A good friend of ours, Melissa from MelissasBookWorld has a great weekly post: Wishlist Wednesday. We love this idea so much that we want to include it on our blog as well. Every other Wednesday you will be able to read a Wishlist Wednesday. At the end of the month we will tell you about the books being released in the next month that we are looking forward to. This week you can read about books coming out in October that we really want to add to our collections! If you click on the title of the book it will lead to the Goodreads page, so you can find out more about the book.

Without MeritAll the Crooked SaintsDear Martin

Without Merit – Colleen Hoover

Colleen Hoover is an amazing writer and an autobuy author! She always knows how to take her readers on an emotional rollercoaster ride. Nothing has beat November 9 yet, but all of her books are worth reading. We can’t wait to see what this one is all about!

All the Crooked Saints – Maggie Stiefvater

Maggie Stiefvater wrote the series The Raven Boys and it was really good. The description of All the Crooked Saints sounds really interesting. A family that can perform unusual miracles is something we need to read about!

Dear Martin – Nic Stone

With everything in the news these days, this book seems like something that will hit pretty close to home. How certain stereotypes can influence someone’s life even when they don’t match at all. In today’s society this is a good book to read.

Top TenThe Glass SpareThat Inevitable Victorian Thing

Top Ten – Katie Cotugno

We both haven’t read a book written by Katie Cotugno yet (even though we both agree we want to, haha), so this one had to go on the list. It seems like the typical contemporary that has been published many times, but they can be so good! Sometimes it’s nice to have a contemporary that isn’t so heavy as some fantasy books can be.

The Glass Spare – Laure DeStefano

A princess that turns people into gemstone when she touches them isn’t something I have read before. Other elements seem to sound like a typical book in this genre, so I hope it’s unique and amazing!

That Inevitable Victorian Thing – E.K. Johnston

The combination of a near future world where the British empire was preserved and hints of how things were with Queen Victoria sounds very intriguing. This sounds like a perfect Fall read. It sounds like a tea party we don’t want to miss.

This Darkness MineForest of a Thousand LanternsI am not your perfect mexican daughter

This Darkness Mine – Mindy McGinnis

The first two paragraphs of this book’s description didn’t really catch my attention, but the last paragraph turned that around. The twin sister absorbed in the womb isn’t something we see in a lot of books, haha. A psychological thriller is the perfect book for Halloween.

Forest of a Thousand Lanterns – Julie C. Dao

This book has been on my radar for a while! It’s supposed to be an East Asian retelling of the Evil Queen. I love the recent trend of retellings so whenever there’s a new one it goes on my goodreads TBR. Having this one also being East Asian makes it even better. I love reading about different cultures and I haven’t read to much books set in Eastern Asia so I hope to read this one soon!

I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter – Erika L. Sanchez

Talking about different cultures, this one is set in Mexican culture and the synopsis sounds pretty interesting. I do feel like this might play out like a lot of similar stories and hope that the Mexican culture isn’t the only thing setting it apart.

Beasts Made of NightThe Goblins of BellwaterThe Afterlife of Holly Chase

Beasts Made of Night – Tochi Onyebuchi

A pretty rare occurence in YA, the narrator in this book is male! It’s marketed as a gritty Nigerian-influenced fantasy and features beasts that are formed out of sins. The protagonist is a sin-eater and slays these beasts. Now this sounds right up my alley!

The Goblins of Bellwater – Molly Ringle

Goblins aren’t written about in that many popular books (that I know of anyways), I still need to read Wintersong but heard nothing but praise for it. I have a feeling we might get more goblin books after that succes and I’m all for it! I’m not completely sure what to expect for this book but the synopsis sounds intruiging enough.

The Afterlife of Holly Chase – Cynthia Hand

As you saw in our getting to know us tag we both love Christmas. The Christmas Carol is a classic and to see it with a twist and a topsecret company makes it a mustread. A book that can be read with hot chocolate, while sitting next to the Christmas tree.

Among the red starsthe last namsara27 Hours

Among the Red Stars – Gwen C. Katz

Female pilots in World War II, that’s actually all I need to know to be interested in this one haha. I really like reading about World War II, it’s super interesting and it’s the perfect setting for characters with great development and who aren’t necesarily good or bad.

The Last Namsara – Kristen Ciccarelli

 Dragons! Legends! Fierce Lady Warrior! Do I even need to say more? I don’t think so right? I can’t wait to get my hands on this one, it sounds super promising. Let’s hope it can deliver!

27 Hours – Tristina Wright

This title reminded me of 172 hours on the moon (one of the scariest books I’ve ever read, couldn’t sleep after I finished it!), so I checked it out! The premise sounds pretty decent and it contains a super diverse cast. I did find some controversy surrounding the book though, so you might want to check that out for yourself before you decide if you want to read the book!

What books are you looking forward to in October?
