Wrap-Up| Nov '18

November came and went in the blink of an eye. Where did it go?!
I took part in the Tome Topple readathon, submitted two assignment, begun my dissertation and I read quite a few books for my Working Class Fictions class, and have included them in this list because I really enjoyed them. 


Up the Junction
Nell Dunn

Goodreads

This is one of three books on this list that I had to read for a module that I'm taking. 
Really enjoyed this one, and the outlook of how women were viewed and were used by Nell Dunn as a conduit for the London Working Class during the 1960's.


The Gentlemen's Guide to Vice and Virtue
Mackenzie Lee
⭐⭐⭐⭐

Goodreads

I really enjoyed this one, both for its diverse rep but also for the romance that stole my heart. However, it didn't become a new favourite for me so couldn't earn those full five stars. 

Strange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer #1)
Laini Taylor
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Goodreads

I put this on my list last month because it was a reread and I had read 3/5, but I finished it this month. I enjoyed this, even more, the second time around and has cemented itself firmly in my top books list. 
Tony Hogan bought me an Ice Cream Float before he stole me ma
Kerry Hudson
⭐⭐⭐⭐

Goodreads

The second book in my wrap-up that I read for a module. I have so many complicated emotions tied to this book that I feel like I might have to do a full review of it. But if you have to know one thing - this book is proof that good representation is important in literature. I have never been so accutely aware of my own experiences as to when I was reading this book and the modern tradegy of events like this are still being repeated.


Muse of Nightmares (Strange the Dreamer #2)
Laini Taylor
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Goodreads

I actually can't sum up my emotions about this. Nope. My heart. Nope. I'm trying to write a review for it and struggling. So brace yourselves.

A Kestral for a Knave
Barry Hines

Goodreads

The third and final book that I had to read for a module that I was taking this semester.
