GIVE ME ALL THE TV & CHRISTMAS: November 2018 Wrap Up

November, you were filled with school, books, film, AND all the holiday season prep. I am a firm believer that the earlier you start celebrating Christmas, the happier you’ll be (and hopefully that happiness will translate to reading motivation!)

I read 6 books in November, which I’m really happy about because I mostly LOVED everything that I read. I also hit 100 books for the year- live love Goodreads for telling me this (I’m currently at 105). I think one of my New Year “resolutions” is going to be keeping better track of what I read on my own—I tried and failed to do so in 2018, despite some pretty amazing Excel sheets.

What I Read in November 2017

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!

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!
