This is a new thing I thought about doing for the last couple of months but I wanted to make sure I was getting back into the swing of things before starting anything new. We’ll see how this goes!
Every month I want to have a theme which I try to base my books around. It doesn’t mean I’m going to only read books in that theme, but it does mean I’m going to try and move them to the top of my monthly TBR.
(No, the pictures have more of a seasonal theme rather than the TBR theme, but I’m using them to connect my monthly posts)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme. It used to be hosted by The Broke and the Bookish but now it is being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is ‘Titles That Would Make Good Band Names’ but I wanted to change it up and do books with bands in them. Considering I do not like books where the main characters are musicians, this was very hard (and why there are only five books rather than ten).
This are rated with my top favourite first and my least favourite at the bottom. All covers link to Goodreads.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme. It used to be hosted by The Broke and the Bookish but now it is being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is ‘books which give off autumn vibes’ and this is a topic I would be more than happy to talk about.
For me, autumn is about magic. Lots of blues and purples, lots of rain and deserted houses and country are autumn vibes for me. I’ve read all these books and would definitely recommend any of them if you’re looking for an autumn read. All covers link to Goodreads!

One of my 2018 goals was completing the Modern Mrs Darcy challenge. I picked this challenge because it seemed to be fairly simple and had only a few categories. I read a lot but trying to read specific books is a lot more difficult for me.
I enjoyed this challenge but I think next time I’m going to look at monthly, rather than yearly challenges. All covers below link to Goodreads.
Did anyone else take part in this challenge?

I saw so many of these posts and videos going around that I knew I had to do one! I didn’t do all the year-end posts I wanted to last year so I was hoping to actually be a little more organised this year.
During my monthly wrap up posts, I pick a favourite book of the month. Sometimes this is really easy and other times, not so much. When it came to picking my top ten favourite books of the year, I looked at these top books of each month and ended up only taking half of them for this list.
On this list, I’ve picked books that are five stars, but I’ve also picked books that I’ve enjoyed so much that I’m going to reread them to see if there is anything I missed on the first readthrough.

October is all done! That was a very busy month, I was having to catch my breath as I try to prepare for Nanowrimo next month! Between Blogtober and Preptober, this was a busy month for me and I didn’t get as much reading done as I would have liked. I didn’t get half the stuff done as I would have liked but I put that down to poor planning.
And yes, this wrap up is over a week late but I’ve been concentrating on Nanowrimo (which I feel is going very well, it’s just other things falling by the wayside) but I’m hoping to get back on top of myself soon.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme. It used to be hosted by The Broke and the Bookish but now it is being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is Halloween/Creepy freebie. I did some Spooky Recommendations a couple of weeks ago so this week I focused on the creepiest books I’ve read. My ratings for these books vary so much, but I think they all have tense, creepy feel to them.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme. It used to be hosted by The Broke and the Bookish but now it is being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is ‘villains’ and I decided to do the books with some of my top villains. These are top for me because they’re so realistic or they’re just fun to read about, whether they’re the protagonist or the antagonist.

- A diverse book that has not yet been released

October is the home of spooky reads and I thought I would do a post recommending my favourite spooky reads in the middle of the month, and then one on Halloween at the end of the month with all the books I’m hoping to have read through the rest of the month!
