Okay, so my birthday is not until October. No birthday wishes are in order! These are just some more new releases that are coming out around my birthday that I plan on receiving or purchasing... Something along those lines!
Cleopatra's Daughter by Michelle Moran - September 15, 2009
Okay, so a little early for my birthday, but seriously, I am excited! I loved Moran's previous two novels, so you know I want this one right now! Plus, Michelle is going to be appearing on Historical Tapestry for a week in September. Yay! We are talking a guest post, interview, book review, and likely a give-away or two! Great early birthday present! Michelle is a really nice person, too, so I always enjoy when she visits.
Fire by Kristin Cashore - October 6, 2009
A prequel, I am told, to Graceling (which I reviewed yesterday). I really liked the first book, so I am looking forward to the next foray into Cashore's books! It will be on my birthday radar for sure!
Catching Fire - The Second Book of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - September 1, 2009
Another book that is early. I haven't reviewed The Hunger Games yet, but I am looking forward to reading the next book. Even though I didn't love the first book as much as other people; it will still be fun to see what happens next! I am trying to decide if she is going to go on the buy end of the spectrum or not. I guess we will see what happens in September!
Day After Night by Anita Diamant - September 8, 2009
Usually I want more books that fall in October than September. Working out weird this year! Anyway, the author of The Red Tent (which I loved) has a new book out this year. I haven't read her other book, but really, who is surprised! I will have to make it a priority between now and September!
Other books coming out in September and October that look good, but they are new-to-me authors:
Kingdom of Ohio by Matthew Flaming
Ash by Malinda Lo
There is also Going Bovine by Libba Bray, which I mentioned on a previous post, and other books that I am not thinking about the moment!
So, what September/October books are you looking forward to?
