Monthly Rewind ~ October 2015

Posted October 31, 2015 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Features, Monthly Rewind / 25 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


  • My daughter started a soccer skills class and it has been to fun to watch her and see how much fun she is having with it.
  • We went to Disney this month. While Disney isn’t my idea for a great, relaxing vacation it was worth it to see the kids faces every time they met a character. They had a blast (in between tantrums, crying spells and not enough naps).
  • While in Disney I celebrated my birthday. We went to Epcot which is my favorite and had dinner at the steakhouse. It was a nice day.
  • Vacation totally screwed me up and I am still behind on the blog, reading and TV. Hopefully soon!!
  • Halloween is today. We are meeting up with some family and friends. The kids are Jesse and Woody from Toy Story which is the current obsession in the house.

The one that makes me happy I am not an astronaut:

The biggest disappointment: The Murderer’s Daughter

What’s Ahead

November is filled with lots of friends and family birthdays, lots of things to fill up my weekends, and lots of ARC  reading to get through. I want to knock a bunch out so I don’t have to worry about it at all during December which is super busy anyways. Oh and in October I got and then lost my 80% badge for Netgalley. I will get that damn badge back (and then probably lose it again) in November!

How was your October? What was your favorite book from the month?

  1. Looks like you had a fantastic month! I’m going to Disneyland next month as well for the first time (albeit, the one in Tokyo not in US XD) so I am supremely excited! I need to check out VANISHING GIRLS because I still haven’t read a Lauren Oliver and I heard she is coming to Aus next year?

  2. Aw, sorry about your Netgalley badge. You WILL get it back, that elusive thing! I’m glad Disney was fun (for the most part) and those are such cute costume ideas for your kids. I love Toy Story. I have a lot scheduled out for November, which I’m so excited about, but I hope to get even more scheduled this month so I’m good to go around the holidays, etc.

  3. Disney! I am still so jealous that you went. I also love Epcot and I hope your birthday was magical. I played soccer as a kid as well and I loved it. But my favorite book this month was probably The Near Witch, although I also read Love Letters to the Dead and thought it was so well done. Where has October gone?!

  4. Oh Disney looks like so much fun. I think it’s always better with kids. They just make everything seem so magical. 🙂 Hope you had a great birthday there! My favorite books in October were Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay and The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. Sea of Tranquility was a reread and it was just as good as I remembered.
