November Wrap-up

I managed to read seven books in November – not bad for someone who says they read ‘about a book a week’! I had a fairly varied month in terms of topics and a few firsts:

– 2 memoirs (Anh Do and Sayo Masuda)

– 1 chick lit (Jemma Forte)

– the new Maeve Binchy, Minding Frankie

– my first ebook (Ken Follett’s A Dangerous Fortune – don’t forget, he’s now touring Australia!)

– the first YA novel I’ve read for a while, The Luxe

– and finally, The Crimson Rooms, which you could class as historical fiction

My favourite non fiction was Anh Do’s The Happiest Refugee – a funny and uplifting story about multicultural Australia (Vietnamese pizza anyone?). The best fiction goes to Ken Follett- I can’t believe this was the first book of his I’ve read- I’ve been missing out. (Lucky I’m getting his new book for Christmas).

The search terms on WordPress always make me smile – I’m interested to know how people find me and what they’re looking for. This month Ken Follett and Anh Do tied for the most searches- not surprising, because both have very popular new releases.

It looks like this month I’ll have some more Michael Palin, some YA, classics and modern fiction for you- hope you enjoy!

What did you enjoy reading in November?

  1. What a nice variety of books you read this month! I am an eclectic reader too, and have also not yet read any of Ken Follet — glad to see that you enjoyed his book; have to get around to him soon 🙂

I enjoy reading your comments! Thanks for stopping by.
