31 blogtober ideas for book bloggers

blogtober ideas for book bloggers
Pin me!

Hi everyone and welcome to Owl Book World. October is coming up and you know what that means! Blogtober is coming up for any blogger. But since I’m a book blogger I will be aiming this more towards other book bloggers. I hope you enjoy it and get some helpful ideas out of it!

It’s something that I have probably participated in once and I may do it again. But it does take a lot of work because you write a post for every day of October. I know there are some who can do it and I might try again next year but I’ll have to plan for it months ahead of time! So what exactly is blogtober?

What is blogtober?

Blogtober takes place in the month of October (hence where the name comes from). It’s a yearly thing that gets bloggers excited for the fall season and the holidays. This is where we talk about anything fall and Halloween-related. This includes scary books and movies that you just love to talk about. For a while, I’ve been wanting to make a list of posts for book bloggers to talk about during this event. That’s because sometimes it is so hard to find things to talk about other than books. Or most of the topics we end up thinking about literally every other blogger is talking about too. On top of that, I see multiple bloggers using the same ideas and that’s fine but I also want to talk about things that every other blogger won’t be talking about as well.

So, this year I’ll probably post a few blogtober posts during the times I normally post! Some of them might be the blogtober ideas that I’ve posted here but if I end up thinking of anything else to post then I will probably change things up.

So here are 31 book bloggers:

  1. Book reviews (Duh!)
  2. Top horror movies
  3. Top horror books
  4. horror subgenres you like and why
  5. Horror books that weren’t as creepy as you thought it would be
  6. Books that gave you nightmares
  7. Books with crazy endings
  8. Creepy covers
  9. Favorite reading spots during the fall
  10. Books that take place on Halloween
  11. Paranormal books (not necessarily horror) you have enjoyed
  12. Favorite type of monster in movies/books
  13. Books you feel go well with the fall season
  14. World wide virus
  15. Halloween book for those who don’t scary books
  16. Haunted houses
  17. Scary books you thought were unique
  18. Horror novellas
  19. Horror anthologies
  20. YA horror
  21. Middle grade horror
  22. Books that remind you of a certain movie
  23. Scary books with POC author
  24. Scary books with POC characters 
  25. Scary books for young children
  26. Cozy mysteries
  27. Comfort clothes to read in during the fall
  28. Best bookish costumes
  29. Scary movies for children
  30. Things to help you get in the Halloween spirit 
  31. Favorite Halloween candies
