Month in Review
1.) 1989, Taylor Swift: I know, technically this one came out in October, but whatever, it was late October and this is my first month in review, so I *had* to share again (even though I know I've gushed about this album at lot. I'm really liking Taylor's second single, 'Blank Space' and the music video? Wow. Quite creative.
2.) Cinderella (2015): have you guys seen the full-length trailer for Disney's Cinderella? Oh, my, please tell me you have guys!? I sure hope so because it's awesome. The colors, the sights, the magic, the cast... just everything is beautifully rendered in this trailer.
3.) INSPYs 2015: conversations for the 2015 INSPYs season has begun. It's just some here and there thoughts, but I think I speak for the entire advisory board when I say we're excited to see what comes of this year. At the end of December the nominations will open (yay!), which means you guys get us started by nominating your 2014 favorites and leading up to that, the plan is to post some blogs about nominating and all we'd like you to consider when trying to decide which categories you should nominate those books in. Whether it'll appear here or on inspys.com I'm not sure, but there'll be lots of tweeting and information about any updates no matter where the news appears.
4.) Gotham: what a dilemma this show has been. I really am loving it as one of the best of the 2014 TV season, but golly, it tests some things for me. That being said, I'm fascinated by the world (it's blend of past and present) and of course, love seeing the characters before they became superheroes - Jim Gordon in particular is a brilliant character and I'm enjoying Bruce's younger self too; he's really not much different as an adult. So far. Are you watching this one?
5.) Sally Hansen: I've only recently decided that I love Sally Hansen's complete manicure nail polishes. Just recently I picked up two more in AWESOME, rich, dark colors and I'm loving them. Do you have any nail product favorites?
(My) Blog Favorites:
1.) Belle: this was one of my favorite reviews to post this month - because, seriously, this movie is quite good, especially for those of us costume drama buffs!
2.) My True Love Gave to Me, edited by Stephanie Perkins: despite some gripes here and there, I so enjoyed this collection of Christmas stories! If you've read it, let me know your favorites.
3.) Top Ten Tuesday, Booktube: lastly, this was another favorite post for me to put together. Always have fun being a spectator in the Booktube world - these are a few of my favorite channels.

This past month I had the opportunity to begin contributing to Silver Petticoat Review and excuse me a moment while I express excitement over this opportunity! These ladies have been one of my more recent finds since beginning to blog, and I so enjoy the content and style they have so it's a pleasure to be able to contribute to their classy site - one that's full of fabulous writing and information. Right now I'm recapping the CW show, The Flash and if you guys watch it, I'd love to chat about it with you!
That's the month in review here at Dreaming Under the Same Moon.
It's been a good month and one FULL of Christmas reviews, and just in case, those of you that are weary of the reviews, my apologies, there are more coming along with some book-to-movie adaptation reviews I recently watched.
Have any thoughts or favorite finds from the month? Share if you'd like!
Hope you're looking forward to ushering in December - it's almost here!
