October New Books Megalist: The Sequel!

Somehow, it turns out that I read more new books coming out in October than any other month this year. And so many of them come out today, so I just had to do another big list! (“Oh, no, Liberty, not MORE books. Whatever shall we do?”) Yep, here’s a kitten-ton of great things to read. You can hear about a few of these books on this week’s episode of the All the Books! Rebecca and I talked about amazing books we loved, such as The Invisible Life of Euridice Gusmao, Code Girls, and Forest of a Thousand Lanterns.

Sponsored by Feminist Icon Cross-Stitch by Anna Fleiss and Lauren Mancuso

FEMINIST ICON CROSS-STITCH puts a new spin on smashing the patriarchy. Featuring inspiring bios and embroidery patterns of empowering sayings and trailblazing women – like Gloria Steinem, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and Beyoncé – this book is a celebration of everyone’s favorite lady heroes. With an introduction on modern feminism and instructions on the basics of cross-stitch, FEMINIST ICON CROSS-STITCH is perfect for veteran crafters who have already knit their own pussy hats and those who are new to the craftivism game. As the book says, the future is female – so start cross-stitching and let these powerhouse women inspire you to make herstory!

(And like last time, I’m putting a ❤️ next to the books that I have read and loved. There are soooo many more on this list that I can’t wait to read!)
