October 2020 TBR

Salutations friends! October is here and I’m so excited! There’s so much happening during the month of October and I’m just ready to curl up in a cozy blanket, drink some hot tea, and watch my favorite spooky movies. Also, this is usually the time of year where I’m hyperfunctioning. I tend to pack a lot into my schedule (personal and reading wise), birthdays and holidays start popping up, and my sleep schedule tends to be nonexistent. Despite all of that, I’m hoping my reading for the month of October is still going to be amazing, I’m hoping for some five star reads, and I have a special project, that I’ve kept top secret, hopefully being revealed during this month. I’m truly excited to see what October has in store for me! πŸŽƒ

🍁 Currently Reading 🍁

🍁 Ghost Squad by Claribel A. Ortega
April 7th, 2020 by Scholastic Press
Buddy Read with Kayla from Books and Blends 🧑

I’ve really been enjoying this middle grade. It’s got the right amount of spooky, cozy vibes and there’s cats! I love books with cats! Plus, the family bonds and content in the book truly warm my heart, and makes me feel so soft, missing my own family. It’s just a precious spooky read so far!

🍁 October TBR 🍁

🍁 Sweet On You: A Filipino Christmas romance by Carla de Guzman
October 19th, 2020 by Carina Press
ARC provided by NetGalley and HARLEQUIN – Carina Press in exchange for an honest review! 

This sounds like the cutest read and I’m so excited to have an earc of this! I really enjoy books that involve cafe settings and baristas. Plus, the love interest is suppose to be a baker and I’m truly hoping we see them come together with their businesses!

🍁 Slasher Girls & Monster Boys by April Genevieve Tucholke
September 6th, 2016 by Speak

I’ve had this on my backlist for a few years now and I’m hoping to finally read this during the month of October. This sounds like a perfect read for spooky season. With so many authors I recognize and one of my dear friends recommending this book to me, I can’t wait to see the stories hidden within these pages!

🍁 His Hideous Hearts by Dahlia Adler
September 10th, 2019 by by Flatiron Books

Edgar Allan Poe is one of my favorite poets and I know he’s one of the most commonly referenced writers during spooky season, but I have always loved Poe’s work. So when I heard there was a retelling anthology out, I had to snag a copy. So, I’m keeping my finger crossed this spooky season that I can read it during the month of October.

🍁 Hollow Kingdom by Kira Jane Buxton
August 6th, 2019 by Grand Central Publishing

Another book that sounds absolutely amazing and a book that was gifted to me by my spouse. This sounds so good, has a unique perspective (one I don’t think has been written from till this book), and it’s supposed to be filled with humorous moments!

🍁 Capturing the Devil (Stalking Jack the Ripper, #4) by Kerri Maniscalco
September 10th, 2019 by JIMMY Patterson

Oh the shame! Can we just pretend this isn’t really on my tbr for this month? I’ve been meaning to read this book ever since it released. Unfortunately, I’ve been avoiding this conclusion because I’m not ready for the reading hangover this book is going to put me in. However, this is one of the five books I’d like to read before the end of the year and I really need to get it read!

🍁 Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
June 30th, 2020 by Del Rey
Dragons & Tea Book Club October Pick πŸ‰

I’m so excited for this book! Everyone I know has really been loving this book, recommending it to me, and even though I’m not a big horror/thriller reader, I want to read this before I start placing this in the hands of those that I love and cherish.

🍁 Strange Grace by Tessa Gratton
September 18th, 2018 by Margaret K. McElderry Books
Buddy Read with Robin at Paperbacks and Planners 🧑

I’ve had this book on my backlist for a year and it’s only recently that someone told me there’s demons in this book. And so me being a lover of books with demons, I was screaming, “Hell yeah!” I’ve heard only good things about this book and I’m so excited to be buddy reading this book with my friend, Robin.

🍁 Ninth House (Alex Stern, #1) by Leigh Bardugo
October 8th, 2019 by Flatiron Books
Buddy Read with Robin at Paperbacks and Planners 🧑

Another buddy read with the lovely Robin! I have been looking for someone to buddy read Ninth House with. I’ve heard so much through the grapevine about this book that I didn’t want to pick it up unless I was buddy reading it with someone. Robin being a lovely person, agreed to put this off till October so we could buddy read it together. I’m so grateful for her and I’m excited I get to read this with her.

🍁 Readathons 🍁

As you know, Latinx Heritage month is still continuing during the month of October. The last day is October 24th. I’m currently participating in the Latinx Book Bingo and after I finish Ghost Squad, I should have bingo on the board. The Latinxathon and Latinx Book Club are still taking place during the month of October, as well.


