I debated for a while whether or not to post a November wrap-up, because it wasn’t a strong reading month for me. I read a total of 11 books this month, half Chicagoland Vampire books, the other half spicy sexy novels *no regrets*. I’m in a reading slump, which sucks, but I also watched some awesome TV! Benefits!
? Stories Consumed! ?
< The Highlights >
The Chicagoland Vampires by Chloe Neill is a newly discovered series for me last month! I read book 1-3 in October, and nearly finished it out in November with books 4-8! I’ve been in a bit of a book slump all month, and these books were a great binge. This series is kind of like watching your favorite episodes of a TV series.
I only read 11 books this month, the five Chicagoland books and some spicy romances! They were really quite meh, so I’m not featuring them here :)
I’M OBSESSED!! I’ve watch S1-S3 so far and am procrastinating on finishing with S4 ? I think I’ll leave it to be an end-of-finals treat… but I also I know that they really love each other… even if they don’t actually get together ??? I’m obsessed with this duo, oh my gosh. How am I just now watching for the first time?? They actually make me giddy ?

? December TBR ?
The Raven Cycle + Call Down the Hawk is definitely on my November TBR, and perhaps one that I’m looking forward to the most! I adore the Gangsey clan, and am so excited to revisit 300 Fox Way, and finally read Call Down the Hawk, which released almost a year ago!! (Goodreads | Amazon)
Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo is the perfect book to read for fall!! Secret (possibly vaguely magical??) Yale secret societies? Vaguely dark YA/NA book? Written by Leigh Bardugo, who wrote the incredible Six of Crows duology?? (Her Shadow and Bone series wasn’t for me, but with SoC… I’m thinking I will probably love this!!) (Goodreads | Amazon)
Serpent and Dove by Shelby Mahurin is a book I’ve been hearing about everywhere!! This means I’m having a serious case of FOMO and that I need to read it, too. I’m trying to manage my expectations. But oh my gosh, I’ve heard it follows a witch, a witch hunter, and a fake marriage of convenience that ends with one of them dead. So basically… my perfect book??? why haven’t I read this yet…? (Goodreads | Amazon)
The Corrupt series by Penelope Douglas is high on my list!! I read book one, Corrupt, last month, and have since decided that the entire Penelope Douglass series must happen this season!! This is dark and devious romance and I’m living for it ?? The first book is better if you go in blind, but involves the heroine’s best friend’s older brother, someone who has always sung to her dark side, but who is unscrupulous and very dangerous. He’s plotted three years to get his revenge … (Goodreads | Kindle Unlimited)
Chicagoland Vampires by Chloe Neill was such a fun surprise series when I discovered it in October! I’m eight books in, and plan to round out book 13 before 2021! (My Review)
How to Date a Douchebag: The Learning Hours by Sara Ney is the third book in the Douchebag series, and I have to say, I’ve been enjoying the ride so far! This new adult/college romance series has been very fun so far, and all the reviews seem glowingly positive for this one! Plus, we have a nerdy guy with a hottie heroine? I’m so down. (Goodreads | Kindle Unlimited)
