November Round Up!

Monthly Feature- rounds up all the books I've read, progress on challenges and reviews my blogging!
It is kind of an expansion (?) of my favourite memes hosted by the lovely Shelia over at Book Journey!
Well I spent the majority of November without my laptop! How does one blog effectively without a home computer? The answer is it isn't possible! I spent a lot of time making use of the library but I'm really disappointed that Dell took so long to fix it!

November in numbers!

What I read in November!

I've got a full time Christmas temp job and my best friend is back from Australia so I've been distracted! 
What I Reviewed!
Swell by Julie Rieman Duck. Blog Tour!
Loving Summer by Kailin Gow. Blog Tour

The Secret of Ella and Micha by Jessica Sorensen. Blog Tour!
Shallow by Georgia Cates. Blog Tour!
Crash by Nicole Williams.

Not too bad on the reviewing front not as great as I'd hoped though!
What I Posted!
Lettie Loves!- A post judging some recent Contemporary covers!
Top Ten Tuesday!- Top Ten Contemporary reads of 2012!
Fab Five Friday!- Highlighting some older contemporary reads!
Blog Tours
6 Seconds of Life - Character analysis post!
Cover Reveal
Did I achieve my goals?
To successfully host my feature month!-
Thanks to my Laptop fail I didn't really achieve this one! I did keep my blog tour schedule on the whole but my feature posts suffered as they weren't prewritten.
To make progress on my challenges!-
I count Roar and Liv but it was technically a novella... Again poor progress!
To update my blog pages!-
Success! I updated my Ratings page so it's more accessible and clear! As well as updating my Challenge and Books page.
What I hope to achieve in December!
  •  Challenges- One last push for 2012 challenges! I also want to sign up for a couple more for 2013 as I'll have a full year to complete them!
  • Reviews- I want to post at least 6 reviews. At least 4 independent of blog tours. I want reviews of books I personally picked up as well as blog tours promoting books I chose to review.
  • Posts- I want to do a couple of discussion and 'Lettie loves' posts just to mix up my blog content!
How was your November?
Excited for December and Christmas?
Much Love!
