Halloween Readathon TBR

Let me start of this post with two little comics that I feel completely ‘get’ my feelings about Halloween.

Needless to say, I’m obsessed with Halloween. My birthday also falls on Halloween (YAY!), but honestly, I love celebrating Halloween so much more than my birthday.

Anyway…

So given this obsession of mine with all things Halloween, combined with the fact that I want to expand my reading horizons a bit, I’ve decided to participate in the Halloween Readathon. This is organized by Lauren @ Wonderless Reviews and runs from October 10th until October 31st. The readathon focuses on trillers, horrors and paranormal books – basically perfect books to get in the Halloween spirit!

Here’s my TBR:

Note: I am a huge mood reader so my TBR’s tend to fail spectacularly. (I consider them more like guidelines than actual rules, hah) So I ended up adding a few more books to the TBR than expected – this way I have some more options and can still switch things around a bit as my mood dictates…

Okay, maybe not everyone will think this is a creepy cover. Maybe some of the other covers are more creepy. But I really wanted to read this one and I do feel like the cover is pretty creepy and fits the Halloween mood perfectly.

The Anna Dressed In Blood duology by Kendare Blake

This duology has received some high praise and it screams Halloween to me. The blurb gave me a slight ‘Supernatural’ feeling as well, so I think it will be perfect!

Stolen: A Letter To My Captor by Lucy Christopher.

Kidnappings and Stockholm Syndrome sound like a thriller to me.

Any of the books in this list – I read mostly in the evenings so these will all probably be read after sunset.

You by Caroline Kepnes

This is one I’ve been wanting to read for a while but I keep procrastinating because I think it will be super disturbing and I’m not sure if I’ll be able to finish it. But I think it’s a must read and perfect for this readathon, so I want to give it a try.

Half Bad by Sally Green The Girl on the TRain by Paula Hawkins

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs The Architect of Song by A.G. Howard

I’ll be leaving this one open so I can still choose a sixth book based on my mood (IF I get that far of course) and so I can maybe switch up some of the books I chose for the challenges, based on my mood.

Possibilities are: Half Bad by Sally Green (has witches so this counts as paranormal), The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins (counts as thriller), Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs (counts as paranormal) or The Architect of Song by A.G. Howard (paranormal)

That’s it for my TBR! If you want to also join the readathon, please check this link for more info!

    This is such a great TBR, Lindsey! The Anna duology and Stolen are two of my favourites so I really hope you enjoy them!! You is super messed up, but I love it hahaha. I’ll be interested to see what you think of How to Hang a Witch!! Thanks so much for participating and it’s so cool that your birthday is on Halloween.

    • Lindsey Habets says:

      Thanks! I’m really looking forward to starting this readathon. I keep on finding books on other TBR’s that are interesting and I want to add, haha 🙂 But let’s first start with these and see where we end up!

    • Lindsey Habets says:

      Oh, I hope we’ll both enjoy The Architect of Song 🙂 I have high hopes for it! And I don’t think I would normally pick up Anna Dressed in Blood, but I heard a lot of praise about it, so I’m super curious to check it out.

    Anna Dressed in Blood made my list too – in the Costume Party category! It seems like a popular pick in general for this read-a-thon! I’m also excited for The Girl on the Train and I hope you like Miss Peregrine; it’s really good! Happy haunted reading and good luck! 😀
