The new romance releases post is back for October!

I’m settling into the autumn season, eager to break out my favorite sweaters and boots now that cooler weather has arrived here in Tennessee.  I am not the biggest fan of cold weather, but any excuse to cuddle up with a cozy blanket, a hot drink, and a good book is fine by me.

Here are the 12 New Romance Books for October 2022 that I am adding to my TBR this month. Among my most-anticipated romance book releases in October are:

  • Just Like Magic by Sarah Hogle — I loved her first book, You Deserve Each Other, so I am really hoping for a magical holiday story.
  • It Starts with Us by Colleen Hoover — I am curious to see what happens with Atlas and Lily after the end of It Ends with Us (read my review here).
  • I couldn’t resist including Blackmail and Bibingka by Mia P. Manansala on my list this month — It’s part of a cozy mystery series with hints of romance that I have enjoyed since book one, and I am really looking forward to reading more.
