Favorite Read This Month:

It's impossible to pick a favorite read for November. I LOVED all of the Patrick Bowers books and The Sanctuary was also really good.

My thoughts on November:

Even though I didn't reach my goal, I'm happy with what I read. Rereading the Patrick Bowers books took longer that I had expected and it was just a busy month.

Looking ahead:

My goal for December:

To finish at least 10 books.

I randomized a couple times before I got my random read for December, because the first book I didn't own (why did I have it on my TBR?!?) and the others I don't feel like reading right now. So, I decided to get my December Random Read from my NetGalley shelf and it picked I Am The Mission (mainstream YA). I read the first book earlier this year and I didn't love it, but I'm hoping book two will be better.

About the book:

He was the perfect assassin.

Boy Nobody: No name. No past. No remorse. At least until he began to ask questions and challenge his orders -- until he fell in love with his target. Now The Program is worried that its valuable soldier has become a liability.

Boy Nobody, haunted by the outcome of his last assignment, is given a new mission. A test of sorts. A chance to show his loyalty.

His objective: Take out Eugene Moore, the owner of a military training and indoctrination camp for teenagers. One target. Limited time frame. Public place. It sounds simple, but a previous operative couldn't do it. He lost the mission and is presumed dead. Boy Nobody is confident he can finish the job. Quickly.

But when things go awry, Boy Nobody finds himself lost in a mission where nothing is as it seems: not The Program, his allegiances, or the truth.

The riveting second book in The Unknown Assassin series by Allen Zadoff delivers heart-pounding action and thought-provoking characters, as well as a new, exotic setting; a new mission; and new secrets to be revealed.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. ~ Philippians 4:8
