November in Review

I read 9 books last month, which, I’ll be honest, was not ideal. Looking back over my monthly reading wrap-up posts from a majority of this year, pretty much every month I mentioned that I was getting behind in my Goodreads reading goal for the year, and that it was at least partly because I set the goal with the intention of reading a decent number of short young-audience books (like, 200 pages or less). I kept putting most of those off, and now I’m down to my last month and find myself needing to read 15 books this month to make my goal. I know it’s just a personal challenge, but it’s very difficult for me to let myself fail something like this, especially when it really is within my power to hit that goal. I just need to make sure to finish a book every 2 days. That may mean I’m reading a lot of kids’ books this month, but so be it.

Here are the books I read in November:

Fool Moon by Jim Butcher (3 / 5)
Lightning by Dean Koontz (5 / 5)
The Librarians and the Pot of Gold by Greg Cox (3 / 5)
The Prisoner of Cell 25 by Richard Paul Evans (4 / 5)
Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder (5 / 5)
Son by Lois Lowry (3 / 5)
Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder (5 / 5)
The Sisters of Sea View by Julie Klassen (3.5 / 5)
Addie McCormick and the Stranger in the Attic by Leanne Lucas (review pending)

This list includes 1 ARC and 2 re-reads. My favorite book from November was Farmer Boy. I started 3 series, continued 1 series, and finished (or caught up on) 3 series. My ever-changing short list of to-be-reads, as well as a flag for the book I’m currently reading and an ongoing list of those I’ve read and posted about can be found here.

I’m also keeping my Goodreads page updated with a more extensive list of to-be-reads. Despite my almost too-long TBR list, I’m always looking for more to add. Feel free to offer suggestions of your favorites or just recent reads you enjoyed.
