This post will do what it says on the tin, listing the many pre-orders which landed on my Kindle app (unless otherwise stated) during October. All links are to Goodreads.
Life Undercover by Amaryllis Fox – recruited by the CIA when she was only 21, this is her memoir of her life as an operative
The Pursuit by Joyce Carol Oates – a woman with a haunted past, a husband trying to get to the bottom of it all
Ghoster by Jason Arnopp – Kate Collins has been ghosted. She was supposed to be moving in with her new boyfriend Scott, but all she finds after relocating to Brighton is an empty apartment. Scott has vanished. His possessions have all disappeared. Except for his mobile phone.
The Grace Year by Kim Liggett, this is apparently “A speculative thriller in the vein of The Handmaid’s Tale and The Power“
Starve Acre by Andrew Michael Hurley – […] a novel about the way in which grief splits the world in two and how, in searching for hope, we can so easily unearth horror.
The Reddening by Adam Nevill – given the cover, if there is not at least one werewolf in this folk horror novel then I shall be severely disappointed.
Interference by Sue Burke – the second novel in the Semiosis Duology; I already have, but not yet read, the first one….
Ormeshadow by Priya Sharma – short fantasy, coming-of-age, all about the land.
Sisters of the Vast Black by Lina Rather – all about the Sisters of the Order of St Rita and their mission. In space. That’s right – Nuns in Space!
And a flurry of crime novels:
- Dark Pattern by Andrew Mayne – The Naturalist #4
- Sherlock Holmes and the Christmas Demon by James Lovegrove
- The Benefit of Hindsight by Susan Hill – Simon Serrailler #10
- Bryant & May: England’s Finest by Christopher Fowler
Let me know if there is anything in this list that captures your interest, or that you’ve already read.
