Month in Review: November 2014

Hello December!!! How is it that the holiday season is once again upon us? I feel so unprepared...last year by this time, I had all my shopping done! This year - not even close! Problem is, I still am not sure what to buy for half the people (mainly nieces/nephews) on my list, which is kinda stressing me out...hopefully I can figure it out and bang out my shopping one day this week or next week at the latest. As far as reading goes, I managed to get in quite a few of my own books last month and am hoping that trend continues this month, but not sure exactly how much reading I will actually get done. Oh well...

  1. Great month! I'm really looking forward to reading the Sarah Jio book. I loved Goodnight June. I'm listening to a Tami Hoag right now and enjoying it and I haven't read a Laura Childs in ages. I'm looking forward to your review.

  2. Kristin,
    15 books in one month would be a PR for me! Best of luck with your shopping. I need to get mine done as well. :)

  3. Looks like you had a great month! I absolutely love Diane Chamberlain. I haven't read that book, but I haven't read a bad one by her yet.

  4. Looks like a good month - November. You are getting through your challenges - I found using your style of organisation has helped me track mine a lot better this year. Just need a bit of fine tuning for next year. I look forward to reading The Look of Love at some point, other bloggers have all given it the thumbs up too.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment! I love interacting with other book lovers and appreciate any thoughts or feedback! If you read a book after seeing my review, please let me know. Come back and leave me a link to your review so I can read it. Thank you!!!
