MONTHLY WRAP UP – NOVEMBER 2020

Micky here, I just want to drop in to say it’s been a difficult month reading wise for me, I have done literally nothing for the blog and Hollis has been carrying it all. She is a star shining brightly in my sky. I’ve been seriously ill in hospital with COVID that didn’t gel well with me already having severe asthma. I am kind of recovering but I still have pneumonia. Some of my reviews below are from reads I did in October but released in November. I have little to show for my month as when I have read, I haven’t felt able to do a full review but I hope you will be patient with my paltry attempts. Much love!

To close out each month, we’ll be posting a break down of everything we reviewed, beginning with the reads we loved.. and ending with the reads we didn’t. Not only does this compile all our reviews in one handy summary for you to peruse, or catch up on, it also gives us an interesting birds eye view of the month and our reads.
