November Wrap-Up

Oh dear! This has definitely been my worst month for reading and blogging since I started blogging. The month started with a week long residential with Year 6 which was great fun, but completely exhausting. I then got ill and have not been able to fully recover – still got a cough and not sleeping as well as I should be, despite how tired I feel. Then, there’s Christmas production, and completing the myriad tasks for my subject leadership responsibilities not to mention planning, marking and prep. I’m definitely looking forward to a break over Christmas!

Books I’ve read:

I only finished 6 books in November, but they were all books I loved, especially Crownbreaker and Saving Neverland.


My feedback ratio is still at 97% and I have now given feedback for 94 books. Not sure I’ll make my 100 books end-of-year target but I’ll not be far off! I have only requested one book which is the new one by one of my very favourite authors, Sinead O’Hart.

Books sent by publishers:

I am grateful to Publishers for sending me these books this month:

Books bought:

I’ve bought 9 books this month.

How has your reading month been? Have you read any of these? Have you any of them on your TBR?

  1. Sorry to hear that you’ve had a rough month Mary; six books read is amazing considering all that you have on your plate! I bought and read the Val McDermid for my hospital library book club last December and loved it. Short stories are great at this busy time of year and she is such a skilful writer that she builds fabulous characters and plots brilliantly in few words. I have just been in Bath today and managed to buy a signed copy of the new Fleur Hitchcock which I hope to enjoy next weekend 😊 Take care and don’t push yourself too hard at this end of term 💚


    1. Thank you Veronica. I fully intend to relax and do very little over Christmas – eat, drink and reading for me! I’m looking forward to the Val McDermid collection. Hope you’ve had a chance to read Fleur’s new book. I’ve just spent two days making bread with my class, then two Christmas Production performances of Scrooged … nearly there!
