November in Books

Thursday, December 08, 2016

In November I read three books, although to be honest one of them only took me about 15 minutes so I'm not even sure it counts. I will definitely not manage to read as much in December as I am beyond busy at the moment, but I am happy with how many books I have managed to read this year.  

The Widow by Fiona Barton
I read this book for #BookClub140 which is a twitter book club run by Stacie from Parker and Me. I was actually hosting the chat this month, so I was really eager to read the book and get started on the questions. I thought this thriller was well written, and I enjoyed the plot twists, but did feel it dragged a little at times. The storyline is quite dark, but I definitely wouldn't compare this to the Girl on the Train (see below).

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
I finally caved and ordered this book thanks to all the hype that surrounds it. I didn't think that I would enjoy it as much as I did, but I have to say that everyone is harping on about this book for a reason. I just couldn't put it down! I found the twists and turns in the storyline so gripping, and I felt really confused at times about who I thought it might be. This book was just brilliantly written.

Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur
I picked this one up after seeing it all over my social media, because I am always one to follow along on a trend. I expected amazing things, and to be honest I feel a little let down. I don't relate with the author at all, which meant that despite loving her writing style I found it really hard to connect with her poems. I'm not sure if I would recommend it or not - torn on this one!

What did you read in November?
