I was supposed to do Preptober this month for NaNoWriMo but with this TBR I’m not so sure there will be time…
Last month was efficient. I got almost all my ARC’s done and based on my TBR for September I read all but 1 book and I’m mid-way through another. I finished 5 out of 8 books. Lastly, I started one which was all the TBR requested I do. That was Gone With The Wind. I have made serious progress on that but I don’t think I’ll finish it before Christmas. It will stay on my TBR until then 🙂
The only book I didn’t pick up was The Dragon Republic and I’ve moved it over for this month. It will probably be the first book I pick up after I finish Angel Mage which is the book I’m halfway through. Both are on my TBR this month.
For October, I have several plans. I will do a lot of driving for work and spend nights away. That means I will have time for audiobooks, but also less time for evening reading as I will have work to do or be too exhausted.
With all that in mind, lets dive in to the wonderful list of books I plan to read in October 🙂
The links will take you to their GoodReads page for each book. If the book doesn’t have a GoodReads page, the link will take you to their Amazon page. They are not affiliated links.
Need to Finish/Read ASAP
Angel Mage by Garth Nix – I’m over halfway though and just need to finish this, but I’m really enjoying it and not sure I want it to end.
The Dragon Republic (Poppy War #2) by R. F. Kuang – I have been super exited to dive into this one since I got it in early August, but somethings always gets in the way. This time I will read it first, not last
A lot of my audiobooks will be based on what available at the library. I have already several on hold for November and no-fiction November so I can only borrow the one’s which are already available. But the two below is the ones I know are coming and from my audible account.
Murder Under The Sun by Agatha Christie – a collection of short stories by Agatha Christie which should be entertaining 🙂
Raging Star (Dustlands #3) by Moira Young – the last in the trilogy which means I will finish another series! Whoop whoop!! Let’s see if I remember the previous two books now…
Ultimate Reading Challenge books
I made a whole list of prompts to read books by for 2019 and now in the final months I need to wrap it up. This is the time of year where I start twisting my own prompts to fit within the book I already have or shorter ones I can get from the library.
The Complete Maus by Art Spiegelman – Read a book by an immigrant or about immigration. The Complete Maus is a graphic novel about WW2 where the characters are divided into three: humans, cats and mouse. The cats are the Nazis, the mouse are the Jews and the humans are everyone else. And yes it’s a game of cat and mouse.
The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield – A best seller the year I graduated from College/high school. I have had this book on my shelf for years and now I’ll finally reading it.
Iron and Smoke by Brandon Nolta – Read one of the top 10 highest rated books on your GoodReads TBR. Iron and Smoke is the highest rated book on my TBR that is not a recently published book. It came out in 2005 and is a Native American fantasy book based around the 1880s. I don’t know much about it, but I bought it and it’s fairly short. I’m intrigued and interested in this book.
Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater – As part of my challenge of finishing a series with more than 3 books in, I will continue to read the Raven Cycle books. I read the first two books last year and really enjoyed them and I feel now is the time to continue.
Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell – Carry on with this book. I managed almost 20 % in September so I hope to reach 35-40% by the end of the month.
Have you read any of these? What did you think?