I know there’s a few spooky readathons happening during October, but I wanted to highlight Fortnight Frights Readathon (which runs from Oct. 18th – Oct. 31st), hosted by Seji at The Artisan Geek. Seji has put so much time and effort into this readathon, they made an amazing announcement video, and can find all the announcement posts on the Fortnight Frights Twitter. I’m hoping to participate myself and I wanted to encourage you all to do the same.

Okay, Chapterlings! I have a pretty ambitious tbr for the month of October and it’s probably going to be a very hectic month, to say the least. This doesn’t even show all of the books I’m hoping to read for this month. There’s so many books I’d love to read, share my thoughts on, or buddy read with fellow readers. Spooky season is truly my favorite time of year even though it’s so brief, I want to savor it as much as I possibly can. What are your plans for the Spooky season? What books do you have planned for your tbr? Come chat with me about it in the comments below! Until next time, keep it spooky, I love you! 🧑


Monthly TBR

July 2020 TBR

Salutations Chapterlings! Yes, I’m putting myself through it once again! July is here and it’s coming for me in every which way. For starters, my month is going to be kicking off with a full packed schedule. On July 3rd, 2020 I’ll be guest appearing on Bethany’s Twilight/New Moon panel to talk about the Indigenous representation, then I’ll be celebrating my spouse’s birthday on the weekend so expect me to be a ghost during that time, and then at some point (and you didn’t here this from me) Michelle from Thor Wants Another Letter wants to hold a Q&A with Brody from Et tu, Brody? and myself. So many things are happening this month. I also have some buddy reads that are currently in the works with some incredible people. As well as, OMG She’s Indigenous has announced our July pick (you can find the details down below)! Plus, I have some arcs I’m really looking forward to reading.

Now for the shark in the water… The 2020 Reading Rush is here, once again! So, I barely, just barely survived the Stay Home Reading Rush. My last minute scrambling was a hot mess, but I survived, somehow! Now, you would think I learned my lesson from last year and the Stay Home Reading Rush, but we have all concluded that I’m a glutton for punishment and of course those badges would lure me in! So here we are. Counting down the days till crunch time, but this time I’m prepared. Hopefully I can get everything read.

So before we get into the haul, I’m going to link some new sources that you can click on to help support organizations. Even though my media profiles and many other people are getting back to normal posting, things are far from over. Any support is better than no support and it helps make a difference. As always, make sure you’re using your platforms, using your voices, and doing what you can.

April 2020 TBR

Salutations Chapterlings! Finally April has come and I am back! So back in March I made a Life Update which is very unusual for my blog, but I felt is was necessary to make that post. In that post I got very personal and opened up a little about the things that was happening behind the scenes in my life. Even though I was posting reviews, I stepped back with posting any articles on my blog (aside from that life update) that felt personal. Even my other social media platform forms suffered a little from what was happening. With everything happening in the world right now, I made sure that I finished up the few books I wanted to read for March and took the rest of the month off from reading. Now we’re in April and there’s been so much happening! There’s also so many exciting things happening this month and I can’t wait for you all to be a part of it!

So I’m officially back! April is going to be a very busy month for me! Make sure you check out my blog post about Supporting Authors while in Self-Isolation because I go into a little detail in that article of the things happening later this month. All of that aside, I have some amazing books lined up for this month, but I have a feeling some of them are going to be put aside for other books I’m excited for. And I had one last minute addition added on. Regardless, this month is sure to be an exciting one for reading and other bookish things! Now without any further delays, let’s get to the books!

Monthly TBR

March 2020 TBR

Remember that one time where I said I was going to take a month off to rediscover my love for books and video games, feel safe in my space again, pull myself out of the horrible reading slump February put me in, and take that month to catch a breath and start fresh? Yeah…me either!

Salutations friends! If that introduction was any clue, I have done it once again! Back in the middle of February I made an announcement to all my friends I do buddy reads with that I was taking the month of March off. No buddy reads, a small tbr, feeling good and safe in my space again, and coming back in April feeling refreshed. Things didn’t go as I planned. Basically, I have a full March TBR and a Backlist Readathon TBR for the month of March. I talked about this in my February Wrap Up, February was (is) my worst month so far for 2020. A lot of things happened in my personal life that really affected me and there were a few things in the book community that really took a toll on me as well. I never voiced it, I never talked about it with my friends, but I will be making another post on my blog going into a little more detail. Essentially, a few people in the book community came into my space and was harassing me about a certain arc that I had received from a publisher. February ended with me feeling very unsafe in the book community, second guessing my reviewing process, and really put me in a negative head space. So I’m really nervous about having a ambitious tbr for the month of March and about a lot of things right now.

