My reading month in October turned out completely different than planned. A lot of my TBR was thrown out the window. I’ve noticed the pressure of reading for deadlines was starting to get to me and I need to let that go a bit. So my November TBR still has a few ARCs, but I’ll be reading a bit more freely as well. I’m letting myself be more of a mood reader, so let’s see what my November plan will be.
If you’ve followed us you know I’m a mod in the TBR and Beyond Facebook group. Every month we have group reads and another mod and I host a contemporary readalong (swoonalong).
Little Monsters – Kara Thomas
Little Monsters will be a reread for me, but I loved it the first time. I remember a lot of the details of the story, but not everything! I can’t wait to discuss it with others.
Spoiler Alert – Olivia Dade
I was going to read Spoiler Alert this month, but not everything worked out as planned. It just happened to win our poll for November, so I’m glad I’ll still get to read it in the near future. I have high expectations for this one!
Even though I do want to do some moodreading, I’ve still decided to participate in a few tours. All of these are books I’m really looking forward to, so I’m hoping that helps keep me on track.
Master of One – Jaida Jones & Dani Bennett
Master of One is a book I’ve heard a lot of readers talk about and so many are excited for this book. This is a fantasy that seems to have all of the elements I’m looking for in a book. I can’t wait to dive in. It’s over 500 pages, so I’ll definitely get to be in this world for a little while.
Vampires of Moscow – Caedis Knight
This is a book I’ve seen on Twitter for awhile leading up to the release. When the author duo announced they were looking for bloggers for their tour, I just couldn’t resist. A paranormal romance with some suspense elements. So far readers have been really positive and I have a feeling I will too!
Born at Dawn -Christina Davis
Born at Dawn starts off with a heist gone wrong. I love books like that. This book sounds really good and one I’ll fly through.
The Tigers in the Tower – Julia Golding
Yay another middle grade! I’ve been loving middle grade lately and I’m excited for this tour. An adventure with majestic tigers sounds like an interesting read. It’s not that long, so I’ll fly through this one.
The Boy, the Wolf and the Stars -Shivaun Plozza
Another amazing middle grade cover. They really have the best covers. A boy and his pet fox go on an adventure to find all of the stars before magic disappears. I love the concept of this story. It sounds pretty unique.
I have a few Netgalley books and one book from an author I really enjoy! So hopefully I can fit at least a few of these in. There are a few holiday related books and I’m really excited!
The Mistletoe Trap – Cindi Madsen
Friends to lovers is one of my favorite tropes. Set this around Christmas time and you have a happy reader. Cindi Madsen is an author I’ve read before and really loved. I have a feeling this book is going to leave me all warm and happy. Just what I need from a book like this.
The Twelve Dates of Christmas – Jenny Bayliss
Another holiday read for me in November. Twelve dates and 23 days before Christmas. Will our main character find the love of her life? I have a feeling this is going to be a feelgood read!
Love & Olives – Jenna Evans Welch
I loved the previous two books in this trilogy. We’ve been to Italy and Ireland. Now it’s time to go to Greece. A Mamma-Mia inspired tale? Yes please!
These Violent Delights -Chloe Gong
A Romeo & Juliet retelling set in 1920s Shanghai. I have to say that really caught my attention. I’m a fan of retellings, but have never read a Romeo & Juliet one. A lot of early readers have been really impressed by this book. I hope I am as well!
Other than these, I’m going to leave it to my mood. Hopefully I’ll pick up a lot of fun books and ones I’ve wanted to read for awhile. What are you reading in November? Are there any books I should read? Let me know in the comments!
