Okay, I know that we’ve already had two full weeks of September already, but in my defense I took the first week off from posting blogs so I could work on writing and scheduling and reading and planning some posts for October! I really want to get in the mood for fall, so a lot of the books I plan on reading in September will hopefully help with that!
The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch
I’ve been reading this one already and at the time I’m writing this I’m right around 200 pages into this one now and I’m really loving it so far! It’s everything that I wanted out of all the other heist stories that I’ve ever read before. The banter between everyone is just A++. I have no idea where this story is heading and every time I think the gang is in trouble, the way they weasel themselves out is a ton of fun to read about!
Teeth in the Mist by Dawn Kurtagich
A while ago I asked for some recommendations for creepy/eerie fall reads, and this was one of the books that was recommended to me! I’ve seen this book before because it’s a fairly new release, so when I started to read the synopsis I was immediately intrigued enough to pick it up and add it to my TBR! I purposely skimmed the synopsis because I didn’t want to be spoiled for anything that happens, but what I do know is it’s three different timelines in the same house and the events that happen in all three timelines somehow come together.
Malice by John Gwynne
This is one that I talked about in my 10 Books I HAD To Buy…But Are Still Sitting On My Bookshelf post, and so many people commented telling me that they either loved it or also wanted to read it, so I figured that I should pick it up sooner rather than later. I only got a few pages in (44 to be exact) before my copy of The Lies of Locke Lamora came in and I put this one down temporarily to read that one. What I read intrigued me though and I want to ocntinue reading this book in September!
Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin
This was one of the books I was most excited for that was released in August, and I’m so excited to finally have it in my hands to read! There’s just something about books about two people who are thrown together into a marriage where one needs to hide their true identity. With a witch forced to marry a witch hunter when their two people are at war, what better book to read in September to get me into a fall mood?
There Will Come A Darkness by Katy Rose Pool
Another August release, this is one that I actually wasn’t going to pick up right away, but then Madison Mary from Princess of Paperbacks was raving about this book. After she was talking about The Merciful Crow and how much she loved it, I figured that if she loved this book that much, I would too! In this book there are five people who may be part of a final prophecy and one of them will end up either saving or destroying the world. I’m a sucker for prophecies and things like that, so this sounds like it’ll be right up my alley!
Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
This will be my audiobook for September. I listened to Cinder before and I really enjoyed reading it that way! I wanted to continue with the series and figured the audiobooks would be a good way to go with the rest of the series. I know that this book follows Scarlet instead of Cinder, but I don’t know if the characters come together or if it’s just a series of companion novels. I guess I’ll find out soon enough!
Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray
I don’t know if I’m actually going to be able to get to this one this month because it’s fairly long and I have a few other larger books on my TBR, but I have a good friend who is already on the third book and I really need to catch up so we can talk about it! The Diviners was such a great read and was actually a lot more creepy than I was anticipating, so what better time to read book two than in the fall??
