In November, I managed to read three books. I didn’t read for a whole week and a half due to a homework overload before my January Exams.
The Books I read this month were;
- Melody’s Key
- The Raven King
Melody’s Key, by Dallas Coryell 🌟🌟🌟🌟
This book was sent to me by the author Dallas Coryell – thank you! I wrote a review for him which you could find here. This is young adult romance which is perfect to curl up with. I enjoyed this book, it’s not something I would usually read, but it was very refreshing. Dallas Coryell is a really good and underappreciated author.
Graceling, by Kristin Cashore 🌟🌟🌟
I’ve heard that this book is really different and unique, so I picked up a copy and I wasn’t overwhelmed by its greatness. The story follows a young girl who has two different coloured eyes, meaning she is graces with a talent. These graces can range from singing to fighting, and the story takes place across seven kingdoms. She meets another graced fighter, and together they have to try and protect their world. It’s an interesting idea, and the writing style reminded me of Jane Eyre, which was weird as it’s all about killing people(this may be because I audiobooked some of it though…) It’s a good book, but I don’t know if I’ll finish the series as I don’t really feel inspired to pick the rest of the books up.
The Raven King, by Maggie Stiefvater 🌟🌟🌟
First of all, I have a love – hate relationship with this series. I hated The Raven Cycle. After a year, I read the Dream Thieves and gave it five stars – it mainly focused on Ronan, my favourite. Blue Lily Lily Blue disappointed me and earned three stars, and then we have the Raven King. If you guys follow me on Goodreads you’ll have seen my review consisted of “I don’t get it” because I don’t. Now, before you all hate on me, I am the biggest fan of Maggie’s Shiver series, which a lot of people hate, so I have nothing against the author. It was just long winded, predictable and did not capture my attention. There’s not much I can say without spoiling what happens as it is the last book, but it follows Blue and three Raven Boys as they go on a quest to find a Welsh King.
Well, that’s all the books I read in the month of November, let me know what books you read and if you have read the books above.
Thank you for taking time to read this.
