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.
- 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

This is much later than I planned to get it out (the Top Ten Tuesday topic for this was two weeks ago), but I’ve been liking during the seasonal TBRs so I’m hoping two months would be enough time to get around to it.

Ages ago I did a Summer TBR (here it is) and I thought that, rather than forgetting about it as I usually do, I would come back and see what books I read from that TBR. Mostly because I’m about to post my Autumn TBR and I thought that would be a nice sort-of deadline for my TBR.

This readathon ran from the 23rd to the 29th September and while I wasn’t in the mood to be reading contemporary books during this week (more fantasy than anything else), I pushed through and read a lot of contemporary books on my night shifts. I absolutely did not stick to my 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.

September went by so quickly that I’m still a little in shock that it’s October. That is my excuse for the reason this is late, well that and night shifts. I was in a very contemporary mood for the month of September, at least until the Contemporaryathon, when I found I was in the mood for fantasy. Awkward.

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.
