Hello fellow bookworms 🎃 Time has flown by so fast and now it’s already time for another Wrapup and … yes you guessed it HALLOWEEN! It’s a fact that I’m a huge fan of the spooky season, even though I cannot watch a horror movie for sure. However, there are lots of great spooky books to enjoy this month!
To make things quick: I am moving my Book Blog to WordPress. I’m going to go more into detail in my first announcement post on the new blog, but I have been considering taking this step for a while now. I started blogging on Tumblr, because it was the only platform I knew 100% how to use with pretty designs etc. but not a lot people from the bookish community where active there. Mostly, I had chosen the wrong platform, because it wasn’t very interactive. After a long discussion with myself, I ended up getting to know WordPress and have been since working on my new blog.
Speaking off my new blog (bookcheshirecat.wordpress.com – currently on private) will go live on Sunday, October 8th!! I am very excited and really happy with how things are going so far!
My old posts were part of the reason I didn’t want to move, but after sorting through them and cutting a LOT of them, I decided to keep my favorite posts. I’ve summed up some things like weekly memes and monthly wrapups in 1-2 posts so that my blog would not be overflowing with them. When it comes to Reviews, I’m going to move them to Goodreads and link that Review in my new Review Index. Posting them all on my blog would just take up too much space. However, Reviews in the future will be posted both on the blog and also on Goodreads!

As you can see I have mostly chosen spooky books this month, precisely because I really want to get into the Mood for Halloween! Like last year Sbooktober is happening again for maximal spooky bookish-ness! Check out their Twitter here for announcements and more fun stuff. There are a few photography challenges that I’d like to do and of course I’m going to participate in the Readathon, which takes place the last 7 days of October! Sadly university starts again this month, but before that I’m going to go on a small vacation and also visit this year German Bookfair in Frankfurt so it’s okay.
Do you like Halloween? What’s your go to autumn book? 🎃
