Hi you guys, and happy November! 🙂
This is one of my very favorite months and hopefully it will be filled with some of my very favorite reads as well. It’s looking promising, since my plans for the month include:
- Finishing up the Grishaverse books
- Reading a couple ARCs I’ve been anticipating
- Catching up on a bunch of Shadowhunters content
And I am so very excited about all of it! But, as always, this is still going to be a somewhat tentative TBR. There are some books on this list I’m pretty much set on reading this month, but others I’m still iffy about. I do have good feeling I’ll stick to this list though because I (kind of?) have a solid plan this time! So we’ll see. I say I’ll read all of these now, but things can always change, which is totally fine.
Okay let’s get to this TBR!
Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
First order of business: finishing the Grisha trilogy! My current read, Ruin and Rising, is the last book in the series and I’m finding it hard to believe that this experience is nearly over. Even though it was a rough start, I’ve honestly grown unexpectedly fond of this story and these characters. It’s also been a perfect introduction to the world that’s in my next read as well, which I’m sure you can all guess is…
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
YES I am finally reading the very beloved Six of Crows this month. You guys, my excitement and anticipation for this book has been unreal. I’m already so in love with this world from reading the Grisha trilogy, and I’m about 100% sure these characters are going to be everything to me. I mean, the tagline on the cover calls them “six dangerous outcasts” and, like, I’m already sold. Honestly can’t wait for this book to take over my life. ❤
Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
And of course, as long as all goes according to plan, I’ll be concluding my Grishaverse journey with Crooked Kingdom. How am I already so incredibly sad about this experience coming to an end without having read Six of Crows yet? I’m not ready.
You Asked For Perfect by Laura Silverman
At some point during all of these fantasy reads, I’ll probably be in the mood to take a break with a contemporary. You Asked For Perfect has been one of my most highly anticipated reads for 2019 and I’m so thankful to have been approved for an ARC! It definitely sounds like such an important (and relatable) read that touches on academic pressure.
A Place For Wolves by Kosoko Jackson
One more ARC I have planned for this month and one I’ve been looking forward to a lot. Just based on the synopsis alone, it sounds like A Place for Wolves is going to become one of my favorites. I have a good feeling about this one. Plus, it’s #ownvoices!
Ghosts of the Shadow Market short stories by Cassandra Clare
Fact: I don’t know much about these other than the fact that Jem is involved, and that probably means I’m going to be an emotional wreck. I can’t believe I have yet to read any of these short stories, but I thought I’d save them for this month for when I’m frantically catching up on all the Shadowhunters content! Plus, since I haven’t read any Shadowhunters books for years, these will probably be a good way to re-immerse myself in this world (and also make me desperate to reread The Infernal Devices because… Jem).
Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare
The reread of my dreams. Since it’s been so long since I’ve read Lady Midnight, I’m going to have to pick it up again before I continue with the rest of The Dark Artifices. But I have absolutely zero complaints about that. Emma Carstairs is truly an icon and I miss the Blackthorns with my whole heart and oh boy I cannot WAIT to experience this again.
Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare
My final read for the month will be none other than the presumably heartbreaking Lord of Shadows. This will be my very first read of this! And honestly I have no good excuses for why I haven’t read it yet other than I’m terrified for the cliffhanger and my fragile heart cannot take this pain Cassie Clare likes to put us through. This should put me right on schedule for when Queen of Air and Darkness comes out in early December!
And that’ll conclude this month’s TBR!
The only books I’m still a little iffy on are the ARCs because there’s a chance I might change those out for others I still need to get to. It just depends on release dates and what I’m in the mood for honestly. Either way, I’m looking forward to this TBR so very much and cannot wait for this month of reading. All the Grishaverse and Shadowhunters is making me SO EXCITED.
I hope you all have a wonderful November and happy reading! ❤
