I really liked this book! The illustrations definitely added to the story and helped to push the story forward. It took me a little while to get into the story but overall I definitely enjoyed it and I look forward to continuing with this series.

Carry On by: Rainbow Rowell

I loved this! It was such a great story on top of being really well written! I know this book is often described as Harry Potter fanfic and it definitely had some similarities, but it was just different enough for me to separate the two and really really enjoyed it!

Wow wow wow this book is so good! Maybe I’m a little biased but being Haitian-American, I never thought that I ever find a book in YA with such a strong and authentic representation of my culture. Outside of this though, the story and writing are so good! It got really intense towards the end; it was quite a whirlwind! So happy this book exists!

This was great!! My only complaints are that world-building was a bit lacking for me and the whimsical aspects of the story were underwhelming. Overall though I really enjoyed the plot and the epilogue has me super excited for the next book!

Kissed by an Angel  by: Elizabeth Chandler

This is one of the books Krista challenged me to read this year! I really enjoyed this!! It was such a quick read, so it kind of felt like a novella, but so much happened at the same time. It was giving me some “If I Stay” vibes. I can’t wait to finish this trilogy!

I NEED TO START CRESS IMMEDIATELY! This was so good! I’m still so intrigued and drawn in by this world! I can’t wait to finish this series. I feel like the end is going to be epic! Marissa Meyer is the queen of YA retellings.

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian

So I’ve been hearing about this book since it came out when I was in middle school but at never new anything about it other than that people loved it. I had no expectations for this book other than I would enjoy it and I absolutely loved it! I felt so many different things while reading this and the authenticity of it really blew me away! This is definitely one of my favorite reads of the year. I think anyone would take something away from this story.

Krista: I did not have as great of a reading month as I had hoped as I got really busy, and was sick. However, I read 3 amazing books this month so let’s get into it!

The Raven Boys by: Maggie Stiefvater

4.5/5 Doughnuts

Spoilery Review and Discussion of The Hate U Give By: Angie Thomas

I really enjoyed this story, especially the characters. I love them all so much! However, this book took me forever to get through. It dragged on a lot for me. I think it was all necessary to the story, and this is a great start to a series. I can’t wait to continue on with these books! However, I do hope the rest of them don’t drag on quite as much.

Spoilery Review and Discussion of The Hate U Give By: Angie Thomas

Omg I loved this book! I mentioned this before, but I’ve heard this referred to as Game of Thrones for YA, and that’s exactly what I got from this book. I loved it! The characters are all so intriguing, and getting to see things from their point of views and then how it all ties together is just like, YES! I cannot wait to read the next book in the series!

Spoilery Review and Discussion of The Hate U Give By: Angie Thomas

I agree with everything Dawlyn said!! I love this series and I cannot wait to read Cress! I enjoyed this book even more than I did the first one, and I can only imagine it’s going to get even better. I’m so in love with this series so far!!

Thanks for taking the time out to read our post! We’d love to know if you’ve read any of these books and how you liked them! We’d also love to hear what you read in November. Sound off in the comments!

  1. You both look like you’ve read some amazing books! I love The Lunar Chronicles. Each book just gets better and better and I love it when all of our main characters band together. They’re such a great team! I only managed to read/listen to three books in November too – Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor, and Just One Damned Thing After Another and A Symphony of Echoes by Jodi Taylor. I loved them all and surprisingly enough, that applies to the audiobook narrators as well as the stories themselves!!

    Ps. I love your graphic!! It’s fabulous!

    1. Krista: Omg thank you soooo much!! ❤️❤️ Daughter of Smoke and Bone is on my TBR, I’m so glad you enjoyed it! I haven’t heard of the other too, so I’ll have to check them out! We love audiobooks too. We both listened to Scarlet this month on audiobook and absolutely loved the narration! Rebecca Soler is suuuch a great narrator!

  2. I have read Miss Peregrine’s, The Raven Boys, and Falling Kingdoms. I feel like The Raven Boys is more of an atmospheric read, so it doesn’t wholly appeal to everyone. I enjoyed it, and am looking forward to reading the rest of the series. And I need to re-read all of the Falling Kingdoms books before the final one comes out in February.
