November 2018 Wrap-Up

Hi everybody, Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!

In October I read a whopping eight books, but in November I only read one and half of two other books.

I was really busy this month with school and work, so I barely had anytime to read. I am also waiting for some ARCs and a huge Book Outlet package from Black Friday (haul should be up hopefully sometime in the next few weeks… if the package ever arrives…). Therefore, I wasn’t really motivated to read a ton in my free time. I know that December will be just as if not more busy than this month, but I have my winter break at the end of this month for two and a half weeks, so I plan on getting a ton of reading done then (more on that in a few weeks)!

The only full book I read this month was “Girls of Paper and Fire” by Natasha Ngan. I received this book from Hachette Book Group Canada, and posted my review of it a few weeks ago! You can read my review here. In short, I really enjoyed it and am very excited for the next book in the series!

(Sorry for the quick pic… I just took it now in school HAHA!)

I started “A Darker Shade of Magic” by V.E. Schwab a few days ago after I bought the complete box set from my new Chapters Indigo store, and I’m enjoying it quite a bit so far. The beginning was slow, but it is finally picking up. I am about half way thru the book as of 10:00AM on November 30th, so I will see how far I can get by the end of the day… maybe I’ll finish it!

Like I mentioned last month, I am reading 1984 by George Orwell with a group for a school project. I am more than half way thru and I am really enjoying it so far! The world keeps getting more interesting, and I’m really loving all of the characters. By January I should be finished the whole thing, so I still have a while to process all of the details.


Sadly, that is all I read this month. I should have a lot more books on my wrap-up for December, not only because I have some extra much needed free time, but also because I will have a lot of new books and ARCs to immerse myself in!

How many books did you guys read this month? What was your favourite book of the month? Did you write a wrap-up and post it on your blog? Let me know in the comments, I love talking to all of you!

Good Night Book Owls!

  1. Great wrap-up! I think a darker shade of magic was enjoyable but to me, it definitely didn’t live up to its expectations and I really don’t see where the hype is coming from, lol. I do found it enjoyable enough to want to read the second book and see where the story is going and how it’ll improve. Girl of Paper & Fire is very high up on my wishlist but I’m also scared to read it since it’s also already so hyped haha.

    • The story is actually picking up now, so I am excited to see where it continues! I totally understand what you said about the hype for GOP&F, but I totally understand the hype because it was a very good read!

  2. I have been hearing so much about Girls of Paper and Fire and I guess I should get to it as well.
