Book Releases September 2019
It is September already, this year is flying by. All I really did was have a baby and read a couple of books. A year ago I got married, so weird. Life is strange.
But with the changing of the month new releases are here again and these are the five books I am looking forward to in September.
Darkdawn (Nevernight #3) by Jay Kristoff
The Girl the Sea Gave Back (Sky in the Deep #2) by Adrianne Young
Tunnel of Bones (Cassidy Blake #2) by Victoria Schwab
Wayward Son (Simon Snow #2) by Rainbow Rowell
Unpregnant by Jenni Hendriks and Ted Caplan
Darkdawn (Nevernight #3) by Jay Kristoff (September 3)
A ruthless young assassin’s journey for revenge comes to a stunning end in the conclusion of this acclaimed epic fantasy trilogy.
The Republic of Itreya is in chaos. Mia Corvere has assassinated Cardinal Duomo and rumors of Consul Scaeva’s death ripple through the street of Godsgrave like wildfire. But buried beneath those same streets, deep in the ancient city’s bones, lies a secret that will change the Republic forever.
Mia and her brother Jonnen must journey through the depths of the ancient metropolis. Their quest will take them through the Godsgrave underdark, across the Sea of Swords, back to the library of the Quiet Mountain and the poisoned blades of Mia’s old mentors, and at last the fabled Crown of the Moon. There, Mia will at last discover the origins of the darkin, and learn the destiny that lies in store for her and her world. But with the three suns now in descent, and Truedark on the horizon, will she survive?
I really enjoyed Nevernight and Godsgrave was also good, I am looking forward to finishing this trilogy. Jay is a fantastic author and I enjoy most of what he writes.
The Girl the Sea Gave Back (Sky in the Deep #2) by Adrienne Young (September 3)
For as long as she can remember, Tova has lived among the Svell, the people who found her washed ashore as a child and use her for her gift as a Truthtongue. Her own home and clan are long-faded memories, but the sacred symbols and staves inked over every inch of her skin mark her as one who can cast the rune stones and see into the future. She has found a fragile place among those who fear her, but when two clans to the east bury their age-old blood feud and join together as one, her world is dangerously close to collapse.
For the first time in generations, the leaders of the Svell are divided. Should they maintain peace or go to war with the allied clans to protect their newfound power? And when their chieftain looks to Tova to cast the stones, she sets into motion a series of events that will not only change the landscape of the mainland forever but will give her something she believed she could never have again—a home.
This book is super. I hope to have a review up in release week, but I am out of town without a laptop. I am still going to give it a try though. Look forward to seeing it here in a couple of days.
Tunnel of Bones (Cassidy Blake #2) by Victoria Schwab (September 3)
Trouble is haunting Cassidy Blake . . . even more than usual.
She (plus her ghost best friend, Jacob, of course) are in Paris, where Cass’s parents are filming their TV show about the world’s most haunted cities. Sure, it’s fun eating croissants and seeing the Eiffel Tower, but there’s true ghostly danger lurking beneath Paris, in the creepy underground Catacombs.
When Cass accidentally awakens a frighteningly strong spirit, she must rely on her still-growing skills as a ghosthunter — and turn to friends both old and new to help her unravel a mystery. But time is running out, and the spirit is only growing stronger.
And if Cass fails, the force she’s unleashed could haunt the city forever.
I enjoyed City of Ghosts a lot and I am curious where Victoria is going to bring Tunnel of Bones. Probably in a great direction again, who knows.
Wayward Son (Simon Snow #2) by Rainbow Rowell (September 3)
The story is supposed to be over.
Simon Snow did everything he was supposed to do. He beat the villain. He won the war. He even fell in love. Now comes the good part, right? Now comes the happily ever after…
So why can’t Simon Snow get off the couch?
What he needs, according to his best friend, is a change of scenery. He just needs to see himself in a new light…
That’s how Simon and Penny and Baz end up in a vintage convertible, tearing across the American West.
They find trouble, of course. (Dragons, vampires, skunk-headed things with shotguns.) And they get lost. They get so lost, they start to wonder whether they ever knew where they were headed in the first place…
I read Carry On back in 2015 and liked it, but I am going to have to reread it now to read Wayward Son. I really want to, so please make me!
Unpregnant by Jenni Hendriks and Ted Caplan (September 10)
Seventeen-year-old Veronica Clarke never thought she would wish she’d failed a test until she finds herself holding a thick piece of plastic in her hands and staring at two solid pink lines. Even the most consistent use of condoms won’t prevent pregnancy when your boyfriend secretly pokes holes in them to keep you from going out-of-state for college.
Veronica needs an abortion, but the closest place she can legally get one is over nine hundred miles away—and Veronica doesn’t have a car. Too ashamed to ask her friends or family for help, Veronica turns to the one person she believes won’t judge her: Bailey Butler, Jefferson High’s own little black cloud of anger and snark—and Veronica’s ex-best friend. Once on the road, Veronica quickly remembers nothing with Bailey is ever simple and that means two days of stolen cars, shotguns, crazed ex-boyfriends, truck stop strippers with pro-life agendas, and a limo driver named Bob. But the pain and betrayal of their broken friendship can’t be outrun. When their fighting leads to a brutal moment of truth, Bailey abandons Veronica. Now Veronica must risk everything in order to repair the hurt she’s caused
I have been into funny pregnancy stories these last few months and Unpregnant seems to be one too. I hope it is going to be as funny as the synopsis makes it sound. Who knows?
This month only five books, but maybe I can actually read these before my tbr falls over. If you have any more books I should watch out for, let me know!
