I think we can all agree the November went by way too fast, and now we’re down to the last month of the year! I can’t believe 2022 is coming to a close, it only seemed like yesterday when the year started. But I guess we feel this almost every year. So let’s talk about books!

Ever since the “ber months” started, my weekends became really busy. I’m almost always out on errands or visiting family and relatives, so that’s why I’ve been reading less this past couple of months. But no pressure, at least I still get to finish a book or two.

So in November, I got through the third book in the Trials of Apollo series by Rick Riordan which is probably my favorite book in the series so far! I still can’t stop thinking about it and I can’t get over the sudden turn of events that has happened in this installment. I rated it a 5 out of 5! I’ll probably finish the series in the first quarter of 2023, just in time before the new Percy Jackson adventures come out.

The next book that I read was A Stranger in the House by Shari Lapena, and though I’ve heard quite a number of criticisms about her books, I still enjoyed her writing-style. A Stranger in the House is my second Shari Lapena book and she’s instantly becoming one of my favorite authors because her books are not only easy to read, but also very entertaining and such a page-turner. I rated gave it a 4 out of 5 stars on Goodreads!

I also started my first Mary Higgins Clark novel, No Place Like Home, in November and I’m looking to finish it in the first week of December. It’s quite something and very different from the suspense thriller I’ve read in the past. I guess the writing-style is a trend during her time, and though it’s quite a slow burn type of book, I find myself enjoying the book. I can’t wait to find out how it ends!


How was your November TBR? What are you looking forward to reading in December?
