November Reading Wrap Up

 



𝗡𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗺𝗯𝗲𝗿 𝗥𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗪𝗿𝗮𝗽 𝗨𝗽

It feels like I blinked and November was over. In some ways it felt like a busy month, but it really wasn’t. My husband had both his knees replaced at the beginning of the month. So the rest of the month was spent on his recovery from surgery, starting his PT, and doing a lot of the things he usually does around the house- like walking the dogs a million times a day. So I only managed to read 8 books for the month. Here’s the breakdown: 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
🎧 Desert Star - author Michael Connelly once again proves he’s the master of police procedurals. 

Everybody Knows- a gritty noir set in LA that looks at the darker side of power and the entertainment business. Thank you @netgalley and @mulhollandbooks for the digital arc. Publishes 1/10/23. 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
🎧 The Last Chairlift- a long book examining love, family, sex and politics. Thank you @simon.audio for the gifted book. 

🎧 The Book of Cold Cases- really wanted to read this during spooky season by my library hold wasn’t available in time. This was an entertaining thriller with a side of supernatural. 

🎧 Racing the Light- author Robert Crais’s new installment featuring PI Elvis Cole and Joe Pike. Crais always delivers a solid and entertaining thriller. 

⭐️⭐️⭐️💫
The House in the Pines- this one was just all right for me. Didn’t love it, didn’t hate it. I figured out the secret easily enough. The ambiguous ending leaves the door open for a sequel. Thank you @netgalley and @penguinbooks for the digital arc. Publishes 1/3/23. 

⭐️⭐️⭐️
The Wheel of Doll- I really enjoyed the first book in this series, but this second book fell flat. 

Cackle- this was my book club’s read and was meh for me. Thought there would be more witchy girl power. My favorite character was a spider, so that pretty much tells you all you need to know. 

QOTD: what’s on your December TBR? I should have 2 library holds ready this month. Been waiting awhile for them.
