Bookish | Wrappin’ Up November

November was a pretty decent reading month! Which is especially surprising since I also participated in National Novel Writing Month, uploaded impromptu vlogs on my Rocket Reads channel, while going to school and working my normal schedule. I actually don’t know where I found the time to do all of this. I’ll have to check my pockets later to see if there is any left over (badum tiss).

As you can see, I only rated one book at 5 stars on Goodreads. I had pretty positive feelings about most of these, but for the most part found much of what I was reading deeply flawed in some sense or another. I also read a helluva lot of single issue comics– I promise to bring back another Comic Books post in the month of December. Because wow, do we have a lot to catch up on.
