Looking forward to new releases in November

I have already pre-ordered Nalini Singh’s book, I’ll buy The Choice as soon as it publishes and most likely will look into buying The Bookstore Sisters as well.

Review of Reading Goals  for October

  • Read the review books I have on my calendar.  I read six of the seven I had planned so I moved that one into November.
  • Continue with my slow and steady read – Emma. I did and completed it this month.
  • Maybe sneak in one off my shelf or a library book if necessary.  I read two off my shelf and one from the library. Happy with that.

Main Reading Goals for November

  • Read four review books on my calendar
  • Read two library books.
  • Possibly five from my own shelf.
  • Complete my slow and steady book that I have started Us Against You by Fredrik Backman and then choose and start my next one.
  • Start a list of books I want to buy or get from library into my reading notebook for the next little while, I’ve taken my eye off what I want to read coming up. I realised that when Katherine mentioned The Choice.

  1. Great reading month! I’m so excited about The Choice coming out in November. I’ve gotten the first two books from the library but I think I will go on and buy this one because I cannot wait!

  2. I hope you liked The Peach Keeper and I have the Nora Roberts in my audio library to review for Macmillan Audio I can’t wait to start that one. Thanks for keeping us up to date Kathryn

  3. Yours is the first blog I’ve seen in the wrap ups that I’m not familiar with any of the authors/titles except Emma & Lessons in Chemistry. I still am waiting for Lessons from the library…..I”m going back now and check out many of your titles.

  4. “Us Against You” keeps becoming available in my library ebook hold, but I continue to push it off until later. I think I’m going to have to go back to the original book in the series to remember what it was about! πŸ™‚
