Wrap-up: November

Hi Munchworms!

November has ended, which means it’s time for a period of drowning in wrap-ups!
Not that it’s a bad thing since those tend to be my favorite posts, ha.

I already wrapped up Remember November, but of course, I also read some books that weren’t for any challenges that I set myself.

Here’s every single book I read during November:


Seeking MansfieldBecause You Love to Hate Me: 13 Tales of VillainyDeath Note, Vol. 10: Deletion (Death Note, #10)Death Note, Vol. 11: Kindred Spirits (Death Note, #11)Death Note, Vol. 12: Finis (Death Note, #12)Death Note, Vol. 13: How to ReadFairy Tail, Vol. 01Fairy Tail, Vol. 02The Monster Of Selkirk Book II: The Heart Of The ForestEleanor Oliphant is Completely FineDaughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #1)


Christmas at the Candied Apple CaféShoot the Moon (Seeking Mansfield, #2)BustedA Winter’s Wish Come TrueSonglines (The Sentinels of Eden, #1)This Heart of MinePoets, Artists, Lovers: A NovelA Match Made By Chloe

Total number of books read: 19

The Glass Spare (The Glass Spare, #1)Whichwood


Odd & TrueHeir of Fire (Throne of Glass, #3)


The Fault in Our Stars

I’ll probably end up with two copies of The Last Namsara since a certain subscription box still hasn’t arrived – I’m really getting impatient now, haha – and I already know that one will be in it. Future European giveaway anybody?

As for December, I’m doing my own Diverse December where I’ll try to read as many diverse books as possible! Want to join?!
My TBR will be up on Sunday, I think!

    1. Neglect my cleaning chores? And pretty much any other tedious chores I dislike? Haha. :’D

      Oooh, yes I definitely liked it! I posted my review over a week ago, I think – if you feel like checking that out. I never read classics, like ever, but Seeking Mansfield made me curious about Mansfield Park by Jane Austen and I seriously ordered a copy, haha.

    1. It is!
      Honestly, it’s made me quite wary of anthologies. I liked some of the stories, but most of them were meh or I seriously started skimming… Not to mention the added pieces after every short story by the booktubers. They didn’t add anything, so I even skipped those after reading two.
      I mostly read meh-reviews or simply negative reviews on it. Although it’s a good way to get to know some authors’ writing styles… I think I’m not going to pick up an anthology any time soon, haha. If I didn’t already own it, I probably would’ve never read it. But I did, so I gave it a shot anyway. You can always check my full review on it! 🙂

    2. Oh, that’s really too bad! I’ve read a couple of anthologies and really enjoyed them, but I’ve heard that BYLTHM is not your average fabulous anthology.
      Me too, that makes sense.
      Before you give up anthologies, though, maybe check out A Tyranny of Petticoats? I thought it was absolutely fabulous and it’s one of the most talked about favorite anthologies from people (wow, that was a very roundabout sentence).

    3. Hm. I might do that! I’m going to hold off a bit when it comes to anthologies because I don’t want my opinion on BYLTHM to ruin another anthology, haha. It’s so easy to hold a grudge sometimes so I’m going to give it a bit more time.
      Thanks for the rec! 🙂

    1. Haha, neglecting my chores? That’s mostly how I end up reading a lot more than I should, haha.
      Thank you! But you shouldn’t compare though! Honestly, I often neglect other stuff so I can read, which isn’t always a good thing really. I should change that a bit but.. reading is so tempting and way more fun than cleaning. :p And, compared to a lot of other bloggers, I’m lucky to have a job instead of still going to school and having to deal with studying and homework.. :p

    2. Hahahaha! Cleaning? Psh! I don’t do that. 😉 I don’t have much to clean as I keep my apartment relatively tidy to begin with, but I lose a lot of time to catching up on comments and studying for school and just trying to remember what I’m supposed to do. :p

      Oh yes. Having a job allows a lot more time than when in school. I would now know as I’ve done both while blogging. :p I kind of miss having a job, honestly. Making money. Having free time. *sigh* That sounds like the life. Hee hee!

