Another month is over and we’re really heading to the dark and cold days. This is the weather that is perfect for reading (even though it’s always time for reading). Another month also means new books, so let’s take a look at anticipated releases October.
The Rule of One – Ashley & Leslie Sanuders (October 1st)
A world with a one child policy means these identical twins are criminals just for existing. These kind of stories always intrigue me, and I really hope its a good one and not just another dystopian.
The Boneless Mercies – April Genevieve Tucholke (October 2nd)
A band of mercenary girls in search of female glory. Do we need to know more? I don’t think so haha, this one is high up on my wishlist!
The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy – Mackenzi Lee (October 2nd)
Even though I still need to read The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, but I know I am going to love it! The next companion novel in this series sounds just as interesting. I love this cover as well.
The Perfect Candidate – Peter Stone (October 2nd)
A YA political thriller, I need more of those! I absolutely loved The Fixer and I hope this one is as good.
The Chaos of Now – Erin Jade Lange (October 4th)
Cyber bullying, teachers that become legal cyber snoops and teen hackers. Count me in!
Broken Things – Laura Oliver (October 2nd)
I love Lauren Oliver’s dark contemporary novels. This one is about two friends, everyone thinks they killed their best friend 5 years ago. But a new discovery opens the mystery back up and it sounds pretty dark and right up my alley.
When We Caught Fire – Anna Goodberson (October2nd)
While I don’t care for love triangles the backdrop of this story sounds amazing. 1871 Chicago, I really enjoy historical fiction and I can’t wait to read about this part of history.
Damsel – Elana K. Arnold (October 2nd)
I think this one is a twist on the damsel-in-distress stories that we all know and I hope it’s as good as I think it might be. The reviews I’ve seen promise me good, awful stuff I will love.
Grim Lovelies – Megan Shepherd (October 2nd)
This world sounds so so unique and the story already hooked me with just the synopsis. I think this one is pretty highly anticipated by a lot of people and I’ve already seen some positive reviews.
Words We Don’t Say – K.J. Reilly (October 2nd)
A kid having a hard time expressing himself and creating text messages to do this, even if he doesn’t send them. This sounds like a really interesting story. Something that I will love.
Someday – David Levithan (October 2nd)
I loved Everyday and I know many people have been waiting for this book to be released. How will this all turn out? Maybe I need to read this before watching the the movie they based on Everyday.
Muse of Nightmares – Laini Taylor (October 2nd)
Strange the Dreamer is still on my shelf, but so pretty, haha. This one looks gorgeous as well. People I know who have read it say it’s better than Strange the Dreamer. I need to tacked the last book of Daughter of Smoke and Bone first.
The Last Wish of Sasha Cade – Cheyanne Young (October 2nd)
P.S. I Love You mixed with Since You Been Gone and I can’t wait to find out if it’s a good mix!
Don’t Call Me Crazy – Various YA Authors (October 2nd)
Mental illness is something that still is a major taboo in many ways. Which is so wrong! People need to be able to talk about this if they want to without being afraid of being frowned upon. I love that more and more authors are creating books that tackle this subject.
Dry – Neal Shusterman & Jarrod Shusterman (October 2nd)
After reading Scythe, Neal Shusterman is an author that caught my attention. Dry is a book he wrote together with his son and sounds really interesting.
A Very Wide Expanse of Sea – Tahereh Mafi (October 16th)
I can’t imagin what it was like for muslims growing up in the States after 9/11. I have heard this book is pretty personal to the author as well. The cover is also gorgeous!
Blanca & Roja – Anna Marie McLemore (October 9th)
I think this is the first book by this author that I’m truly excited about but some reviewers I trust a lot seem to love her previous books as well. This one sounds super intriguing and I definitely want to pick it up.
Anything But Okay – Sarah Darer Littman (October 9th)
I don’t think I’ve heard of many YA books that have young army veterans with PTSD and this one sounds really interesting.
Carols & Chaos – Cindy Antsey (October 9th)
As a big fan of Christmas books, I knew this one needed to be add to the list. I saw a signup for a blog tour and I couldn’t resist. I was lucky to get an ARC, so keep an eye out for a review in October. I am going to start preparing for Christmas, haha.
Beneath the Citadel – Destiny Soria (October 9th)
I’ve seen some really positive reviews for this one. It has been compared to Six of Crows and that’s one of my favorites so you know I need this one as well. There is also supposed to be a lot of representation, bisexuality rep, ace rep, and plus size rep and possibly more.
