Ah! October really just flew by and I am scrambling to catch up. November means colder day, NaNoWriMo, and less time for reading…but I am really hoping to get a good amount of books read this coming month!
Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare
As I have mentioned in my previous reading updates, I am currently re reading The Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare, and am loving it! Clockwork Prince is the second in the trilogy, which follows the prequel, Clockwork Angel. Clockwork Angel follows Tessa Gray, an American girl sent to London to visit her brother, but upon her arrival is kidnapped by the “Dark Sisters” for her mysterious shape shifting talents. These books take place in the late 1800’s in London, which makes it that much better too!
Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia
I am in the mood to re read, so I decided to pick up a fun contemporary as the days get darker and colder. Eliza and Her Monsters is about a girl named Eliza who is the anonymous creator of the online webcomic phenomenon “Monstrous Sea”. She is awkward, quiet and very relatable. This book has some romance sprinkled in as well, but ultimately it is about feeling comfortable with who you are. I read this back in July for the BookTubeaThon and absolutely adored it so I am looking forward to revisitng these characters.
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas
This was a book that I read only a few months ago as well, but I really want to try reading the second one again so I thought diving back into the first one would make that process easier. A Court of Thorns and Roses is about a girl named Feyre who goes hunting in the woods, only to shoot a wolf that is really a faerie. Killing a faerie is a crime, so when she is given the option to die or live out the rest of her mortal life in the faerie realm as a punishment. She chooses to live, and as the story goes on she realizes that her captor may not be the beast she thought he was. This is a very steamy fantasy book and I am really looking forward to refreshing my mind on this world!
Since November is going to be a very busy month writing and school wise, I want to keep by TBR low so I don’t disappoint myself too much…hopefully I will be able to squeeze a few more books onto there but only time will tell. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: NaNoWriMo Prep #4!
