+ International Giveaway
I reached by Goodreads target and completed the Popsugar Reading Challenge last month, woohoo! I did set my overall goal on the low side because I didn’t want to feel like I was behind half the year. I think this is the best way to approach it, unless you need a specific push to read more.
I got plenty read in November, partly thanks to Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon. I haven’t even started to tackle the brick that is Kingdom of Ash and may just hold out until I’m on holiday. I am behind on writing reviews once again, I can never get the balance right!
Keep your eye our for more non-fiction content this month as I’m taking part in Nonfiction November again.
Here’s what made it onto the blog…
Book of the Month:
Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman
What I Have Watched
I am about half way through House on Haunted Hill on Netflix. It’s inspired by the book rather than a direct adaptation but I love how it follows the family after they have moved out of the haunted house and explores how it impacted their lives. I also started watching The Americans about KGB spies living in 1980s America.
For Halloween I watched 1922, a Netflix adaptation of a Stephen King novella. It’s more of a traditional ghost story, with the ghosts representing repressed guilt.
