November 2012 Roundup

November was a month of blissful reading, working too much, and blogging too little.  So, basically, I read like a madman when I could, but haven’t reviewed anything all month.  Or read anyone’s blogs or commented on anyone’s posts or anything.  It was a bad blogging month (as they tend to be whenever work gets out of hand), what can I say?

Books Read:

The Wednesday Wars by Gary D. Schmidt

Three to Get Deadly by Janet Evanovich

Four to Score by Janet Evanovich

Perfect Fifths by Megan McCafferty

High Five by Janet Evanovich

Hot Six by Janet Evanovich

Seven Up by Janet Evanovich

Hard Eight by Janet Evanovich

To the Nines by Janet Evanovich

Operating Instructions by Anne Lamott

The Boy Book by E. Lockhart

In the Works: I am still working on the Catch-Up Series Challenge, though I think I’m down to 1.5 books left to read and a lot to review.  I’m reading Anne of Avonlea at the moment and loving Anne Shirley, but only in small doses.  I’ve also got The Body Finder as my electronic read for the slow times at work.  I’ve also got a few Stephanie Plum books at home and I also picked up The Scorpio Races from the library, so those are probably next.  Also, I need to fit in Where She Went next month, though I’ve been sort of hesitant to read it.  You all say it is good, so why am I doubting your stellar opinions?

What’s going on in your reading/blogging world?

  1. I totally understand what you mean about reading a ton but not blogging when work is busy. I feel like I will be reading in my downtime this week, but won’t have enough energy to post any reviews. Maybe a top ten Tuesday tonight? Who knows.

    Are you going to do a Stephanie Plum series review? I feel like I might do that with the Ruby Oliver books once I finish the last two…maybe JD too if I ever finish those. I don’t have high hopes for that, though.

    I’m curious to see what you think of The Scorpio Races. I bought it for my kindle when it was like 2.99 and got about halfway through before putting it down. It’s just kind of…slow? for me, I guess. I don’t know. I didn’t really like Shiver and am intrigued by The Raven Boys, but am afraid I won’t like it if I can’t get through TSR. My students say TRB is really good though, so we’ll see.

    • I might do a series review of Stephanie Plum before the year is over. I’d like to post a few thoughts on it, but as it is a series, there isn’t really a lot new from book to book.

      I’m not sure if I’ll like The Scorpio Races or not… I have heard it is slow, but awesome. Usually if something is too slow, though, I lose interest, so we’ll see. I’ve never read any of her books, so I thought I’d give it a try. I was in need of something a little different, anyways.
