Hey guys, how you doin’?
Today I’m here with my unrealistic October TBR. As I’ve said before, I’m a big mood reader and except for the ARCs here, there’s no garantee I’ll actually get to any of these books. But let’s make a list anyways cause lying to ourselves is fun!
Here are the books I feel like picking up this month:
What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli & Adam Silvera
Look who’s back, back again. I know, I know, I should’ve read this ARC already, but I was scared. I love Becky and Adam so the idea of possibly being disappointed by this book is terrifying, even though I have no particular reason to think I’ll be let down by it in any way. Go figure. But hey, at least I finally picked this up and read a couple pages and I’m enjoying it so far. It comes out in October, 9.
A Very Large Expanse of Sea by Tahereh Mafi
Another repeat from last month’s tbr. But in my defence, I wasn’t expecting to get this ARC so my mood didn’t have time to ajust to the idea of reading it. Whoa, that was a lame excuse haha. Regardless, I’ll be picking this up right after I’m done with What If It’s Us, since I’ve been trying to focus on one book at a time lately. It comes out in October, 16.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter #2) by J.K. Rowling
Another repeat from September. Not only I mostly failed my last tbr, but I’m also super late with my Harry Potter reread now. Fantastic Beasts 2 comes out in the middle of November and I haven’t even gotten to book 2 yet. I’m clearly a lost cause.
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
I finally read Fangirl last month, so of course it got me super pumped to pick this up right away. Unfortunately, “right away” couldn’t happen because college and ARCs got in the way, but this month I will definitely make the time to have more Simon and Baz in my life. You guys hyped me so it’d better be awesome!
The Lost Sisters by (The Folk of the Air #1.5) Holly Black
I read The Cruel Prince in January and I really loved it, hence the reason The Wicked King is currently my most anticipated book of all. Obviously I’m couldn’t miss this novella, even if it’s about one of the characters I disliked the most. Also let’s not forget novellas are great for our reading challenges haha Just saying.
The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw
Y’all talk so much about Halloween that now I’m in the vibe for spooky stuff too. My mood is feeling like going for some witchy reads, so I’m adding this book cause of that and cause it seems creepy. I love witch stories, but I don’t own many books of that kind for some reason, so I thought I’d at least read more of the ones I have.
Demonglass (Hex Hall #2) by Rachel Hawkins
On the same witchy vibe I mentioned, I decided to include this book here. I reread book one last year and I enjoyed it, so now that I own the whole triology I realized I should take advantaged of the whole Halloweeny mood to continue on with it.
The Dead Zone by Stephen King
This is my first Stephen King. A little context, I’m super curious about his writing (since people won’t shut up about it), but I’m terrified of his books. I’m a big chicken and I just can’t with horror. Some of King‘s books I won’t even touch (au revoir freaky monster clown), but this one is a singular case. I loved the The Dead Zone tv series adaptation, and I know it’s probably not at all similar to the book, but I think this is something I could read without being traumatized for life.
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
So I don’t usually read classics, not because I don’t think I’ll like them, but because my YA Fantasy tbr is too big for me to have time for other books. But I have a bunch of classics that I’m actually interested in, and Barnes & Noble made it easier for me to want them with their beautiful collectible editions. I have Dracula too, but I decided to add only Frankenstein to this tbr, since Kiersten White‘s retelling The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein recently came out and I don’t want to pick it up before reading the original (also this one is a lot shorter than Dracula, and reading a classic in english when that’s not my native language is a little daunting).
So, have you read any of this books? What’s on your October tbr?
