November Wrap Up and Mini Reviews

Hey guys! Here I bring you my November Wrap Up! I managed to read seven books this month which I’m quite happy about. I managed to read these books as well as start a new job, so I think I have done okay. 

So, here are the books I read in November:

1. A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab.

I really, really enjoyed this book. I think this is a really good first book which sets up the foundations for a good trilogy. I really liked the main characters, and their relationship was fun to read about. I will be continuing on with this trilogy, and I can’t wait to visit this world again. 

2. Wicked Like A Wildfire by Lana Popović

I found this book okay. I loved the characters, however I didn’t really feel interested in the mystery part of this book. However, I did enjoy how the story ended, and if it ends up being a series I do think I’ll continue with it. 

3. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo


I have finally read a Laini Taylor book! I loved it so much. I hate the Darkling with a passion but I love Mal so much. I am planning on starting Siege and a Storm tonight, and I think I am going to end up reading them one after the other, and then going on to the Six of Crows duology straight afterwards. I just really really enjoyed this book and I can’t wait to read more! 

4. Turtles All The Way Down by John Green


I have already written a review on this book, but cutting it short I think this book was absolutely fantastic. The portrayal of mental health was spot on, the plot was spot on and the characters were spot on. How fabulous. 

5. Daughter of The Burning City by Amanda Foody


I am surprised to say I really enjoyed this book!i didn’t really think I was going to like it, but I was proven wrong. I really liked the whole setting of the book and how magical each and every individual character is. It’s definitely a quick starter, and keeps you reading until the late hours! 

6. The Name of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss


I can’t believe I finally finished this beast of a book. Granted, it took me literally just under a month but I really enjoyed it. Despite the size, it was such an easy and enjoyable read. I have just purchased the next book in this series and I cannot wait to read more. 

7. The Sun and Her Flowers – Rupi Kaur


I never rate books this low. And I rarely ever give books bad reviews. But I can honestly say that this was such a disappointment for me. I loved Rupi Kaur’s first poetry book, so I was super excited for this one. It just didn’t live up to my expectations, I found myself getting bored, not being motivated and half the time falling asleep during it. Like I said, this was such a disappointing read for me and I was hoping to like it just as much as Kaur’s other work. 

That is all! Overall I’ve had a rather amazing reading month. My favourite book of the month was hands down Turtles All The Way Down by John Green. The book was insanely good. 
What was your favourite book of the month? 

Happy reading! 📖
