Booking Ahead: November 2021

Booking Ahead is an opportunity to glance through my never-ending TBR list/pile and select a few potential reads for the coming month. If I’m not reading books I love talking about books I’d like to read, so this post is a perfect excuse to do just that.

November, and this month I’m selecting one definite read, which is…

‘Salem’s Lot by Stephen King – This is my current read. I decided to reread this as one of the characters features in the next of the Dark Tower books in my series reread and I wanted to remind myself of this story first as it’s a long time since I last read it.
So, once I’ve finished this it’s possible that some Dark Tower books may make an appearance in this month’s reading. This would be The Wind Through the Keyhole, which features Roland telling the group stories from his past as they shelter from a storm, and also Wolves of the Calla. It’s been a while since I picked up book 4 and I do want to get back to the series while the story is still fresh in my mind. I can remember enjoying this volume first time around.

Or, I may just see where the reading mood takes me once I’ve finished ‘Salem’s Lot. I seem to be doing that a lot recently, selecting whatever catches my eye at the conclusion of my latest read, so who knows what else may make an appearance over the coming month?

What are you hoping to read this month? Have you read of my picks, and if so what did you think?
See you again next month for another Booking Ahead.

    I’ve as yet to make the acquaintance of Mr King as I’ve long held the view that horror isn’t my thing. But I’d forgotten the Dark Tower series…

    I aim to read some short SF and nonfiction, along with a few novellas, this month, and have already placed a few prospective titles in a box to draw from. But then I get get distracted by the literary equivalent of ‘Oooh, look, a squirrel!’ and I’m sunk. So, lots of ‘booking ahead’ but not much evidence of acting on it! 🙂

      I get distracted easily too when it comes to choosing my next read and I feel like my TBR list is endless. So many books…

      I’d like to read more novella-length tales too, I enjoyed This Is How You Lose the Time War a while back. I usually seem to go for really long books but I fancy a change.
      Hope you have a good month of reading.