In total, I have nine books on my tbr for the month of March with two new releases that I’m hoping to get to. It’s pretty big and pretty ambitious especially since I’m very aware of the number of pages for each book. It’s a lot of pages, but I really, really want to get to most of these books. Some of these books are anticipated reads and I’m really hoping that one of these books, if not the majority, pull me out of this reading slump and remind me how much I love escaping into other worlds. So, without any further delays or going off on a random tangent, here is my March TBR. Enjoy!

I can’t believe this is my TBR for the month of March! I’m excited, I’m nervous and anxious, and I just really want to read all of them this month. March is certainly going to be a wild and chaotic month, reading wise and I’m kind of here for it. But that is everything for my March TBR, I hope your tbr is just as wild and chaotic as mine. Plus, I’m super excited for the release of Tigers, Not Daughters by Samantha Mabry! I have been telling so many readers about this book that I’m sure they’re sick of me talking about about it. Please feel free to tell me down below some of the books you want to read for March or if you read any of these books, come tell me your thoughts! Until next time Chapterlings, may March be kind to us all, I love you! πŸ’š


Monthly TBR

Backlist Readathon TBR

Salutations fellow readers! We are in a new month with a brand new theme and it’s that time, once more! I am at it once again where I’m probably biting off more than I can chew by adding a readthon to my March reading plans. However, I think I’m better prepared for it this time by only having three books on my TBR for this readathon. Of course, the real question is can I read all three books within a week or did I, once again, set myself up for doom? Who knows! We’re jumping on this wild ride anyway!

In case this is the first time you’re hearing about this readathon, The Backlist Readathon is being hosted by all the ladies listed below (so make sure you check out their videos and give them some love). This readathon will take place during the second week of March, March 9th to March 15th. So you’ll have a full week to cram as much reading as you can or as much light reading as you can! Whatever books you decide on, it’s sure to be a fun time for everyone participating.

But let me know down below if you’re participating and what books you may be trying to read. Until next time, let’s tackle these challenges together, I love you! πŸ’•


Monthly TBR

October 2019 TBR

Salutations Chapterlings! I can’t believe we’re finally in my favorite month of the year, October! I’m ready for spooky things, binge watching all the Halloween movies, and dressing up in all the costumes! But aside from that, I’m excited to finally curl up with a cup of hot coco and read some good books! I’ll admit, September has left me in a whirl wind of playing catch up and to be honest, I’ve gone a little overboard on the books for the month of October. I mean, I really went overboard this time. But that’s okay! I’m going to do my best to read all of these books and get as many off my tbr cart, ASAP!

This month is a little different though! The end of September still has me catching up on reviews, hauls, and basically everything. And since I’m playing catch up, that also includes catching up on taking photos. That means my tbr photo hasn’t even been taken yet. It also hasn’t been taken yet because I have an overly ambitious tbr for this month and I have no idea how I would even fit that into one photo. But it’s fine, it’s fine! We’re getting this tbr up and that’s all that matters! I promise, I will get that tbr photo up as soon as possible, but in the meantime, I hope you still enjoy my tbr for the month of October!

September 2019 TBR

Salutations Chapterlings! Why yes, I did do a new theme! Tis it not the fall season?! I think it is! Don’t worry, this look won’t be staying around for THAT long. This is just a theme that will only appear during the months of September, October, and November. Anyway, you came here because it’s officially September and with September means a new TBR must go up! So here we are! Now for the record, September is going to be a chaotic month! By now you’re probably staring at me and wondering, “Autumn, what have you done this time? I thought you weren’t going to keep doing this to yourself.” Well, not only do I have a TBR I really want to get accomplished this month, but I have a buddy read set for early September AND I’m going to be participating for the first time EVER in Contemporary-a-thon! It’s a very busy, very stressful, very exciting and anxiety ridden time! I’m a glutton for punishment and I’m an insomniac anyway. So here we are, friends! Hopefully, I will be getting my Contemporary-a-thon TBR up sometime in the near future. So anticipate some changes, new books popping up, and a fun time. But without any further delay, let’s dive into the books and a little bit of what the month of September has in store!

🌻 Currently Reading

Well this is a bit awkward… I finished the book I was currently reading and set aside another book I was currently reading. Ah, mood reading… forever being as unpredictable as the weather!

