📖 🎄 When your room is 75% books...and they are arranged by color, the transition from literary to holiday decor is quite easy. The moral of the story is: use the resources you have to spread a little Christmas cheer. (Shoutout to @lizzie_m_muller for helping me improvise a star!) 📖🎄 Did you include any bookish holiday cheer in your home this year?
November was busy, but I am so thankful for memories I created. Somewhere in between all of the excitement I was able to read a total of 15 books. Little Fires Everywhere was my favorite for the month, and The Golden Compass was the book that surprised me the most. You can see all of my ratings on Goodreads! What was your favorite read of the month?
I have to admit, I was more than hesitant to pick up @pronounced_ing’s sophomore novel, Little Fires Everywhere. Her first novel, Everything I Never Told You, left a bad taste in my mouth with the narrative style, the characters without redeeming qualities, and just the plot as a whole. When my in-person book club chose it as the November pick, I begrudgingly picked up a copy to read. I even put off reading it until the day of the book club, but by the time I was through the first chapter I was kicking myself for waiting so long. Little Fires Everywhere shines everywhere I felt Ng’s first novel fell flat. I’m not usually a fan of complicated family novels, but this is one I truly enjoyed. There’s at least one character in here for everyone, and the plot was built for discussions. It only took me 24 hours to read this book, and it’s going to be in my top ten of 2017 at least. I’m going to spoil my review and tell you that I’m giving it 4.5 stars, but you can check out the full review to see why. Link in bio! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 What book pleasantly surprised you this year?
I’ve always been taught to be thankful for all of the blessings I’ve been given. Even my alma mater prides itself on being “ever grateful.” So today, I want to express how thankful and grateful I am for the little bookish corner of the internet that we call home. Book people truly are the best people. Happy Thanksgiving, folks, and thanks for bringing such joy and fun to my life.
