This month I am going to try have a rigid TBR to see if I can stay on track and read the books I plan to read. I have a couple of books I need to read this month and another couple I want to read this month, so I think this is the perfect month to start a TBR. Here is my October TBR!
History Is All You Left Me by Adam Sivera
“When Griffin’s first love and ex-boyfriend, Theo, dies in a drowning accident, his universe implodes. Even though Theo had moved to California for college and started seeing Jackson, Griffin never doubted Theo would come back to him when the time was right. But now, the future he’s been imagining for himself has gone far off course.”
I am going to an event with Adam Silvera towards the end of the month and want to read this before the event. It is the only Adam Silvera book I haven’t read yet. I love his stories and the way in which he writes. I am looking forward to see how much or if I enjoy this one!
Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli
“When it comes to drumming, Leah Burke is usually on beat—but real life isn’t always so rhythmic. An anomaly in her friend group, she’s the only child of a young, single mom, and her life is decidedly less privileged. She loves to draw but is too self-conscious to show it. And even though her mom knows she’s bisexual, she hasn’t mustered the courage to tell her friends—not even her openly gay BFF, Simon.”
Again I am going to an event with Becky Albertalli towards the end of the month and this is the only book by Becky I haven’t read read. I have heard many mixed reviews about this book and want to make a decision for myself about whether I like it or not. I love Becky’s work and cannot wait to see what this story holds.
The Other Side of Lost by Jessi Kirby
“Mari Turner’s life is perfect. That is, at least to her thousands of followers who have helped her become an internet starlet. But when she breaks down and posts a video confessing she’s been living a lie—that she isn’t the happy, in-love, inspirational online personality she’s been trying so hard to portray—it goes viral and she receives major backlash. To get away from it all, she makes an impulsive decision: to hike the entire John Muir trail. Mari and her late cousin, Bri, were supposed to do it together, to celebrate their shared eighteenth birthday. But that was before Mari got so wrapped up in her online world that she shut anyone out who questioned its worth—like Bri.”
I only found out about this book last week and instantly wanted to read it. It sounds like the perfect book for me to read at the minute. It seems to be rated very highly on Goodreads and I have heard a lot of things about Jessi Kirby’s writing so I cannot wait to read this book!
The Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada
“Catarina Agatta is a hacker. She can cripple mainframes and crash through firewalls, but that’s not what makes her special. In Cat’s world, people are implanted with technology to recode their DNA, allowing them to change their bodies in any way they want. And Cat happens to be a gene-hacking genius.”
I have been meaning to read this book for a long time now but with the sequel coming out next month I want to read it as soon as possible. I haven’t read a dystopian thriller in a long time and I feel like this one would be the perfect one to start next! I have heard so many good things about this book and I am excited to give it a read.
These are the books I am palling on reading in October and I cannot wait to get started. What are you planning on reading in October? Let me know in the comments below.
