Another month has come and gone, and it’s time to enter the last month of the year (wow, already?!) – but before we do, I wanted to share with you guys how my November reading went! I know it’s technically the last day of the month right now, but I’m writing this with the assumption that I won’t complete any other books today. ?

Aww, you didn’t like Feel Me Fall!! I actually quite enjoyed that one! I cannot wait to get to Dread Nation!! It sounds so good!!
No, it wasn’t for me, unfortunately. 🙁 Dread Nation, however, was INCREDIBLE. I cannot recommend that book highly enough. <3
I have an arc so I will redirect be reading it!
I’d really like to get to Milk& Honey soon…possibly because her latest poetry book calls to me more but I’d like to have read this one first lol. Dread Nation may just be in my December TBR, I keep hearing such AMAZING wonderful things that I’m pretty hyped up. Curious on Girl Made of Stars, will swing by for your review 🙂 Happy reading in December <3!
I hope you’re able to! It honestly was incredible. Her views on life, and feminism, and sexuality, and being a woman of color – all amazing. And she has such a way of penning down her emotions. I was totally captivated. I hope you get the chance to read Dread Nation soon! It was kind of life-changing for me, like one of those books that just impacted me so heavily that, while it didn’t give me any new views necessarily, it definitely lit a fire under some of my current views on things. Same goes for Girl Made of Stars – such an important read.
Happy reading, lovely! ?
Wow, I am very shocked about the DNF for “Feel Me Fall”. I reviewed it myself and I actually enjoyed it a lot. It is one of those books though that I feel you have to get farther into to actually enjoy.The beginning of the book initially made me a little hesitant to continue, but once I got further in is when I started to enjoy what was happening in the story. Also if you had gotten to the ending you would have been screaming for a sequel to know what happens! It just shows how we each have very unique experiences with books.
I’m glad you enjoyed it, but it definitely wasn’t for me. Like you said, it just shows how we each interpret things differently! 🙂
wow, you had five 5star books? that’s amazing!!! i love when that happens 😀
Right?! I mean, I was a little bummed that my reading numbers were a little lower than my normal in November, but then I realized how many of them were 5-star reads, and I couldn’t be mad!
exactly! it’s not about quantity it’s about quality! ?
Oh you read The Princess Saves Herself in This One. I want to read it because Amanda, but I’m not one for poetry. 🙂
