Let’s Talk About That Story: November & December 2017

Let's Talk About That Story: November & December 2017 | About That Story

Your eyes do not deceive you. I’m combining this months Let’s Talk so you’re getting book awesomeness for both November and December. I’m doing this out of necessity since life was so hectic thanks to getting ready for Thanksgiving, buy a new refrigerator, and pre-planning for Christmas. I was reading like a mad woman, but my computer time was more limited. That means, now that I have a minute to finally sit down and write this post, you’re getting a very full Let’s Talk About That Story this month so check it out...


With all the new releases out there for November and December, I don’t even know where to begin and I know I’m missing a ton. Some of these I’ve read and the rest I am planning to read. You, dear reader, definitely have a lot to choose from.

My audio book love continues. I might have gotten myself a year long Audible subscription to feed my addiction. ;-)

I’m waiting for Sweet Dreams by Kristen Ashley to be available from the library. It’s a very popular audio because I requested this book months ago and I’m still waiting. I’m up next and am excited to finally listen to it. It’s one of my all time favorite books. You can find my book review HERE.


I listened to Sidebarred by Emma Chase, Four Letter Word by J. Daniels, and Truth or Beard by Penny Reid. I remember loving Truth or Beard when I read it and laughing while reading but listening to the audio had me seriously cracking up! Check out my reviews for Sidebarred, Four Letter Word, and Truth or Beard.

I am hoping to listen to Hit the Spot by J. Daniels soon. I’m gearing up for the release of the third book in the Dirty Deeds series, Bad for You. Check out my review for Hit the Spot.


My randomness isn’t so random this time around. Just a quick note to say that in 2018, I’ll be changing things up a bit so I’m officially retiring this version of Let’s Talk About That Story. Don’t worry, I’ll still be sharing the book love, new releases, what’s on my radar, and audio book love, just in different ways. Stay tuned!

Thank you all so much for your support. I appreciate every comment on my blog, and likes on all the social medias. I love the book community so much and connecting with everyone. Y’all are the best!

Happy Holidays!



Hit me up with some of your favorite books for November and December! I don’t want to miss a thing.
