Ugh how I have missed you! I know, I know. This is entirely my doing. But hey, life happens. With the state of the world lately, now more than ever, I have noticed so many people have been going on unplanned hiatuses and have been struggling with mental health. I feel so much better knowing that in the bookish community, we all continue to love and support each other through the bad times and the good.
That said, I hope to finish out the year strong on my blog and continue actually doing the things I love: reading and writing.
Okay now the mushy part is over….onto the TBR!
It shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that October is my favorite month, therefore, I refuse to ignore the things that make me happy. That means I’ll actually be blogging normally again (yes, for real this time) and reading plenty.
Here we go:
Cracked Up to Be by Courtney Summers.
This light-academia mystery follows Parker Fadley, the school’s Little Miss Perfect who made a horrible mistake that could cost her everything if anyone ever found out what she had done. Parker, of course, will do anything to keep her reputation and secret safe.
The Haunting of Hill Hosue by Shirley Jackson.
A true horror classic. This follows the four stories of the individuals who plan to explore the infamous Hill House and each of their unique experiences within it.
People Like Her by Ellery Lloyd.
Emmy Jackson is the influencer who prides herself on the truth, telling it, living it, and sharing it with the world….her version of it, of course. To one of her most obsessive followers, Emmy isn’t quite so clever.
The Nightmare Before Christmas: Zero’s Journey by DJ Milky
I’m so excited about this manga! My boyfriend bought it for me on one of our first dates because he loves manga, and I had said I wanted to start reading it. In this spinoff of the classic tale, Zero gets lost and needs to gain the help of the residents of Christmas Town to find his way home. Jack, missing his best friend, puts all Halloween plans on hold until Zero is found, but will they find each other before the holidays?
Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie.
Words can’t describe how excited I am for this!!!! First off, I want to thank Literati for partnering with me and gifting me this book. Home Fire is Malala’s book club pick of the month of October, so you just KNOW it’s bound to be a good one. This book is described as a suspenseful and emotional story of an immigrant family forced to choose between love and loyalty. I want to go into this knowing as little as possible, so that is all I’m going off of but it sounds amazing!
Because I’m so bad at keeping to my TBRs, I figure this should be good enough to guide my month.
Thanks y’all! Happy reading!
