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.
My November reading really took a tumble. I played a lot of the new Pokemon game, so I only finished 8 books! I’ve reviewed two of them on the blog already:
Just Like Home, Sarah Gailey; and
The Bodyguard, Katherine Center.
One book, Cover Story by Susan Rigetti, will likely get its own review on the blog shortly.
Here are my thoughts on the rest!
The Castle on Sunset: Life, Death, Love, Art, and Scandal at Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont, Shawn Levy (owned) – 3⭐
This book club pick was most interesting to me when delving into Old Hollywood stories and more modern stories. And it was nice to read some non-fiction for a change!
The Writing Retreat, Julia Bartz (ARC) – 4⭐
This thriller is not out until next February but I was so eager to read it that I couldn’t wait! I’ll have a full review closer to release date, but I loved this book!
The Printed Letter Bookshop, Katherine Reay (owned) – 3⭐
This took me forever to get through! The premise was intriguing and I liked the characters but the book was so slow and I lost interest several times. It didn’t really pick up for me until the last few chapters.
The Murders of Molly Southbourne, Tade Thompson (owned) – 4⭐
This was a really quick, engrossing read! It’s novella length and I finished it in one sitting. It teases out some answers and kept me engaged the whole time, and then I bought the other two books in the series so I can learn more!
Disorientation, Elaine Hsieh Chou (library) – 3.5⭐
I had a tough time with this book, taking a long time to finish. I really liked the writing but I wasn’t always engaged and at times the satire either went over my head or missed the mark for me.
