Week 1 of November 2017 To Be Read and To Be Watched



November is upon us! As such, I am planning to read all the things. In addition, I’d like to watch all the things as well. A plan is needed. Here is what I have come up with. The lovely Books and Lala was talking about this Scallywagathon readathon taking place this week. I tried to use it to motivate my reading.

So, here’s the announcement videos for this readathon. And, the map for the readathon is here as well. Hope you can join us!!

To be read

New Series

4. A book that involves death

Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard

I am craving some Victorian time fun. This novel involves zombie-like creatures, so I am hoping I don’t get too scarred for life. Moreover, it is a steampunk novel. I need to read more of those. Besides, it has a reference to death in the title.

8. over-hyped book

The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

Friends voted on this book for me to read this week. I am intimidated by its sequels (both of which I already have). However, bravery is needed and a little bit of trust. Maybe the book is engaging. From what I understand, there is a princess who runs away, and she is followed by two men. An assassin and a prince. Who is who, basically. It sounds like a neat premise. I doubt I’ll figure out who is who, really. But, that’s okay.

detour a. stand-alone novel

Tell The Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan

A retelling of A Tale of Two Cities, I believe, and it’ll probably be emotional because this is an OG love triangle for the ages. I don’t quite remember the details of the original novel. Hopefully this story isn’t too dependent on knowing the Dickens story in detail, because that would involve much Google research.

9. book on my owned-tbr


I’m going to be giving Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children a shot this week (I hope!). Also: this is kind of funny, but all my TBR books are books I own. So, that’s nice (and overwhelming)

To be watched

I am watching a couple of new shows: Supernatural, Stranger Things, and Vampire Diaries. In addition, I am still watching The 100, Jane the Virgin. 

When stressed, I try to remember that I have New Girl and That 70s Show as options, too. Lots of fun ahead!

  1. The 100, yayyyy! (I swear, I have tunnel vision with this show hahah.) I loooved The Kiss of Deception series- even though the last book was long (and I am generally scared of long books!) it didn’t bother me at all! I did not, however, love Tell the Wind and Fire. So. Boring. I hope you have better luck!
