I’m beyond excited for all of these books.

Yes, I know that all I’ll be doing on September 7 is reading based on how many of these titles come out then. LOL!

1. The Bennet Women by Eden Appiah-Kubi 

Publication Date: September 1

Why: It’s a retelling of Pride and Prejudice. How cool is that?


2. Empire of the Vampire (Empire of the Vampire, #1)  by Jay Kristoff 

Publication Date: September 7

Why: I love stories about scary vampires, and this one definitely seems like it fits the bill.


3. The City Beautiful by Aden Polydoros

Publication Date: September 7

Why: This looks like a nice blend of mystery and dark fantasy.


4.We Are Not Broken by George M. Johnson

Publication Date: September 7

Why: Coming-of-age novels are the perfect thing to start September off with if you ask me.


5. Yusuf Azeem is Not a Hero  by Saadia Faruqi 

Publication Date: September 7

Why: It’s hard to believe that we’ll be observing the 20th anniversary of 9/11 this year. I’m curious to see how this book handles that topic, especially for readers who weren’t alive then or weren’t old enough to remember it.


6. Mary, Will I Die? by Shawn Sarles 

Publication Date: September 7

Why: The idea of Bloody Mary freaked me out when I was a kid! I want to know why these characters were brave or foolhardy enough to try to summon her.


7. To Break a Covenant by Alison Ames  

Publication Date: September 7

Why: Ghost stories are the best, and this one looks particularly fun.


8. Hello (From Here) by Chandler Baker  

Publication Date: September 7

Why: I’m ready for a love story set during Covid-19 lockdowns. Do you all feel the same way?

9. The Shaadi Set-Up  by Lillie Vale 

Publication Date: September 7

Why: Online dating can be so complicated. I like reading books about characters who must navigate it.


10. A Lot Like Adios  by Alexis Daria 

Publication Date: September 14 (Look! We finally moved past September 7. Haha!)

Why: I don’t normally read many romance novels, but I do like the second chance trope. After the 2020 and 2021 so many of us have endured, I’m in the mood for happily ever afters for everyone.
