THE WITHERING WELL// October Wrap-Up

There is something about October that gets my blood racing. Those tingly feels on my skin and that excitement in my heart at the mere anticipation of its arrival – but it’s all fading away now, getting replaced with the quiet promise of chilly breeze and romantic days.

NOVEMBER is taking over the excitement of this spooky month andย I cannot help but feel enchanted by it. The change in weather during this time incites an even stronger change in me.

A warm hearth, a comfortable chair, a blanket, a hot cup of coffee, a book in hand, and love ALL AROUND.

M A Y (1)

With the promise of all these lovely things, I feel at ease.

So, join me as I bid adieu to the fun-packed month of October. โค

MY INCOHERENT POSTS OVER THE MONTH

//REVIEWS//

๐Ÿ–คย Rough Music by Patrick Gale was my first read of October and I WAS AMAZED by this author’s writing skills! This book left me awestruck. From complex relationships to heartbreaks, from mystery to catharsis, THIS BOOK HAD IT ALL! And I MUST urge you to read it AS SOON AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN!

๐Ÿ–คย I finally picked up Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte and MY ONLY REGRET IS THAT I DIDN’T READ IT SOONER! Such keen emotions! SUCH BEAUTIFUL WRITING! A mere mention of it and my heart starts spinning. LOVED EVERY SINGLE WORD OF IT!

๐Ÿ–คย October’s re-read was The Beauty & The Beast (THE COMPLETE VERSION, of course)ย and reading it again after soo many years made me realize why I fell in love with it in the first place! It was an enchanting read and I am tempted to make it a tradition to re-read it every few months! โค

๐Ÿ–คย I also made a post titled – A BOOK REVIEWERS Prayer + Promise + Warning – declaring what you can expect in my reviews.

//MY BOOKISH OBSESSIONS//

In October, I decided to obsess over love letters of Keats to Napolean Bonaparte and MAN WAS IT AN EMOTIONAL RIDE!!! I ENJOYED SHARING ALL THOSE LOVELY LETTERS – filled with longing, love, and jealousyIT WAS THE PERFECT SERIES. โค

John Keats’ letter to Fanny Brawne

Napolean Bonaparte’s letter to his wife.

Zelda’s letter to F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Another letter by Keats to Fanny. (this one had me bawling! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ )

//A BLOGGER’S LIFE//

๐Ÿ–คย It’s soo easy to get caught up in the never-ending chase of followers and likes and it happened with me as well. In my post titled – Beyond Comments, Likes, and Followers// How to Shake the Popularity Complex// – I talk about how I overcame my obsession with the stats.

tumblr_p64mt9ofsp1v46mjio1_500
๐Ÿ–คย People underestimate the amount of time and effort that’s needed to make a blog a success and I felt compelled to remind everyone AND MYSELF in my post titled – What does it take to be a better blogger? //E V E R Y T H I N G// – about some habits that the best ones out there make a part of their blogging schedule.

๐Ÿ–คย What happens when you live in constant competition with your fellow bloggers? When your desire to overtake them becomes bigger than your desire to have fun? Find out in – A RAT RACE //Surviving in a World where EVERYONE Wants to be THE BEST//

//A READER’S LIFE//

๐Ÿ–คย I am a very picky and irritable reader. ๐Ÿ˜ And over the years I have developed some very weird – some relatable some not so much – quirks when it comes to books and that’s exactly what I shared in my post titled – Confessions of a VERY picky, VERY moody, VERY stubborn reader.ย

๐Ÿ–คย Lashaan, as usual, writes THE MOST PROFESSIONAL AND AMAZING REVIEWS EVERR!! I love reading EVERY SINGLE ONE and I don’t even read comics. Yep, he is THAT good. Don’t believe me? Why don’t you go and read his review of The Witching Hour by James Tynion IV? You will know what I’m talking about.

  7. Rain, I love your writing voice so much! And also, your post on stats was so good! (Sorry I’m commenting about it here, haha.) You’re right that stats validate our work, but when we start to care about it too much, it gets bad. I’m trying to get way better about realizing that the number of views/followers/etc. I get doesn’t matter as long as I get them, because I’m just here to talk about books, and it doesn’t matter how many people listen as long as someone is.
    I hope you have a great November!! I love the vibe November gives out to! (and thank you for mentioning my review ๐Ÿ˜ญ)
