Monthly Wrap-Up | November 2021

Hello Lovely Readers!

Here is another monthly wrap-up! Not sure how it is December already…

November was a very busy month! My husband has been going into work earlier and now working on weekends. My daughter is still going strong with school as well as my husband. I can tell school is coming to an end for the semester! I will be happy for a break though, but will still continue to do some things with my daughter.

I didn’t read as much as I wanted to, but that’s okay. I also didn’t have any 5 stars, although one came close! Hopefully December will be filled with all of the 5 stars to end the year right, haha.

This month I managed to read 12 books and 4 audiobooks.

16 books in total!


My favorite book of the month would be Year of the Reaper by Makiia Lucier! It was a 4.5 star read and it will definitely be added to my shelf since I at first borrowed it from the library.

My least favorite was my dnfed books. I just couldn’t get into them.

  1. I picked up The New Girl and put it down after the first chapter and haven’t had the motivation to pick it up again lol. 😫 Castles in Their Bones is one I haven’t seen – definitely will add that to my TBR. Awesome month of reading, I hope you get some good ones in December!

  2. Oh no, I just got The Ivory Key arc and I’ve been looking forward to it so I’m sad to see it didn’t work for you. Also, interesting to see you DNF’d Gilded! I’ve seen so many glowing reviews for it over the past two months and I’ve been so keen to read it. I haven’t had a proper look yet but I don’t think I have a five-star read in November either lol… I hope you have a great December, Joanna! ❤️

    1. The ivory Key felt very flat to me. Gilded just wasn’t the right fit, lol. It reads very fairytale like and the story just didn’t intrigue me. I hope you enjoy both though! Haha, we need 5 star reads!
