November To Be Read

November books

Did you know I actually read three out of the four books I showed you guys last month? It came quite as a surprise for me, ha. I deem this to be read post thing a success, which is why I decided to make one for this month as well.

At the moment I’m really struggling with finding time and motivation to read. When I open a book, I generally just feel blah. Nothing has been catching my interest lately, and I find myself choosing to do nothing on train rides rather than picking up a book. Hopefully this month’s picks will make me feel a bit more passionate about reading again.

Utopia by Thomas More

We’re reading Utopia in class, and it’s a bit dull to be honest, but the book is blissfully tiny, and I already know it’s going to feel so good to finish any book. It describes an island called Utopia, in which the “perfect” society is created. If you think a society where there is absolutely no personal freedom is perfect, in any case. Also interesting is that Utopia was originally written in Latin (while I obviously read it in an English translation).

The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson

So Mistborn and me did not work out. But. I love big fantasy books, and one night I got bored and picked this bad boy called The Well of Ascension up. Who knows, maybe my second venture into the brave world of Sanderson fiction is more successful?

Soulless by Gail Carriger

When I was thinking about my current reading habits, I realized that it might be a good idea to read something I know I’m going to like. I loved Soulless the first time I read it, and I’m looking forward to revisiting this lovely mash-up of steampunk and paranormal. Last time I read it, I never got onto the second book. Now I actually own the second book, so I hope the reread will compel me read the rest of the Parasol Protectorate series as well.

What are you reading this month?
