34 Must-Have Books Coming in October 2020

Autumn is officially here, and it’s the best season for cozying up with a good book. What’s better than sitting by the fire, nestled under a warm blanket with a hot beverage in hand, as you read a great book with only the rain outside as your soundtrack? That’s what I thought.

This fall, I have my eyes on these 34 new books hitting shelves in October 2020. It seems that this will be a great month for dark fantasies and thrillers, but I’ve also made space for historical fiction and important nonfiction. Which of these books are you interested in reading?
