look who’s back. back again. (november wrap up except there’s nothing really to wrap up)

Hello everyone! Look who it is! Missed me? Probably not. Anyway, I have decided to grace you all with my presence here again, which I’m sure you all are very happy about hm? So, now that I’m here, let’s catch up shall we? How are you all? I’ve actually missed being here amongst all you wonderful bookish people, and I am so happy to be back again. What have you all been up to? I need a good catch up with you all, I missed you! So, shall we talk a little about my hiatus? Why not?

So we all know why I left for a bit (exams -_-) and now that those have sort of calmed down (I wouldn’t be back if they hadn’t) I thought now would be a wonderful time to wake up from my blogging hibernation and make my return. Good talk huh? I mean, there’s not much to say on the hiatus front besides that πŸ˜…

Well, now it’s December (I know, very observant of me to notice) which is so so insane. In less than a month it’s going to be 2022. Anyhow, let’s talk books shall we? Or more so, let’s talk about the books I didn’t read. This month has been my lowest when it comes to books I read. Should I tell you? I read 2 books! 2!! And one of them was one of the worst books I’ve read this year! 😭 Let’s talk about this.

The first book I read in November was This Is My Truth by Yasmin Rahman. It was a really really good read, and I ended up giving it 3 and a half stars, which may seem low but it isn’t. I really liked the main character and the way that she describes everything around her. I’m not gonna lie I didn’t really like Huda towards the end, but it’s okay. Also the hijabi rep was everything haha πŸ˜€

This though. This was not it. I’m tempted to say this is the worst book I read this year, but I also read We Were Liars this year too, and that book has top spot right now. Or bottom spot depending on how you see it. Anyways, this book was horrific. I genuinely hate being negative about books, but this book was nothing but bad. The writing reminds me vaguely of my writing in 5th grade, and by some horrid turn of fate I hated the characters. For those of you who don’t know, my favourite movie of all time is Dead Poets Society, and this book made me have to go back and rewatch this movie because I was starting to not like the characters. The writing made me want to just shrivel up and never read again, it was that bad. That’s saying a lot. A lot scenes where just completely messed up, and you could clearly see where the movie lines stopped and the author’s began. Or maybe I’ve just seen this movie too many times. Honestly though. I hated every second of it, but I wanted to keep going. It was like watching a car crash. Disastrous, but you can’t look away.

So now that I’m done complaining for now (this isn’t the last you’ll hear of DPS The Book), let’s talk about my TBR. I haven’t set a proper TBR because I’m foreseeing a lot of studying and work this month as well however I will be having a 2 week break which I’ll be using to read as much as I can because I miss it. So, as my December hopefuls:

The Invisible Life Of Addie LaRue

Furyborn

Normal People

Dune

Lolita

Curtain

The Book Thief (reread)

Conversations With Friends

I obviously won’t be able to get to all of them this month since that’s quite a lot, but they are just recs for me to enjoy this month.

That’s all for now then from me. I’m really excited to be back, and I can’t wait to keep writing posts πŸ™‚ Let’s chat in the comments!

  2. I was in blog hibernation for the past couple of months too, so welcome back! Your review of Dead Poet’s Society made me laugh πŸ˜‚ I feel like books based on movies tend to just be bad all around. I only read one once of an 80s movie because I was curious, Some Kind of Wonderful, and it was not well written at all. I didn’t hate it…but that’s probably just because I loved the movie so much and wasn’t expecting a lot from the book.
