November 2019 Wrap Up

It's time for another monthly wrap up and this one is, as the title suggests, for November 2019. It was a good reading month but I hope to do better in December as I am a little bit behind on my Goodreads Challenge.

Let's see together the books I read this month.

Serpent & Dove - Shelby Mahurin

This is a book that I wasn't expecting to like based on its synopsis, but I loved it and became one of my favorites.

Help Wanted, Must Love Books - Janet Summer Johnson & Courtney Dawson (ill.)

This is a cute little picture book. It has beautiful illustrations and the story is so sweet. It's main theme is the special bond between a father and his daughter and the importance of family time.
I highly recommend this picture book.

It comes out in March 2020. - I received an ARC of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

The Cruel Prince - Holly Black

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black, the first book in The Folk of Air series is full of hype but let me tell you that the hype is real in this case.
Magic, fairies and politics all in one book. What else do you need?

Aesop's Fables - Aesop

I have read a collection of Aesop's Fables before (as a child) and I found it very interesting. Reading it as an adult is still interesting but I think more suited for kids.However, there are very good messages coming through and some of them contain life lessons.This particular collection is very good as it contains a very good selection of the fables.

Where's Spot? - Eric Hill

I just love this book!!
It was one of my favorites when I was growing up and now it is time to pass it to my daughter. It's the first book from the Fun with Spot series that feature the little puppy Spot and his adventures. This is a board book version which is perfect for little hands.

 Shades of Magic, Vol 2 - The Night of Knives - V. E. Schwab

I love anything that Victoria writes and this is no exception. 
The story of Maxim Maresh and how he got the title of The Steel Prince is very very good and the illustrations are just gorgeous. 

A full review will follow soon. 

Antiracist Baby - Ibram X Kendi, Ashley Lukashevsky (ill.)

A beautiful board book that shows parents and children how to say no to racism. In the book there are nine easy steps that our little ones can take so we can have a more equitable world. It's the perfect gift and it will start many conversations between parents and children. Also the illustrations are bold and beautiful and they accompany perfectly the book.

It comes out in June 2020. - I received an ARC of this book via Edelweiss + in exchange for an honest review

Big Ideas for Little Philosophers: Truth with Socrates -  Duane Armitage, Maureen McQuerry, Robin Rosenthal (ill.)

This is a beautiful board book that introduces deep questions to small children with an accessible way. This particular one is about the philosopher Socrates and truth. The meaning of being honest and the importance of asking questions to learn more. Also, it has very pretty illustrations.

It comes out in July 2020 - I received an ARC of this book via Edelweiss + in exchange for an honest review

I also read a comic book with stories from Disney. It comes out every month and I try to buy it when I remember.

That's it for November!
