What I Read and Acquired in November (It's less shocking than October)
November has come to an end. Can you believe it? I can't. This year has flown by.
Just as I did last month, I am sharing a list of the books I read and acquired this month. The acquisition list is much less daunting than my October list. Remember that? It's probably best not to.
Here we go...
What I read in November
- The Wonder by Emma Donoghue - started at the end of October and finished in November
