What I Read November 2015

Apparently, I was a little burned out November 2015. I definitely go through reading peaks and valleys, but only one book in an entire month is pretty slow for me. I spent most of December working my way through The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt, which I finished early in December 2015.

Grave Peril by Jim Butcher
Urban Fantasy
With previously peaceful ghosts now wreaking havoc upon Chicago, professional wizard Harry Dresden is on the case to uncover the supernatural power driving the poltergeists mad.

I like so much about this series except for the books themselves. I am willing to give Harry Dresden one more shot (have I said that before?) to see how this evolves because so many of my friends and Library patrons enjoy these. I keep hearing the series gets better a few books in, but only having one interesting, robust female character -- who barely made an appearance in this story -- while all the other male characters get a less-sexualized (and frequently more thorough) treatment is getting frustrating.
