Most Anticipated September Releases!! // some of my most anticipated reads of the year!

Hi friends! I’m super excited to share my most anticipated September book releases because there are some fantastic-sounding books coming out!

September 1st

We Are Not Free by Traci Chee | This is an OwnVoices novel for Japanese-American representation I believe. It follows a group of Japanese-American teens in San Francisco during WW II, and the mass incarcerations that happened there. Usually I don’t go for historical fiction but this sounds so important, and emotional, and I didn’t even know America had incarcenated Japanese-Americans so heck yeah I’m reading this.

Recommended For You by Laura Silverman | This is pitched as To All The Boys I Love Before meets You’ve Got Mail and UM. I’M HYPED. There’s a bookstore and possible enemies-to-lovers and ahhh this sounds so good.

Fable by Adrienne Young | THIS IS ONE OF MY MOST ANTICIPATED READS OF THE YEAR. Adrienne Young is one of my all-time favorite authors, her atmosphere writing skills are out of the park. And this involves the sea!! And possibly pirates!! I’m so very excited.

Dating Makes Perfect by Pintip Dunn | This is OwnVoices for the Thai American representation! I actually enjoyed Dunn’s previous novel Malice earlier this year, and this one is a contemporary rom-com. It basically plays with the whole “Asian parents don’t want their kids to date in highschool” idea and turns it around. So now, our main character’s parents want her to practice fake dating in high school. I am so here for this.

September 8th

These Vengeful Hearts by Katherine Laurin | I go through phases where I just want to read Mean Girls/Gossip Girl type novels and this sounds like it’ll be the perfect read for that time! This basically follows a girl who wants revenge on The Red Court (see: Elite Mean Girls) for what they did to her sister. Let’s goooo.

September 15

K-POP Confidential by Stephan Lee | This follows a Korean-American teenager whose life is planned out, until the moment she qualifies for an audition as a Kpop trainee. This is a book detailing the struggles and joys of being a kpop trainee and there’s forbidden romance and ahh. After loving Shine, I NEED another kpop book!

Horrid by Katrina Leno | “a haunting contemporary horror novel that explores themes of mental illness, rage, and grief, twisted with spine-chilling elements of Stephen King and Agatha Christie.” Plus that cover. Hello, I want you right this instant book.

Kingdom of the Wicked by Kerri Maniscalco | Murder and sisters and witches and demons and romance. Guys. I want this one too.

September 22

The Silvered Serpents by Roshani Chokshi | GUYS. THIS SEQUEL IS AMAZING. I seriously can’t wait for this to come out so we can all freak out over the Heist Children together.

Shine by Jessica Jung | I told you this book was good. Even if you’re not a fan of Girls Generation, you should totally read this. It’s entertaining and emotional, with a surprising focus on the biracial struggle and sexism within the Kpop industry. Go buy this, you seriously won’t regret it.

So that’s it! I REALLY narrowed down my picks for the month to the ones I thought I’d most want to read. Tell me:

What’s your most anticipated September release?
