Do you ever have one of those moments where you start to read something or listen to an audiobook and suddenly if grabs you in ways it didn’t in the past?
Welcome to my middle of the month TBR changes!
Okay, so that might be a bit extreme. I don’t know that I am going to finish the TBR I had to begin with. I started another class so reading may end up on the back burner for the next few weeks since I’ll be doing a LOT of homework related reading.
Some books might carry over to next month anyway. That said, here’s what decided to grab my mood instead of the picks I already had:
The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater
As you may or may not know, Maggie Stiefvater is one of my favorite authors. I loved the Shiver trilogy when I read it years ago. I’m not sure how I would feel about it now but I also loved reading The Scorpio Races as well as her to Faerie books (sorry the name of them escapes me at the moment…Lament is the title of one of them, I believe.) That said, I never got around to reading the Raven Cycle when it first came out.
It took me a long time before I ever picked the first one up. When I did, I read the first one, which was a while ago, I enjoyed it but I think I wasn’t in the mood for that type of story.
A few months ago I decided I’d listen to it on audible and several months after that I find myself picking up series again suddenly desperate for more of the story. I listed out books 2-3 since those are the ones I read this month and haven’t been able to put down.
- The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater
- Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
- The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater
Also, in addition to reading the Raven Cycle, I’ve been reading some of the books I planned to read with the addition of these books. As I said, some are ones that I planned to read but also some are not.
- Pumpkinheads by Rainbow Rowell and Faith Erin Hicks
- Teen Titans: Raven by Kami Garcia
- An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson
Since October is almost over, and I just started my class, I will probably have to move some of the planned books further down the TBR pile. You will probably not see another TBR pile from me until after January, but hopefully, I will be able to share my thoughts on some of the books I’ve promised to review and some that I have been hoping to review as well.
Let me know what your reading and if you’ve had changes to your TBR pile that came out of nowhere!
