September Faves and October TBR

I know I say this every single month, but I cannot believe another month is drawing to an end! We're already entering the last three months of the year! I'm experiencing this weird paradox where time is simultaneously dragging and flying as I near graduation in December. Anyway, here are our favorite reads from September and the books we're most looking forward to in October...

September Favorites

Jana says...

Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco: This was such a beautiful, creepy, and romantic story! It takes place at Dracula's castle in December, and it's so atmospheric and amazing. Kerri's writing is beautiful. I loved it a million times more than Stalking Jack the Ripper!

How to Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran: It took me a while, but I finally finished this great collection of essays. Moran writes with such pointed humor that even when she talks about the inequalities and unfairnesses that should break my heart, I walk away with a smile and some hope. I have one more collection of essays by Moran--Moranifesto--and then she needs to get cracking on publishing some more. :)

October TBR

Renegades by Marissa Meyer: I'm on the blog tour at the end of the month, and I'm so excited to read Marissa's new book!

Lori says...

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley: Fiction hasn't so much been my jam lately because my time to read is limited. So I'm opting for something short. I even cheated by starting this on September 30. I'm looking forward to reading about this exploration of humanity and feelings of isolation and loneliness.


  1. Can't wait to see what you think of Renegades that is one that I am super excited about. It sounds so good and I love Marissa Meyer. Hunting Prince Dracula is one that I have on my list too. I love anything to do with Dracula. I own Stalking Jack the Ripper but haven't gotten to read it yet. Hope you have a great week, and happy reading!

  2. These look very interesting - haven't read them.
    Here's my lists:

  3. Sound like fun and interesting choices.

    I've read Frankenstein before and found it to be a lot of fun, though definitely different than horror pop-culture would lead you to expect (from your comment you're already aware of the different tone and themes).

    I'll have to check out some of the others you point out.
