gothtober + october wrap up // november tbr

October has been amazing! Probably my best month for reading of 2021. Gothtober hosted by Hannah, Olivia, and Tish has been an absolute blast to take part in, and I’m already excited about next year! I also managed to squeeze in a few other reads on top of completing the prompts for the demon board – including my accidental tradition of rereading The Haunting of Hill House each October.

A new favourite from the month is Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand – it had me totally hooked, and it felt like so much was going on and I couldn’t wait for the next revelation. Another I’ll probably reread time and time again is The Woman in Black by Susan Hill – the book was pure vibes and absolutely perfect for this time of year! I also need to restart the tradition of telling ghost stories on Christmas Eve.

  1. Wow, you really had a great reading month! I’m glad you also enjoyed Dracula and Norse Mythology! I also listened to the audiobook of the latter, and Neil Gaiman could read out aloud anything, it would be interesting. 😂
    Hope you have a similarly great November!

About Me

Books and food enthusiast. I discovered a love for reading in my late teens, so you’ll see me catching up on older series quite often. I also love to travel around the UK, where I live, and picking up some crafty hobbies – I hope to share snippets of this amongst all the book content. Other interests include gaming, podcasts, drinking too much tea, and trying to personify autumn.
