Top Ten Tuesday: October Challenge 2021 Options!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Last week I presented my fall TBR. A few of them are options for October Challenge. Since this week is a freebie, I thought I’d present more October Challenge possibilities. October Challenge is quite flexible. It’s thirteen books that fit at least one of these things: murder mystery, gothic, horror, supernatural and/or paranormal elements, thriller, spooky.

The Valancourt Book of World Stories Vol. 1 is also a stand in for multiple Valancourt books I want. Also I want to reread Monster, She Wrote and pick books from a bunch of the writers featured.

I’m also leaning towards more short story collections like Weird Women 1852 – 1923 and The Gilda Stories by Jewelle Gomez.

There are also other nonfiction books I want to try: Ghostland: An American History in Haunted Places by Colin Dickey and In the Dream House by Carmen Maria Machado.

T. Kingfisher has two atmospheric books: The Twisted Ones and The Hollow Places.

The Hunger by Alma Katsu sounds disturbing.

Revenge is supposedly Yoko Ogawa’s best.

Phantom Tales of the Night Vol. 2 and The Roses in May are sequels but they aren’t direct ones. They have characters in common.

And I wanted more witches so I added Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett because I want to follow the witches’ series within the bigger series. But I do have a bunch of witch books in my library pile and e-reader.

  1. Each of the covers you posted is delicious! Talk about setting the right mood! (I must disagree with those who say Revenge is Yoko Ogawa’s “best.” Of course, that is a subjective term, but I dearly loved The Housekeeper and The Professor. ☺️)
