November is a busy month with Thanksgiving and NaNoWriMo, but no worries I will still read. I hope you all had a candy filled Halloween. I’m saving some of our loot to make it through NaNo 😉 I have an odd assortment of books this month. If I read 4 this month I will be happy.
- The Feng Shui Detective Goes West by Nury Vittachi. Honestly, how can I not read a book with that title?
- Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs. I’ve never read a book by him but this fits with the Goodreads challenge.
- Death of a Charming Man by M.C. Beaton. This part of the Hamish Macbeth Mystery Series. New for me.
- There Goes the Bride by M.C.Beaton. This features Agatha Raisin whom I love.
- Scrapbook of the Dead by Mollie Cox Bryan. Love the title.
- Hallowe’en Party by Agatha Christie. My first Hercule Poirot book.
- Village Books by Craig McLay. I’m not real sure about this one. It was free.
- Terror at Bottle Creek by Watt Key
- After Me by Joyce Scarbrough
I’m still keeping with the cozy mystery Goodreads mini-monthly challenge. Here’s the November challenge:
1. Nov 1 is All Saint’s Day and Nov 2 is All Soul’s Day — Read a book with a scene set in a cemetery or graveyard, or that has a tombstone, ghost or skeleton on the cover.
2. November is National Novel Writing Month, November 5 is Book Lovers Day and November 8 Young Readers Day — Read a book ABOUT books. That could involve a bookstore, library, Bookmobile, restorer, collector, writer, or book group — or even the novel Fahrenheit 451 — just so long as it revolves around books.
3. Nov 10 is Forget-Me-Not Day and USMC Day (Marine Corps birthday), and Nov 11 is Veteran’s Day — Read a book set during a war, or that features a veteran or someone serving their country. (Suggested authors include Kate Collins, Anne Perry, Jacqueline Winspear and Jasper Fforde.)
4. Nov 17 is World Peace Day — Read a book set in a country other than your own.
5. Nov 28 is Red Planet Day . . . how appropriate, since Mars is in the news so frequently these days — Read a book with a mostly red cover, or — for those who like to read across genres — a book set on another planet or that features an alien.
This could be a hard month!
