Today I am going to be talking/ writing my November tbr. This was so stressful to do. When I first started this post I had approximately 35 books on here🤦♀️, but I managed to get it down to 20🎉 I am so proud of myself😂.
So I am going to be taking part in the believe in the impossible readathon or believeathon for short. I love gavins channel and his love of middle grade books (and all things bookish). When I watched his announcement video for believeathon about reading all MG books I was like yessss pleaseee Lol. If you haven’t already go and check out gavins/ believeathon twitter for all the information which I will leave Here.
Believe in the impossible readathon:
So I know for a fact that I am not going to be able to complete all 10 challenges but being someone who likes to challenge themselves I know that I can read more than 4? So I decided that 6 was doable🤷♀️ don’t ask me how I came to this number😂.
let’s get into my tbr, (Click pictures to add to goodreads).
Read a book featuring magic–A pinch of magic by Michelle Harrison
I have been wanting to get to this book for a while and this readathon is the perfect time to stop making excuses and just READ THE BOOK!! I’m excited😆. As much as I have been wanting to read it I still don’t know that much about it, but I think I’m going to go into this one blind.
A book featuring a myth or legend-The land of roar by Jenny McLaughlin
This is another book that I have heard such great things about but haven’t read yet, although I do know that it has dragons which… is pretty much all I need to know about this book. And this cover is so pretty in my opinion.
Read a book with a strong friendship- Tunnel of bones- Victoria schwab
Scwab is a QUEEN!!! I love anything Schwab and have been looking for an excuse to put this on my tbr for November and now I have the perfect excuse. Tunnel of bones was a 4.5 star read and I’m hoping that I love this one as much as the first.
Atmospheric or creepy book– Potkin and Stubbs by Sophie Green
Ok so the cover of this book was what originally drew my attention to this book, but when I found out this was sort of a detective/ mystery story I had to find a way to put it on my tbr. I did have tunnel of bones as my atmospheric or creepy book but I had to switch that to a different prompt in order to use this one as my atmospheric or creepy read.
Read a book with an animal character–Wizard of once by Cressida Cowell
I am so excited to read this book to basically I am just excited for this readathon🎉. I’m pretty sure this book has animals in it? I mean there is an animal on the cover and I am sure I have heard someone mention wolves? Who knows either way I’m reading it😂.
Read the group book–Frostheart by Jamie Littler
Gavin has been talking about this book non stop since he received the arc and he has me super excited to read it. This is an adventure story filled with monsters, magic and a yeti… need I say more.
These are some other books that I want to get to this month.
where she belongs- Kaitlin Cooke
This is an arc that I was sent by the author for review. All I know about this one is that it is a romance which I love. But this book as bull riding which is something I haven’t read about before and I am really intrigued to read this book.
Death warden- C. J. Stilling
I was also sent a copy of this book for review by the author. This is a YA fantasy story about magic and assassins. I love both magic and assassins and I can’t wait to read this one because it sounds like something I’m going to enjoy.
The monsters of music- Rebecca F. Kenney
I have never read a phantom of the opera retelling before and what is better is that this is a gender bent retelling of phantom of the opera. This book was sent to me by the author and was released yesterday or the day before and I still haven’t read it or reviewed it yet🤦♀️
With the fire on high- Elizabeth Acevedo
First of all this cover is so pretty😍. So from what I can gather this is about a teenage high school student with a daughter who has a passion for cooking. I have heard that this book selves into some hard hitting topics such as race, teen pregnancy, relationships family and poverty with a touch of romance and I can’t wait to read it.
The last magician- Lisa maxwell
I have had this book on 4 tbrs now as well as at least 3 www Wednesday posts and I still haven’t read it yet. I love books that have to do with time travel and magic so I don’t know why I haven’t picked it up, but hopefully this is the month🤞.
Serpent and dove- Shelby Mahurin
Nearing the end of the month of October I started reading this book but I put it down at about 100 pages because I was in a slump and just wasn’t feeling it at the time. I really want to pick this back up during the month of November.
Vicious- V. E. Schwab
I have said it once and I will say it again, I love Schwab! This book/ duology is the only book/s (besides tunnel of bones and the unbound) that I have left of Schwab and I have been putting it off because I like having unread Schwab reads on my shelf as I always look forward to reading them. But I can’t put them off any longer I really want to read this duology.
every heart a doorway- seanan McGuire
I have read the prologue to this book 3 times now and always put it down to read something else which doesn’t make any sense because I am always intrigued by the prologue every time I read it. I really want to read this book this month😬.
Lady smoke- Laura Sebastian
Ash princess was a solid 4 star read for me earlier on this year. I really liked Theodosia as a character and the plot twists in this book really surprised me so I’m intrigued to see where this story goes from here. The third book doesn’t release until 2020 so I hope there isn’t a cliff hanger.
the girl in red- Christina Henry
Christina Henry is an author I have really come to love. Her twisted reimagining of the original stories are so well done and I love them. I want to read lost boy as well as this one but I’m going to read this one first because I already own a copy.
The enchantress returns- chris colfer
This is the second book to the land of stories by Chris colfer. Each book features a character from a famous fairytale that we all love (some have more than one). I could potentially use this for one of the prompts for believeathon if I get to it?
The ten thousand doors of January- Alix E. Harrow
When I read the blurb for this book it sounded like such a magical and whimsical story. I’ve heard this is such a unique story and there are doors to other worlds which sounds. I love any book that features magic and adventure and this is just that.
Malice- John gwynne
This is by far the longest book on this tbr, but if I can I really want to read this book this month. I have heard great things about this book and John gwynnes writing, so even though this book is a tome I’m still really excited to pick it up.
The secret history- Donna tartt
This book is also a tome! I am being really ambitious with this tbr. I have heard Jamie from Leo reads rave about this book so I had to pick up a copy because I really want to know what my thoughts are on it.
I feel like all I have said for this tbr is ‘I really want to read…’😂 but there is nothing new there.
What’s your tbr like this month? Is is as chaotic as mine? Or more maybe? Have you read any of these books? Let me know in the comments below
Thank you so much for reading!
