November Confessions

So, the good news is that I read a few more books than I thought I would this month, thanks to getting my wisdom teeth out.  I thought that I would mainly watch TV shows after the surgery, but I was really interested in the books I was reading.  While I was recovering, Let it Snow was the perfect holiday escape. Sometimes you just need some light reads that are a good escape, right?

Can you believe the holiday season is upon us? Every year it seems to go by faster than the year before. I am determined to try and savor more moments this year and take some time to chill. Easier said than done though!

Books Read in November: 
1.  Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo (Adult Fantasy) - 3.5 out of 5 stars
2.  The Other Windsor Girl by Georgie Blalock (Adult Historical Fiction) - 3.5 out of 5 stars
3.  The Wicked Redhead by Beatriz Williams (Adult Historical Fiction) - 4 out of 5 stars - Review to come!
4.  Lady Take the Case by Eliza Casey (Adult Historical Fiction/Mystery) - 3.5 out of 5 stars - Review to come!
5.  Let it Snow by Nancy Thayer (Adult Fiction) - 3.5 out of 5 stars - Review to come!
6.  What Happens in Paradise by Elin Hilderbrand (Adult Fiction/Audio Book) - 4 out of 5 stars - Review to come!

Chapter Books:
Ralph S. Mouse by Beverly Clearly

1.  Favorite BookI really liked The Wicked Redhead, which is a conintuation of The Wicked City. Surprinsgly, I enjoyed this book more than the first in the series.

2.  Biggest Surprise:  Let it Snow was my biggest surprise mainly because I didn't think I'd like a fluffy holiday read, but this was the perfect escape!

3.  Biggest DisappointmentNinth House was just an average read for me. I was expecting to be blown away!

4.  Favorite Post:  The Bride of Northanger Blog Tour

5.  Favorite Part of November:  Can you believe November is already over? Man, that just flew by! My favorite part of this month was Thanksgiving with my family and getting ready for the most wonderful time of the year.  Let's hope it goes by VERY slowly!

What books did you read this month? Which one was your favorite? Let me know in the comments. 


  1. I hope you were able to heal properly from that surgery! The timing is pretty good it seems, so now you can eat all the good treats and yummy delicious things during Christmas!

    1. Thanks, Esther! That was the plan. I am doing much better, but it was slow going...probably b/c I'm so old. haha. Thanks for visiting!

  2. I read Stephen King books while my wisdom teeth were healing. Your fluffy book sounds like a better healing plan. I hope you have a good December!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. Thanks, AJ! I am doing much better. I hope you have a great December as well. Thanks for visiting!

  3. I'm glad you had a great Thanksgiving! I can't believe Christmas is only a couple weeks away!

    1. I know, right? I am sure it will fly by! Thanks for dropping by, Angela.

  4. Urg! I hope that your healing is more or less over - anything to do with teeth is always so painful! Glad you found books a help, Christina and I hope you have a lovely week.

    1. Thanks so much! I am feeling a lot better. It was really a slow recovery though. Thanks for visiting!
