[Readathon] - Spookathon TBR

I wasn't planning on participating in this readathon, but in the last few days I haven't really been reading, so I thought this could be a great way to jump start my reading.
This readathon is hosted by Kayla, Paige and Shannon, and if you don't follow them on social media, you're missing out.
There are five different challenges and I can already tell I will not be reading a book for each. These challenges are:


1. Read a thriller
2. Read a book with red on the cover
3. Read a book with a spooky word in the title
4. Read a 2016 release
5. Read a book with a paranormal character/creature


I will be attempting to combine all these challenges in two of the books I've been wanting to read for a very long time.
The first one, Slasher girls and monster boys is a short story collection about spooky themes, perfect for this kind of readathon. I will also be (finally) reading Harry Potter and the cursed child. Here's to hoping I am not too disappointed.


If for some reason I finish these two books really fast and need something else to read (which will most likely not happen), I will be picking up The good girl, Saga vol. 4, or 1984.



Will you be participating? Let me know! :)

[New Releases] October



Hello friends! Long time, no see.
I’m finally a graduate! I hope this will mean more time to blog and read, but we’ll see.
At least now I’ve got a sort of schedule I’m trying to uphold blog-wise.
Anyway, there are a load of new releases this month I’m very excited about, so I thought I’d talk a bit about them.

October 4th

Replica, Lauren Oliver
This is a very peculiar book. Apparently it can be read many different ways. I wonder wether or not the way you choose to read it will affect your experience with the story. I have yet to read any book by Lauren Oliver, but this one has me intrigued, so it might be my first.

October 11th

The midnight star, Marie Lu
Marie Lu is another author I’ve never read anything about, and this book happens to be the conclusion of a trilogy. However, this one has me very excited since the premise is not exactly a usual one. From what I gather, the protagonist of the trilogy is on her way to become a villain. This seems like the perfect kind of series to binge-read.


What light, Jay Asher
I’ve been meaning to read Asher’s Thirteen reasons why for a while now, and I was actually thinking about reading it this month. If I like it, I think I might give this one a try. Plus, the cover is gorgeous.

October 18th
Gemina, Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
No, I haven’t read Illuminae (I might have been living under a rock for a while.). Yes, I want to. Yes, I’m kind of scared that I won’t like it, since the hype around it is ridiculous. Everyone and their mother loves this book, and I have to admit, the idea of telling a story through a lot of different mediums intrigues me.

The twelve days of Dash & Lily, Rachel Cohn & David Levithan
I read Dash & Lily’s book of dares two years ago, and I enjoyed it. I think this might be a cute story to read around Christmas time.

October 25th

Glitter, Aprilynne Pike
This story sounds so insane that I’m actually really curious to check it out. It’s being pitched as Breaking Bad meets Marie Antoinette. How crazy is that?

Blood red snow white, Marcus Sedgwick
This is actually not a new book, but one that is being revamped. Originally published in 2007, Blood red snow white is not a fairy tale retelling despite what the title may suggest. This is a historical fiction novel set in Russia, sprinkled with a dash of fairy tale. It sounds amazing, and since it has been a while since I’ve read a historical fiction novel, I think I might check this one out.

Are you excited about any of these books? Let me know! :)
