Welcome to November, everyone! I love this time of year and all the anticipation of the holidays to come. We have a lot of fun plans and visits this month. Can’t wait!
This fall has been great for my reading. October was busy and exciting with visits and fun and great books.
- I read book 11 of War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy moving me that much closer to my big 2016 goal of finishing this masterpiece.
- I enjoyed more than I thought Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix for my Harry Potter Marathon 2016.
- I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed the letter collection West from Home by Laura Ingalls Wilder.
- I also really enjoyed just for fun…
- I finished Frankenstein by Mary Shelley at the end of the month for The Classics Club. Look for my review this weekend.
- My review of The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald was published this month as well as my review of The Cautious Maiden by Dawn Crandall (one of my favorites this year!)
What an amazing October! Here’s what’s coming this month.
