Current Word Count- 23,000 words. I’m still a little behind but its no big deal, I think I can catch up today and if I can, I am going to reward myself with going to Barnes and Noble and buying a book for every 1000 words I write. If that’s not motivation then I don’t know what is.
Songs I’ve been listening to- Champion by Fall Out Boy
This song has been so inspiring to me. Especially the lyric “If I can live through this, I can do anything!” I just feel like I can take on the world and also take on this novel, I hear that song and I think “yes I got this!”
My favorite sentence so far- I will walk forward, hand in hand with betrayal and heartbreak, as they are my constant companions.
Some favorite snacks- homemade Pumpkin bread, oh my this is so good, I got the recipe years ago from one of my best friends and its her grandmother or great grandmothers recipe. Also white cheddar rice cakes, I don’t know why but they are so addicting!
Tome Topple Round 7 is going to be taking place from November 16th- November 29th
I started The Final Empire last round and decided that I needed to continue with the series for this round, I loved The Final Empire and I am ready to continue with the series. November has been the month of big books for me.

I’m a bit behind, I know, but I plan to try to catch up over this weekend, my goal is to get to 15k and that honestly doesn’t feel daunting, like I think I can do that.
Songs I’ve been listening to- Ship to Wreck by Florence and The Machine. My favorite lyric from this is “I can’t help but pull the Earth around me, to make my bed,” and that lyric is just perfect for my main character.
My favorite sentence so far- “Everyone likes to bring up that that are two sides of every story until the villain wants to tell their side.”
Some favorite snacks- Salt and Vinegar chips and chocolate cake. Not together but I have been craving those things like nothing else. I’ve also been chugging water like I’m gonna run out, weird right? I plan on picking up some clementines and have those to snack on.
Are you doing NaNoWriMo? Hows it going for you?
Also, I need some snack ideas, what do you like to snack on?
A fantastic epic fantasy, it’s about Kvothe who is telling his entire story to a scribe for the first time, but its so much more than just hearing someone’s life story. There are layers that I just can’t do justice to describe.
This mostly met my expectations, I have a weakness for assassins and school settings, maybe that gave me a bit of a bias when I started this book, but I did enjoy the dark humor and just overall dark this story was.
The Night Circus
This is beautifully written, I’m really not sure what else to say, the circus is written so beautifully and whimsical, this is one of those stories that has a sense of magic pouring off of the pages.
Oh my, what a month! September seemed to fly by and October felt like it just dragged by. Octobers a great month so I didn’t mind., but I’m looking at this list of 20 plus books and I’m just in disbelief at myself. Apparently, I didn’t do anything this month other than reading. Again, not a complaint, just disbelief.
