OWNtober / October TBR

OWNtober

It’s time! It’s finally time! OWNTOBER! A month of focusing on the books you’ve owned for ages – or maybe not that long – and finally kicking them off your TBR! I’ve been looking forward to this for a while now, simply because I also use this as a month of mood-reading – most of the time.. Of course, I also have some other books I’d like to get to – hi ARC’s – but.. still trying to focus on the ones I owned prior 2018 most.

Yup, you’ve read that right. I’ve chosen to not only focus on books I own, but to go more specific and focus on the ones I bought before this year started. Why? Well.. At the start of the year, my boyfriend challenged me to read 75 books of the ones I owned before 2018. I’m not even close to reaching that goal. I got some catching up to do for sure! Which is why.. I put the extra restriction up. Let’s just hope I stick to it.. 

OWNtober books I’d like to read!

Goddess of the Sea (Goddess Summoning, #1)The Art of Baking BlindUnder the Eye of the Clock: The Life Story of Christopher NolanThe Book ThiefIt
Odd & TrueShiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #1)Linger (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #2)Forever (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #3)Sinner (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #4)

As you might know, IT is on this because I’m also hosting a readalong this month – apart from this challenge. The goal? To read the monster that is IT and get it off my TBR! Let’s hope we manage..
If any of you want to join us, just say so and I’ll add you to the Twitter-group chat!
I’m also planning on joining the Charms: Extra Credit – which is part of the Magical Readathon, but more on that later today so keep an eye out for that post as well!

Other books that might tempt me – but are not prior-2018 TBR

A Thousand Beginnings and EndingsWildcard (Warcross #2)Escaping from Houdini (Stalking Jack the Ripper, #3)Ace of Shades (The Shadow Game, #1)Lifel1k3 (Lifelike, #1)

This is pretty much me admitting I’m going to fail at focusing on prior-2018 books only because there are simply way too many books I got this year that I want to read asap… *cries*

My ARC-overview

Imber (Thanatos Trilogy #1)Oliver and Erica: When Friends become LoversOne New York Christmas
The Queen's WingEmpress of All SeasonsThe Girl KingThe Gilded Wolves (The Gilded Wolves, #1)

These are the ARC’s I currently have yet to read. Definitely a lot more than I had at first, but I went on a NetGalley-spree.. Sometimes you just can’t control it, can you?

  1. I probably should join in OWNtober, but I already have a decent TBR planned…though everything on my TBR is something I owned prior to October…so I guess technically I am joining in on OWNtober. lol.
