It kind of feels like November just started, but here we are at the end. I know I sound like a broken record here, but it’s crazy how fast this year flew by. It’s hard to believe that December is almost here! November was a pretty bad month for me as far as reading goes. It was almost non-existent. I actually did not even listen to any audiobooks that I actually finished all the way through! I was in this huge reading slump and that really affected my reading.
Let’s get into the recap! You can find a full list of these books and the other books I read this year over here. All will be linked to Goodreads below and I will also link to individual blog posts for them if I did a review.
DNF (did not finish) Books:
These are the books I started, but did not end up finishing throughout the month of November.
Seeing Redd by Frank Beddor
I got half way through the audiobook, but then decided to not finish it. My mind was just not into it at the time and I had no idea what was going on. I do plan to pick it up again, but I’ll probably read it myself versus doing audiobook again.
Physically Read Books:
These are the books that I read by myself (aka not audio) throughout the month of November.
Fablehaven by Brandon Mull – 3.5 OUT OF 5 STARS – REVIEW.
I borrowed this one from my sister, because she loved the series a lot. I also seen the cover floating around on Goodreads as well. It was enjoyable, but it didn’t blow me away. Check out my review for more!
Butter by Erin Jade Lange – 4 OUT OF 5 STARS – REVIEW.
I enjoyed Butter a lot and even though at times it was hard to read, it was a really well written book. I was rooting for Butter the entire time and I really enjoyed his character. Check out my review for more!
Scarlet by Marissa Meyer – 3 OUT OF 5 STARS
I liked this book, but I didn’t like it better than Cinder. I really enjoyed the new characters Wolf & Thorne, but I was not sold on Scarlet. I could not connect with her. I found it a little difficult to get through her scenes in the book versus the scenes with Cinder. It took me almost the entire month just to finish it, because I was bored the majority of the time.
These are the books that I hope to read in the month of December.
I am not very good at sticking with TBR lists when I make them. I usually just grab what I feel like reading and see what happens. In November I was hoping to finish the Lunar Chronicles series, but with this reading slump I was in, I sadly didn’t not get to do that. Looks like they will be working their way into my December TBR then!
Some others on my TBR aside from the Lunar Chronicles:
The Novl sent me an ARC of Wolf by Wolf, so I want to read it. I know the book is already out there in the world though, but I still would like to read the ARC and put up a review since they were kind of enough to send it to me. They also sent me Not If I See You First, so I want to read that as well and get a review up. Firsts is released the first week of January, so I want to get that read in December and get my review up. If I have any time left over to read more then I will hopefully read Carry On, which I am dying to read!
I am being pretty optimistic here, to be honest. I do really want to read all of these books, so hopefully I can make it happen. I still feel kind of slumpish, which is why I didn’t (and won’t) be finishing Cress this month. I started it on Tuesday, but only read 60 pages since then. I am going to try not to be hard on myself if I don’t read all of these books though. I always feel guilty if I don’t read and that takes the fun out of it!
What did you read in November? What do you plan to read in December? Have you read any of these? Let me know and link me to your recaps and TBRs!
I hope you have a great day! 🙂
