Today’s post is about the books I’m looking forward to reading that are going to be published in September.
I seriously can’t believe how fast time has flown this year. I know I say that in every monthly post, but seriously. It feels like April was only yesterday. We’re already nearing September. September, people!
So here are the books that I’m looking forward to reading, which are going to be published in this fast approaching September!
- Friend Request by Laura Marshall – Fiction, Thriller, Mystery, Psychological Thriller
I have heard nothing but great things about Friend Request. And the synopsis is intriguing to me as well. When someone is supposed to be dead, why would they send you a friend request?
- Annie on My Mind by Nancy Garden — Young Adult, LGBTQIA
Annie on My Mind has a few things going for it that I’m intrigued about. The first is that apparently Annie on My Mind is the first of its’ kind to positively portray a lesbian relationship. Secondly, Liza and Annie will face problems with other people and in their lives if they truly want to continue with their relationship. There’s conflict between the families, and at their schools. They’ll discover that it’ll take more than love for their relationship to succeed.
- The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding A Fiendish Arrangement by Alexandra Bracken — Middle Grade, Fantasy
I’ve read somewhere that The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding is the perfect Autumn book. I so want to test that! I’m also looking forward to the Fantasy aspects of the book.
- Dreamfall (Dreamfall, #1) by Amy Plum — Young Adult Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror
Dreamfall has a truly intriguing synopsis.
“Cata Cordova suffers from such debilitating insomnia that she agreed to take part in an experimental new procedure. She thought things couldn’t get any worse…but she was terribly wrong.
Soon after the experiment begins, there’s a malfunction with the lab equipment, and Cata and six other teen patients are plunged into a shared dreamworld with no memory of how they got there. Even worse, they come to the chilling realization that they are trapped in a place where their worst nightmares have come to life.”
As much as I’m interested in Dreamfall, I’m actually worried that I won’t end up liking the book. Some of the synopsis sounds similar to another book that I’ve read and ended up hating.
- My Sister’s Bones by Nuala Ellwood — Fiction, Mystery, Thriller
My Sister’s Bones paints a story in my mind that, when I get around to reading it, I don’t think I’ll forget about it. There aren’t many book synopsis’ out there that can both excite me and give me chills but My Sister’s Bones definitely has! I want to discover the truth of what secrets are lurking in the Rafter house so badly!
- Warcross (Warcross, #1) by Marie Lu — Young Adult Science Fiction
Putting aside all the great things I keep hearing all about Warcross aside, I’m interested in what Warcross will give us.
- Before She Ignites (Fallen Islea Trilogy, #1) by Jodi Meadows — Young Adult Fantasy / Dragons
I’ve been interested in Before She Ignites for such a long time now that the closer we get to the “due date” publication date, the more I forget that this book exists. I just need Before She Ignites to be an interesting book.
- Magicians Impossible by Brad Abraham — Fantasy
From the reading the synopsis to Magicians Impossible, it sounds like the book will have a sequel, but on Goodreads, so far, its a standalone. I’m interested in MI because it sounds like a magical/fantasy version of Mission Impossible. Which if that’s the case, then Magicians Impossible will be one heck of a book.
- A Poison Dark and Drowning (Kingdom on Fire, #2) by Jessica Cluess – Young Adult, Fantasy, Historical
A Poison Dark and Drowning is the second book to A Shadow Bright and Burning. The first book was kind of interesting. There were quite a few interesting bits to the first book, but otherwise I found the book lacking. Hopefully, A Poison Dark and Drowning will elaborate more on certain topics and storylines.
- There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins — Young Adult Horror, Mystery, Thriller, Contemporary
There’s not much said about There’s Someone Inside Your House. I hope that There’s Someone Inside Your House will have me on the edge of my seat. I’m especially excited for this novel since Perkins’ books are usually more of a fluffly type romance novel, and There’s Someone Inside Your House is apparently a Horror novel.
- The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic by Leigh Bardugo — Young Adult Fantasy / Short Stories
I first heard of The Language of Thorns on Instagram. I saw an animated version of the cover, in what I believe was a cover reveal. Nevertheless, the synopsis is beautifully written, and if the rest of the book is like that, then I think I’ll fall in-love with this book quickly.
