Well, if you’ve been around for a while then you know that I put together a TBR list for November and I was determined that this would be the month that I would tackle the dang thing. So did it happen? That, my friends, would be a big fat NO. Don’t get me wrong, I still managed to read a decent amount, but it just wasn’t what was on the list.
If you recall, this was the list:
- Tell Me Three Things – Julie Buxbaum
- What to Say Next – Julie Buxbaum
- Meet Cute – YA Anthololgy
- Every Last Word – Tamara Ireland Stone
- Wait for Me – Caroline Leech
- The Anatomical Shape of a Heart – Jenn Bennett
- More Happy Than Not – Adam Silvera
- On the Fence – Kasie West
- 44 Chapters About 4 Men – BB Easton
- On the Way Down – Ella Fox
- The Lady Traveler’s Guide to Scoundrels and Other Gentlemen – Victoria Alexander
- Wrangler’s Rescue – BJ Daniels
- Desolate – Autumn Grey
- Falling for the Playboy – Kennedy Fox
- Let There Be Light – AM Johnson
Honestly, as I was looking at that list and adding in the links to the reviews, I realized that I actually did even worse than I had thought in my head. Of the 15 books on the list, I read 6. SIX! That’s it. That’s a 40% completion rate. That’s an F…for failure. I’m giggling to myself at the absolute absurdity of this whole thing. Make sure you stick around for December when I attempt and most likely fail again…
I guess the most important question regarding this failed TBR is what do I do with the unread books? Do I roll them over to December and attempt to read them during that month, or just wipe and out and start with a new list? This is a big conundrum because honestly, I do still want to read those books, but mostly likely not next month?!? Help me out here, and drop a comment below and let me know what you think I should do with the other 9 books.
So aside from the six books on from my TBR that I read, I also read several others:
I’ll list links to all the reviews below, in case you want to check them out. But as you can see, despite not sticking to my original list, I still read 13 books which is only two less than I originally struck out to complete.
So now for the fun parts. My favorites!
Favorite New to Me Author: Further to Fall by Catherine Cowles. This book was everything and I ended up email Catherine and gushing all about this book and how much I loved it. One of the best debuts I’ve read this year!
Book I Never Expected to Love: 44 Chapters About 4 Men by BB Easton. I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect when I started this one, and was super hesitant and worried it “just wasn’t for me.” I ended up loving it, and can’t wait to read the other books in the series.
Most Anticipated Read: All We Want by J Daniels. This one was a surprise release and the minute it went live, I jumped on it. I have been in love with the Alabama Summer series since I first read Where I Belong. These characters feel like family to me, and it was great to be reunited with them for a while.
In all honesty, I enjoyed all the books I read this month. Some more than others, but not one book really stands out from the others has being my least favorite. I love months like this, when everything falls into place, and you enjoy pretty much everything you pick up!
