one I’m proudest of is An Example of What Bipolar Disorder is Like. It’s something that I’ve wanted to write for a while, and I’m glad I was able to share a peek of what my life is like with you guys.
