November was a busy reading month for me. I diversified into audiobooks because I couldn’t keep up with all the books I wanted to read. The books were incredibly diverse, but I did have a run at the beginning of the month where three of the books dealt with motherhood.

  • My favorite book of the month was Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders. I recommend listening to the audio. Nick Offerman and a great cast of actors perform the book and I kept finding reasons to drive, walk, or just sit and listen.
  • My favorite place to read was the renovated window seat in my kitchen.
  • My favorite candle was Beach Bonfire.
  • My favorite drink was peppermint hot chocolate.
  • I also hit 79 books in my Goodreads Reading Challenge.

I am looking for any book or movie that makes me forget about the dark days outside. Also, I am looking to try my hand at writing a Hallmark Channel Book. This book is outside my normal reading, but it was pleasant, fun and comforting!

A good quirky book about unlikely friendships and what home means.

The only psychological thriller I read this month. It wasn’t sure about how the authors decided to split up the pacing of the book, but definitely had twists I wasn’t prepared for.

YA books are a favorite of mine. They are usually quick reads but leave a lot of room for contemplation.

Boy did this book make me think! What it means to be a mother and how far motherhood has come. It is a sad book, with an uplifting ending.

A classic I’ve never read! I am going to try and read as much Agatha Christie as I can to make up for this lack of reading.

There aren’t too many books I would recommend you listen to instead of read, but you MUST LISTEN TO THIS BOOK. Nick Offerman, David Sedaris and oh so many other people.

The best book I read this year. Well told, beautiful narrative and she captured me from the first page.

Loved this book, not just because she is a hometown author! Loved seeing my city portrayed in fictional pages and really enjoyed hearing Celeste Ng’s talk hosted by our local library.
