Bookmark Lit Bulletin | November 2022

Posted December 8, 2022 / Bookmark Lit Bulletin, Features, Wrap-Ups / 1 Comment

BL headerThe Bookmark Lit Bulletin wraps up the last month in reading and what was on the blog, as well as what’s coming up next. You can check out my book haul, books read, posts shared, challenge updates, etc. You can read past bulletins here. If you’re looking for more personal updates, you can check out my Lauren Lately feature; it highlights my life events and non-bookish fun from the previous 30 days.

I had a really weird November. I started to get kind of ruthless about DNFing books rather than sticking it out if I wasn’t enjoying myself. I quit two books this past month! I have limited reading time and if I’m not ever in the mood to pick the book up and finish it, why bother avoiding reading? I’d rather WANT to read!

    I almost picked up A Season for Second Chances at Target today but passed it up because I second guessed it — I’ll have to check it out at the library soon.

    I’m excited to see your thoughts on The Headmaster’s List and Five Survive. They book look like phenomenal reads.
