Looking Ahead: September, 2016

Hold on to your hats, kids. This list is going to be LONG. Because pretty much everything awesome is coming out this fall. September is a big book month.

September 3rd:

Miss Peregrine: Tales of the Peculiar by Ransom Riggs

I know what you're thinking, isn't this series over?! It is. This is apparently a companion book that has a bunch of short stories about some of the side characters in Miss Peregrine. I'm pretty apathetic about this series (I also still need to read the last book) but I enjoyed the side characters so I'm actually kind of interested in this one.

September 6th:

Everfair by Nisi Shawl

Adult alternate history. I'm a sucker for these things.

Also out this date: printed versions of the scripts of Welcome to Night Vale episodes. Night Vale fans, rejoice!

September 13th:

The Forgetting by Sharon Cameron

Sharon Cameron book, I'm here for anything she writes.

Sea of Ink and Gold Book 1: The Reader by Traci Chee

This is a pretty big buzzy book and one of my personal anticipated releases. I can't wait to get my hands on it.

The Peculiar Night of the Blue Heart by Lauren DeStefano

For some reason I can't seem to quit giving DeStefano more chances, despite not being overly impressed with her books in the past. Maybe her middle-grade reads will appeal to me more?

Laetitia Rodd Mystery Book 1: The Secrets of Wishtide by Kate Saunders

Yes, another historical mystery series. What can I say, I'm addicted to the genre.

Nova Project Book 1: Gamescape: Overworld by Emma Trevayne

Adult sci-fi/dystopian book that looks relatively interesting. I'll give it a look sometime.

Where Am I Now?: True Stories of Girlhood and Accidental Fame by Mara Wilson

The first of many awesome lady celeb books coming out this fall.

September 20th (aka, the day everything is coming out):

Kate Daniels 9: Magic Binds by Ilona Andrews

Having now finally caught up on this series, I can now read the new releases. Woohoo!

Worldwalker Trilogy Book 3: Witch's Pyre by Josephine Angelini

I seem to be unable to give up reading Angelini's books despite the fact that most of them are somewhat silly and cliche.

Three Dark Crowns Book 1 by Kendare Blake

I am here for anything Kendare Blake writes. I'm thrilled she's moved onto fantasy.

Flavia de Luce Book 8: Thrice the Brinded Cat Hath Mew'd by Alan Bradley

For the life of me, I don't understand why this series is sold as adult fiction. It's clearly middle-grade. I'm trying not to think it has something to do with it being a male author,'s getting hard. Still, it's a highly enjoyable series, and I will be reading this whenever I finally catch up. I'm on book 4, so not long now.

Kingdom on Fire Book 1: A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess

Another big buzzy book that looks very awesome. So many cool looking fantasy books out in September. It makes me very happy.

The Queens of Renthia Book 1: The Queen of Blood by Sarah Beth Durst

I'm here for anything Sarah Beth Durst does. I'm thrilled she's getting back into high fantasy and is finally doing a series.

Stalking Jack the Ripper Book 1 by Kerri Maniscalco

Mostly interested because of the title. That is a good title.

The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis

Thriller sort of book that has been getting lots of buzz. I've heard good things about Mindy McGinnis so I'll give it a look.

Stealing Snow Book 1 by Danielle Paige

Due to the low ratings on Goodreads I don't have high hopes for this one. But I'm giving it a shot since Dorothy Must Die surprised me so much. Plus, we all know I'm a sucker for the fairy-tale retellings.

Vassa in the Night by Sarah Porter

Another fairy-tale retelling that I'm reading mostly because I'm a sucker for them.

Metaltown by Kristen Simmons

I liked the Artlicle 5 trilogy a lot and like fairy-tale retellings, I'm a sucker for steampunk books.

September 27th:

Six of Crows Book 2: Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

I think everyone and their mother knows this one is coming out. But in case you didn't...

Shirley Jackson: A Rather Haunted Life by Ruth Franklin

Biography about the author of The Lottery, The Haunting of Hill House and so on? Yes please.

The Secret Keepers by Trenton Lee Stewart

I admit, I wasn't terribly into the Mysterious Benedict Society. But this sounds more my thing and I always give authors second chances if I've found their writing was good.
