Books I Read In November 2016

Titles that have nothing before them are books that I read for the first time.

Titles with this ** before them, are books that I re-read.

 Titles with # before them, are books that I read out loud to my little siblings.

Titles in ( ), are books borrowed from the Library.

  And while November's list isn't being posted on the last day of December, it's close to the last day!

** Aunt Crete's Emancipation ~ Grace Livingston Hill
** Cloudy Jewel ~ Grace Livingston Hill
** They Loved To Laugh ~ Kathryn Worth
Sapphire Ice ~ Hallee Bridgeman
Greater Then Rubies ~ Hallee Bridgeman
Christmas Diamond ~ Hallee Bridgeman
 Christmas Star Sapphire ~ Hallee Bridgeman
# ** The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers ~ J.R.R. Tolkien *
An Infamous Army ~ Georgette Heyer
Eragon ~ Christopher Paolini *
** These Old Shades ~ Georgette Heyer
(The Hunger Games) ~ Suzanne Collins *
(The Ruins of Gorlan) ~ John Flanagan *
** In My Father's House ~ Ann Rinaldi

* So TTT, we were reading it to my little siblings and it is so much fun to see their reactions.

* Eragon was definitely interesting.  I plan to read the rest of the series, but it didn't captivate me like most fantasy dragon stories do.

* The Hunger Games.  I read it on Thanksgiving Day and boy! it sure is a good book for making you thankful!  She is an amazing author and..wow!  It was really just an amazing story.  And guess which team I am?

* I'm really looking forward to reading the rest of the Ranger's Apprentice series.  Love Halt!  He is the best!

  1. I LOVE The Ruins of Gorlan! I've read it twice... and I need to read it again, 'cause I really need to get to the next books in the series. ;)

    Random question, but how did you make it snow on your blog? It looks darling!

    1. The Hunger Games is really good, horrifying, but good. I personally would recommend it to anyone under 15.....
