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.

Review Books: (with links to Goodreads)
I’m still not requesting books to be honest (or very few – even though I really want to go crazy). I have too many to catch up with and want to carry on getting on top of my tbr during December.
