A few days late, but here are my November reads. I‘m kicking myself for waiting so long to listen to Sanderson‘s Mistborn series- so good! And, of course, a return visit to Shady Hollow is always welcome.

cjk @LoverOfLearning It‘s been on my tbr list for awhile now- how is it? 2y
LoverOfLearning @cjk it should be more shocking and emotional to me, but my daily job involves working with trauma survivors. So it's an easy read for me. But definitely trigger warnings. But overall a very interested read! I'll likely rate it 4 stars 2y
