Hello again honeybees! It’s a time to be alive right now. I’m smack dab in the middle of adulting and reading (and by extension: blogging) has gotten kicked aside unfortunately. I’m hoping to keep my goals light while I ease into my first semester of university, but I also want to make a conscious effort to be reading and blogging.
It’s also spooky season!! Ah, I’m so excited! The absolute best time of the year in my not so humble opinion. I planned out my TBR with ~Notion~ and I’m hoping for the best!
To Be Read
Black Sun by Rebecca Roanhorse
This is being published on October 13th I believe. It’s an Indigenous Fantasy (couldn’t find any info on it being Own Voices) that I was on a tour for. I am no longer working with the tour company but I do want to try to help boost this book. It’s a bit of a chunker from what I’ve seen of the physical arcs so I’m not very confident I’ll be able to finish by publication, but I must try.
Sia Martinez and the Moonlit Beginning of Everything by Raquel Vasquez Gilliland
I got an arc of this on Netgalley before it was released in August. Then in August I got the physical arc through Libro.fm in the hopes that it would be easier for me to read (I was experiencing a really bad flare up). Life kind of piled on and I forgot about it. I read a few chapters of this book and it was really enjoyable, so I know I’ll like it once I can finally get to it.
Apple by Eric Gansworth
I got this arc through Levine Querido (thank you so much to them!) and I was honestly surprised by how intrigued I became with it upon inspection. Releasing October 6th, this is an Indigenous (site) novel in verse. I’ve already started reading this and I’m finding it super intriguing. More on this later.
Sasha Masha by Agnes Borbinsky
I’m really excited HarperCollins sent me an e-arc of this book! It comes out on November 9th and is about a genderqueer person with a queer love story (super broad, I know, but I hate going into books knowing all about them). I can’t wait to share my OV review with you!
The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware
This is another one that I’ve already started listening to and I’m super interested in it. It hasn’t completely grabbed my attention, but I think this might really freak me out once I get into it (at least I hope so).
A Beautifully Foolish Endeavor by Hank Green
I’ve had this on hold at my library foreverrr. My hold is supposed to be up in the middle/ end of the month so I’m hopeful that I can get to it this month. The first book blew me away a bit so if this sequel flops, I’ll be pretty bummed.
- Finish three books. I’ve been in a bit of a slump for awhile so this might prove to be especially difficult. We’ll see.
- Get back to consistent Instagram posting. My goal is to hit 5k by my birthday (next month) and that won’t come without work on my end. I think I can do it, I just need to put more effort into my content.
- Post on my blog at least twice a week. I’ve actually almost kept this goal up, which is very surprising. I love my blog with a passion and my blogiversary is coming up so I want to put a little more effort in.
That’s it for my late TBR! What are you reading this month? What are your goals? How’s the month treating you so far? Also, if you celebrate, what are you dressing up as for Halloween?
I’m going to be a hippie 🙂 Trippy, right?
Thank you for reading! I hope you enjoyed this post. Please consider following for more posts like this! You can also find me on Instagram, Twitter, and Goodreads, buy me a cup of coffee on ko-fi. Thanks again for reading! Bye for now honeybees.
