What I'm Reading Next (26)

October brings cooler temperatures, pumpkins, falling leaves, and Halloween. In honor of the new season, I usually like to read a few spooky/atmospheric books; however, I find myself gravitating more towards historical fiction.  Here are the books that I hope to read this month. 

The Fountains of Silence by Ruta Sepetys - I'll read anything she writes. I am so excited for her latest novel, which takes place in Spain during Franco, the fascist dictator's reign.

Twice in a Blue Moon by Christina Lauren - Get ready for a new Christina Lauren novel! Woo hoo! 

10 Blind Dates by Ashley Elston - This sounds like the cutest YA novel ever featuring family, blind dates, and Christmas break!

Glow of the Fireflies by Lindsey Duga 
I'm always on the hunt for a good YA fantasy and I like that this one includes magic--a perfect book for October!

Still waiting to be read from last month:

Secrets of the Mist by Kate Ryder - I think fall is the perfect time to read a timeslip novel. This one takes place in England.  

The First Lady and the Rebel by Susan Higginbotham - I love a good historical read in the fall. This one depicts two sisters on the separate sides of history: Mary Todd Lincoln and Emily Todd Helm.

Marilla of Green Gables by Sarah McCoy - I love all things Anne of Green Gables and I feel like fall is the perfect time to dive into this one.  

What books do you hope to cozy up with this October? Let me know in the comments.


  1. I just finished Anne of Green Gables, so I'm really interested in a story about Marilla!

    1. I have been meaning to read it for a year now! Fingers crossed I can find the time this fall. Thanks for dropping by, Angela!

  2. So looking forward to the new Christina Lauren! And I definitely need to start reading Ruta Sepetys - her books look so good, but I just haven't gotten to one yet!

    1. Ruta's books are awesome, especially if you enjoy historical fiction. I am looking forward to the new Chrisitna Lauren book as well. Fingers crossed it doesn't disappoint. Thanks for visiting, Michele!

  3. I want to read the first two on your list as well. Especially that Ruta Sepetys one!

    Happy reading, Christina!

    1. I am almost done with Ruta's latest book and it's very good. I hope you can read it soon! Thanks for visiting, Joy!


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
