It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (December 04): 12/04/17
The second Thanksgiving with our So. Cal. relatives was so much fun! It was also the first time in fifteen years that we had room for houses guests to stay the night.
I finished Nanowrimo a couple days early. My novel, plot-wise, is only about a quarter finished. I will keep going with it either on my own over the next few months. If I don't, I'll pick up part two next November.
Cybils round one is wrapping up. We're starting to think about what day we're going to meet to make our short list. It's been a good year of reading.
Now that the new year is rapidly approaching, I've started planning out my reading for 2018. Books I'm currently excited about include:

Good luck with the Cybils!

Thanks. We're almost done with round one.

How great to be able to house guests! I've only had one house in all these years in which I could do that. Now I can have only a couple of guests at a time. LOL.
Enjoy those books. They look tempting. The Kristan Higgins book is one I've been noticing. Here are my weekly updates.

Their visit was a huge success. They're coming back for a week for New Years.

Tess of the Road and 49 other review book are already on my stack for 2018 reading. It looks like it should be a great year. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

No review books here. My list is of ones I'm planning to buy or borrow from the library.
Comment #9: Monday, December 04, 2017 at 14:19:21
Glad NaNo went well, and your second Thanksgiving too. Hard to believe it's December already...
Kitty Cornered looks fun, as does Book Clubbed.
Comment #10: Monday, December 04, 2017 at 22:35:00
Nanowrimo and second Thanksgiving were both fun. I've found Book Clubbed the more entertaining of the two books.

How fun to be planning ahead!
The title Murder is Bad Manners gave me a chuckle! I'm going to have to look for that one. :)

The U.S. edition (aka Murder is Bad Manners) has some big flaws. If you can, find the original.

You certainly have had a successful end-of-the-year, what with completing NaNoWriMo, reading the Cybils, and your regular reading!
Comment #14: Tuesday, December 05, 2017 at 22:29:00
I'm looking forward to getting back reading for fun and for research.
Comment #15: Monday, December 04, 2017 at 22:47:14
I enjoyed Patina, though not quite as much as Ghost, which was a hard book to top. I'll be curious to see what you think! I also have a Lorna Barrett book sitting on my nightstand that I keep picking up and putting down without getting through the first chapter. I wonder if I should try it on audio before giving up. She seems like an author whose books I should like. My reading week is here.
Comment #16: Tuesday, December 05, 2017 at 22:30:00
Lorna Barrett writes some very unlikable characters. I'm not sure I could stand them in print. However the two different narrators who have worked on the series have made these characters believable and relatable, even if they still aren't particularly likable.

Wow! You've been really busy. So many reviews posted and it looks like you have a lot more coming soon.
Comment #18: Tuesday, December 05, 2017 at 22:34:00
For the next few months at least, I'll be posting a review each and every day.
Comment #19: Tuesday, December 05, 2017 at 06:20:30
I haven't read any of Jason Reynolds' novels yet, and I feel that I am missing out on so much - you have so much great reads this week! Good on you. :)
Comment #20: Tuesday, December 05, 2017 at 22:36:00
I really like his books. I hope you give him a try.
Comment #21: Tuesday, December 05, 2017 at 07:01:07
Wow, sounds like you have some great reading ahead of you. Good for you in planning. I hope you have a great week!
Comment #22: Wednesday, December 06, 2017 at 22:18:00
It has been so far — although I've had to bump some books ahead in line because they're due at the library tomorrow.
Comment #23: Wednesday, December 06, 2017 at 08:35:41
Well done for finishing NaNo! That's awesome. Also well done on being so forward planned on you reading!
Glad you enjoyed the house guests and I hope you're having a great week this week!
Comment #24: Wednesday, December 06, 2017 at 22:23:00
It was a fun weekend. I hope to stay on top of my reading — or at least continuing with the flow I have now. I like how it's working at the moment.
Comment #25: Tuesday, December 05, 2017 at 17:55:03
Wow! what a variety of books. Why did I come here? Now I have even more books I want to read. The good news is that I can fit them into the challenges I am going to participate in! Thanks for such a good post.
Comment #26: Wednesday, December 06, 2017 at 22:26:00
That's the fun and the danger of this weekly meme! Thanks for stopping by.
Comment #27: Tuesday, December 05, 2017 at 18:48:11
Wow, I'm so impressed that you're already planning for 2018! And so many good books to look forward to!
I still have an entire TBR bookcase waiting for me, so I have plenty to choose from.
Enjoy your books this week -

The planning ahead is also to help me budget. I don't want to overbuy. One new book is a reasonable amount for me.
