Madalyn’s October TBR + Most-Anticipated Releases!

Posted October 2, 2017 by Madalyn || 12 Comments

Hi, friends! I don’t always do monthly TBR posts on the blog, but lately making TBRs has really helped me to focus my reading each month. I find that I read more when I have a set list of books I want to get to in a given period of time. So, without further ado, I bring you my TBR for the month of October! I also like to include my most-anticipated releases for the month in question in these TBR posts, so I’ll talk a little about those, too.

The November Girl comes out next month, so I will definitely be reading that one in October. Luckily, it sounds super atmospheric and perfect for fall. Nice Try, Jane Sinner doesn’t come out until January, but I’m itching to read it, like, now. I’ve heard nothing but fantastic things!

Storytime with Squibbles Book Club Pick

October is the inaugural month of the book club my lovely friend Joce is starting! Her pick for this month is Stay With Me by Ayobami Adebayo. I’m so excited to read it! I already picked up a copy, and I trust Joce’s taste in books more than I trust anyone’s taste in anything, pretty much. If you’re interested in joining the book club, here’s a link to the Goodreads group!

October Releases

October is a GREAT month for book releases, but these are the four I’m definitely going to get to this month (mostly because I already have these preordered or am going to author events where I plan to pick up a copy). I actually read Dear Martin back in July, but it’s one of my favorite books of this year, and I think I might reread it after I pick up a finished copy at Nic’s release party! (For the record, I’m also SO SO SO excited for Ta-Nehisi Coates’s new book coming out this month, but I just don’t think I’ll get to it in October.)

Backlist Books


I’m trying to do better at reading my owned physical books, and these are some I had on my shelves that felt perfect for fall reading.

That’s it for my TBR for October! What book are you most excited to read this month? Have you read any from my list?
