I think I mentioned last month that there were a lot of good books coming out in September. But I was surprised when I started to write them all down just how many I had found. Besides the six that I have already read and reviewed, I have 12 more books to share that I am super excited about. I will start off with the new ones and then recap the ones I have read at the end. Ready? Let’s begin!
All of the titles are linked to their Goodreads page so you can find out more if you want.
Just Haven’t Met You Yet is a recent find. I love the premise and I have been to Catalina Island where this takes place. It sounds like a really fun read.
Dark and Shallow Lies sounds really spooky and dark. A missing girl and a town full of psychics? Also a mysterious stranger and the setting of the bayou just sounds like a great combination.
No Gods, No Monsters caught my eye with the title. Then I read the summary and I was very intrigued. Sounds like it might be something very different.
Empire of the Vampires has been one of my most anticipated reads of the year. I did not realize it was going to be soooo long though! I hope it reads fast as it sounds really good.
The Splendor caught my eye first because of the cover, but then the author’s name cinched the deal for me. I loved this author’s other books and am looking forward to reading this one.
Never Saw Me Coming also caught my attention fairly recently. I like the twist that the main character is already known to be a psychopath and is even in a clinical study with others like her. Sounds intriguing doesn’t it?
Dare to Know came to my attention through a review I saw of it recently. It sounds really twisty and quirky. I am always up for stories about characters who know when they are going to die.
Steelstriker is another book that I have been looking forward to since I read the first book in the series, Skyhunter, last year. I can’t quite decide if I want or need to reread the first book before tackling this one. Maybe I will try out the audiobook.
How great is that cover for Horseman? If that doesn’t make you pick it up and check it out I’m not sure what will. I have always found the Headless Horseman story spooky and interesting. This sounds like a good one to read close to Halloween.
The Ex Hex sounds really cute and funny, plus I really enjoy that cover. Most of my books lately have been pretty heavy, so a cute fantasy romance sounds like a nice way to end the month.
We Are All Liars is another twisty, mystery, thriller with a group of friends stranded at a cabin in the woods. What could go wrong with that?
Play of Shadows is maybe coming out this month!? There have been a lot of conflicting dates so I’m not positive of this one. But I certainly hope so and the fact that my library says it has it on order makes me very hopeful… I will believe it when I actually have it in my hands though.
And now for the books that I have already read and reviewed!
Certain Dark Things was a very interesting take on Vampires. I loved how there were different species of them and how the Mexican ones were tied to the Aztecs.
Your Guide to Not Getting Murdered in a Quaint English Village was a fun and quick little read. I loved the illustrations! It is a must read if you are heading into the English Countryside.
All These Bodies was such a good read. A very creepy and twisty read that will leave you wondering in the end as to what is real. A great story about a string of murders that happen across the midwest in the late 1950’s.
As Good as Dead is the final book in the Good Girl’s Guide to Murder trilogy. This story takes a pretty dark turn and goes places I wasn’t expecting. But I really liked how Pip’s character changed over the course of the books.
The Last Graduate was just as good as the first book, but oh that ending that will leave you breathless and anticipating the third book.
Once Upon a Broken Heart was wonderful. I don’t have the review written for it yet, as I just finished it, but I should have it up next week. I was a little disappointed that the story is not really about Jacks, but in the end I was ok with that.
September is shaping up to be an exciting month. I hope I can still find some time to read as I will be busy with the start of school. But I am really looking forward to reading some of these.
