Hello Hello! How are you all?
Happy Saturday and Happy Halloween! My week has gone by so quickly and I’m so surprised it’s already November, it seems like the months just keep getting faster! This TBR is going to *try* to be shorter than usual because I’m going to be starting to read books for my thesis and want to make sure I have time for everything before things get crazy! Hopefully, now that France is back in lockdown, I’ll have a little bit more time on my hands to do everything I want!
I couldn’t even begin to tell you what I’ve read this month because I have so many books on the go and I am just clueless about what’s been read! November is also the month of NaNoWriMo and I might not be able to write every day, but I’m going to give it my best shot! Now, time for the November TBR!
On to the November TBR!
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
I’m in a little impromptu book club with some blogger friend’s and for November, we have chosen this book to read and I’m actually fairly excited about this one. I feel like we are going to be reading some books that are more on the odd-side, but I’m okay with that. I read a few excerpts of this book in my first year of university and I’m pretty sure the teacher spoiled us, but I can’t remember, so I’m looking forward to diving into this one.
One of Us is Lying (#1) by Karen M. McManus
I had been thinking about asking Stephen from Stephen Writes if he wanted to do a buddy read with me after I saw him and Noly do one, and then Dave from @The_WriteReads promoted Stephen’s posts about buddy reads, so I jumped on the chance! I think we are both very excited for this book, we are going to be reading another book by the author later in the month for a blog tour organised by Dave, and I am very much ready and looking forward to finally reading this very hyped book!
The Dire King (#4) by William Ritter
Candyce and I are still reading Ghostly Echoes (#3) but we are going to finish it today, and I’m sure we are going to immediately get the next one to read! I have been really loving this series but I feel like this is a proper mystery plot whereas the two previous ones were still really good, but maybe a bit disconnected, this one seems to be culminating into a massive plot twist and I can’t wait!!
Fiona and I are taking a little break in our Shadowhunter mission as we just weren’t able to get to Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare in October. We have been so busy and we didn’t want to stuff even more things into an already hectic month for the both of us, but we should be starting back up again in December!
ARCs, Blog Tours and Netgalley Books
To Sleep in a Sea of Stars by Christopher Paolini
I am still reading this book and I failed to get a review for it out a few weeks ago, but I am going to keep pushing through because I have enjoyed what I’ve read so far, since I have more time to read since I’m at home and not driving back and forth from university, I’m sure I’ll find some time to sit down and read it.
Finding Love at the Christmas Marker by Jo Thomas
This is a book that I was approved from on Netgalley because I had read another book by this author a few months ago and really loved it. I was really happy the publisher reached out about this one because although I’m not a Christmas book kind of person, I loved Jo Thomas’s writing style and I think that this book is going to be magical! It’ll put me in the Christmas spirit at least!
The Cousins by Karen M. McManus
Ahaaaaaaaaa! This is THE book of the month, well, I don’t know yet, but I’m very excited for it and I’m so very happy to be on the #UltimateBlogTour organised by Dave from @The_WriteReads along with so many other amazing bloggers (it’s going to be massive)! Karen M. McManus is such a well-known author and her books are really popular, I can’t wait!
Hype-A-Thon Readathon and Middle Grade Marvels
A Court of Thorns and Roses (#1) by Sarah J. Maas
Noly and I have decided to go easy on ourselves and instead of dragging out a brand-new book and failing to read it (AGAIN), we’ve decided that in November, we are going to reread ACOTAR, I’m only putting book 1 in my post because I don’t want to “pousser mémé dans les orties” as we say in French (which basically means to make my life difficult). We love this series, it’s one of our favourites and I’m so glad we picked this for #NostalgicNovember. You can read all about the latest Hype-A-Thon Readathon post here!
Shadows of Winterspell by Amy Wilson
And for the Middle Grade Marvels book club, in November we are reading what I hope is going to be a lovely wintery story full of magic and snuggly winter vibes! I’m really glad this one was picked as I’ve heard a lot of good things about this author and the members of our little book club seem chuffed about it too! Head over to my announcement to read all about it!
I don’t think I have any other books planned for November, I might be wrong though. I have the books I’m reading and judging for BBNYA, but I’m going to be reading those over November and December, and I don’t want to give anything away yet!
I’m also going to start reading some books for my thesis so I’m thinking maybe To Kill A Mockingbird (#1) by Harper Lee, Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott and The Girl in Red by Christina Henry, but I might just jump in and out of the massive pile I have currently sitting on my table!
That’s all for now, a much more chill month, I’m sure I’m going to be rushed off my feet especially with what lockdown means for me at university, but I’m looking forward to a little more reading time!
I hope you enjoyed this post, tell me what you’ll be reading in November! See you soon, stay safe,
