Fare thee well November…

Hello beautiful book lovers!!

Can you believe it’s the end of November…saaay whaaaat?!?!? That means that from tomorrow, 1 December 2016, we can say “it’s Christmas this month!!!!”.

I’ve had quite a productive month for reading.Β I think it’s because it’s the end of the year, I’m pretty over it all and just want to be in my own little cocoon. I am hoping that by the Christmas holidays I will emerge as a beautiful butterfly (or a semi-decent one anyway).

Here are some of the amazing books I read this month, all with links to book depository in case you wish to buy one for yourself or a loved one for Christmas.

The Mime Order – Samantha Shannon


Nevernight – Jay Kristoff


The Kite Runner – Khaled Hosseini


A Court of Mist and Fury – SJ Maas


Illuminae – Amie Kauffman and Jay Kristoff


Gemina – Amie Kauffman and Jay Kristoff


Other stuff…

I went and saw Fantastic Beasts last week and it was freakin AMAZING!!! I LOVE Eddie Redmayne as Newt, there really isn’t anyone else who could have played that part as perfectly as him. I also loved the creatures…I can’t wait to see what the rest of this series brings us!

I’d also like you to meet the newest member of my family – Rogue. So I am a MASSIVE Rogue fan. I seriously believe she is one of the most underrated X-Men, and it is super sad because she has the raddest super powers. I really hate how she was portrayed in the live action moves. I understand that Anna Paquin was just doing what she was told, however she managed to turn Rogue into someone who just felt sorry for herself. Anyway, I found this figure while I was out shopping one day and I had to get her…you don’t find many of Rogue (refer back to underrated). Isn’t she beautiful!!!

So that’s me for November! How was your November? What did you read? Did you make any impulse purchases like me?

      I did really like Kite Runner, it was really sad though…I struggle with sad books, which is why I tend to stick to fantasy.

        It was definitely a depressing read. Soon as things seemed at their worst, something worse happened. Glad you liked it though!
