Bookish Item| Netgalley November 2023

It’s hard to believe we have a little over two months left in 2023! I’ve said it many times this year, but time really is flying by. Last November I participated in Netgalley November and I want to do the same this year. One of my reading goals is to increase my feedback ratio and I haven’t done great the last two months.

So today I want to talk about some of my Netgalley eARCs I’m determined to read next month. Keep on reading to see what my plans are!

Wreck the Halls – Tessa Bailey

Of course, I had to start off with Wreck the Halls. For me November and December are holiday season, so I read a lot of Christmas related books. Tessa Bailey tends to be hit or miss for me, but her last few books have gone pretty well. Our main characters team up to convince their estranged rock star mothers to play a Christmas Eve concert. The synopsis says this is a rom-com and I’m here for that!

The Hexologists – Josiah Bancroft

After writing down this list I realized how many of these I actually have physical copies of. Including The Hexologists, which kind of defeats the purpose of having the eARC, haha. The Hexologists is about a married couple that solves magical mysteries. That caught my attention right away.

The Long Game – Elena Armas

I didn’t love or hate The Spanish Love Deception, but I just liked it. The Long Game is one I’m curious about, because it’s a grumpy/grumpy romance, haha. I love those and it’s a sports romance as well.

The Night in Question – Kathleen Glasgow & Liz Lawson

The Agathas was a pleasant surprise earlier this year, so I was excited to dive right in with The Night in Question. As usual I got distracted, so it hasn’t happened. I did pick up the paperback of this one, so I’ll be knocking off a physical book when reading this as well. I’m excited to see what mystery our characters have to solve this time.

All I Want for Christmas – Maggie Knox

Like I already said when talking about Wreck the Halls, we’re heading into holiday season and I love it. All I Want for Christmas is actually a holiday romance I didn’t get to in 2022. Our main characters are fake dating, so that’s something that always catches my attention.

Belladonna – Adalyn Grace

Belladonna has been a book I’ve been saving, because we were going to do a group read of it for my series slayers group. Except more books were announced, so we decided to read something else. After hearing so many amazing things about it I really want to read it now that the sequel is out.

Do Your Worst – Rosie Danan

I enjoyed The Roommate by Rosie Danan, so I was excited when I read about Do Your Worst. Our main characters are an occult expert and a disgraced archeologist. It’s been quite some time since I read an enemies-with-benefits romance, so I’m intrigued.

Powerless – Lauren Roberts

Powerless is a book I keep seeing around, because it actually already published in the UK and will be out in the US in November. So I actually bought the paperback, because the eARC I have can only be read on the Netgalley app and I’m not a fan of reading on my phone. I forgot to check before requesting. Anyways, Powerless is the first book in a new fantasy romance trilogy. I’m hoping I love it as much as I think I will.

Curious Tides – Pascale Lacelle

It’s the season for dark academia and Curious Tides is high on my want to read list. I actually wanted to read this already, but other books keep getting in the way. Our main character is trying to unravel the truth behind a secret society that have been involved with her classmates’ death. That definitely sounds a bit dark!

The Unmaking of June Farrow – Adrienne Young

This time a year is perfect for atmospheric books (darker/rainy days) and I have a feeling The Unmaking of June Farrow fits that perfectly. A woman risks everything to end her family’s curse, solve her mother’s disappearance, and if that wasn’t enough to also find love. I’ve heard great things about this book so far.


So here are ten of my Netgalley eARCs I want to read in November. Have you read any of these? Or do you want to? If not, if you have Netgalley tell me what eARC you’ll be reading next. I’d love to hear from you!
