November Reading Wrap-up

I am afraid to do this post, LOL. I have no idea how many books I actually read in November and I don't really want to see how far from my reading challenge goals I am. I have already started thinking about my goals for next year, but maybe I need to focus on completing this year first!

I finished 8 books in November and DNF 1. Click on the cover of the book if you want to read my review.

Stacking the Shelves #50, Sunday Post #47, Sunday Salon #41

Hey bookish friends! How are things going for you? I am doing pretty good. Our carpet was replaced yesterday (5 days early 😀😀😀) so today we are FINALLY unpacking everything we have not been able to unpack (like my 📚📚📚📚)!!! I might go out and do some Christmas shopping as well, but it will mostly be unpacking and organizing!

First Line Friday #71-Love's New Beginnings

Welcome back to First Line Friday hosted by Carrie at Reading is My SuperPower!! It has been several weeks since I have been able to participate, so I am excited to jump back in this week. I am also linking up with Gilion on Rose City Reader for Book Beginnings. This is where you share the beginning of the book that you are reading. To join in the fun grab the book you are reading and leave a comment with the first line (or your link). This week I am reading Love's New Beginnings by Penny Zellar. It is the prequel to Forgotten Memories. It is set to release December 13, 2022.

Can't Wait Wednesday-Pretty Little Pieces

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Typically they are books that have not been released yet. This week I am sharing Pretty Little Pieces by Carmen Schober. This will be a new-to-me author, but I think the book sounds great! I actually won a copy, so I will have it soon after it releases!! It comes out December 6, 2022.

Top Ten Tuesday-Wintry Reads

Happy Tuesday, my bookish friends!! I hope you all are doing well. Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic is Cozy reads. I am not really feeling that topic (I have a hard time deciding what is a cozy read). I looked back over previous TTT topics and one was "cozy reads/wintry reads" so I decided to go with wintry reads, especially since it already feels like winter here in Ohio, LOL! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and you can head over there to see what our other bookish friends are up to today. 

10ish Wintry Reads that I own (so why haven't I read them 😂):
