Musing Mondays (Nov 30): NaNoWinner and Other Stuff

Want to participate in Musing Mondays? Check out A Daily Rhythm


Well, NaNoWriMo is drawing to a close, and it looks like I won!






Before I do my crazy celebratory dance, I want to thank you for being patient with me this past month. I have been a little absent from my blog, as the first draft of my novel ate up most of my free time. So thank you :)


 
 
 
Now that I'm done with my own, I'm happy to dive in other people's books again.

I am currently working on my review for Jane Eyre,
 

 
plus, there's a whole bunch of books I want to R&R before 2016. Some of them have been on my TBR for a long time, others I just randomly picked out at the library.
 
Cleo,
by Helen Brown
 
The full title of this book is Cleo: How an Uppity Cat Helped Heal a Family. I've been wanting to read this book for a very long time.
 
 
The Man in the High Castle,
by Philip K. Dick
 
Still listening to the audio version of Dick's acclaimed novel about an alternate history, where Germany and Japan have won the World War II. So far, I'm really liking it.
 
Orange Is The New Black,
by Piper Kerman
Before I watch the immensely popular Netflix series, I think it's a good idea to read the book it's based on.  
 
The Handmaid's Tale,
by Margaret Atwood
Atwood tells us about a world where women are not allowed to read and are only valued for their ovaries, and one woman who remembers her happier past.  
 
Creepypasta: Spökhistorier från Internet
by Jack Werner
 
In this Swedish book, the journalist Jack Werner retells and analyses some of the creepiest creepypasta that can be found online. I'm really looking forward to reading this book.
 
An Appetite for Wonder,
by Richard Dawkins
 
Memoirs of one of the most famous and controversial scientists of our time, Richard Dawkins. This will be the first book about and/or by a scientist I will be reviewing for this blog.  
 
So, what will you be reading this December?
