November Wrap Up

November was a slow month for me reading wise. I had some really chunky books to read and I struggled to get all the books on my TBR pile read by the end of the month. I think I was a little too ambitious with my TBR choices for November. The books I did manage to read though were all enjoyable and I think I have found some new authors to follow now and read more of their books.

Circe by Madeline Miller

This is my first time reading a Madeline Miller book and I have to say that I went in with some very high expectations because there has been so much praise for both this book and The Song of Achilles. On a whole I really did enjoy reading Circe, I found it to be really interesting and I loved the writing. I did my attention dipping a little towards the end but other than that I did like this book.

Harley Quinn Mad Love by Paul Dini & Pat Cadigan

Being a fan on the Batman movies and recently the DC origins books I was excited to read this book because Harley Quinn is one of my favourite characters from the DC universe. I learnt quite a few new things from reading this book and I hope more books are released like this in the future about other characters from the Batman Series.

Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

When I was offered the chance to read this book a few weeks before the general release I jumped at the chance because it sounded amazing. I haven’t read many Brandon Sanderson books even though I really enjoyed reading The Final Empire. Skyward is a sci-fi book which I don’t usually read but I was utterly obsessed with this book until the very end. I loved everything about it, the writing, the story and the characters.

The Dark Vault by V. E. Schwab

V. E. Schwab is one of my favourite authors and I have been wanting to read both The Archived and The Unbound for a while and when I saw that a bind up of both the books I Β thought I would wait and read both books together. It did take me a while to get into this book which is not normally the case for V. E. Schwab’s books but after a few chapters I sailed through the book and ended up really enjoying it.

Jack of Hearts (and other parts) by L. C. Rosen

I saw a lot of buzz around this book all over the book community and was so happy when I got a chance to read this book a few months early. Jack of Hearts (and other parts) has been described as Love, Simon but with more sex, and I have to agree with this, but it also has a lot more to it. I really enjoyed how this story was written and how it doesn’t hold back on anything, its so raw and real.

The Pagan Night and The Iron Hound by Tim Akers

I have been wanting to read a good fantasy series for a while now and I thought The Hallowed War series would be the perfect series. I have only read the first two book in the series so far and I liked both books. The Pagan Night set up the world and the characters really well and made me want to conintue on with the series, and The Iron Hound continued to grow the world and develop the characters.

Book of the Month

It was a difficult choice to pick just one book this month for my Book of the Month because all the books I read have some really strong arguments for being my favourite read of the month, but in the end I decided to go with Jack of Hearts (and other parts) by L. C. Rosen. I decided to go with this book because it is nothing like I have read before. It’s so honest, real and funny that it’s hard not to have a connection with Jack. I thought the mystery side of the story was really interesting and intriguing, but the fact that the story doesn’t say away from hard topics makes it my favourite read of the month.
