November Wrap-up


It's hard to believe that Christmas is nearly upon us, and that a new year is just around the corner.

I finished nine books this month. Thanks to the HoHoHo Read-a-Thon and the 2017 Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge, I managed to squeeze in some holiday reading. I always enjoy feel-good stories at this time of year, and I hope that I can read more of those this month.

The Shining and The Troop are tied for my favourite reads in November. I'm definitely reading more of Nick Cutter's work.

My least favourite read was The Thirteenth Tale. That one was a disappointment for me. I had heard such great things, but it didn't live up to my expectations.

I discovered five new authors, and I started a new series (King's The Shining).

  2. Nine books for November is great. I have said it before but will say it again, I admire the readers willing to read Stephen King. All the best.
