Today I’m looking at September releases that I am excited for. Join me?
Today I am drinking a coffee from Square Mile roasters. It is the Kiandu AA with tasting notes of pink grapefruit and golden syrup. Yum. It smells almost as good at it tastes.
And the Ocean was Our Sky by Patrick Ness. How could anyone not be looking forward to a new book from this guy? This is a story about whales in a war against the world of men, a myth, a monster and a hunt that will change both worlds forever. I am really taken with stories set in the sea at the moment, so this one is really high on my radar for September.
Summer Bird Blue by Akemi Dawn Bowman. I will always be here for a new book from Akemi. Starfish broke me and mended me, and I still have a lot of feelings about that book. In this second book, we are going to meet Rumi, a girl who wants to spend her life writing music with her sister. When her sister dies, Rumi is sent away whilst her mother deals with her own grief, and she is left to grieve for her sister and deal with her mother abandoning her. Can Rumi find her way back? Grief, soul searching and mummy issues. How could this book be any more perfect?
Oi Duck-Billed Platypus by Kes Grey. S and I absolutely love the Oi books, so of course we’re excited that a new one is coming out. I am especially excited that it is coming out with a purple cover.
City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab. I am newly converted to the genius that is V.E Schwab. I heard her talk in Newcastle recently and she is just amazing. When I heard that she was releasing a Middle Grade book I could not resist looking it up, and it did not disappoint. It is set in one of my favourite places, Edinburgh, and features ghosts and ghost hunters. Yes. Please. Is is September now?
The Curses by Laure Eve. I have been waiting for this book since I read The Graces, which was like a bookish version of The Craft meets my teenage foray into all things witchy. The Grace family are trying to pick up the pieces after what happened at the end of the last book and everyone wants to get back to normal, except for Summer who is having issues. This sounds amazing and I cannot wait to get my hands on this long-awaited sequel.
And Then We Collided by Josh Baldwin and Rosie Threakall. Due out early in September, this collaborative novel tells the story of two siblings from completely different worlds trying to find each other. Rosie is just a wonderful human and I cannot wait to read her debut novel. I am so excited!
What books are you looking forward to in September? Any you think I should be looking out for? Let me know in the comments.
