November Wrap Up

Top Ten Tuesday(29).jpg

I’m at the point where I’m just hoping the new year will re-motivate me for blogging and reading. I mean look at me! Posting my wrap-up on the 11th! I never wait this long! I just don’t feel like doing anything and it’s awful! I’ve been complaining about this slump since August and here I am….December and still complaining. This wrap up doesn’t even feel like a wrap up because I just haven’t really done as much as I normally do! Oh well, I’ve tried not to be too hard on myself for it because I could use a break but if I can still post sometimes and do a small break I feel it’ll help.

Hopefully 2019 will get me my groove back!

November Wrap-Up

Top Ten Tuesday(9).jpg

November was a pretty decent month for me concerning both reading and blogging, at least I haven’t burned myself out yet! I actually got through quite a few books too which I was pretty proud of myself for.

I actually read more books than graphic novels too which is also pretty good for me when I have a good reading month. I actually enjoyed pretty much all of these too the only one I didn’t really like was “The Devils You Know” which was very meh and just not very good at all. I’d have to say my favorite reads of the month were “Monstress: The Blood” and “The Empress” because they blew me away completely, they were that good!

Books I Reviewed This Month: 8 (Wow, I Don’t Know If This Is Good or Bad)

Well I can’t really say how productive I was reading this month since I only read 8 books. Now to some of you that may mean I’m slow and to others it might be a lot, I guess it depends.

For the most part I loved every book I read which is pretty dang good if you think about it. I’ll leave links to my reviews so you can check them out and hopefully add to your TBR’s!

 

A Monster Calls

“A Monster Calls” by Patrick Ness

5/5

This book was amazing, plain and simple. Everything about it was perfect, it’s definitely a tear-jerker though so be prepared!

The Sleeper and the Spindle

“The Sleeper & The Spindle” by Neil Gaiman

2.5/5

Slightly disappointing since it was so short and not exactly what I was expecting. I figured this would be a lesbian retelling but it wasn’t at all, plus the story took a turn I didn’t enjoy either. Still great to read if you love Gaiman and the illustrations are gorgeous.

The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking, #1)

“The Knife of Never Letting Go” (Chaos Walking #1) by Patrick Ness

5/5

My second Ness book ever and just as good as “A Monster Calls” if not better. This book is seriously….just perfect and I can’t gush about it enough. You’ll have to read my review to truely understand all of my feels. I want to take this book and shove it into your hands and make you read it!

Coraline

“Coraline” by Neil Gaiman

4/5

I think it’s safe to say that Gaiman never truly lets me down, this is one magical and entertaining book. It’s a great book to start with if you’re just getting into Gaiman’s works.

Worlds of Ink and Shadow

“Worlds of Ink and Shadow” by Lena Coakley

4/5

It’s all about the Brontes, reading, and imagination. It’s definitely a very creative and fun book and one that we can all relate to as readers and book lovers I think.

The Grownup

“The Grownup” by Gillian Flynn

4/5

Gillian Flynn never disappoints me and this was no exception. If you’re a fan of hers, like me, I recommend reading this short story. It’s as twisted and gritty as any of her other works.

These Shallow Graves

“These Shallow Graves” by Jennifer Donnelly

2/5

Not my favorite book, pretty disappointing for me. It drug on way too much and was more romance focused than I would have liked. This is pretty much a case of “It’s me not you”.

Alice

“Alice” (Alice #1) by Christina Henry

5/5

One of my new all time favorite books, I love Alice in Wonderland and I love retellings. This one is about as dark as you can get though, still worth checking out if you’re a fan. Such a great book though, I could sing and dance all day about my love for this book!
