Would you believe me if I told you It has been well over 3 years since I’ve participated in a blog series? Because it’s true! The last blog series I did was my April Book Challenge allll the way back in 2016. Truly, time flies.
But no more—this month will end my non-participatory streak! For the next four Fridays here on the blog, I will be sharing my responses to the following Blogtober prompts. Some of these I might not have an answer for, but I’m going to give them a shot!
I admitted this on Twitter the other day, but I’m not much of a spooky book reader. Thrillers and horrors are genres I never touch, so my October TBR is like any other month’s TBR: one romance and a lot of YA fantasy:
So, I’m currently so backlogged on my physical TBR that I haven’t been super keen on tracking new October releases. The two books I’ve been talking about for the last few months are Daughters of Nri (which released on the 1st!) and War Girls, which releases on the 15th. Most recently (thanks to Leelynn), I’ve also discovered Our Wayward Fate to be excited about too!
Oh gosh, this question caught me by surprise. I’m not much of a seasonal bucket list maker, let alone a bookish one. I guess my one bookish endeavor I’d like to embark on is painting the edges of a hardcover book. I think I want to do it for Girls of Paper and Fire
(which is on my very backlisted physical TBR I mentioned) because that book has such a gorgeous color scheme!
Easy: a spacious window seal by a large open window decorated with various throw pillows and a reading blanket. Whenever I have my own home, I am determined to make this happen.
For my visual people, here’s an example of what I mean!
This one is also easy: Rapunzel’s Mother, The Little Mermaid’s Ursula, The Lion King’s Scar, Zootopia’s Bellwether, and The Sleeping Beauty’s Maleficent (though I actually love her most from my very brief viewing of the TV series Descendants)
This question has effectively stumped me. I don’t read middlegrade books!
I really don’t eat much when I’m reading,
(because I’m that person who worries about getting my pages dirty,) but if I am snacking, it’s probably something like pretzels, a PB&J, or cookies!
This one is a toughy, because like I said, I’m not much of a spooky reader. So these may not be your idea of perfect autumn reads, but they’re books that feel appropriate for the weather and/or lift my spirits when the days get dark and cold around this time of year:
So there’s my first week of Blogtober review! I hope my answers were interesting!
(Apart from the nonexistent spooky MG rec)
Again, these posts will be going up every Friday to avoid absolutely spamming the blog and your WP reader feeds, so I’ll see you again next Friday for week two!
