Cover Book Blog Kat Snark covertocoverlit Book Blogger Book blog reader reading Releases I'm Looking Forward To This Fall Autumn 2019 feat. too many books book blog new releases goodreads fuck

Hello lovelies!!

There are so many great reads being released this month!! My wallet (and I) cannot keep up 😱 I just counted the books on this list and was AGHAST when I saw there were thirty!! Oh my lord I. Can. Not. It’s autumn, which means I want all the books, but also I’m just rereading all my favorites for the duration of the season. BUT I also want all of these reads as well. It’s a problem, what can I say. A lot of these books are on my fall TBR, and I’m very much looking forward to reading them!! 

PS – have you ever noticed that a lot of books release on the same day? Like out of these 30 books, there’s probably like seven different release date’s total, and most of them fall in the same four. It’s crazy. No wonder I always go broke in the fall – Christmas shopping + book buying?? Insane. That’s how they getcha. 

Each book cover will take you to the Goodreads page. 

       

The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

You know, I don’t know much about this one, admittedly. I love Renee Ahdieh’s sumptuous writing style from The Wrath and the Dawn, and I really hope she delivers on that promise of more!! Plus, it’s supposed to be a vampire story! Everyone’s all “Vampires are Back!” and I’m over here wondering when they left, because I still love vampires. A lot of my reader-friends were reading this, and from what they’ve told me and just general feedback I’ve seen, this is not a vampire story. It merely lives in a world where vampires exist, which is a tad disappointing. But I’m relieved that I know that, over wise I’d have spent the whole book waiting for the vampires to show up (like everyone else has). Nevertheless, I’m super pumped! I’m getting a lot of The Originals vibes from this – probably because it’s about the seedy underbelly of New Orleans and it *has* (but doesn’t feature) vampires. Release Date: Oct. 8, 2019

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

I love college books, and Ninth House makes a promise that I hope it can fulfill. The main character has a bit of a shady and horrifyingly traumatic past, and she’s offered a second-chance to attend Yale University… with the task of monitoring the secret societies by her mysterious benefactor. I’m still waiting a book about witches in college (PLEASE!!), but I’ll certainly take this one while we wait. I’m hearing that this one is a very atmospheric read with many content warnings, so this sounds like my kind of book about living and surviving. Let’s do it! Release Date: Oct. 8, 2019

Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

This is the book I’ve been anticipating ever since 2016 when I first read The Raven Boys (I think I have that date right). If you’ve read The Raven Boys, you know all about the gang: Gansey, Noah, Blue, Adam Parrish, and Ronan Lynch. This series is all about Ronan Lynch and his strange ability!!! !!! !!! This is it guys!! This is where Pynch finally becomes a thing 💕✨ Ronan was always my very favorite character of The Raven Boys series, and I cannot wait. Ms. Stiefvater’s writing in that series was a dream, and I really can’t wait to be there again! (And isn’t the paperback version glorious???) Release Date: Nov. 5, 2019

        

Guinevere Deception (Camelot Rising #1) by Kiersten White

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

This book sounds freaking bad-ASS. I’m always interested in fairytale retellings, where they flip around and retell classic stories, and although this isn’t a fairy tale, it is a legend that everyone knows. So same thing 😁 This one sounds actually amazing. With magic threatening to tear the world apart and destroy King Arthur’s Kingdom, Merlin comes up with a desperate solution and sends in Guinevere to protect him and pose as his wife. But she’s not human, and who she is must remain a secret forever. This one – with forbidden romance no doubt!! – sounds so awesome, and I do love watching a bumbling newbie try to get through court life. I don’t know anything about it, but it’s always entertaining! Release Date: Nov. 5, 2019

Burning Shadow (Origins #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

Jennifer L. Armentrout was an auto-buy author of mine for a long time, especially with how much I loved her Obsidian series. Daemon Black, from that book, could cure ANY mood I was in and I turned to him often when bad moods struck. That was, quite literally, the series of my childhood, side-by-side with Percy Jackson and Harry Potter. Now, she’s written a sister-series that follows one of the characters from those books, and I’m absolutely terrified that it won’t live up to mantle I have it on in my brain. This is book two of this series, meaning that it’s the second time I’ve gone through this crisis. Have you read both series? Should I pick it up? Release Date: Oct. 8, 2019

Now Entering Addamsville by Francesca Zappia

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

Eliza and Her Monsters remains one of my favorite books, and was the best books of 2017, along with Six of Crows and Strange, the Dreamer. That was a good year for books! Then I read Made You Up, also by Ms. Zappia, and adored that one as well. Obviously, she’s an author I clearly work well with, and this one is a perfect mystery thriller to enjoy right around the spooky holidays! I’m just waiting for my current credit card bill to come in – shocker, it’s too high to add more books to – so I can snag this one! Release date: Oct. 1, 2019

