What I’ve Read – November 2022

It’s the start of December, only one month left for the year!

It’s been a great month for reading.

The first book I finished was Lola in the Middle by Cecily Anne Patterson. This was part of the Forevability awards and one that I’d been looking forward to. It didn’t disappoint.

At the library, I picked up Pearlie and Great Aunt Garnet by Wendy Harmer. I had heard of these books and hadn’t read them before. This was a fun story.

Picture books were featured this month. Partly because of a workshop in the Young Writers’ Group that gave me the opportunity to read a few that I may not have read otherwise. These included Our Library by Donna Rawlins, Stellarphant by James Foley, The Book Dragon by Kell Andrews, Free Kid to a Good Home by Hiroshi Ito, Pigasus by Zanni Louise, and Come Over to My House by Eliza Hull.

For audiobooks, I listened to In A Country Garden by Maeve Haran and Property of the Rebel Librarian by Allison Varnes.

To finish the month, I read Selling Your Books Locally: an author’s guide to craft fairs and other events by Angela Castillo and Jamie Foley. A great book to pick up some tips on selling books at markets and events.

I hope you enjoyed some great books during November.
