Monthly Wrap Up

November 2020 Monthly Wrap Up

My weird book slump is persisting and I am finding it almost impossible to read physical books and I am tired of it, I just want to read my books! However ebooks and audiobooks have been live savers and honestly I would not have read most of these if it wasn’t for audiobooks.

So here’s what I read this month:

The Shadow Glass by Rin Chupeco – The conclusion to this amazing trilogy and I am completely in love with the story and characters.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Aladdin: Far From Agrabah by Aisha Saeed – I loved this book and that we get to see so much more of Aladdin and Jasmine’s relationship develop. My review is here

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller – I really enjoyed this book! It was fun and the audiobook was great to listen to!

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The Empire of Gold by S.A. Chakraborty – A reread and I loved it even more this time. My review is here

Rating: 5 out of 5.

A Thousand Questions by Saadia Faruqi – I loved this middle grade story of two young girls finding friendship in the most unlikely of places. My review is here

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Brambles by Intisar Khanani – A short story set before the events of Thorn that gave us a lot of insight into why the main character is the way she is.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Love From A to Z by S.K. Ali – One of my all time favourite books and I buddy reread it with some friends! My review is here

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The Never Tilting World by Rin Chupeco – I reread this so I could read the sequel and I loved it even more this time. Highly recommend the audiobook. My review is here

Rating: 5 out of 5.

A Curse of Gold by Annie Sullivan – I enjoyed the sequel but not as much as the first book.

Rating: 3 out of 5.

A Thief Among the Trees by Sabaa Tahir – I liked this graphic novel giving us a glimpse into a young Elias and Helene.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Daughter of the Siren Queen by Tricia Levenseller – This sequel was fun and I liked seeing Alosa and Riden’s relationship develop.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Run, Rebel by Manjeet Mann – A powerful story written in verse discussing topics that are difficult to discuss but really need to be talked about.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Ever Cursed by Corey Ann Haydu – The concept was really interesting but the actual story felt a bit flat for me.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
