I like the idea of sharing my plans for September, so here are some books I'm hoping to read, books I'm looking forward to seeing in its physical form, and goals for the month!
I don't want to call this a September TBR because I KNOW for a fact that once I do, I'm going to read everything that is not on this list. So instead of that, I'll just give you a general idea of what I'm planning to read. That way I won't feel as guilty if I end up reading something else :p ("TBR" just sounds too final to me and I'm terrible at commitment.)
Eric from Quirk Books was asking for bloggers to review Horrorstor by Grady Hendrix, so I immediately tweeted back and this came in the mail! I love Ikea, so this being similar to their catalogs sent a signal to my brain that I must read this. I'm not a fan of horror/scary books, but I decided to give this a chance because IKEA.
Booksplosion, a book club on YouTube, is planning to read Rumble by Ellen Hopkins so I decided to jump in. I haven't read anything by Ellen yet, but I read the description and thought it would be quite interesting. I've only tuned in to one liveshow (for We Were Liars) but I like hearing what other people think of something I've read.
I stopped by my school library this past week and immediately picked up Take a Bow by Elizabeth Eulberg because 1) I recognized her name and 2) I liked the cover. I have no idea what it's about (although it looks like the main character may be a singer!) but sometimes you just need a girly book.
I was lucky enough to win a copy of Rain Reign by Ann M. Martin (thank you, Fierce Reads!) so I'll be reading and reviewing this in the near future. And YES, this is the same Ann M. Martin who wrote the Baby-Sitter's Club series!
- September 9th: Falling into Place by Amy Zhang
- September 16th: The Vault of Dreamers by Caragh M. O'Brien
- September 23rd: Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld
- September 30th: Winterspell by Claire Legrand (INSPIRED BY THE NUTCRACKER!)
I think my only goal for September is to finish Salt & Storm by Kendall Kulper. It's not a terrible book, but I've been reading the thing for ages and I just need to move on!
What are you hoping to read this month? Which new releases are you most excited for? What are your plans for September?
