It’s NaNoWriMo! But I think I’ll squeeze in a book or two 😉
October was intense! Well not just October but the last three months have been filled with tons of books. I’ve read 10+ each in the last three months alone. Finally I’m having a minor reading break to focus on my writing with NaNoWriMo. However, my day to day job is taking me away from home from Monday to Fridays. I’ve been commuting now for thee weeks and it will continue.
I’ll be doing separate NaNo weekly updates as always but I have yet to decide which day of the week I’ll do it. Maybe on Fridays or Saturdays, maybe…
Anyway. Let’s dive in!
The links will take you to their GoodReads page for each book. It the book doesn’t have a GoodReads page, the link will take you to their Amazon page. They are not affiliated links.
The Night Tiger by Yangsze Choo – This is my office book club pick for November and I wanted to read it last month but didn’t get to it. Hopefully I can read it before our book club meeting, which is always a bonus. I have heard the audiobook version of the book is really good and I have my audiobook version waiting 🙂
The Burning God (Poppy War #3) by R. F. Kuang – I didn’t get to this in October and to be honest it was on the bottom of the priority list. I’m a bit scared going into this book as I think it’s going to hurt massively…
About Writing by Gareth Powell – the perfect read for NaNoWriMo! ha!
Starsight (Skyward #2) by Brandon Sanderson – I borrowed this from a friend in July and haven’t gotten to it yet. I might read it in December instead but I’ll put it on here as a reminder that I have yet to read it 🙂
Becoming a Writer by Dorothea Brande – another NaNo read 😏 just to keep up the motivation.
Midnight Sun by Stephanie Meyer – I’m so curious! A quick addictive read in the middle of NaNo would be a welcome break I think. Or I might save it for the end.
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas – This is my big read of the year! For the last three years I’ve read one 800+ page classic a year. It all started with Les Miserable, then Anna Karenina and last year was Gone With The Wind. However, in those previous years I started the book towards the end of the year leaving me to rush to finish it on New Years Eve. I have finish all those three long classics just before midnight every time. Three years running! I won’t have it this year! This year I’m starting yearly. And hopefully finishing in a decent time too. I hope to finish it sometime around summer so you’ll see this book a lot on my posts.
Update April: I didn’t manage to get started on this in March like I planned to. Maybe this month will be better…! I need to make a start on this. If I can do single-digit progress on this book I will be very happy 😀
Update May: This is the 3rd month I have it on my TBR without actually starting it… Though I have opened it and read part of the introduction… which isn’t saying much but hey! its a small step forward though I don’t count that as starting the book.
Update June: AAAAAARG!!! Just get started on it already!!!
Update July: ……………………………………………………………………..*eye roll* still not started. I might save it for TomeTopple in August tho.
Update August: oh yeah! i almost forgot about this book. Maybe I should incorporate this into TomeTopple?
Update September: I only have 30 hours left! Yay! So that means I’ve done about 22 hours and 4 short hours away from halfway 🙂
Update October: I only have 20 hours left!! Slow and steady progress 🙂
Updater November: No progress since last month so I’m hoping to get some done during this month.
Have you read any of these? What did you think?
What’s on your TBR this month?
