November TBR: Ninth House + Seanan McGuire + Monthly Wrap Up Fail

I’ve been really in a reading mood lately, and I’ve been struggling with a terrible slump as well. I’ve been slumpy the past three months, and it’s frustrating and annoying. @HowlingLibraries understands this, her posts about overdue arcs, terrible reading slumps, and so forth are exactly the same sort of issues that I’m going through myself.

There are several books on my radar for November. It’s also Believeathon, but I highly doubt that I’ll be participating in any readathons this month. My priority goal is to simply knock out as many books as possible, instead of just the 15/20 books that I’ve been managing the past couple of months and that’s with forced attention to it. I’m hoping to knock out several arcs on my Netgalley, because that’s becoming a serious issue. I’ve got library books that are due. I’ve also several physical books that I *still* haven’t gotten to. The situation is critical. I need to get some serious reading done for the month of November.

So with that in mind, I’m putting up all the books that are on my radar that I’m going to read. I’m going to try to read 50 books this month. I know that sounds like an enormous amount, but there was at least two months previously that I almost made 50 before, reaching 45. So if I just push myself to actually read, damnit, I should get this well taken care of. {I’m also going to write reviews as soon as I finish reading the damn book, so that I don’t forget to do that later either.}

Also, apologies for failing the wrap up for the previous two months. I typed things out but never posted them, and really don’t feel like doing so. However, I vow to do so for November, especially with all that I plan on reading as well!

So, 50 books for November. Have I picked one up yet? No. But today is paying bills day, and so far I haven’t had a chance to do so. I’m going to read every couple of hours before bed, and first thing in the morning. I’m going to try to prioritize. Hopefully this will work. Thanks to @HowlingLibraries for kicking my ass into gear. Her posts about managing arcs are very inspirational!

Here are the books on my radar. (Apologies to those who are fixing to scroll, as well as for the above ranting at myself.):

Top Five Books I’m Reading This Month:


Random Books I Plan to Get To: 


Believe-a-thon Children’s Books I’m Reading: 


Those are just some of the books that I plan on getting to this month. Currently, I’m reading “The Glovemaker” by Ann Weisbarger, and next up is “Wine and Punishment” by Sarah Fox.  I’m going to TRY to do the believathon, but I highly doubt I’ll manage to with everything happening in November. Still, I fly through Children’s fiction pretty quick, so who knows, I might be able to manage reading all these books regardless. That’s my plan, anyhow.

Until next time,
