November has been a shit show. Simply put. Finals are coming, I feel like I’m dying, and I regularly think about just dropping out of college and joining the circus. The only thing that stops me is the knowledge that I don’t have any talents useful to a circus. That, and the knowledge that I am so close to graduation that if I was gonna drop out, I should have done it a few semesters ago and saved myself the student loans. So it looks like I’m getting that degree after all. Unless of course, stress kills me first.
But, quarter-life crisis aside, let’s talk about books! As always, I read more than expected, considering all the work I have to do. I honestly don’t even know where I find the time for this. Like, what are my priorities?
But who cares, moving on. Here’s what I did this month!
Books I read
The Last Magician – Lisa Maxwell – ★★★★☆ (4.5)
The Dream Thieves – Maggie Stiefvater – ★★★★☆
Whichwood – Tahereh Mafi – ★★★☆☆
The First Kiss Hypothesis – Christina Mandelski – ★★★☆☆ (2.5)
Blue Lily, Lily Blue – Maggie Stiefvater – ★★★★☆
Renegades – Marissa Meyer – ★★★☆☆
Waking Gods – Sylvain Neuvel – ★★★★★
Well, considering that I will have finals in the second week of December, meaning that I will be studying for the entire first week of December, next month isn’t looking too great. But, let’s see what I manage to get out of it.

Random Things I Did
Literally nothing. Like at all. Nada.
What I’m Doing Next Month
Probably just taking a lot of exams and writing a lot of essays. Yay. Hopefully, I can read after I’m done with it all. Unless, of course, I’m dead because of all the stress this semester has put on me.
Next Month’s TBR
The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater
Red Rising by Pierce Brown
Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas
Every single one of these books has been up here for like the past four months, and here they are. At this point, it’s not even funny. But let’s see what happens. Maybe after finals, I’ll be motivated to read. Perhaps not. We shall see.
Until next month!
