I might get to read one more book before the month is out. Maybe. I have every intention of starting Crooked Kingdom and once I start I have the feeling I will finish it quickly, but I just haven’t been sitting in one place long enough to even get started.
So, here is a possibly premature Outbox post for November.
It’s been a super lame-ass reading month. But I did attend Book Riot Live, having been chauffeuring my kids around, and have been focusing more on blogging for NaBloPoMo. As a result, I have posted 20 blog posts but have only read a measly 6 books. Oh! And my head phones are on the fritz so my audiobook game has been nonexistent. I really need to do something about that.
Here are the books I read.
Anyway, here are the teeny weeny highlights.
Breakfast of Champions was a reread. I think I appreciated the story more as a younger person by much of the commentary about society and its stupidness is timeless.
Number 1 for the Month: I loved The Female of the Species. Here's my review.
The Screaming Staircase was a great middle grade horror book with teen ghost hunters. Obviously, that is right up my ally and I have downloaded the next two books in the series via Overdrive to keep up with the story.
When the Moon Was Ours is my second Anna- Marie McLemore book. She integrates some magical elements into the story that are at once nice as well as distracting. I enjoyed this book, though feel I've passed the window of my memory to do justice to a review. I did post Ms. McLemore's Weight of Feathers as a Page Turner earlier this year.
The Leftovers (Review) and A Gamblers Anatomy were both weird. Check out my review for the Leftovers. I liked it but I was like... why? For Gambler's Anatomy, I suspect that some people will love it like a wee little baby. I just couldn't get into it.
