Hello hello and welcome or welcome back to my little bookish corner of the internet. Somehow it’s time to talk about the books I’m planning on reading this September already! I need to bring in my August TBR here as I didn’t manage to read all the books I had planned on it and I am planning on passing them over to the next month this time around.
I managed to cross the 100 book mark in August which I’m thrilled about and read some absolutely brilliant books. Most of the books I’ve read this year have actually been brilliant, and I’ve got a blog post planned breaking down that first 100 books of the year coming up soon.
So, autumn. Let’s see how we’re starting off. The last few months I’ve read between twelve and sixteen books, so I’ve tried to give myself around half of that as planned reads to keep some relative freedom with the rest.
Secrets of the Stars
This is the first one I’m rolling over to September. I made the sacrifice of allowing my son to read it first, and he decided a few pages in that he wanted to reread the first book, then got distracted with god knows what for several days, and long story short – he’s just finished the book. I’m never letting him read first again. Read my review of book one, Ship of Shadows, here.
She Who Became the Sun
I’m actually not sure why I didn’t get around to reading this one! I just didn’t manage it. It is one I’m really excited about, and hopefully it will keep me distracted with all the stress that is rolling around in my life right now. This is taking priority for sure.
Triflers Need Not Apply
“Early in life Bella Sorensen discovers the world is made only for men. They own everything: jobs, property, wives. But Bella understands what few others do: where women are concerned, men are weak.
A woman unhampered by scruples can take from them what she wants. And so Bella sets out to prove to the world that a woman can be just as ruthless, black-hearted and single-minded as any man.
Starting with her long suffering husband, Mads, Bella embarks on a killing spree the like of which has never been seen before nor since.
And through it all her kind, older sister Nellie can only watch in horror as Bella’s schemes to enrich herself and cut down the male population come to a glorious, dreadful fruition . . .“
Lirael (Abhorsen #2)
I read Sabriel, the first book in the Abhorsen series, in August, and I’m planning on making a proper start on making my way through the series as the months progress. I really enjoyed Sabriel, and I’m keen to see what comes next with the cast of characters, and the new ones that book two is introducing. It’s one of the best written magical worlds I’ve encountered, and that’s based on one book, so I am excited for book two.
The Hawthorne Legancy (The Inheritance Games #2)
I’ve got an ARC of this book and I’ve saved it for September time as it feels like the kind of cosy mystery to read as the leaves start falling off the trees outside. The Hawthorne Legancy is the sequel to the fantastic book I reviewed last year, The Inheritance Games, which you can find my review of here. While I’ve been waiting for it, I’ve also read and reviewed one of the author’s other books Little White Lies, which was just as much fun.
The Woods Are Always Watching
I preordered this one and I’m keen to dig into it. Here’s the synopsis:
Best friends Neena and Josie spent high school as outsiders, but at least they had each other. Now, with college and a two-thousand-mile separation looming on the horizon, they have one last chance to be together—a three-day hike deep into the woods of the Pisgah National Forest.
Simmering tensions lead to a detour off the trail and straight into a waking nightmare … and then into something far worse. Something that will test them in horrifying ways.
Stephanie Perkins, the bestselling author of There’s Someone Inside Your House, returns with a heart-stopping, gut-wrenching novel about friendship, survival, and navigating unmarked paths even as evil watches from the shadows.
This historical fiction, woman driven novel is one I meant to read as an ARC and dropped the ball slightly when my vision was so bad. I now have it as an audiobook, and I’m super keen to get around to listening to it. I love history, and I love strong female leads, so combining the two is absolutely something I’m looking forward to. I have a feeling this will be one I binge read over a couple of days!
So there you have it. September, I’m so ready for you! Bring. It. On. I love autumn, and I love these books, so I can only see good things in my reading future.
Come back tomorrow (and the day after that, and the day after that, and the…) for new posts all things bookish. Take care!
