Month in Review: November 2020

This year I was very happy to participate in Nonfiction November, having read a lot of great nonfiction and eager to share with other readers. It was a wonderful event!

I did not get a lot of new reading done. Besides finishing and reviewing Danubia for Nonfiction November, I was mostly reading through the Queen’s Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner, because I wanted to refresh my memory before enjoying the final volume, Return of the Thief (which I’m nearly done with now). What a pleasure it has been to watch this series evolve over the years. Bravo to MWT for bringing it to a worthy close.

This month I gave up on my French reading club book, L’énigme de chambre 622 by Joel Dicker. It was not interesting enough to hold my attention, especially in a foreign language. And far too long! We’re moving on to another book, La femme au carnet rouge by Antoine Laurain, and I’m looking forward to that.

What were your highs and lows this month?

    1. It was a welcome counterbalance to other phenomena this month. Good to hear you’d like to participate next year, it is a great event.

    1. As with all of the books it could only benefit from an immediate reread, to get all the nuances one missed the first time around. Such a great series!

  1. I totally forgot about Nonfiction November! I did read some nonfiction picture books that I really enjoyed this month–one was about the Wright Brothers and the other about the inventor of the Band-aid. I hope your December is going well!
