Goodbye RIP, Hello November

The time has come far too soon to bid adieu to RIP season. I managed to read thirteen books this year, which seems appropriate. I DNFed my most anticipated read (The Watchmaker of Filigree Street) but enjoyed many other perilous plots. A big thank you to Andi and Heather for taking up the reins on the event this year!

Looking forward, there are lots of great events happening this fall/winter. 

This week, I'll be celebrating Witch Week with Lori! There's a group read of The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter that any of you can still get in on as it's quite short.

Kim, Leslie, Katie, and Rebecca are hosting Nonfiction November. I have some reviews that I still need to post that will fit nicely and also some books to get to so I'm using this event as motivation. I think I'll start with Amy Poehler's Yes Please.

A whole host of bloggers are reading Jane Austen's Emma in December and I'm hoping to join in on that as it's my final unread Austen.

And last but certainly not least is the #potterbinge Harry Potter Readalong hosted at The Estella Society! I'm hoping to read Order of the Phoenix with Z but I'll probably sneak in as many books as I can. I'm in the mood to revisit Deathly Hallows as well.

What are your reading plans for November and beyond?

Reading all the books,


  1. Yay Witch Week! And thanks for pointing out the Emma re-read, I'd like to join in on that.

  2. Thirteen books! That is the perfect number and simply amazing! I am so glad you enjoyed RIPX.

    I can't wait to get started on my Potter Binge!

    1. It turned out very nicely. I love RIP so, so much! And my Potter Binge will start soon too. Once you start thinking about rereading Potter, you have to do it!

  3. So many wonderful blogging events! I'm looking forward to participating and reading everyone's posts for the ones I can't participate in. I always love it when people reread Harry Potter, especially! I am ALWAYS HAPPY to tell Sirius Black haters why they are wrong. :p

  4. You are the queen when it comes to RIP!! And, you always have good recommendations that result from it!

    I'm so tempted to join in on the HP Binge. We will see though. There is always so much to read!!

    1. I haven't started HP yet but I put Sorcerer's Stone as my December read for the chapter book project so that I had a reason to get to it. I think I might read it and Deathly Hallows. :)
