I can’t believe it’s already time for another hype post! September has just flown by – which I guess you can tell by the fact that I’ve barely been posting on here apart from blog tours… My dissertation is due soon and so I’ve been running around like a headless chicken. But there are many great books coming out in October that deserve your attention, not least of all, two that I’ve already been raving about: there is Alix E. Harrow’s The Once and Future Witches, which I reviewed on here earlier this year. This is absolutely the witchy book of my dreams and I can’t wait to get my finished copy and reread it! For more details, go check out my review here which includes pre-order info. Then, October also brings THE BEST BOOK EVER, which is The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab, my heroine. I reviewed that one over at Grimdark Magazine – have a read here. I might have pre-ordered five separate copies of this book, not like I’m obsessed or anything…
Another adult release I’m very excited for is Plain Bad Heroines by Emily M. Danforth. The US edition is out on the 20th of October (the UK edition won’t come out until 2021). It’s a sapphic horror-comedy set in a boarding school in 1902 – which sounds exactly like what I need to read during spooky season! I’ve only heard great things about this one, so I’m super keen to get my hands on this one in time for Halloween! Order a copy from Amazon here!
The next book on my list, Among the Beasts and Briars by Ashley Poston has one of the most beautiful YA covers I’ve seen – entirely made out of flower petals! This is another one perfect for those colder fall vibes, a dark fairy tale perfect for cozy evenings curled up with a cup of tea. As I love these kinds of books, I’ve been waiting for this one to come out for ages, and it also features a fox (I love the adorable creatures!). It’s also out on the 20th, and you can get a copy from Amazon here.
The second YA I want to point your attention to is Blazewrath Games by Amparo Ortiz. Magic tournament with dragons, yes please! This book is also written by a Latinx author, set from the perspective of the Puerto Rican team – a country I know far too little about and look forward to learning more about, and features several LGBTQ+ characters! Sounds like a great read, very sad that no one let me read an ARC… This is out very soon, on the 6th of October. Do yourself a favour and order a copy from Amazon here.
