All year, I swore that I would catch up on all of my fall ARCs by September 30th so that October could be totally dedicated to mood reading, yet here we are, and… well, that didn’t happen.
So, a few plans for this month are:
- OWNtober — reading books from my backlist that I purchased myself before this month
- The IT readalong that Kathy and I are co-hosting. Feel free to join us and use the hashtag #WeAllReadDownHere on twitter and instagram if you do! ♥
- The CERTAIN DARK THINGS readalong I’m hosting on twitter from October 7th to 11th (details here). Feel free to join in (the hashtag is #CertainDarkThingsBR), and let me know if you’d like to join the group chat!
- To read as many spooky things as possible!
I’m also trying something new: instead of clicking the titles for Goodreads links, you can view a Goodreads shelf of my entire month’s TBR here!
Now, on to my (incredibly oversized and unrealistic) TBR!
? = POC rep
? = LGBTQ+ rep
? = OWNtober
? = spooky reads
(keep in mind that I haven’t read these yet, so I may miss the rep on some titles—if you see anything I missed, please let me know!)
