Hey everyone! Can you believe it’s time for another wrap-up already? Where did November go?! I’m so excited that it’s December though, I love this time of year seeing everyone’s favourites of the year! You can expect mine soon, by the way 😉
November was one of my slowest reading months this year, mainly because my brain decided to just check out halfway through the month and wouldn’t let me pick up a book. I’ve got a couple of reads on the go that I’ve been working through for weeks and it’s giving me anxiety. Hopefully I can get them finished soon!
But without further ado, here’s what I read in November!
Violet by S. J. I. Holliday
I was offered this one to review after reading The Lingering last year. And I’m pleased to say I enjoyed this one even more! It’s about two women who meet randomly while travelling and one of them is not who she seems… It makes for a very entertaining read!
Through The Wall by Caroline Corcoran
Another thriller about two women – which is possibly why I didn’t enjoy this one as much as I could have? It felt a bit dull after the craziness of Violet! But I appreciated the exploration of society’s expectations of women.
Wonderland: An Anthology of Stories inspired by Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland edited by Marie O’Regan & Paul Kane
This anthology was quite a mixed bag but I enjoyed it overall! My favourite story was Laura Mauro’s Japanese version of Alice, The Night Parade.
Books from my TBR
We Are Lost and Found by Helene Dunbar
This was the book that broke my brain. And my heart. And every other bit of me. But I truly loved it. I’ve been genuinely struggling to write my review because I just can’t form coherent sentences. But I hope to have it posted soon!
Dead Voices by Katherine Arden
Small Spaces was one of my favourite books of 2018 so I was very excited about this sequel. While I didn’t love it quite as much, it was still a fantastic story and it was lovely to get more of Coco’s perspective this time around. I’m so happy there are going to be Spring and Summer instalments in this series!
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
Do I even need to explain this? November is Scorpio season. I listened to the audiobook this time round and, while the voices didn’t quite match what I imagined in my head, loved the story yet again.
I had such high hopes for non-fiction November but thanks to the aforementioned brain mush, I didn’t pick anything up. I’ve got my eye on a couple to read soon though.
