In November I read 6 books for a total of 1,870 pages and an average of 62 pages per day. This has been the least productive reading month I’ve had all year, but I’m not surprised.
With the exception of The Nature of Balance, at least everything I read was great. I mean, Blood Sugar really had me feeling weird and upset, but it was by no means a bad book. I really should have DNF’d Balance, but I really wanted to see how it concluded. Turns out it wasn’t worth my time. -___- But Hollow Kingdom was amazing and by far my favorite read and I can’t wait to own a copy so I can read it again!

Better Reads Challenge:
Happy to report I read a little every day, even if it was only like two pages before I passed out. I’ve already missed one day of reading in December, but I’m still on track for an amazing year. This has been a fun stat to look at.
