November Wrap-Up

I definitely did not read as much during November as I did during October. To be fair, I don’t think I could have ever read as much during November as I did during October. I did Nanowrimo during the month of November so I was concentrating on writing (over here on my writing blog), I did Tome Topple Round 5 which is a readathon which focuses on long books and I started work! Fun fact, if you go back to work after not working for a while and you have an annoying commute, it sucks up more of your time than you think.

Favourite Book

Unlike last month, this was easy. Gemina was a great sequel to Illuminae and it made me really excited to read the third book in the series next March. It had the fast-paced plot I saw in Illuminae, the sarcastic characters I loved and a romance I actually thought was cute. This was very similar to Illuminae in terms of the plot building blocks so there were no obvious parallels but everything I loved in Illuminae was in here.

Gemina (The Illuminae Files, #2)

Least Favourite

I actually had a really good reading month in terms of liking the books so there wasn’t a lot of books this month I didn’t like but I would say one which really disappointed me was This Raging Light, mostly because I didn’t like the love interest at all or the romance.

Reading Updates

I did several readathons this month. BorrowathonScallywagathonTome Topple Round 5House Cup Reading Challenge and I finished up the Autumn Bingo as well.

I read two books from my November TBR which is more than I thought I would get through. It was a bonus that I really enjoyed both of them as well.

Despite reading far fewer books than I did last month, I am very pleased with what I did read this month and I hope it continues into December.

Only one month left!
