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… 😳👀)
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.
November 2021 TBR
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
Book and author
|Character||Wildling: a book largely set in a forest or outside||War — Laura Thalassa|
|Character||Irtheria: a book that features fae or elven creatures||A Deal with the Elf King — Elise Kova|
|Character||Earthling: a book with elemental magic or an element word (air, earth, fire, water) in the book or series title||Famine — Laura Thalassa|
|Path||The Novice Path entrance: a book with a a map||Of Princes and Promises — Sandhya Menon|
|Path||Ashthorn Tree: a book that keeps tempting you (top of your TBR)||Aurora Burning — Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff|
|Path||The Mist of Solitude: a standalone||The Scorpio Races — Maggie Stiefvater|
|Path||Ruin of the Skye: a book featuring ghosts, haunted house or other supernatural beings||Death — Laura Thalassa|
|Path||Obsidian Falls: a thriller or mystery||Game On — Janet Evanovich|
|Path||Tower of Rumination: a 5 star prediction||Aurora’s End — Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff|
|Path||Orilium Academy Arc: book with a school setting||Fence: Disarmed — 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!!
What are you planning to read in November?
