Most Anticipated September Releases (bilingual post)

September is a great month to release all the fantastic new books, apparently. And guys!! I'm stoked!! So much good stuff is coming our way and I don't even know how to comprehend this beautiful madness!! Because of this, I decided to post new bookish releases every month until the end of this year. The number of books will vary, obviously, but nevertheless - prepare yourselves!! 



Without further ado, here are my most anticipated releases for the month of September (in no particular order): 

PS.: The color blue used for title, author etc. indicates that it's part of a series/trilogy etc. Red is used for stand-alones. :) 


1. "Three Dark Crowns" by Kendare Blake - Sept. 20th 

I think this book has been on basically everyone's radar recently. Or at least it feels like that. Meaning, I have high hopes in this one and I'm really looking forward to it. 

I'm going to use the Goodreads synopsis, because I don't know anything beyond that about this book, to be honest: 

In every generation on the island of Fennbirn, a set of triplets is born: three queens, all equal heirs to the crown and each possessor of a coveted magic. Mirabella is a fierce elemental, able to spark hungry flames or vicious storms at the snap of her fingers. Katharine is a poisoner, one who can ingest the deadliest poisons without so much as a stomachache. Arsinoe, a naturalist, is said to have the ability to bloom the reddest rose and control the fiercest of lions.

But becoming the Queen Crowned isn’t solely a matter of royal birth. Each sister has to fight for it. And it’s not just a game of win or lose...it’s life or death. The night the sisters turn sixteen, the battle begins.

The last queen standing gets the crown. 


2. "Stealing Snow" by Danielle Paige - Sept. 20th
 
Another fairy tale retelling!!! I love those! This has been on my personal radar probably longer than TDC, since I've seen it on Netgalley. Unfortunately, I wasn't given the opportunity to read it before its release, but I'm still pretty excited about this one! 

Again, this is from Goodreads: 

Seventeen-year-old Snow has spent the majority of her life within the walls of the Whittaker Institute, a high security mental hospital in upstate New York. Deep down, she knows she's not crazy and doesn't belong there. When she meets a mysterious, handsome new orderly and dreams about a strange twisted tree she realizes she must escape and figure out who she really is.

Using her trusting friend Bale as a distraction, Snow breaks free and races into the nearby woods. Suddenly, everything isn't what it seems, the line between reality and fantasy begins to blur, and she finds herself in icy Algid--her true home--with witches, thieves, and a strangely alluring boy named Kai, none of whom she's sure she can trust. As secret after secret is revealed, Snow discovers that she is on the run from a royal lineage she's destined to inherit, a father more powerful and ruthless than she could have imagined, and choices of the heart that could change the fate of everything...including Snow's return to the world she once knew.

This breathtaking first volume begins the story of how Snow becomes a villain, a queen, and ultimately a hero.

3. "The Fever Code" by James Dashner - Sept. 27th 

This already was on my "2016 Releases"- List I posted back in January, however, I'm still pretty pumped for it. 
The Fever Code is a prequel to the Maze Runner series by Dashner and it tells the story of how Thomas became a member of WICKED and how they build the maze and stuff. 

I still haven't read the last book in the Maze Runner series, solely because I have this issue with reading the last books in a series (usually I just don't want it to end) and Tumblr spoiled the ending for me. 

Untagged posts are the worst, guys. 








4. "Labyrinth Lost" by Zoraida Córdova - Sept. 6th

Like Stealing Snow, I had requested this one on Netgalley as well (rejected, again). People are all over this on Twitter and to be honest, so am I! This just sounds so amazing and unique, simply cannot wait to get my hands on it! It's actually releasing tomorrow, but living in Narnia, also known as Austria, I'll probably have to wait one or two more weeks. Can't waiiiitt!! Also YAY for diversity!!!! 

Goodreads (again, lol): 

Nothing says Happy Birthday like summoning the spirits of your dead relatives.

Alex is a bruja, the most powerful witch in a generation...and she hates magic. At her Deathday celebration, Alex performs a spell to rid herself of her power. But it backfires. Her whole family vanishes into thin air, leaving her alone with Nova, a brujo boy she can't trust. A boy whose intentions are as dark as the strange marks on his skin.

The only way to get her family back is to travel with Nova to Los Lagos, a land in-between, as dark as Limbo and as strange as Wonderland...


5. "A Shadow Bright and Burning" by Jessica Cluess - Sept. 20th 

I added this one to my list because a couple of my favorite booktubers have been hyping this book since forever! And it intrigued me. Also, look at that cover! 

