It’s already 3rd December, but I don’t think it’s too late to share with your some of the things I enjoyed during November!
Favourite Song: I’ve listened to ‘New Rules’ by Dua Lipa at least once a day, I love it!
Favourite Book: I’m currently reading, and enjoying ‘Wolves of Calla’, the fifth book in the ‘Dark Tower’ series but ‘Wizard and Glass’, which I read during November, stands out for me as the best installment so far. *Mild Spoiler* The majority of this novel is a flashback, but I really think it helps the reader to understand the main protagonist Roland Deschain, much better than any of the previous novels within the series.
Favourite TV Series: ‘Mary Berry’s Country House Secrets’ BBC series.
My mum saw the first episode of this new series and recommended that I watch it. Initially, I assumed that I wouldn’t like this at all, considering this is about stately homes in the U.K., however I found the first episode about Highclere Castle (AKA ‘Downton Abbey’) fascinating. A mixture of history, cooking and learning about the day to day running of these magnificent buildings; complete with Mary Berry’s charm and wit, means this is an interesting programme. I’m looking forward to watching the rest of this series.
Favorite YouTube Video: Ariel Bissett’s Discussion on ‘Competitive Reading’. I have been a subscriber to her channel for a while now and really enjoy her posts about reading and writing. The other day, she posted a video about ‘Competitive reading’ and her comments about reading pressure and ‘Good Reads’ resonated with me. At the beginning of this year, I signed up to the GoodRead’s Reading challenge and found myself reading books for the sake of it, rather than to discover new stories, characters and authors. I realised that the goal I really wanted to achieve was to enjoy the experience of reading, rather than reading to increase the number of books I read. So I stopped doing the Good Reads challenge and do not plan to participate next year. This video is quite long, but worth watching in my opinion :
The ‘Favorites’ series will be back at the end of December and I’ll also do a Reading Wrap Up at the end of the month!
What are your November Favourites?
