October 2020 TBR
Good morning bookworms!! Welcome to my October 2020 TBR!!
So… it’s been a hot minute since I’ve written a TBR, and honestly, sometimes I even wonder why I do it, when it is abundantly clear that I very rarely stick to them!! But there are still a couple of books that I want to read before the end of the year (and some review books that I really need to get through), and I figure what better way to share them, than by doing a list for you?!!
Of course, there is also the small matter where I am also signing up to do the Graphics-a-thon, and I likely need a sign up post for it!!
OK, let’s start with Graphics-a-thon, because it is FUN!! And I get to put the books and prompts into a SPREADSHEET!! And you guys know I love a good spreadsheet!!
Only the first 5 prompts are the main ones, but there are an additional 3 prompts, which I may (or may not) get to…
For more info on Graphics-a-thon, please go see one of these amazing people:
Book and author
|A book with BIPOC rep||Rat Queens #4: High Fantasies
By Kurtis J. Wiebe
|A book with disability and/or mental health rep||Mooncakes (reread)
By Wendy Xu and Suzanne Walker
|A book with queer rep||Seven Days
By Venio Tachibana
|A spooky read
*This presents my only difficulty because I’m not a spooky reader… so I’m going with a graphic / violent book
|Rat Queens #5: The Colossal Magic Nothing
By Kurtis J. Wiebe
|A 5-star prediction||
Check Please 2: Sticks and Scones

By Naoko Takeuchi
|A genre or story you wouldn’t usually reach for||Sense and Sensibility
By Jane Austen (original author) and Nancy Butler (adaptation)
Keep your fingers crossed that I can get through most of these in a week!!
OK, so… I am a few review books behind schedule… But only like 20. (Actually, exactly like 20.) So, I will aim to get through these ones in October:
- The Dark Tide by Alicia Jasinska
- Kingdom of Sea and Stone by Mara Rutherford
- The Trouble with Hating You by Sajni Patel
- You Were Made for Me by Jenna Guillaume
OK, so I also want to finish at least one series that I have started this year (or last year…) just to tick some books off my backlist titles (and really start making a dent in my ginormous TBR)… So, these are some creepy-ish books I can add in for October feels!
- Red Glove by Holly Black
- Black Heart by Holly Black
- Winterwood by Shea Ernshaw
- The Near Witch by V. E. Schwab
And, finally, we come to NEW books (because we have to keep my interest in this TBR peaked somehow)!! Of course, these are all the shiny new books that I desperately want to read at the moment.
- Hollowpox: The Hunt for Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend
- Kiss My Cupcake by Helena Hunting
- Heartbreak Boys by Simon James Green
- Fence: Striking Distance by Sarah Rees Brennan
Honestly, I doubt I will get through ALL of these, especially as that slump I was predicting finally caught up to me at the end of September… but we shall try!!
What are you planning to read in October?
I loved The Trouble With Hating You and Kiss My Cupcake! I also really enjoyed Fence but am behind on it.
This is the Fence novel!! I’m so excited!! (So excited that I added it to my TBR before I even got my copy!! ??)
I didn’t know it was a novel!!! Going to get it right now!
Yes!!!!! Mine is in the post!! ?
I’ve given up on tbrs – lol. But I like making lists, so you never know I might start again. Btw I have Kiss my Cupcake on my list for this month 😀

Yeah, I usually fail my TBR… but the list making IS fun!! I also like the possibilities of these being the things that I COULD read (even though I’ll probably read 3 and then forget what’s on the list…) ?

Ouran is really fun but the manga really drags after a while! Personally, I liked the anime better but the first few volumes of the manga are great!!
Good to know!! I loved the anime, so thought I would give this a go. I am a fan of slow-burn though, so maybe I won’t mind??
Ms Stephani Michelle
I have a proof of Hollowpox and I can’t wait to start reading it! Xx
AHHHHHH!! I’m halfway through (release in Australia was last week). I’m loving it, but also trying to savour it.
Looks like you have done great rewards ahead of you!
LOL, it took me a minute to see that you had fixed the word and I was just slightly confused about what you meant. ?
Hahah, I read my own comment and was like, ok need to correct that, this does not make sense!
Great TBR, I hope you love these. Mooncakes was one of my favourite read of last year ?
Yes!! Mooncakes will be a reread. I had an ARC of it, and it was so lovely. ?
This looks like an extremely well balanced and sensible tbr! I too am terrible at sticking to these, but am hoping to get through a bunch of review books I have hanging around before the Christmas reading really picks up!
Ha!! Thanks Bron!! I am trying to be really balanced with the TBR so I actually stick to it… but… I am also really bad at it!! ??
