Okay, so last month I planned out a TBR and I actually followed some of it. At least most of the planned TBR (the only change was that I swapped my Agatha Christie read). The “potential” books were obviously wild cards and just ones I was eyeing at the time, but spooky month got to me and I read more mysteries than I thought I would. I also read five volumes of Haikyu!! in one day, so there’s that, and it bumped up my reading stats for October.
Since it worked out good, I thought I’d try to plan out a TBR for November as well. There are definitely some book I’m prioritizing and I feel that having an accountability to them on my blog will help me actually read them. Unless, you know, I’m not in the mood because we’re all mood readers here.
You’ll Be the Death of Me – Karen McManus
I have loved all of McManus’s books so far, so I’m looking forward to this book. It doesn’t release until the end of the month, but I have an e-galley waiting for me that I received from NetGalley, so I’ll hopefully be getting this one read and reviewed by the middle of the month.
Quests for Glory – Soman Chainani
This was on my Wild Card list for last month, but I got too into reading mysteries to go to fantasy. However, I don’t want to put too much time in between reading this series, so I’d like to get back to it. Plus, the color is very autumn-ish, which is perfect for November.
The Writing Desk – Rachel Hauck
This has been on my TBR shelf at home for years. Yeah, years. I think it’s probably about time that I actually read the book. Plus, it’s a dual timeline and lately I’ve been enjoying those. It’s also a club pick for a group I’m in on Goodreads, so… that helps.
The People We Choose – Katelyn Detweiler
This one just sounds really interesting. Though it’s one of those ones I’m not sure if I’ll love or not, so I grabbed it from the library when we got it in. I think it’ll be a good different read from all the mysteries I’ve read in the past month.
WILD CARD TBR
Aftermath – Clara Kensie
Right before I bought this book a while ago, I read a little bit of the preview on Barnes & Noble’s website and it was really good. Then, of course, by the time I actually got the book I was in a completely different reading mood, so… you know how that is. But since I’ve been riding the mystery/thriller train for the past month, I might still be in the mood to read this one.
Persuasion – Jane Austen
I bought this one last month on a whim because it sounded interesting, and I want to read more of Jane Austen’s books after reading Pride & Prejudice for the first time this year.
Between the Lines – Jodi Picoult & Samantha Van Leer
This would be a reread for the month, if I get around to it. It’s been quite a few years since I’ve read it and I’m starting to go into a nostalgic sort of mood, where I want to reread books that I remember enjoying. So depending on how I do with the rest of this TBR, I’ll see if I end up reading this as well.
Haikyu!! vol. 11 – Haruichi Furudate
I’m definitely planning on reading more of this manga since I love it so much, and I can read a volume in one sitting, but I’m not sure if I’ll get around to them this month. That’s mainly due to these other books I’d like to read, and the two I’m currently reading now, but we’ll see what happens. Who knows? I might go through volumes 11-15 in one day.
As I always say, I’m a big mood reader so we’ll see if I stick to this list. I purposely didn’t put a lot on here so that I’d be more likely to read these. The only one I know for sure that I’ll read is You’ll Be the Death of Me since it’s a NetGalley ebook and I’d like to get it read and reviewed before the release date. And with the holidays coming up, it’s possible that I’ll want to read a Christmas book at some point.
