I usually do my last month’s book haul way earlier in the month but trying to manage all things book blog this month has been a bit of a struggle, so I apologize! So here is September’s book haul, better late than never I suppose!
Shadow Run by AdriAnne Strickland & Michael Miller
This is a YA sci-fi that is promoted as being “Dune meets Firefly”, now I haven’t ever seen ‘Dune’ but I absolutely LOVE ‘Firefly’ so that’s pretty much all I needed to know. Space thieves, runaway princes, and special powers everyone is after. Yes please!
Apart in the Dark: Novellas by Ania Ahlborn
I’ve recently discovered Ahlborn’s books though I have yet to read any of them, I hear she’s a fantastic horror writer though and I’m always looking for new horror books! This was on Book Outlet so….I was basically obligated to buy it, that’s how that works, right? This book is made up of two novellas about a serial killer and haunted house respectively. At least that’s what I got out of the two different synopses!
Disappearance at Devil’s Rock by Paul Tremblay
I’ve heard great things about Tremblay’s books and this was on Book Outlet so once again I couldn’t help myself. This one is about a 14 year old boy who goes missing in the woods of a local park and who was last seen at Devil’s Rock, rumored to be cursed. This seems like it’ll be a mix of supernatural and thriller/psychological thriller, where you don’t know if what happened was paranormal or not which I love!
The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen
I really enjoy psychological thrillers especially when they’re narrated unreliably! This book really pushes to “assume nothing” in the synopsis and I love being thrown completely off when reading a thriller so this should be interesting!
Change Places With Me by Lois Metzger
This is a shorter book coming in at just over 200 pages, it’s about a girl named Rose who wakes up one morning and finds that her personality has changed and everything about who she was before doesn’t suit her any longer. And the person she was is still there inside of her somewhere…
I think the synopsis is very vague on purpose, hopefully it’s a great twist! It’s sort of sci-fi feeling and definitely sounds interesting.
Even The Darkest Stars by Heather Fawcett
I just love the sound of this book so much with a girl who dreams of becoming an explorer for the Emperor. The cover is gorgeous too!
I Stop Somewhere by T.E. Carter
I’m really excited for this book, however, it deals with some very heavy subject matter: sexual assault and abuse. I’ve seen stellar reviews for it and I feel it’ll be one of those hard to read books that are very worth it.
Sadie by Courtney Summers
Because everyone and their mother says this book is fantastic! Plus I love a good mystery….
Monstress, Vol. 3: Haven by Marjorie M. Liu
Volume 3 is finally in my hands! This series is all around fantastic, gorgeous art, great world building, and a fascinating plot.
We Sold Our Souls by Grady Hendrix
I’ve had my eye on a few Hendrix books now since I love horror especially quirky horror. I saw this in Barnes & Noble with its black sprayed pages and HAD to have it! It’s about a former metal band’s singer who may have sold his soul for fame and fortune.
Worlds Seen In Passing: 10 Years of Tor.com Short Fiction by Various Authors
This was a birthday present and I’m very excited for it since I love Tor! I’m sure there’s some fantastic short stories in here.
The Haunting of Ashburn House by Darcy Coates
Another author I’ve heard good things about and I looove horror especially about haunted houses. Plus it was on sale for Kindle for $0.99 so I pretty much had to buy it.
Before You Sleep by Adam Nevill
There were some good reviews for this, it’s made up of a few short horror stories and it’s FREE on Kindle. FREE! How can you go wrong?
The Toy Thief by D.W. Gillespie
I received this for review it’s another horror book from Flame Tree Press, they have so many awesome sounding horror books! It’s about a creature known as the “toy thief” and steals the MC’s brother away and she must go save him.
Empress of All Seasons by Emiko Jean
I’m so stoked to have received this one for review! It’s a diverse YA fantasy about a competition to find the next empress and the contestants must survive each of the palace’s seasonal rooms. It sounds so unique!
River Bodies Karen Katchur
I was sent this for review unsolicited. It’s a simple enough mystery/thriller about a murder case being reopened.
Enchantee by Gita Trelease
Super excited to have been approved for this on Netgalley! It’s set in Paris during the French Revolution and has magic and magicians!
