October & November wrap-up

October & November wrap-up

Monthly wrap-upI am seriously neglecting this blog. I have been thinking (but not too often) about what I want to do with the blog and for now I am okay with the way it is. Life is happening, and it’s all good, and that’s okay.

So I will drop wrap-ups here now and then and I will of course do my long end-of-year wrap-up. I am reading and have in the past days met my goal of 75 books this year, so enough food for that end-of-year wrap-up in a few weeks!

Read in October

  1. God’s Boat by Kaori Ekuni
  2. Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan
  3. Under the Udala Trees by Chinelo Okparanta
  4. The Teahouse Fire by Ellis Avery

Read in November

  1. Affinity by Sarah Waters
  2. The Turn of the Screw by Henry James
  3. Bij ‘t graf van een denker by J. Groneman

October was The Literary Others. I was going to participate actively, but alas. I did host a giveaway over at Roofbeamreader’s, and was lucky enough to win a book myself. I ended up reading 4 books (but finished the last one in November), and all were amazing!

November was just a whole lot of eh. I started reading Cixin Liu’s Death’s End, the last volume in the Remembrance of Earth’s Past series. That was a slow read and took up most of my November.

Reading for the rest of 2016
I have finished my Goodreads challenge of reading 75 books. I am now trying to finish my current book, Queer: A Graphic History. I also plan to pick up Haruki Murakami’s Hard-boiled Wonderland and the End of the World and my Christmas read will be Jeanette Winterson’s Christmas Days: 12 Stories and 12 Feasts for 12 Days. The last two+ weeks of the year are looking very busy, so who knows if I’ll even manage to finish these three books!
