So during the month of October I had a bit of a reading slump and didn’t really read anything, however this month I want to catch up on my reading so this TBR is going to be a big one. I probably won’t be able to finish all these but I want to try.
Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell
The story is supposed to be over. Simon Snow did everything he was supposed to do. He beat the villain. He won the war. He even fell in love. Now comes the good part, right? Now comes the happily ever after… So why can’t Simon Snow get off the couch?
What he needs, according to his best friend, is a change of scenery. He just needs to see himself in a new light…That’s how Simon and Penny and Baz end up in a vintage convertible, tearing across the American West.
This is a book that I’ve been excited to read for months, I actually started reading it when it came out, unfortunately that was during my reading slump and I never finished it. I definitely want to finish this this month. I only read the first book back in the beginning of September and I fell in love with Simon, Baz and Penny, Rainbow Rowell is a brilliant author and I can’t wait to read more of her works.
Alice by Christina Henry
In a warren of crumbling buildings and desperate people called the Old City, there stands a hospital with cinderblock walls which echo the screams of the poor souls inside.
In the hospital, there is a woman. Her hair, once blond, hangs in tangles down her back. She doesn’t remember why she’s in such a terrible place. Just a tea party long ago, and long ears, and blood…Then, one night, a fire at the hospital gives the woman a chance to escape, tumbling out of the hole that imprisoned her, leaving her free to uncover the truth about what happened to her all those years ago.
This is another book that I started just before I hit my reading slump back in the beginning of October. I love retellings of classic stories and fairytales and when I found Christina Henrys books I was interested to see how she would twist the classic Alice In Wonderland. This is definitely and adult retelling, more violent, which is something I like to see and can’t wait to see what direction she takes this book.
Frankly In Love by David Yoon
High school senior Frank Li is a Limbo–his term for Korean-American kids who find themselves caught between their parents’ traditional expectations and their own Southern California upbringing. His parents have one rule when it comes to romance–“Date Korean”–which proves complicated when Frank falls for Brit Means, who is smart, beautiful–and white. Fellow Limbo Joy Song is in a similar predicament, and so they make a pact: they’ll pretend to date each other in order to gain their freedom. Frank thinks it’s the perfect plan, but in the end, Frank and Joy’s fake-dating maneuver leaves him wondering if he ever really understood love–or himself–at all.
This is a new release that I’ve been excited to read for months now, ive heard some really great things about it, even though im not really a huge fan of romance the plot for this one really interested me. This book is one that im going to be taking on holiday with me so I’ll hopefully have it finished by the end of next week so I can post a review of it.
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
IN THE YEAR 2044, reality is an ugly place. The only time teenage Wade Watts really feels alive is when he’s jacked into the virtual utopia known as the OASIS. Wade’s devoted his life to studying the puzzles hidden within this world’s digital confines, puzzles that are based on their creator’s obsession with the pop culture of decades past and that promise massive power and fortune to whoever can unlock them.
A book I have wanted to read for years now but for some reason never got round to it. I watched the film a couple of weeks ago with my little cousin and thought it was a pretty good film, that has made me want to read it even more now and I finally decided to do it this month. I’ll be reading the audiobook version of this one as I don’t yet have a physical copy.
Harry Potter and the Chamber Of Secrets by J. K. Rowling
The Dursleys were so mean and hideous that summer that all Harry Potter wanted was to get back to the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But just as he’s packing his bags, Harry receives a warning from a strange, impish creature named Dobby who says that if Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts, disaster will strike
Finally the last book on this list but one of the ones im most excited about. Ive started rereading all the Harry Potter books in the form of the illustrated editions, the first one was so beautiful that im even more excited to read this one. I don’t really remember much about this book as its been years since I last read it, I do however remember that it was my least favourite when I was younger so can’t wait to see what I think about it now.
There you go, thats my list on all the books I want to read this month, I may end up reading more or I may even end up changing the list abit as the month goes on.
Thank you for reading,
