guuuuuys, it’s december!!! i am sooo happy! i love christmas. i can’t wait for my christmas break and visiting my parents and just have a great time!! yay!!! but for now, here’s my wrap up. i read 13 books in november, which i am very happy about. it was a good reading month, although i was busy! i won’t list all 13 books, here, because one is a christmas present for someone who is reading this. 😀 i also won’t include it in my stats categories, because it would be easy to figure it out. yes, i am mean haha! so, without further ado, let’s get to the wrap up:
female authors: 6

author: tom hanks
i love tom hanks and i loved this audiobook, because he narrated it himself. usually i am not a fan of short stories, but i really, really enjoyed it. read my review here
author: akemi dawn bowman
this is a heartbreaking and heartwarming story about a girl who doesn’t know where she belongs to. she just wants to get away and find her own way and live her dream as a painter. to overcome her fears. not to depend on anybody and be free of her dark past. it is emotional and will definitely make you cry. you will feel so many different feelings while reading this book. read my full review here
5.) when dimple met rishi
title: when dimple met rishi
author: sandhya menon
is a funny and light contemporary that will definitely make you laugh at some points. if you enjoy love stories, you will like this. i enjoyed the audiobook, because it was narrated very well and made me laugh. i just wasn’t happy with the ending and the serious relationship development in such a short time. read my full review here
6.) fahrenheit 451
title: fahrenheit 451
author: ray bradbury
i liked “fahrenheit 451”. i had mixed feelings, i was shocked, i enjoyed it. but i think it would have been much better, if i hadn’t listened to the audiobook.
7.) memoirs of a teenage amnesiac
title: memoirs of a teenage amnesiac
author: gabrielle zevin
this was a book i read through the traveling book project germany and although i love stories about memory loss, i didn’t enjoy this one that much. i really struggled with the main character, because she was so annoying and out of place at some points. i think i will write a review for this, but i am not sure yet.
author: scott reintgen
i am really mad about this one. i stopped reading it, because i wasn’t in a sci-fi mood anymore and i had problems to get into it. but after picking it up back again i loved the last third. read my full review here
9.) a spool of blue thread
title: a spool of blue thread
author: anne tyler
i have heard so many good things about this family story, but unfortunately it was nothing special to me. there was even one part i still don’t know what to think of. but after “watching glass shatter”, this just wasn’t good enough. it was just ok.
author: andy weir
i don’t know why i was so afraid of this book, because it was really good. i enjoyed it a lot, i laughed so much and the characters and story were great. this was so much fun. read my full review here
