September’s YA Releases

Like May, September seems to be a busy month for YA publication. I can’t wait to dive into these six books. 

6: They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera33385229

On September 5, a little after midnight, Death-Cast calls Mateo Torrez and Rufus Emeterio to give them some bad news: They’re going to die today. Mateo and Rufus are total strangers, but, for different reasons, they’re both looking to make a new friend on their End Day. The good news: There’s an app for that. It’s called the Last Friend, and through it, Rufus and Mateo are about to meet up for one last great adventure and to live a lifetime in a single day.

I love that this was published on the 5th of Sept, the day this book starts.

 

5: The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding (The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding #1) by Alexandra Bracken

“I would say it’s a pleasure to meet thee, Prosperity Oceanus Redding, but truly, I only anticipate the delights of destroying thy happiness.”

Prosper is the only unexceptional Redding in his old and storied family history — that is, until he discovers the demon living inside him. Turns out Prosper’s great-great-great-great-great-something grandfather made — and then broke — a contract with a malefactor, a demon who exchanges fortune for eternal servitude. And, weirdly enough, four-thousand-year-old Alastor isn’t exactly the forgiving type.

The fiend has reawakened with one purpose — to destroy the family whose success he ensured and who then betrayed him. With only days to break the curse and banish Alastor back to the demon realm, Prosper is playing unwilling host to the fiend, who delights in tormenting him with nasty insults and constant attempts trick him into a contract. Yeah, Prosper will take his future without a side of eternal servitude, thanks.

Little does Prosper know, the malefactor’s control over his body grows stronger with each passing night, and there’s a lot Alastor isn’t telling his dim-witted (but admittedly strong-willed) human host. 

From #1 New York Times best-selling author Alexandra Bracken comes a tale of betrayal and revenge, of old hurts passed down from generation to generation. Can you ever fully right a wrong, ever truly escape your history? Or will Prosper and Alastor be doomed to repeat it?

Bracken is one of my favourite authors from this year! In the summer, I read Passenger, and I thought it was brilliant (what’s not to love? Pirates, romance and time time travel are the best!). Review: Passenger

 

4: If There’s No Tomorrow by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Lena Wise is always looking forward to tomorrow, especially at the start of her senior year. She’s ready to pack in as much friend time as possible, to finish college applications, and to maybe let her childhood best friend Sebastian know how she really feels about him. For Lena, the upcoming year is going to be epic–one of opportunities and chances.

Until one choice, one moment, destroys everything.
33998316



Now Lena isn’t looking forward to tomorrow. Not when friend time may never be the same. Not when college applications feel all but impossible. Not when Sebastian might never forgive her for what happened.

For what she let happen.

With the guilt growing each day, Lena knows that her only hope is to move on. But how can she move on when she and her friends’ entire existences have been redefined? How can she move on when tomorrow isn’t even guaranteed?

If you’re not already a HUGE fan of JLA like I am, then just know this: Armentrout’s newest release is Sarah J. Maas’ current– and she said in her newsletter that she adores it! How can you pass that? Onyx ReviewOpal Review, & Origin Review.

 

157978483: There’s Someone in Your House by Stephanie Perkins

Scream meets YA in this hotly-anticipated new novel from the bestselling author of Anna and the French Kiss.

One-by-one, the students of Osborne High are dying in a series of gruesome murders, each with increasing and grotesque flair. As the terror grows closer and the hunt intensifies for the killer, the dark secrets among them must finally be confronted.

International bestselling author Stephanie Perkins returns with a fresh take on the classic teen slasher story that’s fun, quick-witted, and completely impossible to put down. 

We all know Perkins’ has written the best YA contemporary fluff from this decade, now she’s taking over horror/thriller?!? The only other book I’ve read with a similar plot is Black Ice, which I looooved. I’m keen to read this! Lola and the Boy Next Door (Anna and the French Kiss #2) Review & Isla and the Happily Ever After (Anna and the French Kiss #3) Review.

 

2: Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart

The story of a young woman whose diabolical smarts are her ticket into a charmed life. But how many times can someone reinvent themselves? You be the judge.

Imogen is a runaway heiress, an orphan, a cook, and a cheat. 33843362
Jule is a fighter, a social chameleon, and an athlete. 
An intense friendship. A disappearance. A murder, or maybe two. 
A bad romance, or maybe three.
Blunt objects, disguises, blood, and chocolate. The American dream, superheroes, spies, and villains. 
A girl who refuses to give people what they want from her.
A girl who refuses to be the person she once was.

Lockhart was my favourite author of 2015, and my all-time favourite mystery author (even though I don’t enjoy mystery, usually). I can’t WAIT to get my hands on this!

 

and finally…

1: Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas

31450852

In the next installment of the New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series, follow Chaol on his sweeping journey to a distant empire.

Chaol Westfall has always defined himself by his unwavering loyalty, his strength, and his position as the Captain of the Guard. But all of that has changed since the glass castle shattered, since his men were slaughtered, since the King of Adarlan spared him from a killing blow, but left his body broken.
His only shot at recovery lies with the legendary healers of the Torre Cesme in Antica—the stronghold of the southern continent’s mighty empire. And with war looming over Dorian and Aelin back home, their survival might lie with Chaol and Nesryn convincing its rulers to ally with them.

But what they discover in Antica will change them both—and be more vital to saving Erilea than they could have imagined.

Yes, I’m that basic b*tch. I don’t even like Chaol that much. So a whole book dedicated to his journey? Welp. Let’s just hope it’s worth my while, so I can be eventually reunited with my pals in the north continents.


 

So that’s it! What’s caught your eye for this month’s releases? Have you pre-ordered anything?

        • Oh THAT’s what it stands for! Haha, thanks for informing me. I haven’t read it yet but I don’t think it’d be something I’d like– I’m not into RP and techy worlds. I have read the first two Legend books, and found them mediocre. Typical YA dystopia. Idk.

                • I still haven’t read anything by Bardough (is that how you spell her name? Sorry it’s 5am and I’m using my mobile– I’m not bothered to go onto GR). I’ve heard of Moxie and it seems AMAZING. I can’t wait to read it. I’m not usually one for contemporaries but Spring is coming up (for me) so I’m sure I’ll be more in the mood for the genre 🙂 thanks for reminding me of Moxie, I totally forgot about this release!
