November was a much better reading month for me than the other past few months. I still only read a total of 4 books, all of them re reads as well, but that is double what I read in October so yay me! Hopefully December will be even better, but for now here are the books I managed to read in the month of November.
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
I realized that while I have religiously re read all of Cassandra Clare’s other books, I have never re read The Infernal Devices trilogy which is insane! So I re read the first book and forgot how much I enjoyed this time period in London and the characters. Clockwork Angel follows Tessa Gray, who after the death of her aunt sails to London to visit her brother, only to be kidnapped by two sisters who call themselves the “Dark Sisters”. Eventually she is saved by a young man who claims to be part of an ancient race of humans and angels called “Shadowhunters”, and she is tossed into their crazy, upside down world which she turns out to be more a part of then she originally thought. This Shadowhunter world that Cassandra Clare has created is so interesting and complex and I adore every book that she comes out with that is set in it, including this trilogy!
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, P.S. I Still Love You, and Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han
Early in the month of November, I had been in the mood for something fun and upbeat because the days were getting darker and school was really hard. Basically I was looking for an escape, so I decided to pick up and re read one of my favourite books, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. This book follows a girl named Lara Jean who keeps love letters she has written to boys safe and hidden in a hatbox given to her by her mother, but one day those letters are mysteriously sent out and everything she has written in those love letters suddenly becomes reality rather than imaginary. The other two books in this series are just as quirky and fluffy as the first one, and I cannot express how much I recommend this series! Also, the movie has been filmed and will be coming out sometime in the 2018 and I absolutely cannot wait!
Those are all the books I read in the month of November, and I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Reading/Writing Update!
Okay so let’s start off with some good news…I read 2 books this week! I decided I needed a break from fantasy and decided to pick up and re read To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. This is one of my favourite books, and favourite trilogies, and I picked it up because I was really in need of reading a light hearted and fluffy novel. I started it on Wednesday and since then have already finished the first two books. Now I am re reading the third and final installment and I haven’t actually re read this one yet. This will be the first re read which makes me excited because I forget what happens exactly. Anyways, I love these books and Jenny Han’s writing so I know that this was the right choice. Hopefully I will finish Always and Forever, Lara Jean today and after that I am not entirely sure what I will pick up next…but we will see!
Now for NaNoWriMo…so I am at about 18,000 words and I will sadly not be continuing with it. It has been so hard for me to not find time to write, but find the motivation to write because just after writing a few hundred words, I would feel drained. I decided it would be best for me not to continue on with NaNoWriMo, because I also do not feel like my story is “novel ready”. I need to let it mull around in my head for a bit before I write it down on paper, and honestly, I have no idea when that will be. However, I am still writing. I am still writing short stories, and even some essays which I haven’t done much for my own enjoyment. Anyways, I hope that all of your NaNoWriMo journeys are going well but if not, don’t worry because you are not alone!
That is all for my reading and writing update and I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Writing Goals for
October is coming to an end so I thought I would update all of you on where my reading is at the moment. August and September were much slower reading months for me but now I am finally getting back into the swing of things and I couldn’t be happier! While November and the following months are going to be much more hectic, I am hoping to keep up this reading pace.
At the moment, I am about a hundred pages off of finish P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han which is fantastic by the way. The first book, To All the Boys I Loved Before follows Laura Jean, a girl who writes love letters to every boy she has ever loved, but when they all get sent out she couldn’t be more mortified. I love contemporaries and this duology is just so fun and fast paced that I find myself finishing them in one day. I am planning on finishing this book later today and then finally reading The Last Star by Rick Yancy. I am so excited to read the finale to The 5th Wave trilogy just because it is such a great series. I have absolutely no idea how everything is going to work itself out but I hope it has the good, strong ending that it deserves! This book is also quite a short read so I am planning on finishing it in the next couple of days.
That’s all for my reading update and don’t forget to comment what you are currently reading and your thoughts on it! Thanks 🙂
