Literary Life: November in Review

December, the month of food and festiveness (and shininess – possibly the most important part). While I don’t miss November, I don’t really remember experiencing it either. So although I know I should be skipping the Christmas dance now, I feel a little out of kilter.

I want to curl up with a book, but alas, I won’t be able to do that properly till Christmas. Instead, I’ll cheer myself up by buying a Christmas party dress – shopping makes everything better (apart from debt, it definitely makes debt worse).

Currently Reading:

Fates and Furiesย by Lauren Groff



I’ve Read:

  1. My Sister’s Secret by Tracy Buchanan
  2. A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K. Le Guin
  3. Spectacles by Sue Perkins
  4. Medea and Other Plays by Euripides
  5. Wallis by Anne Edwards
  6. I Call Myself A Feminist ed. by Victoria Pepe

How was your literary November? What was the best book you read?

  1. December is definitely the month of food and festiveness…but don’t tempt me with a new dress! My favourite read of November has to be the gothic Jamaica Inn by Daphne du Maurier – perfect for this time of year. Happy reading in December ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. I wish in some ways that I could remember not experiencing November as a coworker passed away unexpectedly. However, despite that, and actually in a roundabout way because of that, I was able to have a good reading month, with my favorite read of the month probably being The Crossing by Michael Connelly. I probably won’t be curling up with a book until around Christmas either with the way things are going.


  2. Have you gotten the party dress yet? Are you going to post a picture of the dress you end up buying? I love seeing new dresses! I have way too many clothes right now and have imposed a moratorium on buying new dresses, but God I love buying new dresses. And a Christmas party dress would be especially great because RED. I look GREAT in red. Pls let me live vicariously through you.
