Another month is almost over and that means it’s time for a list of anticipated September releases. This year has been full of so many books that we both want, so it’s time to see what to expect this month. Is September dangerous for our bank accounts? Probably!
Isabelle is in London as I’m typing this, so these are all the books I can’t wait to see. Some may be missing that Isabelle is looking forward to!
Sadie – Courtney Summers (September 4th)
This is a very talked about book in the bookish community. A lot of bookbloggers have given it very positive reviews. Sadie seems like a book that will keep you on the edge of your seat hoping that all will turn out okay.
Uncharted – Erin Cashman (September 4th)
This sounds like a creepy contemporary. Also a story of a character coming to terms with her mother’s death and accepting the circumstances.
Dare You to Lie – Amber Lynn Natusch (September 4th)
This book is described as a mix of Riverdale and Veronica Mars. I’m really excited for this book. I am honored to have an ARC and will be participating in the blog tour, so keep an eye on the blog. This author will also be doing a live chat in the Facebook group TBR & Beyond in September!
Two Dark Reigns – Kendare Blake (September 4th)
Both Isabelle & I are big fans of this series! We can’t wait to see how this story continues. We get this book next week, so we’re really excited. This is going to be our buddy review in September, so keep an eye out if you want to know what we thought of Two Dark Reigns.
Meet the Sky – McCall Hoyle (September 4th)
Getting stuck in a hurricane and being seperated from your family has go to be terrifying. Meet the Sky sounds like a very emotional contemporary. The main character seems like the type that needs to control everything, but with this storm, I guess she has to learn to let go!
All the Wandering Light – Heather Fawcett (September 4th)
Even the Darkest Stars is a book I’ve wanted to read since I heard about it. Unfortunately, I haven’t gotten around to it. I’m really hoping the sequel will get me to read the first one a bit faster. Some friends of mine really enjoyed it, so I really want to read it.
Kiss Me in Paris – Catherine Rider (September 4th)
I got Kiss Me in New York as my very first ARC from Netgalley last year. Even though I haven’t read it yet (I know, I need to be ashamed of myself, haha), these books seems really cute. Just the books for me: a light and fluffy read!
Not Even Bones – Rebecca Schaeffer (September 4th)
Dexter meets This Savage Song. That sounds like it’s going to be a very interesting combination. I think this is one I’m going to love or hate. Definitely a book for around Halloween though. I love that there are some darker books this month!
Summer Bird Blue – Akemi Dawn Bowman (September 11th)
This sounds like a very heartbreaking contemporary, but those are the ones that I love. On top of that the cover is beautiful. Books that have to do with music are often pretty interesting, so I can’t wait to see how the author combines that in this story.
I Do Not Trust You – Laura J. Burns & Melinda Metz (September 11th)
I have seen this book around quite a bit. Bookbloggers were getting ARCs and I was curious. I am not quite sure what to think after the sypnosis, but I am interested.
Rule – Ellen Goodlett (September 11th)
This is described as Three Dark Crowns meets Pretty Little Liars. This will either be done really good or really badly. I’m not sure which one it’s going to be. I have seen some mixed reviews on Goodreads, but I won’t let that stop me. I am curious to see what the author did with this.
Pride – Ibi Zoboi (September 11th)
I am always really interested in retellings. Pride is a retelling of Pride and Prejudice. I can say that I haven’t read any classics. Not the originals anyways, haha. We had that as a reading goals this year, but really failed. I like seeing retellings, because I do know a bit of what the stories are about. I can enjoy them more I think, because I don’t know what the story is supposed to be like.
Escaping From Houdini – Kerri Manascalco (September 18th)
Okay, I haven’t even read Stalking Jack the Ripper yet, but I really want to. I’m hoping by putting this on the list that I will pick it up sooner. I’ve decided to sign up for less blog tours the rest of the year, so I can get to series I’ve been wanting to start for awhile!
The Iron Flower – Laurie Forest (September 18th)
I loved The Black Witch and I’m happy I didn’t read it until we were this close to the release date of The Iron Flower. I am so curious to see how this story continues.
What the Woods Keep – Katy de Becerra (September 18th)
This is another story that seems like it’s going to be a darker read. Mystery, science fiction and a darker fantasy sounds like a really interesting. Heading home to discover the secrets of your childhood home sounds really interesting.
Strange Grace – Tessa Gratton (September 18th)
A witch made a pact with the devil, that can never turn out well! This sounds like a really dark fantasy and other good read for the dark and rainy evenings in our near future!
Analee in Real Life – Janelle Milanes (September 18th)
Having a boyfriend and a mother who are big fans of gaming, and meeting my boyfriend online, I love books that involve gaming and the online world. Sometimes it’s just what someone needs for extra support. I love seeing the character develop in books like this.
Things I’d Rather Do Than Die – Christine Hurley Deriso (September 18th)
The title is really catchy. Once I saw that I needed to know what this book was going to be about. When two students who couldn’t be more different are locked together in a room overnight, things get interesting. They find out things may not be what they seem.
This is Kind of an Epic Love Story – Kheryn Callender (September 18th)
A charming rom-com perfect for the dans of Simon vs. the Homosapiens agenda sounds like the description of a book that’s perfect for me! A romantic comedy is something that always puts me in a good mood. It can be a book or movie, both work for me.
Unbroken: 13 Stories Starring Disabled Teens (September 18th)
It’s so nice seeing that disabled teens are finally going to get stories they can relate to. This isn’t a subject that is the center of attention very often in YA. I am looking forward to reading this anthology. It’s always the question what it’s going to be like though, because sometimes stories in an anthology aren’t all as amazing.
Wildcard – Marie Lu (September 18th)
Warcross was a book that really surprised me last year. I figured I would enjoy it, but I didn’t know I would that much! I kind of guessed how the story was going to end, but I can’t wait to see how the turn of events changes this story!
A Blade so Black – L.L. McKinney (September 25th)
A Blade so Black is an ALice in Wonderland retelling and it sounds very interesting. This is a story often used in retellings, so I’m curious to see how the author turned this into a new story!
Vengeful – V.E. Schwab (September 25th)
Yet again, I haven’t read Vicious, but V.E. Schwab hasn’t written anything that I haven’t liked. Even though I still have a few books of hers to read, haha. I also love the new covers these books got!
The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein – Kiersten White (September 25th)
This is a book I have seen around the bookworld since it was announced. I’m not quite sure what to think of it, but I think it’s a perfect Halloween read. We’re heading to the darker months, so I need darker books.
The Caged Queen – Kristen Ciccarelli (September 25th)
We met this author last year and she is so sweet! I still have to finish The Last Namsara (I know, I am very ashamed). I believe The Caged Queen is from the POV of a different character, but I am very curious. The cover for this book is amazing!
September is another month full of new books we want! What books are you looking forward to in September?
