Today we’re talking about what books I’m most excited for this fall! I’m a very happy person because SOOOO many good books are all coming out weeks within each other and I know that my reading slump will disappear quickly because I’m obviously going to read them all at once. These are in no particular order other than the first one I will mention.
1.) Kingdom of Ash by: Sarah J. Maas
So this is the final book in the Throne of Glass series. When I tell you guys how excited I am for this book I TRULY MEAN IT. I swear I have been counting down the days until I can physically have this book in my hand, and then I can read all 1,000 pages over night and then re-read it and cry a bunch. I truly am so excited about this book I may pass out!!! It’s the conclusion to this series, on Sarah’s Instagram she said it’s 1,000 pages and I know that not every character can live, it won’t be realistic, so someone will die and ya girl is not ready and I need this book now. I won’t leave a synopsis for this one in case others haven;t read the books yet because it does have spoilers in it. BUT I AM SO E X C I T E D.
Release date: October 23rd
2.) Kiss Me in Paris By: Katharine Rider
This book is essentially about our main character Serena and she’s visiting Paris and has her whole trip planned out down to what pictures she’s going to take. She runs into a french student named Jean-Luc and he’s just trying to pass his photography class. Then romance ensues as they argue a ton, do cute dates, and everything in between.
Does this sound like the most groundbreaking YA novel ever? No. But you know what I do love? A good contemporary stand alone romance, especially in the fall time.
Release date: September 4th, 2018
3.) Nightingale By: Amy Lukavics
So I would try and describe the synopsis to you guys, but it’s so odd and vague and there’s no way that I can do it justice so I’m just going to leave the Goodreads synopsis here:
At seventeen, June Hardie is everything a young woman in 1951 shouldn’t be—independent, rebellious, a dreamer. June longs to travel, to attend college and to write the dark science fiction stories that consume her waking hours. But her parents only care about making June a better young woman. Her mother grooms her to be a perfect little homemaker while her father pushes her to marry his business partner’s domineering son. When June resists, her whole world is shattered—suburbia isn’t the only prison for different women…
June’s parents commit her to Burrow Place Asylum, aka the Institution. With its sickening conditions, terrifying staff and brutal “medical treatments,” the Institution preys on June’s darkest secrets and deepest fears. And she’s not alone. The Institution terrorizes June’s fragile roommate, Eleanor, and the other women locked away within its crumbling walls. Those who dare speak up disappear…or worse. Trapped between a gruesome reality and increasingly sinister hallucinations, June isn’t sure where her nightmares end and real life begins. But she does know one thing: in order to survive, she must destroy the Institution before it finally claims them all.
This one wasn’t even on my most exciting list until recently when I read the synopsis and it has me SO intrigued. It leaves me with a lot of questions that I need and want to find out so I have to pick it up
Release date: October 1st, 2018
4.) Muse of Nightmares by: Laini Taylor
This is the second book to her first one Strange the Dreamer. That was the first book I ever read by her and it had A LOT of mixed reviews. 50 percent was obsessed with it and 50 percent hated it, it was mostly the writing style is very complex to get into but I LOVED that book and it ended on the most ridiculous cliff hanger and you guys have no idea how excited I am to get this book. Here is the Goodreads synopsis:
In the wake of tragedy, neither Lazlo nor Sarai are who they were before. One a god, the other a ghost, they struggle to grasp the new boundaries of their selves as dark-minded Minya holds them hostage, intent on vengeance against Weep.
Lazlo faces an unthinkable choice—save the woman he loves, or everyone else?—while Sarai feels more helpless than ever. But is she? Sometimes, only the direst need can teach us our own depths, and Sarai, the muse of nightmares, has not yet discovered what she’s capable of.
As humans and godspawn reel in the aftermath of the citadel’s near fall, a new foe shatters their fragile hopes, and the mysteries of the Mesarthim are resurrected: Where did the gods come from, and why? What was done with thousands of children born in the citadel nursery? And most important of all, as forgotten doors are opened and new worlds revealed: Must heroes always slay monsters, or is it possible to save them instead?
Release date: October 2nd
5.) The Darkest Star by: Jennifer L. Armentrout
I’m just really excited for this one because I don’t really know if it’s a spinoff series, or a novella, or has nothing to do with her previous series, but I did love her Lux series a lot and knowing she’s coming out with another book in that world makes my heart SO happy!! I also for some reason really love this cover!
Here is the Goodreads synopsis:
When seventeen-year-old Evie Dasher is caught up in a raid at a notorious club known as one of the few places where humans and the surviving Luxen can mingle freely, she meets Luc, an unnaturally beautiful guy she initially assumes is a Luxen…but he is in fact something much more powerful. Her growing attraction for Luc will lead her deeper and deeper into a world she’d only heard about, a world where everything she thought she knew will be turned on its head…
Release date: October 30th
So as you can see these all basically come out in October which means for that whole month I’ll just be reading a whole lot. It’s also the season for fantasies if you couldn’t tell. There are a lot more books that I’m super excited about so let me know if you want to see a part 2!
