November Wrap-Up|2019

Top Ten Tuesday-52.png

Hello guys! I hope the month of November was a swell reading month for you all! Sorry for this being a super late post, finals are approaching so I haven’t had much time to do anything else. Last month I read a total of 7 books which I think is around my normal. So, onto all the books I read last month!

The Fountains of Silence

The first book I read for November was The Fountains of Silence by Ruta Sepetys. This was one of my most anticipated reads of the year and I was not disappointed. I really enjoyed the story and the time period it takes place. I loved the two main characters and thought they were well developed, along with all the secondhand characters. If you want to read more of my thoughts just click here for my book review. I gave this 5/5 stars.

The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey

I picked up the second book in the Mysterious Benedict Society series, The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey by Trenton Lee Stuart. I didn’t;t enjoy the plot of this one as much as I did the first one. But I did like how the dynamics between the characters were further developed as well as tested. I gave this 4/5 stars.

Divine Empire

I quickly switched genres as I went from middle grade to some romance. Divine Empire by Brooke Ellis is the third book in the Empire series. I really did not think I was going to like this book considering I did not like the main character Thomas due to actions he did in the pervious two books. However as the story went on I found myself caring for him, just a little bit! I gave this book 3/5 stars.

Throw like a Girl

I picked up Throw like a Girl by Sarah Henning and quickly read it. It is such an easy contemporary read. This is a sports contemporary book but fear not if you do not understand anything about sports like I do, you will not be lost. I was a little worried when football practice and games were happening that I would be lost since I don’t watch football, but the author does a good job of describing it so I didn’t feel lost. I liked the main character a lot and I liked the determination she has when it comes to football. If you want to read more of my thoughts you can check out my review here. I gave this 4/5 stars.

Skyward

Skyward by Brandon Sanderson was a book I never intended to read. But it was the book for my library’s book club so I ended up reading. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this because the last Sanderson book I read, I wasn’t a huge fan of. But boy oh boy did I end up LOVING this book! I flew through this book and just never wanted to put it down! I have a full review here if you want to check it out! I gave this 5/5 stars.

She’s Powerful Trouble

I started She’s Powerful Trouble by Taylor Hartley earlier in the year but I stopped reading it because there were other books on my phone that I needed to read. But I finally decided to finish it and it was good! I liked the main characters and their romance. I do wish their was more magic involved because it just felt like a contemporary book with a hint of magic. Check out my full review here for my full thoughts. I gave this 4/5 stars.

Scythe

Scythe by Neal Shusterman was the last book I finished in November. The pacing was slow for me and I kept hoping it was going to pick up but it didn’t. Much to my surprise though, it didn’t interfere with me enjoying the book. It did take me awhile to finish but I overall enjoyed it. I liked Citra more than Rowan as a character but I liked Rowans development more. You can check out my full review here for my full thoughts. I gave this 4/5 stars.

So overall, it wasn’t a bad reading month for me! Mostly 4 star reads which is nice, nothing really amazing but nothing bad. I would say this was a very Goldilock month.
