That Sweet Sweet Time of the Year Where It’s Suitable to Freak Out on How Little Goals I Actually Achieved, AKA Nov ’17 Wrap-Up

Well, well. Look who’s here with three pieces of bad news ๐Ÿ˜‚ Me, obviously. Who else is there except the imaginary friend you had who’s stalking you since your childhood biding its time to take revenge because it was woefully neglected ?
Okay moving on to a small update featuring said three pieces of bad news:
๐Ÿ˜ฒ I am terribly late on wrapping up
๐Ÿ˜‚ I am currently being torn apart by Gemina
๐Ÿ˜ I have somehow gotten myself a hairline fracture in my right hand. It’s not bad, and as long as I can hold a book all is well !

Anyhow, let’s get started !

๐Ÿณ Warcross by Marie Lu

My favorite part: Worldbuilding, and characters ! a vivid and colorful world, mixed with fast-paced action and a memorable but unexpected turn of events. Kept me at the edge of my seat.


๐ŸŽธ The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

my favorite part: Relatability ! Keeps you rooting for the characters, and, if you’re an introvert, terribly relating to the MC. I don’t read much contemporary YA, but if it’s supposed to be like this, I think I’d like to read more books like this !
Favorite quote:

Thereโ€™s a lump in my throat. Thatโ€™s another thing about me. If someone says Iโ€™m sad, or asks me whatโ€™s wrong, or tells me not to cry, itโ€™s like my body hears: NOW CRY. Like a command, even if Iโ€™m not actually sad. But maybe there are always tiny sad pieces inside me, waiting to be recognized and named. Maybe itโ€™s like that for everyone.


An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

Aw, man this is in tight competition with Warcross on the title of Favorite November Read.
Favorite part: ALL THE GOOD QUOTES. ALL THE PHILOSOPHY. ALL THE WORLDBUILDING. AASFFZNCPANFPW.
Simply.
Read.
It.
Plz

” But isnโ€™t absurdity part of being human? We arenโ€™t ageless creatures who watch centuries pass from afar. Our worlds are small, our lives are short, and we can only bleed a little before we fall.”


City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

This one plunges me head first into the Shadowhunter universe, and I am SO glad to finally catch up to the 86 KILOS OF HYPE all around it.
My favorite part: Characters. Very character-driven book. The worldbuilding is also a big part, but I mostly got attached to the characters. I’ll be putting up my thoughts along with Azia @ The Uncharted Word, as we did a buddy read of it ! My first in fact ๐Ÿ˜€ *proud little kid look with puffed chest and all* ๐Ÿ˜‚


How was your November ? Any expectations for the upcoming month ? What are the goals you’re hoping to achieve before 2018 comes around ?

  1. Amazing choices, here! I have them all on my TBR and can’t wait to try them, especially after reading your post ๐Ÿ™‚ I was hoping they would be absolutely amazing before but now I’m certain!
    I don’t have too many specific goals for the new year to come but I’m hoping maybe I’ll get to read awesome books and really step up my blogging/social media game (read: have more time for them!).
    So sorry to hear about your hand, though! Hope you have a speedy recovery ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you ๐Ÿ˜ I’d love to know what you thought of them after you read them ! I’m hoping to read a little faster next year so I can find ideas and publish more reviews and therefore, get to bloghop a bit better and boost my posting frequency !
