November Books

Another month has come and gone!  As I mentioned last month, I completed my Goodreads challenge already, but I'm still pressing on to see where I end up at the end of the year!

This month, I am kind of disappointed with myself because I only managed to finish one book.  In my defense, I have been listening to a book on Audible that is really long, and as of the date of this writing, I have about 40 minutes left.  So I was close.

I technically finished the following book at about 12:30 AM on December 1st.  But I'm still counting it as a November book because I read furiously to finish it and since I hadn't gone to bed before finishing it, it counts (and Goodreads thought so, too because it's listed as finished on November 30th).

Dragonfly in Amber (Outlander, #2)Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this next installment of the Outlander series. The only reason that I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that I found myself being a little confused at certain points throughout the story. As the story goes from 1968 back to the 1700s and back to 1968 again, I found myself confused about how there can be so much left to talk about in Claire and Jamie's story.

BUT overall, I loved the story, and I was moved to tears again in places. I am very excited to begin reading Voyager!

I have failed terribly at reading this year. I knew I'd read a lot less this year, but I have only managed one measly book. Pathetic!

So glad you are loving these books! I need to start An Echo In the Bone (book 7, I think) one of these days, but with my new super short commute I find that I am hardly reading anymore! I need to find another way to set aside some quality reading time. I remember at some point around book 3/4/5 maybe they really get into a lot of war/battles and I found that a little boring, but I loved the series overall so much! Still one of my all-time favorites.
