November 2019 TBR

October Wrap Up 2019

Hello and welcome to my Monthly reading wrap up! A Little insight into this blog post: I should’ve written and scheduled this post yesterday; but I couldn’t be bothered, and now instead this is going up a bit belatedly… Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens: I actually only DNFd this book, but I put it on here anyway as a sort of update. The serial-readalong just really wasn’t working for me, because I was never that invested or interested in the characters or any of the short stories anyway. It didn’t help that over the … Continue reading October Wrap Up 2019
