It took me a little longer this month to decide on my November Reading List hopefuls. November has a lot of celebrations! It is Native American Heritage Month, Nonfiction November and NaNoWriMo. I decided to choose one book for each of the first two and work on writing my own for the last one 😉.
I only have two book tours this month for now, so I have more space for my mood reading habits 😀. One thing I do want to accomplish as the cozy season comes upon us is catching up on my 2020 backlist pile and giving those books some love. I’ve started to slow down on my NetGalley requests so that I can make room for reading more books that are on my shelves. So we will see how that goes…NCTE and the ALAN Workshop are coming up this month so there is some potential that that plan for my November Reading List will need to be adjusted.
November TBR Hopefuls
- Speaking of Race: Why Everybody Needs to Talk About Racism- And How To Do It by Celeste Headlee (Book Tour 11/5/21)
- Skin of the Sea by Natasha Bowen (Book Tour 11/6/21)
- A Snake Falls to Earth by Darcie LIttle Badger (Native American Heritage Month)(I may also read her other book, Elatsoe too!)
- Black Smoke: African Americans and the United States of Barbecue by Adrian Miller (Nonfiction November)
- These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong (I received an arc of the sequel, so I’m excited to check this series out)
- Huda F Are You? by Huda Fahmy (I picked this on name alone. It’s a graphic novel!)
I have a bunch of books that I started and I’m still reading for various reasons. I’m hoping to finally finish them up this month too.

Book Recs for Titles by Indigenous Authors
I am considering jumping on a Bookstagram reading challenge hosted by @_indigathon. Check out their posts for prompts and book recommendations to celebrate Native American Heritage Month. There are book prompts for Indigenous Joy, Land Acknowledgement, nonfiction and more. Let me know if you decide to join in!
Special thanks to all of the publishers who provided digital or physical copies of the Arcs featured on my November Reading List!
Are you planning to reading any books for Native American Heritage Month or Nonfiction November?
