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.

I’m a bit behind on my eARC’s from NetGalley, so I have a few I want to read this month, as usual. These are just the ones that I couldn’t fit into TBR prompts for this month.

I’m going for Team Demon, which should surprise zero people. The prompts are listed in the graphic below, but I’m also sharing each prompt with my book selection.

Blogtober Day Four: Gothtober Readathon

Hello, lovelies! There are so many fun readathons this month, but one in particular caught my eye. I love the title. I love the prompts. I love the books I’ve chosen for the prompts. This month I am participating in the Gothtober Readathon. You can find all the information for the readathon here on their twitter. It’s running all month long, so I have plenty of time to read the books on this list and also read the books on my other TBR lists. Though some books made more than one list. Let’s get right into it.

fullsizeoutput_3141

Happy October, lovelies! It’s finally spooky season again (well, for me it starts in Septemeber because that’s when I start my spooky reads). It’s the spookiest time of the year, and that also means Blogtober. I’m starting off this month with a quick TBR list. I’m making two seperate TBR lists because we love more content. So, this first TBR will be some backlist books I plan to read for the spooky season. These are a few books that I already own and definitely want to make a priority to read this month.

The Wicker King by K. Ancrum

Wild Beauty by Anna-Marie McLemore

Bewitching by Alex Flinn

The Library of the Unwritten by A.J. Hackwith

An Unkindness of Magicians by Kat Howard

Slayer by Kiersten White

Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning

Watching You by Lisa Jewell

The Death of Mrs. Westaway by Ruth Ware

Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

These are just a few of my options, but the ones I’m more excited about. I have some mysteries, some thrillers, and some with a bit of magic. What books are on your TBR for October? Any good spooky books I should be adding to mine?

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
