November Wrap-up

Let’s start off with my biggest reading achievement ever: I just reached my Goodreads goal of 400 books a month early! I’ve never read this many books before, so it’s a huge personal record 🙂 To follow my reading, feel free to add me on Goodreads!

This month, I read a total of 37 books, which is pretty average for me.

As always, I’ll share my 4 and 5 star reads in this post.


Jody Revenson – Harry Potter: the Character Vault

I’m currently rewatching the Harry Potter movies for the first time in years, and it’s so much fun to read these books alongside them because they give a lot of insight into what went into the making of those movies, which is a lot more than you could possibly imagine.


Jasmine Warga – Other Words For Home

Reading this, I was happy and sad at the same time. This is such a beautiful verse novel!

Rep: Syrian Muslim MC

CWs: war, islamophobia, racism, menstruation


E.S Yu – Human Enough

I received an eARC of this book through Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

You can read my review here.


Jody Revenson – Harry Potter: the Creature Vault

Just like the other Vault book, this was really insightful and enjoyable.


Jason Reynolds & Brendan Kiely – All American Boys

This was a very hard-hitting contemporary that I thought was so good.


Meredith Russo – Birthday

I somehow first thought this would be a fluffy contemporary, and I’m glad my friend corrected me and I could mentally prepare myself for this, because it’s definitely not fluffy and it’s a pretty heavy read that deals with a lot of serious topics. So please be aware of the content warnings before going in!

It might be a heavy read, it’s also such a good one. I cried when I wasn’t even 50 pages in, and I cried even more throughout the rest of the book, but there’s room for happiness as well, and I loved the romance a whole lot.

Rep: trans girl MC, Latinx side character, Jewish side character

CWs: suicide attempt, suicidal thoughts, depression, (internalized) transphobia, cissexism, misgendering, dysphoria, homophobia, misogyny/sexism, bullying, alcoholism, violence, past death of a parent, grief, mentions of cancer, abusive parent, alcoholic parent, vomiting


Erin Morgenstern – The Starless Sea

You can read my review here.


Katie O’Neill – Aquicorn Cove

Any Katie O’Neill book is beautiful, so I again loved this one a lot. It also sends an important message about environmental issues.


Katie O’Neill – Dewdrop

I received an eARC of this book through Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

“The only person I need to compete with is myself, and try to do better than I did yesterday.”

Katie O’Neill’s art work is phenomenal as always. This graphic novel is intended for a significantly younger audience than her other ones, but it’s still very much enjoyable for older readers as well. It’s about the power of friendship, being supportive of other people, and believing in yourself, which is a wonderful and necessary message for every age group. This definitely cheered me up.


Philippa Rice – Baby: a Soppy Story

I received an eARC of this book through Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

Let me preface this by saying I haven’t read Soppy. It has been on my radar though, and when I saw Baby on Netgalley I thought I’d give it a shot to see if I’d enjoy it. And I absolutely loved it! The art style is amazing, simple but meaningful. And the story and art combined make for such a soft, sweet read. Very wholesome. I thought this worked very well as a standalone as well.


Talia Hibbert – Get a Life, Chloe Brown

I received a free audiobook through Libro.fm. This has in no way impacted my opinion of the book.

You can read my review here.


Molly Ostertag – The Midwinter Witch

I enjoyed this graphic novel just as much as the previous two installments.


Chace Verity – Team Phison

I’ve been on a real romance kick lately and this one was very wholesome.


Chace Verity – Team Phison Forever

I enjoyed this book just as much, if not more, than the first installment.


Jody Revenson – Harry Potter: Hogwarts: A Movie Scrapbook

I always really love these movie books.


Misa Sugiura – This Time Will Be Different

It’s safe to say this is a new favourite contemporary. My review will be up soon.
