I didn't get much reading done last month, but did get through a couple books and started a couple more. And, I only picked up two more. So here's how November shaped up:
What I Read
- The Last Dickens by Matthew Pearl- I love his brand of historical fiction. This book really made me want to read some big, thick Dickens novels. I may put that on my 2016 to do list.
- Faithful Place by Tana French- Olive, my Books and Bloggers swap partner, was right, you just gotta love Frank! Although, after reading this book, I don't feel as bad for all the headaches Cassie caused him in The Likeness. I love Tana French characters because they're so real. They make stupid choices, but they're real choices. They lose their temper, they say hurtful things, but you love them all the more because they're more real because of it.
While I was up on Lake Superior for the day, with my friend Lori a few weeks ago, we stopped in to Spinster Books. I am trying to be more conscious about what I buy, since my bookshelf is overflowing and my husband keeps casually mentioning, "When are you going to read all these?" But, I found two new beauties. I've been slurping up anything by Anne Lamott that I come across, so of course I had to get Imperfect Birds and then I found Finding Water by Julia Cameron. She's the author of The Artist's Way and I love her style, so I snapped this one up to. It's subtitled "The Art of Perseverance". I think it'll be a good read.
