October 2018 Favorites

I will riot.

How does time keep slipping away? Like how is October over? It was just July what feels like yesterday. And more importantly, what am I doing with my life? Ugh. October was a weird month. It was simultaneously really busy and also not that busy. A lot of new stuff happening and a lot of stuff that needed preparation, but not that much real work. So there was time for reading and stuff – so let’s talk about favorites!

Favorite Book

That being said, this month I have a tie between two favorites! I loved Monstress Volume 1 so much, it has the most gorgeous and unique art ever and the story is so powerful and exciting. It’s been a while since I was this obsessed with a book. And the other favorite of the month is Little Fires Everywhere. I was head over heels for this book. It’s a story about family and parents and children and it’s really, really superbly written and also incredibly insightful and smart. I highly recommend both of these, they are amazing.

Favorite TV Show

Guys, I just started This Is Us and I am obsessed with it. I have only seen the first two episodes and I wasn’t entirely aware of the premise when I started and I was just mind blown by the end of the first episode. And also, I am just head over heels with the characters and it’s such a wonderful, very human story and I can’t wait to watch more. I have only seen the first two episodes (no spoilers) but I already know this is gonna be one of my favorite shows ever. Please watch it!

I also saw The Dragon Prince this month and it was superb! I loved the animation and the story is super fun so I also highly recommend that one too!

Favorite Music

Khalid’s music is amazing, I have loved his stuff for a while now, and this EP is sooo good, I highly recommend it. My favorite song on it is probably Suncity but all of them are good. Go give it a listen and then check back with me!

Favorite Posts

This has been a slower month for me, because school started, but I had some pretty good posts, if I do say so myself. Favorite ones are probably my newest blogging tips on How to Make Your Blog Pretty, the discussion on author interactions and the one on reacting to negative reviews because it was super fun. And thank you for all the love on those!

As for everyone else, you guys rocked as always:

All great posts, all great people, go check these posts out!

Random Favorite

Football season is on! I can’t believe I still haven’t talked about it. My Sundays are now reserved for football and it’s been a great season. I am gonna need you all to root for NO Saints, because I love them. And this has been great for my reading as well, because football lasts for a long time, and I always read in between plays, so I get a lot of reading done. Yay!

And those are this month’s favorite things. Let me know your favorite things of October, especially books, I’d love to know!

  1. Thank you for linking to me and my ridiculous review. I’m surprised that you watch American football – personally I hate all team sports so I don’t watch it, BUT I used to live in New Orleans so I’m very happy that you support the Saints. Who dat!

    1. Of course – I loved your review! And people are always surprised by the fact that I watch it. I am even surprised since I have never participated or been a fan of any team sport. But I love this! And YAY for Saints! Who dat! 😁

  2. Thanks for the shout out, I’m so glad you’re enjoying my ramblings, because they are now a staple feature!! ….I think I’m going to have to start avoiding your posts because first I ordered that Black Future book the day after seeing it in your covers post, and when I preorder it, I also bought Monstress because you raved about it on Instagram, you’re becoming too expensive to follow 😂

    1. It’s amazing so far! I think just knowing the genre (it’s like a contemporary, family drama) is enough, just to make sure you’re into that kind of stuff. And then I would go blindly into it, I was so impressed with the first episode!


    1. Thank you! I have no idea I am sure we’ve entered a warp in the space-time continuum because time is WEIRD. I feel like it was January yesterday. Eh, I lowered mine at the start of the year (because I knew I could not read as much as last year) so I feel ya! There’s always that last minute reading of graphic novels to boost the number 😂

  3. I’m huge into football too! I watch all day on Sunday! Who is your team? I’m a Packers fan AKA a cheesehead. From Rochester NY though, but the Bills suck! My dad is a Dolphins fan and my mom’s from Buffalo. They went to a Bills vs Dolphins game on their honeymoon in Miami. They got honked at bc they had NY plates and had a dolphin painted on the side of their car. LOL

      1. I LOVE Rodgers. I nearly cried when it looked like he was going to be out for the season in the middle of the FIRST game. Last year sucked without him. Rodgers is what made me a Packers fan and really got me into football.
