How in the world is it already October?! September flew by so fast! I posted my September Wrap-up a few days ago, so it’s time for my October TBR. Of course, as it is every month, this is a very flexible, open-ended TBR list, but it includes some books that I’m really hoping to get to this month.
Reality Boy, by A.S. King (Currently Reading)
I’m currently reading this book, and it’s nothing like I expected it to be. I don’t know what I was expecting exactly; I guess I was thinking it was just about a boy whose family was part of some reality TV show at one point, and he’s just dealing with people associating him with the television show. While it does include that as part of the plot (somewhat), this book is so much more than that, and it’s a lot heavier than I thought it was going to be. In result, it’s been taking me a lot longer to get through this book, but that’s not to say I’m not enjoying it. I’m really interested to see where it’s going to go.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, by Ransom Riggs
With Halloween in our midst and the fact that the film adaptation just premiered in theaters, I think it’s only fitting that this book be added to my October TBR. I really can’t believe I haven’t read this book yet. All I know is that this book revolves around a boy who encounters a group of children with certain peculiarities.
Passenger, by Alexandra Bracken
All I really know about this book is that it involves time travel and pirates (sailors?). I’m sold. I’m craving some romance, so I’m hoping this will somewhat satisfy that craving. Plus, I hear Passenger is AMAZING (according to the BookTube to community).
A Torch Against the Night, by Sabaa Tahir
The only reason I haven’t read this yet is because I went on a sudden contemporary binge. The first book, An Ember in the Ashes, was amazing (5/5 stars, check it out in my August Wrap-Up). I absolutely loved the world that Tahir created, and I can’t wait to find out what happens next.
Unnatural Creatures, compiled by Neil Gaiman
This book is a collection of short stories about the “fantastical things that exist only in our minds” that was put together by renowned author, Neil Gaiman. Again, I figured this would be a perfect fit for the month of Halloween, and maybe it will help get me back in the mood for fantasy again.
11/22/63, by Stephen King
This is probably a reach, but it’s kind of appalling that I haven’t read anything by Stephen King… ever. So when better to start than October?! It’s a reach because it’s out of my comfort zone, but I’m setting goals here, people!