Well, I hope you’re all ready to hop on this ride! It’s going to be a crazy and wild ride, but it’s happening! I also want to take a moment to thank my spouse for helping me bring my ideas to life with this new spooky, fallish theme for my blog! This wouldn’t have been possible if they weren’t able to cipher my rambles and scribbles! But please let me know down in the comments what you’re reading for the month of September and whether or not you’ll be participating in the Contemporary-a-thon this round! As always, I hope your month is full of fall-tastic reads, I love you! ❀️

July 2019 TBR

Salutations Chapterlings! July has finally come and I’m hoping for a less stressful and far less busier month than May and June have been! I’m super thankful for things to hopefully start winding down which means I can finally start catching up on some serious reading. While I’m still playing catch up with articles and reviews, my reading game is going strong and hopefully I’ll soon be wrapping up my second book read for the month of July! However, I have so much in store and I can’t wait to share everything with all of you! So let’s jump into my July breakdown!

Before I get started, there are a couple books that aren’t featured in this TBR. Mostly due to the fact that I’m already in the middle of reading them, close to finishing them, or have finished them. So here’s a quick recap of what I’m currently reading and what I already finished!

Okay, friends! That does it for this TBR! I know that felt super short and I probably could have gone into a more rough draft of when I might be getting to these books. However, in all honesty (no masks or deceptions), May and June have left me a little burnt out and my reading has been a little all over the place. The fact that more comics and poetry books have been popping up on my wrap ups is never a good sign when it comes to my reading especially if the whole wrap up is mostly comics or graphic novels. So keeping my month open to allow myself room to breathe and take things at a slower pace for my own sake is what I’m aiming for, but don’t worry too much, friends! There will be buddy reads, reading updates, and hopefully some reviews you all will love. Plus, I have two Book Club books I’m reading for this month! So that’s two exciting things to look forward to! That does it and I can’t wait to see everyone’s TBRs for this month! As always, I hope this month is filled with lots of reading for all of us and of course, I love you! ❀️

June 2019 TBR

Holy strawberries Batman! I’m in a real jam this time!
May has officially come and gone. There were so many wonderful moments, but now we’re hitting summer and that may have caused me to bite off more than I can chew. I can’t believe I’ve done this to myself! I finally made a very ambitious TBR and June is definitely the month where I’m all booked! June is probably going to be my biggest month for reading, if not for reading activities. The pressure is on friends! I have so much planned and there’s a few events that I have to check on to see when they’re scheduled before I say anything. Just know there’s a lot of things happening behind the scenes that when the time comes for it, I’ll be sharing it with all of you. So pay attention to my social media!

So let’s talk a little about my June TBR because this is the entire list. Half of my TBR I’m keeping secret just because I like surprising people. I’m like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get from good ole’ Malli! But seriously, it’s going to be great and the second half is based off the fact that June is Pride Month. So keep your eyes peeled for some of those reads. Outside of my secret TBR, this month you probably noticed some books that were supposed to be part of my May TBR. Yeah…those didn’t happen. May was a wild ride and I’m just surprised I read as many books as I did for that month. So three of those books have ended up on my June TBR. I’m determined to get them, they sound so good and right up my reading tastes. Now, let me share with you some of my picks for the month of June!

Monthly TBR

May 2019 TBR

Oh my stars, it’s officially May! I can’t believe we have made it this far into the year already! Where has the time gone?! I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this yet, but April was a whirlwind and April was a bit of a sad month for reading. However, this month is going to be better and all I’m going to be doing is focusing on eating, sleeping, reading, working, and pushing out book reviews. It’s going to be intense, I may die, I may possibly have to hook myself up to a coffee machine so I can run on caffeine, but it’s fine, we’re fine, everything is fine! Not only that, but this is also my birth month (if I haven’t mentioned that yet, either) so May 25th will be the day I’m a bit kinder to myself than the rest of this month. So I hope you’re following me on social media because a lot is going to be happening that day! So pray for me because I don’t know how I’m going to survive this month and the roller coaster I’m about to get on!

So let’s dive into this monthly TBR! I’ve kept it kind of small this month just because I am in the middle of reading four other books right now! Two of these books are arcs and they take top priority out of everything else I’m reading right now. However, I’m really hoping I can get to the other books on my TBR because if you haven’t heard yet this month of May is Asian Pacific Heritage Month here in the US. While I will be rereading Dragon Pearl for the Dragons & Tea Book Club, I really wanted to have more than just one book on my TBR for Asian Pacific Heritage Month!

So without any further adieu, let’s get into this TBR for May!

Alright Chapterlings! That about does it! I may compile a side TBR in case my reading mood goes a little all over the place (like it usually does). Hopefully I will breeze through all of these books and have a few unexpected books for you if all goes plan, but in case I don’t, expect most of these books and their reviews should be happening this month. So that about covers it everyone! I look forward to seeing what all of you are reading for the month of May! I hope your month has started off fantastically and as always, I love you! ❀️
