I can’t believe it’s already November! Time is flying! Let’s hope that the pages will be flying right along with it this month, because I’d really like to step up my reading game! Obviously I don’t want to overwhelm myself with too much stuff, but I still would like to dedicate time to read, as I do really enjoy books! Let’s check out the five books I have on my November TBR list!
Champion by Marie Lu
Genre: Science Fiction
Synopsis: June and Day have sacrificed so much for the people of the Republic—and each other—and now their country is on the brink of a new existence. June is back in the good graces of the Republic, working within the government’s elite circles as Princeps-Elect, while Day has been assigned a high-level military position.
But neither could have predicted the circumstances that will reunite them: just when a peace treaty is imminent, a plague outbreak causes panic in the Colonies, and war threatens the Republic’s border cities. This new strain of plague is deadlier than ever, and June is the only one who knows the key to her country’s defense. But saving the lives of thousands will mean asking the one she loves to give up everything.

It’s tragic story time. I finished the first and second book of this series in a week, and the second one ended on a terrible cliffhanger. The next day when I went to school, I hurried over to the library to check out the third one. I look on the shelf, and it’s not there. And it turns out the library never had it, and I had mistaken another Marie Lu book for it! So this means that I need to go to the bookstore ASAP, because I NEED this book! I will be reading it as soon as I get my hands on it!
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Synopsis: Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price—and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can’t pull it off alone. . . .
A convict with a thirst for revenge
A sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a wager
A runaway with a privileged past
A spy known as the Wraith
A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums
A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes
Kaz’s crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction—if they don’t kill each other first.

Looks familiar, huh? Yeah, this one’s a thick book, so it’s daunting to even look at, really. But I have heard that so many people love this book, so I’d really like to get to it!
The Gentle Rebel: 1775 by Gilbert Morris
Genre: Historical Fiction
Synopsis: The story of Nathan Winslow in The Gentle Rebel brings the saga of the Winslow family into the American Revolution. At first opposed to the idea of revolution, Nathan eventually becomes a Patriot. But his faith and courage are tested when he falls in love with beautiful Abigail Howland, a proud and spoiled Tory.

I got this as a birthday present from my bestie (Thank you Christian Girl Writes! Go check her out!) and I was super excited about it! I’ve been getting back into historical fiction, and the Revolutionary War is one of my favorite time periods to learn about, So I really want to get to this one!
The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan
Genre: Greek Mythology
Synopsis: How do you punish an immortal?
By making him human.
After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disorientated, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus’s favour.
But Apollo has many enemies—gods, monsters and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed. Apollo needs help, and he can think of only one place to go… an enclave of modern demigods known as Camp Half-Blood.

Again with the Percy Jackson books! I might have said this in a past TBR post, but I have a hard time picking this one up because my main man Percy is barely in it. But I’m going to try to set that aside and give Apollo a chance! Wish me luck!
The Other Side of the Sky by Amie Kaufman and Megan Spooner
Synopsis: Prince North’s home is in the sky, in a gleaming city held aloft by intricate engines, powered by technology. Nimh is the living goddess of her people on the Surface, responsible for providing answers, direction—hope.
North’s and Nimh’s lives are entwined—though their hearts can never be. Linked by a terrifying prophecy and caught between duty and fate, they must choose between saving their people or succumbing to the bond that is forbidden between them.

Now that I’ve finished the Mistborn trilogy, I’d like to get to this fantasy. It’s been on my shelf for awhile now, but (if you haven’t read my other Princess Geek Reads posts) I’ve heard that this one is a lot like a Brandon Sanderson novel, so I didn’t want to be reading this one and getting confused between Mistborn and this. Anyway, I really want to get to it now!
So that’s all of them! I’m finally getting out of my reading slump, so I can’t wait to spend a lot of time reading this month, especially since I’m getting a better handle on work and school. I hope you all have a great time reading as well!
Let me know in the comments what you’ll be reading this month! As always, God bless and have a wonderful week!
