Top 8 Book Releases of October 2019!

Top 8 October 2019 Book Releases (


October is probably my favorite month of the year. The weather is cooler but not cold, the leaves are changing, everything is spooky,

and a whole bunch of good books are being released.

We have a lot of good books coming out this month. Seriously. It’s overwhelming. The scariest thing this Halloween is the size of my TBR. That said, I was able to narrow it down to a few of my absolutely most anticipated that you have to pick up this month!

Read more for 8 of my most anticipated October book releases!

7. Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo


Release Date: October 8th
: Alex Stern #1
Page Count: 480
Genre: *Adult* Occult Fantasy

Leigh Bardugo is my queen, so naturally I’m dying to start this book. Although I do want to warn anyone who might be interested in picking this book up, it’s supposed to be VERY dark and triggering. After being the sole survivor of an unsolved multiple homicide, Alex Stern is offered a full ride to Yale. Once she arrives, she is tasked with monitoring the secret societies of the university, but their activities are much darker than she could have imagined.

I just love Jennifer L. Armentrout books. They always make me so happy. This book is the sequel to The Darkest Star, and it picks up right where the previous book left off.

5. The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh

This is one of my favorite books of the year. Listen, this is the atmospheric historical paranormal romance you need in your life. It takes place in 1872 New Orleans, when a string of murders leads Celine to begin looking into the glamorous but mysterious New Orleans underworld.

4. Into the Crooked Place by Alexandra Christo

Review To Come: October 12th

I’m actually reading this right now! It’s really good. The writing is beautiful, and the characters and setting give me major Six of Crows and The Gilded Wolves vibes. Four outsiders must come together to save their home from dark magic threatening to destroy everything.

3. The Library of Lost Things by Laura Taylor Namey

Release Date: October 8th
:  N/A
Page Count: 384
Genre: Contemporary

This is surprisingly deep contemporary, following Darcy Wells. Darcy is a literary genius, memorizing books to escape from the hidden truth that her mother is a hoarder. When Darcy meets Asher Fleet, she begins to care for him, but letting him into her life, and opening up to him, isn’t easy.

2. Twice in a Blue Moon by Christina Lauren

Release Date: October 22nd

Genre: *Adult* Contemporary Romance
Review To Come: October 19th

Tate Jones’ first love broke her heart and changed her life. Fourteen years later, Tate is an actress in a new movie. However, she never expected to see her first love on set. This second-chance romance is absolutely adorable, as all Christina Lauren books are!

1. Beyond the Black Door by A.M. Strickland

Release Date: October 29th
:  N/A
Page Count: 400
Genre: Fantasy

Did someone say asexual rep and villain romance? Beyond the Black Door follows Kamai, a soulwalker who can go into other people’s souls while they sleep. Wherever she goes, she finds a black door that she was warned to never open. But one day, she does.

  1. My Must Have for this month is The Never Tilting World by Rin Chupeco but I will say that Crier’s War and The Beautiful are both really high on my list as well!
    This month had so many good releases that I had to break my buying ban twice. Was I really supposed to say no to a BotM edition of The Beautiful? Did the world really think I’d survive without a copy of Crier’s War?
    And pre-orders don’t count towards the ban!

    I’ve seen Into the Crooked Place on a ton of lists and I think I’ll have to check it out as well!

    • I’ve heard so many good things about The Never Tilting World!! I need to move it up on my TBR.
      Yeah this month really hurt my wallet. It should be illegal to have so many good books coming out, and so many different editions of those books. I honestly don’t even know how many editions of The Beautiful I ordered. It’s unhealthy.
      You should definitely check out Into the Crooked Place!! It’s really good, the author has definitely become one of my favorites.


  2. Crier’s War is on my October TBR! This is such another great new release month– I’m so excited for everyone to be able to read The Beautiful, Twice in a Blue Moon, Ninth House, and basically every book on your list! I’m also looking forward to reading Elle Kennedy’s The Play, which just came out this week, after I read Briar U #2.
