Anticipated October Releases


These are my most anticipated releases for the month of October.

Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

gemina-by-amie-kaufman-and-jay-kristoffGenre: YA/Science Fiction
Series Name: The Illuminae Files
Pages: 608
Release Date: 18th October

Gemina is the second book in The Illuminae Files series. I read Illuminae about a month ago and I absolutely loved it!

I have a full spoiler free review here for Illuminae.

Illuminae was so different from anything I have ever read! I love that this book uses IMs, emails, interviews and other forms of hacked files to portray the story. It makes for such an interesting read and also a quick read!

I won’t put a synopsis for Gemina otherwise, it will spoil Illuminae. However, it is a thrilling sci-fi that is set in the year 2575

The Wands vs the World by Jade Chang


Genre: Fiction/Contemporary/Humour
Pages: 368
Release Date: 4th October

The Wangs vs. The World was recently on one of my Diversity Spotlight Thursdays posts.

This book is about a wealthy Chinese family that loses every cent they have. They take a road trip across America that brings them back together as a family.

Well, this is what I get from the Goodreads Synopsis. It sounds like an interesting read and is also a diverse book and I want to read more diverse books.

Glitter by Aprilynne Pike


Genre: YA/Fantasy/Historical Fiction
Pages: 384
Release Date: 25th October

This book is based in the modern world, however, inside the palace of Versailles people act, eat and dress like it’s the eighteenth century. This book has been described at Breaking Bad meets Marie Antoinette.

This book sounds so interesting and different from anything I have ever read! I also want to get into some more Historical Fiction.

This book cover is also gorgeous!

Fear the Drowning Deep by Sarah Glenn Marsh


Genre: YA/Historical Fiction/Fantasy
Pages: 304
Release Date: 4th October

Goodreads synopsis (because I couldn’t even begin to explain it in my own words):

Witch’s apprentice Bridey Corkill has hated the ocean ever since she watched her granddad dive in and drown with a smile on his face. So when a dead girl rolls in with the tide in the summer of 1913, sixteen-year-old Bridey suspects that whatever compelled her granddad to leap into the sea has made its return to the Isle of Man.

I love fantasy/paranormal books and this sounds like a perfect book for that!

What October releases are you looking forward to!
