Happy September, Bookwyrms! It’s just starting to cool down and I’m busy planning my posts for the next few months, especially for October but also edging into Winter… And so! Today’s post is another view into the metaphorical crystal ball.
A few hints:
- This Halloween Month, I’m going to focus on Feel-Good Frights — the kind of not-too-scary books you can lose yourself in when you want to put the real world (particularly the mind-melting nature of modern politics) on hold. Something really light and/or trashy-in-a-good-way. Like the Autumn equivalent of a beach read. Something that can make you laugh (look at me, sneaking in another #FaeFriday reference 😀 ). Obviously, Pan’s Labyrinth will NOT be one of those books. It WILL, however, be part of…
- My new self-created, tooootally original reading challenge: Pwning the TBR Pile or the Tsundoku Challenge! This is a very easy-going challenge with no hard deadline, and (unlike my fatal attempt to Finish ALL the Books) it will NOT block my way to new books. I’m just going to make a more pointed effort in 2021 to tackle the tower of books I’ve bought over the years and haven’t read or finished yet (Tsundoku is the Japanese word for that). This can, of course, be combined with any other reading challenges I choose to accept (in fact, I intend to prioritize my TBR pile when completing future reading prompts).

What are your Autumn/Winter reading plans? Any socially-distant ideas for Halloween merry-making?
