Monthly Wrap-Up | November 2018

And just like that 2018 is coming to a close. I didn’t read as many books in November as I’d liked to, but I did read a few chunkier ones that were AMAZING!

So onward to December… Tis the time of year where I stress the most about reading since there’s so many books I want to finish before January. So little time so many books.

As usual, I feature my top two books of the month from differing genres. However, this month my two favourite books are both from the same genre. #SorryNotSorry

Best Books of the Month 1


Skyward is one of the best books I’ve read in 2018 and would not hesitate recommending it to anyone. It’s full of action, intrigue, and features a spitfire main character.









The Blinding knife


What an incredible sequel. The Blinding Knife ups the ante for every character while delivering incredible world building and intense action sequences.
Should I heave featured something else here? Probably. But this series is just too good not to share.

everything else 1

Dirty Red is definitely worth the read if you enjoyed The Opportunist. Though it doesn’t offer the same reading experience. Alternatively, it offers keen insight into Leah that you need to fully appreciate what Fisher is trying to accomplish.


Thief is my second favourite book of the series. The Opportunist will always hold a special place in my heart. While Thief doesn’t pack as much of an emotional punch as The Opportunist, it certainly succeeds where Dirty Red failed.
5 star


Feeling the void Firefly left in your heart? Need something to fill it? A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe will definitely help.



Lord of Shadows is easily Cassandra Clare’s best work. The characters, plot, and writing work together to create a book that isn’t easy to walk away from. Queen of Air and Darkness is only ONE DAY away, but the wait feels unbearable. Don’t listen to all the haters Clare, these books are amazing!5 star


My full review for The Luminous Dead is forthcoming. I will say that The Luminous Dead is an atmospheric novel that follows two women as they dive deep into the earth and even deeper into their own psyches.
3 star 


People Kill People is a timely piece of writing that is unrelenting in its fight for gun reform. People Kill People takes readers into the minds of six different teenagers with various reasons for picking up a gun and altering the lives of everyone around them.4star_Fotor


Circe is beautiful read that spans thousands of years of Greek mythology as told through the perspective of a lesser god with the power of witchcraft.4star_Fotor


Have you read any of these? What did you think? what was the best book you read in November?
