There’s a lot going on this month, and many books I want to read. To keep me organized, I printed out an October calendar and planned out my reading. Not to say this is exactly how it will go down – I’m a mood reader at heart. But, I do love making lists and at this point in time these books have caught my fancy.
Spooky Reads for Halloween:
Ten by Gretchen McNeil – An homage to Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None.
This Dark Endeavour by Kenneth Oppel – A prequel to Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.
This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers – A zombie novel about 6 teenagers trying to survive the apocalypse.
The Spindlers by Lauren Oliver – A middle grade fantasy by one of my favorite authors.
Selections for The Literary Others: An LGBT Reading Event:
The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth – About a girl coming of age in the early 90s and discovering she’s attracted to girls. Her religious relatives send her to a “de-gaying” camp when they find out.
The Difference Between You and Me by Madeleine George – About a secret relationship between two opposites, told in alternating perspectives.
Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan – I’m a fan of Levithan but somehow haven’t read his first groundbreaking book.
Between You and Me by Marisa Calin – About a girl who has a crush on her teacher.
10. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater – Narrated by Will Patton. A mystery/supernatural blend that’s received some good reviews.
What are you looking forward to reading this month?
