Books Read in November

Okay,  I know it is the 5th of December but my last few weeks have been a whirlwind.  Especially last week where I had a meeting every morning at school and something happening in the evenings or afternoons at school.  I am now taking a small break to list the books I've read this month.  I will not leave a link as that would take way too much time.  Some of these books I didn't blog about.  Why?  I am a judge for INSPY and CYBILS and have been reading, reading, reading and when you see how many books I read in November, you'll understand why I didn't review them all.  You'll also understand why I've been so exhausted.  So here goes the list.
