Sci-Fi Month: November TBR

Greetings, readers! Those of you that have been around here for awhile know that I don’t normally do a strict monthly TBR (to be read). While I do have an idea of what I am hoping to get to based on review request responsibilities, I tend to leave things rather open for mood reading. I know myself and considering I slump it up at least 5 days out of the month, I don’t want to feel stressed out for not reading so I avoid TBRs.

But for Sci-fi month I have a number of science fiction books from my owned TBR stack that I have buddy reads scheduled for and I am so excited!

November 2018 TBR

In case you had an any doubt about my obsession with Battlestar Galactica, yes. That is a painting that I did of Starbuck’s mandala and it hangs in my living room. Now that we got that out of the way…

  1. Through the Hostage by J.C. Steel
  2. Warcross by Marie Lu  |  Buddy read with Becca!
  3. Pitch Dark by Courtney Alameda
  4. This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada  |  Buddy read with Becca!
  5. This Cruel Design by Emily Suvada  |  Buddy read with Becca!
  6. Asylum by Madeline Roux  |  Buddy read with Destiny! (not sci-fi)
  7. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo  |  Buddy read with Sam! (not sci-fi, eBook)
  8. The Sorrows by Jonathan Janz (eARC)

Yes, 50% of my reading this month is with Becca and I see no problem with that! We also have Illuminae on our list but I am thinking we won’t be able to get to that one this month.

Have you read any of these books? Are any on your TBR? Share your thoughts in the comments below!

  1. I totally read GREETINGS READERS in a very masculine voice.

    ANYWAYS. Six of Crows is AMAZING. I hope you and Sam will enjoy it! You two know where to find me lurking if necessary… haha. I have plans to read Warcross, but I highly doubt I’ll get to it since that’s what I always say. “Oh, I’ll get to it this month.” It’s becoming an issue.

  2. This is such a good TBR! So many good ones. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on Warcross! I loved it a lot when I read it, but it’s one of those books where I can’t help but wonder if I would love it as much now that I tend to be a little less… this is gonna sound harsh, but “easily impressed” by ARCs? But I still think I’d give it at least 4 stars because it was so much fun and I loved the gaming rep in it. I also liked Pitch Dark a lot so I’m excited to hear your thoughts on it, too! And I had a blast buddy reading Asylum with you. ♥

    1. I am really excited to get to Warcross, gaming rep is my LIFE! I know what you mean though, I have become incredibly critical over the last few months when it comes to books and I am kind of hard to impress in general. I don’t give many 5 stars but to me that means when I read one it is more special to me! I started Pitch Dark last night and am LOVING IT so far, thanks so much for that rec!

  3. Ahhh, I am so excited for you to read both This Mortal Coil and This Cruel Design on here. I only read the first book so far, haven’t had the chance to get to the second one yet, but I can’t wait. I love the first one SO much. I hope you’ll enjoy them, will be looking forward to your thoughts! 🙂

      1. AHTHIS MAKES ME SO HAPPY! I know, right? People need to be screaming about this book more, it’s incredible. I hope you’ll love this cruel design, I can’t wait to read it 😀

  4. Oooh I hope you have fun buddy reading with your friend! I really wanna read Warcross soon but I hate waiting for a book to be released, so I’ll start only after the entire series has been published. Six of Crows was a lot of fun to read–it’s an excellent fantasy heist novel and I hope you love it as much as I did ❤

      1. Oh yeah, I remember seeing you tweet about it 😄 It’s a lucky thing you like reading on your phone, I still prefer the physical form. One blogger says the kindle is kinder on the eyes…so I’m eyeing one, too, haha

    1. Norrie. NORRIE. You should drop everything and read This Mortal Coil. I finished it yesterday and absolutely was blown away with it; and our buddy read has turned into a marathon of the novella + book 2 now. It’s like the Week of Suvada in my world.


  5. I really want to read Six of Crows! Let me know how it is. Can’t wait to read your review. Right now I am reading My MacArthur (just released indie)–historical fiction. I love it so far!
