October is the month for The House of Hades by Rick Riordan, Just One Year by Gayle Forman (author of If I Stay), The Eye of Minds by James Dashner (The Maze Runner), Picture Me Gone by Meg Rosoff (How I Live Now), of course Allegiant by Veronica Roth, and we’ve just ordered these:

The Waking World, Tom Huddleston. Not to be confused with Tom Hiddleston (Loki in Thor (trailer looks good in 3D!)). “The Island is in peril. For years, bloodthirsty Marauder pirates have raided along the coast, carrying off goods and cattle. Now they’re growing bolder, striking further inland, even taking slaves to man their black ships. An invasion is underway. As the son of a wealthy Law, young Aran should be safe. The underground farmstead of Hawk’s Cross lies miles from the sea, and even the killing winds that sweep down from the moors can’t penetrate those solid steel gates. But Aran doesn’t want to be safe, he wants to be a warrior: to fight for his friends, his family and his home. Many tales have been told of the boy who became our greatest King. Very few have spoken of the future…” (goodreads.com)

Elegy, Amanda Hocking. The fourth and final book in the Watersong series. “Now that Gemma holds the key to breaking the siren curse, the stakes have never been higher. At last, a future with those she loves – and a romance with Alex – is close enough to touch… but not if Penn has anything to say about it. Penn is more determined than ever to have Daniel for her own and to destroy Gemma and Harper along the way, and Penn always gets what she wants. Now a final explosive battle is about to begin, and the winner will take everything Gemma holds dear.” (goodreads.com)

Homeland, Cory Doctorow. The sequel to Little Brother. “A few years [after Little Brother], California’s economy collapses, but Marcus’s hacktivist past lands him a job as webmaster for a crusading politician who promises reform. Soon his onetime girlfriend Masha emerges from the political underground to gift him with a thumbdrive containing a Wikileaks-style cable-dump of hard evidence of corporate and governmental perfidy. It’s incendiary stuff – and if Masha goes missing, Marcus is supposed to release it to the world. Then Marcus sees Masha being kidnapped by the same government agents who detained and tortured Marcus years earlier. Marcus can leak the archive Masha gave him – but he can’t admit to being the leaker, because that will cost his employer the election. He’s surrounded by friends who remember what he did a few years ago and regard him as a hacker hero. He can’t even attend a demonstration without being dragged onstage and handed a mike. He’s not at all sure that just dumping the archive onto the Internet, before he’s gone through its millions of words, is the right thing to do. Meanwhile, people are beginning to shadow him, people who look like they’re used to inflicting pain until they get the answers they want.” (goodreads.com)
