It’s finally October and I LOVE OCTOBER and anything Halloween and Fall and SPOOKY! A little proof; I named one of my cats October, because she makes me think of Halloween with her coloring (mostly black with hints of orange and white). I also named my newest kitten Leaf, because she makes me think of Fall colors/and leaves changing colors. She’s white, orange, and black. 😛
I try to read spooky/Halloween vibe books in the month of October. I don’t always stick to my TBRs though, so this is my “unofficial” Halloweenie TBR. I am being OVER ambitious too, because I need to have a lot of options or there is a higher possibility that I won’t stick to my TBR. I also have other options not listed if I really wasn’t feeling any of these. Without further ado, here are the books on my “unofficial” Halloweenie TBR…
Final Girls by Riley Sager
Catacomb by Madeleine Roux
The Asylum Novellas by Madeleine Roux
The Hollow Girl by Hillary Monahan
The Outside by Laura Bickle
And the Trees Crept In by Dawn Kurtagich
Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs
My Best Friend’s Exorcism by Grady Hendrix
Welcome to the Dark House by Laurie Faria Stolarz
The Girl from the Well by Rin Chupeco
BOOKS NOT PICTURED:
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving
A lot of these were on past Halloweenie TBRs, but I never got around to reading them in 2015 or last year (2016). I think last year I actually only read two books that were on my TBR of nine, LOL. We’ll see how I do this year. There are also a couple books that I already started that I want to also try to finish this month, so I may start with these two first and then move onto my Halloween themed TBR. Those books are:
Invictus by Ryan Graudin
They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera
Have you read any of the books on my October TBR? What do you plan to read in October? Let me know and feel free to link me to your posts if you have one! 🙂
I don’t want to leave out my other furbabies, so here is my third cat ColbyJack. He’s the oldest of the kitties. And my pup Dax; he’s the oldest of them all.
Random picture of this cute little jack-o-lantern decoration I got. I am obsessed with Halloween decor.

October is my favorite month too 🙂 Not really because it’s Halloween (although that’s fun too) but because there’s such an Autumn ambience in the air. I love it. Great list! I also started reading some scary reads this month 🙂
I wish Florida had more of an Autumn feel to it, haha. It’s forever hot here haha. But I love the holiday months though, especially decorating. Thank you! Perfect time to get those spooky books read. 🙂
Oh that’s so funny I actually moved out of Florida to Pennsylvania about a year ago. I couldn’t stand all that heat anymore! ☀️☀️☀️
I’ve been interested in almost every title you have in your TBR, I’ll be looking forward for your thoughts on it. Happy Halloween Reading 💕🎃
That’s awesome! 🙂 Glad you’re interested in almost all the books on my list. I can’t wait to finally dive into them. Thank you! Happy Halloween reading to you as well! 🙂
Great TBR line up!! Final Girls is a good one to read this time of year. I hope you enjoy it. I love your kitties!!!
Thank you! Super stoked to get around to reading these spooky reads. I can’t wait to read Final Girls. It sounds so freaking good! 🙂
Great list of books! I still have yet to read Peculiar Children series. I also want to read The Final Girl. Have you read any on your list?
Thank you! I haven’t had the chance to read any of the books on my list yet, but hopefully this month I’ll get around to reading some of them.
Your pets are so cute! Love their names as well 🙂 You can check out my September Book Haul here: https://daydreamingroux.com/2017/10/03/september-book-haul/
Thank you 🙂
Great list!! The cover of Welcome to the Dark House looks awesome! I read her book, Shutter, last year and liked it so I’ll definitely have to add this to my TBR.
I would also like to read And the Trees Crept In this month.
I think I have Shutter on my Goodreads TBR. I’ve had Welcome to the Dark House since like 2015 I think LOL. Let’s see if I finally read it this year. I hope I like And the Trees Crept In. I wasn’t a big fan of her other book.
Your kitties are gorgeous as well as Dax! I can’t believe how big Leaf is getting… And it so good to see October finally made friends with her! ❤ Love your Halloween TBR; the Asylum series is very entertaining and I'm looking forward to continue the Miss Peregrine's series as well.
Thank you! I can’t believe how fast Leaf is growing. Seriously! She was so freaking tiny when we found her. October and Leaf are now besties, which is awesome. I’m so glad October finally warmed up to her. I can’t wait to read all of these spooky books! I love the Asylum series, so I am excited to continue it. Just currently waiting for the two books to be delivered, ahhh! I want to start those as soon as I get them.
That’s awesome news! I’m glad to hear they are besties now… Jasmine never warmed up to Lila to that level but at least she now tolerates her haha.
I’m looking forward to spooky reads as well! In a way I wish I would have left the Asylum sequels for this month because they are perfect for Halloween. 😀
