We’re almost there! As the Reading New England challenge nears its end, the contributions have slowed, but they’re still coming and are as fantastic as ever. Thanks so much to all of you.
Next month, be sure to watch for the final Wrap-up and Giveaway post. You don’t need to be a challenge participant to enter, but those who have completed six or more reviews will gain chances to win extra books! But remember that to qualify, you MUST post your links to either the Genre Post or State Post linkups (choose one, as you can’t cross-post the same review to both).
And remember, if you’d like to finish the year by reading something together, the title I’ve chosen is Mayflower by Nathaniel Philbrick. Even if you haven’t been participating in the challenge, you’re welcome to join us in December for this readalong, which is co-hosted by Doing Dewey’s Nonfiction Book Club.
Here are the reviews that came my way this month:
- Penni of Penni’s Perceptions enjoyed two very different Connecticut books, A Study in Charlotte and The Passion of Reverend Nash.
- Stephanie from Adventures of a Bibliophile found a twisted modern fable in Horns.
- Laurie of Relevant Obscurity went back to the classics with Edith Wharton’s Summer, and celebrated Witch Week with Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House.
