November 2020 TBR

Hey guys! As you can tell from the title, today I’ll be talking about my November TBR. I have two weeks off and England is in a month-long lockdown from tomorrow, so I should get plenty of reading done seeing as I can’t go anywhere. Here’s what I want to read:

The Devil and the Dark Water by Stuart Turton: I started this just before Halloween, but I was no where near finished so I’ve had to carry it over into November. I’ve got about 200 pages left now so I should finish it soon! It’s not at all what I was expecting, but I’m enjoying it so far.

The Lives of Saints by Leigh Bardugo: I’m hoping I can read this one fairly quickly seeing as it’s short stories. I wasn’t planning on buying it but I love the Illumicrate version. I really hope it’s better than The Language of Thorns. I struggled to finish that one and only enjoyed one of the stories.

The End of Her by Shari Lapena: This has been on a few TBRs now and I can just never seem to get to it. Now that I have plenty of time I should be able to get to it at last. I’ve found that Shari Lapena’s books are quick reads so I’m hoping I can read this in one sitting.

The Catch by T.M. Logan: I have really been looking forward to this one! T.M’s books are so gripping and easy to read. Another one I’m hoping I can read it a day or two. I’m intrigued by it as it’s about a father who’s instincts tell him that his daughter’s boyfriend is hiding a dark secret. Wonder what it could be!

The Vinyl Detective: Low Action by Andrew Cartmel: This was on my TBR last month and sadly I didn’t find time to read it. It’s quite a funny series so I’m hoping it will cheer me up a bit with the second lockdown! Who knew there’d be so many interesting stories to tell about a vinyl record collector.

The Gilded Ones by Namina Forna: Another one that’s appeared on more than one TBR! I’m terrible. I want to read some YA this month and I’ve been so excited about this one. I love the cover and the story sounds really unique!

Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater: Ah, this one has been on so many TBRs and I never seem to get to it. No promises again this month, but seeing as it’s been out a year now I would like to read it.

Artemis by Andy Weir: I couldn’t decide what to pick for the rest of my TBR so I sorted my shelf on Goodreads by random and this popped up. I’ve been putting this off for ages because I’ve heard it’s not very good, but I guess I’ll be attempting to read it this month!

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard: I said I wanted to read more YA so I can’t really be disappointed with Goodreads for giving me this. At least it will finally help me decide whether or not to unhaul this series! It’s been sitting on my shelf for years because I can’t decide what to do with it. I guess I can give it a chance this month and then if I don’t like it, I can either sell or trade the series.

Carve the Mark by Veronia Roth: I started this one so long ago and ended up not finishing it because of all the controversy surrounding it. I guess I should probably give it another chance and see if I actually like it or not.

So these are the books I’ll be aiming to read this month! I have no idea if I’ll manage them all but it’s worth a shot seeing as I have two weeks off! Also, trust Goodreads to pick the worst choices on my shelf. What books do you want to read this month? Feel free to leave a comment below. I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you so much for reading!

    I hope you enjoy the rest of The Devil and the Deep Water, I read it last month and I really enjoyed it.

    I hope you enjoy Artemis, I think it suffers a lot because the Martian was so amazing and it was always going to be hard to live up to that. I think if you go in knowing it’s it’s own thing that you’ll hopefully have a better reading experience.

    Happy reading!

      Thanks! I finished The Devil and the Dark Water and it got a bit confusing towards the ending, but it took me by complete surprise. 🙂

      That’s actually really helpful to think of Artemis that way. Hopefully it will help me to enjoy it more!
