I just can’t believe it’s October already! It’s time to share my October TBR with you all. October is a very busy month for me, and thus I’ll only be reading four books this month. Hopefully there will be more books on my TBR next month. Without further ado, let’s get started!
1. Spellcaster by Claudia Gray
“When Nadia’s family moves to Captive’s Sound, she instantly realises there’s more to it than meets the eye. Descended from witches, Nadia senses a dark and powerful magic at work in her new town. Mateo has lived in Captive’s Sound his entire life, trying to dodge the local legend that his family is cursed – and that curse will cause him to believe he’s seeing the future… until it drives him mad. When the strange dreams Mateo has been having of rescuing a beautiful girl – Nadia – from a car accident come true, he knows he’s doomed.” – Goodreads
I’m super excited to start reading Spellcaster. I’ve read Claudia Gray’s other series, The Firebird Trilogy, a little while ago and absolutely loved it (as you can probably guess from the many posts on Instagram about the series). Hopefully this book will be just as good (or even better!), because it sounds really amazing.
I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
2. An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson
“Isobel is a prodigy portrait artist with a dangerous set of clients: the sinister fair folk, immortal creatures who cannot bake bread, weave cloth, or put a pen to paper without crumbling to dust. They crave human craft with a terrible thirst, and Isobel’s paintings are highly prized among them. But when she receives her first royal patron – Rook, the autumn price – she makes a terrible mistake. She paints mortal sorrow in his eyes – a weakness that could cost him his life.” – Goodreads
When I first read the synopsis of An Enchantment of Ravens on Goodreads, I instantly knew I needed to read it, so I pre-ordered it. I received my copy yesterday, and I’m super curious to read it! The description sounds amazing (click on the link to read the full description), and I’ve heard lots of good things about the novel. Plus: don’t you agree that the cover looks so stunning? It’s gorgeous!
3. The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo
“Travel to a world of dark bargains struck by moonlight, of haunted towns and hungry woods, of talking beasts and gingerbread golems, where a young mermaid’s voice can summon deadly storms and where a river might do a lovestruck boy’s bidding but only for a terrible price.” – Goodreads
Aaah! I cannot wait to dive back into the Grishaverse with this novel full of tales from the Grisha world. I’ve loved the world Leigh Bardugo created ever since I first read The Grisha Trilogy, and fell even more in love with it when I read Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom. Leigh Bardugo belongs to my all time favourite authors. I really can’t wait to read this novel!
4. Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas
“Chaol Westfall has always defined himself by his unwavering loyalty, his strength, and his position as the Captain of the Guard. But all of that has changed since the glass castle shattered, since the King of Adarlan spared him from a killing blow, but left his body broken. His only shot at recovery lies with the legendary healers of the Torre Cesme in Antica – the stronghold of the southern continent’s mighty empire. And with war looming over Dorian and Aelin back home, their survival might lie with Chaol and Nesryn convincing its rulers to ally with them. But what they discover in Antica will change them both – and be more vital to saving Erilea than they could have imagined.” – Goodreads
Chaol has been my favourite character from the Throne of Glass series ever since I read the second book of the series (Crown of Midnight), so I’m thrilled that he’s got his own novel now! Even though I didn’t really like Sarah J. Maas’ latest novels, I’m curious to see if this one is better. Hopefully I’ll enjoy reading it!
Those were all the books I’ll be reading in October. I’m really curious to know: what books are you planning to read this month?
