Good morning! Today’s post will link up to The Sunday Salon, and the Sunday Post. I am foregoing my weekly Read, Watch, Play post so that I can do a wrap-up for November!
November was an incredibly busy month, so I was only able to read 5 books. I’m hoping for double that in December! I will be reading quite a few books for the #DiversityDecBingo Challenge. I am also hoping to also polish off one or two more books from my 2016 TBR pile.
TOP TWO BOOKS I READ IN NOVEMBER
- Heartless by Marissa Meyer – Review here.
- Eleanor & Park – Review here.
OTHER BOOKS I READ IN NOVEMBER
- The Bookseller of Kabul by Asne Seierstad – Review here.
- Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi – Review here.
- The Blazing Star (eARC) – Review here.
