What to Read in November

what to read in november
My November reading suggestions are all about Thanksgiving. (Naturally)


Fiction: A Catered Thanksgiving (A Mystery With Recipes)by Isis Crawford. Book 7 in the series but you probably don’t need to have read all of them.

And if you like your mysteries to make you hungry, there’s also the Faith Fairchild series (starting withThe Body in the Belfry). I don’t remember a specific thanksgiving in these books, but Faith is always cooking, plus she lives in New England, which just seems appropriate.


Nonfiction:Putting God Back in the Holidays: Celebrate Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, Birthdays, and 12 Other Special Occasions with Purposeby Bill and Penny Thrasher. I picked this one up on a whim a few years ago but I’m really glad I did. This is much more than just celebrating holidays, this is about why God is worthy of worship and ought to be at the center of whatever we do.


Children’sCranberry Thanksgivingby Wende and Harry Devlin. One of my favorite Thanksgiving traditions is reading this picture book. I’ve written about some of our favorite Thanksgiving books before:


Poetry:The Courtship of Miles Standishby Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. A narrative poem about some of my ancestors. (Yes, I like to just slip that little bit of info into conversations every once in a while.)

And, just in case you need a little extra help this month, here’s my all time favorite cookbook (mine, given to me by my dad long, long ago before I was married, is actually falling apart):

What books would you suggest for November?
