It’s time for my monthly Wrap Up and TBR post!
The aim of this reading game is to help me read more books and hopefully get on top of the ever-growing To Be Read pile. The more books I read, the more books I can buy. The more books I can buy, the more books I can read. It’s a win-win, right?

Book of the Month
Even though I have a 5* read this month, I’m awarding my book of the month accolade to Our House by Louise Candlish. A deliciously twisty thriller, with an incredibly unique and intriguing plot, this book had me hooked from the first chapter. I read this book during every free moment I had in October, and I honestly could not put it down. I think I drove my workmates mad with my constant screeching of “READ THIS BOOK!”.
Rosie Loves Jack by Mel Darbon | P.S I Still Love You by Jenny Han | Tilly and the Bookwanderers by Anna James
Even though I have so many books to read by the end of this year, I was desperate to read Rosie Loves Jack by Mel Darbon and I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw it was available at my local library. Rosie Loves Jack is one of my most anticipated reads of 2018, and I cannot put into words how excited I am to read this book.
As soon as I finished To All The Boys I Loved Before, I immediately went online to reserve a copy of P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han at my local library. The second instalment in the To All The Boys trilogy, I can’t wait to be reunited with Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky once again. *swoons*.
Finally, another book that was high on my anticipated releases list is Tilly and the Bookwanderers by Anna James. After seeing countless glowing reviews, I couldn’t resist buying a copy for myself (and signing up to the new Waterstones loyalty card). As a big fan of Anna James, I have high hopes for her debut tale of bookish adventures.
What will you be reading in October?
