    I got such a kick out of this book. It?s just cool girls who kick butts, take names, and will put you in the ground if necessary fun! November is a heroine you can relate to. Yeah, she?s YA-Trite-The-One, but she?s also pretty normal and funny. She?s kind of like the Buffy o...

    When I saw this book the blurb had me intrigued and I really wanted to read. When my copy finally came in from the library , I was excited to read but sadly this book didn't work out in my favor. I couldn't connect to any of the characters and I felt the story went on and on and on and...

    I've been a huge fan of Adriana's ever since I first picked up HOW TO HANG A WITCH and it's sequel HAUNTING THE DEEP, but she has stepped up her game like nobodies business. KILLING NOVEMBER is by far the most unique and entertaining book I have ever read. This gave me everything I wan...

    2.5 Stars. Couldn?t quite keep my attention. I kept losing interest. The sad thing about this story is that someone had to literally die to reel me back in. After the third casualty though it felt contrived. I likely won?t continue with this story if there are sequels and it sor...

    KILLING NOVEMBER is a ya novel with a kick-ass female main character - November! November is in school which teaches poisons, deception, all types of fighting, and the rule is an eye for an eye. So begins a non-stop action novel. I highly recommend this book. ...

    Initial Impressions 3/19/19: Another Goodreads fail where it's not noted that this is a series (any GR Librarians want to add that, please?) but thankfully I could see that coming and I actually do want more of this series, unlike other poor surprises I've had haha! I knew I wanted...

    3.5/5 Like Adriana Mather's previous novels, Killing November follows a generic YA format where the main character is absolutely clueless (I mean, she still doesn't know anything at 76%) and she goes through a journey of figuring out her role in this strange and new school envir...

    ~Synopsis~ When November Addley?s father sends her away to boarding school because it's too dangerous back home, she doesn?t know what to expect. But she definitely doesn?t expect to be sent to a school that?s completely off the grid--with no access to the internet or even ele...

    This was a good choice to listen to. I really enjoyed the story and the narrator. I am a sucker for teens with special gifts at a boarding school stories. The plot in this book was wrapped up at the end and while you know what the second book is going to be about, I wouldn't consider i...

    "Welcome to Academy Absconditi, November, where the scheming never stops, and where someone is always trying to push you off a ledge." I loved Killing November! This book is about November, who winds up at a boarding school for children of strategists (spies, assassins, etc.) mid-se...

    Absolutely loved this book and could not put it down!! What I really loved about this book is the intrigue of a secret society, a school steeped in history and mystery. I can?t wait for the next book in this series!! Adriana has outdone herself again, if you are a fan of How to Hang ...

    This book was so much fun! I?ve been into YA thrillers lately, but found most of them to be a bit lacking. Not so with Killing November! This one turned out to be just as dark, stabby, and twisted as the cover and premise suggest. At the start, I wasn?t immediately sold. I felt ...

    Killing November took me by surprised. I don't know why but I thought I would like it less than I actually did. I don't really know why I thought that. Maybe it's because I was having a bad reading slump when I first started but it doesn't matter now. Killing November was quite atm...

    It?s now past 2am, I?ve got to get up early tomorrow but I don?t regret one minute staying up to finish this. Though I didn?t exactly get a choice since I couldn?t seem to be able to put it down. The best book I?ve read this year, and I?ve had some good ones. ...

    Before Killing November, I hadn't read anything by Adriana Mather, but now I'm looking forward to more! This story gives a different and refreshing take to YA Mystery involving a school to train spies and assassins. I was intrigued from the start, mainly because there aren't many de...

    So once again Adriana has done it. I?ve cried, I?ve laughed and I?m left wanting more. Murder, weapons, poisons and everything is deathly. I loved every single moment of it.This is another masterpiece and I?m ready to reread it, the plot, the twists and turns kept me doubting m...

    First off I would like to thank the author, the publisher, and NetGalley for giving me the chance to read and review this ARC. Please note that the version I read was an advanced copy, and certain events/language may be changed in the published edition. While the copy was provided for ...

    Think of the Harry Potter setting and school, but for Hunger Games families. A strong young adult theme, with a few cliche moments but for fans of YA and a bit of conflict, this one will do it for you. The requisite challenge of skills/tactics, relationships and someone out to unbalanc...

    Killing November by Adriana Mather is the first book of the young adult thriller series by the same name. This opening book of the series certainly set up a creepy atmospheric setting dropping the main character into a boarding school in an old castle in the opening pages. November ...

    I read an early draft of this book. It was good. It has since gone through both line edits and copy edits. It is now excellent. I really liked the premise and I found the setting atmospheric and intriguing. The MC was eminently likable, the writing taut and suspenseful. November ap...

    I have been in a bit of a book slump and this is just what I needed! Killing November was such a fun read! The MC has no idea wth is going on when she?s placed into a boarding school full of future assassins and spies. This school is brutal but so awesome to read about! Knife...

    I enjoyed this book way more than I expected to enjoy it when I picked it up. Initially, I thought it would be a good read for my students, who like thrillers. I expected to skim through, find it acceptable and move on. Instead, I totally got sucked in to this book. A lot of it was pre...
