I’ve said previously, that I hesitate to make a monthly TBR because it seems as if when I do, I read anything but those books. However, the books I’m adding for November are pretty much a sure thing. In fact, I’m somewhat cheating here, hehehe.
This weekend, I picked up the new illustrated version of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. I read it almost in one sitting. It’s one of my favorite books of all time. It’s beloved! The illustrated edition is gorgeous. It’s beautiful! If you don’t have it, GO BUY IT NOW!I It’s been a really long time since I’ve reread the Harry Potter series because I’ve read it so much, my first book fell apart. ::sigh:: Luckily, it wasn’t a first edition. As a result, I was barely in the front door before I sat down with my new edition and read it. Now, I’m rereading the entire series. Hence, the first six books on my October TBR are the Harry Potter books (having already read the first one).
I’m also still reading The Lies of Lock Lamora and will finish this book if it’s the last thing that I do. GRRR! I’m also rereading Nirvana by J.R. Stewart. This is an ARC and one I’ve read and reviewed already. However, the publishing company got in touch and asked me to read a revised copy of the book, which I’ve agreed to do and have already started reading. Sneak preview: It’s much better than the first version of the ARC. In fact, I’m amazed at what the reviewing and editing stage of writing can do for a story.
Should I finish these eight books, I also bought Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff this weekend. I am dying to dive into this book. The cover is one of the most unique in my library or, in fact, that I’ve ever seen. The novel itself is somewhat unique in that it is an illuminated novel. Book Riot recently did a write up of some illuminated novels you should check out.
I think this list should be enough to keep me occupied this month. If not, I have dozens of other books in my TBR pile to choose from. What’s on your reading list for November?