Twice in a Blue Moon by Christina Lauren

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

This book literally sounds so sweet. Insta-love may be the bane of my existence, but a good fall-hard romance is still a great addition to my reading pile. Especially when they get ripped apart and find each other years later and have an adorable second-chance romance!! It gets me excited!!! Oh, was that this book? My apologies. This book gets me excited!!! When the main character, Tate thinks her guy Sam revealed a deep secret, they don’t see each other for another ten years (that’s a full decade, people!) before getting the chance to right wrongs and clear the air. Do I want this? yes, yes and yes!! Release Date: Oct. 22, 2019

Baking Me Crazy by Karla Sorensen

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon | My Review

I was really looking forward to this one because of the friends-to-lovers trope, and the dash of unrequited love it had. AND it’s a SmartyPants Romance book! I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this one, and it absolutely lived up to the hype. I ended up grinning the whole time, having a lot of fun. Levi and Joss were the best kinds of friends, and their interplay was a lot of fun. Levi, who came into Joss’s life at a time when she wasn’t ready for date-feelings due to major life-changing life events, decided to just be her friend until she was ready. But by the time he found out he was ready, she was already having date-feelings… and they weren’t for him! Yikes… Release Date: Oct. 8, 2019

Beard Necessities (Winston Brothers #7) by Penny Reid 

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

YOOOOO. I just read (last week) Beard with Me by Penny Reid, which is the origin story for Scarlett/Claire and Billy Winston. I already know their second-chance love story is going to be INTENSE because their origin story with their childhood was intense! It completely took my breath away and I was sobbing for Scarlett and all she had to endure. God, her life sucked! Yet… it was beautiful and precious there for awhile with Billy. I already know this is going to be one of my favorite second-chance romances, because the intensity of their connection and their story is already there. Release Date: Nov. 4, 2019

       

Moonlighter (The Company #1) by Sarina Bowen

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

This one sounds like fun! He’s a hotshot professional hockey player, separate from his brother who heads the family business – a  global security company so top-secret, he doesn’t even know the name. But the brother is smart, and taunts him with a girl he once knew, a competitive, sassy girl from his childhood, who is now in deep shit and needs his help. It sounds like he’s on bodyguard duty, and those are always a world of fun. I’m excited! Release Date: Oct. 22, 2019

 Fast Lane by Kristen Ashley

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

Fast Lane follows a band, the Roadmasters and their lead singer and songwriter Preacher McCade as they struggle through the music business, and it follows Layla, Preachers muse, love of his life and the band’s moral compass. She was along for the ride, until – the blurb makes me think – she wasn’t. The early reviews for this are absolutely amazing, and they’re saying that Kristen Ashley is trying out a new writing style, deviating from her set approach in a way that created the kind of book you can only experience once. That is high praise, and it’s brought by all those who reviewed it. The world “magnificent,” too, was thrown around. I’m definitely ordering this one. Release Date: Oct. 15, 2019

Living Canvas (Masters of Trickery #2) by Pepper Winters

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

I have to be honest, the blurb for this one is not too clear on what this one is about. But reading between the lines, I can imagine that this is a classic Pepper Winters dark erotic romance, and I’m always down for those. The title makes me think she’s a lover, and a living canvas for someone who likes to paint on flesh. An odd one, okay. But Ms. Winters has never steered me wrong before. It is the second book to The Body Painter, so I’ll have to look into that one, too. Dark romances are a rare pleasure for me, so this one is an exciting possibility. Release Date: Oct. 15, 2019

       

Wayward Son (Simon Snow #2) by Rainbow Rowell

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell was one of my favorite books – and one of the first books in my bag when I packed for college. (How do you go off to college without Fangirl?) That book is based off a girl who writes fan-fiction for one of her favorite books, Simon Snow. Well, then Ms. Rowell went back and wrote Simon Snow through the first book, Carry On and now this one. They follow Simon Snow (a bumbling Wizard who was the Chosen One against the Insidious Humdrum) and his arch-nemesis (and vampire roommate) Baz. Book two follows the duo after the events in book one, and explores the idea of what happens after the Chosen One after he saves the day? Well in Wayward Son, he can’t get off the couch. I thought Carry On was quite fun, with an amazing enemies-to-lovers trope, and am curious to see where Ms. Rowell takes this trilogy now, with two more books left to go. Release Date: Oct. 3, 2019

Runaways, Vol 4 (Runaways #4) by Rainbow Rowell

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

Ms. Rowell is an author that I’m pretty much guaranteed to love and laugh with. I love her adult contemporaries, her YA contemporaries, her YA fantasy’s, and now she has a graphic novel series?? Might as well try that one, too. This is the fourth book in the Runaways series, which follows the cast from a hit-2000’s series. I think it’s Marvel-related? I don’t know too much about this, but I am still interested in trying out this series. Release Date: Oct. 29, 2019

Rules of the Game (Love Games #2) by Winter Renshaw

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

This one sounds super fun! And, it’s available on Kindle Unlimited! Yesssss… It features a dying Nonna, whose only wish is to see her granddaughter happily settled. So the granddaughter’s brother sets her up with his best friend and the boy next door, to play her fiancee. Fake relationships are always fun to read, because they’re always fraught with unrequited feelings, repressed sexual tension and lots of fun feelings!! These kinds of stories always turn out to be entertaining 😁 Since it’s also on Kindle Unlimited for now, which means I’ll probably get to it this fall because freeeee! Release Date: Oct. 30, 2019

