Just five books read last month but a nice mix - mostly fiction with one nonfiction/memoir. I read one YA novel and listened to one audio book. I managed to fit in a classic and short stories (all in one!). And yes, I am aware that two of the books I read (I actually read/listened to them at the same time) both had "end of the world" in the title - kind of scary!
Progress on 2016 Reading Challenges:
This is my favorite part of my monthly summary - updating my Reading Challenges! I read 2 more TBR books in November for my Read Your Own Damn Books Challenge - that's a total of 21 so far this year (and many more to go). For the Monthly Motif Reading Challenge, November was nonfiction month - and I read a memoir! That also counts for my 2016 Nonfiction Reading Challenge which brings my nonfiction total for the year so far up to 10. I added 1 classic to the 2016 Classics Challenge - still just 4 classics so far this year! For my Travel the World in Books Reading Challenge, I added 2 books both set in France. I am also tracking the states my books are set in, even though there is no Where Are You Reading challenge this year, and I added California last month.
Finally, I filled 15 spaces on my monthly Bookish Bingo hosted by Chapter Break - not my best month but not bad (you can join the fun any month without officially joining a challenge). Here's my Bingo card for November:
My books filled these spaces:
