Sunday Post (135) / Stacking the Shelves (115)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Hello, Jackie here,

My TBR list for this month doesn’t include any scary or horror books. I’ve been considering rereading Frankenstein or The Hunchback of Notre Dame, but I really don’t want nightmares. I’m a chicken when it comes to horror novels. I can handle paranormal novels, but horror is a different story. Some books I’m planning to read this month:
1. Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy
2. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
3. The Rest of Us Just Lives Here by Patrick Ness
4. Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan
And maybe a couple of rereads. However, being a mood reader a TBR pile doesn’t really help, but it’s great to know what to read next instead of trying to figure out what I’m in the mood for. What’s on your October TBR list? Are we reading similar books?

STSmall_thumb25255B225255DStacking the Shelves post! Hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, Stacking the Shelves is a chance to showcase new books, ones checked out from the library, bought, won or received for review.

I’m waiting for a trip to the bookstore to pick up Rick Riordan’s new book on Tuesday and probably a couple of other books along the way. In the meanwhile, I’m just reading things I’ve gotten earlier this year.

  1. I don’t read horror novels either Jackie, though sometimes psychological thrillers can be worse… more likelihood of a happening upon a serial killer than a ghost or spirit etc… Of course, neither would be preferable!

  2. I’m looking forward to the new Riordan as it will be my first book of his I’ve read. Am very curious to see what bloggers think of Enjoy your reads this week!

  3. Horror is my least favorite genre but I’m with you on the paranormal. Six of Crows seems to be on everyone’s list. I didn’t like When A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness so I won’t be reading anything from him .

  4. Great TBR list! I just read Dumplin and I REALLY liked it!

  5. I’m like you I love paranormal but Horror is a no go I am such a chicken LOL I have heard a lot of people reading Dumplin lately. I hope you have a great week 🙂 Happy Reading.

  6. I enjoy psychological thrillers, but horror – not so much. I used to love Stephen King, but I can’t read his books anymore…
    Have a fantastic week ahead and happy reading, Jackie.

  7. I read The Catastrophic History of You and Me when it came out and loved it, I swear not enough people have read it!

  8. I am not a fan of horror novels or horror movies either! I’ll stick with the Charlie Brown Halloween special and call it good. 🙂 Have a great week.

  9. I’m not big on full on horror but it wouldn’t be the first time I have been reading a book late at night and it unexpectedly scares the death out of me!

    Have a good week!

    I don’t do horror or scary reads. The world is scary enough for me!

  11. I haven’t picked any horror books up this month so far but I do want to read a couple a bit closer to Halloween. I’ve never read anything that has scared me but it’s a whole other story when it comes to horror films! I’m a baby!

  12. I am also a bit of a chicken when it coems to horror, although I have read a few sightly scary books and watched some movies that were called horror and I didn’t find them as scary as I thought. I often find movies scarier than books.
    October is just going to be a normal month for me, although coincidentially I do have a few mystery and one thriller book review scheduled for this month. I am a mood reader so I usually don’t plan much more ahead than nothing at all or maybe my next read.

  13. Yesss I’m reading Magnus Chase at the moment and it’s such a fantastic book, really hilarious! I’ve read Dumplin and The Rest of Us Live here which were both enjoyable but average for me. Hope you enjoy them!

  14. I can’t wait to read the new Magnus Chase book. Hope you enjoy it when you get it.
