November 2022 Hopefuls

Well, folks, it’s November. Yes, November. No, it’s not time for Mariah Carey Christmas songs. I said what I said. Not until after Thanksgiving, and even then I don’t want to hear it more than once per day. Though, if I’m being honest, even that’s too often.

Moving on! I read 3 out of the 5 books on my October TBR, which is great considering I traveled for 2 weeks out of the month. For November my TBR list is more like a list of “November Hopefuls.” I’m using this month to try to read all three of my BBNYA final round assignments. Anything else I’m able to finish will be a bonus.

There are quite a few November challenges going on: NetGalley November; SciFi Month, organized by Lisa at Dear Geek Place and Imyril at There’s Always Room For One More; and Norsevember (though, I’m not sure if this one is officially on this year?). Since I can’t share what my three BBNYA books are, here’s a list of my hopefuls that I picked to fall within these challenges. Though most of the books listed below fall under NetGalley November, I’m going to try to lowkey join SciFi Month since I had so much fun during its sister event, Wyrd and Wonder.

October 2022 TBR List

Hello, friends! I’m back yet again with another monthly TBR despite saying for years I hate them. This is my third one ever. There are more books in this list than I think I’ll be able to get to, but I can dream!

For October I decided to join Spooktastic Reads, a Wyrd and Wonder mini event. This event occurs over the 13 days leading up to Halloween (October 19-31) to celebrate all things dark in the fantasy genre. No sign up is necessary. Just have fun! For more information about the event, visit Ariana’s break down on The Book Nook.

Thankfully I have no ARCs due in October. (Okay, technically I have one, but I already read it.) Although I have my third round BBNYA assignment (full-length books), I more or less have free range for this month. I’ve never actually themed my reading list before, but I’m going to try to stick to Halloween-y vibes.

As usual the book covers link to the official synopses. I may be able to squeeze one or two more in here, but I have a lot going on in October, so I’ll keep the list to these five.

September 2022 TBR List

As I said last month in my August TBR post, I almost always stay away from making a TBR list. However, I followed my August one pretty well, so I thought I’d try it again. This time I have less ARCs to read, but I still have a minimum of four I need/want to read for various reasons. The book covers link to the official synopses.

August 2022 TBR List

I don’t normally make a To Be Read (TBR) list for myself because I’m a mood reader. I don’t like being boxed in to a set list. But since my NetGalley approvals with publish dates over the next month fit my mood, I thought I’d jump on the monthly TBR train. Here’s my slew of ARCs, personal copies, and library books I’m eager to read this month. The book covers link to the official synopses.
