I’ll post tomorrow about one of the non-bookish things that’s keeping me busy.
- Paper books
- The Opposite of Me by Sarah Pekkanen
- Lydia’s Charm by Wanda E. Brunstetter
- Matched (Matched #1) by Ally Condie
- Virals by Kathy Reichs
- Dangerously Funny: The Uncensored Story of “The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour” by David Bianculli
- Outside the Ordinary World by Dori Ostermiller
- Audio Books
- Nation by Terry Pratchett
- The Betrayal of the Blood Lily (Pink Carnation #6) by Lauren Willig
- The Cruelest Month (Armand Gamache #3) by Louise Penny
- Shards of Honor (Vorkosigan Saga #1) by Lois McMaster Bujold
- All Clear (All Clear #2) by Connie Willis
- Nook Books
- The House on Olive Street by Robyn Carr
This brings my totals for the year to 164 books total: 85 paper books, 13 Nook books, 67 audio books. I can’t flag anything as the highlight of the month– most of the books were good, but none of them made it to great.
I wrote 10 reviews, which isn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I’ll be thrilled if I do that much in December– I’m already behind, but I’m not going to stress over it, I’ll just pick up again in January.
Looking into this month, I need to re-read (or at least skim) Mennonite in a Little Black Dress by Rhoda Janzen for one book club. I just finished Paolo Giordano’s The Solitude of Prime Numbers for the other, and I’ll need to read The Year of Fog by Michelle Richmond (which is the 2011 Silicon Valley Reads book) for our early January meeting. I’m reading Secrets to the Grave by Tami Hoag for a TLC tour, as well. I want to get a Christmas book or two in as well.
I hope everyone has a Happy Holiday season, with lots of good bookish fun!
