October 2022 TBR

September was a fast month, but it seemed to slow down with the kids being in school again. It was hot here, but the weather cooled down as September ended. It went from being in the ’90s to being in the ’60s within a week (or so it seems). I am enjoying it (not a fan of hot weather here).

This month’s list is rather short. I finished up September’s TBR early and got to work on October’s. Now, saying that I will have a bunch of requests….lol.

So, here’s this month’s TBR list. Let me know if you have read any of them!!

This was an author request. I figured that October would be a perfect month to read it. It certainly looks spooky!!
This was a pleasant surprise. I got it in the mail yesterday. I can’t wait to see where this book is going to take me (location-wise and other)
I have been waiting on this book for a little bit. The publisher prefers to mail paperbacks, and I should get mine next week.
A book from my TBR. I will not be reviewing.
Another from my TBR. Will not be reviewing.
