October is ripe with sweet, savory romances to indulge our literary sweet tooth. Here’s what we’re reading.

Happy October, romance readers! The spooky season is upon us, and while this year’s Halloween celebrations are sure to be different, our need to read is the same.

New romances are here, and they’re in need of our attention. So take a break from decorating, set aside your costume template, and put down your candy shopping list for a minute. We’d like to share this month’s romance releases with you for those in-between moments when you want time for yourself outside of the hubbub of the holiday spirit.

October’s selections include a reunion on the worst Halloween ever, fandom best friends meeting in real life, a star-studded Cinderella retelling, a second chance between a songwriter and the record executive that broke her heart, a choice between magic and love, and an unexpected romance with a childhood friend.

Think of October’s romance list as an assorted bag of literary candy. There’s sure to be something savory, something that will satisfy your romance sweet tooth as we move forward into the back half of the year. All you’ve got to do is pick one or two (or perhaps them all) and enjoy. A good romance always hits the spot no matter the season.
