November TBR Final

It’s been a strange month. I started several books and didn’t finish them. My schedule was thrown off when everyone came down with colds/virus not to mention Thanksgiving and painting kitchen cabinets. I feel frazzled and a bit let down over failing to win NaNoWriMo, especially since I bought the T-shirt.

Oh well, on wards we go–

Borrowed:

  • The Feng Shui Detective Goes West by Nury Vittachi.
  • Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs.Β DNF
  • Death of a Charming Man by M.C. Beaton.
  • There Goes the Bride by M.C.Beaton.
  • Scrapbook of the Dead by Mollie Cox Bryan.

Kindle:

  • Hallowe’en Party by Agatha Christie. Β It was okay.
  • Village Books by Craig McLay.
  • Terror at Bottle Creek by Watt Key One of the best books I’ve ever read. I loved it. It grabs you in the beginning and holds you on the edge of your seat until the end. I read it in under 24 hours!
  • After Me by Joyce Scarbrough- I am about 1/3 of the way through with this one. Really good.

Also finished:

Pumpkin Pied by Karen MacInerney

D.C. Dead by Stuart Woods

Candy Canes and Criminals by M.E. Harmon

The Book Stops Here by Kate Collins

A Ghostly Undertaking by Tonya Kappes

Christmas Caramel Murder By Joanne Fluke

 

That’s 8 books for the month but only one that was on my list πŸ™‚

What was your favorite book this month?

November TBR and Goodreads Challenge

November TBR

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 πŸ˜‰ I have an odd assortment of books this month. If I read 4 this month I will be happy.

Borrowed:

  • 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.

Kindle:

  • 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 β€” 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 β€” Read a book ABOUT books. That could involve a bookstore, library, Bookmobile, restorer, collector, writer, or book group β€” or even the novel Fahrenheit 451 β€” 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 β€” 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 β€” 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 β€” Read a book with a mostly red cover, or β€” for those who like to read across genres β€” a book set on another planet or that features an alien.

This could be a hard month!
