From the new book by Stuart Turton, the author of very popular sci-fi thriller «The 7½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle» to a re-publication of «The Tower of Fools» by Andrzej Sapkowski, the author of the Witcher series, October is going to be one of the best book-releases month of this year!
Alix E. Harrow fans will get an opportunity to enjoy your beautiful writing once more, and V.E. Schwab fans get to see a different facet of their favorite author with the Adult / Historical Fiction book – «The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue», which I’m reading (and loving!) right now!
