September 2019 Book Releases I’m Excited About!

Hello everyone! I’m here today with the September 2019 edition of Books Releasing This Month That I’m Excited About but Probably Won’t Read Anytime Soon.

I had to skip August because I was basically a zombie walking around, so much happening around me that I wasn’t in my head at all. Though August was a good reading month for me – amazing, even – it was terrible work-wise and even mentally. I’m still reeling from the force of it all.

But I’m back now, and here’s hoping that I can get back to posting. Hopefully regularly this time! 🙂

As way of a return (very bland return, not spectacular at all), here are 11 books that are releasing this September that have really piqued my interest!

#1 – Nothing Ventured (William Warwick #1) by Jeffrey Archer

9781529014914Jeffrey Archer is one of my favorite authors of all time and to start this list without his newest release would be blasphemy. And to think that this book is about a fictional character invented by another fictional character from the Clifton Chronicles by Jeffrey Archer makes it all the more interesting and intriguing. Most of all, it excites me to no end. Now, only if I could get my hands on this book ASAP… *stares wistfully into the distance*

#2 – Great Goddesses by Nikita Gill

2There’s no two ways about it! I LOVE NIKITA GILL! I read Fierce Fairytales late in July and I was blown away by her writing! I mean, how can one be soft and fierce and strong and vulnerable all at once? It made me cry and it made me feel things that I thought I had pushed way down and away, and I was really not prepared for it! Oh, what do I say! I’m waiting for this beauty to release. And I know that this is going to be another knockout!

Release Date: 24 September, 2019

#3 – The Testaments (Handmaid’s Tale #2) by Margaret Atwood

3To be honest, I haven’t read The Handmaid’s Tale yet. I’m hoping to read it this month, but I’m not sure if I will be able to. Yet, since I have The Handmaid’s Tale, it is only appropriate that I get excited about its sequel’s release? After all, that’s how us bookworms work, don’t we?

Publisher: Chatto & Windus

Release Date: 10 September, 2019

#4 – Dear Haiti, Love Alaine by Maika Moulite and Maritza Moulite

4I’ve never read a book with a Haitian-American as a protagonist and that’s about to change! This book looks like an amazing read, talking about the protagonist’s experience with life and how she learns through an immersion project in her school. It’s not just school that she’s dealing with; balancing her personal and school lives seems to be an unimaginable feat. Aaaaand that’s my pitch, hope you liked it, please get me book. 😀

#5 – There Will Come a Darkness by Katy Rose Pool

5I love books with magic in them and this one promises to be such a wild roller-coaster of a read! As you know, I’m usually attracted to books with beautiful covers and though this one has an amazing cover, it’s also the blurb that makes it such an interesting book to covet! But knowing our Indian book market, this is going to be an import for a long while and because of that, will be expensive AF. Sigh.

Publisher: Henry Holt and Co.

#6 – Frankly in Love by David Yoon

6This story is about Frank Li (ingenious!) who lives in Southern California with his Korean parents. They have a rule – Frank must only date Korean girls. Maybe Lara Jean Covey would have been a match, but that would probably not have happened because Frank falls in love with a girl called Brit. Now he and his friend Joy Song need to find a way to make this work – he with his white girlfriend, she with her Chinese-American boyfriend. And I need to find out what happens in this book! Someone gift me this book! Please!

Publisher: Penguin

Release Date: 12 September, 2019

#7 – The Survival List by Courtney Sheinmel

7The reason why I am drawn to this book is unclear even to me. I found the blurb vaguely interesting, in that the protagonist’s sister dies, leaving her a puzzle that is a list of random names and places. And now the protagonist must connect the dots with the help of a boy named Adam. It sounds right out of a John Green book, for some strange reason. And though I know I won’t be able to read this one for a long time, I’m okay with waiting.

Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books

Release Date: 17 September, 2019

#8 – Slay by Brittney Morris

8A Young Adult novel about a black gamer girl and how the world finds a way to attack the black community by terming it anti-white? Yes, I’d love to read it. Because it’s ironic that in this story, white people have a problem when something seemingly inconsequential occurs and they term it racist and discriminatory, and end up killing a black teen in the process. I have goosebumps writing this right now.

Publisher: Simon Pulse

Release Date: 24 September, 2019

#9 – Sontag: Her Life and Work by Benjamin Moser

9I am not familiar with Susan Sontag’s work but I know that she is still respected across the world. So when I saw that the biography was coming out, I jumped. Because most of all, I want to learn more about a woman who promises to open my mind even further. A writer, a philosopher, an activist, who promises to teach me so much about life, through another’s words from the afterlife. And for that, I’m utterly excited!

Publisher: Ecco

Release Date: 17 September, 2019

#10 – The Anarchy by William Dalrymple

10I have owned William Dalrymple’s The Last Mughal for a while now, and true to my nature, I haven’t yet picked it up despite hearing only good things about it. But this one, which is about the Easy India Company, is one that I could hardly pass up. Plus, I’ve become obsessed with the idea of reading and learning more history these past few days. It’s a different matter altogether that I haven’t been able to read on this subject much. 😛

Publisher: Bloomsbury

Release Date: 10 September, 2019

#11 – Wayward Son (Simon Snow #2) by Rainbow Rowell

11Another sequel that I haven’t read the first books of! Frankly, at this point, I’m way past exasperation and am just going with the flow. Mostly because for this one, I’ll have to read Fangirl and Carry On because I’m thorough like that, if anything. But then again, it’s also about peer pressure, because everyone’s talking about Simon and Baz and sometimes, I don’t like to be left out. 😛

Publisher: Macmillan Children’s Books

Release Date: 24 September, 2019

  1. I’m very excited about “The Testaments”! Please do read “The Handmaid’s Tale”, it’s phenomenal and so relevant to what’s happening these days. Another book that I’m eagerly waiting for in September is “How To” by Randall Munroe.

    1. I’ll be reading ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ next. 🙂 I’ve heard of the concept of THT and I so agree with you!
      I just looked up ‘How To’ and it sounds so so intriguing! Hope you have a great time reading. 🙂
