November 2023 Reading Wrap-Up

December is here and that means it’s time for my November 2023 Reading Wrap-Up. November was a month where little reading was happening. Entering the month, I was caught in a reading slump, and no matter what book I looked at in my TBR, I didn’t feel like picking up any of them. Eventually, I did manage to get through a few books at the end of the month.

November 2023 Reading Wrap-Up

Maid-Sama! Vol 7 & 8 by Hiro Fujiwara

This series is growing on me more with each volume I read. While I still don’t love how Usui started out as a stalker of Misa’s, their relationship has grown quite a bit.

What Misa is willing to do to keep the girls at the Maid Cafe and her friends safe truly shows how much she cares about them. She may give off a tough vibe but that’s not her full personality.

Hinata continues to try to weedle his way into Misaki’s life again and he does get annoying more often than not. Even so, he adds some character to the story and new challenges for Misaki to tackle.

The Savior’s Book Cafe Story In Another World Vol. 4 by Kyouka Izumi & Oumiya

Another fantastic volume in this series. Tsukina and Il have come a long way already and watching them tackle some new hurdles, especially with the new Savior, was entertaining. Seeing Tsukina step into her role as Savior again while trying to balance a quiet life at her cafe with Il made the entire book come together nicely.

The new Savior certainly is an interesting character and he has a lot of growing to do, but I think he has a good heart and could turn into a better person with time. The interactions between him and Tsukina are quite entertaining. I cannot wait to read the final book in this series.

Ouran High School Host Club Vol. 5 by Bisco Hatori

This was a different volume. I can’t say I enjoyed it as much as the previous ones.

So much of it is focused on Haruhi’s extra studying and working to get back into the top spot of her class. The lack of the usual host club antics made this one feel flat. Hopefully, the next volume will be better.

Killers of a Certain Age by Deanna Raybourne

I picked this book up on a whim and wasn’t sure what to expect from it. This was a surprisingly good book. It did take me a couple of chapters to get into it, but after that, I was sucked into the story.

Having a cast of middle-aged women assassins was the best aspect of this story. I loved seeing how they dealt with numerous situations they found themselves in. Seeing how the team came to be and some of the training and early missions also helped to bring the entire story together while providing good character-building.
