Honorable Mentions: I had a phenomenal month. Going to go with:

The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan

The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan

Revival by Stephen King

Midwinterblood by Marcus Sedgwick

Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

 Book That I Didn't Expect to Like As Much As I Did:  The Beast Within: A Tale of Beauty's Prince by Serena Valentino, because let's be honest, this could go very very wrong, and it took some really weird turns.

Longest in pages: Revival by Stephen King (surprise, surprise...), at 416 pages

Longest in minutes: The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan at 1,802 minutes (this would have beaten the above had I read it instead of listening.)

This is moderately late because maths.

 

I got through a lot of books this month. I'm definitely developing both an audiobook problem and a Wheel of Time problem (oooh, I get new credits on December 2, and I know what I'm buying). I'm loving listening to the books, too.

 

I had a great month with new authors and with new series. I am moderately behind on my reviews (let's face it, I'll always be behind on reviews), though I have some scheduled out so I don't overwhelm people. Does anyone else write them in clumps?

 

I read a whole lot of comics via Scribd, which was fun and got me into another new reading thing, because clearly I do not have enough to read on my plate. I also read The Great Gatsby for the first time, since apparently I was the only person not assigned it in school. That was actually kind of fun.

 

I have absolutely no plans for my reading next month, which is fun (except for the next Wheel of Time book. I may be obsessed.) I'm going to spend a chunk of time cleaning out my TBR list of stuff I actually, on second though, do NOT want to read and tidying up my Goodreads account (and eventually my Booklikes account, but much as I love it here, sorting out the shelving process is an entirely new undertaking).

 

I do want to finish a few things to round out the year, though, including Winter. Anyone else have any other ideas on stuff I totally ought to read? How was everyone else's November?
