Tackling My TBR: November 2022

Friday, November 04, 2022

Tackling My TBR is a monthly post, where I share my reading plans for the upcoming month. It's hard to believe that it is already November. We don't have much left in the year. And I still want to read so many books! 

Each month, I usually pick three pieces of paper out a jar and pick my TBR that way. However, we are going to do something a little different today. I have been journaling what I have been reading in a sort of bullet journal this year. I print out small pictures of the book covers of all the books I read to make my spreads more visually appealing. However, to save paper, I have been printing out a bunch of covers ahead of time and then pasting the ones I read during that month in my spread. Doing it this way, I have several covers printed out already that I haven't gotten a chance to read yet; so for the next two months I will be tackling those books. I've chosen ten books to read during November and hopefully, by the end of the month, I will have tackled all of them.

The Serpent's Shadow by Rick Riordan: I am super excited to read this one and complete the Kane Chronicles. I adore Egyptian mythology so I am loving this series. 

A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman: Did you know that this is being turned into a movie, starring Tom Hanks, and the movie is coming to theaters this month? While watching the television the other day, I saw the movie trailer and was so excited to finally pick up the book.

Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett: I have been working my way through Bennett's YA contemporary romance backlist so I can eventually read everything from her. Her writing is like a warm hug so no matter what the book is about, it will be a good time.

Black Sun by Rebecca Roanhorse: When this first came out, a lot of reviewers were raving how fantastic it was. I can't wait to finally dive into it and see if the hype was correct.

His Hideous Heart edited by Dahlia Adler: This book is a collection of short retellings of Edgar Allen Poe's greatest work. Plus, while the entire beginning of the book are the retellings, the other half is the original source work so I can look back onto his work if I need a refresher. I can't wait to dive in to these delightfully spooky tales.

Brain on Fire by Susannah Cahalan: This book has been on my shelves for years. I don't usually gravitate towards nonfiction, but I discovered that they made this particular book into a movie and am interested to see how they both compare to each other.

Lore Olympus volume 3 by Rachel Smythe: I adore reading books that reimagine Greek folklore and mythology. This graphic novel series follows the modern-day retelling of Hades and Persephone's story.

The Book of Azrael by Amber Nicole: It feels like I have been reading this one forever. Ebooks always take me longer to read than physical copies of books. The Book of Azrael totals around 800 pages, which is quite daunting. I am already quite a bit in the story and am liking it so far!

The Other Black Girl by Zakiya Dalila Harris: I have had this one on my shelf ever since it released. Usually, I don't read too many thrillers but this one definitely intrigued me since it is set in the publishing industry.

My Killer Vacation by Tessa Bailey: This one released this summer and I had to go out and buy it right away. I meant to read the book over the summer, but I didn't get to it. Tessa Bailey writes fantastic romances and when I heard she was working on this one, a mash-up between a mystery and a romance, I knew I had to give it a try. It sounds amazing!

What are you planning on reading this month?
