September/October/November Wrap-up:

Hello,

It’s been a while since I have posted so I’m catching up on posts and books that I have read. September, October, and November were extremely busy months for me as I was in the middle of the fall semester and I didn’t get out of my reading slump until the end of October. In September  I didn’t really start any books but I did finish a couple of really good ones. November was a much better month of reading as I was able to catch up on a few books and there were a couple of books that completely surprised me.

 

Amount of books read for September: 3 

September Wrap-up (1)

  1. Atlantis and other Places: Stories of Alternate History by Harry Turtledove – This one was not my favorite book but it was alright.  I enjoyed some of the stories in it, but there were others that I didn’t enjoy (3 stars).
  2. The rose & the dagger (#2) by Renee Ahdieh – I enjoyed this one a lot better. It still took me a while to get finished but it was interesting (4 stars).
  3. Obsidio (#3)  by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff – I’m not sure how I feel about this one. I think illuminae was my favorite in this trilogy, but this one is probably my second favorite out of the three. I really enjoyed it but thought it was kind of predictable. I am glad that it ended the way it did though (4 stars).

Books read in October: 0 

 

Amount of books read for November: 9 

November was a good month for reading as I had finally gotten out of my reading slump and was finally able to catch up on some books that I had gotten behind on.

November Wrap-up

1. Kingdom of ash (#7) by Sarah J. Maas – This was my most anticipated series of the year and I decided to preorder it three days before it came out. It was really good and I think I finished it in about a week.

2. Paper and fire (#2) by Rachel Caine – This series is quickly becoming one of my favorites. I love all of the characters and there was a lot more action in this one

3. If there’s no tomorrow by Jennifer L. Armentrout –  I  was so surprised by how much I enjoyed this one. I enjoyed it so much I actually read it in an entire afternoon (5 stars).

4. Harry Potter and the cursed child (Parts 1 & 2 #8) by J.K. Rowling; John Tiffany and Jack Thorne – I never thought I would say that I didn’t like a Harry Potter novel but this one was just meh for me. There were a couple of times where the time skips confused me a little bit, but it was okay. (3 stars).

5. This mortal coil (#1)by Emily Suvada – This one turned out to be different than I thought it would be and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it (4 stars).

 

November wrap-up part 2

6. Code name Komiko (#1) by Naomi Paul – This was another book that I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I was looking for something different since I had picked up quite a few action novels before and needed something a little lighter. While this one is a mystery it was still a fast read and I enjoyed all of the characters as well (4 stars).

7. Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince (#6) by J.K. Rowling – I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve read this series and it was still just as good as the first .I had reread the series earlier this year, but took a break after the 5th one and then I watched Fantastic Beasts: the crimes of Grindelwald and it made me want to reread the last two books in this series.

8. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows (#7) by J.K. Rowling – I picked this one up right after I finished the sixth book and it took about 3 or 4 days to finish.

9. Ash and quill (#3) by Rachel Caine -This series is definitely my favorite series right now and I am currently waiting to get the next book though it looks like it may be a while before I do get it. I would definitely  recommend this series (5 stars).

 

So this is what I read from September to November. I’ll have my December list up hopefully by the end of tonight or tomorrow evening.
