Fifteen New October Must Reads!

Happy October!

I love fall and October. It’s my favorite time of year and it’s made all the better by all the awesome new releases in the young adult book world. I know I am about a week late with my monthly post (things have been crazy with work but I am now on fall break)! However, I will still be including books that came out last week because there were some really awesome ones I am very pumped to read.

Book One: Muse of Nightmares

25446343I want to start by saying I am a big Laini Taylor fan. I have several if not all of her books and when I heard that Strange the Dreamer was getting a sequel and the cover was going to have one of my favorite colors and look so awesome. I knew I needed it! I actually contacted the publisher and they sent me an ARC of this book, however, with my work schedule I was unable to read it before this post. It is on the fall break TBR though so I plan to read it this week!

Summary: **Since I have not read this book I have summarized the Goodreads and Amazon summary for this page so that you guys can have the most accurate ideas about the book!

Minya wants vengeance on Weep and Lazlo and Sarai are not the same because of everything they have endured. In this book Lazlo is faced with the tough choice, save everyone or save the one he loves the most. Meanwhile, Sarai (the Muse of Nightmares) still does not know what she can do. She has not learned of her full potential yet. Additionally, everyone is still spinning after what has happened at the citadel, and everyone has so many questions. What happened to the children? Where did the gods come from?

I kept this summary short as it is a sequel I would suggest picking up the first book Strange the Dreamer and then this book!

Release Date: October 2nd, 2018

Book Two: What If It’s Us

36341204This book may be one of my top anticipated releases of the year. I love both Becky and Adam and the two of them coming together is truly amazing. I have been waiting for this book (as patient as I can be) since I heard about it. Even if you have never read a Becky or Adam book check this book out, then go read all their other books.

Book Three: The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy

37880094Last year on booktube I heard about the Gentlemen’s Guide to Vice and Virtue the first book in this set and I was very interested.
