BOO! Happy Halloweentober! Yes, just like every year the entirety of October means Halloween reads, movies, and scares for me! This year I decided to share my reads with you. There is still today and tomorrow before October begins, but I just couldn’t wait with sharing this any longer.
I got plenty of books I would love to read. I saved up several books over the past months, plus I want to re-read a couple I haven’t read in a while. Which includes several of my Higurashi manga series (and yes, I am hyped for the new series to be aired this month). I am not sure I can get through the entirety of the series, it is a big one. And I got plenty of other reads, but we will see.
Plus, my Kindle is also full with scares and horror. I saved plenty of books on it the past months for Halloween months and a couple are also from last year that I didn’t read back then. Oh, and the last five books on the Kindle list are ARCs that I saved for this month. Not to mention, who knows what books I find throughout the month? I cannot wait
I will list my physical TBR in pictures and my Kindle TBR with a list.
Be sure to keep checking out my post as I will update it through the month!
FINAL UPDATE NOVEMBER 1st: One last update to show everything I read. I have read a total of 45 spooky, scary, mysterious, spoopy books. Anthologies, Graphic Novels, Manga, Picture Books, Adult and Children’s Books. So many delicious books~ And as you can see on my photograph for my physical TBR it has a lot of dropped/not in the mood books, thankfully I managed to replenish it with some more physical books that I did read. My Kindle List (along with some reads on my tablet) really got huge! It started off with just 10-15 books, but ended with so many more! It was really a fun month with scary reads that had me awake or startled awake at night. Yep, some were that scary.
I cannot wait for next year and see what is next on my menu. I hope for some more manga then. This year I had a hard time finding a lot, so that is something I want to do next year, search far and wide for spooooooky manga.
I hope you all enjoyed my updates and loved seeing what I read this year for Hallowtober! Look forward to next year, I am already planning. 😛
EDIT 7: Updated my TBR photograph (just one book left I would like to try), updated my Kindle and TBR lists. Still a few days to go! This month has been so much fun so far. I am delighted with all I read so far.
EDIT 6: Updated my Kindle list + added a list of books under my physical TBR of books that were physical but which popped up throughout the month (library books/pre-orders). Not in the mood to make another photograph as it wouldn’t be complete (books had to go back to the library).
EDIT 5: Updated my Kindle list. There is one more book on my list, though I also got two more on my Kindle, but not sure if I will read/add them. Should update my physical photograph but too tired at the moment, will have to wait until I read more than one book.
EDIT 4: Updated my list on October 19th. Photograph updated, updated some reads, currently reading 2 horror books (Higurashi, Under Her Black Wings). As you can see from the photograph my library books didn’t work out.
EDIT 3: Updated my list on October 16th. Photograph to be updated, added some * to the titles as I forgot that, updated what I read.
EDIT 2: Updated my list on October 13th. Photograph updated. Pumpkin = read while red star = tried/didn’t like/not in the mood.
EDIT Updated my list on October 6th. Made a new photograph featuring new reads + marked which books I finished (with scary pumpkins). The Kindle list now shows what I tried/read.
