Books I loved in November:
I have to confess, I didn't love any book I read in November. Therefore, I don't have a book of the month. I don't even have a book I can highly recommend to you. Admittedly I didn't read all that many books in November due to NaNoWriMo, but I did read some pretty buzzed about books - and all of them fell flat for me. I enjoyed Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins, but it was no ANNA. Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick was a big letdown for me as was Ally Condie's Crossed. The Pledge by Kimberly Derting didn't really work out for me either. Hopefully December will be a better reading month for me. Maybe I'm just too picky!
I need to read some WOW books in December (That's WOW as in 'OMG! Can't put this book down! I am so in love with this book etc. not WOW as in waiting on Wednesday. You knew that already, I know.) So, if anyone has recommendations for me bring 'em on!
What I'm reading now:
I'm starting on Tempest by Julie Cross tonight. Has anyone read it already? I looked at my bloggy calendar earlier this evening and got quite the shock. January is an insane month for book releases and I have a lot of blog tours scheduled. I've a lot of author interviews to prep for too, which means my January reading begins now. And I have to get to all those awesome HarperTeen titles from Netgalley before they expire. Eeek. So many books, so little time!
Top picks for December:
December is another slow month release wise, but there are some promising sounding titles to check out nonetheless such as Still Waters by Emma Carlson Berne and Illuminated by Erica Orloff.
Coming up on the blog in December:
I'll be taking a little blog holiday for Christmas so it'll be all so quiet around here for a week or so. Or maybe just a few days. I haven't decided yet! Before that though, I'll be posting some lists including my top books of 2011, best books for 2012 and there may even be a giveaway...or two!
