Hello November – we’ve got HUGE reading plans! First – a little life update. I’ve already mentioned that I got the results of my CT scan and it was clear! My lymph nodes are still inflamed and weird, but it’s only reactive and there’s no malignancy! So the cancer isn’t back and I’m still cancer free. Actually, it was 2 years ago on Halloween that I was declared cancer free from my radiologist, so it was like a full circle thing. I also wanted to say a huge thank you for all your kind words and support. I’ve realized that I don’t need to suffer alone. I’ve always been the type of person to keep my feelings to myself because I didn’t want to burden anyone with my fears. My amazing husband (who is my rock – seriously) has taught me that support and sharing is needed. I’m not a burden and I need support. So THANK YOU to everyone for being there for me!!!!!! It really means a lot! Anyways, now that my anxiety has subsided, I can finally focus on books! I’ve got a lot that I want to read this month and some of them are chunky as all hell! Enough rambling, on with the TBR!
KINGDOM OF ASH by Sarah J Maas
IT’S HERE!! It’s finally time to end this series – and I’m not sure that I’m ready! The way that the book previously ended, it set this book up for a lot of pain and possible heart break. I have a feeling that it’s not going to end well…….. I’m scared lol! I’m also scared of the size…. IT’S HUGE! I finally got mine in the mail yesterday and the pages are so thin! 992 pages…… this one might take a while lol
THE WELL OF ASCENSION by Brandon Sanderson
I loved Mistborn so much that I decided to start the sequel! I think that I need to marathon this one and book three this month! But at 784 pages, I’m not sure there’s going to be time for both this month lol
BRIDGE OF CLAY by Markus Zusak
New Markus Zusak!! He’s such an incredible author! But since his books are so different from each other, I don’t really know what to expect. Oh wait! Yes I do! An amazing story! I actually like going into his books not knowing anything so I can experience it completely for myself
SCRAPPY LITTLE NOBODY by Anna Kendrick
I’ve seen quite a few people on Twitter talking about Non Fiction November – so I thought I would join in! It’s been a long time since I’ve read a non fiction, and I love Anna Kendrick so this is a match made in book worm heaven! I can’t wait for this!
THE CUCKOOS CALLING by Robert Galbraith
Yet another book that I’ve had on my shelf for years and haven’t read! I’m determined to get to this one! I’m a little nervous though – crime and mystery isn’t my thing. I hope that since it’s J.K. Rowling I might enjoy it. Time will tell!
TBR UNHAUL CHALLENGE – NOVEMBER EDITION!
THE SHADOW OF THE WIND by Carlis Ruiz Zafon
If you saw my wrap up yesterday, I didn’t get to one of the books in my challenge last month. Things were just too chaotic. So I used my one save of the year and saved this one! The rule is – I have to read it the following month or it HAS to go. No pressure or anything lol! But this was my last save of the year so I better read the ones chosen in December or there isn’t a chance!
THE LIGHTNING THIEF by Rick Riordan
My daughter chose this one because she’s actually reading it in class this month. She’s loving it so far and has actually drawn Greek inspired cabins for her art class! Anything that inspires her that much has to be good! I can’t wait to read this and talk to her about it!!
YIKES! 7 books on the TBR this month and quite a few of them are over 500 pages! I’m hoping that I stay motivated enough to get through them all!! I guess we’ll find out at the end of the month – wish me luck! LOL! What are you planning on reading in November?
Until next time, happy reading!
