The Struggle is Real/Nov To-Read
I have been having the hardest time sticking with a book and finishing it this month. I have started and stopped at least five. I'm hoping that I can just finish one!! That's all I want!!
Earlier this month I was reading The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova. My Goodreads Discord's book club pick for October. I was enjoying the story so much but I was intimidated by the size of this one. I might read it when I have a bit more free time.
I'm currently trying to read The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling. It is really cute and fits the spooky theme of the month, but there's just something missing and I haven't picked it up in a few days. I only have a few more days to finish D: I'm nervous!
I resumed The White Princess by Philippa Gregory yesterday and sprinted through 30 pages in like 30 minutes which is a feat for me. I really want to finish this one as soon as I can so I can go to the next one in the series. That one is The Constant Princess and it's about Katherine of Aragon's marriage to Arthur Tudor and then the start of her marriage to Henry VIII.
Since November is right around the corner, here are my to-read plans!
The Anomaly by Michael Rutger - I was halfway through this one earlier this year and I figured I should probably finish it.
The Lobotomist: A Maverick Medical Genius and His Tragic Quest to Rid the World of Mental Illness by Jack El-Hai - I've been wanting to read this one since I listened to the episodes of Last Podcast on the Left where they talked about lobotomies. The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America's Shining Women by Kate Moore - I have read about a third of this one. If I don't read The Lobotomist I will probably try to finish this one. The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood - I might grab this one from book of the month if I don't see anything else that is interesting. I have heard good things about this one.
