Hi everyone! We are so close to the end of the year, I cannot believe it. I, for one, am seriously looking forward to the end of the semester where I can finally get some real relaxation in. That being said, November was a good month for me, and I hope it was for you as well.
One of the many reasons it was so great was because I had an amazing reading month. Thanks to Babel, I was able to get back into actively reading again. I was able to finish 8 books total, and I deeply enjoyed so many of them. I was still pretty busy this month, so a lot of my reading was done in the form of audiobooks. However, I read some truly amazing books this month. Somehow most of those amazing books were pretty serious, so it was not a month of lighthearted reads. Rebounding after my last two months in romance-land perhaps?
The quality of reading took a slight downturn at the end of the month, but the many amazing books I read for the first 2/3 of the month make up for it. Some of my favorites from this month were Babel by R. F. Kuang (of course), Know my Name by Chanel Miller, and How the Other Half Eats by Priya Fielding-Singh. That being said, I can basically recommend (almost) any of the books I have listed under the cut!

What I Wrote
Just like I got back into the swing of reading this month, I got back into blogging this month! I managed to write multiple posts I am really proud of. My favorite is one that has been in the works for a while about sustainable reading practices. I also loved Babel so much that I couldn’t help but write a review for it. I would love it if you want to check out any of those posts!
As we are reaching the end of the year, I am starting to reflect about what changes and improvements I want to make to the blog, so don’t be surprised if there are some changes in the coming months! It won’t be anything major, I am just looking at ways to make my content even better.
Thank you so much for reading! What was your favorite book this month? Let me know in the comments below.
