My Spooky October TBR 2021

Halloween is nearly here so I thought it was time to show you all the books I plan on reading this month. I love picking out spooky books to read every Halloween.  There are always so many books to choose from, I’ll probably not get to all of them.  Some of these books are not very spooky but more autumnal or paranormal but I think that still counts as a ‘spooky book’.

My October TBR:

cemetery boys crave mina and the undead once and future witches frankenstein

Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas

Crave (Crave #1) by Tracy Wolff

Mina and the Undead (Mina and the Undead #1) by Amy McCaw

The Once and Future Witches by Alix E. Harrow

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

squad the whispering dead love bites payback a witch night world

Squad by Maggie Tokuda-Hall and Lisa Sterle

The Whispering Dead (Gravekeeper #1) by Darcy Coates

Love Bites (Love Bites #1) by Ry Herman

Payback’s a Witch (The Witches of Thistle Grove #1) by Lana Harper

What books are you planning on reading for October? Do you have a spooky theme?


My Autumn TBR 2021

I have a lot of books I want to read this Autumn including all my spooky Halloween reads but I won’t be including them in this post, I’ll be doing a separate post for all the spooky filled books I want to read which will be going up within the next week or so. For now though here are some books that I plan on reading in the next few months that are not very spooky but books I still want to read. I’m also linking up to this week’s Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl), where the topic is a freebie choice.

Top Ten Tuesday – Books I’ve Recently Added To My TBR That Have Pretty Covers

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is: Titles or Covers That Made Want to Read/Buy the Book. I’ve changed it slightly to Books I’ve Recently Added To My Tbr That Have Pretty Covers. I’ve very excited by the blurbs of these books too but the covers are the things that first stood out to me.

My Summer TBR 2021

Summer has begun so I thought I’d do a list of the books I plan on reading during it. I don’t like listing too many books because I’m kind of a mood reader and want to leave space to change my mind but I do love doing seasonal tbrs so here are some books I can’t wait to read this Summer.

Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
The Crown of Gilded Bones (Blood and Ash #3) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
The Bridge Kingdom by Danielle L. Jensen

Top Ten Tuesday – Most Recent Additions To My TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is: Ten Most Recent Reads. Since I’ve already talked about my most recent reads in my April wrap up which I posted yesterday I thought I’d change this week’s topic to the most recent additions to my tbr.

the faceless mage the ruin of kings all systems red

The Faceless Mage (Legends of Abreia #1) by Kenley Davidson – This is the first book in a fantasy romance series and I keep seeing it on Amazon so I thought I might as well put it on my tbr.

The Ruin of Kings (A Chorus of Dragons #1) by Jenn Lyons – The Ruin of Kings is a fantasy book that I’ve heard so many great things about recently.

All Systems Red (The Murderbot Diaries #1) by Martha Wells – Again I’ve heard nothing but good things about this series and I can’t wait to read about Murderbot.

when the tiger a dowry of blood a memory called empire

When the Tiger Came Down the Mountain (The Singing Hills Cycle #2) by Nghi Vo – I read the first book in this series last month and was intrigued to continue with this series even though they are standalone stories.

A Dowry of Blood by S.T. Gibson – This book is a reimagining of Dracula with the focus on his brides and it sounds like it would be an interesting read.

A Memory Called Empire (Teixcalaan #1) by Arkady Martine – This is a sci-fi/ fantasy space opera book and I’ve seen so many good reviews of it. I don’t really know too much of what it’s about but I’m excited for it anyway.

What books have you recently added to your tbr?


Easter Readathon TBR 2021

I’ve participated in the Easter Readathon for the last few years and this year it’s back again. It’s a readathon hosted by Kate from ReadingThroughInfinity and you can find more details on the readathon here. It takes place from the 2nd of April through to April 5th and there are a few reading challenges/prompts to go along with it but you don’t have to do the reading prompts if you don’t want to.

The reading challenges/prompts are:

1) Read a book that gives you spring vibes
2) Read a book about new beginnings
3) Read a book that’s under 250 pages
4) Read a book with a pastel cover



Forever Interrupted by Taylor Jenkins Reid
(This is my book choice for prompts 1, 2 and 4)

the empress of salt and fortune

The Empress of Salt and Fortune by Nghi Vo
(This is my choice for prompt 3)

Hopefully I can manage to read these two books during the readathon especially since one is under 150 pages. I always enjoy participating in this readathon and I can’t wait to participate again this year.  I’ll be updating my progress on my Twitter (KylasLibrary) so follow me there for updates.  Are you participating in the Easter Readathon this year?
