Hey there everyone! I hope you’ve all had a great weekend and are having a wonderful Sunday. I’m spending the day relaxing, but also plan on getting some cleaning done later (fun stuff). I went to a Christmas parade last night, so that was fun. It’s always one of the highlights of November, since Christmas is my favorite holiday. I dragged my friend April along and she was like why are we going to a Christmas parade to which I responded with because Christmas. She just started her own book review blog on WordPress. Check her out here!
But, anyway, onto the books! I didn’t get as much reading done this week as I did last week, but I’m definitely still speed reading and making up for that silly slump I was in.

As you can see, I got a bit carried away at the Library yesterday. But, most are graphic novels, so I should fly right through them. I finally decided to start reading Death Note; it’s been on my to-read for so long. I had to control myself from not checking out more than the first book in the series, since my Library had a ton of them. So, we’ll see how that goes. I haven’t read a Manga in years. I’m excited to get back into.
