November 2017 Wrap-Up

November was a slower month for me, with only 11 books (3 audiobooks) but some of that was because I was sick and either didn't do much of anything or watched more TV than usual. Plus I keep starting new books without finishing the previous ones.


I had a few disappointments, as you can see from the ratings, but my reread of the first two books of the Split Worlds series (recommended for urban fantasy fans who aren't looking for thinly disguised romance novels) as well as Infidel helped make my month. I should probably give an honourable mention to Footsteps in the Dark too since the banter was so fun.
