Hi Guys, It’s October, that means Halloween 😄 Now unfortunately in my neck of the woods
australia we’re not that big on Halloween, so to compensate for my country lack of holiday fun it will be Halloween month on the blog!
I’ll be participation in Lauren from Wonderless reviews halloween read-a-thon and I’ve enlisted two friends to help me. Introducing Trev and Larry
Trev will be appearing whenever I dislike a book or fell meh about it, he’s a pretty laid back guy and it takes a heck of a lot to scare him.
Then we have Larry, who loves lots of blood, murder, and maybe even the occasional romance in his Horror. Larry will be around for all the good times and great books.
Now onto the good stuff! My Halloween TBR plans
(it’s basically anything that is scary and contains blood)
Pretty self explanatory. There’s no “guidelines” if you think a cover is creepy for whatever reason then it counts!
IT by Stephen King, I’m a huge King fan but I tend to put his books off because there so lengthy, even though I love them to bits. I’ll be reading IT for the first time and I can’t wait for some psycho Clown action *hides under bed*
Look at that cover! So creepy *shudders*
By Supernatural or Paranormal I mean books that feature things such as: ghosts, vampires, witches, werewolves ect.
Bloodlines By Rachelle Mead, I just finished Vampire Academy and LOVED it a whole lot. I can’t wait to start the spin-off series and see more of these characters and this world.
Also lets just ignore the cover, DON’T LOOK AT IT ahh I really dislike the whole girl face on the front cover thing.
In my opinion people are scarier than monsters so for Horror or Thriller this means a book where real people are the ones who are causing all the scariness.
In The Woods by Tana French sounds amazing:
Twenty years later, the found boy, Rob Ryan, is a detective on the Dublin Murder Squad and keeps his past a secret. But when a twelve-year-old girl is found murdered in the same woods, he and Detective Cassie Maddox—his partner and closest friend—find themselves investigating a case chillingly similar to the previous unsolved mystery. Now, with only snippets of long-buried memories to guide him, Ryan has the chance to uncover both the mystery of the case before him and that of his own shadowy past.
Richly atmospheric and stunning in its complexity, In the Woods is utterly convincing and surprising to the end.
YES! I love a great detective, thriller and I’m so excited to read this.
Again, pretty self explanatory. Fun fact: the witching hour is 3am-4am, but obviously I’m not going to force you all to read at that time. So just read a book after the sun has set!
Four Past Midnight By Stephen King. I’ve had this book on my shelves for years (sorry Mum, but you forgot about it so..) I’m planning on picking up this at night because there are 4 short stories and I can most likely get through them over the course of the readathon.
This may change to Carrie but we’ll see what happens *shrugs*
There’s two options for this challenge. You can choose TRICK and read a scary book you’ve been putting off OR you can choose TREAT and read any book you want from ANY genre (not just horrors ect.)
I’ll be reading Strings by David Estes as part of our The Dragon’s Hoard Book club and I’ll be re-reading Illuminae before I get my hands on GEMINA!
Read six books! Your sixth book can be any scary book you want.
So that;s my TBR but it’s bound to change! I also have these books on my radar for this month:
Other than reading a bunch of scary books I hope to watch some Horror
What are your Halloween plans? Are you joining in with the readathon? Will you be reading Horror/Thriller books? Who’s your favourite Horror Author? I’d love to know!
Also my reviews this month are going to be all horror/thriller/paranormal/monster books so yay!
