November Reads!


Hello Readers! November was a crazy month! And now, I am even more busy with work than I was at any point of time during the entire year. Can you believe it that I don’t have the time to either read or write blogs posts here? I literally had to get up early, sacrificing my sleep to write this post! So, I hope you enjoy it! November being the busy month that it was, I was still able to read
FIVE BOOKS! I have written the reviews for a few & I promise that the review of ‘The Storyteller’ will be up soon! Here we go!!

 

~~CIRCE BY MADELINE MILLER~~

As I had mentioned to you guys earlier, I had both the Madeline Miller books for a long time, but I never picked them. But, when I started reading Circe, I was captivated! I absolutely enjoyed reading it. I loved how the story was incredibly fast paced & also how amazing it was to feel the women power through Circe! I have rated it at 4/5 stars on Goodreads!

~~LITTLE WOMEN BY LOUISA MAY ALCOTT~~

I have struggled with reading Little Women like I haven’t struggled with anything else in my life! I finally DNFd this book after my many attempts over the past 4 months miserably failed! I think when this book was written, it gained the popularity it did because of that day & age. But, reading it in 2020 is a big NO. The book hasn’t aged well at all. From the preachy Marmee March to the too brilliant or uptight 4 sisters, nothing worked for me in this book and so I finally quit it!

 

~~THE PEOPLE IN THE TREES BY HANYA YANAGIHARA~~

Hanya Yanagihara remains in my top favourite authors even though she has written only 2 books! Ever since I read ‘A Little Life’, I have not been able to shut up about it AT ALL. So, it was only obvious some time soon I was to read the only other book written by Hanya Yanagihara! And, I was glad to have read it! I have rated it at 3.5/5 stars on Goodreads.

~~THE STORYTELLER BY JODI PICOULT~~

I had taken a one-week break from work last month & during that time I read The Storyteller! It only made my vacation better. This is another historical fiction novel with stories from the World War II. So, it obviously rushed onto the top of my TBR. I bought a Hardcover version with 446 pages! I finished reading this approximately 2 weeks ago & I will write a full review on this soon because it sure deserves it! It didn’t make an impact on me like ‘The Nightingale’ or ‘All the Light You Cannot See’ did, but it came very close. I look forward to reading more of Jodi Picoult’s books! I have rated it at 4/5 stars on Goodreads!

 

~~HOME BODY BY RUPI KAUR~~

I am always looking for a collection of poems to read & that Rupi Kaur had a new book out, I had to read it! From her earlier books, I completely loved ‘Sun and her Flowers’, but ‘Milk and Honey’ did not make much of an impression on me. And, now, Home Body has again won me over! The book is divided into 4 parts; mind, heart, rest, awake. My favourite parts were rest & mind! I have rated it at 4/5 stars on Goodreads!

 

That is all, my readers! I know this was a super rushed post, but better than nothing, right? As promised, I will write The Storyteller book review very soon & also tell you about my November & December Book Hauls!! Stay tuned!


Until next time,
