Hey there my fellow book lovers! Hope you all are having a fantastic day! Don’t you all just love the Fall season? For me, its the times that alludes to such cozy vibes where you can snuggle under the blankets with some tea/coffee and a good book 🙂
Now that we are approaching this season, we have a plethora of new book releases on the way! Here are a couple that I am really looking forward to:
Author: Naomi Novik
September 29th 2020 by Del Rey Books
Naomi Novik is certainly a well established writer in the book community through her previous novels – Uprooted and Spinning Silver (both of which I still need to read – Shame on me!) BUT OMG. The Summary itself has me sold! A school for the magically gifted? YES! And one with lurking dangers and secrets! DOUBLE YES! I can’t wait for this one! Sounds like the perfect book for the Fall time!
Author: Tracey Deonn

The plotline of this novel seems so intriguing with the mix of the Arthurian Legend and Demon Hunters such as the ones from the Shadowhunter series. I love that we follow a woman on color in this YA fantasy since it is not typically done within this genre so I am excited to see how this goes!
Author: Adrienne Young
September 1st 2020 by Wednesday Books
Ok. This book just alludes MAJOR Pirates of the Caribbean vibes! Not going to lie, that may be the sole reason why I will be after this book! Who doesn’t love an adventurous seafaring journey filled with pirates?
Author: Jessica Jung

I will be honest, I am a bit curious about this novel. I used to listen to SNSD when they were active so I am interested to see what Jessica has to offer in this story. Now I know we should NOT judge a book by its cover but I am getting a romcom, cutsey type vibe but I do hope that she dives into deeper themes and messages. I also noticed that there seems to be additional books in the work for this . . . so is this a series or a set of companion novels . . . Guess we have to wait and see!
Author: Kerri Maniscalco
October 27th 2020 by JIMMY Patterson
Ever since her debut series, Stalking Jack the Ripper, I knew Kerri Maniscalco would join my favorite authors list. Plus Audrey and Thomas were probably one of my favorite book couples to ever exist! And when I heard she had another novel in the works, I was beyond excited and the synopsis sounds so interesting! Another thrilling mystery!! And I have a feeling she is going to destroy us all with another intoxicating romance!
It’s not often we see V.E Schwab enter into the realm of romance since her previous novels seem to stay more within the fantasy/adventure territory. I personally do not automatically reach for romance novels but this one caught my attention: “a young woman makes a Faustian bargain to live forever and is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets.” HOW CAN YOU NOT WANT TO READ THIS? I really wonder how Victoria is able to get her concepts for her books. Her imagination and creativity astounds me sometimes.

I am a huge fan of the Folk of the Air series ( I still need to read Queen of Nothing but I will get to it, I swear!) so as soon as I heard we will be getting a short story collection within the Elfhame realm, this was added to my most anticipated list!
Author: Chloe Gong

I am a huge fan of retellings so when I heard this book was Romeo and Juliet retelling set in 1920s Shanghai, you bet I was intrigued. While Romeo and Juliet is not my favorite Shakespearean work, I am interested to see how this plays out.
First off, that cover is stellar! And second, having read some early review of this novel, I have feeling this is going to be a fantastic fantasy series!
And now onto a book which may potentially destroy me. Who am I kidding? I was already destroyed with the amount of emotions Sabaa Tahir made me go through within this entire series! And now that the series is coming to an end, I am a bit nervous but also excited to see how the events will turn out. I just want my characters to be happy . . . IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK? IS IT????
How about you guys? What new fall/ winter book releases are you looking forward to?
Until next time, keep reading and I will see you all soon with another bookish post!
