Of Wonderland Book Club: October 2017

Posted October 1, 2017 by Inge in #OWBookClub, Features / 3 Comments


Welcome to another month of #OWBookClub. In January 2017, we started our very own book club. Instead of picking one title, we’ll pick a category each month. This can range from genres to more specific things, but will always be general enough to give you some play room. We didn’t want to send you to the bookstore to keep up every single month (although if you do need an excuse to go to the bookstore, here it is!), but rather we wanted you to be able to choose a book you may already own. This way, we’re hoping to ensure that #OWBookClub is accessible to everyone.

So last month’s theme was new-to-me authors, which had great potential for discovering some new gems. As I am focussing on getting through some of my ARCs, new authors are never far away. Though my planned reads kind of blew apart on me (DNFs and wonky formats), I really enjoyed Even the Darkest Stars and The Last Namsara.

This month’s theme is a total shocker (I am a little proud of myself for that one). With an overwhelming majority, you have chosen…


I mean, no surprise there. The first of September came along and suddenly everyone was breaking out the pumpkins and spider webs. Can I tell you a little secret, though? I’m not a fan of Halloween. *cue gasp* I have never watched a horror movie in my life, and every day I’m hiding 20 posts about the new IT movie. Still, you can stretch this theme as far as you want. Serial killer clowns or a high school having a Halloween party? If you’re a bit of a chicken like me, take a look at some (paranormal) fantasy books and see if anything takes your fancy.

I’ll only be reading one book for this month’s theme, but I’m expecting it to be a good one. My planned read is Godsgrave, the sequel to Nevernight. #stabstabstab
