The Sunday Post_ Month in Review

Happy Sunday all! I cannot believe that November will be over tomorrow. It just doesn’t seem possible! So I managed to double my average reading number this month and read 20 books 😀 6 of those were for the HoHoHo Read-a-Thon, the rest were almost all review books. Now I just need to sit down and write reviews! How was your November?

Favorite November Read

I read some fantastic books this month, ranking 7 of them 5 ‘s! So it was REALLY hard to pick only one book as my favorite for this month. But here it is:

The Damned by Laura Thalassa was a stunning and brilliant conclusion to the Unearthly series. I’ve been on the edge of my seat for a couple of years now waiting for it’s conclusion and it most certainly didn’t disappoint. Gabrielle and Andre and Asiri 😀 Three of my all-time favorite characters in one book. It just doesn’t get better than that!

Favorite November Quote

All real lives hold controversy, trials, mistakes, and regrets. What matters is what you do next.

  1. WOW, you got some very nice-looking books this week, Lillian! And wow for seven 5-star reads in November. I’ve had some really good ones as well, and it just makes me so happy when most of the books I pick up are winners 🙂
    I’ll try to have time for Merry Mondays, but I can’t promise anything. Busy with school work these days.
    Have a fantastic week ahead and happy reading.

  2. I’m glad you’ve got some family time booked in for Christmas, but it sounds like your time until then will be busy. Well done on the November reading. I can’t believe how quickly the time has flown!

  3. Wow you got a lot of books read this month! November sure flew by. I also got Saven: Deception this week, it will be my next read! I’ve beta read it, but I am looking forward to read it again now to just enjoy the story. I’ve read Switch a long time ago, can’t remember a lot about it anymore, I think I enjoyed it. I hope you’ll enjoy your new books and have a great week! I am looking forward to your Merry Monday posts!
