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. And maybe, even, our moods.

NEW RELEASE TUESDAY – NOVEMBER 24, 2020

Happy “where’d all my money go?” new release Tuesday, everyone!

As you know, the most exciting day of the week in this community is the day that follows the one we all dread (Mondays for the nope) and today we’re going to highlight some of the new books chipping away at our bank accounts — but each one is so worth it.



How The King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories by Holly Black is an illustrated addition to The Folk of the Air series which includes delicious details of life before The Cruel Prince, an adventure beyond The Queen of Nothing, and familiar moments from The Folk of the Air trilogy, told wholly from Cardan’s perspective.

Ready Player Two by Ernest Kline is the follow up to Ready Player One which one of us remembers enjoying but also forever confuses with Armada, so. Maybe a reread is needed? Either way, looking forward to this.

The Burning God by R.F. Kuang is the third book, and finale, in the Poppy War series which we are definitely now interested in starting because — binge baby!
