November is gone. What? Wait! No, this year is flying by way too fast! Yes, it’s December 2nd which means it’s time to look back at November.
What books did I love last month? There were quite a few that I really enjoyed, but these were the best of the best.
The Women in the Castle by Jessica Shattuck
“What set this novel apart from others I’ve read was that we see the war through these German women’s eyes. Their feelings about what Hitler and the Nazi’s did and the reaction of the people around them- or lack of reaction in a lot of cases. I think this might be the first novel where I read about the German people’s apathy….If you have 13+ hours to spare, I’d recommend listening to this book! Regardless if you are reading or listening, this book was truly excellent.” 5.0 Rating
Diamond Fire (Hidden Legacy 3.5) by Ilona Andrews
“Yes, the Hidden Legacy series revolves around Rogan and Nevada, but the underlining theme is family, and the Baylor’s are the definition of that word. Of course, as this was a short story, you are left wanting more, more, more! I believe the next novel, also centering around Catalina, will be out sometime in 2019. As with all of the others, it will be well worth the wait!” 4.5 Rating
Song of the Current by Sarah Tolcser
” I love YA action novels and Song of the Current hit the right note for me. It did start off a little slow but that was to be expected as the characters and world building needed explanation. As soon as she pushed off down the river and opened that crate the story took off and the adventure began.” 4.5 Rating
Blogger to Blogger Series Interviews
If you aren’t familiar with my Blogger to Blogger series the premise is that I ask each blogger the same 10 questions. Through their answers we not only gain a little more personal knowledge but we see how diverse our Book Blogging universe really is. If you didn’t get a chance to read them the following links are the two Interviews I posted in November.
This Chicks Sunday Commentary is a catch-all post that airs almost every Sunday. I have the chance to post random thoughts, tags, interviews, etc. In November the following posts ran. Please click the link if you didn’t have the chance to read them!
Uppercase Box Nov’18 Reveal
There are many reasons why I am looking forward to December, and it’s not to finish my Christmas shopping! There are a couple of books on the horizon that I want to read. Duh!
Most Anticipated Reads for December 2018
Queen of Air and Darkness (The Dark Artifices #3) by Cassandra Clare
I am a big fan of the Shadowhunters novels and this series is her best yet.
Ever the Brave and Once a King by Erin Summerill
OK, yes Once a King is coming out in December. I actually thought I’d already read Ever the Brave when I requested the ARC and then realized, OH NO. Yep, I have to read Ever the Brave first. But I did love Ever the Hunted so it’s not a hardship. I just don’t usually like to read too much of the same genre at once… I need to get on it!
Well, that’s a look back at what happened on The Reading Chick in November, and just a very small look forward.
What are your most anticipated books for next month? Are they old ones or new?
