September YA Book Releases | 2017

Okay, can I just say that August was the fastest month of the year?

I don’t know about you, but it went by faster than the rest of the year has, and I’m not sure if I should be scared or just ignore it. (Let’s be honest – there’s no way I have the attention span to care for more than a few weeks)

Anyway! There are some incredible new releases and sequels coming out this month! So let’s get on with this post! I organize by release date, BTW

The Last MagicianThe Last Magician \ Lisa Maxwell

July 18th

In modern day New York, magic is all but extinct. The remaining few who have an affinity for magic—the Mageus—live in the shadows, hiding who they are. Any Mageus who enters Manhattan becomes trapped by the Brink, a dark energy barrier that confines them to the island.

Esta is a thief, raised to steal magical artifacts from the sinister Order that created the Brink. With her ability to manipulate time, Esta can pilfer from the past, collecting artifacts before they even realizes she’s there. And all of Esta’s training has been for one job: traveling back to 1902 to steal a book containing the secrets of the Order before the Magician can destroy it and doom the Mageus.

But Old New York is a dangerous world ruled by ruthless gangs and secret societies, a world where the very air crackles with magic. Nothing is as it seems, including the Magician himself.

The Color ProjectThe Color Project \ Sierra Abrams

July 18th

Bernice Aurora Wescott has one thing she doesn’t want anyone to know: her name. That is, until Bee meets Levi, the local golden boy who runs a charity organization called The Color Project.

Levi is not at all shy about attempting to guess Bee’s real name; his persistence is one of the many reasons why Bee falls for him. But while Levi is everything she never knew she needed, giving up her name terrifies her.

When unexpected news of an illness in the family drains Bee’s summer of everything bright, she is pushed to the breaking point. Losing herself in The Color Project—a world of weddings, funerals, cancer patients, and hopeful families that the charity funds—is no longer enough. Bee must hold up the weight of her family, but to do that, she needs Levi. She’ll have to give up her name and let him in completely or lose the best thing that’s ever happened to her.

July 25th

Sixteen-year-old Sorina has spent most of her life within the smoldering borders of the Gomorrah Festival. Yet even among the many unusual members of the traveling circus-city, Sorina stands apart as the only illusion-worker born in hundreds of years. This rare talent allows her to create illusions that others can see, feel and touch, with personalities all their own. Her creations are her family, and together they make up the cast of the Festival’s Freak Show.

But no matter how lifelike they may seem, her illusions are still just that—illusions. Or so she always believed…until one of them is murdered.

Desperate to protect her family, Sorina must track down the culprit and determine how they killed a person who doesn’t actually exist. Her search for answers leads her to gossip-worker Luca, and their investigation sends them through a haze of political turmoil, forbidden romance, and the most sinister corners of the Festival. But as the killer continues murdering Sorina’s illusions one by one, she must unravel the horrifying truth before all of her loved ones disappear.

ACOWAR is the third and final book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series and I am so excited!

Into the Water

Always and Forever, Lara Jean (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #3)

Always and Forever \ Lara Jean

May 2nd

The third book in the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy.

It seems like a cute contemporary, though I haven’t read any of the books. The first book was originally a stand alone, so if you don’t want to read this book, you can just read the first one and it’ll be fine.

Flame in the Mist (Flame in the Mist, #1)

Flame in the Mist \ Renée Ahdieh

May 16th

A Mulan retelling. That’s the easiest way to say it.

I believe it also has magic in it, and it is different from disney movie. If you want more information, go to the Goodreads page linked below ↓ It’s way better than anything I could put.

Lord of Shadows (The Dark Artifices, #2)Lord of Shadows \ Cassandra Clare

May 23rd

Lord of Shadows is book #2 in the Dark Artifices series by Cassandra Clare.

Obviously, I can’t say too much. Plus, I haven’t read any Cassandra Clare. Yet.

When Dimple Met RishiWhen Dimple met Rishi \ Sandhya Menon

May 30th

This is an own-voices novel about an Indian-American teen, Dimple, who just wants to be a web developer and forget most of the tradition Indian traditions.

That’s the basic idea, but please go read the Goodreads description – it pushed me over the edge to finally read this book, which has been getting some AMAZING reviews!
