Monthly Wrap Up – November 2016


You GUYS. Despite EVERYTHING that happened in November (work, classes, a depressing election and its aftermath, and LIFE IN GENERAL) I managed to read some truly fantastic books. I had, simply put, a magical reading month. I read:

139. The Secret World of Bats by Merlin Tuttle
140. And Every Morning the Way Home Gets Longer and Longer by Fredrik Backman
141. Queen & Country Volume 2: Operartion Morningstar by Greg Rucka
142. Giant Days, Issue 20 by John Allison
143. Giant Days, Holiday Special #1 by John Allison
144. Elliott Allagash by Simon Rich
145. A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro
146. The Blue Girl by Laurie Foos
147. The Motion of Puppets by Keith Donohue
148. The Mothers by Brit Bennett, read by Adenrele Ojo
149. Griffin & Sabine: An Extraordinary Correspondence by Nick Bantock
150. Sons and Daughters of Ease and Plenty by Ramona Ausubel

I can’t call any of those books a disappointment. The Mothers by Brit Bennett was a standout in audio. Adenrele Ojo’s voice is magic and Brit Bennett’s words in from her mouth were bewitching. Sons and Daughters of Ease and Plenty was completely fantastic. I won’t forget The Blue Girl any time soon. And I can’t remember learning as much from a book as I did with The Secret World of Bats. All in all, I wish every month was November.

Here’s hoping December somehow manages to be as amazing. How was your November?

  1. I really want to do The Mothers on audio. Hoping I can squeeze it in this month! I honestly didn’t like Queen & Country and stopped after Volume 2. It just didn’t work for me, but I know others that are a fan. But, I love Lazarus by him. Cannot wait for the new volume in February!

  2. It looks like you had a great month. I look forward to The Mothers, but will be reading the printed version. I love the idea of audio books, but can’t seem to absorb them except for the rare occasion during travel.

  3. Look at you! I read ONE BOOK. A tiny one. That’s it. I hope December is a great reading month for me. I want to read before the insanity of grad school begins.
