Okay, for various reasons I’m having to set this post up before the end of November, so when I refer to books read in November, I mean up till today, which is the 28th.
I read fifteen books in November, taking my total for the year so far to one hundred and forty six titles, and none of the newly read made my Top Twenty list. Terror Tales of London edited by Paul Finch was the title that came closest to making the cut, but couldn’t quite knock Tom Fletcher off the bottom spot.
The list remains the same as for last month:-
Look Where You Are Going Not Where You Have Been – Steven J. Dines
The Blackhouse – Carole Johnstone
The Dollmaker – Nina Allan
Mirrorland – Carole Johnstone
Lies of Tenderness – Stephen Volk
All That’s Lost – Ray Cluley
And Then I Woke Up – Malcolm Devlin
The Killing Lessons – Saul Black
This Isn’t Anywhere You Know – Gary McMahon
Sorrowmouth – Simon Avery
The Shadow Man – Helen Fields
Scar Tissue – James Cooper
The Whisper Man – Alex North
Ormeshadow – Priya Sharma
Electric Breakfast – Paul Meloy
The Shadow Friend – Alex North
True Story – Kate Reed Petty
Triflers Need Not Apply – Camilla Bruce
You Can Run – Steve Mosby
Witch Bottle – Tom Fletcher
N.B. These rankings are not intended as noting literary merit – only an expression of how much pleasure each of these books gave me. And, of course, the whole process is highly subjective – at any other time my ratings might be entirely different.
