November 2012 Reading Recap

Oh boy, I'm not sure it's worth even doing a recap this month. Sad sad reading month, and I have no idea why! Was it THAT busy? It had its moments but I didn't think it was this bad. Wow. And there's not even a big hard book to blame it on either. What is going on with me?

Anyway, here's what  I did mange:

Not Exactly a Love Story by Audrey Couloumbis: A cute retro love story set in the 70s from a guy's point of view. (Review of this to come next week.)

The Exiled Queen by Cinda Williams Chima: The second book of this awesome fantasy series where our heroes are going to a wizard/magic/soldier school.

 Mrs. Mike by Benedict and Nancy Freedman: The story of a girl who marries a Canadian policeman and goes off into the wild north and has adventures.

Insurgent by Veronica Roth: The second book of the series which has Tris and Four trying to figure out how to defeat those leaders trying to take over.

Favorite of the month: The Exiled Queen for sure.

Plans for December:

  • finish A Tale of Two Cities. Almost done! Really enjoying this one... it's crazy how much easier it is to understand as an adult than it was as a 14 year old!
  • finish The Hobbit before movie day!
  • re-read Unwind for book club
  • read Unwholly for book club too maybe.
  • Check out The Summer I Turned Pretty from the library and read it so I can discuss with Jenny
  • Finish The Devoted, a  review book.
  • Maybe read Dragonfly in Amber, which I have on my Kindle from the library.. but it's HUGE!
  • Read Reached, which I should have read already by now.
  • and that's probably way more than I can handle, sadly.
Hopefully you all did better! Here's to next month!


  1. Impressive. I haven't found anything I absolutely love this month. I hope I find something wonderful to read in December.

  2. I've had a sad reading record for November as well! I plan on reading Reached in December too! I'm so excited!!!

  3. Not too shabby girl, November is a busy month! I haven't read A Tale of Two Cities in forever and a day. I do remember loving it but I'm sure I'd get a lot more out of it now!

    Good luck with your December goals!

  4. I managed to read quite a lot this month - it is normally the Summer months where I struggle to finish a book a week. Hope you manage to fit in more books next month - although with Christmas I don't think I'll manage it. :-)

  5. I really want to read the Cinda Williams Chima books. I think I managed a few more books in November than October but December isn't looking too good.

  6. I do so love A Tale of Two Cities. I was introduced to it by my English teacher my junior year of high school and reading it remains one of my favorite reading memories.
