I know I can’t be the only one who is ready for sweater weather! This month I’m feeling kind of mood readerish with the change in seasons. So I’m going to go with a couple of books on my TBR that have caught my eye in the last few days. Check them out and join me in some sweater weather reading!
Special thanks to the publishers who provided arcs and/or finished copies. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
September Reading Goals Hopefuls List
- The Door of No Return by Kwame Alexander: I’ve been wanting read one of Alexander’s books, so when I saw a book tour for it, I thought it would be a great opportunity. “11-year-old Kofi Offin dreams of water. Its mysterious, immersive quality. The rich, earthy scent of the current. The clearness, its urgent whisper that beckons with promises and secrets…” Pub Date: Sept. 27, 2022 Book Tour Date: Sept. 28, 2022
- Wildblood by Lauren Blackwood: This is an arc, but I was so intrigued by Blackwood’s debut novel that I’m interested in what she will do with this one. This time the setting is a jungle with ghostly monsters and magic tour guides. Pub Date: Feb. 7, 2023
- Jackal by Erin E. Adams: It was the setting that hooked me on this one, because I know a few people who are from Johnstown, PA. “A young Black girl goes missing in the woods outside her white rust belt town. But she’s not the first—and she may not be the last. . . .” Pub Date: Oct. 4, 2022
- Hester by Laurie Lico Albanese: I’m an English teacher, what can I say I couldn’t resist! “A vivid reimagining of the woman who inspired Hester Prynne, the tragic heroine of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter, and a journey into the enduring legacy of New England’s witchcraft trials.” Pub Date: Oct. 4, 2022
- The Hookup Plan by Farrah Rochon: An adult rom-com featuring the enemies to lovers trope between a pediatric surgeon and a millionaire. Pub Date: Aug. 2, 2022
- The Getaway by Lamar Giles: I’ve been looking forward to reading this thriller/horror since I heard the author talk about it at a preview event. He had me at the theme park setting because I know that is going to be scary. Pub Date: Sept. 20, 2022
