So here’s the thing, this has been the year I’ve read the most books. And I think, maybe, perhaps, I got a little burned out. November hit and I could not muster the energy to read. I’d tell myself…tomorrow. But the next day would come and all I really wanted to do was watch tv.
I don’t ever feel like anyone should be forced to read; I wouldn’t do that to others so I couldn’t do it to myself. Therefore, I didn’t read my first book until Thanksgiving. No, I’m not kidding. And as a result, this is a short list.
November: (3 books)
- Renegades – Marissa Meyer^
- Shacking Up – Helena Hunting^
- Hooking Up – Helena Hunting^
And that’s it! Can you even believe it?
Renegades is a superhero fantasy novel. I enjoyed it, but it was a bit slow. I felt like I was waiting the whole book for it to get going. But apparently there’s another coming, so maybe all that setup will pay off.
Next was my first foray into Helena Hunting. Shacking Up will be forever known as the tarantula book. Like I had to put it down and stop reading because it freaked me out. I did eventually pick it up again, but I had to skip ahead to the end of the chapter because of the giant fucking spider. *shudder*
Hooking Up is the follow up to that book, which is only mildly irritating because they weren’t listed as a series, though they clearly are, and I started this one first. It was super highly rated, and it started out fantastic, but sort of fizzled thereafter. Neither would be books I’d recommend.
And November was complete. I finished the month with 222 books. One more month to go, then our yearly wrap. You know how much I enjoy that post!
See you in the new year!
