September was a bit of a slump month in terms of reading for me. I never felt like I wanted to pick up a book instead I found myself engrossed in the world of The Adventure Zone podcast. In October I want to get back into my TBR. I have a lot of ARCs this month as well as a some spooky reads for the season. I also have quite a few new realises finding there way to me this month as well as two author events. So it will be a busy bookish month.
The biggest category by far this month. I have quite a few new releases for October and then I have a few to catch up with as well. Luckily, I have already managed to tick one off the list already, and it was a great start.
The Black Hawks
Release Date : 3rd October
I have already finished and reviewed this one here. I really enjoyed this band of misfits and their adventure and I am really looking forward to the next instalment.
Release Date: 8th October
Vampires are back and just in time for Halloween. I have heard mixed things about this one so far and I am not the biggest fan of Ahdieh’s writing (I DNF’d Flame in the Mist) so I am a little worried about this one.
Release Data: 17th October
This sounds right up my street! A police procedural with Time travel, yes please. This is a spin off of Jodi Taylor’s St Mary’s series, which I have not read but it has been on my TBR for some time. I am hoping that I will enjoy this and it will prompt me to start the St Mary’s series.
The Black Mage
Daniel Barnes and DJ Kirkland
Release Date: 29th October
A graphic novel based around history, race with magic mixed in seems like a great read for this time of year. The art work looks amazing and I am looking forward to diving in to the story.
Release Date: 31st October
I have read a couple of Hardinge’s books before and they both have been beautifully written and have a dark edge to them that is just awesome. With talk of Gods and Monsters and a distinctly nautical theme to the cover it seems promising.
Girls of Storm and Shadow
Release Date: 5th November
I have to admit when I was awarded access to this ARC I had not read Girls of Paper and Fire. I still haven’t finished it but I did start it at the end of September and have been loving it so far so I am actually looking forward to just getting to continue on.
Series To Finish
Yes I haven’t finished this yet! to be honest I am kinda scared as I really don’t want to get to the end. I adore this series and I am awful at actually finishing series as I hate when things end. I will get to this I just need to give myself recovery time afterwards., as I know I will need it.
I have actually finished this one and it was a great fast paced read. I started it in late September and completed it on the 2nd. I do love a good heist which this book has elements of and I really love the magic system. I should have my review up shortly but I did enjoy this one.
Girls of Paper and Fire
October 2018 Fairyloot
This is a really old Fairyloot from all the way back from October 2018. As you saw above I have an eARC of the next in the series. I have started this book at the end of September and am loving the narrative and the world building. I am looking forward to finishing both of these books this month.
Serpent and Dove
As above I have heard this is a great dark read and I also really want to join in on the Fairyloot readalong. I haven’t actually joined in one one and that seems like i am missing out on the community so I am hoping this month I can dive in and share this book with the group.
So that is my month. I am hoping I can fit in a few mysteries and some spooky reads at the end of the month if the all the ARC reading goes well but we will just have to see.
