Let's Pretend the Never Happened by Jenny Lawson

When I first decided to try to read forty books this year, I was a little overwhelmed thinking I wouldn't be able to finish. I'll set myself a loftier goal for 2018. Maybe I'll finally get around to reading the newest John Irving. Right now, I'm currently reading IT by Stephen King and Theft by Finding by David Sedaris. Two drastically different books.

October is my second favorite month of the year; November is my absolute favorite. The weather is perfect, Thanksgiving is involved, I can wear a sweater most days. What's not to love about November?
