Weekly Reads: October 22nd


I swear this month is out of control flying by. I’m at least a little happier about how many books I’ve read this month, but I have fallen behind on reviews. I’m going to try and play catch-up this week, so be prepared to see quite a few reviews coming your way!

This will be my last weekly reads post of the month because I’m jet setting off to warmer temperatures for a conference next week, which means no time for blogging. I’m currently debating on some pre-scheduled posts, but this week is a little nutty, so I’m not sure I’ll have the time to prep those.

This week I’m planning to read…

img_8916I’m kicking off the week with TRAP by Lilja Sigurdardottir, which is the second in her Reykjavik Noir Trilogy. I’m on tour for this lovely book, so I won’t be posting my review until Friday, but I’m making a premonition that this will be a must read recommendation from me!

I want to wrap up the month with some seasonal reads, so I’ll be picking up THE HALLOWEEN TREE by Ray Bradbury. I’ve only read short stories and Fahrenheit 451 by Bradbury, so I’m excited to try out some more of his work.

I will also be reading WE HAVE ALWAYS LIVED IN THE CASTLE by Shirley Jackson, which you may remember from my Top Ten Tuesday post about my Fall TBR. I have never tried out a Shirley Jackson title, but I knew I wanted to make this one an October read. I’m thinking THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE needs to get added to my reading mix ASAP because I really want to check out the new Netflix series.

Not pictured, but also making an appearance in my reading life this week is THE LIES WE TOLD, which you’ll remember as my audiobook from last week. I’m anticipating finishing up my listen tomorrow on my way home from work. I’ve really been loving this story and the narration is fantastic. Definitely looking forward to talking to my book club about it!

What are you reading this week? Have you read any of these titles?
