November Wrap-up

Hello, bookworms!!
We’ve now got into December… how fast time flies. Can you believe it?
Did you have a great reading month?

As you might already know, I’ve been having a really bad cold since last Thursday and my noses are still stuffed up and have a slight sore throat which makes me feel even more under the weather than I actually am. 

I started off my November intending to read Classic books or books with a Classic vibe throughout the month, but I must admit I ran out of steam later last month. You’ll see what books I actually read in a minute, but I must concede defeat last month 😦

Now, it’s time for my November wrap-up and let me share with you the books that I read in the month of November!

Bookcount-wise, I didn’t do very well last month. Against 18 books that I read in October, I only read 11 books. To make it even worse, about half of the books are on the short side 😦   
I know the reason why I didn’t do very good; there were a lot of distractions last month… knitting, crocheting, and YouTube videos…(I freakin’ love watching Gordon Ramsay’s channels. My recent obsession might be a bit old, but Hotel Hell series.)

Clockwiser
A Little Princess
Little Lord Fauntleroy
Reunion
The Traveling Cat Chronicles
Tea, Tiramisu, and Tough Guys
Jane Doe
Every Fifteen Minutes

I basically enjoyed all the books that I read last month. However, if I were to name my favorites, my gut-instinct goes for these four books and  my absolute favorite is a toss-up between Little Lord Fauntleroy and The Night Before Christmas. Both books simply made me so happy and content but it is interesting how differently those two books struck a chord with me. The former gave me the feeling like basking in the bright sunshine streaming through a big window on a cold, wintry day while the latter made me feel as though I was standing by the window looking outside as the snow silently falling from the sky. You know what I mean?

Like I mentioned,  I was pretty happy with all the books that I read last month. Some are really short thus I didn’t see I could make valid points upon writing reviews for them, but it’s not that I didn’t enjoy reading them. Once again, I am content with the books that I read in November. 

I’ve been participating in a year-long reading challenge called, The Ultimate Reading Challenge and the challenge for October was  “main character is a musician or actor.”

Okay, a big confession is in order; I had my mind set on reading The Phantom of Opera for November challenge, but I didn’t have enough time to get down to it nor was I in the mood for reading any more classic books.
Which makes another failure for the challenge (three months in a row for God’s sake), but as I read a lot of horror books in October that I wouldn’t normally pick up, so I’ll count them in for my October challenge. 

There you have it; this is my November wrap-up. Although I didn’t get to read as many as I had intended to, but I am glad that I read 144 books as of today! 6 more to go for my Goodreads Reading Challenge. Wish me luck!

How about you? How was your November? Comment below and let me know! 

Thanks so much for reading as always, and I’ll see you in my next post 🙂

  1. Don’t stress. I find I have to be really in the mood to approach and get into a classic. I wanted to read three this year. But the third book I picked just wasn’t appealing to me. So I switched it out for a shorter, lighter classic instead!
    And 11 is pretty impressive!
    I hope you’ve recovered or are feeling better. I’ve had two colds this month so I feel your pain! Lol
