November TBR

It’s that time of the month again when I look at the books I want to read over the coming month – some months I stick to my list more than others but I do like to start the month with some idea of what I might be reading! 3 books seems to working well as a TBR for me at the moment so I’ll stick to that for November as well.

The Kingdoms by Natasha Pulley

Joe Tournier has a bad case of amnesia. His first memory is of stepping off a train in the nineteenth-century French colony of England. The only clue Joe has about his identity is a century-old postcard of a Scottish lighthouse that arrives in London the same month he does. Written in illegal English-instead of French-the postcard is signed only with the letter “M,” but Joe is certain whoever wrote it knows him far better than he currently knows himself, and he’s determined to find the writer. The search for M, though, will drive Joe from French-ruled London to rebel-owned Scotland and finally onto the battle ships of a lost empire’s Royal Navy. In the process, Joe will remake history, and himself.

I’m so excited to have been sent an early copy of this book. I have loved all of Natasha Pulley’s previous books and I’m looking forward to getting lost in this one too. Thank you so much to Bloomsbury for sending me a copy.

Hard Time by Jodi Taylor

A time slip in Versailles, problems in the Ice Age and illegal time travellers in need of rescue. Must be a job for the Time Police.

Luke, Jane and Matthew are back and ready to cause havoc – inadvertently or otherwise – in their latest adventures.

I thoroughly enjoyed Doing Time, the first book in this series, an off the wall time travel romp that was a spin off from the equally bizarre but wonderful Chronicles of St Mary’s series. Hard Time is the second outing for Team Weird and I have high hopes that it will be just as much fun as the first.

Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine

Ruthless and supremely powerful, the Great Library is now a presence in every major city, governing the flow of knowledge to the masses. Alchemy allows the Library to deliver the content of the greatest works of history instantly—but the personal ownership of books is expressly forbidden.

Jess Brightwell believes in the value of the Library, but the majority of his knowledge comes from illegal books obtained by his family, who are involved in the thriving black market. Jess has been sent to be his family’s spy, but his loyalties are tested in the final months of his training to enter the Library’s service.

When his friend inadvertently commits heresy by creating a device that could change the world, Jess discovers that those who control the Great Library believe that knowledge is more valuable than any human life—and soon both heretics and books will burn…

This is a series I’ve been meaning to start for ages so I’ve decided to go ahead and put it on my TBR this month to give me a push into starting it. I loved Honor Among Thieves that she co-authored with Ann Aguirre (really must finish that series as well). Also I do love a good library story!
