Hi friends! Today I’m here to share my November book haul. You guys know I don’t buy books often because I’m on a tight budget. However, I acquired nine books in November, one of which is an eARC. Most them are from used bookstores (aka inexpensive) and they were on my wish list because I read them earlier in the year. Let’s get into it.
Hunted by the Sky by Tanaz Bhathena (eARC) – Tanaz Bhathena is one of my favorite authors so I was super ecstatic when I logged onto Edelweiss and saw Hunted by the Sky available for download. It’s on my 2020 anticipated list and I can’t wait to read it!
The Toll by Neal Shusterman – This was one of my highly anticipated releases of the year. I read it in November. Gave it 3.5 stars. A quick review is up on my Goodreads.
The two Sanderson books are from the used bookstore near my house. The remaining books are from Book Outlet.
The Well of Ascension and The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson – I found these two at the used bookstore for $7.99 each and I couldn’t resist. They’re in brand new condition.
American Panda by Gloria Chao – I read this during the N.E.W.Ts readathon in August. I loved the family dynamics and wanted a copy.
The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah – This is the first book I read this year. I think I gave it 4.5 stars because there was one aspect I didn’t enjoy. Otherwise, great hard hitting novel.
On the Come Up by Angie Thomas – I read this book in February and I loved it. I wasn’t expecting to love it as much as I did.
The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis – I read this during the N.E.W.Ts readathon in August too. I loved the discussion about rape culture. Trigger warning for everything if you decided to pick this up.
There’s Something About Sweetie by Sandhya Menon – I read this in November and I loved it so much. Sweetie is one of my favorite new characters and the romance was so freaking cut
Love From A to Z by S.K. Ali – This is the only book from this Book Outlet order I haven’t read. I was looking forward to reading it, but it arrived damaged. Given that I didn’t pay for a scratch and dent copy, I reached out to Book Outlet. They were helpful.
