November Reading Wrap Up

reading wrap up.jpg

November was kind of a weird reading month for me. I hit a few reading slumps, and definitely didn’t get as much done as I would have liked. There were a couple of books I didn’t really like, but overall, I read some really great books and even found a new favorite! When I surpassed my Goodreads Reading Challenge goal in September, I unofficially changed my goal from 50 to 100 books. And I am now 4 books away from that goal! I’m also only one book away from completing the PopSugar Reading Challenge! I’m looking forward to some great reading in December, so keep an eye out for my December TBR.

Just in case you couldn’t guess from my ratings (below), my favorite books of the month were Uprooted by Naomi Novik, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli, and Saga Vol. 1 & 2 by Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples. If you haven’t read them yet, I would highly recommend them all!

P.S. Sorry I didn’t take a nice picture this month, but almost all of the books I read were either ebooks or inside the larger anthology textbook for my grad school class. So you’ll just have to imagine them.
