New to me authors:
Reading Challenge Update:
I am nearing finishes with most, I think I will make my audiobook goal, even though I thought I wouldn’t. I may not read a banned book so that will mean I don’t finish the Anne Bogel one, but that’s okay.
Reading Club Update:
I read Brothers and Sisters by Fiona Palmer for one online book club and really enjoyed it, the listen on audio was the way to go and the discussion on Facebook with Books with Heart was interesting.
I read Table for Eight by Tricia Stringer and that will be for next month along with Liane Moriarty’s latest book, Nine Strangers Waiting.
Outside Reading Highlights
I had installed a bookcase in my lounge room, and I love the fact I can now keep all my books in one place. I did cull some as I put them on their new home. I love the cupboards underneath which will hide stuff!!
Top Book for November…
Have you read this Irish author? I hadn’t up until this month but I loved the story and the exploration of homelessness, which is so prevalent in everyone’s country these days. At first the cover didn’t really wow me, but once I’d read the book – perfection!
Looking forward to reading in December …
Reading/Blogging Goals for December…
- See how many of my reading challenges I can finish or near finish.
- Decide if I will host a reading challenge for 2019 … or not.
- Think about what challenges I might take part in for 2019.
- Decide on my first book to read for 2019.
Last month I wanted to get 3 to 4 rereads accomplished. I read two and as they were rather solid reads I count that as good enough!
