Hi-diddily-ho, gang! How has your month been? For me, it hasn’t been too great. I went back to university last month and I’m already freaking out about my assignments among other things. At the beginning of this month, I had a minor health scare that turned out to just be me being a total hypochondriac, and then I got a cold, and I’ve just been in a pretty foul mood. That’s the main reason as to why I didn’t post any reviews all month, and I’ve just not had the chance to read. I’m sad to see that my Halloween event didn’t exactly go as planned, but at least I know the better way to organise things if I choose to do it again next year (I may participate in Oh! The Books‘ Horror October event next year because they’re way more organised than I am). I’ll be back to normal posts next week!
As for next month, I really need to knuckle down and focus on my assignments because I have two essays due in the middle of the month, and I have a creative writing assignment due in the beginning of December. I might make some posts here and there and I’ll be around to read posts and comment on them but I probably won’t be able to do some actual reading until December when I’m on Christmas break. I’ve had the idea of doing some wintery/Christmas themed reviews and posts, but nothing as big as what I’d hoped to do this month.
Also, I need some help! Lately I’ve felt like I’ve outgrown the blog name Nerdette Reviews, and I’ve been thinking about changing my blog name. For the fourth time. I don’t really think that Nerdette Reviews feels like me anymore, and I don’t think that it’s very original (I had a scroll through Bloglovin and found so many blogs with the word ‘nerd’ in its name. not that there’s anything wrong with it) so I feel like it’s time to change it up. I want something to do with aliens or space, and the word ‘Xenomorph’ was sticking out in my mind but not so much now because I watched Aliens (which is where the term is introduced) and I was really disappointed by it (‘Nostromo’ was stuck in my head too, but nah). If I do ever come up with something, I probably won’t change it for a while because a new blog name definitely calls for a new design, and I’d rather go for something more professional than something thrown together by myself. If you have any ideas or think you could help out, feel free to give me a hand!
