What I Read In November

I got a lot read in the first part of the month, but these last few weeks have been somewhat slow.  In the past week I've done a 3 mile charity walk, celebrated Thanksgiving, married off my little sister, and single-handedly orchestrated a graduation ceremony with over 300 people in attendance.  I'm burned out and was too tired to read much on some nights (I'm never so tired that I can't read anything).

In November I read:

The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough
Mozart's Last Aria by Matt Rees
Between Shades of Grey by Ruta Sepetys
Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen
A Thousand Lives by Julia Scheeres
An Accidental Mother by Katherine Anne Kindred
Want to Go Private by Sara Darer Littman
Conversations and Cosmopolitans by Robert and Jane Rave
Betsy-Tacy; Betsy-Tacy and Tib; and Besty, Tacy, and Tib Go Over the Big Hill by Maud Hart Lovelace
Meg by Steve Alten
Miss Peregrine's School for Peculiar Children by Ransom Rigg

Total this month: 11
Total this year: 108
Pages read this year: 37,707
Money saved through buying used, reviewing, and using the library: $1101.09

That means that I met my goal of 100.  I feel like it's reasonable to think I could push the goal to 125 at this point, but I don't think I will.  I want to relax this last month and not feel pressured in any way.  I am going to try to spend the month reading 2011 releases (other than those I've already committed to for tours) and getting as many of those complete as possible.

Not much to sum up that wasn't already covered in the Thanksgiving post, but feel free to look back and see!

What did you read this month?


  1. I haven't read any of those. Miss Peregrine is on my list, though!

  2. Angel - Miss Peregrine started off really great and then kind of fizzled out. I'll do a full review later, but I was a little disappointed.
