Bookish Item| Netgalley Backlist Part 10

So I posted my Netgalley Backlist Part 9 only two weeks ago, but with it being Netgalley November I figured it would be good to continue with these posts. I might do them less frequently after this, but we’ll see how it goes. Let’s take a look at the next 8 books on my Netgalley Backlist.

The Empire of Gold – S.A. Chakraborty

I loved the first two books in The Daevabad Trilogy. It has amazing characters, an interesting magical system, and a world I’m still curious about. When my wish was granted for The Empire of Gold is was only a few days before release day and this book is almost 800 pages. So that wasn’t going to be something I could do. I really want to read the conclusion soon though.

Closer to Nowhere – Ellen Hopkins

I haven’t read many books in verse, but it’s something I do find really interesting. Closer to Nowhere seems like it’s going to be an emotional read. One of the main characters just lost a parent and their home situation doesn’t seem to be that great. The cover is stunning though!

Dress Coded – Carrie Firestone

I was sold when I read that the main character was going to start a podcast. I love elements like that in stories. Dress Coded deals with the characters dealing with standing up for something they feel strongly about. I think it’s important that you stand up for what you think is right, so it’s amazing that a middle grade book talks about that.

Watch Over Me – Nina LaCour

Nina LaCour is an author I’ve read before and I have to say the book was very emotional. Watch Over Me is the follow up to We Are Okay and that’s the book I’ve previously read. This book seems to have some magical realism. I’m curious!

Vicious Spirits – Kat Cho

Vicious Spirits is actually the second book in a duology and I didn’t know that when I grabbed it when it was read now on Netgalley. The first thing that drew my attention was the cover. Look at how pretty it is! The first book, Wicked Fox, was a present under the tree last year, so I should get started soon.

Lux: The New Girl – Ashley Woodfolk

Another book that really drew my attention as soon as I saw the cover. The cover is stunning and really pops out at you. When I read this would be the first in four books that deal with facing a crossroads of friendship, family, and love. Each book focuses on a different characters.

Darius the Great Deserves Better – Adib Khorram

Another book on my list that is a second book in a duology. Again, I didn’t know that when I grabbed it as a read now book on Netgalley. I have a feeling these two books will be emotional, but those tend to be the best kind of books.

Mistletoe and Mr. Right – Sarah Morgenthaler

To be honest, out of all of the books on my list this week I’m the most surprised I haven’t read Mistletoe and Mr. Right. I’m a big fan of anything Christmas, so I should’ve read this one already! Also, this book takes place in a small town. Another thing I love! Hopefully I can read this one this holiday season.


So these are the next few books on my Netgalley TBR. I’m really hoping to up my ratio a bit this month. You’ll be able to see if I’m successful at the beginning of December when we post our wrap up. Have you read any of the books on this week’s list? What book should I pick up first? Let me know in the comments!
