What I read in November

What i read in November

We are edging ever closer to the end of the year and the end of my first reading challenge, in fact I think I am going to beat my target reads for the year, despite my reading having slowed down in this last third of the year.

November I managed three books and they were all really different yet really enjoyable reads.

Beyond the Moon - Catherine Taylor (gifted) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

You can read my full review here, but here's a brief summary, the book is set in two erras, modern day, and during world war 1. Louisa is in a psychiatric unit in 2017, after the death of her grandmother. The unit itself is a former convalescent home for injured soldiers in the great war, were an injured lieutenant Robert Lovett was treated after being injured in the battle of the Somme, somehow there paths cross, and a seemingly impossible relationship grows between the unlikely pair. 

The Immortalists - Chloe Benjamin ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

In 1969 the four Gold children in New york visit a psychic, who claims to foresee the dates of their deaths. The children to young for such things are deeply disturbed by what they individually learn and bury the information deep.

The story then goes on to cover each child's life and the decisions they make, and how they live. It's a really interesting concept, do the decisions we make shape our future or is it already written. If you new the date of your death? how would you live.

China rich girlfriend - kevin Kwan ⭐⭐⭐⭐

This is the second book in the trilogy, the first Crazy Rich Asians I read earlier in the year and enjoyed. The story continues the relationship of Rachel Chu a chinese American who knows nothing about her family history and Nick Young a member of one of the most prestigious and rich families in Asia. The Young family forbids Nick to marry Rachel accusing her of being a money grabber, Nick chooses love over family and money and lives happily with Rachel in the states. That is until Rachels true heritage is discovered and turns both their worlds upside down. 

This book is a surreal delve into the world of the crazy rich, their lavish lives and their need to belong to something bigger, rich isn't good enough for these Asians they need to be crazy rich to be taken seriously.

This month I have read three pretty diverse stories all great in their own way.

Will you be adding any of these to your TBR pile?
