November's Books & Crime Fiction Pick of the Month

These are the books I finished reading in November (linked to my posts on the books):

  1. Saints of the Shadow Bible by Ian Rankin
  2. Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell and also this post
  3. Instructions for a Heatwave by Maggie O’Farrell
  4. Julius by Daphne Du Maurier (from my To-Be-Read books)
  5. The Midwich Cuckoos by John Wyndham (Kindle)
  6. N or M? by Agatha Christie (from my To-Be-Read books)
  7. St Mawr by D H Lawrence (from my To-Be-Read books)

The books without posts are:

Instructions for a Heatwave is a book I bought this year; it’s shortlisted for the 2013 Costa Novel Award.  The Midwich Cuckoos is an e-book I borrowed from the Kindle Users Lending Library. Three of the books are books I’ve owned for several years (the To-Be-Read books).

It was a good month for reading. Just two of the books are crime fiction – Saints of the Shadow Bible and N or M?  Both books are by writers at the top of their form, but Ian Rankin’s Saints of the Shadow Bible is my Crime Fiction Pick of the Month.
