Monthly Rewind ~ November 2016

Posted December 1, 2016 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Features, Monthly Rewind / 29 Comments

Monthly Rewind is exactly what it sounds like. A post to summarize the past month: Books read, my quick takes on them, top posts of the month, what I have been watching and what’s coming up. I will be linking up to Feed Your Fiction Addiction’s Monthly Wrap Up Round Up.

Break from Books


  • We celebrated my dad’s 70th birthday low key with some family.
  • I am still binge watching Dexter. I am halfway through season 6.
  • I am loving This Is Us and sad a lot of my other shows are now on break until January.
  • I watched Gilmore Girls A Year in the Life with my Husband and enjoyed it although a little shocked at the ending. Still, I loved revisiting with them all.
  • I got to see Billy Joel for the 5th time ( 3rd year in a row) with friends and he was amazing as usual.
  • We hosted Thanksgiving for my family and it went super well. Loved all the food, company and football.
  • I am pretty much done with Holiday shopping minus a few small gifts and gift cards. Now just to wrap!

  1. You had a great month! I’ve been so busy I’m ashamed to say I’ve only watched the first episode in Gilmore Girls but I did love it although I was sad Sookie’s character wasn’t there. 🙁 I’m hoping she shows up by the end or it just won’t be the same. I loved how they pretty much had everybody else though, so much fun!

  2. Sounds like you had a wonderful month, Grace! I’m glad to hear you liked A Year in Life. I haven’t heard the best thing and I decided to wait before watching. I did spoil myself though and I’m not liking the stories. I’ll still watch it though.
    I’m glad that you had a good Thanksgiving. Mine was spent doing homework ha!
    Have a great month ahead!

  3. You have had a great month. I am impressed at your organization skills with finishing the majority of your holiday shopping. I have an idea of what to get people but I just need to go out and actually buy them haha. I’ve just finished binge reading Sarina Bowen’s True North series and it’s just made me want to hop on a plane to Vermont and track down Grouchy Griff haha.
    I’ve been on the fence about watching This is Us. I’m curious to see what the hypes about but the hype is also intimidating cause I have high expectations now.
