October TBR and reading plan 2020

This is the final month of intense reading before NaNoWriMo!

August was a month filled with big books, September was filled with all sorts of book, and now October is here and I still have a lot to read. Will I ever get some time off?!? Yes next month, though only for reading as I will have to write 50k words instead. LOL.

I managed 11 books in total in September. A full wrap-up can be found here. But I was quite please with the progress.

October is also Gothtober for the entire month and I made a separate TBR for that. Most of this months reads is on there (a total of 8 books). So this TBR is just to list up the few I need to read an didn’t manage to sneak onto the Gothtober TBR.

Let’s dive in!

The links will take you to their GoodReads page for each book. It the book doesn’t have a GoodReads page, the link will take you to their Amazon page. They are not affiliated links.

The Burning God (The Poppy War #3) by R. F. Kuang – I’m feel incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity of reading this whole series via e-ARCs. For every single instalment I managed to get an ARC. And this is turning out to be one of my all time favourite series. I do really need to buy a set for myself at some point. I’m a little reluctant to read the final instalment but at the same time I really want to dive back in to see where it all ends, but at the same time I’m scared 😟

The Night Tiger by Yangsze Choo – This is my office book club pick for November and I hope to prepared for it and not rush read it last minute as I have done for the last three times. Lol.

Sofia Khan is Not Obliged by Ayisha Malik – a diverse romance because I need something light in between everything else πŸ™‚

White Fragility by Robin Diangelo – A racism read for me this month.

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas – This is my big read of the year! For the last three years I’ve read one 800+ page classic a year. It all started with Les Miserable, then Anna Karenina and last year was Gone With The Wind. However, in those previous years I started the book towards the end of the year leaving me to rush to finish it on New Years Eve. I have finish all those three long classics just before midnight every time. Three years running! I won’t have it this year! This year I’m starting yearly. And hopefully finishing in a decent time too. I hope to finish it sometime around summer so you’ll see this book a lot on my posts.

Update April: I didn’t manage to get started on this in March like I planned to. Maybe this month will be better…! I need to make a start on this. If I can do single-digit progress on this book I will be very happy πŸ˜€

Update May: This is the 3rd month I have it on my TBR without actually starting it… Though I have opened it and read part of the introduction… which isn’t saying much but hey! its a small step forward though I don’t count that as starting the book.

Update June: AAAAAARG!!! Just get started on it already!!!

Update July: ……………………………………………………………………..*eye roll* still not started. I might save it for TomeTopple in August tho.

Update August: oh yeah! i almost for got about this book. Maybe I should incorporate this into TomeTopple?

Update September: I only have 30 hours left! Yay! So that means I’ve done about 22 hours and 4 short hours away from halfway πŸ™‚

Update October: I only have 28 hours left!! This means I’m almost halfway!! woop woop!! Slow and steady progress 😊 though I haven’t read much of it in September.

Have you read any of these? What did you think?

What’s on your October TBR?

Happy reading!

  1. None of them. September really didn’t have many books- finished Bleak House and started The Golden Compass.

    Will eventually be on another read- today or tomorrow.

    My TBR read list does have Mayor of Casterbridge on it

      1. I am thinking of reading the next two books after The Golden Compass.

        My love for Dickens began in childhood- I was raised on the George C. Scott movie of A Christmas Carol. During Christmas Break, my family always watched that film. It became a family tradition.

      2. I agree- it is best to continue one after another. Here is what has to happen first- I need to like the first book or else what is the point of reading the others

        Due to not yet owning the rest of that series- started Secret Garden. The other two will follow after
