Well, here we are. Trying another TBR. I didn’t do so badly last month. Especially considering I read a few books that weren’t on the TBR, because I can!
This month I am focusing on spooky themed books, cause October. I’ve never been a big fan of the horror genre, and this month I’ve committed myself to reading quite a few of them.
So that’s going to be fun.
The Final Girl Support Group by Grady Hendrix
A group of Final Girls get together to, well, support one another after surviving their own harrowing tales. Until one by one they are starting to be picked off. I loved A Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires, so I have high hopes for this one.
Ring Shout by P. Djeli Clark
The Klan’s ranks have grown thanks to dark forces and it’s up to resistance fighters, led by Maryse Boudreaux, a Hellfighter, to stop them. This sounds great!
The Ballad of Black Tom by Victor LaValle
Tom delivers a book to a shop and that opens his entire world to the occult. I’ve heard good things about this book so I have high hopes.
A Cosmology of Monsters by Shaun Hamill
Noah Turner sees monsters. So does his father. His dad built a horror park dedicated to them. Noah just lets them into his life. But why does this sound terrifyingly cute?
The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling
Vivienne laid a curse on her ex-boyfriend 9 years ago. She didn’t think it would stick. Now he’s back in town and everything is going wrong. It’s a romance and I bought it? Yes! Have I read it already because I couldn’t wait? Also yes! I’ll have a review up on Thursday the 21st.
The Year of the Witching by Alexis Henderson
Immanuelle Moore does her best to follow the will of the Prophet of Bethel. But when she is lured into the forest outside Bethel, the spirits of the forest offer her her mother’s diary, and her whole life changes. This was one of my book clubs pick for this month and I’m so excited because this was the book I put up for voting! I had been holding onto this one since last year waiting patiently for October to arrive so I could suggest it. Yeah, I regret that decision.
Silver Borne by Patricia Briggs
This fifth entry in the Mercy Thompson series is all about the Fae. I won’t go into details, because yeah, fifth in the series. But given that I’ve read it before, I know it will be good.
So yes, I know. There are 7 books on my TBR. What am I thinking? I’m thinking that several of these are shorter books so I should be able to get through those, at least, fairly quickly.
Will I get through every book? No idea. Am I hoping to? Of course I am.
