My how time flies us by. It is already nearing the end of September. Though granted, I am a tad early this month. This month brings us some interesting releases again. I certainly have at least two pre orders coming in. So what books are you excited about?
- The Hammer of Thor (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard 2) by Rick Riordan
After the release of The Sword of Summer last year, I am curious to see how the journey of Magnus Chase will continue on. I hope we will be surprised.
- Aerie (Magonia 2) by Maria Dahvana Headley
I was really excited about Magonia last year. The cover was gorgeous but the book dissapointed me. And it turned out not to be a standalone which saddened me also. I haven’t heard super positive things about this second book, and I’m not sure I want to get it. But I’ll bee keeping an eye out on the reviews.
- The Graveyard Apartment by Mariko Koike
October is the best month to try out some horror/thriller type of books, right? It’s actually a translation of a Japanese novel from the eighties I believe which I find interesting. I’ll be keeping my eye on it for a bit.
- Gemina (The Illuminae Files 2) by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I almost forgot to add this to the list. I know. How could I? After last year everyone and their mother has been raving about this book. I am curious to see how the second installment is received.
Translated to Dutch Releases
- The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid
Being released at this date according to online sources. Curious to see as the English one isn’t suppose to come out until November?
- The Jewel (The Lone City 1) by Amy Ewing
Being published by the same new Dutch publisher on the same day. Interesting to see this being released in Dutch. I have heard some conflicting things about this book though.
- Schemerzone (The Graveyard Queen 3) by Amanda Stevens
This Dutch translation of The Prophet I have been eagerly awaiting since I read the second book earlier this year. I was completely sold on this series afterwards and I need to read and have all. It was originally translated in 2012, but was no longer printed. This month is the rerelease. (Edit: my pre order of this was cancelled because the publisher won’t release it anymore. Hear me weep)
- Heksenhoeve by An Janssens
Always interesting to see what Dutch and Belgian authors are releasing in the fantasy category. I have the first book of her trilogy so I’m curious to see how this new book will be received.
