What I'm reading in November

(photo credit)

I can't believe I'm finally at the stage where I kind-of know people who write books!

I don't "know-know" these authors, but maybe I "blog-know" them.

As my husband says, they are my "pretend friends".

I have several books by blogging friend authors, or friends of blogging friend authors on my shelf, and for whatever reasons haven't had the chance to read them yet.

November will be a month for catching up!  I'll be reading and posting reviews of these books by new authors, so you can get the chance to know them, too.

What are YOU reading in November?


  1. I have two sequels to read, Janice Hardy's Blue Fire and Kelley Armstrong's The Awakening, and two nonfics, plus two YA fantasies on the way (Graceling and (Girl of) Fire and Thorns). Should be good times.

  2. I've got some non-fic on my plate this month, but I always have time for YA. Just finished up Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols and plan to start Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta.

  3. I'm doing the same thing. I have two friends whose books are waiting for me to read. (One is a "pretend friend" and the other is a "real" friend.) It's so amazing to read books written by someone you know!

  4. I love kind-of-knowing, and developing pseudo-relationships with, published authors! :)

    This month I'm reading The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Your Best You by Bonnie Grove.

  5. Sophia- I've heard those are both great. Can't wait to read your reviews.

    jennifer... I get chills when I think about people reading Jellicoe Road. It's the BEST!

    Connie! One of these books is YOURS! I can't wait to dive in.

    Susan, HG is great, and I haven't heard of Your Best You, but it sounds inspiring.

  6. I just finished Blue Fire recently. I liked it more than The Shifter.

    This month I'm reading my requisite Avery Cates book. Since I started NaNoWriMo in 2009, I read one book from the Avery Cates series. I'm enjoying it immensely. If I finish that before December 1, I'll pick up Lola and the Boy Next Door.

  7. Ahh another blog where I can find books read....I need to get busy and post the stack that I've been through and have yet to review on my blog...and yes blog knowers are known....

  8. If that's your home library, I'm insanely jealous...

    I love that you don't "know-know" these authors, but you "blog-know" them. Your husband sounds like he has a sense of humor, too.

    And you've changed your blog header. Nice!

    I actually know a lot of people who write books! One of them is K.M. Walton, whose debut novel comes out in January (review and interview on my blog now).

    And I'm still reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone. Loving it. Almost finished. After that, I need to read some ARCs of books coming in the spring, like UNRAVELING by Elizabeth Norris.

  9. Funny. By real life friends call my bloggy friends "the imaginary people."
    I can't set a reading agenda for my TBR pile. New things keep stumbling to the top and pushing the others out of the way.


YAY for comments! Thanks for adding to the conversation.
