Happy December! I am so happy to be jumping into the holiday spirit and do ALL the Christmas-y things and of course, read ALL the books as my finals come to a close. While I’m excited for the winter reason, with the exception of the cold weather, I wanted to reflect on what books I’ve read this fall and some of my favorite blog posts from the past three months.
I read a total of 18 books between September, October, and November and I’m pretty satisfied with that number, considering that I read some of my favorite books of the year and was busy with my university life during this time. I’ll be listing the books below, along with review links if I posted one for that book.
Passing by Nella Larsen | 3/5 Stars
The Girls by Emma Cline | 3/5 Stars
Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys | 2.5/5 Stars
Another Brooklyn by Jacquelyn Woodson |
Meet Me at the Cupcake Café by Jenny Colgan | 5/5 Stars
Blog Post Recap
This fall, I had a few fandom and book related experiences including meeting Jennifer E. Smith, seeing Waitress on Broadway, going to the Harry Potter and Chamber of Secrets symphony show, finding an ARC copy of Ruta Sepetys’s Salt to the Sea and signed copy of Turtles All the Way Down, and casually dressing up as Taylor Swift for Halloween .
In September, I posted reviews of Celeste Ng’s Little Fires Everywhere and Warcross by Marie Lu, two books that I was very fortunate enough to receive and that became two of my favorite books of the year. I also really enjoyed writing my review for I, Eliza Hamilton, another 2017 favorite, because I got to spread even more Eliza and Hamilton love!
Right before I went back to school, I read Liane Moriarty’s Big Little Lies, loved it and soon found myself addicted to its TV adaptation. Big Littles is definitely one of my favorite TV shows of 2017, and I have review for both the TV show and book.
And if you’re still looking to hold on to fall, last month I did the Fall-Themed Q & A, hosted by The Blended Blog. Look out for my Holiday Q & A next week!
Thank you for reading & supporting me here on Fangirl Fury. I wish you a happy holiday season, full of family & friends, Christmas movies, and plenty of books. Happy reading!
