Another month, another TBR ~
I can’t believe it’s already October! It feels like September flew by, but then again, it feels like every other month this year did, too! Before the list, there are 3 things I’d like to say:
1) I didn’t finish my September TBR, so I’m trying something new for a little while: every month, when I don’t finish the books on that month’s TBR, I’ll be rolling them over to the next month’s. Because of that, my October TBR is a bit of a doozy, but I’m really excited about my lineup! (If this doesn’t go well for me, we’ll pretend we never had this discussion by the time November rolls around, yeah?)
2) I had a goal in September to read a book per day and it really helped me stay on track and get a lot done, so I’ve decided to set an October goal as well! Instead of a book per day, my goal for October is to read 100 pages per day.
3) I’m still working on Bex’s TBR jar she curated for me! I only picked up one book from the jar in September, unfortunately, but I loved the selection so much that I decided, instead of making a fall TBR this year, I’m just going to get through as many of those as possible between now and the start of Winter. If you’d like to see the selection Bex chose for me, check my September TBR post (just scroll down)!
(Some of these are in progress, others haven’t been started yet.)
- Chasing Ghosts by Marc Hartzman — IN PROGRESS
- Summer Sons by Lee Mandelo
- Horseman by Christina Henry
- Vespertine by Margaret Rogerson
- The Heart Principle by Helen Hoang
October’s New Picks:
And here are the books I’m adding to my TBR for the month!
- Peel Back and See by Mike Thorn: A collection of short stories from a very beloved horror author!
- In Darkness, Delight: Fear the Future edited by Andrew Lennon & Evans Light: Another horror anthology, though this one has a sci-fi twist. 👽
- Body Shocks edited by Ellen Datlow: “Holy shit, Destiny, did you pick enough horror anthologies?”
- Comfort Me With Apples by Catherynne M. Valente: This horror/thriller novella will be my intro to Valente’s work!
- The Woods Are Always Watching by Stephanie Perkins: I don’t care what anyone says, I had fun with her last horror book and I’m hyped for this one.
- Blister by Jeff Strand: Group read! I’ve only read one short story by Jeff Strand so far, but adored it.
- The Last House on Needless Street by Catriona Ward: I’ve heard this one is REALLY thrilling, so I’ve been avoiding spoilers like the plague. Another group read!
- Empire of the Vampire by Jay Kristoff: The whole marketing pitch was “make vampires scary again” so I bet this is on a lot of October TBRs!
What are you reading in October?
