October Book Haul, Wrap-Up, and November TBR 2017


Hello, fellow bookworms!!! 

Wow, I cannot believe how quickly October went and that we are already in November and the weather is chilly and that it's time to start preparing ourselves for the holidays!

I had a really good bookish month! I hope you did as well!!!

However, the reason why you won't find any "book pile pics" today is that I managed to not only lose my camera but my phone decided to die too, lol! So I'll be pretty quiet on my social media for the next few weeks while I try to replace both... but in the meantime, here's a wrap-up of my October and a peek at my November bookish endeavors :)

What I plan on reading in NOVEMBER


At this time of the year, I like to keep my TBRs pretty flexible! It's when I try to read books that I have been wanting to read this year but didn't quite have the time to do so... so this is my stack for November, however, if something else I'm in the mood for pops up, I'll definitely be picking it up ;) 

First, I hope to finish reading: 

- THE RULES OF MAGIC by Alice Hoffman (A/HB) 
- ALL THE CROOKED SAINTS by Maggie Stiefvater (YA/HB) 

And then, I hope I have enough time to read all of these: 

- THE SCORPIO RACES by Maggie Stiefvater (YA/HB) 
- HIDDENSEE: A Tale of the Once and Future Nutcracker by Gregory Maguire (A/ARC) 
- WONDER WOMAN: WARBRINGER by Leigh Bardugo (YA/HB) 
- WHEN THE MOON WAS OURS by Anna-Marie McLemore (YA/HB) 
- BRIGHT SMOKE, COLD FIRE by Rosamund Hodge (YA/HB) 
- WILLIAM'S WINTER NAP by Linda Ashman (C/HB) 
- PAPILLON GOES TO THE VET by A.N. Kang (C/HB)
- BEATRICE ZINKER, UPSIDE DOWN THINKER by Shelley Johannes (MG/HB)
