Two days, two belated stacks. โœŒ๐Ÿป If Iโ€™m also wearing a leather jacket right now, does that make me a rebel? ๐Ÿ˜Žโšก๏ธ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿป๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

For real though ๐Ÿ˜œโ€”this was my November wrap-up! โœจ๐Ÿ“šโœจ

โ€ข

Last month was a really good reading month for me! Not only did I finish quite a few more books than I have been as of late (9 ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป), but there were some pretty hefty reads in there. Particularly the 800 page behemoth of a novel, The Goldfinch. ๐Ÿ•Š And, there were some seriously magical powerhouses. โœจ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

I can say with all honesty that I havenโ€™t had a more pleasurable reading month in a long time. I really, reallyyy loved almost everything I read (/devoured). ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ–ค

โ€ข

The Goldfinch became by far my favorite book of the year, and, after The Unbearable Lightness of Being, perhaps my favorite book period.

โ€ข

Not pictured are two audiobook listens:ย 

So Lucky by Nicola Griffith (a Tournament of Books ๐Ÿ“longlister, brought to my attention by @armyofwords, and a really powerful read), and Girl Wash Your Hair by Rachel Hollis (the one book that was a total wash for me… har har ๐Ÿ˜œ… but really, that one was not my jam, nor what I expected going in).

In true mood reader fashion, I did not get to all of the books on my November list, but what I ended up with was ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป, so Iโ€™m more than happy with my choices. ๐Ÿ”ฎ๐ŸŒ

โ€ข

As I did last month, Iโ€™ve also included in the list (but not in the ๐Ÿ“ธ) books I began, but have yet to finish, and this time around those are all transferring over to my December TBR, because I LOVE THEM all.
