The Wrap Up: November Edition

Welcome to my monthly wrap-up! I hope that you've had a great month.

Please leave a link to your blog (if you have one) in your comment or make sure your Disqus profile has your address so that I can visit you back! 

I try to link all book covers to Goodreads or to my review (if there is one) which is in turn linked to Goodreads.

Wow. December. That came up fast.

I managed to check a few books off my reading list although I'm sitting steady at about 6 books behind schedule. It's not looking good to hit my target this year but the good news is that I've already set a lot of the books that I'd like to read throughout next year and I've decided to do a lot of the backlist series I'll keep saying that I'll read and never do. I'm also going to TRY keep my ARC pile to a minimum... Let's see how I go!

Here's a tentative list of the 'first in a series' that I really want to get into. Which should I get to first???

The Raven Boys-Maggie Stiefvater
Falling Kingdoms-Morgan Rhodes
Shatter Me-Tahereh Mafi
The Winner's Curse-Marie Rutkoski 
Daughter of Smoke and Bone-Laini Taylor
Burn for Me -Illona Andrews
The Falconer-Elizabeth May
Ink and Bone-Rachel Caine
The Bear and The Nightingale-Katherine Arden
Magic Bites-Illona Andrews
Kiss of Deception-Mary E Pearson
Poison Princess-Kresley Cole
The Emperor's Edge-Lindsay Buroker
The Star Touched Queen-Roshani Chokshi

A huge thank-you to Annette Marie and Thomas Nelson

Reading Progress:

I managed to hold my reading progress steady in November: At least I didn't fall behind even further like in October! I also read more ARCs than anything else and the most I've ever read in a month. Also different in November was the fact that I had ZERO rereads! 

With November being heavy in ARCs I'm now at a total of 40% ARCs and a fairly even spread of re-reads and 'from my tbr' books although to be fair, some of my ARCs would have been 'from my TBR' even if I hadn't received review copies.

How was your month? Did you hit your reading goals? Did anything noteworthy happen? Have we read any of the same books?
