November 2009 Reading Wrap-up

I’ve had very little on my plate in November, aside from NaNoWriMo.  So I managed to read quite a few books, which has been nice.  I suspect December will be equally as empty; I still don’t have any job leads despite a huge number of applications.  Here’s the breakdown of what I read by genre:

Fantasy/Science Fiction

  • Heart’s Blood by Juliet Marillier
  • Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews
  • Definitely Dead by Charlaine Harris
  • Smoke and Mirrors by Neil Gaiman
  • A Scanner Darkly by Philip K. Dick
  • Touch the Dark by Karen Chance
  • All Together Dead by Charlaine Harris
  • From Dead to Worse by Charlaine Harris

Literary Fiction

  • Nocturnes by Kazuo Ishiguro
  • Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel (also historical fiction)
  • Angels of Destruction by Keith Donohue

Non-fiction

YA/MG

Historical Fiction

Humor

Women’s Fiction

  • Very Valentine by Adriana Trigiani

That makes 24 books this month, not bad at all!  I’m actually up to 272 for the entire year.  Part of me is curious as to whether I can read almost a book a day in December and hit 300, but most of me is not really planning to do that.  My hubby will end up taking off work for something like two weeks this month between the days off we were saving to visit my parents for Christmas (which now sadly we cannot do) and regular Christmas holiday.  Overall I think I’d rather spend time with him while I can than try and read fiendishly!  In terms of quality, this month was decent.  I read a lot of good reads, but had a few that I struggled through, like Wolf Hall and A Scanner Darkly.

How was your reading in November?
