  2. Great line up for November Kathryn can't wait to see what's up in December with you!

  3. You had an impressive reading month! I'm waiting one more day to post my wrap-up...I might finish another book...

    Big Little Lies and Language of Flowers were both favorites of mine when I read them.

  4. I can't believe the month is over!! I'm not ready for December.
    You had a really great reading month. Great job!!

  5. Oh yay! Thank you so much for reading Dear Carolina! I hope you enjoyed it!! xo Kristy

    1. I did enjoy it and have a review to post when I have space. I could not believe it when I saw it sitting on the library bookshelf in a small town library in New Zealand. Was delighted - someone at our Kapiti library has taste!

  6. I enjoyed the Language of Flowers and my book club enjoyed it too. It looks like Nov. was a good month for you! have a great December!

  7. You had a such a great reading month Kathryn and I see so many good books - Dear Carolina, The Language of Flowers, and Big Little Lies!!! I need to get back to Jennifer Chiaverini's quilt series - I only read the first one, which I loved, but then got hooked on her historical fiction stand-alones.

    Hope you have a great December!!!

  8. You had a fantastic month for books! Happy December!

  9. Hi,
    You had a great month of books. Enjoy December reading.
    Have a great day!

  10. What a great month! Yay, you read The Book Thief. I love that novel, it makes me cry so much but it's so good. Hope you have a wonderful December!

  11. Nice job on only spending $5.21 on books this month! I have 'The Book Thief', and I've yet to read it. I really need to get to that! :)

    I hope you have a wonderful December!

  12. I really enjoyed The Language of Flowers, a few years ago

  13. Wow, 18?? You put me to shame! lol

    I loved The Book Thief and The Language of Flowers. Looks like you read quite a variety last month - and are doing well at wrapping up your 2015 challenges!
