Looking Forward: September
Sometimes it's really hard for me to keep track of what comes out what month, especially while juggling early reviews and publisher catalogues and all the other confusing bookish things bloggers deal with. It's just a LOT OF BOOKS ALL THE TIME. How do you ever keep them straight?! So on the last day of the month, I post a guide to what books I'm most looking forward to in the following month and that you should keep an eye on. So, since it's the last day in August, here are the September releases most tempting me:
ARGHHH WHY DO ALL THE BOOKS COME OUT IN SEPTEMBER OMG TELL THEM TO
Featured book of the month:
Heir of DUH.
100 Sideways Miles by Andrew Smith
I loved Smith's Grasshopper Jungle for reasons I cannot even begin to untangle, so obviously I'm excited for this one.
Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini
Dual realities! Salem witches! FIIIIRE!
Rites of Passage by Joy N. Hensley
Girl attends an all boys military academy and faces fierce opposition. Apparently feminist nut-punching rage ensues.

Annabel Lee retelling! Creeeepiness!
Egg & Spoon by Grgeory Maguire
RUSSIAN FOLKLORE FAIRY TALE.
Illusions of Fate by Kiersten White
I already read this fluffy, sparkly fantasy and thoroughly enjoyed myself.

The sequel to The Burning Sky, which I loved intensely.

Twins! Secrets! This will be my first Jandy Nelson book, but most of the world seems to agree that she is flawless.
Hook's Revenge by Heidi Schulz
A funny middle grade Peter Pan sequel/retelling about Captain Hook's daughter!
Unmade by Sarah Rees Brennan
ASDJSDKFSLDFJSH THIS BOOK WILL DESTROY ME
The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place by Julie Berry

Story set during desegregation in 1950's Virginia about a black girl and white girl who fall in love and if that already doesn't make you want it I can't help you

YA RETELLING OF THE NUTCRACKER.
Belzhar by Meg Wolitzer
Magic journal, a school for troubled but brilliant kids, unreliable narrators, twisty turny.
