Blogtober Day Twenty-Nine: Amanda’s Gothtober Wrap Up

Hello, lovelies! I know that there’s still a few days left in October. But I’ve managed to finish all of the books I was planning to read for Gothtober and I wanted to share that with you all! I had to change a few of my choices for the prompts because I DNF’d some of the books that were on my original TBR (you can find that here.)

Mythology
Pahua and the Soul Stealer by Lori M. Lee

Omens
The Death of Jane Lawrence by Caitlin Starling

Found Family
The Bronzed Beasts by Roshani Chokshi

Dark Romance
A Shadow in the Ember by Jennifer L. Armentrout

LGBTQ+ Representation
Into the Dying Light by Katy Rose Pool

Murder
The Hawthorne Legacy by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Classics
Within These Wicked Walls by Lauren Blackwood

BIPOC Representation
The Dating Dare by Jayci Lee

Disability Representation
The Bone Houses by Emily Lloyd-Jones

I’m pretty proud of myself for actually managing to complete all these prompts. I DNF’d two of my original choices, so it’s not identical to the TBR I shared at the beginning of the month. But I managed to read books for all the prompts and I think that’s what counts. How did you do?

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
