November review

November what did you do to me??

This month has been pitiful from a reading point of view. I'm really not finding anything at the moment to sink my teeth into and get excited about reading. I actually worked out I haven't read a five star book since April which is really sad. So here is my tiny little reading list for this month

Books Read
188) Captive by AJ Grainger (British Books Challenge)
189) It's not me, it's you (British Books Challenge)
190) All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
191) The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks
192) Serenity Leaves on the wind by Zack Whedon
193) Gone to Soldiers by Marge Piercey

I'm dying to read some new UKYA. My wishlist is primed and I'm hoping rather desparately that some of them start arriving at my door sooner rather than later.

Book of the month

I had two

YA wise it had to be AJ Grainger's Captive. If you like Sophie McKenzie you'll love it

Adult wise it was Mhairi  McFarlane because it was really sweet.

Events attended
I went to two wonderful events for bloggers in London yesterday. The first at Walker Books and the second at Macmillan. Both events were fabulous and I am so excited for pretty much all the titles spoke about at the events but especially Non Pratt's Remix.

On the Blog
I must admit the blog has been stupidly quiet this year anyway but November especially so. Quite simply school is sucking up all my time and energy (as can be seen with my lack of reading). Roll on the Christmas holidays ....

I reread the hunger games trilogy recently and wrote a post about having done so here
I read the Bane Chronicles and was very underwhelmed here
I read the disreputable history of frankie landau banks and reviewed it here

If you fancy reading my thoughts about positive reviews written after a certain author annoyed me somewhat with his rudeness on twitter check it out here 
I discussed Anti-Bullying week here 
These are the books I am excited about this month and added to my wishlist
I did the Readers Problems Book Tag

Blog Tours
The Bookshop Book Blog tour stopped off with a photo gallery of some gorgeous bookshops
The Art of being normal blog tour stopped off here with a guest post from author Lisa Williamson about her favourite opening chapters to books
