November ’16 Wrap-Up


Okay I seriously cannot deal with how fast the time is flying, I mean November is over already?!  This month I got sucked into the blackhole that is Pretty Little Liars (5 seasons in one month has to be some kind of record) so I’m pretty surprised that I read about 7 books this month.

November Haul

  • Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
  • Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan
  • Magnus Chase and the Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan (currently reading)
  • The Alchemists of Loom by Elise Kova
  • Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
  • The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson (currently reading)

November Reads

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo – ★★★★★

Crooked Kingdom was an epic conclusion to the Six of Crows duology. It was action packed and full of plot twists, there was never a dull moment between those pages. Loved it!

The Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake – ★★★☆☆– Full review here.

This was such a unique story but the fact that it was written in the present tense really blew it for me.

Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan – ★★★★★

At this point I think we’ve established that all Rick Riordans books are an automatic five stars for me. This one was the best in my opinion because I learnt a lot about Norse mythology and it was hella funny.

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins – ★★★☆☆ 

This book was a little dull in my opinion but in all fairness I haven’t read many mysteries so I’ve got no comparisions. Overall it was a good book and like all mysteries/phycological thrillers I was definitely shocked at the end so props for that! (My book-to-movie review here)

Winger by Andrew Smith – ★★★★☆ – full review

Hilarious and heartbreaking, Winger is definitely one I recommend.

Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi – ★★★★★ – full review

I’m not ashamed to say I read a ton of middle grade books but I have to say this one rises above the rest. This such a light whimsical read. Definitely recommend (for all ages)

The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis – ★★★★★ – full review

Society these days casually disregards things like bullying, anger, substance abuse, rape and this book just smacks you in the face and demands your full attention. Just read it.
