November was a less than stellar reading month, both for quantity and quality. It wasn’t terrible in either respect, but it is my low point since I’ve been blogging.
I read 12 books. 5 of them were only OK, and I had been hoping for more from them.
- Tales for Delicious Girls by Barbora Knobova
- Mennonite in a Little Black Dress: A Memoir of Going Home by Rhoda Janzen
- Sometimes We’re Always Real Same-same by Mattox Roesch
- Everything Hurts by Bill Scheft
- Fallen by Lauren Kate
- Now & Then by Jacqueline Sheehan
- The Magicians by Lev Grossman
- To Desire A Devil by Elizabeth Hoyt
- Silence by Thomas Perry
- The Lost Symbol (Robert Langdon, #3) by Dan Brown
- Definitely Dead by Charlaine Harris
- Hard Truth: A Novel by Mariah Stewart
I’m still behind on my review writing. I’ve still got several books from the October readathon that haven’t been written up yet. This hasn’t been a good blogging month, and I apologize to you. I doubt that December will be better, but I hope to get my act together again in January. Please hang in there with me!
I’m currently reading Tethered by Amy MacKinnon and listening to Graceling by Kristin Cashore.
I need to read In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan for book club next Monday. My other book club will be discussing Julie & Julia by Julie Powell. Since I’ve already read it, I’m planning to read My Life in France by Julia Child.
I’ll be reading Buckley’s Story by Ingrid King and A Deep Kiss of Winter by Kresley Cole & Gina Showalter for blog tours.
I have mixed results on my challenges.
Since I realized I have 6 more months than I thought on the Sookie Stackhouse Challenge, I’m in great shape there with 6 of 9 books read and 7 months remaining to read them in.
The Everything Austen Challenge is not going as well, as I have one more month to complete 3 items. We’ll see what happens.
