Welcome to November! How did we get here already?? Even as I write this, it is getting colder in my area, and it has been raining off and on the past few days. Snow is creeping down to lower and lower elevations, which means I don’t believe we’ll make it through November without seeing some ourselves. And that means it is perfect reading weather – curled up indoors under a cozy blanket with a lovely cup of pumpkin spice coffee.
I do not have a set TBR at this time, but rather I’m planning to wing it more this time than I did in October. However, I am participating in another month-long readathon. This month Mythothon is going on from November 1 – 30, and full details can be found at the link just above.

- Each book only counts for 1 square.
- Books read do NOT need to be mythology themed/related – they need only fit the prompt itself.
- A book counts as a book if it can be added on Goodreads – this includes novellas, graphic novels, audiobooks, etc.
- Be sure if you participate to link your sign-up posts on the main post (HERE) and post a wrap-up link at the end because prizes will be awarded at the end of November. (More details on that are available on the main blog post for the readathon)
