Not so spooky Spooktoberđź‘»// October TBR

Hi and howdy!!

We’re just going to ignore the fact that it’s October because how the Hell?? We’re also going to skip over the fact that we’re 1/3 of the way through the month already. Technically as I’m writing this, I’m 5 days into the month, but I’m being organised and not straying from the schedule I wrote up.

Normally in October I like to try and make an effort to read “spooky” books but I’m already gonna struggle juggling Uni and reading this month, so I’m not stressing about reading on-season books.

This TBR is going to look overly ambitious. I don’t expect to read all of these, I just want to have the choices there so I can pick what I’m in the mood for!



Crazy Stupid Bromance by Lyssa Kay Adams – I’m on a roll with this series and I’d love to be able to finish it (is the series even completed?) by the end of the year. I finished Undercover Bromance last night, so it’s time to move onto book number 3! These aren’t the totally best romances I’ve written, but I really love the overall premise of the bookclub and I feel like they’re getting better with each new book.

T.J Klune – I somehow got accepted for an ARC of Under the Whispering Door and The House in the Cerulean Sea!! I can’t believe it, I’m so excited to read these books. I started reading Under the Whispering Door yesterday while I was waiting to go into my first lecture. By “started reading” I mean I read about three pages and didn’t even finish the first chapter, but it’s a start.


The Grimrose Girls by Laura Pohl – I started reading this and was enjoying it but every time I went to read it … I fell asleep. It’s definitely not the book! I was just run ragged because I was staying at my dads and my younger siblings have more energy then should be allowed. From what I’ve read I’m liking the characters and the boarding school setting so I’m excited to see where this goes. I need to get back on this asap!

Our Violent Ends by Chloe Gong – When I woke up yesterday, I thought the most important thing about my day would be going to my first lecture. Then I got an email saying I was accepted for an ARC of one of my most anticipated releases of the year and starting Uni was suddenly the least exciting thing that happened that day.


I’ve low-key made a friend. I feel weird calling someone I’ve known for a total of like 5 hours a “friend” but it’s something. Anyways after a tutor session we went into town to explore all the bookshops there and despite being adament I wasn’t buying anything … I bought a collection of Mary Shelly Horror Stories. Look how pretty this book is, how could I say no!! And it was on sale!!

I’m not planning on reading this entire thing this year, but I would like to read Frankenstein.

Keeping on track of classics, I’d also like to get to The Great Gatsby, but that’s a low priority right now.

That’s my TBR for the month. Like I said, I’m writing this in advance, so hopefully by the time this post goes live, I’ve made a bit of progress on these books.

I’d love to hear your thoughts and feelings on and of these book, and also, what are you planning on reading this month? If you have any tips on how to handle school and reading for fun, I’d love to know :))
