Hello everybody! Today, I’m going to be talking about the September releases I’m looking forward to reading, of which there are quite a few! Onto the post!
Dragon Mountain– I am SO EXCITED for this book! It’s about a group of children bonding with dragons whilst at summer camp in China, and I have such high hopes for it. I watched an amazing interview with the authors the other day that’s made me even more excited as well!
Tamarind and the Star of Ishta– Jasbinder Bilan’s first book was so good, and it made me cry loads, so I think I’ll probably enjoy this one too. It’s about a girl called Tamarind who isn’t very familiar with her Indian heritage due to her mum dying when she was very young, as she visits her ancestral home and learns more about that part of her family and herself.
The Midnight Howl– I quite enjoyed the first book in this trilogy, so I’m definitely hoping to get to the second installment soon! I have to admit my memory of the Midnight Hour is pretty fuzzy as I read a proof back in late 2018 so it’s been almost 2 years, but hopefully it’ll come back to me once I get going with this! It’s about a girl called Emily with a connection to the world of the Midnight Hour, which is basically Victorian London with magic.
My Life as a Cat– Carlie Sorosiak’s MG debut I, Cosmo was my favourite book of 2019 so I’m really excited to see what this one is like! It’s about an alien who is sent to earth to live as a cat, and I’m sure it’ll be gorgeous and heartwarming and funny, and if it doesn’t make me cry at some point I’ll be astounded. I wept solidly through Cosmo just because of the sheer loveliness of it.
Beginners’ Luck– I absolutely love Simon James Green and I absolutely love MG, so I suspect I will love his first MG book, which is about a boy named Riley who believes he’s cursed with bad luck. It also has the seal of approval from my darling Ross, whose opinion I trust massively, so I honestly can’t wait to get stuck into this soon!
The Otherwhere Emporium– I’m a massive fan of this trilogy, and I can’t wait to read this one. I didn’t actually know there was going to be another one after Elsewhere Emporium till a couple of months ago so it was a very pleasant surprise! I don’t think Daniel is going to be in this one which I’m sad about, but I’m very excited nonetheless and I’m sure it’ll still be incredible. Ross Mackenzie’s writing is just beyond amazing.
Into the Spotlight– I’ll be honest, I wasn’t the biggest fan of the only other Carrie Hope Fletcher I’ve read so I may well wait to read this till the paperback is out, but it’s a kind of Ballet Shoes retelling which is why I’m interested.
Tilly and the Map of Stories- I really loved the first Pages and Co book, so while the second didn’t blow me away quite as much I’m definitely still planning to pick up this one to see how things end for Tilly! The concept of bookwandering is just incredible, and I can’t wait to see which worlds and characters Tilly and Oscar visit in this one.
I Kissed Alice– this is a US release so it might take me a while to get round to buying a copy, but I think this female/female romance sounds SO amazing. It’s about two girls who are competing against each other by day, and unknowingly falling in love online at the same time.
The Thursday Murder Club– I’m generally pretty wary of celebrity authors, but I’m a massive fan of Pointless and this (which is by Richard Osman, a co-presenter of Pointless) sounds right up my street anyway, so I kind of have to. It’s about a group of senior citizens who enjoy solving cold cases together, as they get to investigate their very own murder that’s just happened.
Which September releases are you excited for? Do you have any thoughts on the ones I’ve mentioned? I’d love to hear in the comments!
