It’s time for another book-update. Everyone commented on how many books I read in October. November wasn’t nearly as successful. A lot of shorter books that were easy to read.
House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas
4 stars – I started the month still reading House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas. And I finally finished it! It’s a massive book, and the beginning is really slow and full of characters who have very similar names. But you have to get through that, and the story gets really good! Definitely recommend.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
After reading that massive, complicated book, I needed something simple and familiar. Fangirl is one of my favourite books ever, so I reread it for the seventh time, according to Goodreads. 5 stars, obviously.
Fangirl, the graphic novel
As I was looking at new releases on Goodreads, I stumbled across Fangirl, the graphic novel. Which I did not know existed. I immediately ordered this and read it the same day. Graphic novels are always very quick and easy reads – so count this as half a book? 5 stars.
Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik
2 stars – I only read half of this book, and while it was good, it just wasn’t for me. Fairytale retelling, so if you’re into those, I would still recommend it!
Homebody by Rupi Kaur
I loved the first two poetry collections by Rupi Kaur, and immediately got this one when it came out. Unfortunately, the poems in this one didn’t resonate with me as some of her previous work. They were a lot more personal to her, and I would still definitely recommend them, but they just weren’t for me. 3 stars.
One Day by Samantha Young
3 stars – The next few books I got as part of my Kindle Unlimited free trial. A cute novella that will take you less than two hours to finish!
Maple Sugar Crush by Beth Labonte
3 stars – I read the first book in this series in October, and it was good enough for me to pick up the sequel. Don’t expect more than a cutesy romance with not-very-well-developed characters. A very easy read for during the holiday season.
Outmatched by Kristen Callihan
3 stars – A very trashy romance book where a girl has to hire a fake boyfriend to impress her boss. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Would definitely recommend.
What have you been reading in November? Any recommendations? 🙂
