October 2017 TBR

I just can’t believe it’s October already!! This year is flying by way too fast… Despite my recent slump, I still managed to read quite a lot, although less than the previous month. Six of these were on my September TBR, so all in all not too bad even though I really need to read the other four as well. Hopefully soon… Although I haven’t put most of the titles on the next TBR for now.

Bookouture keeps putting up new thriller titles I’m dying to read on Netgalley, so I have been reading more ARCs than would have liked… But since they are anticipated reads in the first place I’m not complaining. 😉 Four of the titles below are ARCs and the rest of them a mix of more Halloween themed reads and books I’ve been looking forward to read.  I’m also hoping to read all the titles on my ‘non-ARC titles I have on my need-to-read-ASAP‘ list before the end of this year!

  1. I know what you mean about Bookouture! They are putting out some great titles! I just got Silent Lies. I’ve read good reviews for your Netgalley picks as well. I also bought The Good Daughter, but haven’t had a chance to read it either. Enjoyed this post!

    • I’m trying not to get any new titles that aren’t on my anticipated releases list but it’s definitely really hard! I’ve resisted the latest Bookouture thrillers (except for Shalini Boland’s newest since she’s one of my favorite thriller authors), but I’m not sure if I’ll keep it that way. 😉

  2. Eleanor Oliphant, Eleanor Oliphant, I don’t think I’m ever going to stop raving about that book. It’s set pretty local to me so I am curious about how it will work for non weegies.

    I’m currently working my way through Rules of Magic. Finding it a little slow.

    • I’m dying to start Eleanor Oliphant! I already wanted to, but ever since I read your thoughts on it I can’t wait. 😀 And I’m having the feeling The Rules Of Magic won’t be fore me; fingers crossed I’m wrong.


  3. Black-Eyed Susans is a great psychological thriller! I audiobooked that one, but it was still amazingly put together and I cannot say enough about it. I also want to read Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, and I am reading Lilac Girls now, I am only 35 pages in.

    • I’m always looking forward to Halloween month, even though it’s currently Spring down here in Argentina! 😉 And it’s mostly a blogging slump right now, so I’m still getting quite a lot of reading done haha.


  4. Uh.. I used to create an ordered list of what books I was going to read, 1 to.. however many I had lined up… now? Now, I just pretty much close my eyes and swipe my Kindle books left to right and back.. whatever I stop on, I read 😀 hahaha… Some interesting titles lined up for October… interested in your thoughts re Eleanor Oliphant.. I recently added it to my own list as well following Inge’s fantastic review.

    • I love that idea though! My monthly TBRs are never too strict anyway and I tend to read different titles instead… But the list does help me get a better idea what I should and what I wanted to read. I can’t wait to read Eleanor Oliphant! I’ve heard nothing but glowing things about it.

  5. I agree with you about this year flying back way too fast! I can’t believe it’s already October. WHAT THE HECK!? Your October TBR looks good! I was thinking about putting Bird Box on my TBR for this month as well. I currently have an “unofficial” October TBR right now…so I’m sure my book choices will change throughout the month LOL.
