October 2023 Most Anticipated

How in the world do we only have three months left of 2023. October is the month that I want all the cozy fall, witchy, and horror reads! I love having a good witchy read to curl up with while the husband watches football all weekend! So, while there are a ton of books coming out in October that I’m excited about, the lack of witchy reads is making me a little sad. However, there is plenty of variety and even some holiday books coming out that I’m excited for. Which if you’re already getting into the holiday spirit, these will be perfect new releases for you.

As I always do in my ‘Most Anticipated’ write ups, I’m sharing a few that I’m most excited for first. I then separate out new releases by their release date. I don’t go into too much detail on each of the books being released, because we’d be here forever, but you can always click on the image of the book to get more info.

The below are my top must reads coming out in October! Five of my Most Anticipated are authors I’ve enjoyed reading from previously and I actually have copies of each of these to read. Melissa Broder is the only author I haven’t read out of these six books, but I heard her book Milk Fed was fabulous, so I’m anxious to jump into this one.

I have already finished reading My Darling Girl and once again Jennifer McMahon has written a complex and chilling page turning. I’ll have my review up later this week.

In the coming weeks I will have lots of reviews for more of these October releases, so be sure to subscribe to get weekly updates from SPEAKING OF…, and make sure to follow us on Instagram @speakingof.books.
