November TBR

It's been a while since I've done a monthly TBR, but I kind of miss them, so I thought I'd get back in the habit.  I know, now, after months of pretty much judging my reading patterns, that I get through about five books a month, and about that many graphic novels/manga as well.  My TBR is subject to change, but I'm fairly certain that these are the ones I will for sure get to.

1. Sword of Shannara
I've already started this one and I'm really enjoying it so far!  My original goal was to finish the first trilogy before the show started in January, but I've abridged that to hopefully finish the first two before the show starts in January.

2. Dawn of the Jedi
This is one that I've been saying I would get to for a while now and have just been putting off for no good reason.  I will be reading it for sure next month.  And I'm very, very excited.

3. Way of Shadows
There's a couple of reasons I'm getting to this series.  1) my roommate who swears by this series like I swear by Mistborn and 2) I have wanted to read it for a long while now.  So, the time has finally come.  I feel like I'm going to enjoy this trilogy a bunch.

4. Dead Man's Drive
I received this book from the lovely people over at Curiosity Quills and I'm very eager to read it.  It sounds very good, even though it's not something I would normally find myself drawn to.

5. Cress
So... I didn't know that Winter was coming out this month and have been totally unprepared because I haven't read Cress yet.  I will be reading Cress so that I can finally catch up.  It's another book I'm really excited to get to.

There are a couple other books I'm trying to aim to get to (Iron Warrior and Lock and Key) but they seem unlikely with the size of the books I have planned.  But, Winter break does start on the 17th, so I may find myself with a ton of extra time to fill with reading.  We'll see.

As for graphic novels and manga, I plan to continue with my binge-reading of Noragami and want to get caught up.  I'll also be reading the first volume of Guardians of the Galaxy for the book club and may end up picking up another graphic novel at some point, but I'm not completely sure.

TV wise, Jessica Jones is released this month, so I'm sitting here absolutely dying for it to start.  I'm also in a movie-watching mood, so I'll probably devour a few films at some point as well (I'm in the middle of Fargo) and I want to catch up on Once Upon a Time (I'm a season behind).

What do you guys plan to read this month?  Anything I've got on my list?  Let me know below!


  1. Fantastic pick!! Way of the Shadows is a great book and Locke and Key is one of my very favorite graphic novel series. I think you will like Cress. Scarlet was my favorite because I love Wolf. I'm looking forward to Winder coming out as well.

    1. I'm super excited for both Way of Shadows and Cress! Hopefully I'll get as much reading done this month as I want. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I hope you love Shannara! I first got into that series when I was in high school - there's a lot to read! I still need to catch up on the more recent installments. :)

    The show actually looks really promising so I'm really interested to see how it turns out.

    1. I'm so excited for it! So far I'm really enjoying it.
