Hello everyone! How are you today?
It’s that time again for another reading wrap-up! The second to last one for this year which is crazy to think about.
For this month I was following the readathon Readathin Bingo! A readathon that had a mixture of reading prompts as well as self-care tasks/activities.
I may not have gotten a bingo but I did manage to get a few ticked off. I think I got a nice mixture of tasks/activities as well as reading prompts.
Hooked by Emily McIntire
A dark, explicit and violent twist on the classic Peter Pan. Focuses on James “Hook” Barrie who is seeking revenge for the death of his family. Their death by the hands of Peter. He seeks to take justice into his hands against Peter but his plans get complicated when running into his daughter, Wendy. I read this one on kindle and it does get full on like it’s a dark romance so it’s not a cutesy romance (just wanna make that clear).
Anne of Green Gables (Manga adaptation by Stacy King, Crystal S. Chan)
Growing up I have loved the story of Anne of Green Gables. It’s definitely a comfort story for me. I have read a few of the manga classics that have been published (Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, etc) and as soon as I saw that they had done an Anne of Green Gables version I had to buy it. This adaptation was cute and followed the story version of the 1985 movie series (which I also absolutely adore!).
Hood Feminism by Mikki Kendall
I’ve been slowly working my way through this book. I listened to the audiobook which I recommend as it is narrated by Mikki Kendall herself and it is a powerful read. This book is more than just the usual feminism that I hear about. It covered so many topics like poverty, hunger, individuality, representation, crime, etc to name a few. If you are interested in feminism and learning about it this is definitely a book to add to your list.
A Night Like This by Julia Quinn
This was another fun, quick historical romance. I always love picking up these books when I don’t know what I’m in the mood to read. I read this on kindle and think I gave it a three star. I enjoyed it but it wasn’t mind-blowing. I got what I wanted and what I expected which I’m happy about.
Crazy Stupid Bromance by Lyssa Kay Adams
This was the third book in the Bromance Book Club series. This book followed the best friends to lovers trope. Just like the other books in this series it was very cute and covered topics such as family (especially revolved around a father figure) and a survivors life after sexual assault as Alexis owns a café and opens her doors to help women come together and regain their life. It also has funny moments with the boys that always make me smile and laugh.
I’m looking forward to reading the next book.
The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding (a Hercule Poirot short story) by Agatha Christie
This filled my prompt for an early Christmas story. The audiobook became available through my library app which was good timing. This is a quick Agatha Christie mini mystery set during the holiday period. It’s only 33 pages so it’s a nice book to either read or listen to while doing odd jobs. This was nice to listen to as I was doing a jigsaw puzzle.
Death by Laura Thalassa
This is the final book in the Four Horseman series and it’s another one I enjoyed. I finished this on the first of December so I’ll say I just squeezed this one in haha. As it’s the last book I won’t write too much about it but it’s set in an apocalyptic world where all Death had to do is walk through the towns and everyone dies. However, that’s changed when Lazarus is the only one Death cannot kill as she always comes back life. She is determined to stop Death down. Life vs Death.
This was a fun reading month I felt like I had a good variety of books.
I hope everyone’s November went well!
Until next time…
