On top of the excellent books I've highlighted this month, these are the other October releases that I really look forward to reading, and, sadly, haven't started yet (so many books!). Check these out!
In this third installment of the popular Raven Cycle series, the story of Blue Sargent continues, as does the search for her mother.
Word on the nets is that this is a really solid addition to the series with unexpected developments and cliffhanger chapters that make it hard to put down. That's just the kind of book that I enjoy reading!
Congrats on your release, Maggie!
The Blood of Olympus, by Rick Riordan
The books in this series release before my birthday each year. For the fifth straight year, I got another thick book on my shelf.
And this time, Mother Gaea is out to sacrifice two demigods with the help of her army of giants, so that she may rise. This is the end of the series, and I have no doubt that it will end with a big bang.
Can't wait to start on this one!
My family is a big fan of Jessica's work, and this third part in her MG series is bound to be no exception.
That cliffhanger ending from book one should get resolved (right?). Another adventure awaits Celie. When you take something big like a castle and make it a character of its own ... that's a golden story for you. Good thing I grabbed a copy at that launch party last week.
Happy release, Jessica!
I'm pretty excited about this one, since I've been following Gennifer's magic system in this series pretty closely. In the third and final book in the Crewel World trilogy, Adelice returns to Arras, which has fallen apart worse than it was before.
The first two books, Crewel and Altered, really set the stage for a grand finale. I'm stoked to see how everything gets wrapped up.
Congrats on your trilogy, Gennifer!
I just realized that I highlighted all sequels or the end of a series this time around. Sorry if that adds way more titles than you want on your to-read lists. But I'm not sorry.
Until next time, keep a lookout for those awesome reads!
Did any of these titles catch your eye? What have you been reading this month? How hard is it to end a series that you love?
I'm David, and it's a miracle that I get any writing done!
