November Wrap-up/December's Plans 2012

November was another interesting month. I felt like I haven't had much reading done but when I look back at my read list, it's actually not bad, especially that Thanksgiving was this month and that whole week I hardly read.

So here's what I read:

1. The Woman in Black by Susan Hill
2. The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien (re-read)
3. The Night Strangers by Chris Bohjalian
4. In Cold Blood by Truman Capote
5. "The Transition of Juan Romero" by H.P. Lovecraft
6. "The White Ship" by H.P. Lovecraft
7. "The Street" by H.P. Lovecraft
8. "The Doom that Came to Sarnath" by H.P. Lovecraft
9. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon
10. The False Princess by Eilis O'Neal, read by Mandy Williams
11. Angel Eyes by Shannon Dittemore
12. "The Statement of Randolph Carter" by H.P. Lovecraft

So I read 6 novels, listened to one audio, and read 5 short stories from H.P. Lovecraft *pat on the back*. My two favorites were The Hobbit and The Night Strangers. My least favorite was In Cold Blood.

Now RAK!

So for November, I gave two books away to two fabulous ladies: Adria from Breath of Life Reviews and Danielle from Romance Book Junkies. These are the books I gave them:
These girls also decided to return the favor, so I got...

  1. Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor - YAY! I love love love that book!
