Ahh, November. One of my favorite months. Not only is it my birthday month, but autumn is in full swing. Leaves are fully peaked and falling, the weather is crisp, and you get to pack on layers of cozy sweaters and drink hot beverages all day.
I love Thanksgiving and I love preparing for the holidays, so, November is really where it’s at.
In November, I love to dive back into my favorite genres: historical fiction and fantasy. I like to read big, chunky books during the winter months. I love cozying up in my nook with a cup of tea and getting lost in a story. I have two months left to meet my Goodreads goal, and I have some PLANS.
Let’s get to November:
Vicious (Villains #1) by V.E. Schwab
I read The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue last year and did not enjoy it, but readers have encouraged me to give her Villains and Darker Shades of Magic series a try, so here I am! I am about 30% through this one already and it is definitely intriguing. Excited to see what comes out of it.
The Rose Code by Kate Quinn
I really enjoyed The Alice Network and look forward to reading Quinn’s latest book, The Rose Code. I’ve seen some great reviews on bookstagram for this one. This one is THICK, but I always fly through historical fiction books. The Rose Code is about three women who broke German military codes during the war and how they are torn apart by a series of events.
Vengeful (Villains #2) by V.E. Schwab
If all goes well with Vicious, I will be picking up the second book in Schwab’s Villains series (I believe a third one is in the works!)
Night Road by Kristin Hannah
Another Kristin Hannah. This one I plan on reading via audiobook. Knowing Hannah, I will make sure the tissues are nearby.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Now this one I am looking forward to! I read The Starless Sea this year and wasn’t a fan, but readers informed me this one is breathtaking. I also read that Morgenstern wrote this book during NaNoWriMo, which I will be participating in this year! I have this one in paperback and audio, so I will most likely do a mix and match with this book.
The Lions of Fifth Avenue by Fiona Davis
The cover alone has me interested, but give me a historical fiction about public libraries, suffrage, feminism … I am HERE for it.
What are you reading this month? Have any of these made it on to your list?
And, see what I’ve read so far in 2021!
