November 2017 Wrap-Up

I think it was a pretty good month for getting things read. Let's see shall we?

According to Goodreads, I read 7 books.

Let's start with my TBR.

Our Souls at Night by Kent Haruf - Done! This was the book club book. It was super fast to read and made for a pretty good discussion.

The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis - Done! This was really good and I'm still thinking about it, but dang! It was super brutal and kind of gory.

Book Was There by Andrew Piper - Nope. I started this. After about 10 pages, I decided it was not for me. Buh-bye.

The Making of Jane Austen by Devoney Looser - Not done, but working on it. I am just over half way through this one. It's really good, and a totally unique way of looking at Jane Austen, but it's pretty dense.

Hardcore Twenty-Four by Janet Evanovich - Done! I always like this books, but this one was less than stellar for me. The zombies was a nice touch, though.

OK. That's it for my TBR. 3.5 out of 5, but one I tossed out all together. Let's see what else I read in November.

Up To This Pointe by Jennifer Longo - I really liked this one. And I'm not a usual fan of YA contemporary books. This was leftover from my October TBR.

Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur - This is a book of poetry. I was not a fan.

Scythe by Neal Shusterman - This might have been from October, as well. I liked it. It was fast-paced at the end. But it wasn't totally believable.

The Smell of Other People's Houses by Bonnie Sue Hitchcock - This one is set in Alaska! I can't really tell when. Maybe the 70's? There were a lot of narratives, that ended up coming together at the end, but I had trouble keeping track of who was who and where they were. It was a little confusing.

So that is a list of all the books I read in November. 7.5 books. Not too shabby. That might be better than I've done all year, so far.
