November Wrap Up

Am I the only one that is NOT READY for December? I feel like I’m being punk’d. Like the hidden cameras are going to come out and someone’s going to say “Haha! We tricked you – it’s really still July!” Ahhhh…. wishful thinking.

So it’s a wrap on November and I’m late again getting this together 😆 but I did manage to read FOUR NonFiction November books! I typically read a total of ZERO nonfiction books in any given month – so clearly this is a huge win for me!

⁣⁣
13 books… my top 2 standout favorites were:
⁣⁣
✨ Anyone by Charles Soule
✨ Hollow Kingdom by Kira Jane Buxton

Did I read any of your favorites? See anything on your TBR here?⁣⁣⁣

39310890._SX98_Bedside Manners by Heather Frimmer

A lovely story that gets you right in all the good feels. Read my full review here.

 

 


42839296._SX98_Hollow Kingdom by Kira Jane Buxton

THIS BOOK. I just can’t. I want everyone to read it and I want at least 4 sequels please! This is such a unique and fun story. The main character is a crow. His name is Shit Turd and he’s going to save the world with his buddy Dennis the dog, after humanity falls to a zombie apocalypse. It is SO FUN.


45897976._SX98_Is There Still Sex in the City by Candace Bushnell

This was a fun one! Candace (of Sex in the City fame) can write anything and I’ll read it (or watch it!) It’s definitely one for a certain age group…. like mine (40ish) BUT I think anyone will enjoy this look at dating later in life. It’s funny and poignant and a really enjoyable listen. Highly recommend the audiobook!


48069765._SX98_White Knight by John H. Cunningham

Another fun Buck Reilly Adventure! Check out my full review here!

 

 


44285798._SX98_We Met in December by Rosie Curtis

An adorable seasonal read that follows 2 people in love that just can’t get it together for a whole year. Read my full review here!

 


43263670._SX98_Do You Mind If I Cancel by Gary Janetti

I read this based on a lot of reviews that promise “if you like David Sedaris, check out this guy – you’ll love him!” David Sedaris is my hands-down favorite. This guy doesn’t even come close. I felt a lot of anger from his writing and didn’t think it was all that funny. This was a fail for me.


38362811._SX98_The Witches are Coming by Lindy West

Speaking of anger… I went into this one totally blind. No idea who Lindy West is. Still not sure. She can be very funny – I appreciated her humor. But also – felt a bit like she was yelling at me a lot. This was just OK for me.

 


43069290._SX98_Unbelievable by T. Christian Miller and Ken Armstrong

HEARTBREAKING. I had heard about this special on Netflix and wasn’t sure if I really wanted to go there. Long story short – it’s about rape. And how many women are not believed when they make the claim of being assaulted. The statistics are HORRIBLE. The stories are AWFUL. But I’m so glad I read it. And I’m looking forward to the Netflix special. A very important one.


43884209._SX98_Get a Life Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert

Not my typical read but I actually really enjoyed it! The audio was silly and snarky and the banter between Chloe and Red was so fun! I think I need the steamy books to be silly and fun to enjoy them. Too much mush and I’m turned off. Feels like I’m reading something I shouldn’t be. But snark and sass and humor?? Count me in!


43970371._SX98_Holly Banks Full of Angst by Julie Valerie

Such a fun read. Like Stepford Wives meets Class Mom. These PTA moms are bonkers and Holly gets thrown right in when her daughter starts kindergarten and it is SO SILLY. I really enjoyed it.

 


44438154._SX98_Plastic by Frank Strasser

This cover is super creepy but this book is so fantastic! Check out my full review here!

 

 


44013666._SX98_Anyone by Charles Soule

Hands down one of my top 5 of the year. I never read sci fi or anything like this but when I was selected for Mystery Book Club on Instagram, I dove in and I never wanted to get out. The story is about “flashing” into other peoples bodies. It’s unique and fantastic and unlike anything I’ve ever read. A MUST read for sure!


43822820._SX98_The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell

This was a total creepfest and a fun one! A family is living large in a mansion when suddenly another family moves in they’ve given all their stuff away. And then half of them are dead. 25 years later answers come out that I never expected. It’s creepy and culty and was SO fun to read. The ending was a bit abrupt for my taste but the reading experience throughout was a good one!


 

And just like that December and all it’s craziness creeps in and who knows what this month will bring! We’ll see in January I guess! Don’t blink!!

Have wonderful holidays and wonderful reads this month my friends!
