Most Anticipated Releases of 2019: October to December

Hard to believe it’s fall already! It’s time to look ahead to the Science Fiction and Fantasy reads I’m most excited about in the months of October to December. Not only is it fun to organize my reading and to make lists, they also have the added benefit of focusing my attention to the highly anticipated releases that I’d like to check out. This year, I decided to try something a little different by posting a list every quarter to make the TBR more manageable. There’s already an impressive tower of books on my to-read pile, and while I’m under no illusions that I’ll be able to read them all, hopefully I can get to most of them (and also put some new books on people’s radars)!

So what are your most anticipated releases for the final quarter of 2019? OMG, my October TBR, help!

  1. The Vine Witch and Rory Thorne have me interested, and I really need to get back to Dispel Illusion too. I was going to jump right into the second book and got sidetracked.


  2. The main three on here that I can’t wait for are The Queen Of Nothing, The Beautiful & Ninth House but I have quite a few on my TBR. Ive actually already reserved Angel Mage at the library too ☺️ and I’ve opened a few that I hadn’t heard of before in new tabs to check out.

    I hope you get most of these read and enjoy them (: my Anticipated Reads for October is insane too 😅


  3. One addendum- Where Gods Fear to Go is out in December. Otherwise you’re list is perfect! But… ummm… how’re you gonna read 18 books next month?


  4. There are way too many good books coming out. Looks like it might slow down a tad in December which is good because I’ll need that time to catch up! Plus all of us bloggers know we’ll be busy in December planning for 2020!


    • Yes, December is usually my catch up month because it’s so quiet. Probably why my mailbox has been a bit quiet these days too, since ARCs usually drop about 3 months before release date, and not much is coming out in December!


  5. Wonderful! Queen of Nothing is almost here! I just finished The Wicked King today and I can’t wait to see how the trilogy wraps up – it could move in so many unpredictable directions…
    And of course the third book in McClellan’s new trilogy…December cannot be here soon enough . 🙂


  6. Dear God the October TBR just about gave me a panic attack, SO MANY of these are on my own list!! I’ve already had to restrain myself from grabbing things like Library of the Unwritten because I already have so many things in my stack. Fortuna, Throne of the Five Winds, Guinevere Deception, Starsight….TOO MUCH MAKE IT STOP! (But I want them all, so don’t stop?)


    • I know, October is going to do me in, lol. I doubt I’ll get to all the books here, but I’ll try…and I guess that’s what a lighter December is for – catching up! Dang, reminds me, I should start planning a bit so I’ll have some sci-fi books for Sci Fi November!

  7. I love this post – just looking at all these books makes me happy, it also makes me incredibly tense (just thinking of the books I have for October) and have a serious onset of major grabby hands but I do have a few of these waiting to be read. I’m also going to camp at NG for the Mark Lawrence book! I’m glad December looks like a slightly more reasonable book – time to catch up and hopefully January too.
    Great post.
    Lynn 😀


  8. So many books, we need more time! I’m a little more than 1/3 of the way through The Throne of the Five Winds. It’s slowly paced and feels like a grand political epic fantasy, perhaps similar to how Dune was full of dynastic politics. There are many characters, interesting cultures, and lots of details, many with footnotes explaining words and phrases. It takes some quiet time and concentration to read (at least for me), but I’m very much enjoying it, more so the further in I get.

    I’ll be watching to see which of the books you’re able to get to and what you think of them. Thanks for the great list!
