too mch tbr november

Uhhhh, November. My “catch up to all the books I didn’t read in October” month. Can you hear the loud sigh coming out of me? I didn’t mean for my TBR to run away from me, but it did.

For those who do not know, Too Much TBR is a way to help me see which books I really need to read and tackle them. Is it effective? Perhaps. It helps a lot seeing a visual of the books on my TBR pile.

Let’s discuss what I read last month, and what I’m reading this month!

BACK IN OCTOBER

Uhhh, my life wasn’t kind to my books or my reading abilities in October. I spent majority of the month in a reading slump because stress refused to let me focus on reading. It felt quite weird to not be reading; it sucked. From the eleven books I wanted to read last month, I’ve finished four of them, and started on three of them.

The four I finished were: Gertie’s Leap to Greatness, Demon Vol. 1Tetris: The Games People Play, and Iron Cast. They were all wonderful! Highly recommend all of them.

The three I started were: This Adventure EndsRebel Genius, and The Infinity Years of Avalon James.

I never got around to reading Crooked KingdomFoxheartor Finding PerfectI’m saving A Monster Calls for closer to when the film comes out.

PRIORITY NOVEMBER READS

Currently readingThis Adventure Ends (this has been really delightful to read!), The Infinity Years of Avalon James (Still at the beginning but excited for the friendship!), and Rebel Genius (renaissance + art).

The other books I plan to read (*cross my fingers*):

Note: All these books here do not account for other books that may slip into my TBR list (because mood reading will probably happen) nor of the comics I will be reading. I’m sure I missed other books I want to read this month too, but since I can’t remember, it must not be priority, right? Let’s hope I make a dent in my TBR books for November unlike October!

How was your October? Tell me what’s on your November TBR list. Have you read any of the books on my lists? Or are you planning to read them?

  1. I hope you finish This Adventure Ends!! I really loved that one. There’s not too many friendship centered YA books around anymore, so it was refreshing to read about such strong friendships :)

  2. It’s been years since I read A Monster Calls and would really like to re-read it before the movie comes out if I can. I hope you enjoy it! :)

    I’m so happy to see that you’re enjoying THIS ADVENTURE ENDS! That book is wonderful. Also, I still have to read Rebel Genius. How are you liking that one?

  4. A Monster Calls is on my TBR,too! I have heard such good things. Stress and reading have a funny relationship. It’s easy to get too stressed to feel like you have the time to read, but at the same time relaxing and reading is exactly what you need to destress. Life!
