October TBR !

I’m a couple days late on my TBR post because I wanted to wait until I could get a “really cute, fall-ish” picture. Hopefully I’ll have a lot of time this month to dedicate to reading! What books are you guys looking forward to getting to this month?

Carrie – Stephen King

  • Originally Published 1974
  • Page Count 253
  • Genre Horror
  • My Rating Prediction 4 / 5

Can you believe I’ve never read Carrie? Yeah me neither.

The Word is Murder – Anthony Horowitz

  • Originally Published August 2017
  • Page Count 390
  • Genre Mystery, Thriller, Crime Fiction
  • My Rating Prediction 4 / 5

I don’t know too much about this book, but the woman who checked me out at Barnes and Noble said that she loves this book and this author and there’s a sequel to this book that is also very great, so interest? PIQUED.

And Then There Were None – Agatha Christie

  • Originally Published 1940
  • Page Count 264
  • Genre Mystery, Thriller, Crime Fiction
  • My Rating Prediction 4 / 5

I’m excited to read my first Agatha Christie novel! I just started this book a couple days ago and I’m pretty into it so far. Based on what I know of this book, a lot of people are manipulated into visiting a creepy mansion and end up dying. First rule in literature/film : never travel to a place that you can only reach by boat, that usually means you’re going to have a very hard time leaving. Remember that Dawson’s Creek episode with the creepy boat guy who took them to Witch Island? Yeah, like that.

Gideon the Ninth – Tamsyn Muir

  • Pub Date September 2019
  • Page Count 448
  • Genre Science Fiction, Fantasy
  • My Rating Prediction 3.5 / 5

I started this book about a week ago and it’s taking some time for me to get into. I’m not as used to reading Fantasy, but I’ve heard such good things about this book that I want to give it a shot. I saw a comment recently that said that Gideon the Ninth is a lot like And Then There Were None but with lesbian space necromancers. I put them both on my tbr before I even saw that comment so it must have been ~fate~.

The Exorcist – William Peter Blatty

  • Originally Published 1971
  • Page Count 385
  • Genre Horror
  • My Rating Prediction 3 / 5

Surprisingly enough, I love horror movies but have never seen this one in full. I’ve seen bits and pieces of the movie when I was way too young to be watching it, I also just know the basic plot because doesn’t everyone? I have a feeling this book will be slow and hard to get through but hopefully I’m wrong!
