November 2020 TBR + 1000 Doors Readathon!

It's that time of the month again so I'm here to plan out my November TBR plus mention the readathon I'll be taking part in this month. I had a great reading month in October and I read some great books as well as a ton that really put me in the Halloween/Autumn mood. I've tried to include a few books that still have a darker vibe to them as it is still autumn and I am still leaning towards those types of books.

I'm only taking part in one readathon this month although there were a few that I was interested in. I really wanted to do the next round of Believathon hosted by How To Train Your Gavin on booktube which is a month long middle grade readathon but I just don't own any middle grades physically and I didn't want to have to soley read them through scribd so I'm putting this off until the next round. I was also interested in the next rounds of Musical-A-Thon and the Gilmore Girls Readathon but having had a look at the prompts I couldn't really fit them to match my TBR without adding another 8 books to it which is a real shame. The readathon I will be participating in is the 1000 Doors Readathon which I'll talk a bit more about further down.

I'm also participating in the The Winternight Trilogy Readalong which is also hosted by Meg With Books and you can find the announcement video here and can check out the twitter page here. We're reading the first book The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden in November and then the second and third books in December and January. I've been looking for an excuse to start this series so I was so happy when I saw that a readalong was happening and immediately knew I had to join in.

I'm continuing on with reading the The Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater and I'm now on to the second book Linger. I didn't love the first book, I gave it three stars, but I own the entire series so I do want to read all of them before probably unhauling. I'm also finally reading Horrid by Katrina Leno after months of talking about it! I'm having to bump Shadowsea by Peter Bunzl over to November as I didn't manage to get to it in October so I'll definitely be prioritising it. My classic for the month is going to be Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen and my non-fiction read is going to be I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai both of which I'm really excited to get to.

Physical Books

As soon as megwithbooks announced she was co-hosting this readathon I knew I had to participate. This readathon is a month long if you want more time to complete it but the main part is going to be from the 1st until the 8th of November. The concept is so unique and I'm really excited to see what books I'll be reading for it. You see you can't really plan your TBR for this because this is a choose your own adventure type of readathon. On November 1st we'll be able to choose our first prompt from a selection of doors and go away and read that book. Once you've finished, you go back to the video and choose your next door and prompt based on what you thought about the book you've just read. There are five layers so five prompts overall. Basically everyone's experience is going to be different and because of how you get each prompt you can't really do any planning!
I just loved the concept! I think it sounds super fun and interactive and I can't wait for the first of November to arrive. If you'd like to participate or check out the announcement video, I've linked it in the heading above.
So that's what my November TBR is looking like at the minute! A lot of these are books are dependent on time and whether or not I can fit them into the prompts I get but hopefully I'll be able to get through most of them. What are you planning on reading in November? Are you participating in any readathons? Let me know in the comments and Happy Reading!

  1. I just recently read Horrid. It's an interesting one with a unique ending. I'll be curious what you think of that one! Happy reading!
