Month in Review: November 2020

We’re getting so close to the end of the year! November ended up being a pretty good reading month and I’m hoping that carries through to next month cuz I’ve got a ton of books on my TBR that I won’t be able to move with. Here’s what I got to this month and a recap of my discussion posts on the blog! Template based on Jenna’s series at Falling Letters.

Books finished:

  • Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning
  • Miles to Go: A Collection of Poems by Robert Frost, illustrated by Evan Robertson
  • Archibald Spider and his Paper Glider by Nina Fowell
  • Transcendent Kingdom by Yaa Gyasi
  • Please Pick Me by Reina Regina
  • The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab

Books reviewed:

Actionable Reads:

Book cover for Transcendant Kingdom by Yaa Gyasi. Half pink and half black background with an illustration of a young black woman's torso turned away from the reader and knelt in prayer.

I’ve started donating to organizations each month (when I can) inspired by the books I’m reading, thanks to @reading_theend who shared this initiative a couple months back. See my Instagram post for more about it. My aim in posting about it is to encourage others to do the same if they’re able and highlight some organizations doing great work!

Discussion posts:

Challenges check-in:

  • 5/10 books read from my chosen TBR
  • 0/2 Austen books read (Northanger Abbey and Lady Susan)
  • 17/10+ read from books I own
  • 16/10+ read from my TBR
  • 194/150 books on my Goodreads TBR

In the book community:

Upcoming in December:

  • Some cookies and books!
  • Joining a book tour for a beautiful collection of poetry
  • More of my bookshelf tour

Well my Goodreads TBR keeps growing but I did read a lot more this month than I expected, even though it didn’t feel like it. I also caught up on a bunch of reviews! I don’t expect that to continue next month as I have more fun things planned but I do hope I get a lot of reading done.

What are your plans for December?
Any favourite blog posts of yours from last month?
