With only one day left, it’s finally time to narrow down my TBR for Dewey’s October Readathon. It might seem a simple task, but after months of ‘saving’ books for the readathon, I have a LOT of options!
The Language of Spells by Garret Weyr: I love to start a readathon with a middle grade read, especially when dragons are involved! It’s the perfect way to ease into the day.
Only Human (Themis Files, #3) by Sylvain Neuvel: Back on Earth, the team discovers the world has drastically changed after accepting the presence of extraterrestrials. Halfway through, I’m hoping to finish before the readathon starts, but if not…
The House in the Dark of the Woods by Laird Hunt: The House in the Dark of the Woods is set in colonial New England just as a young Puritan woman is discovered missing. I’ve been looking for an eerie read after watching The Witch – I’m hoping this one fits the bill!
The Hangman’s Daughter by Oliver Potzsch: A historical thriller set in medieval Germany, The Hangman’s Daughter practically screams Halloween.
The Sisters of the Winter Wood by Rena Rossner: Full of magic and lore, two sisters must trust in each other if they’re to save their family. I’ll have to take a few ‘extra’ breaks to finish the audiobook, but a quarter way in, I’m sure that won’t be hard to do. It’s simply enchanting!
The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert: Another magical treat, I’ve been saving The Hazel Wood for the readathon since it came out last year. Fairy tales are just made to be read in the fall.
The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins: The Library at Mount Char is a secret library full of ancient secrets… everything about this book sounds mysterious and odd in the best way.
The House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski: Just in case I’m in the mood for a loooooong ghost story.
What are you reading this weekend!?
