New Releases TBR

September Book Releases I’m Looking Forward To!

Hello friends! I decided to start a new series about new book releases that I am interested in reading. I have a really long list of books that I want to read, but I always check out the new releases to see if anything new is releasing that I would like to add to me list. One of the things that is key to catching my attention is the book cover. If the book cover looks interesting (along with the title), I am more than likely going to read more into seeing what that book is about. If the description keeps my attention, then I add it to my list.

So lets get started!

Friends Like These by Kimberly McCreight

Release Date: 7 September 2021

Genres: Thriller, Mystery, Fiction, Adult, Suspense

Current Rating on Goodreads: 3.84 Stars

So I’ve been interested in reading more thriller, crime based novels lately. I have quite a few on my TBR list that I haven’t gotten to yet, but I wanted to expand my genres outside of the typical romance books that I have been reading lately. Anywho, this book is about a group of college friends who come together due to an intervention 10 years after they graduated. Based on the description, it looks like this group of friends have been hiding secrets all these years and now things are starting to unfold. Apparently, something happened to an old friend of theirs and they are trying to avoid that scenario from happening again. After reading the description, I wanted to know more about what was going on and what actually happened to their friend. Although the rating is less that 4 stars right now, I still want to give it a chance. Doesn’t seem like it will be a bad novel. So eventually, I will be reading this.

The Missing Hours: A Novel by Julia Dahl

Release Date: 14 September 2021

Genres: Fiction, Mystery, Thriller, Suspense, Young Adult

Current Rating on Goodreads: 3.83 Stars

This book is about a girl names Claudia who comes from a very wealthy and famous family. While on the outside looking in, it looks like she has it all, in reality, she has a lot of drama going on in her life. Between he parents separating, being humiliated on a documentary and her sister having a baby by someone she barely knows, there is a lot going on in Claudia’s life. Claudia starts her Freshman year looking towards finding new positive things for her life, until she had a bad night and ends up cutting off her entire family. What really caught my attention was when it said after spring break when everyone returned back to school, she didn’t. She went missing and everyone is trying figure out the details to what really happened that night during spring break and to find out where Claudia really is. This is another thriller that I am excited for and I’m hoping this will be a good one!

When We Make It by Elisabet Velasquez

Release Date: 21 September 2021

Genres: Young Adult, Fiction, Mental Health, Coming of Age

Current Rating on Goodreads: 4.65 Stars

Ok, so this seems to be more for teenagers, but it really caught my attention. This book definitely hits some sensitive/triggering topics. Such as mental illness, sexual assault, food insecurity and gentrification. So if any of those topics are things that are triggering for you, I definitely wouldn’t suggest reading it. This book is about Serai who is Puerto Rican and is in the eighth grade. Her and her older sister both try to navigate through life dealing with their family trauma and other traumatic issues while living in their apartment in Brooklyn. I’m actually really excited to read this book. While touching triggering subjects, I do believe that this book will be a really good read.

When Sparks Fly by Helena Hunting

Release Date: 21 September 2021

Genres: Romance, Contemporary, Adult, Fiction, Chick Lit

Current Rating on Goodreads: 3.77 Stars

This book is about a woman named Avery. She and her sisters took on the family business in running the Spark House. Avery is living the life she always dreamed until one day she gets into a car accident that changes her life. Declan, her best friend and roommate, takes on the responsibility of taking care of her and being her care giver. Eventually, they begin to dwell on the idea of what life would have been like if they would have dated in college and eventually it turns into something serious. It seems while things are getting serious, the past is catching up to them and it is effecting the relationship that they have built. Not going to lie, it does see like it may be a pretty predictable novel like most romance novels I’ve read, but something feels like it may be different. I don’t know, but I am willing to give it a try.

Nice Girls by Catherine Dang

Release Date: 14 September 2021

Genres: Mystery, Thriller, Fiction, Adult, Suspense, LGBT

Current Rating on Goodreads: 3.65 Stars

When I read the title of this book, for some reason I instantly thought Mean Girls. This book is about a girl named Mary. Mary used to be known as the chubby, awkward and smart girl who got a scholarship to an Ivy League school. Three years later (after Highschool), Mary is back in town, but different. She is thinner, cynical and she feels like a failure. She was kicked out of her Ivy League School at the beginning of her Senior year, but no one knows why. After seeing a lot of familiar faces from high school, one of her old best friends, Olivia, goes missing. Olivia was very popular and everyone admired her, but Mary seems to know the truth about Olivia and know she is the complete opposite of what people thinks. Mary becomes obsessed with Olivia’s sudden disappearance. Not only does this book seem really interesting, but I love that it seems to have some representation for the LGBT community.

Rock Paper Scissors by Alice Feeney

Release Date: 7 September 2021

Genres: Thriller, Mystery, Fiction, Suspense, Adult, Crime

Current Rating on Goodreads: 4.24 Stars

This book is about a married couple. They have been married for 10 years, but they haven’t had the happiest marriage. Their anniversary is coming up and they win a trip to Scotland to celebrate. This is different than they what they would traditionally do and with all the bumpy roads in their marriage, this trip will either make of break their marriage. However, them winning this trip wasn’t random and one of them doesn’t want to see the other happy. Seems like there is a lot of secrets in this marriage and this is an anniversary they will probably never forget. This is another book on this list that I am really excited to read.

Promise That You Will Sing About Me: The Power and Poetry of Kendrick Lamar by Miles Marshall Lewis

Release Date: 28 September 2021

Genres: Poetry, Music, Non-Fiction, Biography, Art

Current Rating on Goodreads: 4.29 Stars

I am a fan of Kendrick Lamar’s music and I figured this would be a good read to kind of learn more about him, his life and art. There’s really not much to say about this one other than I am excited to read this and learn how he was able to get to where he is today.

Her Perfect Life by Hank Phillippi Ryan

Release Date: 14 September 2021

Genres: Thriller, Fiction, Mystery, Suspense, Adult

Current Rating on Goodreads: 3.9 Stars

Another thriller on the list for September’s releases. This book is about Lily Atwood, a well known television reporter. Everyone who knows her, sees her as perfect #PerfectLily. But she’s anything but perfect. She has a secret she has been working hard to hide from the public for years until one day she realizes there is someone out there who actually knows her secret. The anonymous source she uses for her stories, begins to tell Lily about things in her life that she has no idea how the source found out. Worried about who is trying to destroy her life, she has some tough decisions to make. This description kind of reminded me of Pretty Little Liars for some reason.

That’s all of the September releases that I added to my TBR list. In no particular order of course. Have you looked into the September releases? What books are you excited for? Let me know, it may be something that I add to my list as well!
