Wrap-up & Book Haul: [Remember] NOVEMBER


I’ve been so productive today already! It’s insane! I started and finished my first December read – yes, a diverse one! -, then I had a nap followed by freaking out over my new glasses. And.. now I’m all about the blog prep! I’ve been writing reviews, prepping my 2019 spreadsheet [Seriously, go check out Kaleena’s post with a spreadsheet she made because IT. IS. AMAZING.] and now I’m going to.. do more blog prep and hopefully play some Sims later on? Or maybe continue reading The Girl King? Who knows!

Anyway. I’ve been adding to this post throughout the entire month, so now I’m eager to see how many books I actually read. Let’s take a look!

As always, covers link back to the Goodreads-page! The star-ratings link back to my reviews if I’ve posted them or added one on Goodreads!

Books I read

Remember November

Magical Mystery Paws (The No. 2 Feline Detective Agency)The Accidental Beauty QueenThe Book ThiefHarry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter, #7)The Art of Baking Blind

Magical Mystery Paws by Mandy Morton ~ ★★★
The Accidental Beauty Queen by Teri Wilson ~ ★★★★★
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak ~ ★★★★
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows ~ ★★★★★
The Art of Baking Blind ~ ★★★★

I actually read all the books I wanted to read for Remember November? Like, every single one I put on my TBR? I don’t even know how that happened because I’m so not used to it? Maybe I should make smaller TBR’s more often or something.. [Let’s ignore how my December TBR isn’t that small at all, okay?]


Kingdom of Ash (Throne of Glass, #7)Endlessly (Paranormalcy, #3)Sinner (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #4)S.T.A.G.S

Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas ~ ★★★★★
Endlessly #3 by Kiersten White ~ ★★☆ [Review to entire trilogy can be found here!]
Sinner #4 by Maggie Stiefvater ~ ★★★★
S.T.A.G.S by M.A. Bennett ~ ★★★☆

Kingdom of Ash was SUCH a roller coaster! I should not be reading books like that while sitting in the car because I was an emotional mess and the boyfriend had way too much fun with me crying. Seriously.


Magical Mystery Paws (The No. 2 Feline Detective Agency)The Queen's WingThe Accidental Beauty QueenThe Evolution of Jeremy WarshRock Rebel (Nothing But Trouble #3)

Magical Mystery Paws by Mandy Morton ~ ★★★
The Queen’s Wing by Jessica Thorne ~ ★☆
The Accidental Beauty Queen by Teri Wilson ~ ★★★★★
The Evolution of Jeremy Warsh by Jess Moore ~ ★★★★☆
Rock Rebel by Tara Leigh ~ Review to be written since I only finished this last night!

Five ARC’s again! Not too bad, not too bad at all. Funny how I did finish Rock Rebel right at the end of November though. Otherwise it would’ve been four – which would still be amazing. I know.


Protecting Our Virgin (Our Virgin #1)Gretel: A Fairytale Retold

Protecting Our Virgin by Charlie Hart ~ ★★★
Gretel by Niamh Murphy ~ ★★★★☆

Yeah.. I fell down a certain hole and I’m pretty sure I won’t be coming out of it any time soon. More on that in my.. haul..

Total number of books read: 14
Average rating: 3.81

Okay, this section kind of needs a bit of an explanation? I usually never put anything on my Kindle except for eARC’s and that’s it. With my due date coming nearer and me trying not to request new titles on NetGalley, I was really starting to miss reading on my Kindle. I like switching formats so.. I needed some kind of solution? Which, apparently, ended with me looking up Kindle deals and.. here we are.. Literally all of them were free! So, yup, that’s my excuse.

And yes, I realize I have mentioned disliking actual people on covers before. I still dislike it – especially the half-naked ones but.. you’d be amazed how many covers have those when you aren’t looking into the ya-section?! So I started ignoring the covers and focused on the actual stories.. Otherwise this section would’ve stayed fairly empty I reckon.


Whispered Words, Volume 1Sweet Blue Flowers, Vol. 1 (Sweet Blue Flowers Omnibus, #1)

Look at that! Only two books I actually bought myself? Graphic novels, even! Funny how I planned on reading them in November but didn’t do that at all.. And now I don’t really feel like picking them up immediately either? Oh well. Eventually, am I right?

I read a whole lot more than I thought I had? Life has been hectic and I’ve been sleep-deprived lately so I didn’t really felt like I was reading all that much. Guess I was wrong.. Although.. Now that I think of it.. I did end up reading quite a few times when I couldn’t sleep at night.. Hm.

How was your December? What was your favorite read?
Do you have any reading goals to end the year with a bang?
Which book do you REALLY want to read before 2018 ends?

    1. Those free Kindle deals are DANGEROUS, haha!

      You’re very welcome! I tweaked it a bit to fit my plans more but it’s SO AWESOME to work with! Good thing I know my way around spreadsheets a bit or I would’ve messed them all up, haha.

    2. I have started deleting my bookbub and kindle deal emails because honestly, the amount of books I have tbr makes me panic a little.

      I am so glad you were able to tweak it! And if you do happen to break anything give me a poke on twitter… I have been doing a few special requests for people.

    3. I don’t even get those mails but still find myself looking them up. Although, now that I think of it, I didn’t yesterday! YAY ME! [Now I’m doomed to do it today though..]

      Aawh, that’s sweet! But since I work with spreadsheets quite a lot at work, I try to fix my mistakes by myself, haha. It’s a more fun way of learning new things than having to figure things out at work. 😛

  1. What a month, SO many books, wow! I really can’t wait to hear your thoughts on Evelyn Hugo and The Wicker King, I’ve heard so much about both of these 🙂
    Have a lovely month Kathy, take care of yourself!! ❤

  2. You had one heck of a reading month! Ugh, and those Kindle deals can be dangerous. But I’ll be interested to hear what you thought about Fawn when you read it.

    I wish I’d had a Kindle when my girls were little (they were born in 2000 and 2002), I probably would have gotten a lot more reading done during those days!

    1. Right?! I never knew how dangerous until.. November happened, haha. I’ve no clue when I read it, since I do have some January ARC’s to read first but I reckon it won’t take me that long. It isn’t a big book after all. 🙂

      Oh, I can imagine! Friends have even been recommending me to change Kindles to one with actual buttons to turn the pages because they felt it was way more handy to read while holding their baby instead of the touchscreen-only. Still contemplating whether it’d be worth it, haha.


  3. Noooo, free kindle books are dangerous!! That’s how I ended up with an owned TBR over 300. And some of these look pretty intriguing 😀 good luck with them!

  4. Great month! And hey, there’s nothing wrong with downloading a lot of free books on your Kindle.

    I had a pretty decent month…read 9 books in November. My wrap-up should be up on Tuesday. There are a number of books I’m looking forward to reading by the end of the year, so I can’t think of any immediately off the top of my head.

    1. Thanks! Haha, I know but it does feel weird having suddenly fallen into that hole.. Now it’s like I can’t stop looking up free Kindle deals? Cue the start of a new addiction.

      Oh, awesome! I’ll be on the look-out for it. 🙂 Ha, I know the feeling. I have my TBR, but on the other hand there are still so many other books I would’ve liked to read this year..


    2. And now I also have to sometimes move my posts around to accommodate my fiance when he wants to review a book or game or show on the blog. It makes blogging interesting, that’s for sure.

  5. Wow, you had a fantastic month, I’d give anything to be able to read 14 books! I did a whole post today on what I want to read this month but as usual, its overly ambitious 😁
