Monthly Favourites – November 2019

This instalment of my monthly favourites is, unfortunately, as short as the one from October. I finished reading four books in November and enjoyed three of them. But I didn’t dedicate much time to my other interests.

My favourite book from the ones that I read last month is Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë. It’s an enthralling gothic novel about obsession and revenge. Although many of the characters are despicable, they are fully believable. One of them is Heathcliff. He spent good part of his life trying to take vengeance on those whom he believed had wronged him in the past. When he was a homeless boy, Mr Earnshaw found him on the streets of Liverpool and decided that he was going to live with him and his children at Wuthering Heights. He was from the beginning looked down on by Hindley, while growing very close to Catherine.

The only TV series that I watched in November was the third season of The Crown. Despite the acting being really good, I didn’t like it as much as previous seasons, for reasons that I can’t pinpoint for sure… Nevertheless, I loved and was heartbroken by episode 3, which is about a disaster in the Welsh town of Aberfan.

Last month, I discovered that I like having ambience videos on the background while I’m reading and writing. The YouTube channel ASMR Rooms has some really good ones inspired by Harry Potter, Sherlock and Game of Thrones, for example.

These are my favourites from November. Which are yours? Tell me in the comments!

    Perfect! Thanks very much for introducing to me these ambience videos, and I am glad you loved Wuthering Heights. I think it is one of the hardest classics to love in some respect because of some unlikable characters and the names confusion (even that small detail). It is definitely an emotional novel that stays with you.

      I thankfully don’t tend to dislike books because the characters are unlikable. My only criticism about Wuthering Heights is that I would have liked to know more about what was going on in Heathcliff and Catherine’s minds in certain occasions.
