Monthly Wrap-Up: November 2017

wrap-up november

Hello Everyone!

Ahh! November has ended already and again I’m 2 books behind!! I had very stressful month because of personal reasons that affected reading and blog as well. Hopefully December will be better with life and blog. We decided a week ago to go back to my hometown for few weeks because of my health issues, so I took flight this morning with few books and laptop, and arrived at my mom’s place in Ahmedabad, Gujarat and I’m going to spend whole December with my parents.

I hope you all had cheerful November and wish you a fabulous December! 🙂

November in reading was like this-


Book I read and reviewed-


The King’s Peace by Kevin Hammond

Stars: 4/5

Dark fantasy. First book in Series of The Dark and the White series. This was actually good one, I can’t believe it has only handful of reviews on Goodreads. Only beginning was slow but the rest of the book was creative and gripping.

The Razvak Hunter (Razvak Series #1) by Arel B. Grant

Stars: 5/5

Elfish dark fantasy. Loved world building and great twist and turns specially from climax to end.


Paranormal / Romance-

Sleuthing with enemy

Sleuthing with the Enemy (Unnatural Alliances #2) by Danielle Hardgrave

Stars: 3.5/5

This book was interesting, sexy and super fast paced. Cover, Heroine and the Mystery of finding thief cut most of stars. 

Contemporary / Romance-


Jilted (Discovered by Love #1) by Carla Laureano

Stars: 5/5

Novella. cozy and perfect for beach read. Well written, well developed characters, perfect pace, clean romance and lovely story.

Historical Fiction / Romance-

pearl for my mistress

A Pearl for My Mistress by Annabel Fielding

Stars: 4/5

Historical and political romance. Book was different and interesting right from writing to concept.

Fiction / Women Fiction / Romance-

31 Miles: Can we ever win against ourselves? by Vinita Bakshi

Stars: 4.5/5

Loved story of Mansa, a happily married woman who actually started living a life in middle age. Brilliantly written with depth of emotion and well described characters.

And a Sixpence for Luck by Lilac Mills #BlogTour #Review #Giveaway @LilacMills @NeverlandBT

Stars: 5/5

Holiday themed, funny and refreshing book with sweet feel good touch. I simply loved this book. This was kind of book you can go blindly and never regret for picking.

Mystery / Thriller:

loose cannon

Loose Cannon by Jack Steele (A Detective Joe Stone Novel Book 1)

Stars: 4/5

Interesting, loved the way author wrote characters and premises, full of suspense and thrill. I recommend it to all who enjoys gangster and investigation stories.

Hi, I'm Yesha, an Indian book blogger. Avid and eclectic reader who loves to read with a cup of tea. Not born reader but I don't think I’m going to stop reading books in this life. “You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”


  • Melanie Noell Bernard

    My goodness! You read quite a few books. And I love your calendar! It’s so… clean. Hee hee! I know that sounds weird, but seeing a schedule that is devoted to just blogging is amazing to me. Is it perhaps part of a bujo (bullet journal) or is it just a calendar? 🙂

    • Books Teacup and Reviews

      Thank you, Melanie! I can’t read more than 8 books a month, if reading month is good without any interruptions I can manage 10.
      It’s just calendar but when I will have enough sheets, I’ll bind them making it journal of blog. That’s what I have thought for now. ☺️

      • Melanie Noell Bernard

        8 books is an average month?! I’m… just gonna curl up in a corner of shame now. Hahaha! I’m lucky if I finish 3 books a month and ten is more than even my best months. :p That’s so crazy that you can read so much! 😀
        Oh! That’ll be nice. I bought a nice planner thinking I’d use it for blogging and then it became such a hassle filling it out that it’s mostly empty now. *sigh* Kind of sad, but I have to be very choosey with my time and it’s really big so carrying it around with me was difficult. Still love your calendar! I couldn’t decorate mine if I tried. Hee hee!

        • Books Teacup and Reviews

          Oh don’t worry, I started with 3 books a month only. It took 2 years to reach to this speed, 8 books!😅 Plus I left job last year, nothing to do much. 🤐
          I use calendar as planner too. I fill it with pencil to keep track of blitz and tours and once post is up I try to decorate it, though it always look bad to me.

          • Melanie Noell Bernard

            BAHAHAHAHA! Two years later and I’m still only reading 3 books a month. :p Though, I am in school full time and often bring home studying, papers, and goodness knows what else. So, that cuts into my reading time like crazy. (and sometimes I prefer tv to books. Less to do. :p )

            Nooo! I think your calendar looks great. It’s very colorful, which makes it very easy to follow. 😀 My calendar was awful. I didn’t decorate or color or anything. It was very difficult to follow. Hee hee!

          • Books Teacup and Reviews

            You should feel good then! I envy those who could find reading time along with work and TV. Really! I also give more time to TV, it’s hard to let go awesome movies. 😁
            Thank you! ❤️ Ah, at least you made it. It doesn’t matter how it looks at the end. Credit goes to efforts you put. 😉

          • Melanie Noell Bernard

            Hahaha! Yes, that is very true, but I haven’t used my calendar in some time. I feel like I’m so busy that I don’t have time to use my Calendar. Hahaha!

            Right?! Movies are awesome! I have more movies than I do books. (Shh! Don’t tell the book blogger police :p )

          • Melanie Noell Bernard

            Hee hee! I don’t actually watch that many movies, to be honest… I wish I did, but I enjoy watching them with people and… my friends all live at least 1.5 hours away. 😦 Why do I make so many internet friends? *sigh*

  • Noriko

    Wow, you did wonderful, Yesha! It must have been an amazing month for you! Let’s hope December turns out to be as productive as November 🙂
