Welcome aboard, train wreck.
I find it hard to believe November is over. I’m still pulling spiderwebs from my office cubicle. This lack of time awareness may account for the amount of books I read in November.
If this is your first time here, welcome aboard, train wreck. Glad to have you here. If this isn’t your first time here, I’m still glad to have you. Please like, comment,
share, and subscribe. My goal is to have five hundred subscribers by the end of the year. I think we can make that happen.

I had a very slow book month. End of year things are going on at work. The big boss came in for a few days. At home, there’s been Thanksgiving, a wedding, and planning graduation. I’ve been booked. But I did get a few books in.
A Spell for Trouble: An Enchanted Bay Mystery
by Esme Addison
I liked this one. Well written. I cared about the characters. I loved the take on where witches get their powers. Totally original. Super creative. A little love triangley at parts but it wasn’t overpowering. Overall, great book. I would recommend it to anyone who likes cozy mysteries and witchy fiction.
Twelve Slays of Christmas: A Christmas Tree Farm Mystery
So, I read this one out of order. I liked the second one well enough but now it makes sense. I loved this one. So much so, that I’ll go back and read the second again and possibly the third. I’m not a big cold weather fan but this gave me all the cozy vibes. You know, minus the murder. I would recommend it to anyone who loves Christmas or winter settings and anyone in the jewelry crafting business.
A Deadly Eclair (A French Bistro Mystery)
Daryl Wood Gerber is one of my favorite authors when it comes to cozy mysteries. Ever since reading this, I have been nudging my culinary art student child into making French bistro cuisine. This one had me guessing all the way to the big reveal. Not me hoping the next murder is the annoying, pretentious ex wife. Gods, I couldn’t stand her. I would recommend this to anyone who likes culinary cozies.
Mrs. Morris and the Witch (A Salem B&B Mystery)
by Traci Wilton
As a witch, this was delightful to read. I absolutely love that the main character was actively and honestly interested in what witches do. This wasn’t demeaning or condescending. This was just about as close as you can get. Refreshing. And the murder? Had me guessing through the whole thing. I’m still trying to work out how a love triangle with a human and a ghost might work but hey, whatever floats your goat. I would recommend this to anyone in the witchy fiction genre.
Here & Hereafter: How Wisdom from the Departed Can Transform Your Life Now
by Tyler Henry
I will be doing a longer review on this one in a few days. I did receive this as an advanced reader copy. I had different expectations for this. It was good. Just not what I thought it was going to be. The beginning seemed to be a lot of the same things we’ve all heard from mediums before. Ego. Forgiveness. I like that he touched on death, grief, and loss. Overall, I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to gain some perspective on this thing we call life.
And there you have them. The books I read in November. Have you read any of them? What did you think? Again, if you like what I post, please like, comment, share, and subscribe.

I’ve been hinting to my husband that I could use a laptop. Something to use while I’m on lunch and have a moment of inspiration. Then I saw this. I’m telling you, it’s a sign.
To help you get through your TBR, I’m giving you a printable bookmark. Print it on cardstock and laminate it (contact paper works great). Hope you enjoy.
