Eagerly Anticipating: Is it October Yet?

Ah, October. You crept up on me. Before you know it I’m going to have to hunt for adorable costumes for my kids and get ready for a night of trick or treating. Other than that, I’ve got some pretty exciting (for me, at least) books scheduled to release. I’m pleased that I got my hands on almost every book on my September Eagerly Anticipating post. Hopefully I can have the same results for this month.

*Scheduled for release October 1st*

The Goblin King by Shona Husk – I haven’t ever read anything by this author, but I am intrigued by the thought of goblins. I’m hoping the goblins will make the storyline feel new and fresh.


*Scheduled for release October 4th*

A Beginner’s Guide to Rakes by Suzanne Enoch – I am a big fan of Enoch’s and am hoping that this one won’t disappoint. It would be absolutely delicious to open the book and find a wicked hero, ร  la Saint from London’s Perfect Scoundrel.

A Touch of Crimson by Sylvia Day – I haven’t read anything by this author, and I’m not sure about the angel turned vampire thing, but that cover has caught my eye so often that I have to check it out. What? I’m easy. Sue me. ๐Ÿ˜›

Chosen by Fate by Virna DePaul –Yes! Finally I’m going to get to read about Wraith. I found her very interesting when I read Chosen by Blood and am curious to finally see her backstory.

Serpent’s Kiss by Thea Harrison – I am very eager to get my hands on this. I’ve found the previous heroines a little weaker than my preferences, so I’m excited to see the author handle a badass heroine like Carling. That vampire doesn’t seem to have a weak bone in her body. (Hopefully I didn’t just jinx myself!)


*Scheduled for release October 25th*

A Winter Scandal by Candace Camp – Reading this author usually leaves me smiling. Her books have a way of making me feel happy after I close the pages, so I’m glad to get a chance to try her newest release.

Darkness Rising by Keri Arthur – I haven’t had a chance to pick up the first book in this series, but I’m going on the assumption I’ll like it, so I’m still planning to get my hands on this one. Anyone have plans to check these books out?

The Shadow Reader by Sandy Williams – I really enjoy Fae central storylines, so this one is right up my alley. I’m curious to get a deeper look at the dynamics between humans and the Fae in this world.

Trance by Kelly Meding – The blurb for this on Goodreads referred to the book as “x-men like” so I’m sold. Hopefully it’s as good as expected.

    Shona Husk, Virna dePaul, Sylvia day – all check for october. October for me means my 12 day trip to NOLA and the start of my new job in kiddie daycare. The loss of reading time will be severe *gulp*

  2. Linda S. says

    I’m looking forward to many of these, most especially the Thea Harrison book. I loved the previous two! I get tired of all of the supertough heroines. As long as they are interesting, I’m happy.

  3. Sheree says

    So many good books! I guess I’m going on a diet next month because I’ll be spending more money on books.

  4. says

    Am huge Enoch fan also (love London’s Perfect Scoundrel and Always a Scoundrel!). She’s had stumbles in her last few releases, so I hope this one is like her older HRs.

    The one I’m most eagerly anticipating is Elizabeth Hoyt’s third Maiden Lane book, Scandalous Desires, which comes out October 24 (or 18th, different dates in different places).

    Agree about Sylvia Day cover. Very nice :-)

  5. Ren says

    I have Sylvia Day’s book, its e-arc. Stop reading in the middle, but I think I will continue it again.Some part are like Guild Hunter, just there are lycan too beside angel and vampire..

    And I want to read Goblin King, just because I love the cover model ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. says

    I’m so curious to read the shadow reader ! It sounds really great and I just love the cover ! I didn’t remember about the release of Trance, but now I want it too !!

  7. says

    Yay for October! Quite a few of those books are on my TBR, The Shadow Reader being at the top.

    Dearly Departed & Angels of Darkness are also coming out in Oct!

      Well, I know now why Dearly Departed wasn’t on my radar. You know I rarely read about zombies. I forgot about Angels of Darkness, too. I’ll probably eventually give that a shot.
