November Wrap Up | Faith

The first book I read this month was for school, and this book was Animal Farm by: George Orwell. I have always wanted to read something by George Orwell, and when I heard that we were going to be reading this in my English class, I was really excited. I can't say that I was completely enthralled with this book, although I really did love the themes and symbolism in this book. I would rate this a 3 out of 5 stars.

A problem I have with classics is that I always feel obligated to give them a high rating just because it's a classic. So I feel really bad if I give one a 3 or below. Does anybody get this?

The second book I read was the illustrated version of Harry Potter and The Philosophers Stone. I love Harry Potter and getting to experience it with the illustrations  is awesome. I almost feel so privileged to get a chance to experience the release of every book in the years to come because that is something that I missed out on. I would rate this book a 5 out of 5 stars.

The third book I read this month was Fight of the Ivy by: Amy Bledsoe. I was sent this book by Amy in exchange for an honest review. You can read my review HERE.

You should go read the review!! Faith's reviews are the best :) - Raquel

The fourth book I read was Everything, Everything by: Nicola Yoon. The main reason why I read this was because Nicola Yoon was our November Author of The Month, and Raquel had said that she loved this book. I really loved the pictures, I just felt like this made the story so interactive. Also The Little Prince is one of my favourite classics so I was pretty excited when I saw some references. I would rate this a 4 out of 5 stars.
