Hi friends! I am…shocked…that it’s already spooky season??? Like yay but also WHAT. Anyways, I guess that means it’s time for me to talk about my most anticipated releases for October!
The Poppy and The Rose by Ashlee Cowles | From what I can gather, this follows two perspectives: one of a teen girl boarding the Titanic and meeting some strange characters, and the other of a modern 21st century girl who has to connect her own past to that of the our other character. I’m getting Midnight At The Electric vibes but with some fantasy? So here’s to hoping this is good!
Five Total Strangers by Natalie D. Richards | Me: I don’t like YA thrillers. Also me: OOH A YA THRILLER ABOUT FIVE STRANGERS TRAPPED IN A BLIZZARD IN A CAR TOGETHER AND ONE OF THEM IS SABOTAGING THE REST??? COUNT ME IN!
Broken Wish by Julie C. Dao | I’m still slightly confused on this series but I believe that it will follow several cursed generations over four books by different authors??? The first book in particular supposedly takes place in Germany and there’s witches so I’m already sold.
A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik | A…dangerously terrifying magical school. And a girl with dark abilites. Literally, I needed to know nothing else to instantly want this.
The Invisible Life of Addie La Rue by Victoria Schwab | I’ve read too many glowing reviews to even consider passing this one up. I know it’s about a girl who makes a deal with a devil to live forever, and there’s a heavy emphasis on art. I must read.
Blazewrath Games by Amparo Ortiz | A magical dragon competition. I am HYPED. Plus that cover is just yes.
The Truth Project by Dante Medema | I know this is a hard-hitting (i’m assuming) contemporary following a girl who finds out her dad isn’t actually her biological dad. Also, this cover is beyond gorgeous.
Charming As A Verb by Ben Phillippe | Not only is the author incredibly nice, I’m here for a rom-com featuring dog-walking. Let’s go!
A Golden Fury by Samantha Cohoe | All I really know is that alchemy exists and there’s the Philosopher’s Stone. Hi, hello, my Nicholas Flamel series loving heart is screaming.
Poisoned by Jennifer Donnelly | I’ve highlighted this release before but I loved Stepsister earlier this year, so a Snow White retelling??? I am so beyond excited.
Among the Beasts and Briars by Ashley Poston | The synopsis reminds me so much of an old folk fairy-tale. I genuinely don’t know much other than this follows a girl on a quest through the woods with magical animal companions.
Nemesis and the Swan by Lindsay K. Bandy | “From her prison cell in revolutionary Paris, nineteen-year-old aristocrat Hélène d’Aubign recalls the events that led her to choose between following in her parents’ unforgivable footsteps or abandoning the man she loves.” I’m so ready.
That’s it! Share your most anticipated October releases below!
