October - my favorite month of the year

October, the weather is starting to cool down and the new books are coming out. All told, I have 6 pre-orders that come out this month with at least one book coming out each Tuesday.

Anyone else have any books they are looking forward to coming out this month?

I feel you. I enjoy so much this season! I can't wait for the delivery of mine as well. What kind of genre do you enjoy most?

I'm looking forward to a few Oct/Nov UK releases that I'll have to wait until after the first of the year to purchase in the US.

The problem with living in a geo-restricted ebook purchasing world is that there's no accompanying geo-restriction on the marketing of those works (nor their reviews).

But there's still a few works I'm looking forward to being released in the US in Oct/Nov I'll be able to read.

Go to Kobo and take a trip to the US. Problem solved.

I'm assuming you meant "UK" since I live in the US already. But regardless...

Problem NOT solved. Lying is something I hope to never get comfortable doing. Especially for something as frivolous as wanting to buy an ebook a few months early.

And before others get themselves into a huff ... this all about me. Your personal moral codes are your own to define. Your reasons for being OK with the deception won't sway or interest me.

It might be different if the ebook was never going to be available for purchase in my location. But even then, I'd probably just have the print copy imported.

Apologies to the OP for the slight derailment. A few of the books that I'm looking forward to which are being released somewhere in the world (in ebook format) in October/November are:

The conclusion of J.P. Smythe's Australia trilogy Dark Made Dawn
Nick Harkaway's Gnomon
Andy Weir's Artemis
Elizabeth Bear's latest

SF and History mostly, though I did pick up Dan Brown's Origin (I guess that qualifies as fantasy).

SF
-Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, Book 3
-The Silver Mask
- Lost Legio IX - Marc Alan Edelheit
- The Monster Hunter Files - edited by Larry Correia


History
-The Storm before the Storm, by Mike Duncan (Rome from the Gracci brothers through the first Civil War with Marius and Sulla. Mike Duncan did the most excellent History of Rome podcast)
-The Second World War by Victor Davis Hanson

I'm strictly a summer person. I love lying outside in the sun absorbing lots of vit d, rather than relying on pills, reading about desert islands, romance, and far away sunny places. Cyd, one of my cats, rolls beside me and really does want his tummy rubbed.

I bought a bean bag last summer to lean on while reading. That purchase ended the sunny weather!
You can keep autumn and winter with its dull grey days. All the pre-Christmas releases are about winter and snow and Christmas.

Bah Humbug!

Give me a beach read in a summer garden.

I've never quite understood what qualifies as a "beach read," myself (assuming of course that the plot of said book doesn't actually unfold on a beach). Your stipulation about reading it in the garden means that it's not entirely dependent upon the place where the book gets read. I guess I've just always assumed it meant "long(ish) buzz-generating fiction."

Well... Ann Leckie's newest came out a few weeks early, it was due out in October, but it was pushed back. But others I am looking forward to:

The Tiger’s Daughter by K Arsenault Rivera
Endurance by Scott Kelly
Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks

I understand it to be a book purchased at your departure airport and left at your holiday accommodation on your return, having been read while sunbathing on the beach. Effectively a disposable book; back in the days when I used to haul books instead of an e-reader on holiday, these were the books I purchased at charity shops for pennies and (generally) left behind (I hate getting rid of books - unless I've replaced it with an ebook).

As far as I can see, they tend to be the most recent best seller.
