The Waterstones Round Up: October's Best Books
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, as we run through the finest publishing for October. Revealing autobiographies from A-list stars jostle for position with eagerly anticipated new fiction and some sumptuous volumes that make the ideal gifts for bookworms. There is the dual return of the nation's leading spy novelist and its favourite fantasy author, as well as stunning popular science, history and the music memoir to end all music memoirs. Immerse yourself in the litany of literary loveliness below.
Some books defy easy categorisation but are so spectacular we just have to shout about them. One such volume that is top of many of our booksellers' Christmas lists is Charlie Mackesy's inspirational The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse.
