I hope everyone had a fabulous month of November! I know I had midterms during what seemed like every week and I had some health problems, but I was still able to have a fun-filled November. What’s even better is that I got back into my audiobook obsession! I managed to finish 13 books this month because of audiobooks. If you didn’t know, audiobooks are the cure to slow reading. So without further ado, let’s talk about the books I read this past month!
I started off listening to the Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined and loved it. My heart has a very special place for Twilight, okay? Plus the audio was great. Then I listened to After the End, which I’ve been meaning to read for a long time. The story was pretty good, but not good enough to continue (although it is only a duology… maybe I’ll have to reconsider?) Next up is Carry On! This one took me awhile to read because it’s such a fat book, but I overall really loved it. Not my favorite book from Rowell, but c’mon guys, it’s Harry Potter fanfic! And then I listened to Counting by 7s, which was just okay – this one probably would have been more enjoyable if I read it in book format.
Next up is The Young Elites and The Rose Society on audio, and both were great! Not spectacular, but Lu’s writing is always very compelling and easy to read. I also listened to A Thousand Pieces of You and its sequel, Ten Thousand Skies Above You. The first was a reread, and it packed the same emotional punch, but unfortunately, the sequel was just decent.
Then I couldn’t help but pick up a 2016 release, When We Collided, and it blew me out of the water. I already posted a review for it, so you can read my full thoughts now! Two words: plain wonderful. My next audiobook was Binge, and it was hilarious because obviously – Tyler Oakley! Then I read a non-YA: The Bell Jar. I was pleasantly surprised by this one because I really enjoyed it! Not the happiest read out there but still great.
The last two books of the month were Legend which I listened to on audio, and I think I like it better than The Young Elites. I also picked up my 2016 ARC of The Forbidden Wish. So enjoyable, you guys! I devoured this one. It’s lush & magical, and ALADDIN.
Whew, I feel like I read a lot more than I expected in November! *pats self on back* What did you all read? Have you read any of the books I read this month? What did you think?
