Top Five October Releases that Sound Absolutely Magical

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 suggestions. Todays official prompt is Magical Books and, to be fair, I think these all look absolutely magical in a the wonderful/delightful sense (so shhh, it totally counts.)

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.

Spoopathon is a brand new readathon and sound like a lot of fun.

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.
