October TBR Tower

i've seen this idea around for the past few months, and i'm finally getting my poop in a group enough to participate! YAY!

here's my to-read tower for October:

i've had my eyes on this prize since i had an opportunity to interview the author a couple months ago. 

there's a talking cat. need i say more?

this book is the end all be all (or so i've heard). i've promised to read it for awhile and it is going to happen, DAMNIT.

as an Arthurian legend dweeb, i am totally living a lie without having this book under my belt. that's about to change.

i've heard fabulous things AND it's a dystopian. so obviously i'm interested. plus, i dig GZ.

The Hole in the Wall by Lisa Rowe Fraustino
hidden worlds + middle grade audience = YES PLEASE.

The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey
a male-lead monster hunting teen...it's like Supernatural in book form. um, YES.

Kiss of Life by Daniel Waters
i dug the first book in the series, Generation Dead. i need to take the next step and find out what's the what with Phoebe and Adam!

A Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin
i just love this series, y'all. but they are HUGE books and take a long time to get through...but i love every minute of it. it's on the kindle.

what are you looking forward to reading in October? did you read and enjoy any of these books? lemme know in the comments!

Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.


  1. I've read a few of these.

    First The Monstrumologist is so good if you would like your YA served with a side of intelligence.

    Second All These Things I've Done is full of awesome. And I know not everyone loved it, but I did and I think that's solid.

    Third, The Once And Future King is great if you don't have the attention span of a gnat. I loved it, but I love long and 'boring' books with lots and lots of details.


  2. OMG and how the hell could I forget Plain Kate. You like fantasy. Therefore you will love the everloving hell out of Plain Kate. It's full of magic and carvers and a talking cat and tears and happiness and awesome awesome awesome. FYI I am totally spazing out right now over this book. READ IT NOW!

  3. Ummm...I still haven't read Perks yet. UGH! I will read it! I will!

  4. i want to fit The Monstrumologist into my life so bad i can't stand it, especially with all the publisher stuff with Yancey lately. gotta show my support, ya know?

    since i'm here, though, april is making plain kate sound like chocolate cheesecake and coffee, except better. heck, they all look good. but april is seriously talking that book up.

    i so admire all of you that can be organized enough to DECIDE what you're gonna read that far enough in advance. that would make me FALL OVER and draw my last breath with anxiety. i could NEVER do it. NEVER. i know what i am currently reading, and i know that i have some stuff on my calendar, but as soon as i write it down i make sure to forget it. i may be able to read more than one book at a time--and do a daggum good job of it--but i cannot predict what is next at all. so ROCK ON, you are awesome.


  5. Great book stack...
    Plain Kate is wonderful - how I wish my cats could talk, though all they would probably say is "food?" "FOOD!"!
    T.H. White and The Once and Future King are in my desert island stack.
    Perks of Being a Wallflower is good, but I kept thinking about Holden Caulfield when I read it.

  6. I loved the Generation Dead series. I haven't really heard that many people talk about it, but it's the series that turned me on to zombies. I have crazy love for them and it's all thanks to those books :]

  7. thanks for the insight, y'all!


Hey you! What do you have to say?
