Wrap Up: November and December 2019 and PopSugar Reading Challenge

Wrap Up Floral

Hello everyone! Happy New Year! I had a lot going on in the latter part of 2019 and while I wasn’t able to post as much these last couple of months, I have escaped the dreaded reading slump! In the past year, I started listening to audiobooks for the first time and surpassed my Goodreads challenge goal of 15 books by reading 20! It was also the second year in which I took part in the PopSugar Reading Challenge. This time around, I managed to read 16 books for the challenge!

Books Read

The Space Between Time

The Space Between Time by Charlie Laidlaw ⭐⭐⭐⭐

This is a moving contemporary novel and I would describe it as an unconventional coming-of-age story. It follows the life of Emma Rossini, the daughter of a beautiful loving mother and film actor father. While some heavy themes are explored in this book, it also has humour sprinkled throughout it.

My Sister, the Serial Killer

My Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I really enjoyed this dark satirical debut and will be posting my review soon.

Eleanor

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman ⭐⭐⭐⭐

This had been on my TBR for ages and I can see why it’s popular! Review to follow.
