Stumbling into October with a Week 2 TBR Pile

I haven’t been able to post on my blog for most of September. The world has not been great in that month (and in October as well). But, I am trying to pick up the pieces and try to organize my days a little more, even if all I want to do is sleep. Here is my TBR pile for Week 2 of October 2018.

TBR Pile Part 1: Because I am Stubborn

I started reading the 5th Wave way back in September and I disliked every second of it. It remains unclear if I dislike it because it is depressing or because I was/am in a bad headspace. Nevertheless, I intend on giving it more time to see if I can get invested in the story.

The other thing that I was reading was the second book in the Cairo trilogy by Naguib Mahfouz. I am not in too much of a hurry to read this one this week. Look at me trying to limit the unpleasant things I put myself through.

TBR Pile Part 2: Dreamy Halloween Spirit

Picking up Shiver’s sequel this week sounds like a nice idea. I do like Stiefvater’s writing, especially in this series because it is cuter and sweeter than her other books.

I may pick up Neil Gaiman’s Coraline, which would be my final unread book by him that is on my shelves. His adult stuff doesn’t sound like my jam. However, I am still interested in this middle-grade story.

TBR Pile Part 3: Who You Going to Call?

I need to pick up a mystery novel this week as well because I have been craving stories like that. Gail Carriger’s Changeless will be light and engaging. Judging by how much I enjoyed the first book in this series, I have high hopes.

TBR Pile Part 4: Miscellaneous 

I have a couple of possibilities if I do well with these books. I may read Projedy by Marie Lu. The other option is to read some of my grammar books.


As someone who is afraid of space and traveling in general, it's hilarious that I
Happy September to my peeps! After attempting to squish my library books and TBR into

  1. LOL I can so relate about the slump/negative headspace. I’ve been currently reading like 11 books because of the same reasons. I have DNFed quite a good chunk of them because I just can’t even. Just like that. It’s my life, I do what I want xD hahaha. I used to be a true non-DNFer, but I guess people change.

    I really do recommend some of Neil Gaiman’s adult stuff though! I didn’t feel like it was that much of a big jump from his middle grade stuff. Still really good! Just maybe a little darker, but definitely the same vibe. At least try Neverwhere.
