Fresh on the Shelf - October 2018 Book Releases + Giveaway

Happy October, Cupcakes!👻

I'm so excited for this month! It's, by far, my favorite of the year because;

a) The weather is AMAZING!
b) I absolutely adore the gorgeous colors of the changing leaves
c) Halloween
d) All the incredible spooky films and books I can binge watch/read!

With that said, I'm very eager to get this month started! Halloween plans aside, and oh-boy do I have plenty of them, I absolutely cannot wait for this month's amazing releases! Although lacking in the spooky department, I am so excited for Laini Taylor's upcoming release, along with Tahereh Mafi's, Ransom Riggs', David Levithan's, Sarah J. Maas', Becky Albertalli's and Adam Silvera's books. So much to read, so little time!

Which October 2018 book are you most anticipating? Be sure to let me know in the comment section below, along with any ways you're planning on celebrating Halloween this year (if you do celebrate, that is). I'll be doing some haunted houses and ghost walks. Spooky!

Happy Reading!📚

Happy Reading,


  1. No plans for me, just staying in and reading :-P Thanks for the chance to win!

  2. A friend is having a party so we're dressing up!

  3. Looking forward to reading Sawkill Girls.

    Celebrating Halloween by taking our toddler trick or treating for the first time. Still deciding on a costume but she keeps picking Paw Patrol and Peppa Pig anytime we look at the stores. I'm hoping for something different.

  4. I plan on going trick or treating with my friend. I have so much fun dressing up and hanging out (and who doesn't like free candy?).

  5. Yes we love celebrating Halloween. We make Halloween themed supper, hand out lots of candy, everyone welcome too.

  6. Since we don't get to celebrate THE BEST DAY OF THE YEAR here in my country, I'll be in my room, watching Hocus Pocus and stuffing my mouth with chocolate! Sounds like a good plan, right? lol Have a Happy Halloween, Wendy!

  7. YES!! I'm having a Halloween party with some friends from work. We won't be dressing up, but we'll watch some spooky movies =D =D =D
