Hey all, Dani here.
How are we almost at fall already? Time is just flying by, and seriously, fall may have the most releases I’m looking forward to. There are just so many interesting sounding books coming out in the next few months. Because of that, I’m not actually going to spend a lot of time coming up with a fun or rambly introduction. Let’s just start talking about the book releases of September, October, and November that I’m looking forward to. Trust me, there are a lot of them.
First off is September. In September I have the third installment of a series that started off okay for me, but the second book was a definite improvement, so I’m excited to see where this next one leads. Then there is the conclusion to the Warcross duology, and I’m hoping it is as worthwhile as the first one. There is also a Pride and Prejudice retelling that has completely intrigued me, as well as a fantasy debut about three illegitimate daughters of the king fighting to inherit the crown, and of course the continuation of a series I recently discovered that is absolutely amazing (and the new covers are way better than the original ones).
Two Dark Reigns by Kendare Blake (Sept 4), Rule by Ellen Goodlett (Sept 11), Wildcard by Marie Lu (Sept 18), Pride by Ibi Zoboi (Sept 18), and Charmcaster by Sebastien de Castell (new cover edition: Sept 18)
Next up is the craziness that is October releases. There is no way I will be able to buy all of these right when they are released, because there are just so many. Plus, some of these covers are just absolutely stunning. Cover design is just getting so good; there are so many covers I’d love to have art cards for so I could hang them up on my book art wall.
Anyway, October has a great number of fantasy reads, as well as a few manga and graphic novel releases that I really really can’t wait for. Oh, and then of course a new special B&N edition release of a book, and another Illustrated Harry Potter book. No, it isn’t Goblet of Fire, which I had been expecting for this year, but hopefully that one will come out next fall.
The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee (Oct 2), Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor (Oct 2), Damsel by Elana K Arnold (Oct 2), Kill the Queen by Jennifer Estep (Oct 2), My Hero Academia Vol 15 by Kohei Horikoshi (Oct 2), My Hero Academia Vigilantes Vol 2 by Hideyuki Furuhashi (Oct 2), What If It’s Us by Adam Silvera and Becky Albertalli (Oct 9), The Wicked + The Divine Vol 7 by Kieron Gillen (Oct 9), The Tales of Beetle the Bard, Illustrated Edition (Oct 9), A Sorrow Fierce and Falling by Jessica Cluess (Oct 16), An Assassin’s Guide to Love and Treason by Virginia Boecker (Oct 23), Red Rising (Signed B&N exclusive edition, Oct 23), Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J Maas (Oct 23), and Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa (Oct 30)
Finally there is November, which is rather light after the release heaviness of October. Honestly, I am not complaining about that at all. And honestly one of the releases is just the screenplay, so it will be super fast to read.
Archenemies by Marissa Meyer (Nov 6), Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindewald by J.K. Rowling (movie screenplay, Nov 16), The Mortal Word by Genevieve Cogman (Nov 27)
Okay then, well I guess that is about all from me for today. Let me know in the comments if any of these books are on your anticipated release list. Or, tell me some books that are on your list that didn’t make it on mine. I’d love to find more books to add to my never-ending TBR. All right, everyone, I’ll be back soon with more bookish content.
