October TBR

Now I'm not someone who really sticks to my TBR's, but I'm trying to get better as I'm trying to read one hundred books this year, so far I have read 82, which is great, but not good enough. So this TBR is split into two parts because I have my normal TBR and then my Halloween TBR. One of the books in the Halloween part is a Contemporary and that's because it's part of Carrie Hope Fletchers Booktober.
So let me show you what I'm hoping to read.
Wake by Amanda Hocking.
This book has been on my TBR list for a couple of months because my friends have enjoyed it a lot, so I wanted to read it. It's about a girl called Gemma who loves taking late-night swims and one morning wakes up on the beach with a weird feeling. She's faster, stronger, and more beautiful than ever. I know it doesn't sound epic, but I'm taking part of NaNoWriMo and I'm writing a novel about Sirens, it's called Sirena and is the first in The Sirena Legacy.


Queen of Zombie Hearts by Gena Showalter.

This is the third and final book in The White Rabbit Chronicles and I'm both excited and sad about this book. I'm excited because I love the world that Gena has created, but I'm sad because it's ending. This series is about a girl called Alice Bell who loses her parents in a car accident and finds out that she's special. What's unique is that in this world you have to fight the zombies in the spirit realm. It's seriously addictive!


You Against Me by Jenny Downham.

I read Before I Die by Jenny Downham a while back and really enjoyed it, what Jenny writes about are quite heavy subjects and this one is no different. It focuses on a guy called Mickey who's sister has been raped. The guy gets sent down and Mickey's world starts to crumble when he falls in love with Ellie. Who's brother is the one who raped Mickey's sister. I'm hoping I'll like it, but I'm not one hundred percent sure I'll love it.


Lips Touch by Laini Taylor.

I received this to review from Hodder and it publishes on October 23rd. I'm so excited. This is three short stories published as a full book with illustrations done by Laini's husband Jim. The illustrations are beautiful and all three stories sound great! They're about Goblins and Demons, so perfect for the Halloween time. My review of Lips Touch will be uploaded on October 21st.


The Jewel by Amy Ewing.

This is a new release and one I am very excited about. In this Dystopian world, young girls are auctioned off to become surrogate for posh couples. Like most Young Adult books this one has a boy involved that crashes Juliet's world to the ground. My only hesitation is that I'm not sure this is a solid idea for a trilogy.


Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell.
This is a re-read for me, but this is the forth choice for Carrie's Booktober and I had to take part. I love Eleanor and Park so much. The story is both beauty
ful and heart-breaking, I cried so hard at this. If you haven't read this then it's about a girl called Eleanor who's overweight, ginger with wild curly hair who moves into this small village and instantly becomes the outcast. On her first day of school no one offers her a seat, until Park does. Park is Asian and loves comics and music. That first day is the start of Eleanor and Parks love story.
The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa.
A Dystopian world where Vampires use human as their blood cattle. I read over 100 pages a while back and stopped because my fingers reacted to the covers, but what I did read was amazing. So fast paced. Plus this is the perfect read for Halloween. Blood. Death. And Vampires. What more could you want?
Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake.
I can't really say much about this book since I don't know much about it myself. All I know is that Anna haunts this house and kills those that trespass the property, but Cas kills the dead and somehow they fall in love. This one is slightly creepy and has been warned that young readers should not read it, unless they are prepared for it. The cover is gorgeous though.
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.
This comes out as a movie on tomorrow and I am excited for it. I'll be reading the book first, of course, but I've heard so much good stuff about this novel. The book is about Nick Dunne who's wife Amy goes missing and he is the main suspect because of the journal that Amy kept. The way this is written looks amazing as it's told in days, so chapter one is in Nick's POV and it's on the day of Amy's disappearance. I may not get to this novel, but if I don't then I'll read it in November.
So.....yeah, those are what I plan to read. My main goal is to read just 6 of the books, but if I read all 8 then I would be very happy. All the books seem great and I'm super happy. What have you planned to read? Are you going to follow a list or are you just going to grab a book off your shelf? Let me know in the comments below.
