October 2020 YA Book Releases

Here’s a rundown of this month’s upcoming releases.


We’re trying something new at Bookstacked: a monthly rundown of upcoming YA book titles. We’re experimenting with the format and trying to figure out the best way to present all of the information at the moment. Feel free to chime in the comments if you have any thoughts or ideas!

Time to pull out the sweaters, pumpkin spice and (who can forget) candy! October is finally here which means plenty of new YA titles hitting the shelf this month.

October will see big releases from author V.E. Schwab as well as Rick Riordan, who is concluding his iconic Camp Half-Blood Chronicles with The Trials of Apollo: The Tower of Nero.
