The last full month of this fall semester was super busy, so I’m happy to say that I read 7 books in November! I found myself extra-motivated to read this month because overall, I really enjoyed everything that I picked up. I loved being able to read during the week of Thanksgiving, and I can’t wait to devour as many books as possible over winter break. I still have to make my way through final papers and exams, but I’m hoping to fit in plenty of reading while I study– I may or may have brought back one or two too many books from home, oops!
Turtles All the Way Down by John Green | 5/5 Stars
A Short History of the Girl Next Door| 5/5 Stars
The Light We Lost by Jill Santopolo | 4/5 Stars
Another Brooklyn by Jacqueline Woodson | 4/5 Stars
In Jacqueline Woodson’s Another Brooklyn , after running into a long-ago friend, August’s mind transports herself back growing up in 1970s Brooklyn. The book is written in Woodson’s signature prose and is perfect for reading a book in one sitting. I really enjoyed the book’s flow and how August’s story came together in the end.
Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo | 4.25/5 Stars
The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella | 4.5/5 Stars
Over Thanksgiving Break, I craved a book that I wouldn’t want to put down and could fly through, and a Sophie Kinsella book was the perfect answer. I’ll have a review for The Undomestic Goddess up next week!
Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe by Jenny Colgan| 5/5 Stars
Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe was my least expected read of the month, but my favorite read of November! I didn’t plan on picking it up until my winter break, but I couldn’t putt off a British contemporary about baking any longer! My review will be up on the blog within the next two weeks.
I hope to read some festive books in December in honor of Christmas– I am so in love with my holiday-themed Fangirl Fury logo on my homepage – and I plan on doing some 2017 wrap-up posts throughout the month!
