Anticipated Autumn Book Releases 2022

Autumn is my favorite time of year. It’s the prefect season for rainy weather, crisp mornings, pots of hot tea, soft blankets, and cozying up with a good book. When I’m not reading during fall, I spend a lot of my free time hitting up bookstores to add to my ever-expanding TBR shelves. This autumn has some big names dropping new books, so I’ll share with you which ones I plan on taking home with me.

My preferences generally swing towards fantasy, sci-fi, horror, and mysteries. But I do enjoy a good non-fiction from time to time and have been known to escape into a middle grade tale. If you want to preorder any of the titles I’ve shared below, feel free to hit the links. I don’t get any compensation for them.

September (Late) Releases

The Golden Enclaves
Author: Naomi Novik
Release Date: September 27th

Galadriel ‘El’ has made it out of the Scholomance alive, along with every one of the other students. She’s thwarted the prophecy and saved the enclavers and avoided turning into some “monstrous dark witch” to do it. Things should be good for her, but fate is cruel and El finds that she must now fight to save the enclaves from a new, bigger threat, and rescue Orion from the Scholomance. She just escaped the school, but now she needs to find a way back inside.

The Golden Enclaves is the third and final part to the The Scholomance trilogy.

I’m looking forward to the ending of this trilogy. I enjoyed the first to books quite a bit with the dark academia vibes and interesting magic system. While this book is tagged as Young Adult and involves students, it does not necessarily read as a book for younger people. Some themes are on the darker side (being a malificer for example) and I highly recommend checking it out, even if you’re an older reader like me.
