Hello Goodbye is a monthly feature here at Such A Novel Idea highlighting a few of my favorite things from the past month. Enjoy!
Ahh, November. It was busy, busy, busy, and I honestly can’t believe it is almost over. The end of this year has just flown by! So, here are a few of my favorite things from this month.
The Curse Keepers by Denise Grover-Swank
This was such a great book and a fresh take on the new adult genre. Throw in some paranormal and some romance and you’ve got a 5 star book! Find my review here.
I didn’t add a whole lot to my repertoire, but what I did was really great.
Sharon Van Etten
I found this song at the end of one tumultuous episode of The Walking Dead. Within a few measures, I was already scrambling for my computer to buy the song. I’ve been listening to it constantly ever since. It’s hauntingly beautiful.
It was a close call
Sitting in the back of the room
with a bowl you had owned,
But they didn’t know.
Close in on my black eye.
I feel safe at times.
Tell me it’s time
Serpents in my mind
Looking for your crimes
I don’t want to mine to this time
I went to the movies TWICE this month, which is practically unheard of. But both were topnotch and I’m really glad I went.
Breathtakingly incredible. I can’t really find the words to properly express just how much I loved this movie.
I’m not sure who was more excited to see this movie: me or my daughter. I do know we had a LOT of fun quoting from the trailers. Quoting movies with five year olds are fun by the way. So the kids and I went Friday and LOVED it. It is definitely a movie I recommend, even if you don’t have kids!
Favorite TV Shows
I FINALLY got on the bandwagon (I know, I’m a couple of decades behind!) and have become obsessed with the show. Just in case you want to see my reactions, follow me on Twitter (@heartjess), because I tend to livetweet when I’m watching.
Things I’m Excited about in December
Today is my husband’s birthday! I love you hun. You are my best friend and I’m thankful everyday to have you in my life. ❤
These Broken Stars is FINALLY coming out! I can’t wait for the world to have it in their hands!
I’m ready to see my family. I haven’t seen them since September and it has been TOO long.
Well, that’s it! I hope November treated you well.
