It's Crunch Time | November 2022 TBR
Updated: Oct 30, 2022
There are only two months left in the year, and you know what that means? It means that it is crunch time because I still have a ton of books left on my 'Top 22 Books to Read in 2022' list. As such, pretty much everything I am going to be reading for the next two months is going to be from that list.
I might end up pushing some of the books on TBR to next month though since I do have some physical books I got from the library. I do also have some long and complicated books on here that might take some time to get through.
Onto the books!
House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski
This was actually on last month's TBR, and I did indeed start reading it. The issue with that though was that I was reading it as an ebook, as I usually do, but that not working at all. This is the kind of book you have to read physically and physically alone, so I had to put the book on hold and am currently waiting for it.
The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón
Continuing on with another big book, this is a book that has been on my TBR for a while but I just kind of ignored it. Not anymore though because it will be read this month. I honestly don't actually know what this is about...so I will be in for a surprise I guess.
S. by J.J. Abrams and Doug Dorst
Keeping it rolling with the overly long and complicated books we have this title which is recommended for people who enjoyed House of Leaves. Since I had to get that from the library I thought I might as well get this one as well. Funnily enough, when I went to go get it, it came in this folder and I was very confused. Turns out that the book comes with pieces of paper and cards and such, so this should be an interesting albeit long read.
The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich
In the same vein but slightly, slightly, shorter we have yet another multi-media book. This one sounds interesting as it is a mystery about an incident at a school which resulted in three students dying and one going missing. Sounds good to me.
Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine
Moving on from the long and complicated books, we have a book about a library, which is enough said for me. I love the idea of a magical library, but it doesn't always work out for me in execution. Hopefully, this doesn't end up being a bad book...
The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski
I haven't delved very far into The Witcher universe, having only watched season 1 of the show and having not yet played The Witcher III despite owning it. I will admit I am a bit nervous though because I don't think this is the best introduction to the series considering that this is a series of stories. Gotta start somewhere though.
Prelude for Lost Souls by Helene Dunbar
I've been wanting to read this book for a while now, despite the lower rating. The first line of the synopsis really grabbed me though, because I love books where people can talk to the dead.
Stardust by Neil Gaiman
This is a bit of a risky read for me. I absolutely adored the movie, so I don't know if reading the book is a good idea as it usually doesn't end up going well because I will end up comparing it to the movie.
Shards of Earth by Adrian Tchaikovsky
I completely forgot about the book of the month for the book club I am a part of... And, of course, it is another chunky book. This one I might leave until the end of the month if I have time.
The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas
Here we have the other book of the month for the book club I mentioned above. I am not a classics person, but this one is on my TBR so I might attempt to read it (attempt being the keyword). To be fair though, I do have two months to read this so if I do enjoy this then I can carry on into December.
