Top 10 must-reads of October

The month sees the long-awaited return of the woman who made granny pants famous. The third installment of Bridget Jones’ Diary is published on the 10th, and we can’t wait. Also out this month is one of the best books of the year, Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch, a masterpiece of a novel that opens with a terrorist attack on New York. We also have a modern take on Sense and Sensibility from Joanna Trollope, and a memoir that is unlike anything else you’ve read. You won’t need any excuse to stay in and read now the heating is officially on, and luckily there’s plenty of choice.
