I knew my reading would slow down in November. I participated in National Novel Writing Month (and got about 10K words done) and was studying for an exam for my job. I'm pleased that I was able to finish two books despite everything else on my plate.
by Liane MoriartyThis book had so many characters and so many things going on, at times it was hard for me to follow. Mostly because I was only able to read in short bursts instead of long stretches. Eventually, though, it all wove together and there were some really interesting characters and story lines. I'm not sure any of the characters were especially likeable though.

I sought out this book after a few reader bloggers I follow kept mentioning it. After reading it, I understand why it's been so heavily discussed. It's a fascinating story even if it's not a particularly happy one. There really aren't any bright spots in the book, but it gave me a lot to think about. And I breezed through it in just a few days because I had a hard time putting it down.
I'm currently behind schedule on my reading goal for the year. Guess I better get to turning those pages.
