November TBR

November TBR

November is that dull period between Halloween and Christmas that is perfect for cramming in some good reading. The weather is colder, the nights are darker and ultimately, we’re all just looking to get a little bit more cosy. So, to welcome in this sleepy month I wanted to share with you my November TBR. I don’t have any particular reading goals for this month but I thought it could be a good time to catch up on some of the books I have wanted to read and maybe carry on the spooky vibes. I will put links to each of the books in each section and I will also leave a link to my Goodreads at the bottom of this post so you can follow along with my reading journey if you wish!

Megan Charlie  November TBR - Gild by Raven Kennedy

Gild- Raven Kennedy

Greek mythology, fairies, fantasy and romance. I was sold on this book the moment I heard about it.

This is a king Midas retelling from the presepctive of a woman that has been golded (turned to gold by Midas’ touch). The woman is clearly in love with Midas and beleives her life confinded within the palace walls is satisfactory as she is with him. This is until she is sold by Midas during a war and her love and trust is broken.

Megan Charlie November TBR Lore by Alexandra Bracken

Lore- Alexandra Bracken

This book has been sitting on my bookshelf for… a while. When I first got this book I was incredibly excited to get into it, however, since then I have seen a lot of mixed reviews. Some people loved it, others found it confusing and hard to follow. So, although I am a little apprehensive I think it’s time to delve in and form my own opinions.

The book is centered around a deadly game called the ‘Agon’ which was created by Zeus to punish the other gods. Not many of the original gods remain and have been taken over by mortal successors. Lore vows to survive the games and teams up with a wounded Athena to do so.

Megan Charlie November TBR The Strange Case of DR. Jekyll and Mr Hyde

The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde- Robert Louise Stevenson

The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde has been on my TBR for the longest time. I think this will be the first book I tackle in November as a classic horror is just what you need to keep the spooky season vibes going.

This book is a victorian psychological thriller bringing to life a tale of split personality. Dr Jekyll is a well-respected scientist who dabbles in the darker side of science. He does this by brining out his ‘second nature’ – Edward Hyde. Mr Hyde commits horrible crimes throughout the novel and eventually becomes detrimental to himself and Dr Jekyll.

Megan Charlie November TBR Madam Phoebe Wynne

Madam- Phoebe Wynne

Described as a ‘feminist dark academia’ with an eerie, gothic atmosphere. I am so excited to read this.

The main character of this novel is starting a job as the classics teacher of an isolated, Scottish school. She soon realises that the school has dark energies within it and we follow her as she tries to find a way to escape the fate it has in store. Goodreads describes this book as ‘a darkly feminist tale pitched against a haunting backdrop,’ what is there not to love?

Megan Charlie TBR If We Were Villains M.L. Rio

If We Were Villains- M.L. Rio

This is honestly the book I am most excited about. Another ‘dark academia’ book with themes of murder. I have read a lot of good reviews about this book and I do have high expectations. I’m expecting to be gripped by suspense and mystery.

We’re following the character, Oliver Marks, who is a university student studying Shakespeare. We are following his story after he is released from prison for murder to reveal whether or not he really did it.

There are a good few other books I would like to read this month, whether I get to them or not is a different story. The ones in this post are definetly the ones I am prioritising getting to and I am hoping for some fairly high book reviews to come out of it.

I would love to hear in the comments which books you’re hoping to read through November!
