November 2021 TBR & Goals

November TBR

You Are Not Your Own: Belonging to God in an Inhuman World

Finish This In-Progress Book: You Are Not Your Own by Alan Noble

For My Children’s Lit Class: 5 picture books aimed at underserved populations (I’m focusing on children experiencing homelessness for this one), 3 historical fiction books, 5 sci-fi/fantasy books, and 3 from the ALA’s list of frequently challenged children’s books (challenged means someone tries to have it removed from a library),

For Myself: IF (and note that it is an all-caps ‘if’) I have time, read Flower Crowns and Fearsome Things by Amanda Lovelace and Absolutely Truly by Heather Vogel Fredricks

Other November Goals

  • Finish program plan website for children’s lit class
  • Finish 2 very large assignments for my research class, in addition to the smaller weekly assignments
  • Enjoy a week off of work for Thanksgiving (and catching up on those long-term assignments)
  • Fill out my Christmas planning spreadsheet and start ordering gifts which will take a while to be delivered
  • Wrap up the staff pumpkin decorating contest at work
  • Bake dessert for my family on Thanksgiving
  • Keep up with all the other little things that don’t really warrant a point of their own but still need to get done by a certain time or within a reasonable timeframe

There are a couple different reading themes/challenges going on in the blogosphere this month. The most popular that I know of are Nonfiction November and Novellas in November, although I have yet to see a linkup or headquarters for either. Cathy of 746 Books shared some recommendations for finding novellas to read here. I hope that next year, when I am done with grad school, I will participate in at least one of these challenges! This year, though, I just don’t have the time or brain space.

What are you working on this month?

Until the next chapter,

  1. Sounds like you have a fun November ahead of you! 😁 I totally need a Christmas planning spreadsheet… lol! I’m aiming to have all my Christmas shopping AND wrapping done by the end of November, so I can enjoy the look of wrapped presents under the little tree in my home for all of December! 🎄
