November TBR List Winner

Thank you for helping me decide what book from my TBR collection I should read next:

My TBR List is a meme hosted by the awesome Michelle at Because Reading. It’s a fun way to choose a book from your TBR pile to read. The 1st Saturday of every month, I will list 3 books I am considering reading and take a poll as to which you think I should read. I will read the winner that month, and my review will follow (unfortunately, not likely in the same month, but eventually--that's all I can promise). 




I hope you all are enjoying your weekend! Mouse had her last soccer game of the season this morning. I am looking forward to being able to sleep in a little on Saturday mornings again. It was a relatively quiet day after that. I managed to get caught up on my book review writing, which I had fallen behind in. Mouse and I had a little tea party with quite a variety of snacks (and no tea). She invited her new unicorn which she got from our next door neighbor who is having a yard sale.

This evening there was a parent's meeting for the dance studio's Christmas showcase. This is my first time doing anything like this, and I am a bit of a nervous wreck. A combination of having no idea what I am doing, how to make rehearsal during work hours, and all the extra costs they don't tell you about.

At least the majority of my Christmas shopping is done. And I got my Christmas photo cards ordered.

Thank you to everyone who took time to vote in my poll this past week! It takes some of the pressure off of me to have you help me choose what I should read next.


Rule of Luck by Catherine Cerveny came in with 4 votes and Annie Spence's Dear Fahrenheit 451 received 10 votes. Snowfall on Haven Point won 50% of the votes, getting 14 votes.


I was excited about reading all of these, but at the moment, I'm particularly happy to see RaeAnne Thayne's Snowfall on Haven Point won if only because I could use a happy holiday escape right now--something that will help take my mind off of work stress, dance performance stress, family stress, the news, and, well, you get the picture. Thank you so much to all who voted!

I hope you all have a great week. Happy reading!

  1. I'm currently reading Dear Fahrenheit 451; it's a fun one, and you can read a little at at time too so that's nice!

    Wow, all your Christmas shopping done? That's awesome!

    1. Lauren - I am glad you are enjoying Dear Fahrenheit 451. I am looking forward to that one too--even if it didn't win. :-)

      Well, not all of my Christmas shopping is done, but most of it. The problem though with getting it done this early is that I will keep finding more stuff and then want to buy it too, which I shouldn't do because I've already overspent! I still have my husband and daughter to shop for though, and those are the big ones. :-)

  5. I can't even think about Christmas yet. I just can't do it. I think that this is the book that I voted for but I am not positive. Either way, I hope you enjoy it.

    1. Carole - Focusing on Christmas is helping me keep my mind on something positive, so I am going there already. LOL But I understand how you feel.

      Thanks for visiting!

  10. Congrats on being almost done with your Christmas shopping. I'm always behind! I really have no excuse this year as I have some extra time on my hands but I think because it's been so warm here lately that I feel like Christmas is far away. Must get a move on that. Anyway, enjoy Snowfall. Looks like the perfect seasonal read!

    1. Iliana - Thank you! I used to be good about getting it done early because I had to ship all the gifts out. Now with everyone coming here every year (because of Mouse) I don't have to do that so much, but it's nice to have it done anyway. At least most of it. :-)
