Book Haul Monthly Wrap-Up

November 2019 Monthly Wrap-Up & Book Haul

Be sure to check out The Monthly Wrap-Up Round-Up hosted by Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction!

November is always a light reading month for me since I participate in Nanowrimo and most of my free time goes to that, but I did manage to read a few books. Let’s break it down!

3.5 out of 5 stars (3.5 / 5)

I started the month off finishing up One Week ‘Til Christmas, an eARC I’d received from Netgalley. It was a great way to kick-off the holiday season! You can find my review here.

Next, I finished reading D’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths with my son and it was also one of my last books to complete the Popsugar Reading Challenge for the year. You can find my wrap-up of it here.

5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)

I wanted to reread The Raven King before I picked up Call Down the Hawk. If I would’ve had all the time in the world, I would’ve loved to reread the whole Raven Boys series, but I’ve reread the first three books several times and only read The Raven King once, so I at least wanted to get to it. I actually read it fairly quickly, and managed to get through the first few chapters of Call Down the Hawk, but I could immediately tell it was a book I wanted–and needed–to give my full attention to, so I decided to set it down until after Nanowrimo. I’m so excited to finally get back to it!

4.5 out of 5 stars (4.5 / 5)

The German House was another eARC I received from Netgalley. It will be available on December 3rd. I will have that review up soon as well. I really enjoyed it!

5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)

Lastly, I finished Pumpkinheads! This graphic novel by Rainbow Rowell is super cute and perfect for the autumn season! It helped me to reach my Goodreads goal of 75 books for the year, and I still have the whole month of December to read for entertainment!


If you look back at my November TBR, you’ll see I was hoping to read another ARC, Saint X, even though it won’t be published until February 2020, but I decided to save it for next year so it can count towards my Popsugar Challenge. I also hoped to finish Call Down the Hawk, but I’ll finish that one soon!

October Book Haul

I had a pretty good haul this month. I picked up In Zanesville and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde at a library sale. I snagged Pumpkinheads, P.S. I Still Love You and Always and Forever, Lara Jean from Target’s buy two, get one free promotion! I pre-ordered Call Down the Hawk and I received Brooklyn and My Last Continent through Paperbackswap.


Now that I’m officially done with all my reading challenges and Nanowrimo, I can finally read for enjoyment (which means a lot of holiday-themed books) and enjoy the holidays! How about you?? Did you participate in Nanowrimo? What was your favorite read in November? Is there a certain book/books you’re excited to read in December? Let me know in the comments!

Happy Wandering!

  1. An interesting range of books! I can’t wait to read Raven King – planning that for new year. I started NaNo – but did not finish. But at least I got some writing done. All the best in your December reading.
