Wrapping Up November || It’s raining exams people!

I can’t believe I’m wrapping up the second last month of 2021.

Like wow, 2021, you flew.

I also can’t believe I am in the middle of boards right now.

(Yes this post was written ages ago i.e 24th November).

I really can’t chit chat much now because BOARDS. Let’s scroll along people!

Books I read this month

1. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo.

So I finally gave in to the persuasion done by our lovely PBJ and our lovely Ray. I enjoyed this book tho, very much. So thank you Ray and PBJ for sending SOC memes and then spamming the chat so I didn’t get spoilers.

It’s a lot to take in. If you don’t like a highly developed fantasy, you probably won’t like it. *stares at Nahu*. It took me the first quarter of the book to figure what in the name of heaven was going on. After you figure that out, it’s a good ride.

It had the right amount of anticipation, thrill, adventure, comedy and suspense. I definitely recommend this to everyone who likes fantasy. When the book was over, my first thought was literally ‘Omg is it over already?’.

2. The Love Hypothesis by Ali Novak

I loved this book so much I can literally talk about it in a whole new post.

The story was AWESOME. The characters were AWESOME. The clicheness I needed between studying was AWESOME. Every page, literally every page, had me smiling and grinning and blushing.

I loved the meet cute the characters had, it was so unique and I wish something like this would’ve happened with me. Ahhh!! Adam Carlsen is such a nice guy. The plot is normal, although I feel like it was exaggerated a bit for the sake of the story in the later part.

You really should read this if you like contemporary and romance. Such a wholesome read it is, definitely recommended.

3. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Another rom-com set in the city of love, Paris.

I enjoyed this book, but I don’t think it was something really special. Like, for example, ‘Love Hypothesis’ had a great plot. And this book, the plot didn’t really work for me. Books where the love interest breaks up with his girlfriend, only to date the protagonist make me really wary.

I don’t know. I enjoyed it. But it wasn’t really anything unique. Give it a go if you want a light read.

4. 10 Blind Dates by Ashley Elston

I loved the concept of this book.

The whole 10 blind dates thing was so much fun. The family relationships are built very well. And the point is, I relate. I have a bunch of cousins, who all live near each other, and I only go there on vacations. It’s heartbreaking to leave after that, and then get whatsapp images of them enjoying-WITHOUT ME.

well, the only thing I didn’t like about this book was the whole Griffin thing. A relationship with him wasn’t really needed for the story, so.

Recommended. But not a personal favourite of mine.

5. The Sisterhood of Travelling Pants by Ann Brashares

6. 10 things I hate about Pinky by Sandhya Menon

TBR for December

It’s officially December.

Time to read fluffy books.

Time to read holiday season books.

Song stats for November

Did spotify update or something? Why do I only see 3 people?

Top Tracks this month

I am so not surprised. So not surprised. And no, I don’t love Pehli Baar. My spotify has this weird BUG that won’t let it go. ¯\(°_o)/¯

Blog Thoughts

I’m not going to check the stats, because they’ll just make me more depressed.

I’m sure we weren’t that good this month either. But since exams and stuff, and my posting schedule hasn’t been that great either. I won’t get mad at you all.

Yet.

Here are the posts I publish this month.

Ending Thoughts

This month on a personal level, was alright. With all the festivals and exams, I was exhausted throughout.

Literally, that’s what describes November 2021. The month I studied till morning, the month where I was so exhausted I was a zombie, the month which had all the festivals.

Thank goodness, the Indian festival calendar is on halt till Jan 14th.

I needed a break after all these festivals and exams and probably I’ll get one after December 12th. Poof.

I have high expectations from December. That the later part will be all chill and relaxy. Let’s hope December lives up to my hopes.

Signing out now.

Good luck for December everyone!
