November 2021 TBR

Hello bookworms!! Welcome to the November 2021 TBR post. Now, I know that it’s unusual for me to write a TBR. You know, especially because I never stick to them… (Remember in March when I wrote a TBR for Middle Grade March and then only read smutty romance on Kindle Unlimited? No? Oh… me neither… πŸ˜³πŸ‘€)

Well, Gintare, who used to run the magical readathon based on the HP exams was back in September with a readathon based on her very own world: Orilium. And I… was off doing my own thing because I was not on top of reading, blog hopping, or booktube. So, I didn’t even realise it was a thing until the end of September. Which is why… *drum roll*… I’m doing a November TBR.

Yes, I am two months late, but joining the Orilium bandwagon. And for inspiration for my character and path that I am taking, I’m going back to my second D&D character (Iseult) and essentially making her my Orilium person. The beauty of that is that I know exactly what she would do in each of the scenarios.

But, before we get too far down that path, let’s look at the prompts for the September section of the Orilium readathon.

Orilium Readathon

So, there are two parts to the first stage of the Orilium readathon. There’s the character creation (technically you have until April 2022 to do this, but I want to tick it off). And there’s The Novice Path, which is the part that was just for September. Or November if you’re behind on life like me.

I have only put the options for the character creation that I intend of completing (there are others). And of The Novice Path, you technically only have to complete two prompts, but we’ll see how many I can shoehorn into my reading.

Character / Path

Character Wildling: a book largely set in a forest or outside War β€” Laura Thalassa War by Laura Thalassa
Character Irtheria: a book that features fae or elven creatures A Deal with the Elf King β€” Elise Kova A Deal with the Elf King by Elise Kova

Path Orilium Academy Arc: book with a school setting Fence: Disarmed β€” Sarah Rees Brennan Fence Disarmed by Sarah Rees Brennan

The beauty with most of these prompts is that they are so broad I could almost substitute anything in for them if I need to. So, we’ll see how far I get through them!!