Odd One Out – Nic Stone (October 9th)
Okay, I still need to read The Hate You Give, but I have heard nothing but amazing things. This author is coming out with a new book and it sounds really good as well.
Dear Evan Hansen – Various Authors (October 9th)
I know nothing about the broadway show, but this book just sounds really interesting. I don’t think I need to know more, but we will find out when I start to read Dear Evan Hansen.
What if it’s Us – Becky Albertalli & Adam Silvera (October 9th)
Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera both write amazing books, so I’m curious to see how a book turns out that they both wrote together. Will it be heartbreaking like all of Adam’s books? I can’t wait to find out.
Sawkill Girls – Claire Legend (October 2nd)
I kind of forgot about this book, but it seems like the perfect book to read around Halloween. A few people I know have already read and enjoyed Sawkill Girls. It’s almost 500 pages, so there’s plenty of book to enjoy. What is taking these girls?
Easy Prey – Catherine Lo (October 16th)
A mystery involving sexting, that sounds pretty up to date. I love whodunnits so can’t wait to try this one.
The Seven Torments of Amy & Craig – Don Zolidis (October 2nd)
A pretty unique sounding love story that I can’t wait to pick up.
Phantom Wheel – Tracy Deebs (October 16th)
This one sounds amazing! 6 hacker teens that think they’re being recruited into the CIA but are actually creating a super virus for the bad guys. Can’t wait to pick this one up.
That Night – Amy Giles (October 23rd)
That Night is about a shooting and especially about the aftermath for two teens. These stories are always so painful and heartbreaking to read. But also really powerful and I do love to read them.
Watch You Burn – Amanda Searcy (October 23rd)
This sounds like another interesting Halloween read that I wish I had known about before making my Halloween TBR, haha. It has some mixed reviews on Goodreads, but I’m still curious to see where this one goes!
An Assassin’s Guide to Love and Treason – Virginia Boecker (October 23rd)
I saw this book on a booktube channel not too long ago and it caught my eye. After My Plain Jane historical fiction seems to be more interesting to me. So I need to give this one a try.
Imagine Us Happy – Jennifer Yu (October 23rd)
This sounds like it has a lot of mental health representation and if we can believe the reviewers it doesn’t go the ‘lovers that save each other’ route and that makes me very happy.
Kingdom of Ash – Sarah J Maas (October 23rd)
This is our most anticipated releases this year! Our love for this series helped create this blog, so it’s an important one. We’re sad that it’s coming to an end, but excited to finally read it!
You Are the Everything – Karen Rivers (October 23rd)
A love story with the sole survivors of a plane crash? Count me in! Can’t wait to find out what this one is all about.
Come November – Katrin van Dam (October 30th)
I don’t know of anyone who’s read this already and it only has 4 ratings so far so this might end up being a hidden gem. The synopsis doesn’t give us that much either but it does mention a kind of sect and that sounds pretty interesting to me.
This Cruel Design – Emily Suvada (October 30th)
Okay, I got This Mortal Coil for Christmas last year and still haven’t read it yet, but look at this cover. Some people I know have recently read the first book, so I think the second one needs to be added to my list.
Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts) – Lev A.C. Rosen (October 30th)
I’m not quite sure about how this book will turn out, but it definitely caught my eye. Normally it’s a girl that is stalked and such, so the twist on this sounds rather interesting.
Snow in Love – Various YA Authors (October 30th)
Christmas is closer than I realized and I love that there are some holiday books coming out this month. I love Christmas themed books, so this is definitely on my wishlist.
Shadow of the Fox – Julie Kagawa (October 2nd)
I was quite disappointed by Talon by Julie Kagawa so I’m a bit hesitant about this one. But I have to say that the premise sounds really interesting and the cover is gorgeous. Shadow of the Fox features kitsunes and ever since Teen Wolf I wanted to see more of them.
Otherearth – Jason Segal & Kirsten Miller (October 30th)
We both have had the first book in this series for almost a year, haha. We planned on buddy reading this quite awhile ago. I loved how this series sounds though, so at least we can read the first two back to back.
The Darkest Star – Jennifer L. Armentrout (October 30th)
This is another one of my most anticipated releases this year. I was really shocked when I was approved for an ARC on Netgalley! I have only read about 20%, but I am loving it so far. Of course, my review will be posted closer to the release date!
October is another month that is dangerous for our wallets, haha. What books are you going to get that are releasing this month?