Goodreads: 

Henrietta Howel can burst into flames.
Forced to reveal her power to save a friend, she's shocked when instead of being executed, she's invited to train as one of Her Majesty's royal sorcerers.

Thrust into the glamour of Victorian London, Henrietta is declared the chosen one, the girl who will defeat the Ancients, bloodthirsty demons terrorizing humanity. She also meets her fellow sorcerer trainees, handsome young men eager to test her power and her heart. One will challenge her. One will fight for her. One will betray her.

But Henrietta Howel is not the chosen one.

As she plays a dangerous game of deception, she discovers that the sorcerers have their own secrets to protect. With battle looming, what does it mean to not be the one? And how much will she risk to save the city—and the one she loves? 


6. "The Reader" by Traci Chee - Sept. 13th 

Now this one has been literally everywhere. On Booktube, Twitter, Instagram. So many lucky people have had the chance to read this in advance and I'm so jealous!! *ugly sobbing*

The Cover is beautiful. Like, look at it!! And a POC character!! I'm !!! This makes me so unbelievably happy, you have no idea!! 

Goodreads (I suck at summaries, okay?!): 

Sefia knows what it means to survive. After her father is brutally murdered, she flees into the wilderness with her aunt Nin, who teaches her to hunt, track, and steal. But when Nin is kidnapped, leaving Sefia completely alone, none of her survival skills can help her discover where Nin’s been taken, or if she’s even alive. The only clue to both her aunt’s disappearance and her father’s murder is the odd rectangular object her father left behind, an object she comes to realize is a book—a marvelous item unheard of in her otherwise illiterate society. With the help of this book, and the aid of a mysterious stranger with dark secrets of his own, Sefia sets out to rescue her aunt and find out what really happened the day her father was killed—and punish the people responsible.


7. "Sometimes We Tell the Truth" by Kim Zarins - Sept. 6th 

Okay, this is on my list because one of my absolute favorite people (and authors) loveeees this book! So yeah, complete biased reasons. 
But it sounds fun, so why the hell not. And this is a contemporary story and usually like those :)

Goodreads: 

In this contemporary retelling of The Canterbury Tales, a group of teens on a bus ride to Washington, DC, each tell a story—some fantastical, some realistic, some downright scandalous—in pursuit of the ultimate prize: a perfect score.

Jeff boards the bus for the Civics class trip to Washington, DC, with a few things on his mind:
-Six hours trapped with his classmates sounds like a disaster waiting to happen.
-He somehow ended up sitting next to his ex-best friend, who he hasn’t spoken to in years.
-He still feels guilty for the major part he played in pranking his teacher, and the trip’s chaperone, Mr. Bailey.
-And his best friend Cannon, never one to be trusted and banned from the trip, has something “big” planned for DC.

But Mr. Bailey has an idea to keep everyone in line: each person on the bus is going to have the chance to tell a story. It can be fact or fiction, realistic or fantastical, dark or funny or sad. It doesn’t matter. Each person gets a story, and whoever tells the best one will get an automatic A in the class.

But in the middle of all the storytelling, with secrets and confessions coming out, Jeff only has one thing on his mind—can he live up to the super successful story published in the school newspaper weeks ago that convinced everyone that he was someone smart, someone special, and someone with something to say.

In her debut novel, Kim Zarins breathes new life into Chaucer’sThe Canterbury Tales in a fresh and contemporary retelling that explores the dark realities of high school, and the subtle moments that bring us all together.


8. "A Change of Heart" by Sonali Dev - Sept. 27th 

Again, saw this one on Netgalley and it piqued my interest immediately. Firstly, because of the gorgeous cover and secondly because it sounds really really interesting and has this Cecelia Ahern kinda vibe to it! 

Goodreads: 

Dr. Nikhil 'Nic' Joshi had it all—marriage, career, purpose. Until, while working for Doctors Without Borders in a Mumbai slum, his wife, Jen, discovered a black market organ transplant ring. Before she could expose the truth, Jen was killed.

Two years after the tragedy, Nic is a cruise ship doctor who spends his days treating seasickness and sunburn and his nights in a boozy haze. On one of those blurry evenings on deck, Nic meets a woman who makes a startling claim: she received Jen’s heart in a transplant and has a message for him. Nic wants to discount Jess Koirala’s story as absurd, but there’s something about her reckless desperation that resonates despite his doubts.

Jess has spent years working her way out of a nightmarish life in Calcutta and into a respectable Bollywood dance troupe. Now she faces losing the one thing that matters—her young son, Joy. She needs to uncover the secrets Jen risked everything for; but the unforeseen bond that results between her and Nic is both a lifeline and a perilous complication.



