Blogtober Day Three: Amanda’s October TBR

Hello, lovelies! Welcome to the first day of Blogtober! It’s the third day of the month, I know, but I don’t post on the weekends anymore. This month I have some fun things planned. I have today a list of the books I’m likely to be choosing from to read for spooky season. I’m pretty behind with my NetGalley tbr, so I want to work on that. But I have some books on my physical tbr here too that piqued my interest for the reading mood I’m looking for this month.

The Final Gambit by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
The Paris Apartment by Lucy Foley
The Yosemite Six by Tess Sharpe
Wild and Wicked Things by Francesca May
How to Hang a Witch by Adriana Mather
The Walled City by Ryan Graudin
The High House by Jessie Greengrass

NetGalley TBR

Just Like Magic by Sarah Hogle
When Life Gives You Vampires by Gloria Duke
The Mountain in the Sea by Ray Nayler
Mistakes Were Made by Meryl Wilsner
The Spare Man by Mary Robinette Kowal
The River of Silver: Tales from the Daevabad Trilogy by S.A. Chakraborty
Little Eve by Catriona Ward
Built to Last by Erin Hahn
The Scratch Daughters by Hannah Abigail Clarke

I will definitely not manage to read all of these as I’m planning to do some prep work for NaNoWriMo next month. But I’m feeling the itch to read again, and my husband will be gone for a bit this month so, I’ll have more time to myself. What spooky books are you reading this month?

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.

Blogtober Day One: Amanda’s October TBR Jar Picks & Gothtober Readathon TBR

Hello, lovelies! Once again, it’s a new month. It’s actually one of my favorite months, October! For me, spooky season starts in September, so I’ve been reading all the books I’ve saved for spooky season for the last month, but I’m excited to share what I’ve planned for this month. I’m going to keep this first Blogtober post as my TBR jar picks because I’ve really been enjoying picking books off my TBR shelf this way. I’m also doing a readathon which I’ll mention later in the post. I have lots of Blogtober content that I’m very excited to share with you all.
