What I read this month: November

Oh sweet November - I look forward to you every single year, but I am SO happy whenever Nano month is done and I won. And I get excited for December - a month in which I have loads of time to read.

First, my November wrap up: 9 books, which is an exciting amount of books. No clue how I did that with Nano.


Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas

Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks

Antigone by Sophocles

Antigone by Jean Anouilh



The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas

Can this book count as four? Because at 1200 pages it is about four YA books. I read this for my book club and read it in ONE DAY. It was hell and I was delusional at the end of it, but I hate not having read the book for my book club. Yay me! 

What did I think about this book? I actually have no clue. I read it so quickly that I missed half of it, but I must say that the Count must have one hell of a make-up artist to be able to change personas so quickly!


Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

I discussed this book in a review here. Though I didn't really enjoy the book, I absolutely adore the cover. Just look at that picture! It deserves a cover award.


Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

I love book suggestions from other book lovers, so when I saw Colleen Hoover all over my Tumblr dash I knew I had to read it. The review for this is still coming and I haven't finished it yet, because I'm not sure how I feel about it. I read it really quickly, put it down and said "wtf is this for cliché book? I HATE IT!", but now, a few days after finishing it, I'm finding that I can't get the main characters out of my mind. It is not the most original story, but somehow it grips you anyway.


Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - J.K. Rowling

I mean, does this need any explanation? Who doesn't know these books? This one is SO MUCH BETTER than The Chamber of Secrets. Sirius. Sirius. Sirius.

The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart


My favorite read of the month! So good! You need to check it out. 

And then there were two e-books:

The Paragraph Ranch by Kay Ellington 

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard


What did you read this month? What was your favorite book? 

What I read in September

Round up of all the books I've read this month


1. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

Really loved this book, because it was so different. It was on my TBR-list for months, but I really wanted it finished before I saw the movie (which was also AMAZING) and I'm so glad I did. I think you can only really enjoy the movie or the book, since it's all about those plot twists. My review can be found here.

2. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Does this need any explanation? ADORED IT. I can't wait to start reading Lola and the Boy Next Door. Just need to recover from these feels first.

3. Insurgent by Veronica Roth

The beginning of this book was a bit slow for me, but it definitely saved itself with the plot twists. Not one for Fantasy YA, but these books are good.

4. Allegiant by Veronica Roth

Same as above, though the narration was a major spoiler. Wish she kept it all Trish until she had to change it.

5. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

All explained here. AMAZING

6. Solitaire by Alice Oseman

Really liked it when I read it, but must admit that I can't really remember why. Did give it 4 stars though

7. Audrey Hepburn and Breakfast at Tiffany's by Sam Wasson

Something totally different. I didn't like it at all. Too much speculation about what everyone was thinking. I wish it was based on more facts - not my cup of tea.

8. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe

This book was so hyped by everyone that I still haven't decided how I feel about it. Can't write a review about it, because I'm unsure whether I liked it or whether it really annoyed me.

9. Spider of the Well by Tim Reed

A horror story. Usually not my thing, but Tim Reed has buckets of potential.

10. On the Road by Jack Kerouac

Who doesn't love this book?

Pretty good reading month. Had some amazing books and some that weren't so great. Excited for what October will bring! What did you guys read?
