Paper Bindings - Another Month Time Stole - October Recap

October Was Full Of Emotions.

To start, my sister was chosen at Ollivanders' to get her wand. 

It was like that moment in Mulan where Mushu was crying and saying "my baby's all grown up and saving China." Out of all the people I've ever known who love Harry Potter, my sister is the ultimate fan. So for her to be chosen, was a dream come true.

Naturally, I needed to buy the wand that chose her for her as an early Christmas gift.

I mean, how can you walk away from that wand?

Which was all the excuse I needed to buy myself a wand. I was waiting towards Christmas for reasons, but when in Diagon Alley...

On the bookish front, I'm kind of having a bookish crisis. 

There are just some things that are no longer working for me as a blogger anymore. Over the coming weeks/months I am going to be changing things up. Whether it is a simple reformatting of a post (notice the changes on this page? I'm like it a bit more now) or removing/adding somethings all together, I have a lot to figure out and do.

If You Look At It This Way

Paper Bindings

That DNF pile kills me! Was it because October was a stressful/emotional month? Or was it the books I was trying to read? A combination of both?
