Sum-Up SundaysNovember

November was a really good reading month for me, even if everything else in my life was a bit of a mess… work has been difficult & I had an operation, but like I said – good reading month! Also, yes I know, this is a week late; I’m totally failing at running my blog right now.

GoodReads Review

In my last Sum-Up post I said that I had seven reviews to write & that I was determined to write all of them up by the end of November – that absolutely did not happen but I’m hoping to start the new year with a clean slate & no reviews to catch up on. I currently have seven reviews (again) to write up, & these are: The Land of Stone Flowers, The Sisters of Winter Wood, XX, The Women Who Lived, Molten Heart, Combat Magick & Bunny Slopes – I will get these done by the start of 2019.

Reading Challenges

At the end of November my GoodReads was up to 73 out of 80 books – my goal is within reach!

My Doctor Who Challenge:
Yassss, I read two Doctor Who books again this month so I’m very happy with myself… one was great, & the other wasn’t so great. Ah well.

Page Count Challenge:

  • January: 1908 pages
  • February: 2577 pages
  • March: 2237 pages
  • April:  1926 pages
  • May: 1953 pages
  • June: 1821 pages

  • October: 2008 pages
  • November: 2474 pages

I read the most pages I’ve read since February last month & I’m so proud of myself for it! My pages in November takes my yearly total up to 21,858 pages – there’s no way I’m hitting 30,000 pages by the end of the year but I genuinely don’t care because I’ve read some great books this year so that’s all that matters.



In November I had my bladder procedure done & so far I think it might be working? I am going to have my bladder meds up though because they don’t seem to be working like they should be. Why am I so broken?!

I’m not sure what else to say here because I was hoping I could shout about the fact that I’m finally being referred to a syringomyelia specialist in London called Mr Bassel Zebian, but I’m not sure what’s happening with that now because my GP’s secretary seems to be making the whole thing more complicated than it needs to be. I’m desperate to see someone who knows what they’re talking about in regards to my illness – I just want a doctor to support me.
