Monthly Wrap Up: November 2011

We are only one month away from 2012.  ONE MONTH.  That is crazy! I originally thought I would never make my reading goal of 100 books this year after my three month slump at the beginning of the year.  Considering how many books I was able to read in October and November, I am now thinking that I will, indeed, break the 100 mark!

Here are the books I read in November:

Wench, Dolen Perkins-Valdez

Election, Tom Perrotta

The Marriage Plot, Jeffrey Eugenides

Delirium, Lauren Oliver

A Watershed Year, Susan Schoenberg

The Raising, Laura Kasischke

101 Things You Thought You Knew About the Titanic . . . But Didn’t!, Tim Maltin

The Painted Veil, W Somerset Maugham

Goodbye Natalie, Goodbye Splendour, Marti Rulli and Dennis Davern

A Train in Winter, Caroline Moorehead

Not as good as the thirteen books that I read last year but still better than my norm, which is about 7-8 books per month.  I read some spectacular books, but if I HAD to choose a favorite, it would have to be Delirium, by Lauren Oliver,  I can’t wait to get my hands on Pandemonium!

My reading plans for December are pretty wide open, which is nice! I don’t even have a clue about which book I’ll pick up next! How was November for you, reading wise?

  1. Wow, you had a great reading month, and did seem to get a lot done! I wish that I could say the same, but I have been sort of slacking wiht my reading for the past few months. Hopefully December will be the month that I pick things back up again!

  2. I didn’t miss your review of The Painted Veil did I? I’ve had to skip so many posts in Google Reader this month that I hope I didn’t miss it…off to look.

    Wonderful month for you! A lot of those books are ones that I’d love to read (one day). Marriage Plot has me most interested.

  3. Well done! I got off to a slow start thanks to the beast that was Reamde. And then I went and read another chunkster…the Steve Jobs bio. So I was actually surprised that I ended up reading 8 books.

  4. Congratulations that is soooo many books! I read four books last month which is pretty standard for me 🙂

  5. Another great month! Can’t wait to see what you thought of The Painted Veil…. have you watched the movie yet? With all my time in the car lately, I listened to more books in November than I read! Still a good month though 🙂

  6. It sounds like you had a really great month of reading in November. I wish I could say the same but I’ve been struggling the past couple of months to really find time to read. I hope that December is just as great of a reading month for you 🙂

  7. a good month ,all the best stu
