It’s almost autumn! I follow astrological seasons rather than going by calendar months, so to me, it isn’t actually autumn until Sunday when the equinox. But enough about astrology and science and stuff, we’re here to talk about books.
I really like to match what I read to the seasons, so autumn (and especially October) is the perfect time for me to read genre fiction, particularly horror and sci-fi. In October I will be doing my Spooky Month posts again, and in November, I will be participating in Sci-Fi Month again and I’m so excited for both that I’ve been planning my posts for months. It never hurts to be prepared, does it?
Blood Promise by Richelle Mead – The end of the third VA book was so unfair that of course I have to continue reading it. Even though I don’t think this is the best series I’ve ever read, it is still entertaining.
Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi – Am I late to this book? Yes, by months. I’ve barely seen anyone talk about this book now so I guess it’s around the right time for me to read it. But the hype is definitely still huge.
Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead – More Vampire Academy, of course. Got to get this series finished before this year is over.
There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins – Stephanie Perkins was one of my favourite authors back in the day when her fluffy contemporaries were all the rage, so the fact that she’s written a thriller book interests me so much.
The Girl from the Well by Rin Chupeco – I haven’t read many reviews of this book (or any book, really) but I have heard that this is pretty dang scary, and that pleases me so much.
Certain Dark Things by Silvia Moreno-Garcia – If I didn’t have more than one vampire book on my October TBR, something weird would be going on with me, wouldn’t it?
Tomie by Junji Ito – I have some high expectations for this one because Junji Ito is apparently one of the “masters” of horror and I’ve seen some of his art, and it’s pretty terrifying. Squee!
Devilman: The Classic Collection 1 by Go Nagai – I can’t believe I finally have this book, I’ve been lusting after it for so long 😭 I’m kind of hoping that this one will be scary, but it might not be.
Dragon Ball Z by Akira Toriyama – How many volumes are in this series? 26. How many of them am I going to read in November? ALL OF THEM. I have no regrets.
Warcross by Marie Lu – I have had this book on my bedside for almost a year now, and I’ve finally figured out where to put it on my TBR, and that’s in Sci-Fi Month. You know what they say, better late than never.
