Hello and welcome to my tentative return and Thanksgiving TBR!
Since school has been such a whirlwind this year, I’ve sadly only been averaging 1-2 books a month (bye-bye Goodreads goal). But that’s okay! As much as I love reading, sometimes my physics homework does have to come first.
However, since I have this next week off for Thanksgiving, and some extra time for a blog post, I thought I’d share some books I plan to read this week. Whether or not I actually get to them is the fun part of this mystery.

Say You’ll Remember Me by Katie McGarry
This has been on the top of my TBR for months now, because, if you somehow didn’t know this from my constant gushing about her on this site, Katie McGarry is one of my favorite contemporary authors.
Her characters always suck me straight in and make my heart hurt for them, and I can safely say this one is no different! I’m about halfway through Say You’ll Remember Me and am already obsessed.
The Darkest Star by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Here’s the thing: I haven’t read a Jennifer L. Armentrout book in years. Since she finished the Obsidian series, actually. And while I was super sad to say goodbye to that story, and Kat and Damon, I was satisfied with the ending.
And THEN I see that she’s writing a spin-off series?? Set in the same world??? But like a few years in the future with a mysterious character from the original series???? Count. Me. In. I already read the sample, I already can’t wait to dive in. I love the way this woman writes romance.
(Plus, who knows? Maybe we’ll get a sneak peak on how Kat and Damon are doing.)
I recommend picking up an Armentrout book if you’re interested in reading an intriguing paranormal romance this holiday season. I mean, even that cover looks vaguely festive.
You Were Here by Cori McCarthy
I actually got this book from the library a month ago and started reading (and enjoying) it, but had to put it down to finish a book for my book club and for school.
I’m already about halfway through, so hopefully I can knock the rest out this week! It’s honestly been really good so far, and it’s one of those contemporaries that keeps you guessing. I honestly have no clue where McCarthy is going to take me and while I’m a little terrified, I’m also pretty excited, too.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling
Yes, yes, I have yet to finish the Harry Potter books. But I’ve seen all the movies!
And that totally counts…right?
Bottom line is, it’s time for me to finally finish this series, so hopefully I can at least make some progress on the sixth one. I really am loving the series so far! But seven books can be daunting, so I’m taking my time.
Other than those, I’m trying to keep my options open. When it comes to me, following TBRs has never been a strong suit, so the more open I leave it, the better.
There are also a few books I’m waiting on from the library, so if those come in early, who knows? Maybe they’ll jump the line.
What books are you planning on picking up this week (whether you celebrate Thanksgiving or not)? How do you usually spend this week off, if you have it? Have you read any of the books on my list? Tell me in the comments! 🙂
