Fourth Annual NaJuReMoNoMo

Filed under: Books — Tags: — Cat @ 3:30 pm

I nearly forgot to mention this and claim my prize, these very cool icons:


Every January Yellojkt at  FOMA holds this NaJuReMoNoMo (National Just Read More Novels Month) to challenge us to read new novels.  I haven’t done too well this year with just four under my belt and one of those was a very easy Debbie MacComber Christmas at Cedar Cove (Amazon) which took me just over an hour to read, so it  feels like cheating. But, hey, it was a new novel to me.

The other new novels I read were:

Rosamunde Pilcher Voices in the Summer (Amazon)

I love Pilcher’s books but this one seemed particularly dated

Joan London Gilgamesh (Amazon)

Weird, odd and I did not really get it

Tracy Chevalier Burning Bright (Amazon)

A typical Chevalier romp through William Blake’s London.

It is a very Chicklit kind of list.  I should get more serious with my reading but when I do, these days, I typically read nonfiction.



  1. Congratulations! I will make sure you get included in the wrap-up in a few days. And thanks for all your support over the years.

  2. Oh, who needs to be more serious when it comes to reading novels. And I would not quite call Burning Bright chicklit, though I would say that it was my least favorite of Chevalier’s books so far.

    • I would say the Burning Bright is my second favorite Chevalier. I did not like Falling Angels and the Lady and the Unicorn was so so but none have made as good an impression as A Pearl Earring.
