November Wrap Up/ posted in: Reading
I had big things to say about my plans for November. I was totally wrong.
First off, I said that although I was going to participate in Nonfiction November’s Monday discussions, I wasn’t going to focus on reading nonfiction this month.
Wow, good to know I wasn’t going to focus on nonfiction.
Here’s the fiction I read this month.
That’s 12 books all together which is a little low for me.
- 3 audiobooks
- Set in France, Poland/Austria/Germany/Czechoslovakia, all through Central and South America, Tasmania, and the U.S.
The authors were:
- 8 men and 6 women (2 books were written by 2 authors)
- There were 2 black authors and 1 Indian author
I notice that my nonfiction reading does tend to drift towards white male authors. I’d love to find more nonfiction written by women and POC authors. Suggestions?
I also said that I was going to be doing NaNoWriMo. I started. This is a book that I had tried writing before and got bogged down when they have a take a trip on a ship. I didn’t have enough knowledge to be able to write that. I did some research ahead of time this attempt and got bogged down at the same point. I still want to write this book though so I have some reference material coming through interlibrary loan to look at the exact type of ship I’m writing about.
So, moving on. December plans. I am going to be following along with a Goodreads readalong of A Close and Common Orbit, the sequel to The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet. That’s about it.
