Hello Friends! It is almost the end of the summer and you know what that means…
Fall book releases galore! I obviously love reading any time of the year (I wouldn’t have this blog if I didn’t…), but there is something very special about autumn that makes me want to get cozy, light up a candle, grab a cup of coffee, and pick up a good book. I say this, even though I live in the Sunshine State and its fall for probably one week in the season and disturbingly hot the rest of the time (also hurricanes).
With that, I’ve included the top ten book releases I am most excited for.
The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker I have a confession, I’ve been trying (and failing) to read The Odyessy by Homer, the Robert Fagles translation since the beginning of the year. It’s been an odyssey in itself trying to finish it. But I’ve come across a few re-tellings of ancient Greek stories that I’ve been wanting to read including this one! (I read Circe earlier this year and it was phenomenal).
Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating Christina Lauren strikes again! I’ve been loving everything they have been writing lately. I gobble it up so quickly. (Side note: I have a special project involving this book coming up soon. Stay tuned!)
The Glass Ocean by Beatriz Williams, Karen White, and Lauren Willig Historical fiction is a true love of mine, and I’ve adored the two books by Beatriz Williams that I read this year. I’m looking forward to more brave female heroines.
Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas OH MY GOODNESS. NEED I SAY MORE? The final book of the series is finally being released and I don’t think my heart can handle it. Don’t mind me… just getting ready for the biggest book hangover of MY LIFE.
Pride by Ibi Zaboi I read Ibi’s first book, American Street in one sitting. ONE SITTING. Also, I’m a sucker for re-tellings and this is a re-telling of Pride and Prejudice. Yes, yes, and more yes!
Two Dark Reigns by Kendare Blake The last book left me with my mouth hanging open. I need to know what happens next. Thankfully I already have the book so I do not have to wonder any longer.
The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kristin White I love Kristin’s other series The Conqueror’s Trilogy, and as I mentioned above, I love re-tellings. I also like the book, Frankenstein. Let’s see how those three things will add up.
The Proposal by Jasmine Guillory This is a spin-off from her first book The Wedding Date which was ADORABLE AND AMAZING AND ALL THE CUTE ADJECTIVES YOU CAN THINK OF.
The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton This sounds so darn interesting and it sounds like it has everything I like: mystery, darkness, romance, history. Done. Give it to me right meow.
The Kennedy Debutante by Karry Maher I’ll admit, I thought it had something to do with the Kennedy’s (the presidential ones) but after I read the synopsis, I still want to read it! It’s a historical fiction so I’m sold.
Let me know what you all are looking forward to reading! Any books that I missed this summer that I should add to my list?
