#NovemberStats #BestofNovember

Another 14 books this month, I‘m surpassing my own expectations. And lots of good ones among them! The five in the pictures were my favorites this month, all worth at least four stars 🌟

#NovemberWrapUp 🍁🍂
11 books read this month, bringing me to 152 so far this year. I read The Sugar Queen every Fall! It makes it easier to let the warmer weather go. Nothing like reading about how much Josie loves those first cold snaps to make Fall and impending Winter more bearable! It‘s my #BestOfNovember But it always is! So, out of the new-to-me reads, Etched In Bone, was my favorite! Anne Bishop never disappoints! Happy reading, Littens!

Some hits and misses in November...here are the hits 😊 #bestofnovember #novemberwrapup

Great Expectations | Charles Dickens

My #novemberstats. I‘ve dubbed November the month of murder and memoir for me, since a majority of my books seem to fall into those categories. Also I listened to a lot of audiobooks which I don‘t normally do.
📚15 books finished
📚6 nonfiction, 9 fiction
📚least favorite: The Quick
📚#bestofnovember Favorites: Great Expectations, The Moonstone, Helter Skelter, Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl

emilyhaldi Helter Skelter is one of my favs 🖤 5y

Home Fire: A Novel | Kamila Shamsie

What a great reading month November was ! Loved my #indiebuddyread of The Burning Girl with @ClairesReads but probably #bestofnovember goes to Home Fire - so much respect for this book. Elmet and Winter get honourable mentions as does the ever delightful Shaun Tan.

jhod What a great month of books! 5y
bookloo Wow! This was a great month! 👏🏽👏🏽 5y
ClairesReads Yass! A great month! 5y

Redheadrambles @bookloo @ClariresReads @jhod Thanks ☺️ I do thinks it‘s been an unexpected lineup of consistently good books 5y
ClairesReads I sneakily nabbed myself a copy of this one- based entirely on how much love you gave it 5y
Redheadrambles @ClairesReads I always get a tiny bit nervous when you say that as I will feel bad if you think it was a waste of precious reading time but I know many people liked this ( unlike the Burning Girl ! ) 5y
ClairesReads @Redheadrambles haha you're a very reliable judge! I trust you! 5y

ElishaLovesBooks I loved this book! So good! 5y
ephemeralwaltz Had this sitting on my shelf at home for sooooo long. I know I'll love it but I still haven't gotten around to it!:( 5y
Kalalalatja @Cinfhen I know! It could just as well have been "choose your own" ?? 5y
Kalalalatja @TheKidUpstairs @ElishaLovesBooks a new favourite for me! 👏 @ephemeralwaltz I does require some time to really immerse yourself in it. But when you get to it, it will be so worth it! 5y

#novemberfavorites #bestofnovember #novemberwrapup

November was my slowest reading month of 2017. I just didn't have the time to dive into anything. Of Mice and Men and Stalking Jack the Ripper were my favourites by far! Only 7 more books left to read before my #goodreadschallenge is complete! Tag your favourite November reads in the comments so I can add them to my TBR. 🙂
