"She thought it over, but couldn’t see any immediate loopholes other than the threat of her inner slut emerging, and she could darned well control that little bitch."— Susan Elizabeth Phillips

November Roundup

I'm so glad November is over and I wish I could look forward to next year but I have a feeling the next four years are going to be soul crushing. I had a bit of a reading slump but I do think I had higher quality reads this month. Thanks to the 12 Tasks of the Festive Season challenge, I ended up writing up at least some thoughts on books I normally would probably just rate. 


December is my Romancies Awards so I won't be doing a Reading Roundup for the month. You get the best of the year instead :)


Links are to my review or the book page if I didn't write one, the 12 Tasks of Festive Season reads are in italics.

I had higher rated books this month but 15 is a fairly low number for me, the election had me floundering a bit and reading took a backseat. December is such a busy month for me and I tend to do re-reads, but I also want to make my reading goal for the year and am 5 books behind. I'm going to try and kick it into gear!
