November 2023 in life, books, and blog #MonthlyWrapUp

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a lovely November. For me, as you might have guessed been a busy month and I hardly had time to blog but thankfully I could read as much as I expected. Check out how my November 2023 in life, books, and blog was here –

November 2023 in Life

It was my kid’s birthday month. She is 5 yrs old now and she has achieved almost all the milestones for the kid of her age. We still need to work on her conversation skills but otherwise, we are really happy with how she has grown.

It’s been a busy month with my in-laws staying with us (they are still here by the way and are not going back until Feb end or the beginning of March! 😐) but we can’t do anything about it than just accept this change.

There was a wedding in the family. I have been busy with it since the 20th of Nov. Thankfully it’s over now but we enjoyed that one week with juicy gossip and dramas.

With this new job, I get less and less time for blog but so far the job seems easy enough only drawback is the pressure that comes with deadlines, and as I’m not used to that kind of pressure, it will take me a while to find my feet.

It’s also making me change my schedule with reading and blogging. It seems I can do only one of it along with the job during weekdays and I can barely look at social media. I get time on weekends so I’m writing all posts on weekends only. I will bloghop whenever I can but I cannot do it as regularly as before, I hope you don’t mind with that.

On the bright side, I could read books. Not as many as usual but more than I expected as I honestly thought I might not be able to read more than 3 or 4 books.

Mad Sisters of Esi is imaginary literary sci-fi with beautiful descriptions and complicated world but for me it was confusing, tedious, and too slow-paced. There is a sure audience for this kind of literary sci-fi, but I’m not one of them. ⭐⭐.5

Hunt on Dark Waters is an enjoyable, entertaining, and adventurous portal fantasy with pirates and spicy romance. While I enjoyed the world, I didn’t like repetition for theme and layers but it’s a good start to the series and I would like to see what comes in the second book. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

The Winter of The Witch is an epic conclusion of The Winternight Trilogy. I buddy read it with Toni and we both enjoyed the characters, the world, and the plot. It’s a perfect blend of Russian folklore, history, religion, and culture. My review will be up next week.⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Spring at the Little Duck Pond Cafe is cute, lovely, and delightful chick-lit that would warm your heart in just a few pages. It’s the perfect book to read over breakfast with a coffee or two. I don’t have any fixed complaint with this except I wanted more. Maybe more romance and drama. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Bloody Heart is story of Dante and Simone. I’m enjoying this series. This is the best book in this series as it was predictable and I didn’t like Simone that much even though I could understand her but otherwise, this is sure an enjoyable fast-paced second chance mafia romance that I recommend to fans of this series and author. I think I’ll rate this ⭐⭐⭐.5 My review will be up next week.

Plans for December

None so far!

I hope to get some kind of routine with job and I can also fit in reading and blog with it.

Thankfully there is no social events this month so I might have more time to read. I plan to read at least 6 books in December including the tome – The Day of Fallen Night. Me and Toni are starting it around the 17th of this month.

Thank you for reading! Let’s chat..,
