The BookBum Club: November Theme Reviews!

The BookBum Club Banner - November Reviews

Hello everyone! I’m here today to bring you all the reviews for The BookBum Club’s November theme. I had a load of you join in for the first month of the club so thank you all so so much for supporting my idea! It means a lot.

I’ve decided, to celebrate everyone in the Club, that I would collate all the reviews and share them out with you all. Enjoy!


On blogs:

I read I’m Travelling Alone by Samuel Bjork

“I had heard so many great things about this novel from family and online, it’s got a great average rating on Goodreads, so I thought I was going to really love it, unfortunately it didn’t do much for me.”


Marija read Beartown / The Scandal by Fredrik Backman

“I am in love with this book and everything it managed to do. Go read it, buy it for your friends, give it as a gift. It should be read widely.”


Misty read November 9 by Colleen Hoover

“November 9 is my first Colleen Hoover book and I can pretty much say with certainty that after only reading one of her books she has become a favorite author of mine but I will save that declaration until at least after I read one more of her books.”


Nicole read The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer

“Since I’ve liked Meyer’s storytelling in the past and this seemed to be more in my wheelhouse, as I read more spy/action stories than paranormal, this appeared to be a good pick for me. While I did ultimately end up liking this, I did have some issues. Let’s just dig in.”


Cathy read The Summer of Impossible Things by Rowan Coleman

“Ten things I loved about The Summer of Impossible Things.

1) How we see the power and immutability of love played out before our eyes…”


On Goodreads:

Quirkyreader read Winter People by Jennifer McMahon

“This would be a perfect read for a cold winter’s night during the winter holiday season.”


Callum read The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey

“This book was recommended to me based on my love of atmospheric and immersive settings, and I can absolutely see why.”


Katherine read The Leopard by Jo Nesbo

“I like the cultural depth that Jo Nesbø goes into in his books, not just about Norway but Belgium and the Congo and just the details he likes to decorate his stories with.”

and Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn

“This book did not create a single expectation it did not meet. It was intriguing, dark, mysterious and juicy. YES PLEASE!”


Magical_Bookworm read If You Could Be Mine by Sara Farizan

“I thought this book was somewhere between okay and really like it. I loved how diverse it was.”


Ali read Hide and Seek by M.J. Arlidge

“I couldn’t give this the same rating as some of the other books in the series but also couldn’t put it down for being so sucked into what, why, how and when!”


There we have it! Those are the reviews from everyone who joined in for the first month of The BookBum Club! Please let me know if I’ve missed any of your reviews out!!

Don’t forget, you can join The BookBum Club at any point! We’re currently reading for the December theme BABY IT’S COLD OUTSIDE which you can read all about here, and join us on Goodreads too!

  1. I’m loving how you did a round-up of everyone’s reviews all in one place and included little snippets of our reviews. As soon as I have some extra free time I’m definitely going to come back and read everyone’s reviews. I am really enjoying this book club and have already started on December’s book.
