The Books I Want to Read in November

November TBR

It’s November.. I’m slowly getting used to the colder weather and I’m really loving wearing my cosy knitwear and ankle boots.

This month I have a couple of exciting things planned. I’m going to try on my wedding dress for a first fitting and I’m going on a weekend trip to Ghent, Belgium, with my Boyfriend and our four best friends.

Also I’m participating in the Mythothon, a month-long readathon hosted by Foxes and Fairytales!

Let’s take a look at my November TBR and the Mythothon prompts!

 

Mythothon

The Mythothon is a month-long readathon inspired by Greek mythology. And although I’m not going to read mythology related books, the books on my TBR do fit the prompts. Also, the Mythothon has 25 prompts and off course I can’t read 25 books in November (I have to work, sleep and eat too), so I decided to choose a couple of prompts and make a TBR for just those prompts.

Mythothon

  • Zeus – King of the Gods. God of the Sky. Read a book at least 400 pages long.
    MacBeth by Jo Nesbo
    .
  • Hera -Queen of the Gods. Goddess of Marriage, Mothers and Families. Read a book about royalty.
    The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
    .
  • Hebe – Goddess of Eternal Youth. Read a Middle Grade or Young Adult book.
    Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
    .
  • Poseidon – God of the Sea. Read a book which features the sea – mermaids, pirates, surfers etc.
    Sea Witch by Sarah Henning
    .
  • Echidna – Mother of Monsters. Read a book about monsters – dragons, zombies, serial killers etc.
    The Silver Queen by Josie Jaffrey
    .
  • Gaia – Primordial Earth Goddess. Read a book which was published at least 5 years ago.
    Murder for Christmas by Francis Duncan
    .
  • Persephone – Goddess of the Underworld and Springtime. Read a book which is less than 200 pages.
    A Series of Unfortunate Events; Book 1 A Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket
    .
  • Hades – God of the Underworld and Riches. Read a book which you got for free (library, from a friend, ARC, Kindle offer etc.)
    Hannah Green and Her Unfeasibly Mundane Existence – Michael Marshall Smith

I’ll never be able to read all of these books, but the prompts are so fun and it was hard to choose just a few of them.

  1. Hallo, Hallo – yes, I am participating in #Mythothon!

    You could say I am going to be drowning in all things bookish this November, as like Annemieke – November has generally been strictly my month for focusing on #RRSciFiMonth where I get to share my sci-fi geekery with everyone. However, this year I really loved what Louise put together for #Mythothon which is why I worked on my reading list for this RAT quite early-on! Took me til tonight to start making my requests @ my library for the stories I don’t have on hand but the month has only just begun!

    I am also joining #NonFictionNovember for the 1st time – at least, I think it is?! lol Whilst at the very last hours of October, I decided to join #Nanowrimo for the 2nd time – 10 years after I won it for the first time!!

    My idea is to read by day, write by night and keep my mind half distracted with the stories whilst I find encouragement to seek out my own muse and write after hours! 🙂 Here’s hoping it all goes to plan!

    Like you, I loved putting together my post for #Mythothon!

    Which ones did you suggest to read are your top favourites? I was curious which stories you were going to start with as we kick-off the event?
