I’ve been reading a lot lately, and not always feeling like I want to write a full review for each book read (or sometimes I just don’t have much to say about a book). So I was inspired by Modern Mrs. Darcy’s Quick Lit posts, as well as Hannah at So Obsessed With‘s monthly Quick Lit posts, and decided to do something similar as a way to briefly discuss the books I read in a month but don’t write full reviews for.
My November reading picked up slightly over last month. I finished ten books.
These are the ones I’ve already reviewed here on the blog:
Blacktop Wasteland, S.A. Cosby;
Ducks, Newburyport, Lucy Ellmann; and
The Witches are Coming, Lindy West.
I also read two e-ARCs of books that are not out until 2021, so I won’t be reviewing those until closer to the release date:
A Taste for Love, Jennifer Yen; and
I Love You More Than My Phone, Dante Fabiero.
And here are my thoughts on the rest of my November reads:
White Fox, Sara Faring (owned) – 2.5⭐
This might be a case of me just not being the right reader for this book. I wanted to enjoy this, and the synopsis certainly appealed to me, but I couldn’t get into this at all. I didn’t care for the writing or the screenplay interspersed throughout the book.
The Woods, Vanessa Savage (library) – 3⭐
This was intriguing and kept me guessing most of the way through, but it was also a bit frustrating at times when it felt repetitive (get in a fight, deny memories fighting their way to the surface, run off; talk to someone, get frustrated, yell and run off; etc.). Good but not great.
Ghost Squad, Claribel A. Ortega (library) – 3⭐
This was a quick, cute middle-grade read.
Grown, Tiffany D. Jackson (library) – 4⭐
I started this thinking I would read a couple of chapters and then do something else, but it pulled me in right away and I ended up reading it in a single day. Grown was a gripping, tense read story; recommended.
And Now She’s Gone, Rachel Howzell Hall (e-ARC) – 3⭐
This was a decent PI story that was full of twists and turns, but couldn’t quite pull me in and sustain my interest.
