Another month came and went! November wasn’t the best month of the year, was it? A certain election shook the world. My reading and blogging slump was real. Despite not working full-time anymore, I couldn’t achieve much because I couldn’t concentrate on anything. However, it wasn’t all bad. I celebrated my birthday! Well… I was actually sick on my birthday and had to spend it in bed, but I celebrated a bit anyway. And then the Gilmore Girls revival came, which I was so excited about, but it sort of disappointed me. Overall, November kinda sucked, but that’s okay! Ups and downs, right? December holds promise ❄☃🌲
BOOKS READ THIS MONTH
- A Deadly Affection was a slow-paced medical mystery with 1907’s New York as a backdrop, along with guilt, discrimination against women in science, and the beginnings of psychotherapy as some of its most intriguing themes.
- Nevernight was the first part of Mia’s tale, an assassin in training. With a complex world-building that really came to life with its unique narration, the story ended-up really captivating me and I can’t wait for the second book to come out!
