My Monthly Adventures: November 2017

     MERRY CHRISTMAS EVE!









 Before I even begin disussing everything I did this month, I will answer the question that everyone who is reading this is possibly thinking of: "Isn't it December, not November?" Well, um, yes, it's December and almost the beginning of January 2018; however, I am still celebrating the month of November. There is no problem with that! So, although I usually(and should) post these in the beginning of the designated month, I never felt like writing all the adventures I experienced. I really did not read that much nor did much except for college and sleeping; however, I want to cross this post off the list before it never gets posted. As this month was somewhat boring(in my opinion), I will "try" to make this post short.

Books I Read This Month

1. Ship of the Dead by Rick Riordan
4.5/5 stars
I love the Magnus Chase trilogy; however, this was not the satisfying ending that I was hoping for. There were a few things I loved and a few things I could have lived without. All of my opinions will be discussed in an upcoming review since I really want to talk about this book and what it has in store.

2. Alone by Cyn Balog
5/5 stars
This was the perfect scary book that was supposed to be read in October but ended up being read in November! I loved reading a mystery thriller type book that had me searching for answers to clues and Seda's mind. Also, I read this in the span of two hours. My mind was in overdrive!

3. The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black
4/5 stars
I have never read a Holly Black book until last month when I had gotten a special surprise in the mail, which happened to be the October NOVLbox. I really enjoyed reading this story; however, I found the story to fall flat sometimes and the characters to be cold and detached.

4. My New Crush Gave to Me by Shani Petroff
2/5 stars
Um, this cutesy Christmas Hallmark-like story was not the best. Most of the time I stay away from contemporary genre because it can get so overrated. I found this one to be overly cheesy and the main character to not be my favorite. I am hoping to review this soon as I got this from Netgalley a long time ago and need to spread my hate and love for it all over the internet.

5. Rush Revere and the Star-Spangled Banner by Rush Limbaugh
3/5 stars
Rush Limbaugh, a radio show host, is also the middle-grade author of the Rush Limbaugh series. I loved the first three when I was in the sixth grade; however, now, I have found myself not enjoying the later two additions as much as the first three. Don't get me wrong as I enjoy reading this series, but it feels very young and some of the characters can be very juvenile at times. There are other parts of the story I enjoyed and disliked; however, that will be saved for the review.

6. Rush Revere and the Presidency by Rush Limbaugh
3.5/5 stars
This one is definitely better than the Star-Spangled Banner as the gang of the children do not spill out information of the 21st century to a bunch of 17th century Americans. Other than that and a couple other things, I found the story to be fun to read and full of interesting facts.

Currently Reading

1. The Librarian of Auschwitz by Antonio Iturbe
I have always been interested in the Holocaust, and this is obviously a story taking place in one of the many concentration camps that Hitler had for keeping all the Jews in one place. Also, even though I am very interested in the happenings of World War II and the Holocaust, I really would like to know what kinds of books the librarian Dita has.

  2. Altered by Jennifer Rush
Why does there have to be a half-naked man on the cover? Just why?! Also, I love this book; it is so good!😂

3. Fire on the Track: Betty Robinson and the Triumph of the Early Olympic Women by Roseanne Montillo
This a non-fiction book that I decided to read myself. I basically assigned myself a textbook to write a report on as I had gotten it through Blogging For Books. However, I still really enjoy it as I love to run even though I do not move from my spot on my couch 24/7.

Gossip & Drama

Other than the usual of going to school five days a week for the last few months, Thanksgiving occurred. I ate turkey, stuffing, potatoes, and so many more types of food that I could write a whole book about it. Why not? I may even get on the #1 New York Times Seller List due to the massive amount of food descriptions, although I have no interest in writing a book of the different aromas of different foods. Anyway, getting out of that tangent, I also got out of school for a couple of days. Instead of studying, I slept a little more and read a little lot.

Also, I got a new cat named Astro, and he will have his little introduction soon enough so please stop knocking on my door and wondering if I want to build a snow man too.⛄ Astro is cute, cuddly, and astronomical(pun-intended)!

Posts I Wrote This Month

1. My Monthly Adventures: October 2017
2. Book Review: Frankie by Shivaun Plozza
3. Book Review: Girls Made of Glass and Snow by Melissa Bashardoust

Other than excitedly talking about food and cats, I was able to make a lot of room for books.Your welcome! Even though I would like to write a much longer and a much more boring post, I will keep to my promise to keep it as short as possible. Thanks so much for reading, and I hope to see you next month!
