Looking Back At Our Bookhauls | November 2018

Our November bookhaul this year was a lot bigger than we wanted it to be, haha. With Christmas almost upon us we know we’ll get a ton of books so we try to slow down in the months before. Last year we both managed to keep our bookhaul small, but the big question now is; did we actually read the books this time? Lets take a look at our November 2018 Bookhaul!

These posts are always ones that I’m afraid to write, haha. Especially with the bigger hauls it’s hard to see how much I haven’t read yet. I have read more from my backlist than last year, so these posts do seem to help. Last November I only bought three books, so let’s see which ones I’ve already read!

The Light Between Worlds – Laura E. Weymouth

I read this one last November, because it was a group read for TBR and Beyond. Laura definitely has a way with words. Even though this book was a bit confusing, I did enjoy the story. On top of that, look at this amazing cover!!

Girls of Paper and Fire – Natasha Ngan

This is actually pretty sad, I just talked about the sequel in the November book haul for this year. I still haven’t read this one yet, but do really want to read both of them in the near future.

Little White Lies – Jennifer Lynn Barnes

I read this one just in time. Last month, Little White Lies kept on staring at me when I walked by my bookcase. Once I started, I couldn’t put this book down. Jennifer Lynn Barnes is an author that in my eyes deserves more hype than she gets. I love her stories!

Last year I was a very good girl in November so there are only a couple of books to look back on. I’m already super afraid of December’s post, because we all now that will be a crazy one haha. Like Candyce, I read more backlist books this year than last year and I hope to continue that trend.

I Hate Fairyland Volume 4: Sadly Never After – Skottie Young
Read

The I Hate Fairyland series was one of the first graphic novels I ever read and I continued with the series ever since. Last year the final volume released and I read it right away I believe. It was a very bitterweet ending to a hilarious series that I will forever treasure.

Monstress Volume 3: Haven – Marjorie Lu & Sana Sakeda
unread

I can’t believe I still haven’t read this! The first two volumes were very enjoyable with gorgeous art. However they were also a bit hard, a lot of characters look alike and the story is somewhat complicated. I do plan on reading this one fairly soon, the fourth volume recently released so I’d like to read both back to back.

The Bane Chronicles – Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan & Maureen Johnson
Read

I already read most of the stories in this bindup as ebooks but found it for a great price online. And there were 2 stories only available in the book, so I finally got to read those two when I got this one. Of course I did so right away and I’m happy I did. These books are still fun and I’m looking forward to the new series.

End Result
Read: 2/3 – 66%
Unread: 1/3 – 33%

We actually both did pretty good this time! Have you read any of these yet? What did you think? We’d love to hear from you!
