I’ve been reading so much, but I don’t always feel like writing a full review for everything. 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.
I thought October was a slow reading month for me, but November was even slower! I only read seven books, and I blame most of the lack of reading on my huge increase in Animal Crossing playtime since the update and DLC came out!
Of the seven books I read last month, I’ve only reviewed two on the blog:
The Archive of the Forgotten, A.J. Hackwith; and
All Of Us Villains, Amanda Foody and Christine Lynn Herman.
Here are my thoughts on the rest:
Outlawed, Anna North (library) – 3⭐
I’d heard such wonderful things about this book, but while the setting and premise drew me in, I thought it was just ok.
The Dead Girls Club, Damien Angelica Walters (owned) – 3⭐
This is another book that I had been excited to pick up but that in the end I thought was just ok.
ExtraOrdinary, V.E. Schwab and Enid Balám (ill.) (owned) – 5⭐
I was very excited for this graphic novel set in the world of one of my favourite books, Vicious, telling a new story intertwined with Victor and Eli’s but about new characters. I loved the story and I loved the art, and I’m really hoping there will be more!
Warm Up, V.E. Schwab (owned) – 5⭐
This is another Vicious-adjacent story. It’s a short story about an EO named David, and I just love getting a deeper look into this world.
The Sober Girl Society Handbook, Millie Gooch (owned) – 4⭐
I bought this on Kobo on a whim while I had been thinking about cutting out alcohol over the holidays, and it was a pretty interesting, informative read that got me thinking. The author is British so the information was fairly UK-centric, but I liked her writing voice and now I’m doing a ‘dry December’.
Now that we’re in the last month of 2021, I’m going to work on prioritizing reading some books I’ve had on my radar for a while and just haven’t gotten to. And I’m going to try and balance out my video game time with my reading!
I’m also looking forward to putting together my end-of-year posts about my favourite reads of the year.
