November 2016 Bookish Wrap Up And December Feature Announcement

Flipping heck, where is time going? I completely missed doing an October wrap up (which I will still get round to doing I promise!) and I'm already late putting this together. But here it is!

Life Of A Nerdish Mum continues to get busier and busier and though it can be hectic and stressful, I really enjoy it and the challenge. I also seem to have started to get my reading groove back (but shhh in case I scare it off) so I seem to be getting through books again. In November I read 10 books which were

The Exiled by Kati Hiekkapelto - 5 Stars
Isabella's Adventures In Numberland by Peta Rainford - 5 Stars
Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea by Jules Verne - 5 Stars
Saving Sophie by Sam Carrington - 5 Stars
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare - 4 Stars
All Things I Can Do by Lilly Rowe - 5 Stars
Pee Wee The Christmas Tree by George Wells - 4 Stars
For The Love Of Shakespeare by Beth Miller - 5 Stars
There Will Be Lies by Nick Lake - 4 Stars
Nimona by Noelle Stevenson - 5 Stars

As usual I have linked the reviews that are already up and will add the others as they go up too. I participated in some really exciting blog tours and I have plenty more coming up in the future.

My Getting To Know... feature continued and is as popular as ever and I am currently writing the last few questions for the next set of guests. Though I'm horribly behind as real life got in the way due to my white goods all hating me apparently! The guest featured in November were

Kaisha Holloway - The Writing Garnet
Lindsay Stanberry-Flynn - Author of The Broken Road 
Emma Welton - Damp Pebbles
F J Curlew - Author of To Retribution
Rebecca Bradley - Author of Three Weeks Dead
Nicky Clifford - Author of Never Again
Ben Parker - Author of Beetlebrow
Peter Taylor-Gooby - Author of The Baby Auction
Lorraine Rugman - The Book Review Cafe

I still thoroughly enjoy getting these together and it's still so exciting when an author or blogger agrees to take part.

Now onto my December feature announcement! I've been working on this since January so I really hope you enjoy it!

Starting on Tuesday the 13th of December I will be doing my 12 Days and 12 Books of Christmas feature, coming to an end of Christmas Eve. Each day I will share the book that I loved the most from each month this year and do a mini spot light on it. I've really been looking forward to this coming together and I'm really excited to be sharing my choices with everyone!

So that's my November wrap up, what did you read in November? Did you buy any awesome books? Are you looking forward to my 12 Days and 12 Books of Christmas?


  1. You're 12 days / 12 books of Christmas sounds like a great idea. I only ever manage to read about 2 books a month, so I'm in awe of people who can read so many. I look forward to your recommendations.

    1. Thank you very much! I think reading anything is wonderful, so two books a month is great.
