aseries3 A Series A Month is hosted by Danielle at Love At First Page.

I just utterly failed here. I fell into a bad reading slump after I finished Winter because I didn’t want to read anything and I missed the Rampien crew.

Favorite Things This Month:

This was a fun book event month! Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman had an Illuminae event here and it was so much fun to meet them and hear them talk about how they wrote Illuminae! I mean, it’s such a unique book, it was fascinating to hear about their initial ideas and copy edits and things like that. Plus, those two are hilarious! (If you have not read Illuminae yet, I HIGHLY recommend it. It’s one of my favorite reads of the year!)

Then, there was the Winter launch party, a Lunar Ball! It was so much fun to get dressed up and attend! I was shocked at the number of people that were there! They had fun Lunar tattoos and a mask decorating table as well as an Artemesia backdrop for pictures! It was a lot of fun to hear Marissa Meyer talk about her series and hear her tell the Grimm fairy tale version of Snow White. (The only part of this event that bummed me out was that they had a short performance of a scene from Winter — except the scene was from chapter 40-something so hellooo spoilers. Grr.)


So tell me about your November! What did you read? What were your favorites? Tell me what you’ve been up to!

  1. The Lunar Ball looks AMAZING! I love that everyone got dressed up to attend it; I would totally have done that too. And yes, Winter is totally amazing 😀

  2. So glad to see that you read The Girl From The Well. I really liked that book. I loved the Japanese culture and also that it inspired me to research some aspects of the culture. For instance, I have done so much research on Okiku since then. It’s so fascinating. Do you plan to read The Suffering?
    The Lunar Ball looked incredible! So glad you could attend. You look absolutely gorgeous!
    You had a pretty great November, I wish you an even better December!

  3. A LUNAR BALL?!?! Oh.Em.Gee! That looks and sounds amazing, that you so much for sharing pictures Wendy 😀 Everyone all dressed up and having a Lunar old time LOL! That spoilerific performance sucks though, like what even?! You read and listened to a lot of good books in November…WOW! I can’t wait to sink my teeth into Winter, it’ll be my next read after I finish Truthwitch 🙂 Have a lovely December my dear! ♥

  4. That looks like such a great launch party and you got to get all fancy! I need to read all of those books that you read; they look great!
