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.
