What I Read in November

This winter weather has been so weird, one day it's 38 degrees and raining, the next day it's 74 and sunny. It's aggressive. November was a crazy month for me, but I FINALLY worked through all of my library holds, just in time to place a bunch more that will probably all hit at the same time. If you missed what I read in October, you can find that here! November was a crazy month for me, so I didn't read as many books as I would have liked to. I also got bogged down in one of them..

I didn't take any book related pictures this month, so here's a picture of Albus & a beer.

The Vine Witch - I got this one AND The Dressmaker's Gift from the Kindle First reads? Sometimes that newsletter ends up in my junk filter and I'll forget it's a thing for a while. You can also read this one on Kindle Unlimited, if you're using that! I really enjoyed this one. As I mentioned last week, I've been in a little bit of a rut with WWII books. Rut isn't the word, I just can't think of a better one. It's like you read one, then the library is like "oh you liked that, here are four more like it!" and I just stay upset.  Anyways. This was a fun switch. There are witches making the wine, which like, hello magic and wine? Sign. Me. Up. I'd like to be a vine witch. When I was pulling the link for this one I noticed it's been amended to "Vine Witch Series #1" so I'm excited to read the next book in the series too! I definitely recommend this if you're looking for something light with a little bit of a twist at the end!

The Dressmaker's Gift: This one also came from Kindle First Reads annnnd is on Kindle Unlimited. I thought I was out of WWII but I picked this one back in September, apparently. It was fine. It drags on a little bit, there are some things that are total stretches, and weird timelines that are a little hard to follow. I think I gave it four stars? It was a good story or whatever, I just couldn't get into it. It was well written and told, it's one of those things I can't put my finger on. It passed the time just fine. 

Three Act Tragedy POIROT IS BACK. We watched the new Murder on the Orient Express a couple weekends ago so I snagged another Poirot novel from the library. I love them all. I don't care if it makes me sound like an 80 year old grandma. I really thought I'd figured this one out, man. I thought I knew the motive, and then towards the end, I thought I knew who it actually was (that is to say, that I thought my original guess had been wrong but I'd guessed correctly the second time) and I DIDN'T. I was still surprised. I think that's why I love the Hercule Poirot stories so much. I never guess the outcome. So obviously, I give this one all the stars.

That's it for November, I just downloaded A Woman Is No Man which I'd been on the holds list for since April. I hope to take it extra easy in  December (lol) and maybe get some more reading done. As always, linking up for Show Us Your Books! What are you reading right now?
