At the beginning of October, I decided to start reading books more. I made a plan to read certain books by the end of the month. Did I achieve that goal. Hell no! Last month I read 3 (and a half) books. I did plan on reading The Shining and Outlander, but everything else I picked up on a whim.
Due to the fact that I bought a big haul of books from Book Outlet that recently came in, I’m going to be a little more strict about which books I plan on reading. At the same time, I don’t want to read a bunch of books in a row from the same genre, considering a lot of my books from Book Outlet were young adult fantasy. I’ve also thrown in other types of books, like the genre called “I can’t believe I haven’t read this yet.”
The first book for November that I plan on reading is a Star Wars book – Heir to the Empire by Timothy Zahn. This is the first book in the Thrawn Trilogy. I’m actually almost done with it, since this is the half book I read in October and I’ve been reading it pretty religiously over the past few days. I was told this was a good starting point for the Star Wars expanded universe. Unfortunately, this book and many others are no longer considered canon since Disney acquired Lucas Films. It’s still a good story anyway and takes place 5 years after the end of Return of the Jedi.
- Heir to the Empire – Timothy Zahn (to be finished today!)
- City of Bones – Cassandra Clare
- Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – Douglas Adams
- Fangirl – Rainbow Rowell
- Six of Crows – Leigh Bardugo
I figured since I’m almost done with my first book early, I would aspire to read one more book than I did last month. I’m trying to bust up the Young Adult genre with some Sci-fi. City of Bones and Fangirl were from Book Outlet, Six of Crows from Books a Million, and Hitchhiker’s Guide I ordered from Amazon for 20 cents but it hasn’t come in yet.
What books do you plan to read in November?
