This month I was able to work my way through a couple more books than previous months. I also read two more Wattpad stories as well, which I'll talk about at the end. Anyway, here's my 'November Wrap-Up'...
Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
Date Started - ??/??/2016
Date Finished - November 2016
I read this as part of my English topic this past term , but missed a few lessons so I had to do some catch up reading at home. This is why I thought I may as well include it here.
I don't really have anything to say about Of Mice and Men as it was something I had to read and I didn't really think too much about what I personally thought, but I do have to say that I did enjoy evaluating and digging a bit deeper during the topic.

Desolation (Demon Road #2) by Derek Landy
Date Started - 1/11/2016
Date Finished - 27/11/2016
This is the sequel to Demon Road, which I read last year and really loved. This book had been on my TBR for quite a few months until I decided to pick it up and I'm glad that I did.
Just like the first book, Desolation did not disappoint. It was a bit more violent and gruesome as I expected, but it was still really good. Despite how long it had been since I'd read the first book, I didn't have any problems getting back into the story or understanding the characters.
It was action-packed and was just the perfect sequel to Demon Road.
Rate - 4-4.5/5

The Adventures of Fawn: 'Til The Last Snowflake Falls (#1) by Al. E. Boy
Date Started: 17?/11/2016
Date Finished: 20/11/2016
I was sent a copy of this for review as part of a blog tour, so I do have a full review already up, which I'll link below.
It was a good childrens book and a good read for this time of year. There was a range of different characters, who all had something unique about them. The book focused a lot on friendship and how important it is. Overall, I did enjoy this book and will include the synopsis below.
Synopsis: Legendary reindeer,Comet and Vixen, have a daughter named Fawn. Fawn yearns to explore the world outside Santa's Village, but her parents tell her she's much too young to go off by herself.
"I want some fun and excitement! I don't care how dangerous it is!"
When the young reindeer utters these words, and begins sneaking out each day...she has no idea what's in store for her!
Along the way, Fawn does make friends with a snow bunny and a short snowman...Snowboy. But all is not so rosy, as she comes to realize the dangers her parents warned her about, are actually very, very real!
Hungry, wild animals, a deadly North Pole blizzard, and dangerous strangers capturing animals to sell to a New York City zoo are just some of the situations she's going to have to face.
It's going to be an incredible, exciting, and unforgettable week!
Rate - 3.5/5
