Okay, where did I put the rest of November? Because I’m pretty sure I set it down just for a second, and now that I picked it back up, most of it is gone and I don’t even know how. I seriously can’t believe tomorrow is December and that only means one more month of 2016. Eeks!
It appears November was a busy month for this Book Princess, and she read a total of 11 books since the beginning of the month. I’m not entirely sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. I’ve created a list of all the books I read from the best reads to the ehhhhh. Seeing as I DNF’d 3 of these, there might be a tie at the end.
- Cinder by Marissa Meyer
- The Replacement Crush by Lisa Brown Roberts
- The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson
- Heartless by Marissa Meyer
- Fear the Drowning Deep by Sarah Glenn Marsh
- The Fortune Hunter by Jasmine Haynes (tie with Waiting)
- Waiting a Lifetime by Michele Gwynn (tie with Fortune)
- Of Metal and Wishes by Sarah Fine
- How to Hang a Witch by Ariana Mather (DNF)
- Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco (DNF)
- Kiss Cam by Kiara London (DNF)
If you asked me in the beginning of the month, would this be my list in this particular order? I would have told you no way in [insert magical kingdom here]. Not only did I not think that a reread of Cinder would top the list of favorite books for this month (especially seeing as I always thought I liked it least of the series) but I had no clue that I would enjoy The Replacement Crush as much.
I also thought I would enjoy Heartless far more than I did. While I enjoyed it quite a bit, now that the book hangover has died off a bit, I’m not entirely sure just how much I love it – and I’m actually enjoying The Unexpected Everything‘s book hangover far more.
I also did not expect to read Fear the Drowning Deep so fast, and I had actually started this post the day before and by the time I finished this post, I was already done. It definitely was not what I expected but still very good. My full thoughts are coming on Friday.
The three books that I DNF’d were also some of the most anticipated books on my 2016 to read list, and I ended up hating them.
So, to sum up, I ended up with a surprising book month, but definitely found a few book gems. I’m going to have to take a good, hard look at my bookshelf to figure out my December reads, which hopefully will be determined by tomorrow.
What was your November like? Did you find some great books? Did you have a few bummers? What surprised you? Let me know, because my December bookshelf may need some help! 😉

Did the Target copy make it worth it? The bookplate, is it cool? I won an ARC of Heartless but I’m curious to what was in the Target copy!
Truthfully, not really. All the bookplate said “this book belongs to…” in pretty print and that was it. There was a letter from Marissa Meyer as well on the next page, but it wasn’t as cool as I expected it to be. I can take a picture of it later and post it on here if you want!
