Booking Ahead: October 2020

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. I’ve mentioned it many times before, I know, but Readers Imbibing Peril (#RIPXV) is ongoing through the coming month so most of my reading this month will probably be for that event. Any excuse to select a spooky book or two. Actually, if anyone has any recommendations for good spooky books then feel free to let me know. My TBR list is massive but that doesn’t mean I can’t add more to it.

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

The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James – I’ve made a start on this one already and I have high hopes. There’s a creepy motel, possibly ghosts, definitely a disappearance or two, and a character determined to find some answers and her family’s past. Yes, ghosts, in a motel. Exciting!

Halloween Party by Agatha Christie – My recent reading of Endless Night wasn’t quite what I expected going into it, but this is Poirot, and I’ve not read a Poirot novel in quite a while now, so this one seems fitting for the time of year.

I’d also like to read something by Joe Hill and something by Stephen King. The books I’m thinking of at the moment are NOS4A2 and either Misery or Christine. At least two of these are pretty long so I’m not sure whether I’ll have chance to read any of all of them before the end of Readers Imbibing Peril.

I’ve probably chosen too many books here (again!), 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.
