November Wrap Up | ’19

Blogmas 2019

Happy December! Well, almost December. Happy end of November! This is what I read this month:

Books

Assassin's Fate (The Fitz and the Fool, #3)

Assassin’s Fate by Robin Hobb – I finished it. I finished Hobb’s Realm of the Elderlings series and man it tore me apart. I buddy read this with Zezee and I’m pretty sure both our reactions at the end were just AUAUUGHAHSHHGHGH. This book was absolutely fantastic, and I feel like it tied up enough of the plot that it was a satisfying ending, yet it kept just enough open that if Hobb would decide to write another book in that world, that she could pull it off rather easily. – 5 stars

Sightwitch (The Witchlands, #0.5)

Sightwitch by Susan Dennard – This was a novella I picked up on audio that takes place between books two and three of the Truthwitch series. It was neat, and I liked it, but otherwise it didn’t leave much of an impression on me. – 3 stars

Noragami: Stray God, Vol. 2 (Noragami, #2)

Noragami vol 2 by Adachitoka – I picked up this series originally last month and thought it had a solid beginning. This second volume expanded on that, and I’m definitely invested now. – 3.5 stars

Land of the Lustrous, Vol. 7

Land of the Lustrous vols 7 and 8 by Haruko Ichikawa – This series is getting more and more interesting with each volume. I have so many questions now, augh! – 4 and 3.5 stars respectively

You

You by Caroline Kepnes – I’m still not sure what I read, but I liked it. Man, this book was so unsettling, and it made me feel so many mixed emotions. But wow, was it compelling. I read this so fast, maybe within two or three days. Do I ever want to reread it? No. But it was definitely a ride. – 4 stars

Food Wars!, Vol. 1

Food Wars vol 1 by Yuto Tsukuda – I’ve been following the anime of this for a while and when I saw vol 1 sitting on the shelf, I figured I’d pick it up. This follows the main character on the front as he goes to culinary school. It’s absolutely out of it’s mind and all over the place, but it’s also hilarious, so I liked it. – 3.5 stars
