Happy October 1st everyone!
In an effort to purge a little more of my enormous TBR, I thought I'd do a five book challenge (alongside my 2016 one) for Halloween.
Below are my top 5 spook-tastic books (Or just generally those I feel are more on the horror side) that I want to read this month, by October 31st. Five's maybe a little easy for a whole month, but I actually don't own many books I would consider 'horror' or even a touch scary. As always, if you have any recommendations, do let me know in the comments or on Twitter.
1) Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.
I've been meaning to read this series for so long that now, with me having all three books and the film out this month, is the perfect time I believe! A lovely Waterstones bookseller told me I'd love them, and I honestly can't wait to prove her right.
2) A Monster Calls.
Again this is one I've been meaning to read for so long, so it of course has to be on the list. I was attempting to read it before meeting Patrick last year, but I unfortunately didn't get very far. Fingers crossed that October is my month.
3) Way Down Dark.
Anyone who knows me knows I love Hodder books and WDD has been keening at me for far too long. Poor book-y. With book three out very soon I really need to get on the band-wagon (so to speak) with this series and catch up!
4) Sweet Evil.
I am really excited to delve into Wendy Higgins' dark novel, and October feels like the perfect month for it. I've had it for quite a while now and have been very keen to start, but something else - whether another book or simply life - has always seemed to get in the way.
The only ARC in this challenge, Caraval is a future release I am so very excited for and I can't wait to finally crack the spine (not literally!) on this sprayed edge beauty! I have actually read the first few chapters and I'm honestly loving it so far; I'm certain the rest will be even better.
So those are my spooktastic reads for October! What are your thoughts? Are there any more I should be reading? Do you have your own October TBR? As always, feel free to let me know in the comments below or on Twitter!
