Fun Fact. I‘m always late posting the last photo challenge of the month 🤷🏻‍♀️
Had a pretty good month. And I have a lot more in progress. A. Lot. 😬 #FallFavorites #NoteworthyNovember #emojinov👍👍

MatchlessMarie Bonus fun fact. Mandy Patinkin‘s Birthday 🎂 was on the 30th 😍 He‘s one of the narrators in the tagged book. 😘 5y

The Familiar, Volume 5: Redwood | Mark Z. Danielewski

Not as good as October, but I‘m glad I read more than two books this month. I‘m so close to finishing The Handmaid‘s Tale, but I‘m tired, so I don‘t think I‘ll finish it tonight. I‘ve really enjoyed it so far though, so I think it and TFv5 are probably going to be my two #fallfavorites.

I bought this tiny little Christmas tree for the #holidays last year specifically so I could have my ratsies pose with it for our Christmas card without them being totally dwarfed by it. Sadly, both of them crossed the rainbow bridge earlier this year, but I‘ll always think of them whenever I take out our tiny tree. ❤️

The Egg and Other Stories | Sherwood Anderson

Anderson‘s writing is wonderful. He really gets inside of the minds of his characters. He tends to be repetitive in his words, but not to the point of irritation. Although his words are wonderful, this is not a book you want to read if you‘re depressed! #NoteworthyNovember #FallFavorites

Lonesome Dove: A Novel | Larry McMurtry
post image

November was a very interesting month for me- so much so that I had to put it on paper to process. Most of the 14 books read were 4-5 stars so overall it was a great month, but boy did I have a tough time with #botm ... 5 bails in Nov and ALL of them BOTM. Luckily the good books made up for the bad!

🥇Lonesome Dove (how could I not)
🥈The Remains of the Day
🥉Angela's Ashes


AmandaL Great month! 5y

Reviewsbylola Totally shocked by The Remains of the Day and Manhattan Beach. 5y
ferskner I love your handwriting! 5y
Alfrazier21 Lonesome Dove is an amazing story. My mom made me read it years ago. I didn‘t want to at first (because I thought I hated Westerns), but I‘m so glad I did. I love that book :) 5y
Megabooks Botm has been particularly bad lately. 🤦🏻‍♀️ I‘m not excited about December. 5y
Megabooks But I did like four you bailed on and I‘m enjoying Magic. Im guessing you‘re not big on magical realism. 🤷🏻‍♀️ And I bailed on MB. Hate reading FHOTLG now. (edited) 5y
emilyhaldi @Booksandcooks omg FHOTLG was a TOTAL hate read for me too 😂😂 just awful. And you would be correct in guessing that magical realism is not my thing 😆 surprisingly, I‘m actually looking forward to Dec BOTM picks!! I might even get all 5 🤭 5y
emilyhaldi @Reviewsbylola I'm shocked that you're shocked by Remains of the Day! Have you read it?? So good 5y
emilyhaldi @Reviewsbylola also did you read manhattan beach yet? 5y
emilyhaldi @Alfrazier21 me too- was dreading having to dig into a chunkster of a Western novel... And here I am collecting the rest of the series! Love when you take a chance on something new and it actually works 😊 5y
Reviewsbylola I didn‘t care for Remains I have maybe 50 pages left of MB and I am thinking three stars. 😬😬 5y
Eggs That's a lot of pages! Great books 😍 5y
Cinfhen Great reading month and VERY surprising BOTM #fail but I agree with your assessments. I did not enjoy the books you bailed on and I never tried Junes.... 5y
