Tomorrow is October 1st, so it’s time to see what books are coming our way. The past few months have been nuts with all the releases and we have a feeling October is going to be the same way. So let’s take a look at our anticipated October 2020 releases. Even though I don’t know how happy our bank accounts will be with this post, haha.
People of Abandoned Character – Clare Whitfield (October 1st)
This is a Jack the Ripper historical fiction retelling and I love those! I want to read more of them and love that this is a woman who thinks her husband she just married might be Jack the Ripper.
One Way Or Another – Kara McDowell (October 6th)
It’s time for October releases and that means we’re going to start getting holiday themed books. One Way or Another sounds amazing and I’m so glad I have an ARC and will be reading it this month. I have a feeling this is going to leave a smile on my face.
The Code for Love and Heartbreak – Jillian Cantor (October 6th)
A modern day retelling of Emma. I love when authors take a classic and give it a modern twist. A matchmaking app can be very interesting, but I have a feeling this isn’t going to go very smoothly!
The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue – V.E. Schwab (October 6th)
We already have eARC’s of this one and are currently reading them. V.E. Schwab is an amazing writer and human being so whatever she writes is going to be highly anticipated. This one is about a girl who makes a deal with the devil and that’s all I needed to know.
Blazewrath Games – Amparo Ortiz (October 6th)
Dragons and their riders compete in an international sports tournament. These words combined are an instant want to read for me. How cool does this sound?!
I Hope You’re Listening – Tom Ryan (October 6th)
I love listening to true crime podcasts so this YA mystery sounds like it’s right up my alley. The mystery sounds pretty compelling and I hope we get some good twists.
Deepfake – Sarah Darer Littman (October 6th)
This concept is so scary and unfortunately pretty relevant. I’m excited to see where the story will take us!
In a Holidaze – Christina Lauren (October 6th)
Another holiday themed release this month and from an author duo that I love. And just look at this cute cover!! In a Holidaze sounds like a book that’s going to make me laugh, but will also leave me feeling fuzzy and warm when I’m done reading it.
The Devil and the Dark Water – Stuart Turton (October 6th)
Stuart Turton’s previous book; The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle is one of my favourite mysteries ever so I’m super excited for this new one. I don’t really know what it’s about and I think I’ll keep it that way.
Spoiler Alert – Olivia Dade (October 6th)
I’ve already talked about this book a few times on the blog, but it’s one I’m really excited to read. And I was finally able to get my hands on an e-arc! Yay me! I love when books have fandoms and when fan-fiction was mentioned, I knew I needed this book.
The Once and Future Witches – Alix E. Harrow (October 13th)
Book covers seem to keep getting more stunning as time goes on and this is one I really want on my shelves. A book where there’s no such thing as witches, but that’s about to change. Early reviews have been amazing for this book and it makes me excited!
The Twelve Dates of Christmas – Jenny Bayliss (October 13th)
The third holiday read on this list, but that has me excited! The Twelve Dates of Christmas sounds like it’s going to be a lot of fun. It’s almost Christmas and our main character goes on twelve different dates. I can’t wait to read this.
Fangirl, Vol.1: The Manga – Sam Maggs (October 13th)
We both LOVE Fangirl and we also both enjoy reading manga. So a combination of the two sounds very interesting. If the art is done well, this is going to be a wonderful way to experience the story again!
The Midnight Bargain – C.L. Polk (October 13th)
This fantasy novel sounds pretty devastating and I think might have some good commentary on our society. I hope the story is as compelling as the synopsis because I’m already invested in the story!
A Golden Fury – Samantha Cohoe (October 13th)
I love stories about alchemists and this one is about the Philosopher’s Stone. the curse sounds pretty interesting and I’m excited to see this story play out.
Hollowpox: The Hunt for Morrigan Crow – Jessica Towsend (October 15th)
This series is amazing and we’ve been waiting on this third book for quite a while. Morrigan Crow is a great MC and it’s going to be great to read a new adventure with her again.
Among the Beasts & Briars – Ashley Poston (October 20th)
So far I’ve only read the contemporary books by this author, so I’m looking forward to see what Ashley Poston does with fantasy. The cover is stunning and the story sounds a bit darker, but really good.
The Brightest Night – Jennifer L. Armentrout (October 20th)
Jennifer L. Armentrout is an auto-buy author for me and the third and final book in the Origin trilogy is releasing soon. I really enjoyed the first book and need to read the sequel soon, so I can start this one at the end of October. The only thing bugging me is this cover change. I don’t like it at all.
Crazy Stupid Bromance – Lyssa Kay Adams (October 27th)
The Bromance Book Club is definitely on the list of my favorite books. I haven’t read the sequel yet, because I don’t want it to disappoint, but the third book is almost here. So I need to hurry up. And look at the cute cat on this cover!!
Kingdom of the Wicked – Kerri Maniscalco (October 27th)
Another one we have eARC’s of. Kerri’s previous series is great (although we both haven’t finished it yet) and this one sounds like it might be a really good one as well. Also, look at that cover! It looks so good!
White Trash Warlock – David R. Slayton (October 31st)
This Queer Urban Fantasy has a ton of great early reviews. Everyone seems to really enjoy it and I think the synopsis sounds super interesting. This doesn’t look like it’s the same story we’ve read over and over again and I can’t wait to dive in!
So these are the books we’re looking forward to in October! There aren’t as many as we expected. Even though we’ve probably missed some books. What books are you looking forward to in October? Let us know in the comments.
