I've been sucking lately at reading my own books because I have too many review books. Which is why I tremendously cut back on my review requesting. It has finally paid off and I have maybe one or two review books for October to read! The rest of the month is my oyster! Since it is October and even at the Contemporary Lovers group the theme is scary-ish. I decided to read all my mystery/thriller books that I've been wanting to read for ages. Here is a list of all the books I am planning to read and then ones that I don't own but hope to buy/borrow and read in October
Gone Girl: I recently bought Gone Girl because I've always been interested in reading it but time is running out because the movie is coming out in October. I have heard nothing but amazing reviews about it and I'm ready to finally pick up a Gillian Flynn mystery.
The Ruining: This book.. I've been told will mess up with your head, in a major way. Every single person that read it, including my sister and my friend, loved it and thought it was
Nearly Gone: A murder mystery with a math twist? my educational background side is so so intrigued by this and again, great reviews of it, especially from my sister.
Dangerous Girls: This book! Literally every single person has recommended it to me. I started recommending it to people in need of a good book that screws up with their mind and I haven't even read it yet! I unfortunately was spoiled for the ending (by accident), so I wanted to give it a couple of months before picking it up. I *almost* bought it two days ago but I have too many books so I might hold off this until the end of the month then buy the gorgeous new paperback!
I Hunt Killers: This isn't something I would read in a million years. I hate hate hate gore. I stay away from anything gore-esque and unfortunately this book has that. The Contemporary Lovers group chose this book (based on a poll) so I am going to have to read it. My plan is to skip on any gory scenes and to never eat anything while reading it.
Black Ice: I don't know if I'm cheating but Black Ice is actually a review book. However it is mystery and I'm so excited to pick it up. This will probably be the first book I read from this batch.
The last two are the Mara Dyer trilogy, or at least the first two books. I would like to reread these two in preparation for The Retribution of Mara Dyer. You guys, I have waited for almost 20 months for Retribution.. the wait was so torturous. I am so so scared for the last book and how she's planning on wrapping up the whole trilogy. This is one of my favorite series ever <3
Which books are you planning on reading for the month of October?
