Welcome to November,
honestly I have no idea where the year has gone. We are entering the holiday season and that seems crazy fast. I can't believe we are here already.
Reading wise October was a great month and not just for new releases but reading for me in general , I really caught up and read much more then September but let's be honest it is not hard catch up with a one book month lol.
I also caught up on reviews and mostly updates, some I just skipped and posted the reviews.
Oh and I'm happy to report I had the time for my scary/ spooky reads this month and year, both books were awesome.
November looks like another great month for new releases here are just a few I'm really looking forward to.
The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black
Blood Heir by Amélie Wen Zhao
The Toll by Neal Shusterman
The Guinevere Deception by Kiersten White
Currently I'm reading The Burning Shadow by Jennifer L. Armentrout, the second book in her Origin Series, I'm only on page 100 or around there but so far I enjoy it.
When Evelyn Dasher crossed paths with Luc, she was thrown headfirst into the world of the Lux—only to discover that she was already far more involved in their world than she ever suspected.
Because the Luxen aren’t the only ones with a hidden past. There’s a gap in Evie’s memory, lost months of her life and a lingering sense that something happened, something she can’t remember and nobody is willing to tell her. She needs to find out the truth about who she is—and who she was. But every answer she finds only brings up more questions.
Her search for the truth brings her ever closer to Luc, the Origin at the center of it all. He’s powerful, arrogant, inhumanly beautiful, extremely dangerous…and possibly in love with her. But even as Evie falls for him, she can’t help but wonder if his attraction is to her, or to the memory of a girl who no longer exists.
And all the while, a new threat looms: reports of a flu-like, fatal virus that the government insists is being spread by Luxen. A horrifying illness that changes whoever it touches, spreading panic across a country already at its breaking point.
On Audio I'm listing to Darkdawn by Jay Kristoff, the third and final book in the Nevernight Series, I don't have much audio time right now but the little I got in I'm really loving it.
A ruthless young assassin's journey for revenge comes to a stunning end in the conclusion of this acclaimed epic fantasy trilogy.
The Republic of Itreya is in chaos. Mia Corvere has assassinated Cardinal Duomo and rumors of Consul Scaeva’s death ripple through the street of Godsgrave like wildfire. But buried beneath those same streets, deep in the ancient city’s bones, lies a secret that will change the Republic forever.
Mia and her brother Jonnen must journey through the depths of the ancient metropolis. Their quest will take them through the Godsgrave underdark, across the Sea of Swords, back to the library of the Quiet Mountain and the poisoned blades of Mia’s old mentors, and at last the fabled Crown of the Moon. There, Mia will at last discover the origins of the darkin, and learn the destiny that lies in store for her and her world. But with the three suns now in descent, and Truedark on the horizon, will she survive?
Next, I'm planning on reading the The Guinevere Deception as the I received the ARC yesterday, after that I'm honestly not sure yet, I might actually just do a random number thing to pick a book of my TBR.
That should be all, sometime in November there will be a new giveaway going up, so make sure to keep your eyes out for that. I also will try to get my Massive book haul up sometime, it really is massive and that's why I haven't had the time to do it yet or was not in the mood, hopefully soon, fingers crossed.
You can find any and all buy links in the reviews that will be linked below. Hope everyone has a warm and comfy November and if you are in the US and celebrating it HAPPY THANKSGIVING !!!
Hopefully see you all in December :)

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
Galaxy “Alex” Stern is the most unlikely member of Yale’s freshman class. Raised in the Los Angeles hinterlands by a hippie mom, Alex dropped out of school early and into a world of shady drug dealer boyfriends, dead-end jobs, and much, much worse. By age twenty, in fact, she is the sole survivor of a horrific, unsolved multiple homicide. Some might say she’s thrown her life away. But at her hospital bed, Alex is offered a second chance: to attend one of the world’s most elite universities on a full ride. What’s the catch, and why her?
Still searching for answers to this herself, Alex arrives in New Haven tasked by her mysterious benefactors with monitoring the activities of Yale’s secret societies. These eight windowless “tombs” are well-known to be haunts of the future rich and powerful, from high-ranking politicos to Wall Street and Hollywood’s biggest players. But their occult activities are revealed to be more sinister and more extraordinary than any paranoid imagination might conceive.
The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson
In a society steeped in tradition, Princess Lia’s life follows a preordained course. As First Daughter, she is expected to have the revered gift of sight—but she doesn’t—and she knows her parents are perpetrating a sham when they arrange her marriage to secure an alliance with a neighboring kingdom—to a prince she has never met.
On the morning of her wedding, Lia flees to a distant village. She settles into a new life, hopeful when two mysterious and handsome strangers arrive—and unaware that one is the jilted prince and the other an assassin sent to kill her. Deception abounds, and Lia finds herself on the brink of unlocking perilous secrets—even as she finds herself falling in love.
The Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson

Meanwhile, nothing is straightforward: There’s Rafe, who lied to Lia but has sacrificed his freedom to protect her; Kaden, who meant to assassinate her but has now saved her life; and the Vendans, whom Lia always believed to be savages. Now that she lives among them, however, she realizes that may be far from the truth. Wrestling with her upbringing, her gift, and her sense of self, Lia must make powerful choices that will affect her country… and her own destiny.
