Hot new books of October

The spookiest time of the year is reflected in this month's literary releases, including Susan Hill's supernatural thriller Dolly and Abigail Gibbs' vampire-led love-story The Dark Heroine. There's plenty of whimsy too, as Simon Tofield revives his famous pet in Simon's Cat Vs. The World! and William Kuhn imagines an incognito royal's clandestine day out in Mrs Queen Takes The Train.

Take a look at the best book releases of this month, below, and let us know your thoughts in the comments section or on Twitter
