November was rough so getting any reading done at all was an accomplishment! Nanowrimo consumed nearly all my spare time & dealing with all kinds of stressful life, health, & work issues used up the rest of my energy. I wasn‘t able to participate much in any of the November challenges but I hope December will be better! My #FavoriteNovemberRead was the tagged book, much to my surprise. #GratefulReads #NamasteNovember #NovStats

The last half of November kind of kicked my ass. Between all the busyness of my birthday, Thanksgiving break, my phone dying, and then just yesterday having to deal with a damaged windshield has been a lot. Didn‘t get to participate as much as I wanted in #NFNov or even my own goal of #NetGalleyNovember. Looking forward to #WinterGames next month though! #NamasteNovember #NovemberStats

Eggs You did very well despite the distractions 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 6d

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👏🏻 6d
Cinfhen What did you think of 6d
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) 6d

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. 6d
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 6d
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. 6d
Cinfhen Should I go that route as well?? 6d
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) 4d
Cinfhen Thanks 🙏🏼 that‘s the plan!! 4d

The Downstairs Girl | Stacey Lee

My favorite post of the month is showing you my Nov wrap-up through my indexed card bullet journaled format. I‘ll finish up Timepiece today and that will mean the month was 50% fiction to nonfiction. ...Tagging The Downstairs Girl because those letters were so fun to create - even after erroneously writing girls in plural and deciding oh well.

wanderinglynn Awesome month! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🎉 6d
RachelO Love seeing your wrap-up posts! 6d
marleed @RachelO @wanderinglynn Thank you! I‘m not sure which is more fun - creating the card - or having a touchy feely way to look at all I‘ve read in 2019. 6d

I‘ve read so many books this month I can barely contain them in a single photo! #NovemberStats: 18 books finished (3 started in October), 2 in progress. #FavoriteNovemberRead was Quichotte. Most disappointing was Little Fires Everywhere.

Allylu This is going to sound really dumb, but how do get your book covers arranged like that? 6d
BeckyandBooks Wow, what an impressive month! I was also very disappointed with Little Fires Everywhere. 6d
marleed I disliked LFE after I finished the book more than during the read. I didn‘t like how the author painted Mia the better parent to Elena. I think she should have let the reader decide. For me Mia made some life choices that failed to make her a paradigm of parenting. I‘m curios how the adaption will present the two. 6d
TheEllieMo @marleed yes! That‘s exactly how I felt, too. I felt like I was being manipulated to favour Mia, and Bebe, over Elena, and Linda McCullough. There were some complex questions being asked in the book, but I would have preferred to feel I was making up my own mind. 6d
TheEllieMo @Allylu I use an app called PicCollage 6d

#NamasteNovember My November stats - a slow reading month as lots of birthdays; plus Columbine was a slow and difficult read. Thank you @Eggs for the challenge, I‘ve enjoyed it very much.

Eggs My pleasure! Thanks so much for playing the challenge! 6d
