October seems to bring with it even more fabulous books than September did. I hope you’re ready!

We might actually see the third book in the Hollow Gods series at long last! I need to go recap the previous books, but I am excited to get back to the story. I’ve pre-ordered the latest offerings from V.E. Schwab, Leigh Bardugo, Stu Turton and Aliya Whiteley, and am tempted by a whole lot more of these.
