Once again I think I am setting a pretty ambitious TBR. I have my book club book, plus a buddy read, a monthly reading challenge, and a readathon that I plan on participating in. This month I will be staying at home so hopefully it will be a little more doable. Ok lets get to what y’all are here for, the books.
As I am sure y’all know by now I participate in an online book club that Zuky from BookBum created. Every month Zuky picks a theme and then you can choose whatever book you want to read that fits the theme. For more info and to join in check out the Goodreads Page.
HORRORWEEN Read a horror book for the month of Halloween!
So obviously the first thing that comes to mind is Stephen King. I own a couple of his books that I haven’t read yet but I am saving those so I had to figure out something else. I browsed through Goodreads Best Horror list and saw that two of the books I had already planned on reading for something else was on the list so that was perfect. The two books that will work for this prompt are:
In September I participated in Kathy’s Sequel September Challenge and didn’t do as well as I hoped. This month I am participating in OWNtober. The premise for this reading challenge is to read books you already own. Pretty much all of the books I am going to mention in this post are books that I own most of which will work for other challenges so I will talk about them there but the few books that I just hope to read on top of everything else I plan to read are:
Kayla from Books and Lala on YouTube is hosting the spookathon again this year and I decided to participate this time. This year the spookathon runs from October 15 – October 21 and there are 5 challenges to go along with it. Also you are allowed to double up on prompts so if I don’t manage to read every book I can use the books that I did read for another prompt if they fit.
read a thriller
You only need to read one book but I couldn’t decide which one of these I wanted to read so I just added all three of them to my TBR for this month.
read a book with purple on the cover
Also if for some reason I don’t get to Escaping from Houdini before this readathon starts that can count for this prompt as well
read a book not set in the current time period
One of my picks for the book club actually worked for this prompt so that helped.
read a book with a spooky word in the title
This is another book that could work for the purple on the cover prompt.
read a book with pictures
I am pretty sure this is the only book I own that has pictures in it which is a good thing because I have been meaning to read it since my husband got it for me last year.
ARCs/Review Copies I NEED To Read
I have other ARCs and review copies but these are the 4 I need to get to ASAP!!
As always if Noriko and Lili host their 24 hour readathon at the end of the month I will be trying to participate in that as well. So these are my plans for October. Can I do it? I sure hope so but I am kind of doubting I will because most of these books aren’t short. Have you read any of the books I mentioned? What are you planning to read this month?
