Sunday Salon - it has been a long time!
I actually can't remember the last time I took part in The Sunday Salon. It must have been at the beginning of the year. I will actually need to go back to the list of posts to find out. I thought I would try to get back into writing them as I do miss the friendly weekly chat with all the other book bloggers.
I had hoped to do lots of reading this weekend, but Christmas has started to take over. We have been busily decorating the house for the festive season, as well as making Christmas cards to send out to our family and friends. My Christmas journal is up to date and I will post some pictures of it on Tuesday.
At the moment, I am reading one festive book, Christmas Eve at Friday Harbour by Lisa Kleypas. It is a romantic novel, which is a lot different from my normal choice of books. It is light hearted and enjoyable. I am also reading Mrs Harris Goes To Paris by Paul Gallico. A rather delightful read.
I thought I might add my November reads into this post today.
I read ten books this month and I am over the moon about that as it was rather difficult to find time to read when your doing NaNoWriMo as well, but I did it.
I did try and take part in the November Novella Challenge and I managed four novellas. I had hoped to read 8 but I was sent three review books that had to be read rather quickly, so it all went pear shaped.
Here are the books I read during the November..
1) The Small Hand by Susan Hill (Novella)
2) Cheerful Weather For a Wedding by Julia Strachey (Novella)
3) Moondial by Helen Cresswell ( Children's)
4) Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger ( Book Club)
5) Finding Sky by Joss Stirling (Review copy)
6) Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen (Review copy)
7) Henrietta's War by Joyce Dennys (Novella)
8) Three Men In a Boat by Jerome K. Jerome (Library)
9) The Haunting by Margaret Mahy (Novella)
10) I Am Four by Pitticus Lore (Review Copy)
I still haven't reviewed the last four books on the list and hope to get those written soon. I still have Dear Daddy Long Legs to review too.
How did your reading month go during November?
