November Wrap Up: A Month in Books!

November was a slow reading month. Work was a little stressful this month and it affected my reading a bit. I just can't get used to early mornings and before I can even pick up a book at night, I'm dreaming away absolutely shattered. I did manage to read 5 books though and one was a little chunky so I'm happy I managed to squeeze it in before the month ended. I read 4 review books (which I have yet to review but will do so asap!) for Netgalley November. My first book of the month was Taste of Darkness by Maria V Snyder and I was so excited to read this as I loved her two previous books in the series. It was an amazing ending to one of my favourite series of the year. I picked Witchstruck up not knowing if I'd enjoy it or not as I haven't read much books to do with witches. It was such an interesting book and I loved the mix of historical fiction and magic! Shadowplay was such an intriguing and complex book full of mystery and magic and I really enjoyed it. The last review book was Pawn and it really surprised me. It was exciting and full of twists and turns that upped up the suspense and gave a fresh spin on all of the dystopian books out there at the moment. 

My favourite book of the month - or my whole existence that is - was The Book Thief. I can't put into words how beautiful and earth shattering this book is. It was so perfect and so incredibly sad. I just sad there in shock after finishing the last line. It was beautiful.

  1. Ah, Taste of Darkness! Soooo excited to get my hands on it. I'm happy to hear you found the ending satisfying. That is always a worry of mine; the ending.
    Oh The Book Thief. There can't be anybody out there that doesn't love that book. It is amazing.
    Great November reads Becca!
