November Reads

It’s almost December, y’all! Which means it’s almost the end of the year already.  Is anyone else happy to see this year make its way out the door? I know I am. Good. Riddance!

This month I got a little more reading in. Usually when the holidays roll around is when I read the least. I get so busy that I can’t sit down and have a minute to myself. But not this year – which is a weird double-edged sword. While I love the extra time I have, I’m sad that life is a little different this holiday season. We will get through it, though one book at a time.

Here’s a few of the books I curled up with this month:

Open Book by Jessica Simpson I have heard soooo many people recommend this memoir and WHEW was it salacious! I was for sure a little teeny-bopper when I was a kid in the 90s and while I do remember Jessica Simpson hitting the scene, I don’t recall listening to her a lot. However, I always really respected her. This book made me respect her even more. She’s so open and honest about her life which I really enjoyed.

How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X Kendi I read this book for a virtual book club I signed up for. I’ve dabbled in book clubs once or twice before with friends but they rarely took off. The zoom discussion with a small and diverse group really helped break down a lot of the more intricate themes of the book. Book club or not, though, I highly recommend this book. I learned so much from it.

Hallowe’en Party by Agatha Christie I finally finished this one! I started it on my honeymoon two years ago and lost track of it. So I picked it back up in October hoping to get as many horror reads in as possible – which did not happen. Overall it was a good murder mystery surrounding the questionable death of a young girl at a Halloween Party. However, it didn’t hold my interest for very long. The formal dialogue threw me off a bit, too. I enjoy a good Agatha Christie novel but this one was not my favorite.

I can’t wait to sit by my Christmas tree and cozy up with some more reads this month. I haven’t set a list of books to read because I’m not sure what this month will bring. I’m hoping to just roll with it and read some fun things.
