Spooktastic Reads, TBR

It’s Spooktastic Season!

We are entering the last 13 Days of October, which means it’s time for Spooktastic Reads, our Wyrd and Wonder mini event! In case you missed my announcement post earlier this month, it’s a very relaxed blogging event to celebrate all things dark and eerie within fantasy. There’s no Reading challenge or sign up to take part, just find us over on Twitter under the account @WyrdAndWonder or in the #SpooktasticReads hashtag. We want to see what you Halloween reads are, because if we love anything it’s bookish temptations! We do have a photo challenge, too, which you can find over on Instagram (@WyrdAndWonder there too) but is also here:

If this also inspires you to put together a couple of blog posts, go for it! Tag us so we can see them! As well as our event account, you can keep an eye on all five of your Wyrd and Wonder crew for updates and other fun content: Imyril, Lisa, Jorie, Annemieke, and myself will all be reading and posting throughout!

But it’s TBR time! What am I reading? Well, I’m currently in the middle of a holiday in Italy, travelling out with a friend I haven’t seen in ten years (!!) so I’m not getting too much reading done, but rest assured I plan to catch up on the flight hope and the following week.

Book stack: Dead Good Detectives by Jenny McLachlan, The Devil and the Dark Water by Stuart Turton, Into the Heartless Wood by Joanna Ruth Meyer, Saint Death’s Daughter by C. S. E. Cooney

My physical TBR is pictured above, with a great combination of ghosts, necromancy, and dark forests.

And because I’m travelling, I have two books downloaded on my phone for weight purposes and to try and catch up on books in the moments between things, and both are very kindly provided by publishers. The first is The Taking of Jake Livingston which is queer, full of ghosts (very creepy ones), and tackles the hard topics of racism and gun violence, which are the real nightmares. Then there’s Within These Wicked Walls by Lauren Blackwood which is an Ethiopian-inspired fantasy retelling of Jane Eyre. That’s all I know about it but I am HYPE.

Will I get through all these? Doubtful. Will I try? Very enthusiastically! I look forward to seeing what everyone else has planned!
