Oktober böcker jag vill läsa

Jämfört med september är oktober en ganska lugn månad med böcker som jag vill läsa, vilket på ett sätt är ganska bra. Den här gången har jag även satt till serieboxar som kommer ut under månaden.

Jag kommer inte att sätta ut vad böckerna handlar om eftersom de är fortsättningar i en serie och så vill jag inte bli spoilad.

In the Afterlight (The Darkest Minds #3) av Alexandra Bracken
Jag har inte läst The Darkest Minds än, men det här en trilogi som jag verkligen ser fram emot att läsa.

Seeds of Iniquity (In the Company of Killers #4) av J.A. Redmerski
Jag har endast läst den första boken Killing Sarai som är en av mina favoriter.

Blue Lily, Lily Blue (The Raven Cycle #3) av Maggie Stiefvater
En till som jag inte har påbörjat, men en serie som jag ser fram emot att läsa..någon dag.

Nya serier

Fem nya serier som jag ser fram emot:
Exquisite Captive (Dark Caravan Cycle #1) av Heather Demetrios
The first book in the Dark Caravan Cycle, a modern fantasy-adventure trilogy about a gorgeous, fierce eighteen-year-old jinni who is pitted against two magnetic adversaries, both of whom want her—and need her—to make their wishes come true.

The Young Elites (The Young Elites #1) av Marie Lu
Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever. A decade ago, the deadly illness swept through her nation. Most of the infected perished, while many of the children who survived were left with strange markings. But some of the fever’s survivors are rumored to possess more than just scars—they are believed to have mysterious and powerful gifts, and though their identities remain secret, they have come to be called the Young Elites.

Lailah (The Styclar Saga #1) av Nikki Kelly 
The girl knows she’s different. She doesn’t age. She has no family. She has visions of a past life, but no clear clues as to what she is, or where she comes from. But there is a face in her dreams – a light that breaks through the darkness. She knows his name is Gabriel. On her way home from work, the girl encounters an injured stranger whose name is Jonah. Soon, she will understand that Jonah belongs to a generation of Vampires that serve even darker forces. Jonah and the few like him, are fighting with help from an unlikely Allie – a rogue Angel, named Gabriel.

(Jag märkte först nu att det är händer som sträcker sig upp och inte trädkvistar som jag trodde innan haha!!)

Snow Like Ashes av Sara Raasch
Sara Raasch’s debut fantasy is a lightning-fast story of loyalty, love, and controlling one’s destiny. Sixteen years ago the Kingdom of Winter was conquered and its citizens enslaved, leaving them without magic or a monarch. The Winterians’ only hope for freedom is the eight survivors who managed to escape, and who have been searching for the opportunity to steal back Winter’s magic and rebuild their kingdom ever since.

Talon (Talon #1) av Julie Kagawa
Long ago, dragons were hunted to near extinction by the Order of St. George, a legendary society of dragon slayers. Hiding in human form and growing their numbers in secret, the dragons of Talon have become strong and cunning, and they’re positioned to take over the world with humans none the wiser.


Black Ice av Becca Fitzpatrick
Britt Pfeiffer has trained to backpack the Teton Range, but she isn’t prepared when her ex-boyfriend, who still haunts her every thought, wants to join her. Before Britt can explore her feelings for Calvin, an unexpected blizzard forces her to seek shelter in a remote cabin, accepting the hospitality of its two very handsome occupants—but these men are fugitives, and they take her hostage.

The Cure for Dreaming av Cat Winters
Olivia Mead is a headstrong, independent girl—a suffragist—in an age that prefers its girls to be docile. It’s 1900 in Oregon, and Olivia’s father, concerned that she’s headed for trouble, convinces a stage mesmerist to try to hypnotize the rebellion out of her. But the hypnotist, an intriguing young man named Henri Reverie, gives her a terrible gift instead: she’s able to see people’s true natures, manifesting as visions of darkness and goodness, while also unable to speak her true thoughts out loud.

Of Scars and Stardust av Andrea Hannah
After her little sister mysteriously vanishes, seventeen-year-old Claire Graham has a choice to make: stay snug in her little corner of Manhattan with her dropout boyfriend, or go back to Ohio to face the hometown tragedy she's been dying to leave behind.
But the memories of that night still haunt her in the city, and as hard as she tries to forget what her psychiatrist calls her "delusions," Claire can't seem to escape the wolf's eyes or the blood-speckled snow. Delusion or reality, Claire knows she has to hold true to the most important promise she's ever made: to keep Ella safe. She must return to her sleepy hometown in order to find Ella and keep her hallucinations at bay before they strike again. But time is quickly running out, and as Ella's trail grows fainter, the wolves are becoming startlingly real.

Serie boxar
Det här är serier som varit ute en längre tid redan och nu kommer de passligt ut i boxar med alla böckerna. 

Daughter of Smoke & Bone, Days of Blood & Starlight, Dreams of Gods & Monsters av Laini Taylor
Äääntligen släpps boxen för Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogin. Har väntat så på att boxen ska släppas (visserligen kan man ju köpa en och en, men boxar är ju roliga och ha).

The Giver, Gathering Blue, The Messenger, Son av Lois Lowry
The Giver Quartet finns i många olika omslag. Jag fastnade för två utgåvor, 20th anniversary boxed set och denna, men valde den här utgåvan eftersom den är billigare än den förstnämnda.

Unwind, UnWholly, UnSouled, UnDivided av Neal Shusterman
Jag har inte tidigare varit så intresserad av den här serien, men Petra och andra recensioner har skrivit så gott om denna att jag till slut inte kunde motstå och nu längtar jag att få läsa Unwind!

Vilka böcker som ges ut i oktober ser ni fram emot att läsa?
