Hitting the Shelves in September

It happens every year. Right around the time school starts, when schedules get busy and homework starts ramping up, the next installments of your favorite series are released. There's nothing you can do. You MUST read them. Take a look at some of the sequels getting released this month-- as well as few stand alone titles if you're looking to start something new. 

As I Descended
by Robin Talley

Robin's Talley latest book is a twisted reimagining of Macbeth set in an elite Virginia high school with a troubling past. This ambitious book has Shakespearean levels of betrayal, ambition and manipulation, and tackles themes of race, history, and mistrust. 

Dark Horses
by Cecily Von Ziegesar

This book looks NUTS, you guys. Cecily Von Ziegesar, bestselling author of the Gossip Girl series, is back with a fast moving story of troubled young woman who enters an equine therapy program, and quickly bonds with a horse named Red. As she starts up flirations with a few romantic prospects around the stable, Red is driven to jealousy and possessiveness. The story switches back and forth between the girl and the horse's perspective (!!!), and sounds fun, fast and scandalous.

by Mercedes Lackey

Joy is now an Elite, has a huge pack of hounds backing her up, and is ready to take on whatever lies beyond the Barriers. Or so she thinks. This exciting follow up to Hunter lives up to the first, and will have you clamoring for the third.

Empire of Storms
by Sarah J Maas

The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those who don't. As the kingdoms of Erilea fracture around her, enemies must become allies if Aelin is to keep those she loves from falling to the dark forces poised to claim her world.

The Graces
by Laure Eve

After River moves to a small town, she becomes fixated on befriending a group of siblings that are rumored to be witches. This book seems perfect for a back-to-school, fall-is-coming read, and while it's been getting a ton of buzz since it was released in the UK, everyone has managed to keep the mysterious ending under wraps.

Tales of the Peculiar
by Ransom Riggs

The author of the spooktacular Miss Peregrine books (movie out this month!) is back with this, well, peculiar collection of folklore rooted in the world of his previous books. Dark, atmospheric and fairytale-like, these stories are great to curl up with as the weather gets colder. 

Three Dark Crowns
Kendare Blake

Fans of acclaimed author Kendare Blake's Anna Dressed in Blood will devour her latest novel, a dark and inventive fantasy about three sisters who must fight to the death to become queen.

A Torch Again the Night
by Sabaa Tahir

It's here! The much anticipated sequel to Ember in the Ashes! Laia and Elias are on a mission to save Laia's brother, and as you can imagine, things get COMPLICATED. Packed with brutal action and intrique, this looks like a wild ride.
