Monthly Wrap-Up: November 2020

I had a busy month, reading wise. Many of my choices happened to be shorter than what I have been reading lately, which helped me get through a lot of books. Still, there were a couple on my November TBR that I didn’t get to this month. Hopefully I will get to them in December.

I read 15 books this month, which is pretty good for this time of year. They were all very good, and I would recommend any of them. I am hoping to get some reviews up in the next week or so for some of them. They are listed in the order that I read them.

Tithe was a lot of fun. I never read this series, I think these are the last of her books I haven’t gotten too. Very dark, and lots of not very nice fairies.

A Deadly Eduction was amazing. Such a world she has created here. I am eagerly waiting for the sequel which doesn’t come out until July. Such a long wait.

An Ember in the Ashes was a reread, I think for the third time? Love this book and the series. The last book came out yesterday and I am waiting for my copy to arrive any day now. The audiobook was awesome as well.

Slay was a fun read. I was hoping for it to be a bit more humorous, but I still really enjoyed it.

Valiant was the second book, in the Modern Tales of Faerie but it was so different from the first one. I liked it though, after I got over the shock that it wasn’t a continuation of the first book.

Marion Lane and the Midnight Murder, was the only ARC I read this month. I really enjoyed it and I hope we see more by this author.

Black Powder War is the third book in the Termeraire series. As much fun as the first two. I hope to get back to this series soon, as I just figured out there were nine books!

Slay on Tour was just a good as the first, maybe even a little bit better.

Gods Behaving Badly was such a delight. I think the author did an excellent job of conceiving what the gods might be like living in modern London.

The Tower of Nero is the final book in the Trials of Apollo series. I was a great ending, truly a wonderful series.

A Torch Against the Night was the second audiobook I got through this month. I really enjoyed it and liked seeing things from Helene’s point of view as well.

How the KIng of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories was wonderful It was so nice to see things through Cardan’s eyes.

Devolution was an excellent read, not to scary although there were some scenes not for the squeamish.

The Lives of Saints was probably the shortest book I read this month, but so beautifully done, especially the illustrations.

Ironside was great. It was nice to get back to the story that was started in book one. And I finally get why we had the second book. It does tie in to this one nicely.

That was my reading month. Not sure I had a favorite, although Deadly Education and Gods Behaving Badly were right at the top. What was you favorite book in November?
