What have you been reading this week?
Remember when I said that November was going slowly? I was wrong. It’s actually going pretty quickly, which means it will be Christmas in no time. I’m not ready for that. I have so much shopping to do first. And so much reading. I thought that I was doing well on my reading this month but I’m definitely falling behind. I’m going to have make some strategic decisions to get everything finished in time.

I keep seeing trailers for Marvel’s Eternals and, despite everything, I can’t bring myself to be excited. The cast is amazing and I think it could be a good change from the usual superhero stuff. Still, I just didn’t seem to care. So, I decided to read a few graphic novels to try and amp myself up a bit. Did it work? Check out my post to find out.
- TUESDAY REVIEW – Shang-Chi (2021)
I’ve been talking a lot about my Marvel fatigue recently but it’s true. Looking at the list of films and shows that are coming out makes me feel exhausted. However, when this film came to Disney+ recently, I decided it was worth checking it out. After all, the trailer did look pretty awesome. Would it be a refreshing change from the same old Marvel movie or would it be another standard MCU story? Check out my review to find out.
- BOOK REVIEW –The Vegetarian by Han Kang
I’ve been meaning to read this book for years. It’s been sat on my shelf making me feel guilty for too long. So when I needed a V book for my November TBR, I knew that it was finally time to do this. I had always heard that this was a pretty heavy-duty book despite its short length but would it really be that hard to take? Head over to my review and you’ll see.
- The Fell by Sarah Moss
I expected to finish this in a night but it ended up taking longer. Not because it was long or hard to read. It was mostly because I had far too much to do this week that I wasn’t expecting. I just didn’t have the time to sit down and finish it. But I finally have and my review will be up tomorrow.
- Burncoat by Sarah Hall
Though I might not have officially started this when this post goes, up, this will definitely be my next read. I need short books to complete my reading challenge this month and this is one that I’m very excited about.
I’ve been pretty good again. I’ve got a couple of new books through NetGalley but nothing that has cost me any money. Hopefully, I can get through the rest of the year without buying much more.
- Cuckoo– I love Greg Davies and I’ve already watched the old series of Taskmaster enough this year. So, I decided that it worth rewatching this old sitcom. It’s not perfect but it’s a bit of fun. It definitely picks up in season 2 and 3 when Taylor Lautner replaced Andy Samberg. Not because Samberg isn’t funny but because the dynamic worked better.
