October TBR & 30-Day Reading Challenge

I am seriously behind in my reading challenges. According to Goodreads I’m 17 books behind my goal of 43. I know I’m not going to mak that goal, but I’m going to give it the ole college try; and get halfway through the 43, which is about 22 books.

I’ve decided to add a monthly TBR to my blog and a quarterly 30-day reading challenge.  I think it may help me stay on track. There are several ways to participate:

  • choose the books to read and just read,
  • go for a daily page count,
  • genre,
  • theme, etc

The bottom line is read whatever you want for 30 days.

I’m going with the daily page count and since it’s October I’m going to focus on my Horror novel-reading challenge TBR.

After tallying up the pages, over the next 30 days, I’ll read 58.7 pages per day for a total of 1761 pages. That’s doable, right?what’s on the October TBR?

Here is what’s on the October TBR?

    Ohh some good ones on here by the looks of it. I’ve only read Frankenstein on this list though. You should do a short, personal review of them at the end of the month and pick a favourite out of the ones you read and why. That would be interesting 😀

      Thanks, Katie for the suggestion. I was thinking about doing one post with mini reviews but I hadn’t thought about picking a favorite. 🤔

    Some of the classics for the month of Halloween, I see.

      Indeed. I was going to do another challenge but decided to get caught up on my horror novel reading challenge, and what better time to do that than Halloween. I can’t wait to get to Song of Dead Dreamer by Thomas Ligotti. I read a portion of one of his stories before I bought the book and was seriously creeped out, so I think I’ll wait until it gets closer to Halloween to read that one.

        I guess I’m doing some of the modern classics for Halloween. Sort of…. I am half way through Good Omens and next up is The Stand. Actually, despite being about a Biblical Armageddon, Good Omens is funny.
