October TBR

OK so welcome to my FAVOURITE time of year…spooky season 👻

Not only is October a perfect excuse to sit and read amazing horror/thriller books…it’s also BIRTHDAY MONTH FOR YA GAL 👸🏼🎉

So here is my TBR!

Salvation Station – Kathryn Schleich

I’ve had this ARC sat on my book trolley for some months now and I thought what better time than ever to tick it off my list!

Multiple story lines entwine throughout this compelling mystery, delving into the topics of murder, religious faith, and the inherent dangers in blindly accepting faith as truth. While Reverend Williams is swept up in his newfound success and plans for his wedding, Captain Turner can only hope that she and her team will catch the Hansens’ cunning killer—before more bodies surface.

The Tenant of Wildfell Hall – Ann Bronte

After visiting the Bronte Parsonage last month, Ann has become my favourite sister so I’m determined to read one of her most famous novels and of course I had to treat myself to this gorgeous Penguin English Library edition because well…look at it! And it will sit proudly in my ever-growing collection.

This is the story of a woman’s struggle for independence. Helen “Graham” has returned to Wildfell Hall in flight from a disastrous marriage. Exiled to the desolate moorland mansion, she adopts an assumed name and earns her living as a painter.

Molly’s Book Club – The Mothers by Brit Bennett

This is so exciting! Molly from Molly’s Book Club has started her very own book club haha! And our first pick is this one by the fabulous Brit Bennett!

Set within a contemporary black community in Southern California, Brit Bennett’s mesmerising first novel is an emotionally perceptive story about community, love, and ambition. It begins with a secret.

Beth’s Book Club – After The End by Clare Mackintosh

We’ve read a Clare Mackintosh book before and I absolutely adored it so I hold high hopes for this one and I hope it doesn’t let me down!

A gripping and propulsive exploration of love, marriage, parenthood, and the road not taken, After the End brings one unforgettable family from unimaginable loss to a surprising, satisfying, and redemptive ending and the life they are fated to find.

We are also reading In Five Years by Rebecca Serle too but my book didn’t come in time to feature in the photo shoot! In Five Years s an unforgettable love story that reminds us of the power of loyalty, friendship, and the unpredictable nature of destiny.

Let’s Get Classical Book Club – Dracula by Bram Stoker

MY FAVOURITE CLASSIC OF ALL TIME! I’m so glad it won and I’m so excited for the book club members who have never read Drac to read it for the first time! I absolutely love the Gothic genre and the very first time I read Dracula I thought, no book will ever compare to this!

I’m so looking forward to discussing it with the book club at the end of the month!

AND THERE WE HAVE IT!

Have a spook-tastic month everyone!
