Happy Halloween, fellow readers and bloggers. 🎃 I hope you were able to read whatever scary, thrilling, mysterious, or non-spooky books caught your eye this month. I had quite a good reading month myself, which I hope continues through to the end of the year (because somehow we’re almost there!)
In honor of October and the spooky portion of fall, the three books I’ve pulled From My Bookshelf this month have dark and troubling themes, and take their readers on different degrees of horrifying journeys. The two novels are I’m Thinking of Ending Things by Iain Reid and Ravens Gathering by Graeme Cumming, plus Dark Tales, a short story collection by Shirley Jackson.
Another September gone by; I’m sad that my favorite month is ending and that winter is closing in, but talking about what I read this month will help alleviate some of that sadness for now.
This week’s theme for Top Ten Tuesday (created by The Broke and the Bookish and carried on by That Artsy Reader Girl) is Ten Books On My Fall 2019 TBR. I enjoyed creating a TBR list for fall last year, so to carry on this tradition and get my current reading situation under control (it feels chaotic because I’ve started/am currently reading about six books), I’ve selected some books from my own bookshelves to read from September 23rd – December 21st. Ten of them are physical copies, and because I couldn’t help myself, I’m throwing in one bonus book that is sitting in my ebook library.
