End of the Year TBR

We’re down on the last two months of 2021 and I want to share with you the books I plan to read this November and December. It’s an ambitious TBR and it’s time to catch up on some of the e-ARCs I received from publishers. Hopefully I will be able to read these books in time for the Goodreads Choice Awards. We’ll see if they deserve to be on the list.

Here are the novels I plan on finishing before the year ends. I am crossing my fingers they are amazing or will blow my mind.

The Undas Book Tag

In celebration of the Halloween Season in Filipino tradition, I will be doing The Undas Book Tag. Believe it or not, it’s my favorite season because nothing beats telling spooky stories in the dark and also honoring our dearly departed love ones. Sadly, my family won’t be able to go to Quezon Province to visit my maternal grandparents & uncle’s graves due to pandemic.  I would like to thank Kate of Your Tita Kate for creating this tag and also for tagging me! I am also accepting her bonus challenge to answer each questions only using the books I’ve read in 2021. 🙂

Without further ado, let’s begin:

What’s on my Scribd? (3)

Currently I am listening to The Wife Upstairs by Rachel Hawkins which is a book club pick of It Thrill-y Hurts hosted by Gerald @ Gerald the Bookworm. You can join the Facebook group for discussions.

Dark Romances That F*cked Up My Soul

Before I jumped into my post, I want to shoutout my good buddy Ari for pitching this idea (I swear she has more creative mojo than I do. I’m a lazy ass) and we both have similar taste in dark romance novels. Just a reminder to everyone who’s reading this post, all of these books are DARK ROMANCES/ ROMANCE THRILLERS. There are a lot of trigger warnings here such as abuse, kidnapping, sexual harassment/assault, drugs, violence, gore etc. (and other shits I don’t even want to mention). I just want to put it here because I don’t have any intention to hurt anyone or make you uncomfortable.

Self-awareness is a MUST prior reading these kinds of books. Enter at your own risk and all of these are fiction novels. I do not condone any of the things happened here and my morals are completely intact. Without further ado, here are the books / series that screwed my soul. Lmao.
