As a book lover, November is one of my favorite months. Think about it: warm drinks, cozy atmosphere, holiday themed books, making book gift lists. Plus there is a built in Thanksgiving break where all you have to do is say you need help with the dishes after dinner and everyone disappears so you can get comfy in the kitchen and read uninterrupted to for a while. A book lovers dream = peaceful reading time lol!
This month I am especially excited because one of my most anticipated reads will be hitting the bookstores! I have been waiting for Bloodmarked, the sequel to Tracy Deonn’s Legendborn to come out since last year. It was originally scheduled to come out in July, but got delayed until November. Now since I was approved for an arc my major dilemma is do I read it now or save it for the publishing date on November 8… Either way, I can guarantee that I will be a barely functioning human being because I know it’s going to take me a whole day and a night to finish it.
Most Anticipated Book of the Year: Bloodmarked by Tracy Deonn
I always have a steady book stack of nonfiction reads at hand. So November makes me happy, because it is a great opportunity for me to share my love of nonfiction. I am a mood reader, so this is a just a short list of what is on my Nonfiction TBR this month. I’m sure I will add or swap out as the month goes on, but these are the ones I’m excited about and they come out in November.
