Anticipated October 2018 YA Releases (the month we will all be broke)


October is going to be a crazy month for books.  Just October 2nd alone is insane!  I know this isn’t all the books coming out, but I tried to find a lot of the more anticipated ones.  Always double check the release dates, too.  I get most from Goodreads and I’ve found they’re not always 100% correct.  There are a couple that are releasing on weird dates (October 1 and October 4). I just added those to October 2nd to make it easier.

  1. Soooo many good books coming out, I don’t even know what to do with myself! 😱 I’ve pre-ordered What if it’s us and Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy, but I’m sure I’ll end up buying a lot more! It’s really unfair how many cool sounding books are coming out

  2. Okay, so the title of this post is SO ACCURATE. Also, there are so many beautiful covers on this list! Esp. Blanca & Roja by Anna Marie McLemore and The Brilliant Death by Amy Rose Capetta caught my eye. I am really excited about the Shadow of the Fox cause I love Japanese-inspired stories, but I’m not a huge fan of Kagawa, so I’m cautiously optimistic. Thanks for a lovely post 🙂
