Okay so this is *much* smaller than my usual tbr’s because October was a month. So this should be a nice short post!
If you want to see this in video format then I’ve linked my video, but if not then keep reading!
So the first book… that should’ve been read in October… is The Dying of the Light by Derek Landy! I just did *not* have time to get to this last month so I need to read it before the livestream in November!
And then the next book is Resurrection by Derek Landy which is the Skulduggery book that we’re supposed to be reading in November! This is the first book in season 2 so I’m super excited to re-read this for the first time and to see everyone else’s reactions!
Then I’m wanting to read Five Forget Mothers Day by Bruno Vincent… don’t judge me 😂 I just want to get the damn thing off of my tbr and it’s short!! This is a parody of the Famous Five books by Enid Blyton which I loved as a kid and these are super fun to blast through!
Another short book, and that’s Rogue Protocol by Martha Wells! This is the third book in the Murderbot Diaries which are all about an AI android which has overridden its governor protocol and actually has free will. I laugh out loud when I read these, they’re so damn good, and I adore them! I’m having to resist just picking this one up right now!
Last, but not least, I want to read part of a book. And that’s The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas. This is the book that I’m reading a chapter of each day, that fell by the wayside in October but I want to pick it up again cause I want to finish this before the end of 2021! I’m really enjoying it so far so it’ll be nice to get back into it!
And that’s all that’s on my official tbr! There are quite a few books that I was part the way through in October so unofficially I’d like to get through those and finish them, but we’ll see how things turn out and how busy I am.
What book are you most excited for in November? I think mine is Rogue Protocol!!
For me? Well this can range from nought-point-five femto seconds, to… over a decade 😅 today’s video is all about 5 (well okay 7) books that have been on my tbr for the longest. And these aren’t even the worst ones! I unhauled those!!
Which books have you had on your tbr for a stupid amount of time? Make me feel less alone!!
Another one. Another unhaul!!! I don’t quite know how I’ve managed it but with this unhaul and the previous two combined (check out the first one here, and the second one here) I’ve gotten rid of over 200 books from my shelves!!!
Of course as always this is wee sneak peek as always before this video goes live in an hours time on my channel.
I’ve got a feeling this video might not have the best retention time because it’s so long!! 😂😂 but I wanted to make sure I had a document of all the books I was unhauling. One final goodbye! Do you unhaul books? Do you keep them all? My dad gets rid of every single book just after he reads it!! Let me know!
We all know that the original covers are better… right??
Well apparently not! Some of these screen-adaptation covers are awful but some of them are surprisingly good! Use the link below for the standard sneak peek you get from my blog for the video going live in an hour!
What’s your favourite movie/film/tv cover that you think is better than the original? Or am I just barking mad? 😂
As a child I used to read a fare few children’s classics, but it took a while for me to get back into them as an adult. Today’s video is all about my favourite classics from childhood to adulthood and why I think you should read them!
Despite leaning towards the fantastical in my non-classic readings, within classics themselves I seem to lean into more of a contemporary angle which is really interesting! I’m not sure why that happens but as long as I’m enjoying what I’m reading I don’t mind!!
I’ve went all out this month!! Usually I just do a colour theme, and then this year I’ve been trying out a few different things here and there. Today? I got a load of different bits and bobs printed and stuck them down and I’m so happy with how it turned out!!
My Gothtober page is fully magnificent and wonderous, with as many skulls as I could get on the page as possible!!
And my absolute favourite page of them all? My habit tracker!! I just adore how the border turned out!! (and it was completely accidental as well!!)
The little spoops are just so cute!!

Do you have a journal? Whether for your daily life or for your reading? Let me know!!
Back in April I saw lots of people doing VEDA, Video Every Day in April, and it looked like a lot of fun! My birthday is in October so I thought it would be really fun to do this then. Now when I was planning this I didn’t think that I would be both moving house 100 miles away and moving job at the beginning of the month.
Regardless of this probably being a bad idea… I’m doing it anyways! So if you want to see my daily videos please do go check out my YouTube channel and subscribe!
I know I post here daily, and that I post about my videos when they go up. I won’t just be reposting my videos every day, because I know that would be really boring. But I also am using up a lot of creative energy for this challenge so I may have text versions of my videos as well as some book reviews.
Let me know how much of an idiot you think I am for doing this!!
