HOW WEIRD IS IT THAT IT’S DECEMBER?????? I know I say this every month, but what happened to November?? Anyway, December is one of my favourite months because Christmas is my favourite holiday, so I don’t really mind the cold ❤ . Here are all the books I read in November:
Pappan och Havet, by Tove Jansson
This was a reread for me, which I started in October and finished in early November. I was in the mood for something autumnal, so that’s why I decided to pick it up. What I loved about this especially is the fact that the island and the sea play such a big part in the story – it’s almost as if they’re characters themselves. The sea is very important to me, so Pappan och havet spoke to my heart.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay, by J.K Rowling
I read the script in preparation for watching The Crimes of Grindelwald. I love the Fantastic Beasts film (it’s one of my favourites!), but I didn’t end up leaving a rating for the script. I find it difficult to rate scripts/plays as it is, and in this case I think I’m too biased to actually rate it ^.^’ . Some of the magic is lost in here, obviously, so I would definitely recommend watching the movie instead of reading the script!
Sent i november, by Tove Jansson
Here’s another reread, which I ended up loving! I wrote a review way back in the summer of 2016 when I first read it – which you can find here – and I still stand by what I said there. But I would like to add some thoughts about the characters. Tove is good at writing characters; each of them felt very distinct from each other, with their own lives and problems. This is a book that on some level is about ideas and admiring people so much that they, in the end, aren’t people anymore but some grand picture that they cannot possibly live up to. Please just go off and read this, but be prepared for some slightly depressing stuff ^.^’
I didn’t rate this either, again because I feel biased from the film. And I basically only read it because I was in a daze from the film – because I couldn’t go watch it again right away, I had to read the script to bring some clarity to my thoughts!
Legendary, by Stephanie Garber
Three feathers | Review here
This was the last book I finished in November! I wasn’t expecting to love it, which I didn’t end up doing either. It was a quite average YA fantasy novel with not much to make it stand out, even though the idea is cool.
That was all! Have you guys read anything good this month?
