Reading Queue is a monthly meme hosted by Books: A True Story and Book Tasty where we can get together and talk about the books we hope to read in the coming month and the books we read last month. So write up your own Reading Queue post and then go check them out!

October was atrocious for me! We were busy every weekend and many weekday nights as well. I was super slow on posting for the month and read almost none of the books on my October Reading Queue list. It was really horrible for me. All of the activity drained me of energy which left none for reading or posting and I have a horrible time finishing any “required” reading when I’m not in a good mood so most of what I read was not on my list and was whatever I felt like reading at the moment. Needless to say, my November Reading Queue will look very similar to my October Reading Queue. I hope October was a better month for you than it was for me!

November Reads

Blackout Time After Time (Time Between Us, #2) Across a Star-Swept Sea (For Darkness Shows the Stars, #2) Never Fade (The Darkest Minds, #2)
Blackout by Robison Wells and Time After Time by Tamara Ireland Stone and Across a Star-Swept Sea by Diana Peterfeund and Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken: These are all carryovers from October that I didn’t read. They’ll be necessary reads for November. Hopefully I can get through all of them and be caught up by the end of the month.

Allegiant (Divergent, #3) Just One Year (Just One Day, #2) Sentinel (Covenant, #5)
Allegiant by Veronica Roth and Just One Year by Gayle Forman and Sentinel by Jennifer L. Armentrout: These are three books that I’d really like to get the chance to read. I pre-ordered Allegiant but it didn’t come right away and I’ve been spoiled so I’m a little less excited to read it now but I think once I’m in the right frame of mind I’ll tear right through it. Just One Year is one I don’t have yet but am hoping to get soon and can finally see what Willem was up to all year! I also pre-ordered Sentinel and it came on time! I can’t wait to read this one!

Racing Savannah These Broken Stars (Starbound, #1)
Racing Savannah by Miranda Kenneally adn These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman: If I’m lucky enough to get through all of those books then I’ll start on these. I’m looking forward to the next Kenneally book and learning about these characters and I’ve already heard some great things about Kaufman’s book so I’m eager to jump on that one too!

No One Else Can Have You Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock
No One Else Can Have You by Kathleen Hale and Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick: I just finished No One Else Can Have You and it was really good. Creepy and funny and engaging until the end. I’m listening to Leonard Peacock on audiobook and so far it’s pretty depressing but I am liking the narrator.

October Reads

Crash into You (Pushing the Limits, #3) Jessica Darling's It List #1: The (Totally Not) Guaranteed Guide to Popularity, Prettiness & Perfection (Jessica Darling's It List, #1)
Crash Into You by Katie McGarry and Jessica Darling’s IT List by Megan McCafferty: I loved Isaiah. I love him even more after this book. I highly recommend this one if you’re a fan of McGarry’s other books. Jessica Darling was just that. Darling. I would definitely recommend this cute middle-grade book to anyone looking for a quick, fun read. I want to pick up the adult Jessica Darling series now!

Eat, Brains, Love Coraline
Eat, Brains, Love by Jeff Hart and Coraline by Neil Gaiman: Two good books to read in October though I didn’t love either one.

Crash (Crash, #1) Venom (Secrets of the Eternal Rose, #1)
Crash by Nicole Williams and Venom by Fiona Paul: I enjoyed this story and the characters but it was particularly original. Still, I do plan to read the next one. Venom was just okay for me. I’m not big on historical fiction and this one dragged a bit in the middle but the narrator on the audiobook is one of my favorites.

 

I know I’ll never get through all of those November books but hopefully it’ll at least give me enough choices so that I’ll stick to my queue and not stray so much from my list this month.

Did you make a Reading Queue post this month? If so, leave a link for me! If not, what book are you most looking forward to reading in November?

  1. I also fell behind in October and so I have a carry over book. I have so many books I want to read this month. I haven’t started Allegiant yet because I’m scared to, but it’s next in my queue. I’ve started These Broken Stars. I’m only 2 chapters in but I like it so far.
