Hey, book nerds! I'm here to recommend some books for your TBR list. But first, I have to share a story about how TikTok made me read it.
Do you like The Exorcist? Wish it had crazy twists like a Missouri backroad? Do you like books that make you question everything you just read? This is the book for you.
It's almost here. The big feast. And my bookish self started wondering about book characters during the holidays. Thankfully, I found this book tag to help ask and answer my wonderings.
I tend to be a seasonal reader. In summer, I read books that take place in warm places or by the ocean. I read Halloween and horror in October. Christmas, winter, and cold settings in Winter. You get the idea. I even read romance in February. So, why wouldn't I read Thanksgiving set books in November.
It's Saturday. And I just learned about something called Word Stacks. That's the official term for it at least. I have done colored stacks as posts for Bookstagram. But I really didn't think anyone else spelled words with their books. Then, I found out I'm not so much different than I thought. Not only is this a thing people do, it's a hashtag.
Here it is. The final list of my to be read in October. I have to admit to a little trepidation. But even if I only make it through the first list, that's still ten books. That puts me ten books closer to my reading goal of one hundred books for the year. And just to give you fair forewarning, yes. There are three Disney villain books on here. I don't want to hear anything about how they're not scary. If a stepmother sending her stepkid into the woods to be killed isn't scary to you, you're on a whole different level than me. Plus, I may have Disney on the brain with an upcoming trip being planned. And BooBash looks like so much fun. Anyway. I also have a few re-reads. Because I loved them so much I have to revisit with them. Even if they scared the hell out of me the first time I read them. So, without further ado, here's the last eleven books on my thirty one in thirty one challenge. I've included my book bingo card again, in case you missed it on the last two blogs.
I'm a sucker for a witchy cozy mystery. It doesn't have to be Halloween or Fall for me to curl up and read some magical, mystical sleuthing. And I figured I'm not alone. Plus, not everyone is into the scarier side of Halloween. So, I'm giving you six book series to put you in the Spoopy mood.
October's cozy mystery books release list continues on. This is the next ten. And yes, all of them are on my Amazon book wish list and my TBR. Because why not? If this is your first time here, welcome aboard, train wreck. Glad to have you here. If this isn't your first time here, I'm still glad to have you. Please like, comment, share, and subscribe. My goal is to have five hundred subscribers by the end of the year. As of writing this, that means I still need one hundred and thirty four more train wrecks to join us here. I think we can make that happen. As always, I will like the books and where you can buy them. When you use my links to buy, I may earn a small commission at no extra cost to you. This helps me buy more books to read and review. And coffee and wine for the rest of my time that isn't reading. So, thank you. All the books listed are being released in October and will be available from Amazon. Do you want me to start posting ThriftBooks links as well? Let me know and I'll see what I can do to make that happen. Now, on to the list.
Even though I use books as a form of socially acceptable escapism, I still like a little reality in my stories.
That means I like seeing characters that reflect the world around me. That means non Caucasian, all body types, differing genders and sexuality.
I'm also prone to reading horror, fantasy, and paranormal romance. You would think it would be easy to find diversity in those. Right?
Well, that's why I'm giving you this list.
As always, I will post a link where you can buy the books. If you use my links, I may earn a small commission, so thank you.
Not going to lie. I love Talk Like a Pirate Day. It was more fun when I worked in child care. Now, if I answer the phone in my pirate voice, I'm pretty sure I'm getting pulled into HR. Oh well. In the spirit of the day, instead of binge watching "Pirates of the Caribbean," I figured why not list some books to put us in a swash buckling mood.
As always, I will post a link where you can buy the book. If you use that link, I may earn a small commission. So, thank you.
