Hello October means HELLO HALLOWEEN READS! 😀
This is one of my most anticipated month because I get to read creepy books and watch scary movies. Lol. I don’t look like I play the part, but I actually really enjoy these kinds of things. I haven’t made a very scary TBR tho but this would probably change so let’s see, but so far, here are my October planned reads:
Evie O’Neill has been exiled from her boring old hometown and shipped off to the bustling streets of New York City—and she is pos-i-tute-ly ecstatic. It’s 1926, and New York is filled with speakeasies, Ziegfeld girls, and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is that she has to live with her uncle Will and his unhealthy obsession with the occult.
Evie worries he’ll discover her darkest secret: a supernatural power that has only brought her trouble so far. But when the police find a murdered girl branded with a cryptic symbol and Will is called to the scene, Evie realizes her gift could help catch a serial killer.
As Evie jumps headlong into a dance with a murderer, other stories unfold in the city that never sleeps. A young man named Memphis is caught between two worlds. A chorus girl named Theta is running from her past. A student named Jericho hides a shocking secret. And unknown to all, something dark and evil has awakened.
Note: This has been on my most anticipated reads since last year and I cannot wait to see if this will really creep me out! I’m actually starting this right now 🙂
Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace: he has looks and wealth, she has charm and elegance. You’d like to get to know Grace better. But it’s difficult, because you realize Jack and Grace are never apart. Some might call this true love.
Picture this: a dinner party at their perfect home, the conversation and wine flowing. They appear to be in their element while entertaining. And Grace’s friends are eager to reciprocate with lunch the following week. Grace wants to go, but knows she never will. Her friends call—so why doesn’t Grace ever answer the phone? And how can she cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim?
And why are there bars on one of the bedroom windows?
The perfect marriage? Or the perfect lie?
Note: This will be a buddy read along with @jesyshelf and @infinitetbrlist and I am so excited. It looks really interesting!
When Nora takes the train from London to visit her sister in the countryside, she expects to find her waiting at the station, or at home cooking dinner. But when she walks into Rachel’s familiar house, what she finds is entirely different: her sister has been the victim of a brutal murder.
Stunned and adrift, Nora finds she can’t return to her former life. An unsolved assault in the past has shaken her faith in the police, and she can’t trust them to find her sister’s killer. Haunted by the murder and the secrets that surround it, Nora is under the harrow: distressed and in danger. As Nora’s fear turns to obsession, she becomes as unrecognizable as the sister her investigation uncovers.
Note: The moment I got this from Penguin, I am excited to read it but I never had much time. So this month, I want it to be officially part of my TBR.
The dying woman turned to Father Gorman with agony in her eyes. “Stopped….It must be stopped….You will….”
The priest spoke with reassuring authority. “I will do what is necessary. You can trust me.”
Father Gorman tucked the list of names she had given him into his shoe. It was a meaningless list; the names were of people who had nothing in common.
On his way home, Father Gorman was murdered. But the police found the list and when Mark Easterbrook came to inquire into the circumstances of the people listed, he began to discover a connection between them, and an ominous pattern….
Every name of that list was either already dead or, he suspected, marked for murder.
Note: I’ve made it a promise to myself that every month, I will include an Agatha Christie books on my TBR. She has too many awesome books and I NEED to read them all!
Dracula is an 1897 Gothic horror novel by Irish author Bram Stoker, famous for introducing the character of the vampireCount Dracula.
The novel tells the story of Dracula’s attempt to move from Transylvania to England so that he may find new blood and spread the undead curse, and of the battle between Dracula and a small group of men and women led by ProfessorAbraham Van Helsing.
Note: I haven’t really gotten around reading classics so I want to be able to fix that and I’ll probably start it with an intimidating one. lol God bless me with fast reading skills this month.
If I have like a change of hearts, a few more that I am considering to read are:
The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson;
You by Caroline Kepnes;
and The Shining by Stephen King.
And that is it for my Halloween TBR. I really hope i’ll somehow stick to these! PLEASSSSE! 😅
What are YOUR choices this Halloween? Let me know!
Talk to you soon!
