Spookathon TBR

It’s nearly time for Spookathon, and I have my TBR all planned out and ready to go. I was lucky (or sneaky) enough to be able to cover a couple of the challenges with one book, which means by TBR is reasonably short. Which is a good thing for me because life is kind of hectic at the moment and I don’t have a lot of spare time to read. Which seems to be the story of my life at the moment. Here are the books I picked for the challenges this year –

#1 A Thriller: Love Murder by Saul Black – I really loved ‘The Killing Lessons’ by Saul Black, so when I found out there was a sequel I knew I had to pick it up.

#2 A Book With A Spooky Word In The Title: Skitter by Ezekiel Boone – The thought of things skittering around is enough to spook me out, so I think this book fits the challenge perfectly.

#3 A Book Based On A Childhood Fear: Skitter by Ezekiel Boone – You may have noticed that I managed to fit this book into three of the categories. It fits quite nicely into this category, because I watched Arachnophobia as a kid, and it scarred me for life.

#4 A Book With Orange On The Cover: Skitter by Ezekiel Boone – Pretty self explanatory. If I get enough time I have a Nightmare Hall book that I could also slot in for this challenge.

#5 A Book With A Spooky Setting: 1984 by George Orwell – I’m interested to re-read this now that we live in a time where “Big Brother” is not too far outside the realm of possibility.

October TBR

October is approaching! Which means it’s Halloween (in some parts of the world at least), and time to bring out all the spooky books on my TBR shelf. One of my favourite booktubers Lala is co-hosting something called the Spookathon, which is essentially a readathon where you focus on reading “spooky” books. You can watch her video about it here. Keeping this in mind as I’d like to participate, here are the books on my TBR list for the month –

The Hatching by Ezekiel Boone
The Widow by Fiona Barton
Girl Last Seen by Heather Anastasiu and Anne Greenwood Brown
The Girl With All The Gifts by M.R. Carey
Goosebumps Book #30 It Came From Beneath The Sink
Goosebumps Book #33 The Horror at Camp Jellyjam
Sweet Valley University (Thriller Edition) The Roommate

I’ll be sure to let you know how I go, once the month is over!
