Okay so I know we’re already halfway through December and this post is late, but here goes… I started off November pretty strongly, already feeling motivated after choosing my Halloween Reads which I knew would run over into the beginning of the month. From that point on I was fairly consistent with my reading, reaching seven books overall!
I’m super chuffed with this and have already read more books this year so far than I have for the last four years I have been tracking them on Goodreads (and 49 books above my 2019 goals). So, let’s see what I read in November 2019.
One of my Halloween Reads and my first book by this author. This book took some… turns, shall we say. Pretty Girls has to be the most shocking and goriest book I have ever read. It definitely has the thriller box checked! It was truly a wild ride and despite being fairly long I just had to keep reading to see what was going to happen. If you fancy giving this a read, definitely check out some more reviews and the trigger warnings. 4/5
I picked this up on Kindle Unlimited, not really knowing what to expect. Essentially this is just a short smutty story about a girl and her older step-brother who is basically controlling and watches her at all times on cameras he had installed in her room? This fell very flat for me and I didn’t actually rate this book.
This was my first foray into K. A. Tucker’s work, an author I’d seen receive a lot of high praise. I really enjoyed the dual timeline in this second chance romance and felt that it worked brilliantly, enabling us to watch the characters grow and develop alongside one another. I can’t wait to read more books by this author! 4/5
*SCREAMS* Ahh, what can I say about this. The Queen of Nothing was one of my most anticipated reads of 2019 and it did not disappoint. I was screaming and furiously messaging in the group chat with my friends who were also reading this heartbreaker of a book. I raced through it in a matter of hours and I really need more from this world. #teamjudeandcardanforever 5/5
I picked this up on Kindle Unlimited after hearing Chandler raving about the story, citing it as her favourite book ever! While I didn’t love it quite as much as Chandler did, I did enjoy the story. A new adult romance leaning towards slightly ‘problematic’ with brooding characters and lots of self discovery, it made an interesting read and I found it to be very thought provoking. 3.5/5
Elle is the author of one of my favourite book series, Off Campus, but I only recently came across her backlist of books and decided to give them a go. Claimed is the first book in her Outlaws series. It was much raunchier than I anticipated, featuring polyamory and explicit smut from page one. The plot was enjoyable but it didn’t match let alone beat my love for Off Campus. I am intrigued to continue with the rest of her books though! 3/5
Having loved Brigid’s Cursebreaker series, and the standalone Call It What You Want, I was so happy to find this ebook on my library app. Told through dual perspectives, this book had me hooked. It was full of love and emotion but dealt with some truly difficult subjects so this is another book I was suggest you check out the trigger warnings for. I raced through it, staying up far later than I should have done just to devour more of the story. I highly recommend! 4.5/5
There we have all the books I read in November! We’re currently 15 days into December and I have only finished one book so far, so looks like I’m not going to be as successful as last month. But, who knows, maybe I can squeeze in a new favourite book before the end of the year?
