This is a weekly blog meme by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is Halloween in whatever shape or form! This week I decided to do ten books that I wished I had read this Halloween period. Either I didn’t have time, I didn’t have a copy or I just didn’t get around to them, but here is my Halloween wishlist. Covers link to Goodreads.

This readathon overlapped with Spookathon for one day so while it probably would have been sensible to try and combine the two, instead I focused on Spookathon and reading the library books that were due back, before moving onto this readathon. I didn’t stick to my TBR but I did find books which I feel followed the challenges a lot better.
My TBR post is here.

Every month I sign up for the Fairyloot boxes and so far I’ve been incredibly lucky on the books I’ve received. I’ve read Wicked Like Wildfire and Even the Darkest Stars is next on my list and this month the book was one I had seen talked about again and again, but also one I hadn’t already bought myself.

This is a world divided by blood – red or silver.
The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change.
That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power.
Fearful of Mare’s potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime.
But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance – Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart . . .

I do love Spookathon, it’s one of those readathons where lots of people take part and it’s always fun to see other people’s TBRs. They never match up to mine, but it’s fun to get ideas!
I felt like I did really well this Spookathon, though I didn’t stick to my TBR, I did get all of the challenges done.

This is a weekly blog meme by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is ‘Top Ten Unique Book Titles’. The title of the book is right up there with the cover for me, it has to catch my eye even before I look at the cover, especially when I’m buying online and the cover is taking a while to load.
