Top 5 Tuesday – October 2020 topics
Good morning bookworms!! Welcome to the Top 5 Tuesday – October 2020 topics post!!
What a week!! I am FINALLY on leave!! And I am so excited!! However, last week’s reading and blogging efforts definitely took a hit, as I was making sure that everything at work was ready for me to take a break, so I worked late every night, and then on Saturday I was basically a potato while my brain caught up, and now I’m starting to get back into the swing of things.
So, let’s talk about October topics!! I’ve been thinking about traditional Hallowe’en type topics… but I don’t read horror or thriller books at all… so they are my spin on spooky topics!!
Top 5 Tuesday was created by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm, and it is my absolute privilege and pleasure to say that it is now being hosted here, at Meeghan reads!!
Ok, so as I said above, these are my interpretations on Hallowe’en spooky-ish topics!!
6 October: Top 5 black and orange
Tell us all about your favourite books that have black and/or orange on the cover!!
13 October: Top 5 ghosts
What are your favourite books that either have ghosts or talk about ghosts?
20 October: Top 5 witches

27 October: Top 5 creepy characters
Somewhere to talk about all the characters who make your skin crawl!!
*I’m so hoping someone mentions The Crucible this week. No pressure. (It won’t be me, but honestly, I’d just love to see it on a list!! ?)
As always, please link your Top 5 Tuesday posts to one of my posts (not just my homepage, because I won’t get a notification) and I will collate all your responses and share them!!
Which prompts are you looking forward to?
Excited for this! Although I already can’t think of ghost books.. But I have some time left!
There’s so many!! Some that I haven’t read are City of Ghosts (or at least I assume there are ghosts in it), probably a bunch of Stephen King books, the Graveyard book, and a Christmas Carol (although I’ve always wanted to read this one… but the movies are so good that I just never did – my fave is the muppets one ?)
City of Ghosts was definitely the first one coming to mind! You should read it, it is really good!
I have a weird relationship with Schwab books. I want to love them, but because of all the hype I always walk away slightly disappointed. Honestly I need someone to tell me that they aren’t that good. ??
I won’t be that person hahah! I love her work!
Oooh Ghost stories..that will be hard!
No!! They don’t even have to be ghost stories, just books that have a ghost in them!! *cough* Noah *cough*
Lou @ Pine Tree Books
omg this makes me so excited!!!!! especially for the ghost one, I’m still waiting for a ghost to appear in my house so I can fall in love with them lol :’)))
YES!!!! I mean, yay about the topics. I am definitely not waiting for a ghost. My cats already stare at weird empty spaces as it is…
Yay – these are great themes! I’m excited about the witchy one – I do love a witch book!
The Reckless Afterlife of Harriet Stoker is a brilliant ghosty story!
I don’t know that story, but now I’m going to look it up!! ?
These are some great prompts, got me out of a mild slump. Thanks for hosting this! Will be signing-up for Top 5 Tuesday from now 🙂
YAY!! I’m so glad, and WELCOME!! ?
