I had a rather interesting reading month this month! I thought I was having a bad one where I hadn’t read very many books, but I ended up reading 16, which is pretty good in my opinion. I also read my longest book of the year this month, and did okay at catching up on some series that I had been procrastinating on. Find out what I read below the cut!
Archives for November 2019
There were so many books I wanted to read in November but I was good! I only bought a few books for me, and then I got a few books for Christmas gifts.
One of my most anticipated reads this month, this year even, was Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater. The Raven Cycle is one of my favourite series and when I caught the first hint of the upcoming Dreamer Trilogy, I was super excited. I knew I had to read it and get my own copy.
***Disclaimer: I received a free early access copy of The Girl the Sea Gave Back by Adrienne Young from NetGalley through Wednesday Books for review purposes. Thank you to Wednesday Books for sending me a gifted copy of the finished product!
When I heard that Adrienne Young was coming out with a book similar to her debut, Sky in the Deep, I knew I absolutely needed to read it! It was one of my most anticipated releases of 2019. After a bit of a hiccup in my reading, I was finally able to devour it in a short time.
Everyone’s got a TBR pile, some are just bigger than others.
**Disclaimer: I was kindly sent a free copy of When Paris Was Dark by Y.M. Masson in exchange for an honest review.
When Paris Was Dark by Y.M. Masson is a historical fiction account of the life of a young boy named Alain who lives in Paris during the German occupation in World War 2. It is inspired by events from the author’s own life. It was published on April 29th, 2019. I gave it three stars on Goodreads.
A couple Sundays ago, my husband and I went to see Joker. I’ll admit, I hadn’t watched any trailers or really had any interest at all in this movie because I’m not a huge fan of Batman (though he is in DC character I like besides Wonder Woman) and because, well, the Joker is a bit overrated anymore. However, I wasn’t against seeing this film. My husband had heard nothing but great things from our friend so we went to see it!
Full review under the cut for spoilers.
November means that the end of the year is rapidly approaching. I can’t handle how quickly this year has gone, but it’s really been a wonderful year. However, the arrival of a new month means that there are some more new books coming out, and November seems to be jam packed full of them.
I don’t know what it is about me, but it seems like lately I have developed a fear of finishing series. I want to finish these series because I have loved them so so much, but I get scared when it comes to the ending and put off reading it even though the books grace my shelves with their presence. I’ve decided in November that I am going to try and make myself wrap up some series I’ve been procrastinating on!
