Tonight is a supermoon.  Tried to get a good shot of it but it didn’t work out too well so apologies.  This month has been good.  I’m speeding ahead with my SPFBO books – I should have my winner picked out very soon.  I’ve managed to read 9 books this month.  Currently reading Cruel Prince by Holly Black which has started very well.  And, in other news I seem to have suddenly become addicted to Pokemon Go – why? Just why – I resisted it all this time but then….

Books read: 

  1. The Nine by Tracy Townsend
  2. Artemis by Andy Weir
  3. The City of Brass (The Daevabad Trilogy #1) by S.A. Chakraborty
  4. The Naturalist by Andrew Mayne
  5. Kill Creek by Scott Thomas
  6. The Emerald Circus by Jane Yolen
  7. The Saga of Dirt and Poncho
  8. Envy of Angels by Matt Wallace
  9. War Witch by Layla Nash

As you can see, a few reviews yet to follow.

What’ve you been reading??

My covers are here.

Backlist books

None this month.

Unfinished series completed:

None this month.

Books Bought: (I may have gone a little bit over the top again this month, but in my defence these books were, mostly, in a too-good-to-be-true sale – never look a gift horse in the mouth and anyway, no need to defend buying books I always think):

  1. Runemarks by Joanne Harris
  2. Horns by Joe Hill
  3. Occupy Me by Tricia Sullivan
  4. Retribution Falls by Chris Wooding
  5. Red Queen by Christina Henry
  6. Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut

  8. The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge
  9. The Queen of Blood by Sarah Beth Durst
  10. Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson
  11. Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King

Okay – so I do feel a bit sheepish looking at all those books – but I couldn’t help it and the last two were audio credits.  Feast your eyes on these lovelies.

    I want to read The Cruel Prince so bad! I’m glad you’re enjoying it. I’m really looking forward to getting to Kill Creek and The Queen of all Crows.

    So many interesting books! I’ll be check out a few. Thanks! 🙂
    I just finished Oathbringer today and it was AMAZING! 😀

  3. Kiersten

    Oooh you got some good new books! A few of those are on my list, as well. I want to get Oathbringer, but I think I’ll go back and re-read the rest of the series first.

      I can’t do a reread – too many pages altogether. Apparently the audio book is 55 hours! But, I did a readalong at least for book 2 so I might go back over the old posts for that as they’re always pretty detailed Q&As.

    November was clearly a wonderful reading month for you – and what a great book haul! I can’t quite believe that Christmas is just around the corner – and that’s after we’ve more or less finished decorating the house. I hope December is also a great month for you:)

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, a bit naughty buying so many books with Christmas (and my birthday) round the corner – but, if they’re on sale you have to grab them quick (is always my way of thinking).
      I hope you have a great December too.

    What a great month, Lynn! And looks like more good times ahead with that amazing haul. I also look forward to finding out your SPFBO winner 😀

    And I don’t know what it is these days, I’m back into Pokemon Go too. I blame that recent event, which unlocked previously unavailable “international” pokemon for your region. It was just for a couple of days, but I couldn’t let my chance to catch a Farfetch’d get away! 😛

    • @lynnsbooks

      I’m so close now with the SPFBO but I find these days that I have a really good bout of reading and then everything goes pear shaped. Plus I’m behind with writing everything up now which is bad.
      I have a Farfetch’d – very low cp but even so – I guess you’re more likely to catch certain Pokemon in certain areas? I really don’t have a clue but it’s good fun – the hubby is also joining in so basically we’re sneaking around and trying to beat each other – which actually makes it even more enjoyable. He’s kind of kicking my arse in terms of his level and xp though – but I do have better critters so far.

    You never need an excuse for buying books! However, my go-to excuse when I feel I need one is I could be spending my money on worse. I really enjoyed “Horns” when I read it a few years ago. I also watched the movie but wasn’t too impressed with it even thought I like Daniel Radcliff. I guess he will always be Harry Potter to me.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Haha – buying book is such an addiction – I can’t even pretend that I’m not buying because I usually buy e-books so they go through our account! Eek – no sneaking books in and pretending you’ve had them forever. Still, ebooks, come on – they’re not even taking any room.

    Retribution Falls is such a fun book!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Excellent – and it was on sale so I couldn’t resist.
      Lynn 😀

    I have Runemarks on my TBR and I love the same cover as you. Happy reading in December! 🙂
