Angela: Hold on tight… I have a LIST. I feel like every book I want to read this year releases in October. (So many I’m not even going to list them all here.)
The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab 10/6 Fantasy– I’ve actually already read this one, simply because I couldn’t resist. AND IT WAS FABULOUS. This is a story of a woman who makes a deal with the devil in order to be free and have nothing holding her down, only she doesn’t exactly get what she expects. No one remembers her from that day forward, until 300 years go by and a man in a bookshop suddenly does. Review will post on release tomorrow!
In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren 10/6 Contemporary/ Holiday Romance– I read this one early as well. Think Groundhog Day meets Hallmark Holiday movie. The heroine has to relive the same family and friend Christmas vacation until she gets it right. This was super cute, I really enjoyed. Review posted here.
Mistletoe and Mr. Right (Moose Springs, Alaska Book 2) by Sarah Morgenthaler 10/6 Contemporary Romance– The follow-up to The Tourist Attraction, I’m more than ready to get back to Moose Springs and find out how Rick and Lana fall in love.
The Ippos King (Wraith Kings #3) by Grace Draven 10/6 Fantasy- I had this in my TBR for last month, but Ms. Draven put off the release date to October. I finally have a copy of this in my hot little hands and am diving in.
Black Sun(Between the Earth and the Sky #1) by Rebecca Roanhorse 10/13 Fantasy– First of all, the cover for this book is breathtaking. Secondly, I have been a huge fan of this author’s work since her debut fantasy. And lastly, how can anyone resist this:
From the New York Times bestselling author of Star Wars: Resistance Reborn comes the first book in the Between Earth and Sky trilogy, inspired by the civilizations of the Pre-Columbian Americas and woven into a tale of celestial prophecies, political intrigue, and forbidden magic.
The Once and Future Witches by Alix E Harrow 10/13 Fantasy– I fell in love with this author’s voice last year when I read The Ten Thousand Doors of January. This is a story that combines fantasy, magic, and the suffrage movement and I was thrilled to get an early copy.
Love is a Rogue (Wallflowers Vs Rogues) by Lenora Bell 10/27 Historical Romance- Lenora Bell has fast become an auto-buy author for me in this genre. I’m also a big fan of the wallflower meets and reforms her rogue trope.
Crazy, Stupid Bromance (Bromance Book Club #3) by Lyssa Kay Adams 10/27 Contemporary Romance– The third addition in a truly enjoyable contemporary series. This one features Noah and Alexis and it’s taken everything I have not to read early.
Also check out:
The Hollow Places: A Novel by T. Kingfisher 10/6 Horror (I was totally freaked out while laughing out loud. Highly recommend.)
The Vicar and the Rake: A Gay Historical Romance (Society of Beasts Book 1) by Annabelle Greene 10/12 M/M Historical Romance
The Midnight Bargain by C.L. Polk 10/13 Historical Romantic Fantasy
Snapped (Playbook, The Book 4) by Alexa Martin 10/20 Contemporary Romance
Kini: My TBR is flowing and I am trying to chip away at this October releases. Some of the ones I am most excited about:
Mistletoe and Mr. Right (Moose Springs, Alaska Book 2) by Sarah Morgenthaler 10/6 Contemporary Romance – I enjoyed the first in this series and I was super intrigued by the secondary characters.
After Hours Redemption by Kianna Alexander 10/13 Contemporary Romance– The cover for this is stunning! It is also a second chance at love- One click!
Sweet on You by Carla de Guzman 10/19 Contemporary Romance– The blurb mentions prank wars and I am here for it. Also the cover is very adorable!
Call Me Maybe by Cara Bastone 10/20 Contemporary Romance Audible Original. As part of the unofficial and non-existent Cara Bastone fan club I have insider info on her upcoming audio series. Okay in all seriousness I got this info from her agent. Per Tara at One Track Literary here is a little description of the series-
The series features characters who only meet via talk or text/web – no pictures, no idea what they look like, etc. They’re a little younger, featuring millennial modern dating in a tech-y world.
I can’t wait! (no link as of yet)
If the Boot Fits by Rebekah Weatherspoon 10/27 Contemporary Romance– Sexy cowboy wearing a tux on the cover. Okay twist my arm to read this. Also it’s a Cinderella retelling. Can’t wait to read this.
What is on your radar for this month? Anything you are super excited about? Waited months for? Tell us!
