November Wrap Up (2021)

There is no way that time actually exists because if it did, it would not already be November.
Also, I would actually have time to read more than I do, but since the days and weeks and months just INSIST on slipping through my fingers, I guess I don’t get that.

Amazon.com: Redemptor (Raybearer Book 2): 9781419739842: Ifueko, Jordan:  Books
A Clash of Steel: A Treasure Island Remix by C.B. Lee
  • Act Cool by Tobly McSmith. Overall, I really enjoyed this one. It was a great story about a transgender actor who just got into a prestigious acting school after running away from his transphobic parents. There were some parts of the plot that I don’t know how I felt about, but I enjoyed the story as a whole. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • Redemptor by Jordan Ifueko. This is the second book in the Raybearer duology and I immediately got it after finishing Raybearer. It was great!! I loved to see where the plot went after book 1, and while there were some things that didn’t feel as fleshed out as they might have been, it was still an EXCELLENT book. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • A Clash of Steel by CB Lee. This book. Like honestly, THIS BOOK!!! The beginning was pretty slow so I wasn’t sure how I was going to enjoy it, but OH MY GOSH. This book was TEN TIMES better than I ever expected it to be, and I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Amazon.com: American Street: 9780062473042: Zoboi, Ibi: Books
The Great Gatsby | Book by F. Scott Fitzgerald | Official Publisher Page |  Simon & Schuster
Amazon.com: Not Your Backup (Sidekick Squad): 9781945053788: Lee, C.B.:  Books
  • American Street by Ibi Zoboi. I read this one back in July or August, but here I am reading it again, once again for school. Honestly, I enjoyed this a lot more this time through, I think because of all the things that my english teacher pointed out when we discussed this one in class! ⭐⭐⭐
  • The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald. Another reread for school. I have read The Great Gatsby far more than I ever thought or wished I would, and boy am I glad that it’s not long and it’s not a book that I hate (only dislike haha). ⭐⭐⭐
  • Not Your Backup by CB Lee. The Sidekick Squad series has been one I’ve been reading since February, and it’s enjoyable but not something that I’m extremely invested in. Except for this one. GUYS WE HAVE AROACE SPEC QUESTIONING REP AAAAH. And it was AMAZINGLY DONE. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Amazon.com: Darius the Great Deserves Better: 9780593108239: Khorram, Adib:  Books
Amazon.com: Red Hood: 9780062742353: Arnold, Elana K.: Books
  • The Lost Girls by Sonia Hartl. Vampire girls team up to kill their ex boyfriend, who is the vampire who turned them all into vampires. Main character falls in love withvampire ex boyfriend’s current girlfriend. I ENJOYED THIS SO MUCH!!! (yes that’s all I have to say) ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • Darius the Great Deserves Better by Adib Khorram. This one is the sequel to Darius the Great is Not Okay, which I read last month and enjoyed. Another one that I just…went to the library…and then just picked up (love being able to do that again!)…and both books are so awesome! ⭐⭐⭐⭐
  • Red Hood by Elana K Arnold. Honestly, this book felt super empowering and pretty cool, but also I understand that there’s some problems with it. This was the first book I’ve read in second person and it was really weird but I actually got used to it! [no rating]

I posted two posts this month which is twice as much as I’ve been doing since school started! The first was a book tag, something that I haven’t done since mid April. The second is an announcement about a new feature I have on my blog, where you can recommend a friend’s blog, which I’m super excited about!

The bookish blog tag
Recommend a blog announcement!

November goals:

  • Stay on top of school! ✅
  • STUDY FOR QUIZZES AND TESTS
  • Enjoy your weekends and off days. (don’t just think about school!) ✅
  • Talk/hang out with your friends more ✅

Goals-wise, I had a pretty good month! I’m super happy I was able to hang out with my friends more, just after school and such, and I also did do well in school, too! Unfortunately, I’m still not great about studying for quizzes and tests, but…

December goals:

  • Work on your english project (because I feel like this is something I’ll forget)
  • Post at least 3 blog posts? (including wrap up)
  • Stop reading just to finish books (read what you want to read!!!)
  • Hang out with your friends
  • Enjoy your time not in school
  • Study more
  • Okay so first of all, big news…I finally caught up on all my books on goodreads! Basically, I’d been slacking on marking some books as read on my goodreads, all the way back since April. Earlier this month, I went onto my blog and goodreads and marked every single book that I’d forgotten to as read on goodreads and wow I’ve actually read way more books than I thought I had!
  • School is…still school. I feel like I am finally settling into the rhythm, and everything being crazy, which is nice. I mean, I’d rather it not be crazy, but still. Our first term finished this month, and I did well which is nice, so now onward to second term, I guess (second term is always the worst).
  • I went to see a musical that my friends were in! It was really fun, I was NOT expecting to enjoy it as much as I did (no offense to my friends, it was just the topic of the play), but it was SUCH a fun experience and the play was absolutely AMAZING.
  • I went to my grandparents’ place for Thanksgiving which was really nice, we ate a lot of food (too much food, I got super full), but it was just a relaxing and fun holiday!

That’s it for this month! What did you read in November? Did you find any posts that you really enjoyed? And does time really exist (there’s only one correct answer; choose wisely).

  1. Aha yay I’m happy to see you enjoyed A Clash Of Steel so much!! I’d read the ARC a few months back, and while I felt it was lacking in some places, it was a good ol’ pirate-y adventure!!

    1. I hope you get to The Lost Girls soon! It was definitely a very original book and I loved how it explored the idea of vampires (like what can kill them, how to turn into one, etc) and made them pretty different from most books! I hope you have a great December as well!

    1. Thats so cool that your English teacher recommended you Stay Gold! Have you read it yet? Haha teachers who read are the best, I’ve literally had conversations with my English teacher just about books and it’s just fun. Of course, your post was great! I hope you have an awesome December as well!

      1. RIGHT. Like, you literally can’t talk about anything with ANYONE when you’re in virtual but like I’ve had conversations with two different teachers about books, and I just carry a book around with me and sometimes people talk to me about it. One of my friends was planning to jump me after school to steal my book (jokingly of course lol). Tell me how you like Stay Gold when you read it!!!

    1. Thank you, I’m glad you enjoyed this post! I had a pretty good reading month, I mean not as good as I had during the summer but I guess that’s expected because of school. I’m glad I was still able to read some things! Honestly same I think I’m behind on my books again as well.
      Of course, it was a great post!

    1. I hope you’re able to read them soon! A Clash of Steel totally surpassed my expectations, it started out kind of slow but once it got underway it was truly amazing. And The Lost Girls had such a unique take on vampires; it explored a lot of aspects of vampires that were really interesting! I hope that you have a great December as well!
