I know I missed my November Good Reads, but I had such a busy holiday season and wasn’t able to read as much as I wanted. But I still wanted to go over the book I did manage to read in November and the books I read in December.
The Rules of Magic
In the beginning of this book I found it hard to really commit to it. I didn’t see a clear direction for the story and admittedly put it down in favor of another book. But, I tried again and pushed through. Once the story started getting more in-depth with the characters I could not put it down.
This is a story about love, sacrifice, and the bond between siblings who are each very different. I don’t think I have ever read a book this morose though. There’s death and heartache throughout the book, but there was something about the writing that kept me reading. I would totally recommend this book to a friend.
The Bromance Book Club
Oh wow! I loved reading this book. It was witty, and charming, and goofy, and sweet all throughout the pages of this story. It was a charming spin on a busy husband changing and trying winning back the affection of his wife. This book easily made me laugh and was a story that seemed real. The character development was great and it had a flow that made following the story simple. The friend and family dynamic was also very believable and I often read parts that made me think of certain people in my life saying the exact same thing.
When there is a refreshing story that actually evokes laughter as I read it I always recommend it to a friend or family member. I have already done so for this book and I’m waiting on their opinion of the story! Definitely a must read.
The Bookish Life of Nina Hill
I love a good bookstore romance and I ready enjoyed this story. It was cute and full of banter that kept me giggling throughout the book. When I was reading I actually found myself inspired to alphabetize my own library (which by the way, took all night)! There were adorable friendships and relatable rivalries that kept adding to this stories charm.
I would absolutely recommend this book to a friend! It definitely makes you thankful for that you have and eager to go out and accomplish more with yourself. I’m currently looking into new activities and groups to join to broaden my interests.
There we have it!
These were the books that I did manage to squeeze in last November and December. They were on my TBR and I’m so happy I was able to check them off of the list! As always, let me know if you have any recommendations or if you just have something to say about the books listed.
Until next time, happy reading!
