The Best and Worst of November

It’s already December, so let’s take a look back and reflect on November, shall we?  For starters, I just want to say that overall traffic is down this month, likely due to the travelling madness Thanksgiving causes in Americans.  (How dare you people want to spend time with your family!)  However, the good news is that in October I had 5, 421 views while in November it was only slightly down at 5, 346.  Not that bad, considering.  So what articles were the most popular in November?  Let’s take a look:

1.  The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton

2.  The Hunger Games and Ancient Rome

3.  The Giver by Lois Lowry

4.  Matilda by Roald Dahl

5.  Ark Angel by Anthony Horowitz

If you’re thinking this sounds familiar, you’re absolutely right.  A quick look back at October shows that all 5 articles that were at the top then are still at the top now.  The only difference is the order.  So what about the bottom articles?

1.  The Historian by Elisabeth Kostova

2.  Skinned by Robin Wasserman

3.  The Horus Road by Pauline Gedge

4.  The Necromancer by Michael Scott

5.  Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

Once again you’ll notice that the bottom 5 are rarely consistent.  Not one of these articles I listed above has made an appearance on the worst 5 before.  The only really surprising things are that The Necromancer and Uglies are part of the 5 ‘worst.’  I guess Michael Scott isn’t as popular now that his series ended and Uglies is an older YA book.  Maybe the current generation will discover it like I did.

That’s how my November went.  How was yours?

    I never even check my stats any more, I used to be obsessed with them months ago but I just roll on by now haha. I assume it was a bad one considering I spent a majority of November writing for NaNo and neglected my blog.
