November Wrap Up & December TBR

It's December. :O I've barely started Christmas shopping. But the plus to that is I don't have many people to buy for and a lot of them get gift cards. It's also freakin' freezing here. And we also had our first snow fall this past week that stayed on the ground. I don't like it. Maybe this will be the year I pack it all up and head south...
On to books. Pretty decent reading month. Read 18 books. Bringing my 2013 year total up to 176 books so far. Damn good if I do say so myself. *Gold star* Had two re-reads in there as well as binge reading the Legend trilogy. Which I loved.

So here's the physical books I read:

Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
The Fairest of Them All by Carolyn Turgeon
Facing the Music and Living to Talk About It by Nick Carter
Legend Trilogy by Marie Lu
Just One Year(Just One Day #2) by Gayle Forman
Catching Fire(Hunger Games #2) by Suzanne Collins
On the Island by Tracey Garvis-Graves
This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen
Counting by 7's by Holly Goldberg Sloan
That Time I Joined the Circus by J.J. Howard

And the e-books I read:

Too Fast by Alexia Haynes
No Place Like Oz(Dorothy Must Die #0.5) by Danielle Paige
The Temptation of Lila and Ethan(The Secret #3) by Jessica Sorensen
Untouched(Beachwood Bay #0.5) by Melody Grace
Unbroken(Beachwood Bay #1) by Melody Grace

I had a pretty good reading month as far as liking most of the books I read. My favourite...ummmm...can I say Catching Fire? It's still one of my favourite books. But besides that I thoroughly enjoyed the Legend trilogy. I thought Prodigy was the strongest of the three. So I'll say Prodigy was my favourite of the month.

As always, I don't really make a TBR. There are some books I'm hoping to get to, which I'll link below. But otherwise I definitely want to read some Christmas-y books and one or two review books I have. Plus whatever the #SarahDessenBookClub book is.
Here's the ones I'm hoping to get to:
Winter Town by Stephen Emond
The Archived(The Archived #1) by Victoria Scwab
The Knife of Never Letting Go(Chaos Walking #1) by Patrick Ness
So Silver Bright(Theatre Illuminata #3) by Lisa Mantchev
Fly Away(Firefly Lane #2) by Kristin Hannah

How about you guys? Good November? Anything special for December planned?

Happy reading!
