Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m talking about the books I read in the month of November of 2017! I have one from the month of October which you can read here. Aka the wrap up that I don’t call a wrap up because I don’t want to call it that. I only read six months this month and that really disappoints me. I had NaNoWrimo this month which I won so I didn’t get around to reading a lot but I still tried so. Let’s began!
The Rose & The Dagger by Renee Ahdieh
-B: Could has better and was too slow and only got good at the end
I read the first book in September and I started this in October but I wasn’t able to finish in the month because stuff is happening in my life. I’m finished now. I really enjoyed this book. I enjoyed it more then the first book. It was so good. I thought it was a step up from the first book and I really it liked it. it’s not my favorite book ever but I still I really liked it. I read this on the car ride to State and it kept me entrained. I would recommend this book if you want to read it or you enjoy intense romance books.
Want by Cindy Pon
D: Nothing seem to happen. The characters had a bad attitude or were boring until the end. Story didn’t know what it wanted.
I went into this book with high expectations because I’ve heard great things about Cindy Pon and the cover of the book looks so cool! But again I read this on the ride to State and I wasn’t really entrained. I’m thinking maybe I should give this book another chance but I just didn’t like this book. The timeline was kind of confusing and the characters were really dull. I wish I had liked this book.
The Savage Song by Victoria Schwab
-A: Good story with characters that got better and a slow plot line
I’ve been wanting to read this book for awhile and I was hoping to read it around Halloween but I didn’t get to it until this month and after reading this book I can say that I wish I had read this book sooner because it was so amazing. I loved the character and I loved the story. It was so good and I understand why people love it. I can’t wait to read Our Dark Duet which is the sequel to this book. There were so parts were I would drift away but then I would be pulled back into it. Hopefully I can get to that before the end of the year.
Furthermore and Whichwood by Tahereh Mafi
+B: Had a weird pace and took me a while to like the characters.
I’ve read some of Tahereh Mafi books before I read Shatter Me and that was a little over hyped for me so I couldn’t get through it. I found an arc of Furthermore and Whichwood in my house and I heard everyone talking about Whichwood so I started that one first before getting like a 100 pages into and realizing that maybe I should read Furthermore first. You probably don’t have to read them first because Whichwood is a companion book but I felt like I had too. Because I felt like I could get to know the characters before and understand the world more. I liked both books the same amount. Furthermore took me a little longer to like but because I expected it to be like Whichwood which was kind of dark and mysterious and I liked that. Once I got into Furthermore I did really enjoy it. Both worlds are really interesting and creative to reading about. I liked the writing Whichwood more because it was so creative and weird creepy and I loved it.
Dating You / Hating You by Christina Lauren
+C: A work in progress. Okay writing, not so great characters and story line but pulled through and was readable.
I’ve been wanting to read a Christina Lauren book for awhile and I finally got to this book. Usually I don’t read romance books with Enemies to Lovers stuff because I get really get into them and I usually find the relationships not the best. Also a lot of time the guys are real jerks. I really enjoyed this book the characters with entraining at some points. I mean it wasn’t my favorite book like it was cliche at some points but it did ask about real things like working in the office when you are woman as Evie has a boss who isn’t the best and there are lines that talk about how he isn’t the best when it comes to women. I did enjoy parts of this book but I did think that the prank seemed like something out of a middle school book. It was good like I said I don’t like romance but if you do then I think you should read this book.
I know! This is an all time low for books I’ve read this month. Like I said I had NaNoWrimo which I won! I know I already said that but I’m so happy that I won because I’ve never won before. I’ll make a post about that later but a way this month wasn’t a good month for me as I also moved. So yeah. Things are really crazy right now.
