November Wrap-Up

I’ve really enjoyed my reading month in November, and have read some fantastic middle-grade books. The stand-out books for me this month were Sweep: The Story of a Girl and her Monster, The Chimeseekers and Shipwreck Island. I’ve really enjoyed introducing my class to the Barrington Stoke Young Editor’s work, where they can offer feedback on an upcoming title, which they absolutely loved. I’d definitely recommend this to any other teachers. I also really enjoyed attending a book launch for the first time in what seems like forever. Strictly speaking, it was at the beginning of December, not November, but it was before I’ve written this post! It was so lovely to catch up with some wonderful book bloggers, and meet some authors I greatly admire. And, it was my birthday at the start of the month, so I’ve included a section on the books I was given.

Books I’ve read:

I’ve read 12 books this month, physical copies, e-books and 4 audiobooks. I think this has been my best reading month for a while.


My Feedback Ratio is at 96%. I’m trying really hard not to request too many books, but I must admit that it’s very hard as there are some fantastic books on there! I did request The Mermaid in the Millpond, but I’ve read that quickly and submitted my review. I also just had to request A Storm of Sisters, the new Michelle Harrison, but then realised it is a sampler, so I’m just going to have to be patient and wait for the release in February.

Books sent by publishers/authors:

I have been lucky enough to have been sent these books by publishers and authors this month.

Books bought:

I have no control when it comes to buying books that I eventually intend to read and, despite knowing I was getting books for my birthday, I still managed to buy 12 books! From these, I have read Fledgling and The Chimeseekers, and I’ve almost finished The Very Merry Murder Club.

Birthday books!

I got 9 books for my birthday, all of which I might just have hinted at except for Mort which is one my husband read years ago, and wants to see if I’ll like!

That’s a wrap! How has your reading month been? Have you read any of these? Have you any of them on your TBR?

    1. Thank you! I’m intending to spend Christmas reading to make a very small dent in my TBR! I went to Kate Poel’s book launch for Pie-Rats. It was wonderful – in a bookshop with wine, badges and cake! Just so lovely to catch up with people IRL.
