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.

  1. Best of luck on finishing your GoodReads challenge for the year. I am about to finish mine today. I really enjoyed the Little House of the Prairie books. They are what got me started on reading historical fiction.

    • Thank you! I’m on track so far, but Christmas could definitely be a hindrance. Congrats on hitting your goal! Yours was more than twice mine, so color me impressed! The Little House series is one of several that I’m sad I didn’t read when I was younger. I have been loving that series so far.

  2. It will be but I say just get to what you can, and the rest will wait. Thank you so much. I absolutely love to read, it’s my relaxation. I read them all as a child and loved them all. I loved the detail in them. I may reread them at some point. They are quite popular with adults as well I know.
