Lora's Rants and Reviews

My own unapologetic opinions on books and writing. I DO NOT accept review requests but only review books I choose to read and I don't post reviews on Amazon. I'm also persnickity about genre and plot.

November Wrap-up

Devil's Day - Andrew Michael Hurley Captives of the Flame (The Fall of the Towers, #1) - Samuel R. Delany Dark Carnival - Nancy K. Duplechain Fools and Mortals - Bernard Cornwell First Person: A novel - Richard Flanagan Children's book: Moshe Comes to Visit: Fun Rhyming book about Overcoming fears and positive thinking - Tehila Sade Moyal, Fatima Pires Ramses the Damned: The Passion of Cleopatra - Anne Rice, Christopher Rice The Discovery of Witches - Hopkins,  Matthew

Eight books finished this month and two more well in progress. An easy favourite among the above would be Fools and Mortals, but Cornwell is a great author. Dark Carnival gets the award for best indie and I've put her other two books on my ereaderiq list.

 

This was mostly a month for clearing Netgalley and fulfilling holiday Bingo reads. I have one and a half netgalley books still to finish and highly recommend The Toy Makers, which I'm halfway through! I also have the science book to finish for my Newtonmass square, but it's time travel so I'm enjoying that too.

 

I have some books put aside for this year's Christmas reads.  I'll post about those soon.
