October TBR List
I’ve tried not to put quite as many books on my TBR list this month so that I can read some spur of the moment ones without feeling guilty. I actually managed to read almost all of my TBR last month but there are a couple that I’ve carried over into October as I ran out of time.
The Shining by Stephen King
I re-read this every Halloween so when I saw that @MinDea on Litsy was hosting a #booktoscreen buddy read, I decided to join in. This is one of my all-time favourite books and I appreciate it more each year.
The Running Dream by Wendelin Van Draanen
I was looking for a book that would fit the ‘read a book about sports’ prompt for this year’s Read Harder Challenge and came across this one on Goodreads. It’s about a young girl with a passion for running who loses her leg in a car accident and must adjust to her new life
Notes from a Small Island by Bill Bryson
This is another choice for the Read Harder challenge (‘read a travel memoir) and one I’ve had on my TBR for years. I have a gorgeous Folio Society edition that’s been patiently waiting to be read.
In the Moon of Red Ponies by James Lee Burke
This is the third book in the Litsy whodunit group and one I hadn’t heard of but sounds great. It’s about a Texas attorney and former Texas Ranger called Billy Bob Holland and has some brilliant reviews.
A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
I started the Real-Time Reading on September 18th and it continues until 1st of November. I’m really enjoying re-reading this in the same time span in which the book’s events take place.
The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli.
I didn’t manage to read this last month but, as I’ve seen a couple more great reviews on Twitter, I definitely want to read it before my Goldsboro Limited Edition is released in November.
Mischling by Affinity Konar
I’ve had this on my wishlist for months since seeing so many good reviews on Litsy. I was lucky enough to win a paperback copy from Readers First last month so can’t wait to finally read it.
The Hanging Girl by Eileen Cook
This is another win from Readers First and I was drawn in by the blurb on this one – a YA mystery thriller about the disappearance of a popular girl in a small-town. Plus the cover is gorgeous!
The Tales of Beedle the Bard and Quidditch Through the Ages by J.K. Rowling
The Harry Potter Chapter a Day read along is still continuing over on Litsy and this month we aim to read and make notes about both of these books. So far, we’ve finished the seven Harry Potter books and The Cursed Child.
What’s on your TBR list this month?
