Booking Ahead: October 2019

Booking Ahead is an opportunity to glance through my never-ending TBR list/pile and select a few potential reads for the coming month. If I’m not reading books I love talking about books I’d like to read, so this post is a perfect excuse to do just that.

It’s time to take another look at my TBR pile and select some reads for October.  Readers Imbibing Peril (#RIPXIV) is ongoing through the coming month so once again I’ll be selecting at least some potential reads for the reading challenge. A couple of last month’s selections will no doubt appear again this time around!

Here’s a selection of what I’m hoping to read over the next month…

New Books

The Institute by Stephen King – My current read. It’s really good and I can’t wait to get back to it.

Bone China by Laura Purcell – I’m looking forward to this one having enjoyed both of Laura Purcell’s other books.

A Little Hatred by Joe Abercrombie

The Testaments by Margaret Atwood

Books from the Backlist

NOS4A2 by Joe Hill – I’ve had this book my my TBR list for so long, and Readers Imbibing Peril is the perfect opportunity to finally read it (hopefully!).

I’ve probably chosen too many books here, but I’ll give it a go and see now I get on.

What are you hoping to read this month? Have you read of my picks, and if so what did you think?
See you again next month for another Booking Ahead.

    I’d like to see your thoughts on the Atwood – it’s a book I’d like to get to when my review books calm down a little.
    I love Laura Purcell – probably a bit strong given that I’ve read two books, but, I enjoyed them so much and she writes gothic so well. I’ve read Bone China – I won’t spoil it for you. Her writing is gorgeous and she ramps up the gothic, not sure I loved the story quite as much as the first two but I think I perhaps have such high expectations so who knows.

      I really like Laura Purcell too. The Silent Companions was so good that so much reading later I can still remember scenes from that book. I can’t wait to see what Bone China is like 🙂
