Hey everyone! How is it already a week into November. Nanowrimo is in full swing, so there’s that. I’m already behind there but I have been writing every day, so there’s that. When it came to picking this month’s cards I was very much trying to go easy on myself, not just because of Nano but also because I would really like to make some progress on catching up on a number of things this month. Let’s get to the picks!
- Two of Hearts – Fantasy
- Five of Diamonds – YA
- Jack of Spades – Under 300 pages
- Two of Diamonds – Middle Grade
- Three of Diamonds – Random Letter/Title (I)
- Eight of Hearts – Random Letter/Author (T)
So like I said I went into this wanting to be kind to myself, so I took that theme seriously. For a fantasy I chose the seventh volume of the Buffy reboot comics. To be fair I’m kind of hate reading these right now, I want to give them a chance of course, but to me Buffy canon is the ultimate. I’m sure newcomers to the series would enjoy these new comics, but for me I keep hoping they redeem themselves.
For YA and under 300 pages I went with the next two volumes of Kamisama Kiss (19 and 20). Yes part of this was to go easy on myself, but this is also one of the series I want to finish this year and I’m so close (there are 25 volumes total) so I need to get through them.
For middle grade I chose the second book in the Crowns of Croswald series. It’s been a while since I read the first one and I definitely want to continue on with this series, so this was a good opportunity to do so.
I had a hard time finding a book that I wanted to read that started with an I, so this was an adventure. I finally settled on If Walls Could Talk, a cozy mystery I barely started a while ago when it was gifted to me. It ended up getting put down for no reason, so I’m glad to be getting to it.
I then got the shock of another random letter selection, this time for author name. Thankfully this can be either first or last name, so I selected Odsburg by Matt Tompkins.
So those are the picks for November! I know I’ll be able to get through the manga and graphic novel pretty quickly, but we’ll see what happens with the rest as well as the catching up I need to do! What is on everyone else’s TBRs?
