Victober & Spooktober TBR | October Reads

WELCOME TO MY INSANE TBR FOR OCTOBER BECAUSE – HI CHALLENGES I’M WITH YOU, I WILL FOLLOW AT THE COST OF MY SANITY – AHAHAHAHAHA… /_\

But yeah, October is going to be a busy busy month for me as I will be participating in the following challenges:

  • Victober
  • Spooktober
  • Inktober

And then there’s my online class, work and life. @_@ I love myself.

So here’s the rundown of the challenges in case they sound interesting to you!!

Victober is basically a challenge where you read any kind of literature published during the Victorian era (1837-1901). This was created by Books and Things over on YouTube, as well as a slew of hosts whose links I will leave down below!
