Ten Books on My Fall 2021 To-read List

Books on My Fall 2021 To-read List

Well, this month I’m currently working on three readathons — mythothon, demonathon and magical readathon — and I think there’s going to be some run-over but I’ll leave those off this list. Some books I’d like to pick up once I’ve done with those are listed below. No doubt some of them will wind up worked into other readathon TBRs but they’re all books right at the top of my normal, ‘excited for’ TBR.

Monster Games 2021 TBR

October’s the perfect month for all things monster-themed, even better, this readathon is built around a personal favourite film of mine: Monsters University!

Just like in the film, we’ll join a team (or rather frat or sorority really, I guess?) and compete across five Scare Games challenges to see who make the scariest Monster and the best candidate for joining Monsters Inc upon graduation. Although all teams do the same 5 games, each team has their own version of the prompts.

I’m revisiting my teen years, and joining the moody-looking goth girls on Team HSS.

Top 5 Books at Schools and Academies

This Top 5 series was a weekly meme created by Amanda @ Devouring Books. Although this post is inspired by Devouring Books, this prompt is of my own devising and not officially one of Amanda’s suggestion

Each week I’ll pick 5 books featuring the common theme provided. These might be books I’ve read, or ones that are still on my TBR. I’ll note [TBR] beside any I’ve not actually read myself.

Victober 2021 TBR

Autumn means Victober (the Victorian literature readathon)! I love this readathon, which feels as much a part of it ‘officially’ becoming autumn as the darker nights and Halloween decorations do. I read so few classics during the rest of the year, but I always enjoy what I pick up during this event, so I’ve no idea why I don’t make more effort year-round? I think it’s maybe just that the Victober hosts and community are so lovely?

There’s A LOT of October readathons I want to take part in this year, and Victober reads tend to be big and/or dense so I want to keep this on the realistic side. I have three books I really, really want to pick up, and then more of a ‘possibility pile’, to pick from if I can squeeze anything else in at the end.

There are 4 reading prompts, along with a read aloud challenge and a group book. I think my three choice could fill most of the prompts, but since prompts are optional in this readathon, I’m just going to focus on the books themselves, and read the books I’ve been eyeing up for months.
