Month in Review: November

This month's wrap up will be very short and condensed, as I totally forgot that I needed to post a month in review and now am scrambling to write it December 1st morning. Bare with me, it's exam season. *sighs*

What I Read:

Moxie by: Jennifer Mathieu: 3.5/5 stars
History is All You Left Me by: Adam Silvera: 5/5 stars
Paradise Lost by: John Milton: 1/5 stars
If There's No Tomorrow by: Jennifer Armentrout: 2/5 stars
Gulliver's Travels by: Johnathan Swift: 4/5 stars
Fifteen Words by: Monika Jephcott-Thomas: 4/5 stars
Wonder Woman: Warbringer by: Leigh Bardugo: 4/5 stars
The Girl from Everywhere by: Heidi Heilig: 4/5 stars
The Rape of the Lock by: Alexander Pope: 2/5 stars
Theogony/Works and Days by: Hesiod: 5/5 stars

Please don't mind all the classics in this list, it was all for English class. I would never pick these up on my own.

Favourite book: History is All You Left Me!! Adam Silvera is an amazing author and makes me feel all the feels.

What I Blogged:

I just published a (semi-controversial) post about Moxie by: Jennifer Mathieu! I was really scared at not sounding like a crappy person while still voicing my opinions. Please check it out and let me know what you think!

Life Stuff:

Exams, that's about it. I am stressed, cramming, and have no idea what my mark is in any of my classes so that's fun. But after that, December brings Christmas and my 18th birthday, so that's something fun!

How was your November?

  1. Keep calm Em, you're doing great! *Sends hugs* :)

  2. Wow, looks like you had an awesome reading month. Absolute best of luck with your exams, just try to remember it's not the end of the world (easier said than done, I know).

    1. Haha yes, definitely agree! Thanks Brooklyn!

  3. You seem to have fared quite well in the reading department despite the cramming and what not, Em! Good luck with the exams- I'm rooting for you <3

    1. Thanks Ruzaika! That’s the one thing I love about English class. It always adds more books to my reading list!

  4. That is a lot of reading in one month! I wish I could get to that many books. Truth be told, I probably wouldn't leave my bed if I didn't have to work - I would read all day, every day. Wouldn't we all? :)

  5. It seems like you had quite the busy month! And you read ten books too, wow! I barely make time to pleasure read during the school year-- homework and extracurriculars tend to swallow my time. It's awesome to see another student succeeding with it, though! I hope your exams are going/went well and you have a restful weekend!

    1. Thank you Claire! Pleasure reading is what keeps me going during exam season. After the studying is done for the day, I absolutely have to read in the evening :)

  6. Ahh good luck with your exams! I'll have mine in January, right after the holidays, so I'll have my christmas being haunted by the upcoming exams xD Anyways, I'm always curious about Paradise Lost so may I ask what makes you dislike it? Have an amazing December!

    1. Ooh good luck!! I’m glad to get mine over with before the holidays so I have nothing to worry about for two weeks haha! In terms of Paradise Lost, I had to read it for school, so that alone was enough to make me dislike it, and I just found it horrible to understand. The language was so heavy and just went way over my head. I also found it incredibly boring as books dealing with religion just aren’t my cup of tea. Thanks for stopping by, Tasya! I