    3. If I’m on my own, I keep everything pretty neat and tidy as well. It’s the boyfriend that messes the whole thing up. Pretty sure he was a little cute pig in his previous life or something.. :p
      Catching up on comments is the first thing I do in the morning. Gives me some time to slowly wake up and is an instant happy-boost, haha. Works better than coffee! [Okay, that’s such a big lie..]

      I haven’t done both since I only started my blog half a year ago and I definitely do not plan on heading back to school, haha.
      Don’t forget “being able to splurge on books once in a while”! That’s a huge one! :p

    4. Hahaha! Nothing works better than coffee. 😉 (Except maybe a Java Monster, but that’s AWFUL for you. Hahaha!)

      That’s cool. More school isn’t for everyone. Some days I wonder if it’s for me. :p Haha! Yes, having money for books is huge. I’m on a hard book buying ban at the moment. No books for me until I read what I have. Aka I probably won’t buy any books in 2018! *gasp*

      Why did you first decide to start your blog, Kathy? 🙂

    5. Oohh, I like the Punch Monster best! Might be awful for me but I love it too much to say no, haha.

      If you’re only wondering instead of pretty much coming to the conclusion it isn’t for you, I’d say you’re still safe, haha.
      Oh goodness. How are you going to do that?! Survive that?! I’d die. I would have to avoid bookstores for an entire year.. And that’s a no-can-do!

      I came across someone with a bookblog who was selling a self-constructed book box on a booklovers-page I was part of. I had no clue she had a blog until I got the box and her card was in it. Pretty much after checking it out I was pondering the idea of starting one myself all day. Sooo after work, I got home and simply started one, haha.

    6. Hmm… I have not seen that one around yet. Perhaps I will have to look into it and no caffeine is really ‘good’ for you. But that ain’t gonna stop me. :p

      Hahaha! Yeah, I’m trying to figure the whole school thing out. I miss the work-life balance of having a full time job. No hw is nice. 🙂

      Hahahahaha! I survive it because I am way too busy to even think about books any more and the less books I buy, maybe the more I’ll write my own? hahaha! We’ll see how that logic works. :p

      Hey, that’s awesome! Starting a blog is always the hard part, but it becomes tons of fun after that. (and work. Hahaha!) But if you enjoy it, that’s all that matters. 😀 And I think you have a nice style on your blog, too! Books and Munches. I think every booknerd can relate to that. Hee hee!

    7. Haha, same here! We all need some kind of energy-boost. Let us have our energy drinks! 😀


      I can never get too busy for that. Simply impossible. The only thing I’m ever busy with is books or work? So.. Yup, I have a problem, don’t I? [Already not looking forward to my list of Book Buying Shame I’ll have put together by the end of next year..] I do hope that logic works out for you, haha!

      True! It still feels like a lot of work sometimes but that’s mainly the periods I’m being my procrastinating self and not preparing any posts – like I’ve been doing this past week. I still have to write my posts for the upcoming week – OOPS.
      Aaw, thank you!! Haha, I didn’t really know whether or not many people would relate to it; I simply put together two things I love and discovered that bookworms and munches go together pretty darn well after a while. :p

    8. Hee hee! Thank you and best of luck with your book buying next year. 😉 It’ll be worth it.

      Hahaha! Same. I’ve become such a procrastinator and I literally have an alarm that goes off ALL DAY before my post needs to go up and I still forget about it. Hahahaa! I’m horrible. :p

      Best of luck with getting your posts up this week and keep being awesome! 😀 *goes to search for own munchies* Hee hee!

    9. Thank you!

      Hahah. I schedule my posts so they go up on their own, thank God. I don’t even know how I’d deal otherwise. But it also makes me forget about checking my scheduled posts once in a while – oops. :p

      Thank you!! *Reminds me that I might have to start prepping dinner.. Like.. now..*

    1. I diiid! I honestly really want to go to Prague now as well. I haven’t really been reading the sequel decently though. Yet! I’ve been picking up some romances and starting a buddy read and then focusing on Diverse December so.. Maybe in January I’ll read on, haha.
