November 2022 TBR

Happy TBR Thursday! It’s been a bit since I’ve done a monthly TBR post, aside from my spooky-themed October TBR.

To be honest, I’ve been feeling pretty overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of unread physical books in my home. I just haven’t had that much time and energy to read over the last couple months due to the busiest fall semester I’ve ever had at work, so it feels like the books are sitting upstairs, judging me for not reading them.

I’ve been trying to buy fewer books and focus on reading the ones I have so I can slowly chip away at my very full TBR cart. To that end, I’m setting some book goals for November now that travel and (hopefully) the busiest part of the semester are behind me.

NetGalley Reads

I owe my NetGalley shelves some attention. This month, I’m hoping to read:

Elle Cook’s The Man I Never Met, which comes out later this month. This is a missed connection rom com about two people who meet because of a wrong number text, and it seems very much in my wheelhouse.

Kelly Ohlert’s To Get to the Other Side, which comes out in December. This book has the somewhat ridiculous premise wherein a woman rescues a chicken and turns her life upside down in the process. I am kind of obsessed with that setup and can’t wait to see where it goes.

Physical TBR Reads

Never before in my life can I recall a time where I had so many highly anticipated reads gathering dust on my shelves. I still haven’t read Ali Hazelwood’s Love on the Brain or Beth O’Leary’s The No Show, so those two top the list for this month.

As much as I could go on about all the other physical TBR books I want to read, I’ve been averaging about four books a month lately. That’s been including the buffer of audiobook time, so setting the goal of four books this month feels reasonably ambitious without being unrealistic.

  1. I finished reading The Man I Never Met last week and I loved it. It’s a bit emotional, but very good IMO. I hope you enjoy it.
