Hi friends! Happy Tuesday and welcome to my wrap up for November! I had a bit of a slow reading month in November. I didn’t read any books, physically, with my eyes for the first half of the month and it took me two weeks to finish one book, again physically. Although, I didn’t manage to get through several audiobooks. Let’s go!
Number of books read: 7
Number of pages read: 308 (not counting audiobooks in this total)
Favorites of the month:
The Bride Test was the first book that I finished for November. I love The Kiss Quotient so I decided that it was only right that I continue on with the series, obviously. Also, this series get so much hype and let me tell you, it’s totally worth it! I think I can speak for us all and say that Chan’s review is pretty spot on and, in my opinion, no one’s review of this book is better.
Atomic Habits I didn’t know I needed this book until I read it. I found this really insightful and it actually lays out practical and attainable ways to build habits. It was exactly what I needed.
Intercepted This was my 100th read book this year and the end of my Goodreads reading goal! I loved everything about this book! This book is so fun and the romance was cute. I’m happy that I accomplished my reading goal on such a high note with a 5 star read!
This was a buddy read and a re-read for me. Yep, still one of my favorite series’ (both in book and TV format).
Didn’t make the favorites list:
Both of these books are true crime novels and while one was pretty good, one just wasn’t. Let’s start with, the good, I’ll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman’s Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer, this book sufficiently creeped me out. It is really good, even though it didn’t make it into my favorites, and if you’re into true crime it is a must read.
Now, the. dare I say, not good, The Innocent Man. I haven’t read any John Grisham books before this and it is, apparently, his first non-fiction book and it just wasn’t for me. It was filled with so much insane amounts of unnecessary detail that I, honestly, was just so bored that I just zoned out while listening to this. Yeah, this was just a miss for me.
All we ever wanted Again, a first read of this author, Emily Giffin. I was sooo excited when I started listening to this and realized that it is set in my hometown of Nashville, Tennessee. Emily tries to tackle a lot of different social issues in this book like racism, privilege and social media. This story felt all to familiar and ultimately it was forgettable. Yeah, I didn’t like it, gave it 2 stars.
That’s my wrap up for November. What were your favorite reads last month?
