I feel like I finally crawled out of the icky feeling reading slump I was in through October! Even though I read more books in October than I did this month and really loved many of them, I just wasn’t feeling it. Having the chance to pick up backlist books has really been wonderful and gave me some amazing reads for November.
- Master of the Mountain: Thomas Jefferson and His Slaves by Henry Wiencek
- The Disappearing Spoon by Sam Kean
- Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks
- A Land More Kind Than Home by Wiley Cash
- Stoner by John Williams
- The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell
- Life After Life by Kate Atkinson
- The Last Days of California by Mary Miller
- The Encyclopedia of Early Earth by Isabel Greenberg
Reviews for a few will be coming soon, others have to wait until January (sorry, I’m reading ahead!), and some I’ll be quietly loving to myself.
I also had the fabulous pleasure of joining up with Non-Fiction November this month, shared my favorite adult books for YA readers and a few great bookish podcasts. November, you’ve been too good to me.
What was the best book you read in November?
