I can’t believe September is already over, but I’m so ready for October reading! Every year I make an elaborate list of books I want to read and I can’t wait to share my massive stack with you all soon!

This month was full of some fantastic reads and some newly discovered favorites! ACE OF SPADES officially became my favorite book of the year so far and S.A. Cosby managed to keep me on the edge of my seat while also bringing me to tears yet again with RAZORBLADE TEARS! I also read some great horror reads this month. I’m so excited to finally have read a book from David Sodergren and will definitely be buying more of his books soon! I also finally got around to picking up the much hyped in the horror community novella, THINGS HAVE GOTTEN WORSE SINCE WE LAST SPOKE…holy crap! It’s such a unique and intense and propulsive little read!

Now the real challenge begins…what book do you kick off October with?!

Cheers to October reading! 🥂
