This is my very late November 2013 Wrap-Up. This month was rather different from normal reading month. I read seven books and two plays. I don’t usually read plays, but the two I read this month were surprisingly good.
The books I read in November:
Once a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough: YA/Fantasy. Tamsin Greene comes from a long line of witches, and she was supposed to be one of the most Talented among them. But Tamsin’s magic never showed up. I did not like this book. 2/5 stars. There will not be a review for this one.
Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout: YA/Paranormal. Book 2 in the Lux–Series. I really enjoyed this one. 4/5 stars. Review to come.
Tímaþjófurinn (The Thief of Time) by Steinunn Sigurðardóttir: Fiction. I read this one for Uni. I didn’t like the writing style or the plot. 1/5 stars. There will not be a review for this book.
Frigid by J. Lynn (Jennifer L. Armentrout): YA/Contemporary Romance. For twenty-one-year-old Sydney, being in love with Kyler isn’t anything new. They’d been best friends ever since he pushed her down on the playground and she made him eat a mud pie.But when they’re stranded together at a posh ski resort due to a massive Nor’easter, there’s nothing stopping their red-hot feelings for each other from coming to the surface. Can their friendship survive the attraction? I really liked this book. 4.5/5 stars. Review to come.
Uncle Vanya by Anton Checkov: Play/Classic. I read this play for Uni. I quite liked it. 4/5 stars. There will not be a review for this one.
Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout: YA/Paranormal. Book 3 in the Lux–Series. This one was good. 4/5 stars. Review to come.
Galdra–Loftur by Jóhann Sigurjónsson: Play. This play is based on a Icelandic folk tale about a boy who experiments with magic. I also read this play for Uni. It was really good and I would like to see this on stage. 4/5 stars. There will not be a review for this one.
Attachments by Rainbow Rowell: Fiction/Romance. “Hi, I’m the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you . . . ” When Lincoln comes across Beth’s and Jennifer’s messages, he knows he should turn them in. But he can’t help being entertained-and captivated-by their stories. By the time Lincoln realizes he’s falling for Beth, it’s way too late to introduce himself. This book was amazing. 5/5 stars. Review to come.
The Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon: YA/Fantasy. When Megan Rosenberg moves to Ireland, everything in her life seems to fall into place. After growing up in America, she’s surprised to find herself feeling at home in her new school. She connects with a group of friends, and she is instantly drawn to darkly handsome Adam DeRÍs. This one was good. 4/5 stars. Review to come.
