It’s time for another wrap-up! I finished 7 books in November. Yes, you read that correctly. Granted four of them were books I had been reading throughout the course of the semester for class, but I finished them. So without further ado, here are the books I read this month.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
As you may or may not be aware, I’ve been rereading the Harry Potter series this year. I have to say that so far, Goblet of Fire has been my favorite to reread. It’s really intense, and I think it was the one that had the most pronounced difference in terms of the impact it had on me.
Law’s Empire by Ronald Dworkin
Another book for my legal theory class. This one was basically a continuation of Dworkin’s argument in his previous book and it expanded on the idea of why precedent is an important concept in our legal system.
Telling True Stories by Mark Kramer and Wendy Call
This book is a series of essays by journalists that I had to read for my Advanced Writing and Reporting Class. I really enjoyed reading this book and hearing how journalists view their work and why telling stories matters. I think I would have read this even if it wasn’t for a class.
Fantastic Cities by Steve McDonald
This is cheating because it’s a coloring book, but I did read all the text in it. I really love looking through the pictures in it and I’m really excited to color them in.
How the World Works by Russell Bova
This was my international relations textbook. It was a bit sucky, but it was a textbook so that’s not a surprise.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling
I did manage to squeeze in this monster during Thanksgiving Break. This is normally my favorite book. I find the main plot and the subplots to be completely fascinating. JK Rowling really has a gift for pulling it all together into one fantastic story. That being said, I did prefer rereading Goblet of Fire. I’m not really sure why this happened but Order of the Phoenix is now my second favorite book in the series.
ANALYSE LINGUISTIQUE DE LA LANGUE FRANÇAISE PAR THERESA A. ANTES
The textbook for my French class. There has never been a more dull book.
