Thriller September Reads| TBR | Books

Halloween is already in my air. Two days of weather in the 60s and I’m already gearing up for my favorite season, the haunted season. Random Kat Facts: I didn’t grow up in the US so Halloween was just a TV thing to me but ohhh how I wished I could be part of that world. Growing up on movies like Beetlejuice, Hocus Pocus and a ton of horror movies which I wasn’t allowed to watch. Well…fast forward a few years and here I am. Both my kids and I are excited about it. Have any of you started picking out costumes as yet? We haven’t but my daughter is bouncing around ideas. I feel like she’s leaning towards Trolls.

Without further ado, let me explain my Thriller September theme for reading. I read most genres but I pick and choose what I’m reading based on what vibrations I’m getting, and recently I’ve been feeling a thriller/horror binge.

Here’s what I have in mind for my upcoming reads:

Current reads: IT by Stephen King – As with any movie based on a book, I read the book just before the movie comes out.

  • Great Tales of Terror by HP Lovecraft – I’ve always wanted to read Lovecraft because Stephen King, whom I absolutely adore has spoken about being influenced by Lovecraft. I love that it’s a huge volume with a lot to offer, can’t wait to get into it.
  • Penny Dreadfuls (Sensational Tales of Terror) – Compiled by Stefan Dziemianowicz
  • Kingdom Keepers II (Disney at Dawn) – Ridley Pearson
  • End of Innocence – Stephen King
  • Lives of the Mayfair Witches – Anne Rice

Most of these are what I’ve had on my TBR for the longest while. If you have any scary reading suggestions, leave them in a comment!

Happy Reading!

Current Reads and more on my TBR list

I am currently reading Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens as part of my childhood read-overs project. Another one I want to revisit soon is Moby Dick. I really want to experience these books as an adult to see how I feel about them after two decades or so.

In my earlier post, I talked about how Miss Peregrine’s dragged on for three weeks because it didn’t capture my attention so hopefully I get to cross one or two books off my May TBR list. Being stuck on one book for three weeks doesn’t help my yearly book challenge either. But I’m not a total failure quite yet…we still have some time.

  1. The Dark Artifices by Casandra Clare
  2. Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard Books 1 & 2
  3. Holiday Wishes – Nora Roberts
  4. Birthright – Nora Roberts

Please don’t judge my strange tastes in books. I love a good romance or contemporary as well 🙂
