This month has been completely insane. I’ve been concentrating on work a fair bit and that has interfered with my reading and blogging. After this week is over I should be able to get back on track. I know I have a bunch of awards to acknowledge (thank you again to those who have nominated me!) I promise I haven’t forgotten.
Here are the books I read in November:
- The Most Dangerous Place on Earth by Lindsey Lee Johnson
- The City of Dreaming Books by Walter Moers
- A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
- Clancy of the Undertow by Christopher Currie
- Sex Crimes in the 50s by Lisa Featherstone
- Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley
- Plainsong by Kazushi Hosaka
- Ghost Empire by Richard Fidler
- Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
- His Bloody Project by Graeme McCrae Burnet
- The Girl with all the Gifts by M.R. Carey
- The Road by Cormac McCarthy
- Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
- Dark Emu by Bruce Pascoe
So not bad but not my best. 3 books were by people of colour – not great but an improvement on last month. I think Americanah is one of the best books I’ve read this year. Dark Emu was also incredibly eye opening. If you are Australian, you need to read this book!
I also hit my Goodreads goal of 170 books for the year this month. (I’m currently sitting at 173.) I would love to make it to 200 but I don’t know if that’s feasible. Still, I’m not beyond reading till my eyes swell shut over the Christmas long weekend if that’s what I need to do.
How was your November? Are you close to your reading goal for the year? How is December shaping up for you?
