November was another very productive reading month, in which I managed to get through 14 books altogether. This number was comprised of 6 novels, 2 novellas, 2 graphic novels, a short story collection, 2 poetry collections and a tiny book that was simply one illustrated poem.
A highlight amongst them was probably that aforementioned illustrated poem – ‘B’ by Sarah Kay. It’s like a love letter between parent and child; a timeless and heart-warming little read that I highly recommend to anyone. I also loved A Portable Shelter by Kirsty Logan, which is a collection of often melancholic short stories inspired by Scottish folklore and fairy tales.
My total for 2015 is now sitting at 114; far beyond what I thought possible at the start of the year. I’m excited to see what final figure I can hit by the end of next month, when the struggle of putting together a list of favourites and setting some bookish resolutions for 2016 begins. Happy reading!
