September Book BUZZ!
I hope you all are settling back into your fall routines. Here the kids are back in school, we moms are breathing a sigh of relief, and our schedules bursting at the seams. I’m trying to read at least one book a week in between work, school and other activities – it’s hard, but I need my downtime. Here is the list of books coming out this month that I’m excited about reading – leave a comment and tell me what YOU can’t wait to read!
The finale to the series is finally here!!! Jacinda is a draki, descended from dragons but able to take human form. Cassian was her intended, but love has a funny way of surprising people (and dragons!) and she fell for Will, a human and also a dreaded Hunter. Oh Sophie, you left us with a cliffhanger … The finale has lots of twists and action, and an ending that seems to be open for sequels … ?!?!
Oh, this book sounds like so much fun, and I know Sarah Rees Brennan is a funny lady in real life, so this book made my list! Kami has talked to a boy in her head since she was born, but she’s shocked when it turns out he’s real, and he’s now going to her school! Plus the mysterious family who left town abruptly a generation ago has returned, and mystery and murder ensue. I’m ready to read this now!
This is the sequel to the popular The Girl of Fire and Thorns. I have both books sitting on my nightstand just waiting for me to start them. Stacy raved about this book, and since I am totally a fantasy geek, I am going to read BOTH of these this weekend. Really. Stacy says she’s a great female lead character who blossoms from naive to a fierce and determined young woman, and who has a realistic faith where she is devoted but has occasional doubts.
Libba unleashes her wit on New York in the roaring 20′s. Evie is a young lady with a weakness for speakeasies, shopping, movies … and she has a mysterious power. It doesn’t help that she lives with her uncle in a museum dedicated to the odd, supernatural and occult – nicknamed “The Museum of the Creepy-Crawlies”. Murder, mayhem and consumption of gin follows … not necessarily in that order.
AHHHH, love love love this book! Magical and spooky, with characters that are gritty and real, and a brilliantly written story that layers Welch mythology with ghosts and romance. It begins when Blue sees Gansey as a ghost in a graveyard, either because he’s her true love, or because she killed him. This story is so complex and rich you can’t stop thinking about it after you shut the cover. Of course, this is the first in a series … and I can’t wait for the next installment!
Scoffers out there are wondering if Rowling can appeal to audiences with this book that’s neither fantasy nor for young adults. Are you kidding me? This is the mother of Harry Freaking Potter. I’d read her shopping lists with glee. Wouldn’t you?
