Hi, friends!

Here are the October book releases that I’m really looking forward to. There are so many spooky books coming out in October! Here are some of the books that I plan to watch out for at the library or book deals. My personal favorite place to look for reviews on new books is Kirkus Reviews. So on this post, I will include the book cover, link to the review, genre, audience, and brief comment from the Kirkus review. Maybe you will add some of these books to your list!
