November TBR

Posted 2nd November 2016 by Jordann @thebookbloglife in 2016, tbr / 2 Comments

This is probably going to be blasphemy coming from a book blogger, but reading isn’t going to be my number one priority this month. Yeah, you heard me, reading isn’t my only goal in my November TBR. I’m taking part in NaNoWriMo and I’m so excited, but having to write 1600 odd words each day may put a dampener on how much reading I get done. I’m hoping to plan my time effectively but who knows what will happen.

Hence the smaller November TBR. If I read all of these I will be more than impressed, if I don’t, I’m totally freaked out. I have taken a lot on.

Now onto the November TBR.

Broken Bits

Kit Foster thought a week in the woods would be the perfect way to recover from the family scandal that shattered her world. No reporters, no gossip and no drama. Then a helicopter dumps an injured man in her path.

Mick Harris is having a bad day. It was bad enough that he botched an op, but then he awakes beaten and left for dead in the middle of a forest. He is lucky to be alive, but now he is at the mercy of Kit- the only person who knows the route home.

During the time it takes to hike back to civilization, Kit and Mick become friends and explore their growing attraction. While the way out is hampered by bad memories and an assassin, they manage to grow close enough to attempt a real relationship.

However, that bliss is short-lived when Mick’s job again threatens Kit’s life and destroys their happiness. Can a second chance bring them back together?

I was sent this book by the author in exchange for an honest review. I’m actually currently reading it, like right now, my kindle is sat in my bag awaiting me to return. I’m really enjoying it, and I’m excited to see whether that changes as the book progresses. I will see. It’s intriguing, there’s a handsome guy and a suspicious helicopter, what more could you possibly need.

Primogénito: The Fuentes Legacy

“I wake up in the middle of the night sometimes and see him standing at the foot of the bed, staring at me. Some nights I don’t think he sleeps at all.”

Ashley Preston has a problem. Her husband Nick has fallen victim to a mysterious illness, alternating between bizarre physical symptoms for which doctors cannot determine a cause and alarming personality changes which have Ashley fearing not just for Nick’s health but for her own safety as well. Desperate to save her husband, she turns to the only person she believes can help her: Damian Fuentes.

Ashley knows Damian’s family has dabbled in some kind of dark magic over the years. She also knows that when Nick was ten years old, Damian’s grandfather performed a strange ritual on him. Convinced that this ritual is at the root of her husband’s problem, Ashley begs Damian to delve into the Fuentes family’s darkest secrets in search of a cure. But Damian has spent the past five years trying to distance himself from his family and his traumatic past. Helping Ashley will mean resurrecting the long-dead ghosts of his most disturbing memories. If he saves Nick he may very well lose himself.

Another book that an author has sent me for review. Black magic, mysterious illness caused by a crazy ritual, it sounds right up my street! I love the kind of books that delve into something I’ve never read but wanted to. I’m hoping it holds up to my expectations, and I love it as much as I want to.

A Dance with Dragons: Dreams and Dust

In the aftermath of a colossal battle, new threats are emerging from every direction.

Tyrion Lannister, having killed his father, and wrongfully accused of killing his nephew, King Joffrey, has escaped from King’s Landing with a price on his head.

To the north lies the great Wall of ice and stone – a structure only as strong as those guarding it. Eddard Stark’s bastard son Jon Snow has been elected 998th Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch. But Jon has enemies both inside and beyond the Wall.

And in the east Daenerys Targaryen struggles to hold a city built on dreams and dust

I’m aiming to have the whole of the Song of Ice and Fire series done by the end of the year, so I need to get through this bad boy this month. I know that with it’s second part it is one helluva book, so I’m not expecting a quick read. But it’s on my November TBR, so I have to try. Or DIE TRYING.

On that pleasant note, that’s my November TBR. This month’s blog posts might be a little sporadic. What with NaNoWriMo I’m just hoping to survive the month let alone surpass expectations and post regularly. We shall see what happens.

Let me know what you’re reading in November! Are you reading any of the books I am?
