It's that time again - how exactly has this year gone so fast that I'm suddenly planning October's to read list (although, on that note - we're definitely getting much closer to it being acceptable to have daily pumpkin spice loaf and it's almost acceptable to get my halloween on)? Anyway, the Lush Halloween collection is out, I've seen a couple of people wearing scarves and it's time to talk about what books that I'll be reading this Halloween month. Ahem, I mean October.
1: Flawed - Cecilia Ahern
Last month I read The Marble Collector by Cecilia Ahern and absolutely loved it so when I saw this, I was super excited to see how her first young adult novel would measure up. From what I can gather from the somewhat lacking blurb, this is a book that is about a society wherein everyone has to be perfect, and the one girl who can't fit into the ideal. It sounds (and looks) creepy and I'm actually really excited to give it a go, I have high hopes now I've fallen back in love with Cecilia Ahern.
2: Maestra - L.S. Hilton
I'm really not sure what this book is about except I know there's a violent murder and it's got an 18+ rating, which I've just never seen on a book before. I can't really comment on the story because I have literally no idea, the blurb is honestly about three sentences long - but it looks creepy and the comments on the front of the book seem to suggest it'll be pretty good; so we'll see!
3: The Girl In The Spider's Web - David Lagercrantz
I'm nervous about this. Seriously, so nervous. I love the original Millennium series, I read The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo four times on one holiday, and I'm excited about the fact that this might continue the series - but, I'm also really nervous that this just isn't going to live up to the Stieg Larsson legacy. This is a few years down the line from the original novels and it seems a lot more modern than the other books, and I am excited to see how it measures up; but I'll be very disappointed if it doesn't do well, I'm afraid.
4: The Bazaar Of Bad Dreams - Stephen King
Oh come on, you knew that my halloween loving soul was going to have a book in here to satisfy it's dark side, and so I of course picked Stephen King. I've had this for ages to be honest, but now seems like the perfect time to read it - especially with us being into the spookiest month of the year. These are a collection of short stories, some published prior to this and some new; I'm excited to read them and update you on my favourites - here's hoping Stephen King pulls through for me.
What are you reading this month?
