Monthly Book Releases

Most Anticipated October 2016 Releases

Happy 1st of October everyone!! As a monthly tradition, I’m going to be talking about my most anticipated October releases in today’s blogpost. Thankfully, there are only a couple of new releases that I’m super excited for because all the September releases burned a hole in my wallet 😦 I’m excited to be talking to you about all the books I’ve listed below, so let’s get started!
1. Holding Up The Universe by Jennifer Niven 
Release Date : 4 October 2016 
This is Jennifer Niven’s newest contemporary novel and the summary is pretty long so I doubt I’ll be able to summarise it well. I already got an early copy of this and I can’t wait to dive into this book! All The Bright Places was such an amazing and heartbreaking novel and I’m sure I’ll love Holding Up The Universe as well 🙂
2. The Lovely Reckless by Kami Garcier 
Release Date : 4 October 2016
The Lovely Reckless follows a girl named Frankie who moves in with her father after an incident and who is also trying to put her boyfriend’s death behind her. She then meets Marco who is a super sexy street-racer and a relationship starts to bloom. However, Marco is keeping a secret that could break them apart.
I’ve never read any of Kami Garcier’s other books but I’ve heard great reviews about this and it definitely sounds right up my alley!
3. Replica by Lauren Oliver
Release Date : 4 October 2016
Replica has been getting so much hype ever since people started receiving ARCs at BEA and of course, I’m joining in the hype. Replica is a YA sci-fi / dystopian novel and here is the synopsis ( taken from Goodreads ) :
Gemma has been in and out of hospitals since she was born. ‘A sickly child’, her lonely life to date has revolved around her home, school and one best friend, Alice. But when she discovers her father’s connection to the top secret Haven research facility, currently hitting the headlines and under siege by religious fanatics, Gemma decides to leave the sanctuary she’s always known to find the institute and determine what is going on there and why her father’s name seems inextricably linked to it.
Amidst the frenzy outside the institute’s walls, Lyra – or number 24 as she is known as at Haven – and a fellow experimental subject known only as 72, manage to escape. Encountering a world they never knew existed outside the walls of their secluded upbringing , they meet Gemma and, as they try to understand Haven’s purpose together, they uncover some earth-shattering secrets that will change the lives of both girls forever…
Half of the book is told in Gemma’s point of view and the other half is told in Lyra’s point of view which I find really cool. Once again, I haven’t read any of Lauren Oliver’s other books but I really hope that Replica will live up to my expectations!! 😀
4. Gemina by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff 
Release Date : 15 October 2016 
Lastly, we have Gemina! Gemina is the sequel to Illuminae which is another YA sci-fi / dystopian novel. I received Illuminae for my birthday and I’m not sure when I’ll get to it but I’m still really excited for the release of Gemina because everyone says that Illuminae is AMAZING.
Those are all the October releases that I’m excited for and I hope you enjoyed the post! Do let me know in the comments if you’re excited for any of the books I mentioned and other October releases that I might have missed out. Thank you so much for reading and I’ll see you in my next post, have a lovely weekend ❤

  1. I was lucky enough to grab an ARC of Replica at B&N’s Teen Book Fest in late June. I’m hoping to maybe be able to read it soon because my monthly reading lists have been ridiculous lately.
