New Releases – September 2017

Hey ! It’s the end of the month, which means it’s time to talk about the book releases for next month. September is always a big month for new books, there are many new releases, and so I had to limit myself to pick just a few or we’d be here for hours!

As always, my comments are open, so let me know which releases are your favorite. Ok, let’s get started.


Tower of Dawn - Book ReleasesTitle: Tower of Dawn (Throne of Glass #6)

Author: Sarah J. Maas

Publisher: Bloomsbury

Release date: 05/09/2017

Synopsis: Chaol Westfall has always defined himself by his unwavering loyalty, his strength, and his position as the Captain of the Guard. But all of that has changed since the glass castle shattered, since his men were slaughtered, since the King of Adarlan spared him from a killing blow, but left his body broken.
His only shot at recovery lies with the legendary healers of the Torre Cesme in Antica—the stronghold of the southern continent’s mighty empire. And with war looming over Dorian and Aelin back home, their survival might lie with Chaol and Nesryn convincing its rulers to ally with them.
But what they discover in Antica will change them both—and be more vital to saving Erilea than they could have imagined.

Thoughts: Throne of Glass is one of my favorite series, by one of my favorite authors. Needless to say, I am beyond excited about this one. Moreover, I am really curious to see how this book will be different compared to the rest of the series since it focuses only on Chaol. And as usual, I will read it in hours and then wait for months until I can finally read the conclusion next year.


book releasesTitle: They Both Die at the End

Author: Adam Silvera

Publisher: Harper Teen

Release date: 05/09/2017

Synopsis: On September 5, a little after midnight, Death-Cast calls Mateo Torrez and Rufus Emeterio to give them some bad news: They’re going to die today. Mateo and Rufus are total strangers, but, for different reasons, they’re both looking to make a new friend on their End Day. The good news: There’s an app for that. It’s called the Last Friend, and through it, Rufus and Mateo are about to meet up for one last great adventure and to live a lifetime in a single day.

Thoughts: I have yet to read an Adam Silvera novel… I know, what have I been doing !? But you know how it goes, so many books, so little time. But this book I have to read. The cover and the synopsis have me completely hooked.


Title: The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding

Author: Alexandra Bracken

Publisher: Disney Hyperion 

Release date: 05/09/2017

Synopsis: Prosper is the only unexceptional Redding in his old and storied family history — that is, until he discovers the demon living inside him. Turns out Prosper’s great-great-great-great-great-something grandfather made — and then broke — a contract with a malefactor, a demon who exchanges fortune for eternal servitude. And, weirdly enough, four-thousand-year-old Alastor isn’t exactly the forgiving type.
The fiend has reawakened with one purpose — to destroy the family whose success he ensured and who then betrayed him. With only days to break the curse and banish Alastor back to the demon realm, Prosper is playing unwilling host to the fiend, who delights in tormenting him with nasty insults and constant attempts trick him into a contract. Yeah, Prosper will take his future without a side of eternal servitude, thanks.
Little does Prosper know, the malefactor’s control over his body grows stronger with each passing night, and there’s a lot Alastor isn’t telling his dim-witted (but admittedly strong-willed) human host.

Thoughts: I love middle grade and I am always curious to discover new ones. And even though I wasn’t completely convinced by The Darkest Minds, I am sure Alexandra Bracken as the potential to write a great middle-grade novel. 


If there's no tomorrow - book releasesTitle: If There’s No Tomorrow

Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout

Publisher: Harlequin Teen

Release date: 05/09/2017

Synopsis: Lena Wise is always looking forward to tomorrow, especially at the start of her senior year. She’s ready to pack in as much friend time as possible, to finish college applications and to maybe let her childhood best friend Sebastian know how she really feels about him. For Lena, the upcoming year is going to be epic—one of opportunities and chances.
Until one choice, one moment, destroys everything.
Now Lena isn’t looking forward to tomorrow. Not when friend time may never be the same. Not when college applications feel all but impossible. Not when Sebastian might never forgive her for what happened. For what she let happen.
With the guilt growing each day, Lena knows that her only hope is to move on. But how can she move on when her and her friends’ entire existences have been redefined? How can she move on when tomorrow isn’t even guaranteed?

Thoughts: Jennifer L. Armentrout. A contemporary. A dash of mystery. I mean, what more could a girl want? Also, the cover is stunning, which doesn’t hurt.


Book releasesTitle: Warcross

Author: Marie Lu

Publisher: G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers

Release date: 12/09/2017

Synopsis: For the millions who log in every day, Warcross isn’t just a game—it’s a way of life. The obsession started ten years ago and its fan base now spans the globe, some eager to escape from reality and others hoping to make a profit. Struggling to make ends meet, teenage hacker Emika Chen works as a bounty hunter, tracking down players who bet on the game illegally. But the bounty hunting world is a competitive one, and survival has not been easy. Needing to make some quick cash, Emika takes a risk and hacks into the opening game of the international Warcross Championships—only to accidentally glitch herself into the action and become an overnight sensation.
Convinced she’s going to be arrested, Emika is shocked when instead she gets a call from the game’s creator, the elusive young billionaire Hideo Tanaka, with an irresistible offer. He needs a spy on the inside of this year’s tournament in order to uncover a security problem . . . and he wants Emika for the job. With no time to lose, Emika’s whisked off to Tokyo and thrust into a world of fame and fortune that she’s only dreamed of. But soon her investigation uncovers a sinister plot, with major consequences for the entire Warcross empire.

Thoughts: Marie Lu wrote Legend, a trilogy I adore. And although I have yet to read her second series, I really want to discover this third one. Mostly I admire her capacity to go from a dystopy, to a fantasy novel, to a more sci-fy one.


book releasesTitle: There’s Someone Inside Your House

Author: Stephanie Perkins

Publisher: Dutton Books for Young Readers

Release date: 26/09/2017

Synopsis: One-by-one, the students of Osborne High are dying in a series of gruesome murders, each with increasing and grotesque flair. As the terror grows closer and the hunt intensifies for the killer, the dark secrets among them must finally be confronted.

Thoughts: It’s not every day you see an author, mostly known for her cute contemporary romance novels write a book that is more of a horror movie than a romantic comedy. So obviously I am intrigued!


Well, that’s it for the September book releases. Can you feel the hole in your wallet? Cause I sure can! I’ll be back soon to tell you about the books I’ve read this month as well as the reading news of August.

Enjoy your reads,

Gaëlle
