Goodbye, August. Hello, September!

Hello hello hello!

It feels like ages since I’ve checked in with all of you. August started off crazy. Between personal stuffs that required calling the police and a crazy amount of work at my job, I think things have finally calmed down. & I am officially ready for summer to be over. (I honestly never thought I’d ever say that.)

If you can believe it, I didn’t really read much this August. I’ve just been so burnt out. I couldn’t get myself to decide what to read. I do have a bunch of library books that I borrowed for a work trip that never happened though. & I’ve slowly been starting to read some of them. I’m hopeful September will be a much better reading month. I do have a vacation to Disney in September, which I am VERY excited for.

I absolutely love the Disney parks. I think they’re so fun, and that they’re honestly something for everyone. The one thing I wish Disney World Resort had was a bookstore. I mean, Disney publishes books. Disney Springs is essentially a mall. Why not have a book store? & If you know of a secret bookstore at Disney World that I’ve over looked, please let me know.

Okay. I think that’s enough ranting about Disney World and their lack of bookstores. I’m going to recap for you my anticipated releases for August and September. If you’ve read some of these, feel let me know what you thought of them or leave a link to your review in the comments. If I missed a book you’re anticipated, always feel free to let me know what you’re excited for. I could always add books to my ever growing TBR. Lol.

August Anticipated Releases

1. Making a Play by Abbi Glines (8/20) – I enjoy most of the books I’ve read by Abbi Glines, and I’m interested in seeing how she pulls off Making a Play. Making a Play has a deaf main character and racial conflict based upon the synopsis. Personally, I don’t think I’ve read any books by Glines that dealt with some tougher issues. I’m really interested to see how she presented the story. Plus, I’m also hoping for a great romance.

 September Anticipated Releases

1. Tunnel of Bones by Victoria Schwab (9/3) – This is quite possibly the book I’m most excited for in this entire post. I’m not a fan of horror. I really don’t read anything about ghosts. I just truly enjoyed City of Ghosts and am excited to read more about Cassidy and Jacob’s adventures. Honestly though, if I was reading this back in elementary/middle grade, I probably would have been a bit terrifed. I was never a Goosebumps reader.

2. A Match Made in Mehendi by Nandini Bajpai (9/10) – To be honest, I’m a little tired of novels all about popularity standings in school. However, A Match Made in Mehendi does sound really cute. I’m truly hoping for a friends to more sort of romance. Also, I really love this cover.

3. Frankly in Love by David Yoon (9/10) – I’ve seen this book all over my Twitter feed lately. So I kind of have high expectations. I’m really excited to read this because I think this is something a lot of Asian cultures deal with. As a Japanese American, I personally was never explicitly told that I have to date someone from my race, but I do know that it was somewhat implied. I’m very excited to read this and see if I connect with it as much as everyone on Twitter has.

Are you excited for fall? What books are you most excited for this month?
