November TBR

I decided that I was doing away with monthly TBR lists, but I've also kind of changed my mind on my fall reading since I posted my fall TBR list ... so here I am, back with another monthly TBR list!

Towards the end of June, I planned out the rest of my reading for the year, thinking that if I focused on certain books, I might be able to get through the 17 books that I planned to read in 2017, as well as the ten series that I had planned to finish.  At this point in the year, I've tossed that all out the window.  At last count, I believe that I have four of the 17 books still to read, and plan to read one this month, possibly two.  Finishing all but two of that list is WAY better than I did last year, so I'm pretty proud of myself!  And, in all honesty, the two books that are left (The Bone Season and Graceling) are books that I'm not sure I'm even interested in reading at all anymore, but we'll see.  Maybe next year.



1. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
This book is my top priority this month.  At 21 pages per day, it might take me all month to finish it, but that's okay.  I'll probably pair it with some contemporaries, just to lighten the mood.  Books that are currently calling my name include...

2. Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
3. The Heart's Invisible Furies by John Boyne
4. The Elegant Gathering of White Snows by Kris Radish
5. Mercy or Keeping Faith by Jodi Picoult
In all honesty, I'm not sure which of these I'm in the mood for.  I just picked up The Elegant Gathering of White Snows and I've been sucked in so far, but I'm also battling a head cold, which always makes reading a little trickier!  Edit: After finalizing this post, the audiobook for Little Fires Everywhere came in at the library, so looks like I'm picking that one up first!

6. Robber Bride by Margaret Atwood
I don't know if I'll read this one in November or December, but I would like to pick it up before the year is over.  I've been eyeing Alias Grace on my shelves as well, and I have PVRed the show to watch after I read the book, but Robber Bride is a little bit shorter so I think I'll start with this one, and then move to Alias Grace later.  I've been craving another of Atwood's books since I reread The Handmaid's Tale earlier this year.

7. We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver
I've always been intrigued about this book, but equally terrified by it as well, especially now that I'm a mother.  I'm listening to it on audio, and I'm about two hours in and it's not as sad as I thought it would be?  It's our next book club book, and I can already tell that this will be a book that some love and some hate, which always makes for excellent discussion.

Plus, I'm also contemplating another Mistborn book, since I ordered the rest of the series.  Another round of Tome Topple starts mid-month, so stay tuned for a TBR post if I decide to participate!  We'll see how The Name of the Wind is coming along, and whether I just blast my way through that, or tackle another tome!  Who knows, maybe it might also be time to pick up A Little Life?  Oh, who knows -- I'm all over the map with my reading!!!

How about you?  What are you reading this month?  Have you read any of the contemporaries that I listed above?  I need some help deciding what to read along with The Name of the Wind!
