My most anticipated Autumn 2018 releases

As a self declared basic bitch, you know that I love me some Autumn/Fall. Pumpkin spice lattes, ankle boots, cozy pyjamas, and of course, perfect weather for staying inside and reading a book. So here are my most anticipated books coming out this Autumn.

Autumn fall releases books
City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab
Out now

I'm a big fan of Victoria Schwab's books, the Shades of Magic trilogy is one of my favourites so when I heard that she was releasing a book about ghost hunters, well of course it piqued my interest.
City of Ghosts main character is Cassidy Blake and her parents are ghost hunters with their own reality TV show, but Cass can actually see ghosts and talk to them, her best friend is even a ghost.
For the new TV season her parents and Cass head to Scotland (hello yes perfect setting) and there Cass finds out that not all ghosts are friendly, and not all people who can talk to ghosts like she can want to keep them around either.


Autumn fall releases booksDry by Neal Shusterman & Jarrod Shusterman
Release Date: October 4th

Neal Shusterman is another one of my favourite authors. I read Scythe and Thunder Head this year and they are definitely in my top 5 reads of the year. Neal writes dystopian fiction incredibly, it's also very realistic and Dry looks like it will follow this trend too.
Dry is about a city in the middle of a draught so people are trying to be more concsious with their water, no watering the law, don't fill up a pool, don't spend too long in the shower etc.
Before long the water dries out and a quiet suburban street turns into a war zone.

Autumn fall releases books

The Corset by Laura Purcell
Release Date: September 20th

The Silent Companions was one of my top reads from 2017. Seriously if you like a good creepy horror book you definitely need to check it out. The Silent companions was Laura Purcell's first book so I'm very excited to see that she has a new one coming out so soon and it once again sounds suitably spooky and supernatural.
The Corset follows two young women, Dorothea is wealthy and beautiful and Ruth is awaiting trial for murder. They cross paths when one Dorothea does some charity work at the prison Ruth is residing at. Things take an unusual turn when Ruth insists her crimes are due to a supernatural power,


Autumn fall releases booksA Spark of Light by Jodi Picoult
Release Date: October 30th

I've never read a book by Jodi Picoult, but I have heard nothing but good things. Her books are apparently beautifully written and she writes about very emotive and serious topics.
A Spark of Light is no exception to this. Set at a women's health clinic, a gunman bursts in unexpectedly and takes open fire. Hugh McElroy, a police hostage negotiator is rushed to the scene but upon arrival he finds out that his fifteen year old daughter is inside the clinic. This sounds intense and enthralling and has catapulted itself right up my to be read list.

Autumn fall releases booksThe Curses by Laure Eve
Release Date: September 6th

Last up on my list is The Curses, which is a sequel to The Graces (my review here) which I read and really enjoyed last year!
The Graces are a mystical family who everyone wants to be friends with. In the first book in the series, River is a girl who is obsessed with the Grace family and wants to get to know them and their secrets. In the follow up book The Curses it seems like we follow the Grace family more closely in the aftermath of what happens in the first book. I do love me a good sequel!



So there we have five releases I am very excited for. I've also just learnt that Starbucks are releasing a maple latte which would be a perfect accompaniment to any reading session. What books are you excited about this upcoming season?
