This wrap up is a tad late, but I’m still enthusiastic about the fact that I read 9 books last month! How did that happen?! Either I’ve been slacking off on the constant piles of homework I have to finish or my time management skills have been improving. Let’s hope it’s the latter.
Books I’ve read:
Crown Of Midnight (Throne Of Glass #2) by Sarah J. Maas – improved writing + furthered world building + badass Celaena (finally!!!) = solid 4 stars
Turtles All The Way Down by John Green – great mental illness rep, but unfortunately written side characters + a formulaic plot = unsurprising 2.5 stars
City Of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments #2) by Cassandra Clare – the NOSTALGIA + kickass characters + kickass demon fighting + kickass world building = delighted 4 stars
Gem & Dixie by Sara Zarr – interesting themes, flat character writing + overall bland composition = disappointed 2.5 stars
Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman – unique mental illness exploration + thought-provoking, but too abstract and unfocused for me = inevitable 2.25 stars
Alex And Eliza (Aliza & Eliza #1) by Melissa de la Cruz – 18th century goodness + witty banter + too-cute-for-its-own-good romance = pleasantly surprised 3.75 stars
This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith – mostly predictable characters + unresolved plot points + forced romance = unhappy 2.5 stars
Just One Day by Gayle Forman – self discovery journey + relatable themes + sophisticated writing = emotionally affected 3.75 stars
Black Bird Of The Gallows by Meg Kassel – strong heroine + dark and atmospheric vibe, but a frustrating instalove-y romance = a very CONFLICTED 3 stars that is prone to change
The only other eventful thing (and relevant) that happened in November other than reading, was finishing season 2 of Daredevil. It’s kind of sad when you think about it, but I’m about to start Jessica Jones now and I’m hyped. Plus, speaking of Marvel, did y’all peep that Infinity War trailer???
Thanks for viewing this, peeps. Leave me a comment below with your thoughts 🙂
