October ’17 My TBR List

Posted October 6, 2017 by Lillian in Features / 9 Comments

This meme is hosted by Michelle @ Because Reading. By the first Saturday of the month, I’ll pick three books from my massive TBR pile and then you will vote which one I read. Majority vote wins and I’ll post the winner on the second Saturday of the month. Then I will read the book and on the last Saturday of the month I’ll share what I thought about the book you picked for me to read. Fun right ? I’ve tweaked this meme just a little and will also share with you what I plan to read for the month. Voting is at the bottom.

Happy Friday y’all! October is already in swing here and I’m still not believing that September is over. I again didn’t do so hot with my TBR list last month. I’m just too much of a mood reader I think. I’m going to try though to stick to the list this month….try being the key word there ? I read 7 out of 13 last month, so a few may be repeats. I’ll list those last.

Book Cover for "Just One of the Boys" by Leah and Kate RooperBook Cover for "Running Out of Space" by S.J. HigbeeBook Cover for "Rebel Seoul" by Axie OhBook Cover for "The Emperor of Evening Stars" by Laura ThalassaBook Cover for "Court of Twilight" by Mareth Griffith

Just One of the Boys by Leah and Kate Rooper: Occasionally I enjoy a contemporary romance, and this is one of those that I’m looking forward to enjoying. The blurb and cover remind me a little of the movie She’s the Man where Amanda Bynes character dresses as her brother and plays soccer. Looking forward to reading this, sure to be quirky/funny, book.

Running Out of Space by S.J. Higbee: I follow this author’s blog and I’m excited to be participating in the release tour later this month for her new book. I’m a sucker for sci-fi 😀

Rebel Seoul by Axie Oh: So excited to be reading this book finally. I love a good dystopia and this book sounds amazing. I can’t wait to start it!

The Emperor of Evening Stars by Laura Thalassa: One of my auto-buy authors and I’ve been dying to get my hands on this book since she announced it earlier this year. Two more weeks…I can wait that long right?!

Court of Twilight by Mareth Griffith: This book is a combination of fantasy and urban set in Dublin. I like the idea of reading an urban fae book.

Time to Vote!

I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga

What if the world’s worst serial killer…was your dad?

Jasper “Jazz” Dent is a likable teenager. A charmer, one might say.

But he’s also the son of the world’s most infamous serial killer, and for Dear Old Dad, Take Your Son to Work Day was year-round. Jazz has witnessed crime scenes the way cops wish they could—from the criminal’s point of view.

And now bodies are piling up in Lobo’s Nod.

In an effort to clear his name, Jazz joins the police in a hunt for a new serial killer. But Jazz has a secret—could he be more like his father than anyone knows?

Muti-Nation by Monique Snyman

Every country has its secrets. Every culture has its taboos. Every house has its cross.

When Esmé Snyders – a young occult-crime expert – investigates a grotesque muti-murder in Pretoria West, she doesn’t realise she’s become a player in the killer’s deadly game. Before long, more savagely mutilated corpses join the tally, proving that the evasive murderer is slipperier than what she’s used to when it comes to muti-killers. While searching for a monster capable of such heinous crimes, Esmé is thrust into a dangerous adventure of love, sex, death and the paranormal. Can she win a game she doesn’t know she’s playing?

The Lie by C.L. Taylor

I know your name’s not really Jane Hughes…

Jane Hughes has a loving partner, a job in an animal sanctuary and a tiny cottage in rural Wales. She’s happier than she’s ever been but her life is a lie. Jane Hughes does not really exist.

Five years earlier Jane and her then best friends went on holiday but what should have been the trip of a lifetime rapidly descended into a nightmare that claimed the lives of two of the women.

Jane has tried to put her past behind her but someone knows the truth about what happened. Someone who won’t stop until they’ve destroyed Jane and everything she loves.

  1. I have trouble sticking to planned reading too, no matter how much I want to read the books I wanted to read in any given month or season. But I do love making lists . . . 🙂 All your choices for the TBR poll sound good this week. Very fitting for this time of year. I went with The Lie in the end. I hope you enjoy whichever wins! Have a great weekend.
