I read 10 books this month, and it was definitely a struggle to keep my reading speed while doing NaNoWriMo. I’m just glad I managed to reach 10 with the help of a few novellas. Plus, now I’ve written my own book. That should count for something!

- Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas || 5/5 Stars
I can’t believe this series is over. As I’ve grown with these books, so has my reading tastes, but I still have a special place in my heart for Throne of Glass. I know it’s controversial, and has some problematic elements, but it still is special to me.
- Now a Major Motion Picture by Cori McCarthy || 3/5 Stars
This book was just meh. It was lighthearted and cute, but I didn’t find myself falling in love with it like I wanted to.
- Fame, Fate, & The First Kiss (ARC) by Kasie West || 4/5 Stars
Kasie West never fails to bring me joy with her books. This one will be published in February 2019, and I’m so excited for more people to read it. It’s just so much fun!
- Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles || 3.5/5 Stars
I loved Perfect Chemistry when I read it back in 2015(?). Since then, I’ve been wanting to continue the series but I’ve been putting it off. I must have put it off a little too long because now my reading tastes are different and it just wasn’t as good of a read for me as Perfect Chemistry was.
- Umbertouched by Livia Blackburne || 5/5 Stars
This book. Rosemarked really took me by surprise this year, and while I was prepared to love Umbertouched, I didn’t expect it to be such a fantastic finale! And now because of it, I’m in a massive reading slump that’s lasted almost three weeks.
- Dumplin‘ by Julie Murphy || 4/5 Stars
Dumplin’ was good, and I enjoyed it. The hype surrounding it kinda made it a little disappointing, but I’m still super excited to see the movie on Netflix and watch this story unfold on the screen.
- We Can Be Mended by Veronica Roth || 3/5 Stars
While logistically speaking, this is a good novella and what occurs in it makes sense, I still was left unsatisfied. After Allegiant– a book that bothers me for dozens of reasons– I was hoping this novella would make me feel a little better, especially with years of distance between me and that series. It didn’t. Now I’m just bitter all over again.
- The Favorite by Kiera Cass || 4.5/5 Stars
I really enjoyed going back into the world of The Selection. It may not be the best series in the universe, but I loved it when I first read it in 2014-2015. And now I can say I still love it.
- The Epilogue by Kiera Cass || 4/5 Stars
I continued on my The Selection binge. And this cute novella was absolutely adorable and just very happy.
- The Maid by Kiera Cass|| 3/5 Stars
And now to the end of my The Selection novella marathon. I wished this one was a little bit longer, either starting earlier in the story or continuing to later.
