20 books! Woot! Hopefully more this month.

In other news:

  • I hosted a Maria V. Snyder week at the beginning November - which ended with me hiking over to Michigan to see her and get some books signed! It was awesome!
  • I did my first blog tour with Tundra books for Medina Hill! I even had Trilby talk about her researching process.
  • Met Justine Larbalestier, revealed my Halloween costume and a few key kissing wedding photos in this Monday post.
  • Came up with some fantastic ideas of how to get all of you and myself reading in the new year. Check out these cool events.
  • I partook in turkey, pumpkin pie AND the Thankfully Reading Weekend. I didn't do as well as I would've liked, but I managed to read a bit.
  • I have a new blog design as of YESTERDAY! Right in time for my birthday month.
  • Speaking of birthdays.. December means the Birthday Bash - 20 days of prizes and at least 25 winners!

  3. Wow you read and reviewed a ton of AWESOME books this month!

  4. I don't know how some people read so much in a month. I always feel like I'm slacking when I see other bloggers reading 20+ books a month.

    I'm happy you did it though and good luck on even more in December!

  5. You beat me by a few books last month. I'm going to try and kick it in gear this month.

  6. What a great month for you! I think I only read 4-5, the season season is slowing me down lol

  7. Wow 20 books read and you got to meet some great authors too.

  8. I love the background, it's amazing

  9. You got a lot of books read, good job! I'm trying to step it up myself,

  10. Wow you read heaps of books this month. I'm trying to read a lot more too. Good luck with December.

  11. I need to start reading more. I didn't get very many books read in November.

  12. You just reminded me I need to do my Monthly Reads post for November - not as impressive as yours though. You read some great ones.
    I Mooched a copy of Poison Study - so happy!

  13. Wow! That is an impressive amount of books.

  14. Oh my gosh! You read so many books each month; wish I had that kind of time, too. I'll be checking these out!

  15. Wow, 20 books in a month is very good! I've been coveting Fallen & Beautiful Creatures for a while.

  16. I'm a big fan of Jack of the Fables but I haven't read Vol 5 yet. Can't wait to hear what you think!

  17. I am a huge Maria V Snyder fan! In fact, a few of her books are on my christmas list

  18. Such a busy month! So many wonderful reviews and your layout is awesome, I love it! The efficiency of all you book bloggers awes me. The amount of books and book-related things you get through in a month is awesome!

  19. how do you keep up with everything? seriously? I am lucky to get through two books a month. Maybe I should start counting my picture books. I read about 5 a day. :)


Leave some love!
