My October 2017 TBR


So, September didn’t involve all that much reading because mostly we were moving to the new CFHW HQ. Boxes, boxes, boxes!

I did however read: The Call by Peadar O’Guillín, Rivers Of London: Body Work by Ben Aaronovitch, The House Of Doctor Dee by Peter Ackroyd, Life On The Refrigerator Door by Alice Kuipers.

October may not be all too busy book-wise either – we are all moved in but most definitely not all unpacked! Including most of the bookshelves – they are currently book boxes – so my TBR is going to involve the selection of books that I can get to.

(Books that count toward my BBC17 will be highlighted in PURPLE and will be fully reviewed later in the month as part of the challenge and the Book Club books will be highlighted in GREEN and will feature in my Book Club review post in May after our meeting.)

On the list are:

Book Club Book – To Be Announced Later.

Only Ever Yours by Louise O’Neill – A library book that just fell into my possesion when I took the kids’ books back. (That keeps happening, I blame the library…)

Artefacts & Other Stories by Rebecca Burns – Back in 2014 I reviewed another of Rebecca Burns’ short story collections & I have been invited to review her latest collection as well. I’m excited to get started.

Death In The Stars by Frances Brody – I’m taking part in the blog tour for this shiny new book, this month. (I will probably have read this by the time this post publishes!)

Night of Cake & Puppets by Laini Taylor (hardback, illustrated edition) –
This book is so beautiful, I’m so excited to read it!

The Handmaid’s tale by Margaret Atwood – I have been meaning to read this forever. Maybe now I finally will!

    1. Night of Cake and Puppets was easily a 5* – Only Ever Yours was brilliant too. Death In The Stars was good fun, I’m halfway through Artefacts and accidentally knocked Handmaids Tale off the list and started La Belle Sauvage instead!!
