Thrills & Homework: Fall Reading Recommendations

Autumn calls for plenty of sweaters, pumpkin-spice treats, and ALL the books, as always. As many of you know, I’m a huge mood reader.

Today I’m going to be sharing my fall reading recs based on these categories, as well as some books that fall vibes on my TBR.

KoA and Reading Plans: October TBR

To your disbelief and mine, I’m back with another TBR! While I think I’ll always be a mood reader, there are a few books that I know I want to get to before the end of 2018- and there’s no way my homework is stopping me from doing so. With Halloween approaching,  I’m craving some must-read fantasy (dark or light vibes welcome) and I wouldn’t be Fangirl Fury with at least 1 contemporary read.

My biggest debate that I’ve had while creating my October TBR is thinking about when I’m going to read Sarah J. Maas’s Kingdom of Ash, which comes out on October 23rd. Not only is KoA the final book in the Throne of Glass series, but it’s the longest SJM book at 992 PAGES. And yes, I’m already trying to figure out how I’m going to fit it on my bookshelf. I would of course love to read KoA as seen as it comes out, and while I do set aside time to read at school, I want to give it my undivided attention during my Thanksgiving or winter break…. Except I need to know what happens and I REFUSE to be spoiled. Any advice is much appreciated.
