The Month That Was… November 2014

I often surprise myself when I come to do my monthly round-up. I think I’ve barely blogged at all but then I discovered I’ve managed to review stuff! Maybe I’m blogging in my sleep… November was quiter than normal though, my boyfriend moved in and I guess I’ve spent more time doing things other than reading, like disappearing into NetFlix in the evenings. We’ve been re-watching House and started Under the Dome. We also went to see Mockingjay part 1, and for once I can see the point in splitting the book up.

Anyway, on the reading front, I have to seriously up my game to meet what I thought was a modest goal for the year of 120 books (I’m at 105). So maybe some novellas and graphic novels might get bumped up my TBR. Last year I didn’t meet my goal and that means Goodreads doesn’t let me have a badge for what I did read. Which is the main annoying thing about not reaching my goal. I know it’s just an arbitrary number but I want my badge dammit! πŸ˜‰

My best of 2014 list will be up at the end of the year. I don’t believe in doing it when I still have a month of reading left.

Here’s what made it onto the blog…


Read and awaiting review: The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman, Symbiont by Mira Grant + Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops by Jen Campbell.

    Nice round up, I know what you mean about thinking you've done nothing and then looking back and realising that you actually have quite a lot done! Looks like some good books read, hope you reach your goal!!! πŸ™‚

    My month was quiet but very quiet compared with yours. A pretty good month for you in all then.
