October TBR

Posted September 28, 2023 / Book Lists, Features, TBR Lists / 1 Comment

My monthly TBR feature here shows my progress based on last month’s TBR, my plans for this month, and anything else I might be thinking about from a reading perspective. Sometimes I feature a little poll at the bottom so you guys can help me figure out a certain title I should read from a group of books.

October TBR

I was hoping to catch up on library books in September because I spent most of August reading my ARCs. I didn’t totally succeed at that but I was able to return some books I knew I wouldn’t read, as well as read two of them (KOA and DROWNING). I have a more manageable stack of books now.

Series October

As I mentioned, the past two months have been ~themed~ reading months for my TBR and the same is going to happen here. There are two major series I hope to read in October that I have been thinking about all year. Here they are:


I absolutely loved the CARAVAL series but for some reason kept putting off her companion series, ONCE UPON A BROKEN HEART. The final book in the trilogy comes out in October, so I thought it would be the perfect time to binge read all three books in a row. I have the first two and preordered the final one, plus the audiobooks are on Scribd. The other series (this one has four books) I’m hoping to fully bang out in October is THE NATURALS. I’ve also loved JLB for years and years; this series has been on my list for a long time… then they redid the covers and rereleased the books, and they’ve been taking booktube by storm. I preordered the new covers and hope to read all of them in this month as well. So between these two series, I’ll read 7 books in the month of October (one better than September…).

Library Books

Here are all of the books I currently have out from the library! I hope to get to at least one or two of them in October but all of the books in the series I mention above are physical copies, so I’m not sure how many other physical books I’ll read… more likely going to read Kindle books otherwise.

Grab Bag: Other, New, and Recent


I decided to be honest with myself and remove some books that I do want to read at some point but probably won’t get to in October. The most exciting new release (MIDNIGHT IS THE DARKEST HOUR) is down here in hopes I can get my hands on it in October. Not sure I want to buy it because I’ve only read one of Winstead’s mystery books and I’m trying to be careful about what I add to my shelves. I moved THE WAKE-UP CALL down here because it’s a September review copy I definitely want to read – I love Beth O’Leary! I preordered SUDDENLY A MURDER and JUST ANOTHER MISSING PERSON so those are top priorities for me. MY MURDER has been on my anticipated list for a while so I keep including it here.
