October TBR

So I started the year with grand plans of picking a TBR each month, then with one thing and another this fell by the wayside.

I’ve decided to start again this month, although depending on certain work-related things it may also end up abandoned…but for now, here is my

October TBR

Excuse the hurried, on the way out of the door photo please!

Crater Lake by Jennifer Killick

I have had this for SO long and heard SO many great things about it, but still haven’t read it. This month seems a good time to rectify that!

The Forest of Moon and Sword by Amy Raphael

By contrast this is a brand new reading copy I’ve just received ahead of a January publication date. I don’t know much about it other than that it involves the witch trials and folklore, so that’s me sold really.

The House on Hoarder Hill by Milli Lish and Kelly Ngai

Another I’ve had for ages and what better time to enter a haunted house mystery than on these dark, autumn days?!

October, October by Katya Balen

I know nothing about this. I bought it because of its gorgeous cover, illustrated by Angela Harding, and as if I could not include it in my October reads with a title like that!

Witch by Finbar Hawkins and The Once and Future Witches by Alix E. Harrow

I have these on netgalley and am looking forward to both!

I have a few others on the periphery as possibles if I get through these, but know there’ll be others that pop up to throw it out too!

What do you think if my choices? Are there any spooky reads you’d add?

  1. I thoroughly enjoyed Crater Lake – in the days I taught Year 6 it would’ve been great to read before a residential.

    October, October is amongst the books I have enjoyed the most this year. It’s absolutely stunning and is so autumnal. It’s so incredibly moving.

    • I finished Crater Lake today (so not quite an October read in the end!), I thought it was well written and one I’d recommend, but I didn’t love it personally – I wasn’t expecting the more sci-fi/alien turn it took and I’d just expected something creepier I think.
