Looking Forward: October
Sometimes it's really hard for me to keep track of what comes out what month, especially while juggling early reviews and publisher catalogues and all the other confusing bookish things bloggers deal with. It's just a LOT OF BOOKS ALL THE TIME. How do you ever keep them straight?! So on the last day of the month, I post a guide to what books I'm most looking forward to in the following month and that you should keep an eye on. So, since it's the (second to) last day in September, here are the October releases most tempting me:
Books of the month:
Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater: October 21st
I've read this and it's amazing and Maggie is a wizard and Blue Gillian, Lily Tears
The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan: October 7th
Girl on a Wire by Gwenda Bond
Romeo and Juliet meets CIRCUS ACROBATS!
The Young Elites by Marie Lu
New Renaissance-inspired, diverse, shades of gray high fantasy from Marie Lu. NEED IT.

Clariel by Garth Nix
Prequel to Sabriel, one of my childhood FAVORITES.
My True Love Gave to Me edited by Stephanie Perkins
Pretty sure Stephanie woke up one day and said, "You know what would be a great idea? If we combined two of the things Gillian likes most: YA and CHRISTMAS! Oh, and illustrated covers, JUST in case it's not enough for her."
Every Breath by Ellie Marney
What if Sherlock was the boy next door? What if Sherlock was the boy next door? What if Sherlock was the boy next door?
Glory O'Brien's History of the Future by A.S. King
Missed grabbing this magical realism masterpiece at BEA, but I did read the first 80 or so pages of my friend's ARC, and it's amazing.
Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis
Sci fi Snow White, yes please
The Cure for Dreaming by Cat Winters
Turn of the century suffragettes! Plus hypnosis!

Laugh-a-minute historical romp.

It's about a Louisiana swamp that eats people. IT EATS PEOPLE.
