Most of our month was spent deep within the plot of A Game of Thrones, which delivered on the hype. We also thoroughly enjoyed our read of Howl’s Moving Castle, although the movie was surprisingly painful. Does it count towards the Books to Movies Challenge if we only watched half the movie??? We’ll have to get clarification from the couple hosting the challenge.... Some other highlights for the month were Anya’s Ghost, Prince Caspian, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and Night Watch.
Here are the reviews that we posted in November that fit into our 2011 Challenges.
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer – Mark Twain
Rabbit, Run – John Updike
Something Rotten – Jasper Fforde
The Swiss Family Robinson – Johann David Wyss
The Prince of Mist – Carlos Ruiz Zafon
