Books I plan to read in November

I'm linking up again with The Deliberate Reader to share the books I'll be reading this month.

I read more last month than I originally thought. I read 6 of the 7 books I planned to read in October, I finished both of my remaining books from September, and I read 4 other unplanned books.

For November, I plan to read these 8 books...

The Program by Suzanne Young
How did I get it: I'm listening to it on Sarah's Audible account.
Why did I get it: It's my YA Book Club selection for November. I actually started listening to it the last week of October.

The Bronte Plot by Katherine Reay
How did I get it: I pre-ordered the Kindle version, and it was delivered to my phone this morning.
Why did I get it: I love and own her other two books, so I thought I should own this one too.

Fairest (The Lunar Chronicles #3.5) by Marissa Meyer
How did I get it: I borrowed it from the library.
Why did I get it: I want to re-read it before Winter comes out on the 10th.

Winter (The Lunar Chronicles #4) by Marissa Meyer
How did I get it: I will be buying it from Barnes & Noble on the day of the release with the gift card my soccer parents gave me. I'll be in Florida for work that week, so I cannot pre-order it, or it'll be delivered to my house while I'm in Florida. And I need to read it ASAP once it releases.
Why did I get it: See above. This book is probably my most anticipated book ever, after the last Harry Potter book. I absolutely love this series! As I know everyone else does too.

A Step Toward Falling by Cammie McGovern
How did I get it: I borrowed it from the library.
Why did I get it: I really love her books, so as soon as I heard about this one, I reserved it from the library. I was hoping to get to it in October, but I ran out of time.

Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates
How did I get it: I borrowed it from the library.
Why did I get it: I read in John Green's AMA on Reddit that this is a book he thinks all young people should read. I thought I should read it too.

All In (The Naturals #3) by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
How did I get it: I will hopefully be borrowing it from the library. It's not in the catalog yet even though it release today.
Why did I get it: I love this series! So of course I have to read this one as soon as it comes out. If the library doesn't get it soon, I may need to break down and buy the Kindle edition.

Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
How did I get it: I borrowed it from the library.
Why did I get it: It's my 2015 Reading Challenge selection for November: a book I should have read in high school. While this book wasn't assigned to be in high school, I feel like that was the time of life that most people read this book. High school or college.

What are you reading this month?


  1. The first 5 books are all ones I want to read. I actually want to read Dairest this month too. Then I am going to wait for my library to get Winter in audio because I have listened to the rest of them and really liked the audio.

    1. My friend Sarah will probably get the audio, but I don't think I can wait for her to get around to it. :) I will likely listen to it again though as soon as she does get it. I think audio too, but it's too slow for something I really want to read. I want to be able to breeze through it as quickly as I want. And I'll have a lot of time in my hotel next week to read. I don't like to listen to audio while I'm just sitting there - I need to be driving or folding laundry or something.

  2. This is a great list! I'm reading The Bronte Plot and Winter, as you know. I need to read The Naturals series. I hear good things and I liked The Fixer, her other series. Is All In the last book in the series? It sounds like the title for a final book.
    Cassi @ My Thoughts Literally

    1. The Naturals series is so awesome. You should definitely read it. :)

      No, All In is book 3 of 4. But she just turned book 4 in to her editor, according to Twitter, so I think it's coming out in 2016.

  3. I've never read Catch 22 either. Somehow I missed reading a lot of those classics because I took mythology in high school instead and never had them in college either.

    1. I'm not a huge fan of classic literature, but I figured I'd give this one a try. We'll see how it goes. It's a long book. :(

  4. I never read Catch 22 - there are a lot of those sorts of books I somehow missed in high school. I haven't been that motivated to pick it up now though; generally classics aren't my thing. How is it going for you?

    I managed to resist ordering Winter but then was impatiently waiting for my turn at the library. Now I've got it and I'm finding that I wish I'd reread the others - I'm rusty on some of the specifics from the previous books!

    1. I am not a classics fan either. I am just trying to complete Modern Mrs Darcy's reading challenge for 2015. I haven't even started Catch 22. I'm intimidated by the length. I may end up picking something else. We'll see.

      Yes, I'm glad I re-read the other Lunar Chronicles books before reading Winter. There's so much going on in all of the books. You could always re-read them all again in the future, Winter included. :)
