My October TBR

Hello book friends! This month I’m not only participating in blogtober, I’m also participating in a readathon! Why? Because apparently I hate having free time? Jokes aside, this particular readathon is all I’ve ever wanted our of readathons. It’s spooky, and you get to watch Tim Burton films. I mean come on, that basically screams “Simone, participate!”

Anyway, I wanted to share with you my TBR for this month!

So this particular readathon and scavenger hunt is hosted by the wonderful Tori Nicole (@Medusareads on Twitter) and honestly it took me a hot second to figure out my TBR. I’m such a mood reader, so we’ll see if this is going to work out, but the least I can do is try! I’m also working an ungodly amount and participating in Blogtober, I don’t know why I like to torture myself, but apparently that’s just my life right now. Either way, I’m going to do my best!
