Read it or Skip it: November books!

Ah! Books, books, books and more books! Must be another installment of Read It or Skip It! Here are the books I read in the month of November, a month I dedicated to cleaning out my to-read shelf as much as possible. So, without further ado…

‘The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’ by Robert Louis Stevenson

Read it if you like an old-timey psychological thriller and British literature
Don’t skip it! It’s so short and I was amazed how much I liked it!

‘Sarah’s Key’ by Tatiana de Rosay

Skip it. It’s an interesting premise, but the narrative doesn’t quite deliver. Also, there were certain scenes that really upset me.

‘Gods Behaving Badly’ by Marie Phillips

Read it if you like cheeky twists on Greek mythology
Skip it if you don’t appreciate a dry, British sense of humor or cheesy endings

‘East of Eden’ by John Steinbeck 

Read it because it will make you a better human being. It’s amazing as everyone says.
Don’t skip it.

‘Slam’ by Nick Hornby

Read it if you like Nick Hornby and stories of teenage parents
Skip it if you hate skateboarding or teenage male protagonists

‘Norwegian Wood’ by Haruki Murakami

Read it if you like coming of age stories or always wanted to read Murakami and didn’t know where to start
Skip it if you’re squeamish to sexytimes, suicide, and mental illness

Not as many this month. East of Eden was a challenge, but so worth the time. The holidays are coming up and this gal has already finished all her Christmas shopping, which gives me loads of time to read. 🙂
