November 2012 Monthly Recap

Posted by Jessi (Geo) on December 2, 2012 | 0 Comments

This has so not been a good reading month for me. You’ll see under my book reviews that I’ve only finished four – FOUR! – books this whole freaking month (My average is 11-12). I discussed this in my Books I Didn’t Finish post, in which I blame Days of Blood and Starlight (amazing), Stormdancer (epic), and ICED (awesomely epic) for leaving me with a triple book hangover the size of Africa.
In other news, I’m now co-hosting my very first reading challenge, along with Megan from Megan Likes Books: the 2013 Paranormal Reading Challenge! Sign ups opened last week, and we’re growing a fabulous list of participants! Sign ups are HERE if you’re interested. :)
