November
November: Calendar Girl Book 11 | Audrey Carlan
91 posts | 7 read | 2 to read
Life, Love, Laughter. Three things I never expected to experience in the month of giving thanks, but that is just what I received. Wes had survived Hell on Earth, and was back where he was meant to bein my arms and my bed. For good. There would be no breaking us apart after the trauma we experienced up to this point. My new job with Century Production sent me to the big apple to interview celebrities for a special segment on being thankful. What is a girl to do when she has an entire host of celebrity friends from her past year of travels? You better believe I called up my friends Mason Murphy, all-star pitcher for the Red Sox, and Anton Santiago, the Latin Lov-ah, to participate. They were all too happy to oblige, only my guys feathers were a bit ruffled by the ease with which they came running. Add in my new family and youve got a fairytale Thanksgiving. Except for one tiny detailthe single seat at the table, left open by the hole in my heart that only one person could fill. *** In the eleventh book of the Calendar Girl serial, Mia is off to New York City to film a segment for her new job. Now that her debt has been paid, and the threat from her ex is gone, she no longer has to live life as an escort. Only life has thrown her some new challenges to round out her year. Each installment in the Calendar Girl Serial will release every month throughout 2015. Warning: This book is designed for audiences 18+ due to language and graphic sexual content.

I finished 15 books in November, the majority of which were good to great. Unsurprisingly, according to The StoryGraph, my most read genres were mystery and romance and the primary moods were dark, mysterious, and emotional. Tell me you fell into a deep depression without telling me you fell into a deep depression. 🤔 I‘d say here‘s to a lighter December, but I‘ve looked at my planned TBR. Maybe I should tweak it. 🤣🤣

Pretty happy with my November reading as I finished 17 books! 🎉📚🎉 They weren‘t necessarily the books in my November TBR as I made a mid-month decision to try to complete the #BOTM challenge & the #OnceUponABookClub 40 book challenge this year & switched out books. I am on track to finish both in December.

I finished my #SundayBuddyRead #JaneAdjacent & #ChildrensClassicsRead2023 #NancyDrewBR books & one for my virtual foodie book club too.⬇️

DebinHawaii Favorites this month were The Last Devil to Die & Project Hail Mary although I enjoyed most everything I read this month. (edited) 7mo

I wanted to finish one more book, but I can barely keep my eyes open, so I‘ll finish November with 18 completed books, including 3 books for #NetGalleyNovember, and 1 for #booked2022. I enjoyed the vast majority of these, with just the bottom row of letdowns. I‘m also at 192 books for this year and on track to break 200 for the first time.🤩 #novemberwrapup #novemberstats

Texreader Wow! That‘s an incredible number for the year so far! I‘m hoping to make 100, probably my highest number ever 2y
DGRachel @Texreader My goal was 100 and I passed that in May or June, but I honestly never expected to get to 200. It‘s wild to me and a number I‘ll probably never reach again. 😂 2y

For the #NovelNovember #readathon I just completed my first book. It's not in the system yet bit it's titled The Silent Woman by Minka Kent. I'd say it's so-so. Fairly predictable, but a few interesting twists. Overall barely ⭐⭐⭐
I'll be switching formats from Libby to Kindle and I'll tag the book below 👇

November‘s proposed TBR is a combination of books carrying over from October, NetGalley books that haven‘t been published, yet (i.e. I‘m not late reviewing them), a couple of library books, and a handful of just because on the event that I have time and/or can‘t decide what I want to read. #NovemberTBR #NetgalleyNovember I may pick up a nonfiction audiobook or two, but I don‘t want to feel locked into any of them.

Thankful for a strong start to the month, since the second half went to hell. I only managed 11 books this month, but I did complete all but one of my reading goals for the year, so I can coast through December. Forget the Alamo and Narwhal‘s School of Awesomeness were my favorites. #novemberstats #novemberwrapup

I was hoping to finish two more books this month, but they both have more hours to go than there are hours left in the day so… I‘ll roll them over to December!

Be that as it may, I did finish four books, of which The Widows of Malabar Hill was my favorite.

I managed 12 books in November (fine, If the Fates allow was a short story, but I‘m counting it.) I really liked a lot of these and really hated a couple. It was a good month, but I need to read 12 for December too to get to 100!
