These are all the books I managed to read for Gothtober! I think I did pretty well for this readathon with sticking to my TBR (something I almost never manage to do hah!) I definitely switched some books for different prompts, but I still count that as reading books on my TBR. Did you do any readathons this month?

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.

Blogtober Day Four: Gothtober Readathon

Hello, lovelies! There are so many fun readathons this month, but one in particular caught my eye. I love the title. I love the prompts. I love the books I’ve chosen for the prompts. This month I am participating in the Gothtober Readathon. You can find all the information for the readathon here on their twitter. It’s running all month long, so I have plenty of time to read the books on this list and also read the books on my other TBR lists. Though some books made more than one list. Let’s get right into it.
