Coffee and… October Books I’m Looking Forward To

This week, my coffee and I are looking at next month’s releases, and one of us is getting very excited.

coffee and...

The Coffee:

This week I’m drinking another Clifton coffee: the Sopacdi D.R Congo. This one has big fruity flavours and tastes delicious.

The Books:

Feminists Don’t Wear Pink and Other Lies, curated by Scarlett Curtis. I recently read and reviewed a sampler of this one (see here). I’m not usually much of a non-fiction reader, but this book contains the stories of many women and how they relate to the “f” word, and I am really looking forward to it.

Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor. I LOVE Laini Taylor’s work. Daughter of Smoke and Bone blew me away and remains a firm favourite. Strange the Dreamer was another level of awesome. The ending really stuck with me and I cannot wait to see where this story is going next. Bring it on.

Wundersmith: The Calling of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend. Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow is one of the best books I have read. Probably ever. I adored Morrigan and her adventures so obviously I’m looking forward to more story from this world. I am also dying to see what this hardback looks like naked, because it’s predecessor was an absolute stunner.

The Illustrated Tales of Beedle the Bard by J. K. Rowling and Chris Riddell. Do I need to explain why I want this in my life? I am a huge Harry Potter fan, and S is growing into his love of the fandom also, so I am hoping this will be a great book we can enjoy together. With this duo in charge, how could it not be?

Snowglobe by Amy Wilson. In the last month I have read two of Amy Wilson’s books based on Steph‘s recommendations and they were both outstanding. Amy is now on my instant buy list. I will read all the things she ever writes.

A Storm of Ice and Stars by Lisa Ludekke. I really enjoyed Lisa’s first book A Shiver of Snow and Sky. This book is set in the same world. After reading a sampler I got at YALC, I fell in love with Janna and was utterly gripped by her story. I am really excited to read more.

City of Dust by Michelle Kenney. Michelle’s first book Book of Fire was one I enjoyed last year. I am definitely intrigued to see where this story is going and I have seen some very positive early reviews. I also got an early copy to read, which I’m looking forward to diving into.

Those are the books I’m excited for in October. What do you have your eye on?
