To Be Read: October 2022

October is going to be a very busy month for me. I’m starting a new job and I also have a ton of ARCs to get through, most of which are seasonal. Because of this, I have already decided that I’m mostly going to stick to graphic novels and audiobooks for the next few months. 

I was super ahead of myself at one point but unsurprisingly I’ve fallen behind when it matters most. Typical of me really but I’ve been through a lot lately. I’m really enjoying my festive ARCs so far but I’ve finished one out of twelve so I need to get a move on. 

Nightmare in Savannah by Lela Gwenn 

This has been sitting in my kindle library for months and months. I wanted to read it last month but then I thought it was more of an October read as it seems like it has spooky vibes. I’m not much of a seasonal reader in October but this year I’m trying new things. 

Synopsis: Alexa moves to Savannah to get away from her past. Too bad her past is a Google search away and her parent’s criminal acts quickly make her an outcast. Good thing Fae, Chloe, & Skye aren’t high on the social ladder and give Alexa a group to feel comfortable in. But after a long night of debauchery they transform into the town’s worst nightmare; Fairies.

Dark Room Etiquette by Robin Roe

*I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

This is the one non festive ARC I am allowing myself to read in October. It’s actually going to be my next read as soon as I finish my current one. As it is published October 11th I need to get a shift on if I want to post my review before then. 

I’m sure the change of genre with this book will allow me a quick read. I don’t know why this is something that happens to me, but it does. I’m not one for thrillers usually so I’m interested to see how creepy this will be.

Synopsis: Sixteen-year-old Sayers Wayte has everything—until he’s kidnapped by a man who tells him the privileged life he’s been living is based on a lie.

Trapped in a windowless room, without knowing why he’s been taken or how long the man plans to keep him shut away, Sayers faces a terrifying new reality. To survive, he must forget the world he once knew, and play the part his abductor has created for him.

But as time passes, the line between fact and fiction starts to blur, and Sayers begins to wonder if he can escape . . . before he loses himself.
