November Wrap-Up & December TBR!

     Hello and welcome back to Mallory Books! Today I'll be sharing the books I managed to read in November, and the books I want to read in December. Although I was unable to finish a lot of books in November, I only need four more books to compete my Goodreads Challenge!

November Wrap-up

     November was a very hard month for me. I was unable to read as much as I usually do for certain reasons. I did complete two books I'm the hectic month. 

  1. Born at Midnight by C. C. Hunter - I REALLY enjoyed this book. It follows sixteen year old Kylie Galen who is sent to a camp for troubled teens after her parents divorce, or so she thought. When she arrives she notices the other teems aren't normal, in fact they are freaks! Then, she realizes maybe she is too. On her journey of finding out who- or rather what- she is, she makes friends and falls in love. 5/5 stars for me! I loved the mysterious/supernatural feel to this book! 
  2. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher - This follows a teen boy named Clay. He receives a mysterious package addressed to him. He opens the box only to find that it contains thirteen cassette tapes with numbers painted on them. As he listens to the first one he immediately recognizes the voice to be Hannah Baker, but that can't be right because she is dead. She committed suicide not to long ago. The tapes were sent to thirteen people who were the reason why she did it. Clay wonders what he could have done to end up on the list, the only thing he knew about Hannah was that she was in love with her. We ride an emotional roller coaster with Clay as he listens to all the tapes, and realizes everything Hannah went through. He began hating people for the things they did. When he got to the tape that Hannah started with his name he finds out the truth. This emotional story was definitely a 5/5 star story. 

December TBR

     I plan on doing a lot of reading in December! I can't believe it is already here! It feels funny looks out to see the snow on the ground and the Christmas tree in my living room! Here are the books I want to read in this wintery month!


  1. Awake at Dawn by C. C. Hunter- this is the sequel to Born at Midnight so I won't be sharing the synopsis. I'm really exited to plunge back into this world!
  2. The Harry Potter Series by J. K. Rowling- All seven books, yes, all seven!! Who knows if I can complete this crazy goal, but I'm up for the challenge. I will be participating in the #harryxmastoyou readawatchalongathon that Youtuber Maureen Keavy is hosting with some other youtubers. We will be tackling the task of watching all seven books and eight movies! 
  3. Legend by Marie Lu - I recently got a whole lot of new books (haul soon!) and legend was one of them. I know very little about the story other than it is dystopian and in dual-perspective. I've heard nothing but good things from my friends who have read it! Possibly a new favorite? 
     
     That is all I have today for you guys! Please comment what you read in November and your December TBR. If you enjoyed this post don't forget to follow my blog and on bloglovin' ( link on the side) I hope you enjoyed this!

     When I was first asked to do this post, I had a completely different theme planned. But in light of recent events that have happened in my personal life, I knew the only thing that seemed relevant was Friendship. If I could have a Loot Crate with anything I ever wanted inside, friendship seems like the perfect theme.


Item #1     As a proud book blogger, I couldn't have a subscription box without a book. When it came to the topic of friendship the first book that came to my mind was none o…

My 2018 in Books So Far...

Hello booklovers! I decided that a wrap up of what I have read in 2018 so far would be a great way to jump back into my blog! This year started out as amazing reading year for me already. While towards the end of February I did start to dwindle off some with reading, I am still happy with what I have accomplished so far! So without further ado...


JANUARY #1- Through the Woods by Emily Carroll

I started off 2018 with some Graphic Novels. This one was so interesting and unique. Some of the stories gave me chills! I couldn't stop reading. IT was just the right amount of creepy and beautiful. The art was so amazing and I absolutely loved the color schemes.





Hamilton Book Tag

The musical, Hamilton, has been my favorite thing for over a year now. I have been utterly obsessed and I even give it credit for me passing my AP History exam. Considering all this, I thought it was about time I do the Hamilton Book Tag! This tag was created by Maureen Keavy.  Also, if you haven't listened to Hamilton yet, One, What are you even doing wit your life? Two, Go listen!

1. The Room Where It Happens: A book world you would put yourself into


     The first answer that came to my head was Harry Potter, obviously. But, if I'm trying to be unique I would have to say the A Court of Thorns and Roses series, more specifically, The Night Court, for obvious reasons.

2. The Schuyler Sisters: An Underrated Female Character


     Seriously why are all my answers automatically Harry Potter? I recently binge watched all the Harry Potter movies over Winter Break with my sister, so maybe that is why. Its no secret that Luna Lovegood is one of my favorite characters from the series…
