Be still my book loving heart. September is going to be the death of me and my wallet. There are so many amazing books I want to read coming out this month, all of them of course going to have to take a back-burner to my course load as my senior year of college begins this same month! To handle the amazingly crazy number of books I want to read this month, I’ve broken it down into Young Adult,Fiction, and Nonfiction.
On the young adult front, there are so many great novels that I’m looking forward to. First and foremost, Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart. I loved her last book, We Were Liars, and am looking forward to this one. I haven’t read anything by Marie Lu before, but I’ve heard good things, so I’ll probably pick up Warcross as well. I’m VERY excited to see how Kendare Blake’s One Dark Throne wraps up, because I started out this year reading Three Dark Crowns. Finally, I’ll be sure to grab Stephanie Perkin’s new take on YA horror, There’s Someone Inside Your House. I loved all her other books so I can’t wait of this one! If I have the time, I might pick up Autoboyoraphy, an LGBTQ book about novel writing and forbidden love.
On the fiction front, I’ve also got fewer options to choose from, most of them recommended by the girls on the Book Riot podcast. Sisters by Lily Tuck sounds weird and creepy, so count me in. There’s a new Alison Weir book out at the end of the month, and I love historical fiction, so that’s a must-read. If I have time, I might pick up Sourdough by Robin Sloan, a magical-realism type book recommended by Book Riot!
On the nonfiction front, it’s going to be a busy month! The Property Brothers have a book out, and since I love all things HGTV, how could I not read it? Katy Tur, a reporter, has a book out about covering the 2016 election and dealing with personal attacks from Donald Trump, plus there’s a book out about Alexander Hamilton that isn’t praising him like he was the second coming of God, which is a pleasant surprise in the post-Hamilton pandemonium. I’m also looking forward to reading Dear Fahrenheit 451, which deals with books and literature from the point of view of a Gen-X booklover.
