October TBR

I’m planning on five different readathons for October (I said there was a lot!) and so I have a very, very large TBR for this month. As my TBRs for readathons change quite frequently due to getting new books out of the library and mood, I’ll be putting on this monthly TBR the books I want to read the most out of all my readathon TBRs (which will be posted throughout the month) and the library books I want to get to. For books, I want to finish reading Throne of Glass and Conjuring of Light since they have been on my ‘Currently Reading’ list for over a month.

September Wrap Up

Considering I had only one readathon planned for this month, I ended up taking part in three of them. This was a successful reading month for me, not only due to readathons and books read, but I finished a few books that I have had on my ‘Currently Reading’ list for a while, such as Eternity in an Hour, Wake, Outlander and The Queen of the Tearling. I managed to read two books on my September TBR.
