THE SHORT VERSION: 24 books // 9149 pages

In November, I read 24 books by 19 different authors. 3 of the books were rereads, and 5 were audiobooks.

THE HIGHLIGHTS

The best books of the month were Heaven’s Queen by Rachel Bach, The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes, and Salvation of a Saint by Keigo Higashino.

Heaven’s Queen is the last part of the Paradox trilogy about the space mercenary Devi Morris, and an excellent ending to the series. This series was quite out of my comfort zone, and I would likely never have read it if Rory hadn’t recommended the first book, Fortune’s Pawn. Now, I’m recommending the series to all my friends.

The Naturals is the first in a series often described as Criminal Minds for the YA audience. I loved all 3 books (the other two being Killer Instinct and All In) and even wrote a bit about it last week.

Keigo Higashino has quickly become one of my favourite authors. I read both Salvation of a Saint and one of his other novels (Malice) this month, and could not put either of them down. These Japanese mysteries are extremely convoluted with complex characters and plots that are impossible to figure out until everything is revealed at the end.

THE READING CHALLENGES

I finished 3 more books for the Popsugar Ultimate Reading Challenge. So far, I have read 40 of the 52 books.

THE READING PLAN

I finished 4 more classics for the Classics Challenge. With those, I’ve also read the 15 classics this year that I had as a goal as part of my 2015 reading plan.

THE BOOK HAULS

This month, I seriously failed my book buying ban and got 6 new books (plus another 23 from the library).

 
How’s your reading year going so far?
