November Wrap-Up

November is done and it’s time to get ready for the festive season! Who else is excited for Christmas? I’m so excited to see my family soon because it has been way too long and I’m sure everyone can relate. My Tree is going up tomorrow and I can’t wait to make my flat all Christmasy!

I read some great books in November and a couple of them have even made it onto my list of favourite books of 2020 which I will be posting sometime this month!

Thank you NetGalley and the author for a E-arc in exchange for an honest review. I loved this book! It was extremely cute and ha a very interesting story that showed the importance of family and friends as well as tackling issues most of us have to face daily. It’s a great read for Christmas and I highly recommend if you love romance novels!

Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

Rebecca very quickly became one of my favourite books of 2020. I heard a lot of mixed opinions before reading it but I loved the story, characters, all the twist and turns. It really kept me hooked! This was our second book for the @_TheWriteReads buddy read and I’m so excited to start the next.

The Cousins by Karen M. McManus

If you havn’t read The Cousins or any other books written by Karen M.McManus, then you need to! If you like to read suspenseful thrillers of course. I don’t think I can fault this book and I read through it ectremely quick,I didn’t want to put it down. Look out for my review and stop on the blog tour on December 13th!

World War Z by Max Brooks

I have nearly finished this book! How long has it taken me to read this, I don’t know. I am really enjoying git and love the style of writing. It’s nothing like I’ve read before. If you like unique zombie/apocalyptic novels this is a great read.

The Beekeeper of Aleppo

I am still working my way through this book. I really want to sit down and read it when I’m not rushed off my feet and can actually take everything in becasue I keep hearing such good things about it. Hopefully I can get this read in the next month!

Amari and the Night Brothers by B.B. Alston

I have just started this today and I don’t think is going to take me very long at all! I absolutely love it so far and can’t wait to read the rest of it later today! The blog tour for Amari and the Night Brothers is running from December 7th so look out for my review sometime this month!

The Devil and the Dark Water by Stuart Turton

Our buddy read for the month is this hefty book! IT came in the post yesterday and I can’t believe how big it is. I really need a new bookcase already. I’ve heard really good things about The Devil and the Dark water and the illustrations of the cover pages are beautiful!

A Sparrow Alone by Mim Eichmann

I am loving blog tours at the moment, and we have another one in December/January! I saw this book, and I thought it looked exciting and straight away I wanted to read it. It’s a Historical Fiction, and I have really been liking this genre the more I read them. The author is a very inspiring woman and I can’t wait to read this novel of hers. I’ll update you all when I know the schedule for the blog tour.

That wraps up my November Wrap-Up! I read some amazing book last month and I hope that carries on this month! Let me know what you’re planning to read!

You read some great books last month, Ellie! I’m excited to hear what you think about The Devil and the Dark Water. Have a lovely December

Great wrap up, Ellie Mai! I agree that World War Z is totally different from other books that I’ve read. Rob was the one who told me to read it and he warned me beforehand of the way it was told but I still enjoyed it!
