November is the beggining of the winter air. A time to settle down and reflect. A time of shopping and getting ready for Christmas and a time for reading. 

This month, I have had the pleasure to be on the recieving end of five lovely books. So without further ado, here is my November book haul!

The Summoning, The Awakening, and The Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong 

I was so excited to find The Summoning trilogy all together at a thrift store. I had wanted to read these books for a very long time and I was estatic to finally add them to my collection!

Chloe Saunders sees dead people. Yes, like in the films. The problem is, in real life saying you see ghosts gets you a one-way ticket to the psych ward. And at 15, all Chloe wants to do is fit in at school and maybe get a boy to notice her. But when a particularly violent ghost haunts her, she gets noticed for all the wrong reasons. Her seemingly crazed behaviour earns her a trip to Lyle House, a centre for disturbed teens.

At first Chloe is determined to keep her head down. But then her roommate disappears after confessing she has a poltergeist, and some of the other patients also seem to be manifesting paranormal behaviour. Could that be a coincidence? Or is Lyle House not quite what it seems…? Chloe realizes that if she doesn’t uncover the truth, she could be destined for a lifetime in a psychiatric hospital. Or could her fate be even worse…? Can she trust the other kids in the home, and does she dare reveal her dark secret?

A Tragic Kind of Wonderful by Eric Lindstrom

I had recieved an arc of A Tragic Kind of Wonderful earlier this month and I absolutely loved it!

Check out my review here.

Check out my A Tragic Kind of Wonderful inspired poem here.
Go Ask Alice by Anonymous 

Go Ask Alice has been a book on my mind for a very long time. The fact that it is a true diary written by a girl who committed suicide saddened and intrigued me. I hope to read this book soon and relay my thoughts with the reverence that a story like this deserves. 

What books are a part of your November Book Haul? Are any of the books I’ve meantioned on your reading list? If you have read any of these books what did you think? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

-Till next time!

  1. Go Ask Alice is a very good book. I have read that and Jay’s Journal. I recommend that one next because it is also a very intense diary. I haven’t read any others, but I think you’ll enjoy that one for how powerful and sad it is.
    Hope you like A Tragic Kind of Wonderful!
