November: My month in review

Well, that’s it then – we’re moving into the last month of the year!  I had a busy month this month.  I managed to read 10 books.  I was a bit disappointed that I couldn’t complete Morning Star before the end of the month but it wasn’t to be.  Too much socialising just got in the way!.  I still managed to read three books for Sci Fi Month 2016 and enjoyed all three.  Plus, I started my first book for the second stage of the SPFBO.  I still have a couple of reviews to write but I’m not too badly behind.  And, two readalongs to look forward to now.

    It’s been a great month for you, Lynn and I’m delighted you enjoyed your sci fi so much:)). I hope that December is as successful.

      December is usually a bit slower for me in terms of reading – too many other things going on I suppose.

    Great month, Lynn! And you have been so good with your review books, your resolve puts me to shame. I am looking forward to both Skitter and In Calabria though 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, it’s making me anxious not requesting the books – I admit it! But I feel like I’m catching up a little bit.
      Lynn 😀

    You had quite a busy month, Lynn.

    • @lynnsbooks

      It was busy – plus work was a bit of a nightmare too!

    I am pleased to hear you had an enjoyable Sci Fi Month 2016, even if you didn’t manage to finish Morning Star. I was also being good and not requesting books…but then on Netgalley I saw Runemarks by Joanne M Harris 😛

    • @lynnsbooks

      I also saw Runemarks – and I so wanted to request it – but I didn’t! I’m absolutely determined to catch up. Well, saying that I don’t know how much longer I can go. I’m getting anxious!
      Lynn 😀
