Pick of the Month [November 2019]

My stack of physical reads in November

November was a great month for horror (though to be honest, pretty much every month this year has been a good month for horror for me) with Dust Devils by my favorite new-to-me horror author of 2019, Jonathan Janz (not pictured above as it was a library book which I had to return before I could take a picture of my November stack) and The Institute (not strictly a horror but near-enough) by Stephen King jointly taking out my pick of the month for November.

Of the 12 books I read or listened to, 0 were ebooks which continues the recent trend of devoting my reading time between the pages of physical books. There's been no real rhyme nor reason behind this. I just naturally gravitate towards physical books. This year in particular, I've been reading much more paperback horror and pulp than years gone by which is a likely contributing factor to the e-ink snub of recent months. 

Year to date I'm sitting at 146/150 books read for my 2019 Goodreads Challenge so baring any major events during December, it looks like another year of achieving my reading goals (number-wise that is, my Mount TBR Challenge is just terrible...). I'll write more on those challenges in a later blog post. 

Other reading highlights for November include the 80's horror, Lyrica by Thomas F. Monteloene, and the crime novella set in the Cormac Reilly universe (however Cormac doesn't feature all that much in this one), The Sisters by Dervla McTiernan which was offered recently as a free Audible Audio book to subscribers of the monthly service. 

Until next month, happy reading!
