Anyway - what I read and then we'll go onto NaNoWriMo and everything else
- The Shadow over Innsmouth by H.P. Lovecraft (3/5)
- Black Widow, Volume 3: Last Days by Nathan Edmondson, Phil Noto (5/5)
- Civil War by Mark Millar, + (3/5)
- Captain America: White #4 by Jeph, Leob, Tim Sale (5/5)
- Black Canary #5 by Brenden Fletcher, Pia Guerra (3/5)
- Wolf #4 by Ales Kot, Matt Taylor (3/5)
- Marvel's Jessica Jones #1 by Brian Michael Bendis (3/5)
I read a few more things then I thought I did, I guess I was just looking at the sad physical pile (3 single issues and a graphic novel). I read some interesting things this month. I'm really enjoying Cap: White and there's a lot of 3/5's in there, all for different reasons. Honestly, I forget sometimes how much Marvel comics can be awful at making me give a shit - this one failed spectacularly, and that fast as hell one eighty at the end left me kind of going what just happened?
On the other hand, I'm so sad that run of Black Widow is over, it was so damn good. Mostly the art. And her cat. The art was damn gorgeous through the whole thing, so much love.
Besides reading - and I think that's all I had to say - November was also very hectic. Apparently, a few days before the months started I dislocated my tailbone. this was unknown to me until the 1st where I spent like 12 hours sitting, typing, and was in so much pain by the end of it I couldn't walk / my whole back, pretty much, was hot to the touch. (Update - chiropractors are great, but tailbone is still dislocated. hey can go in and pop it back in, but will probably just happen again, at least from what I understood).
On top of that, instead of taking the light stress way of NaNoWriMo, which I am incapable of doing - I accidentally aimed for 300k. (I hate myself).
And it was just kind of a stressful month all around, I was at high anxiety levels, for some reason, for the whole month. And I know I'm less anxious when I'm not reading - and I'm really kind of not, a page here or there and some single issues but not really - and I really miss it. I miss reading, I know that I'm better balanced mentally, and also less anxious, when I am reading. So I'm hoping to put aside time to read in December, I've got a ton of books that are starting to impose a little since I haven't been reading anything and I'd really like to (also crochet, I just started a blanket, a throw, on the 28th and I'd like to finish it and then start a giant, full blanket because crocheting projects!)
Anyway - that was my month. High stress and anxiety, dislocated my tailbone, and I have no idea how it ended up being the end of the month already. I think I'm going going to put up a December TBR post and also start working on plans for this blog for the future. Because I've officially considered stopping, but I'd miss it and I love blogging (just I can't when I'm not reading, I feel like a fraud. Reading, blogging, back to YouTube - I have a feeling I'll get a kick from the New Year starting. So December night be a little empty here on the blog, but I'm hoping to try and get back into it again in January).
How was your month? What have you been up reading or just up to in general? I'd really love to know, I hope (regardless of if you celebrate Thanksgiving) that you had some pie this last week, because pie is delicious. And you deserve pie.
