So Many Books!
I can't believe that September is almost here! School has arrived, which means new adventures, new things to learn, and, most importantly, new books to read! Be sure to let me know which book you are most looking forward to this month.
They Both Die at the End, by: Adam Silvera
I haven't ever read an Adam Silvera book before, but I have been meaning to for a while, and this one sounds so interesting. The concept of Death being a character in any story always appeals to me for some reason, and the take that this book sounds like it is going to take on Death sounds very unique. I also love the way this book gives off the "life's next great adventure" vibe, and I can't wait to see where it leads.
Genuine Fraud, by: E. Lockhart
I cannot even begin to express my love for E. Lockhart. I read We Were Liars about three years ago, and it is still one of my favorite mystery novels. It's one of those books that's better if you go into it not knowing a whole lot, and from the vibes I'm getting from this synopsis, this book is going to be in the same boat. I haven't read a mystery in a while, so I'm excited to see what this one has to offer.
Fireblood, by: Elly Blake
I got the first book of this series, Frostblood, in an Uppercase Box back in January, and really enjoyed it. It wasn't just a fantasy story, it also had some adventure and a few dystopian elements while still taking place in a medieval-like time period. The barbaric energy that surrounds this series is really compelling, and I can't wait to get back into the world of fire and frost.
Warcross, by: Marie Lu
shocked when instead she gets a call from the game’s creator, the elusive young billionaire Hideo Tanaka, with an irresistible offer. He needs a spy on the inside of this year’s tournament in order to uncover a security problem . . . and he wants Emika for the job. With no time to lose, Emika’s whisked off to Tokyo and thrust into a world of fame and fortune that she’s only dreamed of. But soon her investigation uncovers a sinister plot, with major consequences for the entire Warcross empire.
Marie Lu's writing style is so gripping, and the fact that she is coming out with a gaming book is a dream come true. If you didn't know already, I love these types of books, with Ready Player One by Ernest Cline and the Heir Apparent books by Vivian Vande Velde (which are three of the most underrated and greatest YA gaming fantasy books of all time. If you haven't read any of them, you need to, ASAP) being at the top of my list. I can't wait to see what Warcross brings to the table, and if it can outdo the best of the best.
Moxie, by: Jennifer Mathieu
I am so excited for this book for no other reason than #girlpower. Every once in a while, I just need to read a book or watch a movie that oozes girl power, and I think this is going to be the next story that fits the category. I hope this book turns out to be as feel-good as it sounds, and I can't wait to get my hands on a copy.

All I really want to do today is go to the book store, drink coffee and read.
