Wow, What a November! Update

November was a very busy month with the Ho-Ho-Ho Readathon from November 18th to the 30th and Non-Fiction November and Novellas in November happening all month and my monthly Spell the Month in Books challenge I set for myself. I set goals for myself of reading 4 non-fiction books, 4 novellas and 5 books for Ho-Ho-HoRAT and 5/8 for Spell the Month. I did double dip and I am not finished all my reviews, but I did well. I will be doing a separate post for Ho-Ho-Ho RAT, but I did read 7/5. I will update this post as I get my reviews written.

Two RomComs to Make You Smile: All the Feels by Olivia Dade, Duke Actually by Jenny Holiday #BookReview #Audiobook #HoHoHoRAT @HarperAudio

I really enjoyed both of these RomComs. They are both the second books in a duology or series and I did not read or listen to the the first in either. I had not problem enjoying these stories, but wish I had read the first ones. I will go back and read #1, but there are some spoilers for me now. Both of these audiobooks were generously provided by the publisher upon request. The rating and opinions shared are my own.
