What I Read in November:
This Is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone – 5 STARS
This book was amazing and so uniquely told, I loved it. The main focus of the book is on two characters from opposing sides of a time war as they strike up a correspondence with each other that leads to something deeper and as each letter is passed back and forth you really feel the deep connection between these characters. I’d highly recommend reading it.
LIFEL1K3 (LifeLike book 1) by Jay Kristoff – 4 STARS
I liked LIFEL1K3 and thought it was a good book with an interesting story. It did kind of take me a while to warm up to the characters but the story was fast paced with a lot of action and intriguing scenes.
Kill the Queen (Crown of Shards book 1) by Jennifer Estep – 3 STARS
I liked this book as I was reading but it didn’t leave much of a lasting impression on me. It was an enjoyable fantasy read that does keep you interested in the story but I did find myself not caring much for the characters as I read but still it was a fun book.
The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller – 3 STARS
This is a tricky book to talk about because I lot of people have loved this book and I was looking forward to reading it but I don’t know, maybe it was the hype, but I felt disappointed by it. This is a really well written book but I just didn’t love it and I didn’t get as fully into the story as I hoped but I was interested to see what happened to the main characters.
Spiders in the Grove (In the Company of Killers book 7) by J.A. Redmerski – 4 STARS
The books in this series are so fast to read, I just fly through them. In the Company of Killers is such an exciting series with very unique characters and interesting plot twists and this one was the same, I really enjoyed it and I’m excited for the next in the series.
Relic (The Relic book 1) by Bronwyn Eley – 3 STARS
Relic is a slow paced YA fantasy. I was intrigued by the first chapter and I was interested in the overall story but I thought some of the reasoning’s regarding the job of Kaylan as the shadow to be a bit confusing at times. I also thought all the characters who grew to be friends with Kaylan were very selfish and they didn’t seem to care at all about her which made me dislike them but I still thought the overall story was intriguing.

I thought November was a good reading month because I finally picked up some books that have been on my tbr for a while now. I finished Black Sails and I’m so surprised at how underrated this show is, I don’t think I actually heard about this series until earlier this year and it’s been over for two years. The writing is amazing and the acting really brought the characters to life, I’m sad the show is over. GOT7 came back in November with ‘You Calling My Name’ and I loved this song and mv, the whole album is great and I loved ‘Crash & Burn’ too.
