#GratefulReads #FavNovRead #NamasteNovember #NovStats #MadonnaNovember #Amazing
Decent month. I read a total of 8 books
1 fiction, 2 historical fiction, 5 mysteries. 2of the mysteries were audio books.
Given my crazy month, it is #Amazing I read this month!
Favorite book: November Road

Eggs Great books! Great reading month👏🏻 1w
Cinfhen What did you think of 1w
kspenmoll @Cinfhen Wonderful character development, kept me guessing, really had clue about ending or who was responsible for what. This predates The Scholar which I read first. Because I am a chicken( thrillers keep me up so avoid them) it‘s hard to gauge for others but it was suspenseful for me. (edited) 1w

Cinfhen I started on audio but it was confusing so I‘m waiting for my library request. It seems like a well written “thriller” ~ I‘m looking forward to reading it. 1w

kspenmoll @Cinfhen It is a complex book, many layers, characters seemingly not connected in the beginning. I read the Scholar, her second book first (no audio) which provided some background on the characters. 1w
Cinfhen Should I go that route as well?? 1w
kspenmoll @Cinfhen I think The Ruin might be fine in book form-That‘s what I did with the scholar. The audio/The Ruin,I had to repeat chapters some times To figure out what was going on. I am thinking this author is better as a book. So start with The Ruin when you get it. (edited) 1w
Cinfhen Thanks 🙏🏼 that‘s the plan!! 1w

#MadonnaNovember #I‘llRemember
I‘ll remember: I was working in a school the day of the Challenger explosion.The kindergarteners were watching on TV the first teacher, Christa McAuliffe, go into space.Then the unimaginable happened.- the shuttle looked to be engulfed in flames, broke up, & fell out of the sky. Students created a book to express their reactions. Tagged book are poems compiled in hopes of comforting children post 9/11.

Cinfhen Awww, that was such a difficult moment to process and witness 😭😭😭Reminds us how fragile life can be. 2w

#MadonnaNovember #Frozen
When Mary Rose and Harold‘s young son died, they lost each other too. Then their cliff house fell into the sea during a storm. They floated on the ocean, and met a new people in a new #frozen land of icebergs and snow. In the process they finally grieved and found their way back to each other.

Cinfhen I love the starfish and glass paper weight 💙 4w
