November was a pretty solid month. With Thanksgiving break I had lots of time to read and relax which I really needed. I tackled a bunch of series that I’d been meaning to read forever. So I’m feeling pretty accomplished about right now.
3 🌟 A Cuban’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow by Laura Taylor Namey
The amount of food in this book made me so hungry.
4 🌟 Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
I am so mad at myself. I accidentally spoiled it for myself before I read it. But it’s ok, because I still really liked the book.
4 🌟 Rules for Being A Girl by Candance Bushnell and Katie Contugno
A reread that I absolutely love.
Superhero books aren’t really in my wheelhouse, but I heard good things about it so I decided to give it a whirl. The villain’s perspective was 10/10
Eh… didn’t like it as much as the first book, but it was fine
Not the epic final installment I was hoping for
2🌟 The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
Sorry, I don’t see the hype.
3🌟 The Wicked King by Holly Black
The ending though—
3 🌟 The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black
Betrayal and more lies on repeat
4🌟 Here the Whole Time by Vitor Martins, Larissa Helena (Translator)
The voice in this book was amazing and hilarious
3🌟 Late To The Party
An ode to teendom
1🌟 Pretty Funny For a Girl
2🌟 Rent A Boyfriend by Gloria Chao
The writing style just wasn’t for me
3.5🌟 Her Royal Highness by Rachel Hawkins
We do loved royalty and boarding schools
4🌟 Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas
I liked this way better than ACOTAR
3.5🌟 Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco
Kind of called the murderer pretty early on
4.5🌟 Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco
The second book got SO MUCH BETTER
2 🌟 Escaping from Houdini
Why? Whyyyyy? WHYYY??
4🌟 How the King of Elfhame Learned To Hate Stories by Holly Black
This is my formal request to have illustrations in all books
4 🌟 To Kill A Kingdom by Alexandra Christo
Little mermaid retelling. With pirates. It was glorious.
4 🌟 Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
