Month in Review | October 2018 + #Booktube Talk


Month in Review October 2018 + #Booktube Talk

Hey, there November! Another end of another month brings with it yet another Finding Wonderland Month in Review recap-y thing aka our Month in Review October 2018. Let’s share all the past month’s recap thoughts.

Ciao, October 2018. Bonjour, November!

Here we go.

»Dear Readers« 

In case you didn’t notice, there are changes around Finding Wonderland. We’ve moved. I do plan to write a more thorough blog post about this, but in the meantime, I do want to let you know about updates.

If you’re a reader and you’d like to receive updates from this little space (THANK YOU to everyone who does want to), you’ll have to re-follow the blog. Or those who keep up to date via GFC will.

You can do this in one of three ways.

  • Sign up for the RSS Feed (once daily, at most, email update)
  • Sign up for the content update list (this one only goes out 1-2 x a month, at most)
  • Copy + Paste the URL into your Blogger dashboard via the “manage reading list” button (this option is if you’re old-fashioned – like me, and you still use the dashboard)
  • Follow via BlogLovin’ (the feed details I’m still trying to figure out, so that’s not being updated just now)

*Please note, to receive any of these, you will have to “confirm” via email, and this email may be sent to your junk folder

»Favorites & News from October 2018«

1: Blog | This space is a big work in progress because of all the re-formats that now have to happen. My sincere apologies. I’m trying to fix some every day, but going through nearly 2,000 backlogs of reviews is going to take a while. Thank you in advance for the patience and my apologies for those of you who may read the archive reviews.

2: Christmas Movies | This past weekend, Hallmark Channel debuted its first Christmas 2018 original. To be honest, I am really not ready (yet) for the invasion of Christmas (don’t mistake me, I love the holiday, but…). Nonetheless, I can admit I enjoyed Christmas at Pemberley Manor. Don’t miss their new premieres this weekend, Christmas Joy and Road to Christmas.

3: Organizing | This sounds boring to many, but I’ve been trying to get organized because I’m at my limit for living in disorganized favorites. It’s not the same kind of feeling (of fun) as I get from a new book, but I’m quite happy to be doing this task (which also includes getting my bookstagram stuff in order).

Silver Petticoat | Taking a look back at my month in review on Silver Petticoat.

Articles and Lists | As a “part 1” list, I ended October with a Countdown to Christmas (Hallmark) preview list. Needless to say, there is lots of new originals coming to the channel.

Film and TV Reviews | This past month involved some great new productions. These were, Forever My Girl (a swoony romcom); Ordeal By Innocence (Amazon’s new Christie adaptation); Sierra Burgess is a Loser (Netflix’s coming of age comedy); and The Turn of the Screw (with Michelle Dockery).

TV Recaps | None!

As always, thanks to the editors of Silver Petticoat and my fellow contributors! Working with you all is always fun.
