Sunday Salon & a November Wrap-Up

banner1

Good morning! Today’s post will link up to The Sunday Salon, and the Sunday PostI 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.
