Spookathon

I love this readathon. It’s a very low-key readathon, which I kind of need for October-November time, but it does have some challenges which I enjoy. This runs from the 14th October to the 20th (Monday to Sunday). I am hoping that I’ll be in the mood for spooky/thriller books when this week comes along, rather than the complete opposite.

Challenges

  • Read a thriller
  • Read a book with red on the cover
  • Read a book with a spooky word in the title
  • Read a book with a spooky setting
  • Read something you wouldn’t normally read

October TBR

The spooky month! The month before Nanowrimo! The middle of autumn! The month where the end of the year speeds up and hits you in the face! It’s also Black History Month in the UK so I’m going to try to focus on some of my fiction/non-fiction books about black British history.

This month I’m going to set myself a larger TBR than normal in the hope that I can start cutting down on the books I have to prepare for Christmas and my birthday.

Wicked Fox

Wicked Fox (Gumiho, #1)Eighteen-year-old Gu Miyoung has a secret–she’s a gumiho, a nine-tailed fox who must devour the energy of men in order to survive. Because so few believe in the old tales anymore, and with so many evil men no one will miss, the modern city of Seoul is the perfect place to hide and hunt.

But after feeding one full moon, Miyoung crosses paths with Jihoon, a human boy, being attacked by a goblin deep in the forest. Against her better judgment, she violates the rules of survival to rescue the boy, losing her fox bead–her gumiho soul–in the process.

Jihoon knows Miyoung is more than just a beautiful girl–he saw her nine tails the night she saved his life. His grandmother used to tell him stories of the gumiho, of their power and the danger they pose to humans. He’s drawn to her anyway.

With murderous forces lurking in the background, Miyoung and Jihoon develop a tenuous friendship that blossoms into something more. But when a young shaman tries to reunite Miyoung with her bead, the consequences are disastrous . . . forcing Miyoung to choose between her immortal life and Jihoon’s.
