Hey guys, how you doin’?
Today I brought to you my November TBR. I’m usually awful at following TBRs, but we’re still doing this anyways because I like pretending I won’t fail even though I obviously will. I’ll try to keep this fairly contained, since it’s finals’ month and I need to study. You know, I was feeling pretty good about my last TBR, but it turns out I only read 2 books from it (shocking exactly no one). I’ll put the repeats from previous months at the top so I can face the shame all at once.
Here are the books I want
to try to read in November:
A Very Large Expanse of Sea by Tahereh Mafi
I mean, third time’s a charm, right? I know I should have read my ARC before the release, but well, I was getting to stressed out with all the deadlines I had so I took I step back and let this one on hold for a while. Being a mood reader didin’t help, but I’m determined to actually finish this in November. It’s a matter of principle at this point.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter #2) by J.K. Rowling
Well this HP series reread was a major flop. I’ve only reread book 1! My excuse for not moving foward is because I want to take extremely detailed notes, like I did with the first one, so I kept telling myself that I didn’t have the time for it now. But honestly, I have to at least reread Chamber of Secrets before Fantastic Beasts premiere, this is my most favorite book of all time, damn it. It’s a total priority.
The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw
I put this on my October TBR because I was in the mood for some witchy reads (even though I literally read no witch books last month). Turns out that mood hasn’t gone away yet, so I must take advantage of it and actually pick up this book. It’s kind of short so it shouldn’t take me that long to read it. Hopefully.
The Dead Zone by Stephen King
This is the last repeat. I’m already making my way through this one via audiobook, so I know I’ll actually finish it. Like I’ve mentioned before, this is my first Stephen King book, and who knows if there’ll be more. I don’t do horror books, and most of his fall into that category, but this one is okay so far. I’ve read like 30% of it and I hope to finish it asap, since I’ve been trying to read one book at a time so I don’t end up halfway through a bunch of them.
Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices #1) by Cassandra Clare
Finally I’ll get to the praised Infernal Devices series. I’ve been reading The Shadowhunters Chronicles in publication order, and to be honest I’m not a fan of The Mortal Instruments so far. Even though I like the world, the books are just okay and I knew the big spoilers so my experience was kind of underwhelming (but I stan Malec). However, I’m fairly optimystic about TID, I’ve heard much better things concerning the triology. We’ll see how it goes (but it has to go well cause I own all the books aready haha).
Slayer (Slayer #1) by Kiersten White
I wasn’t sure if I should put this on my November or December TBR, but I think it’s better to read it sooner. This is actually one of my most anticipated books, so of course, even though I’ve had this ARC for a while, I’ve been putting it off because I’m scared of possible unfulfillment of my expectations. But on the other hand, it is Buffy The Vampire Slayer + Kiersten White, so there’s little chance it’ll go wrong for me.
An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green
Here’s the thing, I’ve only read one John Green book (and it was like a 3.5 for me), and I don’t really follow the Green brothers’ channel so I don’t have a connection with them. However, I’m a curious person and the premise of Hank’s book caught my interest – especially now that I’m getting more envolved with the online bookish community. I really hope I have a better experience with his work, than what I had with his famous sibling’s. I’m cautiously optimystic.
Sadie by Courtney Summers
I’ve heard nothing but praise for this book. Everyone hyped it up so much that I’m convinced I’m going to like it too. I’m sure it’s a heavy story, so I have to be in a certain mindset to read it, but I really want to pick this up asap. People strongly recommend the audiobook, so I’ll probably listen to it after I’m done with The Dead Zone.
So guys, these are my priority reads, what books do you want to read this month? Let me know in the comments. 😀
