Monthly Round-Up! November 2018

Monthly Round-up, linking everything that has happened in the last month, posted on the last day of said month. This Round-up November 2018. Sorry that it has been quite on the blog for so long! I have just been super busy with work in the lead up to Christmas. As everyone wants everything done and dusted well before Christmas. And because of that I don’t have much motivation to read. I am more in the mood to come home and sleep over everything else.   Reviews:   Blog Tours:   Challenges: As per usual I’m participating in the Goodreads Challenge. With only a month to go I’m not entirely sure that I will be able to complete my challenge this year. Should I lower my goal?   So what do you think of my round-up November 2018? What have you read this month? Let me know in the comments below! Subscribe to Blog via Email Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email.

So when fellow film geek Sahil Roy approaches her to direct a movie for the upcoming Summer Festival, Twinkle is all over it. The chance to publicly showcase her voice as a director? Dream come true. The fact that it gets her closer to her longtime crush, Neil Roy—a.k.a. Sahil’s twin brother? Dream come true x 2.
