Hey all, Dani here.
I can’t believe we’re nearing the end of August already, and it’s time to start looking ahead to September. So, when I opened up my Anticipated Releases spreadsheet, I had to go through the books I had listed for the month of September so I could verify that the release dates were still accurate…and I had a couple that were pushed back a month or two. That has happened a whole lot the past year and a half or so, and I expect we’ll continue to have these sorts of delays for the foreseeable future honestly.
Basically, the dates were accurate as of last week when I started drafting this post, and regardless of if any of these books are delayed or not, I’m still excited for them. But, I put this on here, because I feel like right now, with these sorts of posts, it is a good idea to check the release dates where you live. Oh, I guess I should also say that since I live in Ohio, I use the US release dates.
Anyway, let’s look at the books I’m excited for in the month of September. As with the last few of these posts I’ve done, I have split the books up by their release weeks.
First up, we have a bunch of fantasy from all over, adult, young adult, middle grade, and manga…well, I guess the manga would technically be more sci-fi not fantasy. I am all caught up with reading My Hero Academia, but I have three volumes I need to review, so I’ll probably start Manga Monday back up in September and October by catching up on MHA and Black Clover.
And I have a whole bunch of Rick Riordan Presents books to read, so I don’t know, I might try and do a binge read of them soon, perhaps as part of a readathon. We’ll see.
Sept 7: Pahua and the Soul Stealer by Lori M. Lee, My Hero Academia Vol 29 by Kohei Horikoshi, Among Thieves by M.J. Kuhn, The City Beautiful by Aden Polydoros, The Last Legacy by Adrienne Young
The second week of September brings a sequel to an interesting sci-fi tale that is basically for the people who watched the sequel trilogy of Star Wars and shipped Finn and Poe. I really enjoyed the first one, though I read it as an ARC so I might need a refresher first. Then there’s also the newest Brigid Kemmerer book, and I’ll be honest, I haven’t looked into this book really, so I only have the vaguest idea of what it’s about, but that doesn’t matter. I’ve read Kemmerer’s contemporary and her fantasy, and I’ve enjoyed them all, so I’m excited for this one anyway.
Sept 14: Oaths of Legacy by Emily Skrutskie, Defy the Night by Brigid Kemmerer
So, for the third week of September, there are three releases for series where I’m at least a book behind. Nevertheless, I’m excited about their releases, and I honestly am expecting and hoping for some series binge reads sometime soon. Then there are a couple of my most anticipated fantasy releases of the year. I mean, come on, look at the cover for Iron Widow. It’s stunning. And I have really enjoyed every T.J. Klune book I’ve read, so I have high hopes for this newest release.
Sept 21: Under the Whispering Door by T.J. Klune, Into the Dying Light by Katy Rose Pool, Iron Widow by Xiran Jay Zhao, A Song of Flight by Juliet Marillier, The Bronzed Beasts by Roshani Chokshi
The final week of September only has one anticipated release, but I’ve seen a lot of buzz and excitement and anticipation for it. Plus, again, a beautiful cover. Is it just me or have we had some absolutely amazing covers the last couple years? I know they say not to judge a book by its cover, but a nice cover certainly helps.
