The final prompt for #FallTreasures is #OctoberTBR 🍁📚
In addition to my already posted #TBR books for #scarathlon & #screamathon I found a couple of extra books I may add/choose for those events, plus my #sundaybuddyread of These Violent Delights & just two book tour review books. I won‘t read them all but I like to have choices.📚📚📚

Thanks to @Eggs & @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks for the fun September challenge, looking forward to October!

alisiakae Choices are a wonderful thing! 👻 1y

Late Post. I had a pretty successful #october20in4 - finished White Teeth (amazing!), started and finished I‘ll Be Gone In the Dark (OK), and started a new to me Mystery series with Bruno, Chief of Police (enjoying it so far). Thanks for a great #readathon @Bookgoil

Bookgoil Great job!!! 2y

So, I goofed up the graphic...I‘m still suffering from a pretty severe case of quarantine brain and was under the impression that October only had 30 days! 😂

#bookspin is A Cookbook Conspiracy by Kate Carlisle
#doublespin is A Climate of Fear by Fred Vargas. Loving that they line up for a bingo 😄

Yesterday was a tough day at work, so I am looking forward to relaxing today and adding some points for #scarathlon2020. Wracked up a few by watching an episode of Ratched while making my board.

@TheAromaofBooks @Clwojick

TheAromaofBooks Yay!! Hope you get some relaxation in today!! Work has been crazy for me, too. I'm ready for some down time! 2y

#OctoberTBR looking ambitious for me, but also a fun list!

- Top two are for my #bookspin and #doublespin picks
- Next four are for #popsugar2020
- Bottom row, 3 #netgalley reads and a re-read for book club at the end....

drokka If you need one as an ebook, go for Lab Girl, I believe it‘s the author who narrates and it feels like a fiction. 2y
KarenUK Thanks or the tip @drokka I‘ll do that.... 🎧💕 2y

#OctoberTBR = more books than I will finish?! (I even took some out of the pile! 😂) I‘m also starting that massive McCullough history of Christianity this month (but that will carry on throughout the year until June).

Four of these are in progress, three are spooky-ish or at least feel October-y to me, and then it seemed timely to pick up Jesus for President again and maybe finish it. And then the library books that I meant to finish last month!

post image

I head into October with a couple books hanging over my head, so my #OctoberTBR consists of the books I want to read for #Screamathon, two in-progress reads, and two other books I‘d really like to read before the week is out.

alisiakae I‘m mixing in a few P&P adaptations for #PemberLittens along with my Screamathon stack. Gives some variety! 2y

Here is my October TBR. I won a physical ARC of We Keep The Dead Close from Goodreads in September. This book goes on sale November 10. I wasn‘t planning on reading it right now but I‘m trying to do better about reading my ARCs on time and if I don‘t read it this month then it‘s not going to get read on time. I already started Lonesome Dove. I‘m 500 pgs into it so I need to finish it this month. This book is 858 pages.

post image

These are the books I chose from my #tbrjar to read this month.

It‘s October, which must mean it‘s #Scarathlon2020 time. Who‘s playing along?

#HelloOctober! 🎃 some people call it Halloween aesthetic, I call it a Thursday - featuring the print format selections from my #bookspinbingo #scarathlon2020 #teamharkness #screamathon #tbr. Sad thing is I just discovered my copy of A Discovery of Witches went out with last month‘s donations. So excited to get started with @Sace #cyoreadathon as soon as I get a free minute. And of course tomorrow‘s #bookspin and #doublespin. 👀 @TheAromaofBooks

Bit late as I was on holiday. Tried to get through a few spooky books for Halloween month. Didn't do too badly

post image

14 more down in October and I'm more than on track to reach my yearly goal of 125. Faves were The Lost Book of the Grail, the re-read via audiobook of Just One Damned Thing After Another, and Ninth House. Most challenging was probably The 2020 Commission Report...only because it's been quite some time since I've read something that straightforwardly military. All in all, another good month.

Many of you have been posting gorgeous October pictures. Here‘s one of October in south Louisiana. In other words, we don‘t have fall. It is still in the 80‘s and 90‘s here. We are getting a cool front tonight though. We still won‘t have those gorgeous colors many of you have.
