November 2016 Wrap-Up

screen-shot-2016-11-29-at-10-15-47-pmI cannot believe that today is the last day of November! Where did the time go?!

November was a crazy reading month for me; I got through 29 books this month. Whoa.

 What I Read: 

 Upcoming Releases I Read:

This month I read two pretty awesome books that are being published at the beginning of December. Missing by Monty Marsden and Wrong Number by Carys Jones. You can find my full reviews for these here and here.


I am participating on the blog tour for both titles so stay tuned for more about these reads!!

Books to Enjoy Now:

It’s never any fun to read only copies of books that are upcoming- then I have no one to discuss them with!  So I was sure to read a few neglected books that have been on my TBR shelf and get some books from my local library that were previously released.

I listed them in order of importance!  What I think should be read first is at the top and the ones, you could get to whenever you want, are closer to the bottom!

  1. So basically a book a day Sam!! I’m jealous and envious at the same time:) I thought I was a fast reader but I’m not in your ballpark! Lots of great reads in Nov for you, I’m glad you have a bunch we can try to get a hold of now. I still have Blood Wedding sitting on my shelf from the library.

  2. Hi Sam,

    Great to meet you, I am so pleased to have found your site 🙂

    I am totally in awe of your reading achievements this month, I can only dream of those figures!

    I shall be sure to stop by for recommendations now that I know you manage to read so prolifically, as it looks very much as though we enjoy the same type of books, although I do tend to mix in other genres from time to time.
