I genuinely cannot believe that it is already October. Summer felt like it lasted forever, but I feel like i blinked and missed September. So much has been going on and I feel like the world just moved on without me and now it is October. A new month means a new load of books to read though, so lets discuss the ones I am hoping to read this month. I am giving myself a small TBR this month because I am fresh out of a reading slump and still very busy with school, so I don’t want to set myself up to fail. Let’s get into the actual books though…
Rapture, Fallen In Love, Unforgiven by Lauren Kate
If you have been following my blog over the last few months then you will know that I have been reading the ‘Fallen Series’ by Lauren Kate and this month I really want to finish it. I was planning to finish it in September, but that didn’t happen and you can go and read my September Wrap-up to find out why: (https://www.samanthadrage.co.uk/2018/09/28/september-reading-wrap-up/), but this month I really am determined to finish it. The last 3 books in the series are ‘Rapture’, ‘Fallen in Love’ and ‘Unforgiven’. I think Fallen in Love might actually be a novella that isn’t part of the main series. I’m not 100% sure, but I don’t want to check in case I get spoiled. I will keep you all updated on that though and if any of you happen to know then please do tell me in the comments!
Shadow Jumper by J.M.Forster
‘Shadow Jumper’ is a middle grade novel that I am going to try out. It is a book that my sister donated to me in August because she didn’t want it anymore and the concept sounded pretty good, so I said I would take it. I like to read middle grade as a bit of break from the more intense YA novels I tend to read and it is nice to have something easier to read during term time when I am already using my brain power for a lot of other things. The book is about a boy who can only go outside at night and he likes to travel over the roof tops. One day his dad goes missing and he is the only person who can save him as his condition worsens, so he goes on a mission to find him. It sounds like a fun, simple read that I will be able to finish in one sitting, maybe in a readathon or something.
Those are the only 4 books I am putting on my TBR for this month. That is 1 book a week, which I think is 100% achieveable, but I just didn’t want to set my expectations too high as I do have some mock exams in the middle of October. I go on half term at the very end of October though, so hopefully I will be able to get some reading done then adn maybe do a week long readathon? What are you planning to read in October? I’d love to know, so leave a comment down below and tell me!
Goodbye for now!
Over and Out
