Hi everyone. How are you? It’s a few weeks before Christmas. I think 2013 is just going by so fast. November was a busy month for me. Once again I was having a difficulty finishing NaNoWriMo. I was unable to achieve my NaNoWriMo challenge this year T0T but I learned a lot from it. It’s really hard to write a 50,000 words novel in a month. The story I wanted to write ended up changing each week and the genre I chose to write about got shifted from contemporary YA to sci-fi YA unconsciously >o<. Therefore, I’ll keep the draft I’ve written and work on it in the future. The second and third week was hard because I couldn’t come up with any good ideas. This means I need to read more books and watch more films to get more inspiration. Maybe when I get some editing done, I’ll post a few chapters up for you all to read.
I finished one book and I started three more. I have that habit of reading multiple books at the same time, which is not good at all. A few reviews will be posted up this month so be sure to look out for them. I also went to watch The Hunger Games: Catching Fire last weekend and the movie was awesome. I love the casts and the story. It was just so good. There were some teary moments for me during the Victory Tour. I did finish reading Catching Fire earlier this year so now I really want to finish reading Mockingjay to see how it all ends.
On other note, I'm planing to finish Insurgent soon since Allegiant came out and I also want to know how it ends. In addition, I got my hands on two novellas: Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi and No Place Like Oz by Danielle Paige. I’m halfway through both of the novella so their review will pop up in the near future.
Lastly, a lot of my reading time this month got spent on reading lots of manga. I finish reading the last few volumes of Air Gear by Oh Great! which I adored. It's so much fun. I also caught up to Magi:Labyrinthe of Magic. This has become another of my favorite manga. I can talk all day about manga but these were two of the favorite manga I read last month.
If you would like to read more posts about anime, manga, and Japanese pop culture, please feel free to check out my other blog called Inside the Shell. Check it out --> here
I'd totally love to post manga reviews on this blog too but it goes along better with the Inside the Shell blog.
That's it for now and have a happy holidays. Happy Reading.
