This month I didn’t actually get time to read as many books as I usually do. Which saddens me. The reason behind that though, is that I was starting up this blog!
The books I read this month were mostly books from the library – as per usual, I assure you. I read 6 books, actually. So not bad overall.
The Girl at Midnight was the first book I read this month. I actually really liked this novel. Grey has created a world relative to our own; this world kind of shadows ours, really. These creatures have lived near us for a long (long) time. And among them, they have a legend of a Firebird.
Ice Like Fire is the second book to Snow Like Ashes, and I gotta say, I was a quarter way through this book, then I was hit with the slump. What a time to get hit with a slump, right?? Not to worry though! I still really enjoyed reading more of Meira’s story. — And I’m super excited for the third book!!
I was under the guise that I had to have read Bardugo’s first trilogy to understand this world, which was no problem seeing as how I’ve already read the trilogy. Good new though!!! You don’t have to read the Grisha trilogy to understand this book. There are parallels and the like, but the characters from the Grisha trilogy are only mentioned in this book in passing. Still a really enthralling read though! You should check it out!
I was actually excited to read about a book that took place in Russia. Queen of Someday actually takes place in the past – I really can’t stand historical fiction. So I didn’t particularly enjoy this book. There were a few times I laughed and such. For the most part though, I didn’t like it. – I won’t be continuing on with this trilogy.
The review for this book will be up soon, I think. I got this book as an ARC, so I’ll be posting the review over on my tumblr account as well. I like that this book is a steampunk-ish novel and there’s a touch (a smear, really) of the fantasy world with witches and all being the main focus of this book.
I first found this book on Netgalley but wasn’t accepted as a reader but no biggie! Before reading this book, I had heard that the story line is based on this girl getting revenge for her family and friend and holy smokes, is it ever. Daughter of Deep Silence swept me up in the action within reading the first chapter and let me tell you… It just gets better from there. I got this book out from the library, and HOLY CRAP I LOVE THIS NOVEL.
I, again, got this as an ARC so the review will be over on my tumblr account, maybe on here, but know this: I enjoyed the novel. Another steampunk novel. Which is one of the best ones I’ve read to be honest. I think I’ve only read a few – I have to remedy that, any recommendations?? But I really enjoyed this one and actually read it last night / this morning!
Those are the 6 books I read this November. What have you read this month?
Thanks for reading! Until next time,
