October is finally here! Fall is upon us along with pumpkin spice, black cats and haunted houses! I love the month of October so much! I love doing all the spooky activities, in fact I worked for a haunted house for a season and that was probably one of my favorite short lived jobs I have had. There was also a small family owned corn maze down by my childhood home I would go to two or three times a year!
This is my year to read some good spooky books or at least Halloween themed books. Last year around this time I think I only read one, maybe two books, that would have gotten me in the spooky mood but this year I have a lot planned! I am taking this very seriously!
Spooky TBR Hopefuls
“The Shinning” by Stephen King is very high on my TBR ever since I read “Pet Semetary” a few months back. It was kind of funny because I ordered this book last weekend through amazon so I could start immediately and the day it arrived someone invited me to join their buddy read for the book, what great timing!. I have seen the movie recently actually and I really enjoyed it but have heard mix reviews about the book strangely but I am still very excited to dive into this book this spooky season.
“The Ex Hex” by Erin Sterling has been everywhere on my bookstagram! Well book of the month club decided to have this book as on of their main picks so of course I had to add it into my box! So I will now have a cute romance Halloween read along with a horror book, it feels like a good balance.
“The Chestnut Man” by Soren Sveistrup has been on my wish list for far too long and this month through book of the month club I finally gave myself a good enough excuse to spend some extra money and grab this as an add on! Now that it has a TV series on Netflix I really need to read this so I don’t get any spoilers.
“The Last Thing He Told Me” by Laura Dave was another book I got from Book of the month club recently. I feel like this thriller will get me into the spooky season spirit! I really love thrillers so how could I go wrong?
This month I only have four books on my TBR hopeful list because “The Shinning” has like a million pages and I know I am a slow reader. So I hope I can read all of these this month but like usual, I can’t make any promises.
I am also still trying to finish “Maybe You Should Talk To Someone” by Lori Gottlieb. I am reading it very slowly because I am trying to take every word in and learn from the book. I hope to finish it this month but I am in no rush.
Stay tuned for my Bookstaversary coming up on October 8th, next Friday! I am having a huge giveaway that I am so excited for! I am giving away signed copies of some of my favorite books! You will not want to miss out on this!
You all should join Book Of The Month Club if you haven’t already. They have so many good books especially good ones for the spooky season! Down below is my link to get your first book for super cheap! Check it out!
I’ve read The Shining and thought it was an ok read. I actually have an unpopular opinion about the movie though because I hated it.

I’ve heard mix reviews but because ruts a buddy read I should stay motivated! I hope 😂 it’s a bit of a longer book than what I typically would like
