Book of the Month
Ah, this is a hard one! But I'm going with Retribution because holy crap. And it's a series finale and I read it in less than twenty-four hours.

Book Haul
See what goodies I got for my shelves this month!

Weekly Posts
I shared ten books I desperately need to reread, ten characters who should get their own booksequels I want, and ten books I'm hoping to get read this winter

I waited on A BOOK I REALLY WANT, the latest from the author of How to Love, the newest Lisa Schroeder book, and a witchy debut.  

And this month brought one very cool Be Our Tattooed Guest!

Other Posts
Mara's Retribution, the Mara Dyer readalong, finished up with my discussions of Evolution and Retribution!

I helped reveal the trailer for Gina Damico's Hellhole, and the blog tour for Jeff Campbell's Daisy to the Rescue stopped by. Then Nikki Wang hit up the blog to talk about her debut novel The Hit List. And last but least, talk about fictional schools from Elizabeth Langston for the I Wish blog tour.

I went to book club, where we discussed (and mostly all really liked) Neil Gaimain's The Ocean at the End of the Lane.

I finally got the chance to go to a signing for local author Leslye Walton, who wrote The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender--which I still need to read!

My goal is to get Popular read for book club, finally read My Life Next Door, and read a bunch of review books and maybe a few books that were big this year!

New Releases
Here are two December releases I'm looking forward to most!

I am hearing this is very, very good, and therefore I really, really want to read it.

More space adventures, weee!

Book club will be happening, and we'll be doing a White Elephant and dressing up as characters from the books we read; it's going to be fun!


Until next time, bookish folks!
