I spent a lot of November writing for NaNoWriMo (and finished by the skin of my teeth), which meant I didn’t read as much as I would have liked, and I stopped blogging almost completely. But here’s how the month shook out:
Picture Books: 22
Middle Grade: 3
Total Pages Read: 2927
Favorite Reads in November:
Bonfire by Krysten Ritter: Abby left her tiny hometown in Indiana and never looked back. But now she’s an environmental lawyer in Chicago, and her team has been sent back to her hometown to investigate a company that might be leaching chemicals into the water. She has to confront the demons of her past as she digs deeper into a conspiracy that’s more far-reaching than she ever imagined.
I devoured this twisty thriller in a couple of days. Ritter’s debut novel is compelling, smart, and super well-written. I was blown away by this one, and it’s one of my favorite reads of the year.
Total Movies: 4
Favorite Movies in November: Thor: Ragnarok
Other Things I’ve Been Watching:
Somehow I’ve ended up deep into a rewatch of Grey’s Anatomy, which has taken over my life. I’m into season 6, and I don’t even know how it’s happened.
We’re onto the last month of the year! I’m hoping to squeeze in a few more movies and books before revamping my goals for the new year.
