So another month has passed in this crazy year and I don’t know about you but, I for my part, am looking forward to 2021. It just got to be better, right? XD November was another one of those months I’d love to erase from my memory: Our second full lockdown and a terrorist attack in the first district of Vienna right before that lockdown started. My workplace is close to that district and I went to work on the next day when they still suspected that terrorists could roam the streets. Fun times. My entire family feared for me and called me on my way to work.
Obviously I got there safely or I couldn’t write those lines, the atmosphere was more than just eerie though. I basically heard sirens the entire day and for the first time in a long time I didn’t feel safe in Vienna. What a start into the month of November… The rest of it was thankfully rather unspectacular. Close to the end of the month I got sick and spent a few days at home trying to get back on my feet. It was no Covid, just a normal and super horrible common cold. *lol* Everyone who has kids knows that you can’t really rest though. XD
Anyway, I’m healthy again and I hope it will stay that way. 😉 Our lockdown ended on Monday the 7th so I hope that I’ll be able to go to the library again. At least once before the Christmas holidays start and I better take my bestie with me or I won’t even be able to give her my Christmas present. XD Guess to go to the library is one of the few things we’re still allowed to do and knowing us we’ll make it count. *lol*
This said let’s go for my bookish monthly wrap up! =)
Books read: 6 (5 books & 1 webcomic, I managed to read another webcomic! Yay! XD)
Pages read: 1.927 (I think November was probably one of my weakest reading months and I blame it all on the second lockdown. *lol*)
Average rating: 4 (For once a solid rating without any decimal points. 😉 )
Books that were on my reading list: 1 (1 from 2019 and 0 from 2020. I know it looks bad for my 2020 list but I’m currently reading 3 books from my list and my December Wrap-Up will definitely look better.)
This was a review copy I got from the author in exchange for an honest review. I liked it but there were a few things that hampered my enjoyment and I just couldn’t overlook them. So yeah, for a debut novel this was pretty good and I’m convinced that Jannat will get even better with time. She’s definitely a promising author so I’ll cross my fingers for her. If you’re curious about my full review you can read it here!
I really enjoyed „Prodigy“ and I’ll never get tired of Day. He’s just too precious for this world and I love his character so much! ❤ The ending of this book just about killed me and I really hope that „Champion“ will end on a better note. >_< It has to, because I can’t accept an ending like that! XD I’m pretty sure Marie Lu will throw me for a loop again. Actually I kind of hope she will. *lol* Anyway if you want to read my review just click on the „Prodigy link“ above!
Muse of Nightmares:
Okay, this was probably one of the most stressful books I ever read. About 80% of „Muse of Nightmares“ I was hopeless and felt desperate because boy, things were getting worse and worse. Regarding what happened in the story. Not the book, mind you! XD The book was awesome but damn my precious characters had to suffer. >_< So yeah, this was a pretty gruelling read but a really great conclusion to the series. Still, some part of me hopes for a 3rd book because there are quite a few characters I’d love to read more about. *cough* Thyon, Ruza, Calixte and Tzara *cough*.
I love this series so damn much and Will Herondale and James Carstairs are my two precious boys!!! ❤ It took me 4 months to read this book, because I was enjoying my reread so much! I swear I savoured every letter and sentence and I can’t wait to read „Clockwork Princess“. This book was way darker than its predecessor and I lived and breathed for it! *lol* Also Magnus Bane is the best! This is still one of my all time favourite series ever! XD
King of the Dark:
It was time for some m/m dark romance again and I’m pretty sure this one might have gotten me on Santa’s naughty list! But tell you what? I don’t care! *lol* This was just too good not to read it. I loved all the scheming and court intrigues and I sure as hell enjoyed those steamy scenes! ;-P Also there was a war against elves brewing in the background so we had a fantasy element too. And last but not least: Vasili Caville! I love that man!!! ❤ I’m soo looking forward to read the next book just to see where his character will go!
A fellow goodreads member recommended this webcomic to me and the moment I started to read it I was hooked! „The Croaking“ is as awesome as a m/m webcomic can be! I loved both of the MCs (especially Scra) and the world building is amazing! But not just that, the drawings are super gorgeous and the artist has some serious talent! Like OMG! Alone to draw all those feathers and wings must be such a pain in the behind! *lol* I’m just glad Echorise decided to continue drawing them! XD Season 2 just started so you might want to jump „The Roost“ train?! *wriggles eyebrows*
How was your November? Did you read more books than I did? Did you already read „The Croaking“ and if yes do you have some amazing webcomic recommendations for me? Is your country in a lockdown too? Will go go to the library before Christmas? And the most important question of them all: Are you ready for the next year?! *lol* (Because I definitely am!!!)
Talk to me and let me know! 😉
