November 2022 Book Favs

In November, I read 14 books and of those 14, there are 8 that were my favorites for the month.

My favorite this month were:

  • The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes – The first book in the fun and mysterious YA series. Avery Grambs is 17 and just inherited over $40 Billion dollars from the ultra wealthy patriarch of the Hawthorne family. Avery never knew Tobias Hawthorne and has no idea why he left her the majority of his money, businesses, and estates. Now she has to work with the 4 Hawthorne grandsons to unravel the mystery. It was such a fun read and I can’t wait to read the next book.
  • Twisted Hate by Ana Huang – The third book in the Twisted series follows Jules and Josh. It’s a deliciously good enemies to lovers book with some drama mixed in of course. Josh has trust issues still after everything that happened in Twisted Love. Jules has secrets from her past that have come back to haunt her. Can they both get past their issues to be together? Loved the book and I absolutely love Jules.
  • Twisted Lies by Ana Huang – The fourth and last book in the Twisted series. This one follows Stella and Christian. It’s a fake dating story with a dark romance spin and I loved it. I’m going to have a review up tomorrow!
  • The Vibrant Years by Sonali Dev – I loved this multigenerational novel that follows Bindu, Aly, and Cullie. Bindu, the mother-in-law and grandmother, is 65 and living her best life in her posh retirement community but has a past that she has been keeping secret since she was 17. Aly, the daugher-in-law and mother, is 47, dealing with the aftermath of her divorce still, and has been getting passed over for years at the news station she works at because of her age and ethnicity. Cullie, the granddaughter and daughter, is 25 and a tech genius. Her app for meditation was a huge hit but when investors threaten to make users start paying for her app she needs to come up with a new app as soon as possible to appease them. This is a great story about family, love, and self-discovery.
  • November 9 by Colleen Hoover – I loved this novel more than I thought I would. It follows Ben and Fallon. They meet on November 9, the day Fallon is moving to New York from California. Both 18 at the time, they decide to not exchange any contact info but to meet each other every year on November 9 until they are 23. The book had frustrating, beautiful, and heartbreaking moments, but I loved it.
  • Josh & Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren – This was my second Christina Lauren book and I really liked it. Josh and Hazel were acquaintances in college and years later realize that Hazel’s best friend is Josh’s sister. Both not having much luck in the dating department they decide to set each other up on blind dates, ignoring the fact that they are perfect for each other. The novel was funny and a great romcom. I absolutely loved Hazel!
  • Glow by Raven Kennedy – This is the fourth book in the Plated Prisoner series and it was so good! It picks up right where Gleam left off. Slade helps Auren learn how to control her power, other kingdoms are after Auren after what happened with Midas, and the love between Slade and Auren deepens and is sooo good.
  • Scarred by Emily Mcintire – This is the second book in the Never After series, which can all be read as standalones as there are no interconnecting stories or characters. It is a twisted take on The Lion King and a dark romance. Tristan Fassa is the “scarred prince” and is secretly leading a rebellion to overthrow his brother, King Michael. Sara Beatreaux is betrothed to Michael, but secretly planning to take down the Fassa family because she blames them for her father’s death. Despite their plans, Tristan and Sara can’t ignore the connection and chemistry they have between each other. I loved this book and liked it more than the first book in the series, Hooked.

Those were my favorite reads for the month! Did you love anything you read this month?
