November Wrap Up

I had a pretty good reading month as I tried very hard to catch up to my Goodreads goal. Reaching said goal is really hard when I don't want to admit to reading a lot of the books that I did actually read.  Also, sorry this is so late. My dumbass thought I had already posted this, but apparently, I hadn't.

The Birthday Party 

I gave this play 3 stars. It was really fucked up and yet still such an important allegory. If you're interested in plays and allegories I would suggest giving this one a read. 

The Good Place 1 and 2

I gave this show 3.5 stars. I needed something to watch after having finished Brooklyn Nine-Nine and this was just what I needed. It wasn't quite as good, but I still enjoyed having it on.

Blood Vow 

I gave this book 5 stars. Man, this month I just sped through the rest of these two series'. In November I read a couple and at the beginning of December, I've sped through a couple more. A really good book highly recommend. 

The Odyssey 

I gave this book 4 stars. I liked this one more than the Iliad. The Iliad was a bit depressing and this one was a lot less so. 

The Grinch

I gave this movie 4 stars. I liked it. I know a lot of people don't, but I still do. I appreciated that the Grinch treated his dog a lot better in this one. Something that always bothered me about the other two versions of the Grinch is that the Grinch is always terrible to Max who does not deserve that.


I gave this book 5 stars. This was so unexpected. I wasn't planning on reading this one, but when I saw it on the Goodreads best of 2018 list I decided to check it out and I absolutely loved it.

American Horror Story: Apocalypse

I gave this season 3.5 stars. I was really happy to finally get a Coven/Murder House crossover, but there was only one episode that really had Murder House and the resolutions to previous issues were taken back in the finale so it really didn't even matter what happened during the Murder House episode. Still not my least favorite season though.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - Film and screenplay 

I gave the screenplay and the movie 4.5 stars. It took me a literal year to finally read and watch Fantastic Beasts. I don't know why it took me so long. I was finally encouraged to finally go see it when my friend asked if I wanted to go see Crimes of Grindelwald and of course I said yes. I finished watching this right before I went to the movie theatre. I did the exact same thing with Jurassic World.

Crimes of Grindelwald

I gave this movie 4.5 stars. I got to go see an early screening of this and they gave out pins and it was really exciting. I honestly didn't even realize it was an early screening until after. The movie theatre I got to just keeps showing movies early and I don't know why but I'm here for it. I loved that in this one we got more in-depth with Newts relationship with Leta. From what we heard in the first movie Leta sounded like a pretty crappy person, but in this one, we find out so much more information that deepens her character. I'm still crying over other things that happened during that movie concerning other characters, but no spoilers.


I gave this book 5 stars. I just started bingeing this authors works, I read a total of 8 of her novels this month and they were all excellent. I would suggest this one to fans of ACOTAR.

The Queen of All That Dies 

I gave this book 4 stars. This was probably my favorite of all the series' I read by her this month. I read it as fast as possible and yet I still want more.

Top Girls 

I gave this play 3 stars. I can't say that I enjoyed reading it. It was confusing to read, but it would probably be really awesome to see being performed. There is almost no stage direction and all the characters speak over each other. I would suggest skipping the actual reading of the play and just go see a production.

The Queen of Traitors 

I gave this book 4 stars. As sequels go, this was a fantastic one. 

The Aeneid 

I gave this book 3 stars. Probably my least favorite epic. I really didn't care for Aeneas and his story really didn't do anything for me.

The Queen of All that Lives 

I gave this book 5 stars. My favorite book in the series, I had such an awesome time reading this. What I loved about this series is that none of the books let me down. They kept gradually getting better but there was never a huge jump in between them.

Reaping Angels 

I gave this book 3.5 stars. It was really fucking cheesy. I had a bit of a hard time reading it because it was so cheesy. 

The Unearthly 

I gave this book 4 stars. This was like Rhapsodic 2.0, but with a vampire instead of a fae. 

The Coveted 

I gave this book 4 stars. I hated how there was a love triangle just sort of thrown in. This one especially makes me really uncomfortable because guy number 2 is creepy.

Princess Switch

I gave this movie 3.5 stars. I love Vanessa Hudgins but I hate the way she pronounces schedule. I'm just not big on romantic Christmas movies. I didn't like Love Actually and I only tolerate The Holiday because my sister loves that movie.

The Chosen 

I gave this book 3 stars. Everyone just lost their fucking minds in this book. Spoiler alert: Vishous was thinking of cheating on Jane, Quinn tried to fucking shoot Layla. Honestly, not J. R. Ward's best work.
