Haul, TBR & Wrap Up

November Wrap Up

It’s December already? What? OMG! I just can’t believe there’s just one month left in 2017!

November was not a great reading month for me. I read a total of 5 books in Nov, and most of which were pretty short. I realised that I don’t stick to my TBR, like ever. So I’m not going to make a TBR post for December. So here are the books I read.

  1. Velocity, Dean Koontz – I have heard people saying if you like Stephen King, then try Dean Koontz. Maybe because of that my expectations were really high. If you’re trying Dean Koontz’s books for the first time, just like me, I would suggest you to pick something else. I wouldn’t say this book blew my mind, but it wasn’t bad either. I feel this may not be one of his best works. If you love thrillers, and are looking for a fast-paced thriller with lot of action, then do pick this one.
    MY RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️

  2. The Wizards of Once, Cressida Cowell – I received this in my October Booklingscrate box. This is a fun middle grade fantasy novel. I’ll post a review soon.
    MY RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️.5
  3. Pyre, Perumal Murugan – The story is about how low people stoop in the name of caste. Sadly, till date, these incidents happen is many places. The author has done an excellent job in penning down the bitter truth. The writing hits home and makes you wonder about the harsh brutalities of our society. It is a quick, compelling and beautiful read. Please do pick it up, and am looking forward to reading more of Perumal Murugan’s works.

    MY RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  4. Adventures in Farland, Moshank Relia – I received an eBook from The Book Planet PR team in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed reading this book. It is a quick and fun read. Its been so long since I read a children’s fantasy book, and I realised I should do this more often. I will recommend this,  if you are looking for something light and quick after a heavy read. Never too old to read a children’s book, right?

    MY RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  5. History is all you left me, Adam Silvera – This is a beautiful story in a messed up way. It is heart-breaking and am sure you will end up crying your eyes out after reading this. I highly recommend it. This is a story about friendship, love, heart-break, grief, self-discovery and passion – and a really good one.

Overall I have had a slow reading month. Let me know about the books you read in the month of November in the comments section. What are the books that you want to read before the end of 2017?

Hope you enjoyed reading this post.

Love,
A fellow bibliophile.

  1. Adam Silvera’s books are on my tbr. Gotta read them soon. I have read Pyre and this book devastated me but I really liked it as well.
    Even I do not stick to my tbr and I have stopped making one. The one book I wish to read before 2017 ends is Hero of ages by Brandon Sanderson as with this I will finish the mistborn trilogy

    1. I’ve never read a Brandon Sanderson book, and that’s one thing I want to do in 2018! I’ve heard like really amazing things about the Mistborn trilogy. But they’re slightly expensive😞
      There’s something about Adam Silvera’s writing that hits home. At least for me. There were a lot of beautiful lines that I’m sure will stay with me, forever.

  2. I want to read Perumal Murugan and Kalki’s Parthiban kanavu.. I’ve had this book in my shelf for almost a year now, just not reading it. I should finish it this year!
