Spooky September Readathon: Mid-Month Check In

spookeh

It’s a little over halfway through the month, and I thought I would check in and see just how well I’m actually doing on sticking with a TBR and a readathon??? And I have to say that it’s been going swimmingly! That’s right – this girl is loving her spooky books and just needs to keep on going. Look at how well I’m doing on the scoreboard:

LOOK AT THIS. This girl has her reading groove back on, saved by the world of spooky books. However, it’s been kind of hit or mess a bit on how the books are actually shaping up? I feel like they are literally either AMAZING with five crowns or really quite meh. I haven’t had any disasters per say, but I have had quite a few two and three crowns. And I crushed a favorite book into a million little pieces like I usually do. I’ll be doing a full wrap up at the end of the month, but shall we take a quick peek at the highs and lows so far?

If you’re interested in joining in, you can find out more information here! I know many people are still thinking about doing it for October so it is not just for September!

The Highs

The Lows

I do have to say spooky Middle Grade really has been killing it. And I’m really in a bit of a lost direction for the rest of the month. I haven’t really been sticking to the TBR that I originally set as well as I planned to, but it seems to be going okay.

Here’s what I have left:

  • Mayor of Halloweentown: Hocus Pocus: The All New Sequel
  • What’s This: A Book with a mystery (which should be, like, the easiest read since it’s so general but I haven’t figured one out yet???)
  • Jack’s Lament: a book with sad overtones (this one I’m having the most struggles with – please help with any recs!)
  • Sally’s Song: a book with a love story (still waiting for Escaping from Houdiniiiiiiiiiiiii)

But overall, it seems to be going well, and I’m actually super super super shocked??? I totally thought this girl would be failing. But I actually have a new favorite to replace the one that I failed and I’m totally getting into the fall/Halloween vibes.

What do you think? Will you be joining in? How are you doing? Let’s discuss in the comments below!

  1. You’re smashing it! I think I’ll take part in October, though I have no idea what I’ll read yet – I’ve got so many books that I’ve been saving for this time of year so hopefully some of them will fit! 😀

  2. I wanted to do this so much but I’ve been suuuuper slacking on the blogging front. It’s been like 3 weeks and I haven’t even gotten to look at your posts. It’s a mess. I really just need to print out the graphic, figure out my life and attempt to at least get a few checked off? Congrats on all your progress though!
