November, over all was a pretty good month for reading. And I got through a lot of books really quickly, it just wasn’t the best month for reviews for some reason…sorry.
So, like I was saying I read a lot of books so here’s my wrap up for the lovely month of November 2015.
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard ~ I bought this book on Halloween, and finished it I think November 3rd or 4th I can’t remember go check out my review for this book, it’s one of my all time favorites, and I can’t wait for it’s sequel (Glass Sword) that comes out in May, because it’s kind of a subtle cliff hanger, where it doesn’t just kill you (Uh-hem Rick Riordan) But you still just have to know what happens because let me tell you the plot twist in this book blew me away and I literally dropped my book and starting screaming. Normally, I can see plot twists coming, and I was even warned but that one just snuck up on me like BAM!
A Thousand Nights by E.K Johnston ~ This book was also amazing. It didn’t make me wail and scream like Red Queen but it grabbed my attention. If you’re very into books that are in the desert in a time about a couple thousand years ago, and you loved the classic, A Thousand and One Arabian Nights. Then, you’ll fall in love with this book.
Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige ~ This book I thought was such a great concept. I mean it’s about Dorothy and how she’s returned to Oz, is sucking out all of the magic, and basically turned into hooker Dorothy. Yeah, you heard me correctly our Dorothy, the poster child for innocence is now dressing like a hooker, lovely. It’s also about Amy Gumm, the other girl from Kansas who’s come to rid Oz of Dorothy’s graces. You can also read my review for this book on this very site.
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell ~ Okay, this book is one I strongly recommend. A: It’s in dual POV which I love with all of my heart B: It’s set in the late 80s which is amazing considering I forgot what time period it was in 95% of the time when I was reading it and C: it’s a Rainbow Rowell book and every book I’ve ever read by her has just gone above and beyond my expectations.
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher ~ This book broke me into a million pieces. I realized, our lives depend on other peoples’ lives, in which who’s lives depend on other people and it’s just a huge messy cycle. And I found that extremely easy to get tangled up in. And through out this book I found myself, rooting for Hannah, the main character, even though I knew her ending.
So, that’s my November Wrap-up, nothing severely impressive, but still a lot better than last month’s 3 books.
Sorry guys, I had this written up about a week ago and I thought I had posted it. Oops. But, it’s here now right? Sorry again. ~Blondie
