November I am doing things a bit differently, partly because the two challenges I finished, I used ARCs to complete them, so they have full on reviews which I will link. I have exactly two challenges to complete in December, and I have picked the two books I am going to read for those challenges. We will see how well I do because I have so many books I want to knock out before the end of the year that have been calling to me. \
Anywho, here’s what was tackled in November.
Ban This Book by Alan Gratz
Completes Challenge #16: Read a banned book or frequently challenged book in your country.
Thoughts: I changed this challenge a little bit given that I’ve read so many challenged books that exist in Canada, and frankly there isn’t usually too many. So I decided I wanted to read a book about banned books and still count it for this challenge. Ban This Book by Alan Gratz is a great middle grade read that looks at banning books and what it does to education, and you can read my review here.
They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera
Completes Challenge #20: Read an LGBTQIA+ romance novel.
Thoughts: This book emotionally wrecked me and I feel like Adam Silvera is great at feeding on people’s tears. My best recommendation with this book is to make sure you have your tissue box handy, because the feels are going to come hard and fast. You can read my review here.
