* I haven’t technically finished Wuthering Heights yet, but I’m 99.99% sure I’m going to finish it by the end of the day, and if I include it in this post that means I have to make myself finish it, right???
EDIT: I did it!
(Also, if you think I just scrolled through Goodreads until I found a random pink cover of Wuthering Heights to fit the aesthetic of the rest of my November books, you would be 100% correct.)
Best: The Absolutist by John Boyne
Runner up: An Arrow’s Flight by Mark Merlis
Worst: Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
NOVEMBER TOTAL: 9 books
YEARLY TOTAL SO FAR: 94 books (goal was 60)
The majority this month were 4 or 5 stars, so I can’t complain!
I’m currently reading Everything Here is Beautiful by Mira T. Lee. (Also The Lesser Bohemians by Eimear McBride which I’ve been reading for like four months and which I desperately hope I will have finished by the end of December.)
I’m trying to not be so rigid with my TBR as I’m naturally a mood reader, but I have so many ARCs that need my attention this month: The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin, Elmet by Fiona Mozley, Circe by Madeline Miller, I Am, I Am, I Am: Seventeen Brushes With Death by Maggie O’Farrell. In addition I’m hoping to get around to a couple of these: A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzie Lee, Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis, Days Without End by Sebastian Barry, Medea by Christa Wolf.
