Happy December! 🌲❄️
I can’t believe the last month of 2019 is here already. This year totally flew by and honestly, I can’t wait to see it go. 2019 was A YEAR for me and without a doubt the worst year of my life so I’m excited to ring in a new year with hopefully new and better beginnings that will make up for the mess this year has been 🙃.
In the month of November I was able to tack on 9 more books to my reading goal and I officially have 9 more to go until I’ll hit my goal of reading 100 books this year! I’m pretty sure I should be able to do it without an issue. And I have to say November was filled with some pretty good books considering I didn’t rate anything lower than three stars, so I’m pretty happy with that.
Let’s dive in!

Reviews for November Reads
Don’t feel like reading a review?
Here’s my thoughts on each book in one sentence!
- A Constellation of Roses – Everything Practical Magic should have been.
- A Thousand Fires – Sons of Anarchy but make it teenagers.
- The Selection – The Hunger Games meets The Bachelor meets America’s Next Top Model.
- 99 Percent Mine – All aboard the hot mess express, but we’re here for it.
- The Queen of Nothing – The biggest upset of 2019.
- Winterwood – Cozy AF with a side of magic.
- Conclave – Tensions are flying, bombshells are dropped, threesomes are happening.
- Two Can Keep a Secret – Wig = SNATCHED.
- Ice Like Fire – It took me a year to read this, do with that what you will.
Favorite Read of the Month
This book started out good, then got okay, and the blew my freaking mind with the last sentence of the book. Love when a book just makes you sit and stare at a wall for a few minutes trying to figure out what the hell just happened.
Least Favorite Read of the Month
Straight up, on basically every single level this book was a disappointment. It’s pretty upsetting when you’re most anticipated read of 2019 ends up being the most disappointing and I would have gladly waited longer for this if it meant it would have been better.
Until next time,