Now this was it for the "English" releases, now I'm going to talk about the German ones. Therefore, the last part of this post is going to be in German ;) 



Also Leute, September ist ja ein toller Monat für uns Bücherliebhaber/innen (naja, so genommen ist dann ja jeder Monat ein toller Monat, oder??). Hiermit möchte ich euch nun ein paar Bücher vorstellen, die im September herauskommen und die ich unbedingt lesen möchte. Damit meine ich nicht Bücher, die ins Deutsche übersetzt, sondern eher Bücher, die von deutschsprachigen Autoren und Autorinnen geschrieben wurden :) 



1. "Für dich soll's tausend Tode regnen" von Anna Pfeffer - 26. Sept. 

Dieses Buch hab ich durch einen reinen Zufall auf Twitter gesehen und sofort auf meine Liste hinzugefügt, weil es einfach nur mega-lustig klingt und ich es unbedingt lesen möchte. 

Und meine Schwester heißt Emi also ist es doppelt witzig. *GIVE IT TO MEEEE*

Goodreads: 

Leuten, die Emi nerven, verpasst sie in Gedanken eine Todesart. Und seit dem Umzug weiß sie nicht, wer mehr nervt: die Neue ihres Vaters, die sich ernsthaft in der Mutterrolle sieht, ihr Strahlemann von Bruder, der das auch noch gut findet (stirbt bestimmt mal, weil er auf seiner Schleimspur ausgerutscht ist), oder Erik, Alphatier an ihrer neuen Schule, der einen auf cool macht und sie ständig provoziert (stirbt bestimmt mal an Hirntumor wegen übermäßigen Handykonsums). Als sie sich in Chemie mit Alpha-Erik anlegt, kracht es im wortwörtlichen Sinn zwischen den beiden. Die Strafe dafür sind acht Samstage Graffiti schrubben. Mit Erik! Kann das Leben noch beschissener sein? Um aus der Nummer rauszukommen, schlägt Emi einen Wettstreit vor. Doch Erik ist nicht kleinzukriegen. Emi wünscht ihm tausend Tode an den Hals, bis sie merkt, dass es gar nicht so nervig ist, Zeit mit Erik zu verbringen ...




2. "Nebelgänger" von Bernhard Trecksel - 19. Sept. 

Um ehrlich zu sein, keine Ahnung wo ich auf dieses Buch gestoßen bin, abeeer ich kann's kaum erwarten es zu lesen!! 

Es klingt einfach nur unglaublich spannend und das Cover ist so genial *-*

Goodreads: 

Der Nebel bringt den Tod.

Der Assassine Clach ist die letzte Waffe im Kampf gegen die Titanen. Diese finsteren Götter verfolgen kein geringeres Ziel als die Vernichtung der Welt. Clachs besondere Fähigkeit, nicht nur den Körper zu töten, sondern auch die Seele zu vernichten, ist das einzige, was sie fürchten. Doch er hat kaum Hoffnung auf Erfolg, denn die Pläne der Titanen sind bereits zu weit fortgeschritten, als dass er sie alleine aufhalten könnte. Clach muss sich mit seinen alten Widersachern verbünden – doch denen scheint die Rache an ihm wichtiger als die Rettung der Welt.



3. "Plötzlich Banshee" von Nina McKay - 1. Sept. 

AHHH!! Auf dieses Buch bin ich ja sooo gespannt!! Der Piper Verlag war so nett und hat mir ein Exemplar zugeschickt und ich kann es kaum erwarten!! Es klingt einfach nur genial und das Cover erst!! 

Goodreads: 

Alana ist eine Banshee, eine Todesfee der irischen Mythologie. Sie sieht über dem Kopf jedes Menschen eine rückwärts laufende Uhr, die in roten Ziffern die noch verbleibenden Monate, Tage, Stunden und Minuten seiner Lebenszeit anzeigt. Da Banshees in dem Ruf stehen, Unglück zu bringen, bleibt sie lieber für sich. Allerdings gestaltet sich das gar nicht so einfach, denn Alana kreischt automatisch in bester Banshee-Manier wie eine Sirene los, wenn ihr ein Mensch begegnet, der in den nächsten Tagen sterben wird. Doch dann tauchen in Santa Fe mehrere Leichen auf, die Alana ins Visier des attraktiven Detectives Dylan Shane geraten lassen. Kann sie das Geheimnis der dunklen Sekte lüften, die scheinbar magische Wesen sammelt? Und werden sowohl Detective Shane als auch ihr bester Freund Clay den Kontakt mit Alana überleben?
