Monthly Wrap-Up: November 2023

Posted December 1, 2023 by Stephanie in monthly wrap up / 9 Comments

Hey everyone!

November is over and that means, sadly enough, that Nonfiction November is also over. It was a really productive and fun reading month, even though I didn’t get around to one book on my TBR. I reread When Women Ruled the World, which was even more amazing being read by the author and my favorite book was The Edge of the World. It was beyond fascinating!

  1. Nonfiction November is one of my favourite challenges as well. I read five books, and one poetry book, Catullus, during this month. All of them about Ancient Greece and the Roman Empire. The best books were Alexander the Great by Philip Freeman, and a Swedish book De kom, de såg, de segrade (They Came, They Saw, They Won) by Daniel Hermansson. It is the story of the four greatest military strategists; Alexander, Hannibal, Scipio Africanus and Julius Ceasar. Very interesting.
    I see you also read a few interesting books about the old times. I find it really fascinating.

  2. Hmm, no 5/5 books for you this last month? Still, the books selected seem pretty unique – esp. The Edge of the World (and what a great cover too!). And I’ve come across rave reviews for The Woman in Me too
