November Wrap-Up

December 1, 2019 Uncategorized 6

It’s been an incredible month, with lots of great discussion around nonfiction as part of Nonfiction November. I wish I’d had a little more time to spend on blogging, visiting everyone, and reading.  I’m starting to get caught up though and already looking forward to a new month and then a new year!

Books Read

I’m surprised to see that I read 10 books this month, so that’s the good news! However, I’m not surprised to see that many of these were short (novellas, graphic novels) or otherwise light fiction. And I’m unpleasantly surprised by how few of them I’ve reviewed. I’d forgotten a few of these still needed reviews, so I’ll try to catch up on them now that I remember.

Not surprisingly, my most viewed post this month was the prompt I hosted for Nonfiction November, with the topic Be/Ask/Become the Expert.




Challenge Progress

  • Read my own damn books –Haha, a continuing downward trend on this one! I only read three books that were mine this month and since I also acquired them within the last month, they hardly count. Not sure I’ll do better this month either. I might need a fresh re-commitment in January.
  • Reading Deeply Challenge – I would definitely count my experience with the
  • Post 3 times a week – Again, this really didn’t happen. It was a busy month though and I feel like I did as well as I could.
  • Platypire’s Diversity challenge – this is another one I may have to re-start in the new year, because I’ve not really been working on it
  • Nonfiction challenge, read 40% nonfiction –  I’m pretty sure 59 out of the 114 books I’ve read are nonfiction (52%), but I’m so behind on my spreadsheet that I’m manually counting books on my goodreads shelf, so who knows!


Magical Read-a-Thon – Dec 2019

I have two events I’m incredibly excited for this month. The first is another Harry Potter inspired Magical Read-a-thon, hosted by booktuber G at Book Roast. Unlike previous events, which have been team-based, this is a choose-your-own-adventure format that seems like a fun new twist on these great events. My choices have given me the following 2 prompts:

  1. most recently acquired read
  2. read one of the oldest looking books you possess

#AMonthOfFaves – Dec 2019

The other event I’m looking forward to is a set of discussion/post prompts to wrap up the year, hosted by Tamara at Traveling with T and Tanya at Girlxoxo. I’ll probably not manage to join in for every prompt, but I love that these prompts get my to do posts I wouldn’t otherwise and it’s fun to hear how everyone’s reading year wrapped up, so I’ll definitely be jumping in as I can. Prompts are listed here.

      It’s been a really fun month so far! I’ve enjoyed the Month of Fave posts I’ve been able to join in on and the read-a-thon has been great 🙂

      Thanks Liz! I did do a ton of comment catching up and I’m hoping to do that more frequently in the new year.

      I thought Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows was only OK. I liked getting two different perspectives on the same events, but the plot felt a little contrived and in retrospect, I don’t remember much about it.
