MY READ OF THE MONTH

The Silent Companions by Laura Purcell. The story was gothic and atmospheric, it built tension gradually and held my interest and fascination through all the revelations. It became a little more scary as the wooden companions became more menacing. Definitely a book I’d recommend.
You have no idea how long I sat here deliberating, going between this book and A Pocketful of Crows by Joanne M. Harris, which is also really good.
I picked some good reads for this month!

My total for this challenge is currently 15 books read. So far I’ve read:

GOODREADS

I’m currently at a total of 33 books. Wonder how many I’ll reach in total by the end of the year?

GOALS

I’m still managing to (mostly) post my reviews in a timely fashion, and I’m keeping track of my challenge progress.

I finally did it… listened to an audio book. I found it more enjoyable than previous attempts. I’ve found before that my attention seems to wander when I listen to rather than read the words on the page and I don’t retain it as well, but this time that didn’t happen and I would probably listen to another audio book some time, although my first love is always going to be a brand new physical book I think.


So concludes November’s Reading Review. See you again next month.
