I am so sorry for my unexpected hiatus, I traveled to Jamaica and then to New Brunswick, and on top of all of this I am in the process of moving apartments. I hope to be back on schedule now!
I am currently reading The Shining and am loving it. My TBR this month is a little different than my usual because I have included a couple books I need to have read in order to gift them for Christmas, a collection of poems to help me get through some tough times, and self-help books to help me arrange my new years resolutions!
I am aiming to have these all read for December, but with school and final exams approaching I may have to extend my TBR.
A Little Life is definitely going to take me some time to finish, and I am also trying to get through an ebook so September’s TBR is slowing me down
HOWEVER, after careful consideration of your suggestions I have picked some spooky halloween reads for this month!
The Shining by Stephen King – I have been dying to read this book, but I wanted to save it for October!
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley – I am a little embarrassed to say I have never read this yet, but it fits right into my Halloween theme!
The Shack by William Paul Young – I have chosen this read for now (mostly because I need to finish it so my mom can have it), but it doesn’t exactly fit with my theme so I may change my mind when I get around to it.
Because I still have some September reads to clue up I have chosen only three books besides for my TBR – hopefully I get to read more.
Hard to believe it is almost October, but here we are. I decided for the month of October I wanted to have a TBR list that consisted of scary, thrilling, and/or strange reads, however the problem is I have so many options.
I am currently reading A Little Life, but I was recently contacted to review a novel for someone (I’m moving up in the book world!!!) so it is slowing me down a bit and I anticipate I will have to carry over reading A Little Life at least in the first week of October.
To keep my TBR realistic with my busy workload in school, I am hoping you guys can recommend what three books I should make time for during October.
August was dedicated to reading IT by Stephen King even though I managed to get a couple more quick reads in before the month was over. For September, I am going to push my limits and try to conquer a few “shorter” reads and to at least get started with A Little Life. A few of these on my September TBR are a part of my 2017 must-reads I posted about earlier: you can read about that here
On this months TBR list is:
Fahrenheit 451 – Ray Bradbury
– This is a book I have been wanting to read since highschool, I had the option to read this or The Hobbit for an English course and I chose The Hobbit. About 4 years later I am finally getting around to this read.
The Giver – Lois Lowry
– I have seen this read all over my social media feeds and one of my friends is reading it now. I hope it is worth all the hype!
Everything I Never Told You – Celeste Ng
– I snagged this book at a book fair for 2 dollars! I had no idea what this book was about or if it would be worth the read, but after buying it I started to see it pop up on my social media feeds which made me excited to read it!
Tuesdays with Morrie – Mitch Albom
– I have been wanting to read this book forever, but I wanted to wait until I had enough free time to really take my time and enjoy it. The concept is similar to the book The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch which I really enjoyed. Being 21 and just finishing university I really appreciate hearing about life experiences and advice from others. I will probably start this month with this read!
A Little Life – Hanya Yanagihara
– This book has been everywhere! I have only seen praise and excitement for this read. It is a bit longer of a book so I am not expecting to have it finished by the end of the month, but I am hoping to be well into it by then.
The Ocean at the End of the Lane – Neil Gaiman (not pictured ebook)*
– I have already started this one, but I only really use my ereader when I am doing cardio at the gym so ebooks take me a little longer to finish. I am already really enjoying this read I love the suspense and creative characters so far.
