Happy November 1st, lovelies! I hope you all had an amazing Halloween last night! I can’t believe we are already into the eleventh month of the year, but here we are! And here are six of the books that I plan on reading in the month of November!
➽ Oathbringer (The Stormlight Archive, #3) by Brandon Sanderson:
This is the third book in this epic fantasy series! I’m sure every fantasy blog you all follow with have this on their TBR! And you all should keep an eye out on The BiblioSanctum, because Mogsy received an ARC because she’s the reviewing queen of all things fantasy and I’m stalking here every day to see if she loved this one!
➽ The Bear and the Nightingale (The Winternight Trilogy #1) by Katherine Arden:
I already told you guys that I was given this, signed, by the entire Goodreads team in San Francisco! This book means so much to me, and I’ll cherish it forever, so I figured I better at least read it, too! Also, Russian folklore and fairytales with a wintery scenery? Like, that’s my brand.
➽ The Girl in the Tower (The Winternight Trilogy #2) by Katherine Arden:
And since I have no control whatsoever, I also immediately requested an ARC for book two, without even having read the first book, because… reasons. If I love this one, I’m totally going to buy the European edition on Book Depository, though, because it’s honestly my favorite book cover of all time. Also, this releases on December 5th, 2017.
➽ Zenith (The Androma Saga #1) by Sasha Alsberg &, Lindsay Cummings:
This is a brand new Sci-Fi series that is cowritten by a very famous BookTuber. I’ll be completely honest, I love Sasha and I think she’s a sweetheart, and I requested this ARC just because I wanted to give her book a chance and to support her. I’m not sure if I will love it, but I’m going into this optimistically. Also, this is a buddy read with Jules! ❤ And Zenith is set to release on January 16th, 2018!
➽ Ever the Brave (A Clash of Kingdoms #2) by Erin Summerill:
This is another ARC that I was sent that I felt lukewarm about. I gave an ARC of Ever the Hunted two stars last year, but I thought the story has a lot of potential, which I’m hoping to see executed in this book. I’ll report back soon! Also, this comes out December 5th, 2017, too!
➽ Outlander (Outlander #1) by Diana Gabaldon:
And last, but not least, my bookish best friend, Paloma, has finally persuaded me to give Outlander a try. The biggest problem I have as a book reviewer is that I find it very difficult to separate the art from the artist, which holds true for separating the book from the author. I won’t lie, Diana Gabaldon has said some downright offensive and nasty things on Twitter, and it’s made me never want to touch this beloved series. But Paloma is my book twin and reading sister, so I have a good feeling that I’m going to love this. Also, she’s going to buddy read it with me and it’s going to make the experience even better, because I live for buddy reads with her! Wish me luck, guys!
Hopefully, I’ll be able to get to a couple other things this month as well, but my life always gets so hectic the closer and closer we creep into the holiday season! I wish you all the best books this November! Happy reading, everyone!
