November had come and gone. That month really flew by, but that often happens as the end of the year approaches. Despite a large number of distractions this month, and not reading many days, I did manage to get a decent amount of reading done. With every book that I read, my enormous TBR shrinks just a bit more. November in books in the eleventh installment of my ongoing series highlighting the books that I read in a month.

November in books
This is the third time I have read this series. I still love it just as much as when I first read it. Honestly, I just wanted to read this again, especially after recently watching the anime. Plus, these are quick reads, perfect for a busy month.
Haruiro Astronaut by Ichigo Takano
It’s not often that you find single-volume manga. At least in my experience. This was a cute little high school love story and a very quick read. However, I still can’t figure out how the title relates to the story. This manga is found at the end of Orange: Complete Series Volume 2.
I read this book a good fifteen or more years ago and was wanting to revisit it. Especially since I read The Lions’ Legacy, which is unofficially the prequel to this book. While I enjoyed this one, much like the previous book, I didn’t like it as much as the first time. I’m still happy that I read it, as it gives an in-depth look at the struggles of conservation and reintegrating rescued animals back into the wild.
The first book in the second Warriors series. I have been looking forward to starting this series since finishing the first one. It did take me a little bit to remember who was who among the cats, remember all the details of past events and figure out who all the new cats were. Ignoring that little bump in the journey, I quite enjoyed this story. It’s fast-paced like the previous books and has the potential to be as good, if not better, than that first series. I look forward to continuing this series.
My husband has been suggesting I read this book for a while, and so, I figured November was a good month for that. I quite enjoyed reading this. This book goes beyond The Art of War, as it includes different interpretations, texts that were found many years later and other similar thoughts.
The fourth book in the Mist-Torn Witches series. This book was good and yet had a number of problems with it. One is that the title doesn’t make sense once you have read the book. Some of the character’s relationships are also fairly problematic, especially Amelia and Joramir’s. Even so, I’m actually slightly disappointed that this is the last book in the series. Especially since it’s clear that it was never intended to be the final book. There is still so much left unresolved, that I feel at a loss now.
The third book in the Knights of the Lunch Table series. This was by far the most predictable book in the series. I know it’s meant for kids and so the story can’t be too overly complicated, but in my opinion, things were just too plainly laid out right from page one. I’ll continue with this series, as my son enjoys it and we do chat about the book after we have read it, so that’s all the incentive I need to keep reading.

That brings my November in books to an end. I’m honestly surprised that I read as much as I did, as this was an extremely busy month, especially with NaNoWriMo happening.
