November ReCap

     November is gone and December has rolled in on an icy wind.  We have some white stuff floating in the air just to prove winter is here.  Time to hunker down by the fire or at least wrap yourself in a large blanket and read the day away.  I prefer to stay in bed with the electric blanket turned to high. 
I have several books lined up to read in December but first let's finish off November.

I read eight books for personal reading. 

1. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
2. Me and the Pumpkin Queen by Marlane Kennedy
3. Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins
4. My Abandoment by Peter Rock
5. Forge by Laurie Halse Anderson
6. Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
7. Evangeline Mudd and the Golden-Haired Apes of the Ikkinasti Jungle by David Elliot
8. A Curse as Dark as Gold by Elizabeth C. Bunce

     I haven't reviewed them all but they were all very good.   I think my favorites were #2, # 4, #5 and #6.  I enjoyed reading the classically wonderful Fahrenheit 451 but I didn't love it and the story started to drag for me.  The message is an all-important one though.  One of my challenges (451)  finished in November and sadly I failed-I read four out of five titles.  I didn't finish my quota but thankfully they are not coming to cut out my tongue or chase me down by helicopter for not finishing.  The last book I was to read for this challenge got left behind by accident at my brother's home.  Ooopsie!  I did get to read several classics though-and for me that was a win so all is not lost. 

I'm going to read at least this many in December to finish off other challenges and just because I want to.  I like reading-what can I say...
Thank you November...I have much to be thankful for, my blessings surround me.

Happy December!!
