The books I read in October + November

A few weeks ago I planned to update you on the books I read in the weeks before. But then life happened and I never wrote that post. So here I am a few weeks late, in the last weeks I read some more books and I plan to talk about them soon. But let's start with the books I read in October and November. In the next weeks I plan to write reviews on all of the book, but this might take some time. 

I read 

"Moonlight over Manhattan" was a nice romance even though it didn't leave a lasting impression on me and the ending was a bit weaker than the beginning. 

The book by Sara Barnard is my favourite from this pile, I enjoyed the special story even though it wasn't as intense and emotional as expected.  I will definitely look into what Barnard will publish next. 

"Double booked for death" was a good cozy mystery, the book was a bit too easy to forget and that's why I don't plan to go on with the series. 

The books by Hannah West, Melissa Landers and Julie Murphy didn't work for me, issues with the plot development (Starflight), the world building (Kingdom of Ash and Briars) or the writing style (Dumplin') made it hard to get into a good reading flow and to enjoy the stories. Even though "Starflight" didn't work for me I enjoyed the author's writing style and humour, so I plan to read more by her in the future. 

And then there is the latest book by Stephanie Perkins. I enjoyed the parts of the book that concentrated on the characters and their relationship, the teen slasher elements didn't work for me. I knew before reading the book, that this would be problematic for me, so I wasn't surprised by my issues. 

In October and November I also read some ebooks, mostly romances, but nothing stood out for me, so let's not talk about the books.

Which books did you read and enjoy in the last two months?

My TBR pile (end of November 2017) | Only 15 unread books left!

If you have followed my blog for some time, you know that years ago I had a pretty big tbr pile. Around 100 unread print books plus even more unread ebooks were normal for me. When you look at how my tbr pile looks like right now, you can see at one glance that things have changed dramatically. 

I took the pictures at the beginning of the week and then I was down to 15 unread books, which is even for me a pretty low number, because I usually have more than eight unread ebooks. Right now I also have a very low amount of unread fiction novels at home. Many of the new releases in the last three months didn't interest me that much, so only a few books here and there moved into my home. Plus I didn't buy a lot of older books from my wish list, so that's why I have the low amount of unread fiction books I do.

I think that I will buy some new books until Christmas, but I'm not going to go crazy about it. I'm quiet comfortable with having a small tbr pile, I'm no longer stressing out about numbers in regards to the books I own, which makes me one happy and relaxed reader.

How does your TBR pile look like right now?

Books bought in October - November 2017

Hi everyone, after a little break I'm back. In the last weeks a lot was going on in my life and I didn't have much time to read and think about books. In the next weeks things should slow down. I'm hopeful that I will once again have more time to read and blog about books. 

In October and November (so far) I bought

As you can see I only bought a few books in the last weeks and only two of them are still on my TBR pile, which is btw right now very small (15 books in total). I'm very excited for "Renegades", I'm hopeful that the book will be as good as the stories in the Lunar Chronicle series are. The book by Jessica Cluess could work for me, but I'm not completely sure about it. And that's it. 

Which books did you buy in the last weeks?
