TTT - 10 Books I Intended to Read Before Halloween

This top 10 weekly meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and can be found HERE.  Each week they focus on lists which cover various topics related to books and reading. 

For a lover of horror, Halloween is almost as good as Christmas (and in some cases, better).  So I feel it's only natural that I planned on reading a lot more horror books than I actually did.  That's not to say I'm not happy with what I read, but don't we bookworms always need more time!

So here are some books I really intended to read this Halloween season, but which didn't quite make it.





Of course I still plan on pushing The Rules of Magic and Truants to November and I vow to get to Hollywood Homicide before 2017 is through (because yes, I'm as sick of seeing it here on the blog as you must be).

  1. I have to give a shout out for Rules of Magic - I loved it so much - although I would just say it's not a scary story at all. Very 'feely'.

  2. Best laid plans and all that. :) Maybe your horror month can extend into November? It can be: horror books I'm thankful for. :)

    1. I real horror all year long but did really focus on it the past 2 months. I'll make time for these all eventually.

  3. Loved The Rules of Magic, although I wouldn't categorize it as "scary". Hexed is supposed to be super scary, though!

    1. I remember ordering Hex from Book Depository when it first came out because I couldn't get it in the US. You would think with all that work I would have read it by now.

  5. I only managed one horror book this month and that was a re-read of The Rats! I'm disappointed in myself but I did read a Game of Thrones novel so that is KIND of horror...umm..

    1. While it may not fit the horror genre, it's definitely scary so I think it fits.

  6. I haven't read any of those! I see a few I want to add to my TBR list though. Halloween is my favorite too and the horror/thriller/suspense genre is what I enjoy the most. Happy Halloween!!

    1. I like making lists better than I do sticking to them. I try though which I suppose is the best I can do.

  9. I can relate to not having read everything I hoped to for the season. And now I feel like I have to jump right into the Christmas reads without finishing what I wanted for the Halloween. Self-pressure, I know, but it's real.

    Rules of Magic is on my wish list. I am really looking forward to reading it. Hex and House of Ash sound really good as well! I hope you get to these when you are able!

    Have a great day!

  10. Rules of Magic is on my TBR though I know it's a prequel to Practical Magic and I haven't made up my mind which one to start with! Good luck getting to all of these! I have one of these lists too!

    1. I read Practical Magic years ago. I guess I would read it in the order of publication.

  12. There are a lot of books I intended to pick up this month, but didn't get to. But there's still next year!

  13. The Rules of Magic is one I have been thinking about reading, and they just got it Overdrive for my library today. So, chances are looking better than ever. Hope you get to some of these soon.

  14. I have lots of reading plans and they rarely work out. I don't think that I have any of these on my tbr list (yet) but I hope you can squeeze them in soon.

  15. I love reading Halloween type books through October, but it never seems to work out that way for me.
