November Wrap Up and December TBR ~ 2017

Annike: Hey guys, so we are just about to get to the end of the school year and then we’ll be back on WordPress a bit more frequently. Zoe and I didn’t read too many books this month so I figured we’d combine our Wrap Up and TBR posts for last month and this month to fill you all in on November and our plans for December. Let’s get onto it.

Annike’s November Read:

  1. With Malice by Eileen Cook – 2 stars
  2. Laurinda by Alice Pung – 2 stars
  3. The Time Traveller’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger – 4 stars
  4. The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants by Ann Brashares- 2 stars

So as you can see, not such a great month for me in terms of reads! I listened to both Laurinda and The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants because I couldn’t find any other audiobooks to listen to but they were both a bit young and not so interesting so I didn’t really get pulled into any of those. As for With Malice, I found the story a bit boring and not all that engaging so again it took me ages to get through and I never found myself really wanting to pick it up. The only book I didn’t really enjoy was The Time Travellers Wife, which was a really great book and I actually did a review on so definitely go and check that out! So that was just a short wrap up this month, hopefully we have some more success for the final month of the year!

Annike’s December TBR:

  1. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  2. Coming Up for Air by Miranda Kenneally
  3. Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
  4. Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee: I’ve been meaning to read this one for ages and to be honest, I made it about half way last time before I just gave up so this time I am determined to get through it and hopefully love it because it is meant to be great.

Coming Up for Air by Miranda Kenneally: So, I’ve read a few Miranda Keaneally books and figured that it was time for a really sweet and light read so I wanted to add this one to the list for this month because I have it is an ebook and I figure it’s worth a try!

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Mass: Guys, I think I am finally ready to get around to this book and give it a try after ACOTAR. I have just heard too many good things to let it slip away so I am praying that if I do happen to come across it I will give it a chance and hopefully adore it as much as everyone else.

Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys: I haven’t actually heard very much about this book but what I do know is that it won the young adult fiction novel of 2016 on Goodreads and it is apparently an amazing historical fiction read which made me really interested. I think it’s in my school library at the moment so I definitely want to give it a look before we end school and hopefully it’ll be another good one! I’m a bit desperate for really good books to get me out of this slump thing haha.

Zoe’s November Read & December TBR

Zoe: I only got around to reading one book in November which was The Third Twin by C.J Omololu and rated it 2.5 stars. I wouldn’t say I really enjoyed it as I found it a bit boring and although it was a murder mystery I didn’t really connect with any of the characters. Despite my bad reading month hopefully I can have a better December:) Here are the books I would like to read this month:

  1. The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks
  2. Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
  3. The Hate U Give by Thomas Angie
  4. Three Dark Crowns by Blake Kendare

The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks: I haven’t read any Nicholas Sparks novels however I have seen a couple of his movies and I know he is known for his notoriously sad novels. I am really interested to see what this story is like and get a glimpse into his writing style. I might even watch the movie if I enjoy it.

Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson: This has always looked like such a cute book, emotional book. I think Annike read this one and really liked it. I heard it is a bit sad and I haven’t read an emotional book that has made me cry in ages so hopefully if I get around to this one if can really hook me.

The Hate U Give by Thomas Angie: I have literally heard nothing but amazing things about this book and I REALLY want to read it. I haven’t got my hands on it at the moments but hopefully from the library or for Christmas I can get this one because it sounds like such a moving and honest story.

Three Dark Crowns by Blake Kendare: This one I am not too sure about but I put it on my TBR list as the premise sounded really cool. I have heard mixed reviews on this one but hopefully the story doesn’t let down the premise because it sounds like a very original and unique idea.

Zoe: Thanks for reading everyone! Hope you are all having a lovely start to December (YAY the countdown to Christmas has started!!). If you have read any of the books we mentioned above make sure to tell us in the comments as we would love to hear your thoughts. Hope you all have an amazing weekend, we will be back with another post soon. x

  1. I recently listened to Salt to the Sea, and I have to say that I didn’t really like any of the characters, but that may have been because I found the narrators’ voices annoying. The story is fascinating, and there are some amazing descriptions.
