TBR List: November 2017

TBR Pile: November 2017

I skipped my TBR posts the last two months, but they are back! I tried to stack my list today with books I’m really interested in reading. I should really just title this month by favorite author list. So many great writers have new books out, and I am going to try to read them all. Haha.

I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump, so I’m hoping to find a couple of great books that really get my fired up about reading again…beyond audiobooks. I have been loving audio lately, but I miss my reading time. Stress can make it hard for me to relax and read print books, but I got a good start last weekend. I read Dreaming in Chocolate and There’s Someone in Your House for the better part of the weekend. That’s mind kind of weekend! Anyone else? Anyway…here’s what I have planned for this month.

Books I’ll be reading in November 2017

Why I got it: I love Gretchen Rubin! She’s the reason I started my YA book club and the reason I started my first blog. What will she inspire me to do next?

    1. Cool! It’s sitting on my night stand. I need to get to it soon. It’s been a stressful week, and I struggle with paper books during stress. Here’s hope things calm down a little this week, so I can read it. 🙂

    1. Yes, I’m sure. I’m trying to go in with realistic expectations. The audiobook is narrated by Rosario Dawson, so that should be good. I really like her.

  1. I’m curious about Artemis. I LOVED The Martian but I don’t usually like those kinds of books. So, I’m not sure if I would like it or not. Waiting for some of my fellow reviewers to let me know their thoughts…hint hint!

    1. Haha! I will definitely share my thoughts as soon as I finish it. I do enjoy sci-fi when it’s not too futuristic. I like more realistic, what I call “near future,” sci-fi better. We’ll see how I do with people living on the moon. It worked for me in the Lunar Chronicles, so here’s hoping I love this book too.
