My October 2019 TBR

When I set out my September TBR, I did a little experiment and I sectioned out my books into sections around 5 chapters long. And that actually worked out really well for me - I read at least a section a day and I smashed my TBR and it felt amazing. I only missed out on finishing one book, but that's because it was an anthology and a few of the stories just weren't for me and made me feel a bit slumpy.

This month I'm going to do the same with a few books, especially the review copies that have worked their way on to my list. It helped to motivate me, gave me something I could actually see to work towards.

The Books On My October TBR

I don't feel like I have a huge amount of books on my October TBR, and it's mostly me just having fun and reading witchy books in the run up to Hallowe'en. I think I'll probably do pretty well, as long as I stop re-reading Outlander, which definitely did not help last month. It's gonna be tough though, I'm hoping the grim weather is an encouragement.

  • The Beautiful by Renée Ahdieh
  • Carmilla by Kim Turrisi
  • The Deathless Girls Kiran Millwood Hargrave
  • The Family by Louise Jensen
  • Hex Life: Wicked New Tales of Witchery edited by Christopher Golden & Rachel Autumn Deering
  • Impossible Causes by Julie Mayhew
  • Monster, She Wrote by Lisa Kröger & Melanie R. Anderson
  • Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin
  • The Widow of Pale Harbour by Hester Fox
  • The Witch's Kiss by Katharine & Elizabeth Corr
  • The Witch's Tears by Katharine & Elizabeth Corr
  • The Witch's Blood by Katharine & Elizabeth Corr

I don't realistically feel like I'll get to The Beautiful, because I'm expecting it in a book box that ships very late in the month. But I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll manage the rest of them!

What's on your October TBR?


  1. That is a cool way of tackling your TBR and getting it under control!

  2. Good luck with your TBR!😊

  3. Serpent & Dove is doing all the rounds, I'd love to hear what you think of it when you get to it.
    I've got three short stories left in Hex Life, this has been one of my favourite anthologies I've read. I don't think I've given a story less than 3 stars, I'm finding something to enjoy and love in every tale.

  4. The Deathless Girls is a book that I'm wanting to get to this month just hoping that my library has a copy in soon!

  5. This is such a clever way to tackle your TBR! I might have to give it a go!

  6. This looks like a great TBR. I am very intrigued by the idea of marking out so much to read, but I also feel like if I did that I would instantly rebel against it 😂

  7. So many witchy books on your TBR, perfect for autumn. I am looking forward to reading Serpent & Dove. That is on my October TBR as well!

  8. Ooh, what a wonderful TBR! Witchy reads are perfect for this time of month.

    I haven't set myself a TBR but I definitely want to finish the books I'm currently reading (Poldark and The Red Scrolls of Magic) before the month is finally up!

    Hope your reading goes well.
