Hello my fellow bookworms, I hope you are all well? Sadly November has been a quiet blogging month for me. I spent a weekend away for my mother’s birthday which was lovely but it did knock me out of sequence with my blog schedule. Then I have suffered with two bouts of cold! Leaving me with a fuzzy brain which I am sure you can sympathise was not conducive for writing posts. Good news though I have still been reading and I have had a bumper month of adaptations.
Fiction: 3 Non-Fiction: 2 Poetry: 0
I started the month off with the dark and atmospheric Lamp Black, Wolf Grey by Paula Brackston. A good read which eased me out of the R.I.P X event; that I sadly had to say goodbye to at the end of October. I continued my atmospheric reading with, the modern classic, Jamaica Inn by Daphne du Maurier. Then for something different I also read Allegiant by Veronica Roth; the final instalment in Roth’s popular dystopian, young adult series. My full thoughts on both of these are still to be posted.
Alongside these fictions I also read two non-fictions. First Bringing Narnia Home by Devin Brown, an interesting look at the lessons that C S Lewis conveys through The Chronicles of Narnia series. I thought it was a charming and comforting read. Then I read the short history Alcatraz: A Very Brief History by Mark Black – my full thoughts still to be posted.
Pick of the Month: Jamaica Inn
5 books finished is a good amount for me – only 2 of which I reviewed though. So I need to get typing and you still have 3 reviews to look forward too in December. I also started reading historical fiction Kingmaker: Broken Faith by Toby Clements and The Railway Children by Edith Nesbit; off my Classics Club list.
In December I am looking forward to reading snuggled up in a blanket with copious amounts of hot chocolate … and of course Christmas!
What did you do and read in November? What are your plans for December?