       

Girl at Heart by Kelly Oram

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

This one sounds very entertaining. It follows Charlie, the daughter of a Major League baseball player and the only female on her high school baseball team, truly “one of the guys.” You already know where this one is going 😉 But when her best friend and secret love of her life asks someone else to Prom, Charlie decides it’s time to quit baseball and learn how to be a girl. But with only two weeks to championships, the team can’t lose their best player, so team captain Jace makes her a deal: stay on the time, and he, who has four sisters and knows a thing or two, will teach her how to be a girl. This one sounds like an absolute scream, and I already know that Kelly Oram can write and do it well. This one is also on Kindle Unlimited, so I will definitely be picking this one up!! 😁 Release Date: Nov. 4, 2019

A Madness of Sunshine by Nalini Singh

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

This is possibly one of my most anticipated releases!! Ms. Singh is one of my absolutely most favorite of authors. She wrote the Psy-Changeling series and two contemporary series I love! She even has an urban fantasy (featuring angels) series that I haven’t gotten into yet, but this will be her first time delving into thriller and mystery territory. Based off the intricate plots in her Psy-Changeling books, I know she will be a fantastic mystery writer!!  Plus, do you know what’s better than a good thriller mystery / romantic suspense book? A small town mystery thriller / romantic suspense book! *gimme gimme gimme* Release Date: Dec. 3, 2019

Making a Play (Field Party #5) by Abbi Glines

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

I’ve been following the Field Party series since the release of the first book, Until Friday Night, in 2015 and have loved each release a little bit more as they come. The books call themselves a “southern soap opera with football, cute boys and pick-up trucks,” which is absolutely true, yet it also explores a lot of deeper issues in a really interesting way that touches really well. This book follows Ryker, who (I think) is the last of the team to find his love. But when he meets new-girl, the deaf sister of fellow football star Hunter, they have an instant connection that puzzles everyone else, a player and a deaf girl? I LOVE. I NEED. Release Date: Aug. 20, 2019

       

The Toll (Arc of a Scythe #3) by Neal Shusterman

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

I’m hyped for The Toll!! The first book, Scythereally threw me for a loop in the best way. I was absolutely not expecting how poignant it was, in between the science fiction, utopian elements and killings. It was absolutely so much fun. Dystopian books went out of style for me back in sixth grade when I read the third book of Matched, and I decided it was semi-cool again for Divergent before reverted back into my previous beliefs halfway through Allegiant (which I still have not finished today). But this brought the genre back a bit for me. Finally, one that was very well-written. Scythe features two teenagers fighting so hard for something that they don’t want, just so they can improve the system and make the world better. It’s not a selfish fight, and I love that. Now that book three is finally being released, I can go back and read book two and binge the whole series :) Release Date: Nov. 5, 2019

Steel Tide (Seafire #2) by Natalie C. Parker

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

love pirate books, and was actually thoroughly surprised by Seafire,the first book in this series! So I should preface this by saying that they don’t actually consider themselves pirates, but rather “sea rebels,” and as they live on the sea and enjoy stirring up trouble for their enemy, I’m referring to them as pirates. If you liked Daughter of the Pirate Kingyou will like these books, as they’re very similar. They feature an all-female “pirate” crew of colorful characters, take an enemy boy captive and fight against the tyrannical reign of a man who has kinged himself over the entire ocean, although the tone of each book was quite different. Seafire had a great hate-to-love friendship/romance, found families and adventure. The book’s romance was very light, almost nothing. But the flutter of feelings in the background just enhanced the story that much more. Can’t wait for the second installment of this one! Release day: Sept.x 17th, 2019. 

Promise of Darkness (Dark Courts Rising #1) by Bec McMaster

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

This one sounds very interesting!! I love a good fae fantasy romance, and this is by Ms. McMaster, the queen of steampunk, so I know this one is going to rock. The book features a war between two courts, the Queen of Thorns and Prince of Overnight. In order to uphold a treaty (and what kind of treaty is that smh), the Queen has to send one of her three daughters in the Prince’s court as a political hostage for three months. Like What? But she does it anyway, insisting it’s a great opportunity for the Princess to end the war before it began. But secrets are revealed, loyalties are questioned and it sounds like an absolutely amazing twist on the classic Hades and Persephone myth!! Gah! Sept. 19, 2019

       

Need You Now by Molly O’Keefe

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

Molly O’Keefe has delivered some sizzling dark-ish romances in the past. I say “dark-ish” because they don’t go nearly as far as what I consider “dark romances,” but it does have that same undertone and mood throughout the book that those do with deeper issues. This one sounds absolutely angsty and very intriguing. The female lead, Rosa, is the daughter of criminals and apparently went to jail so Marco, the male lead, would gain custody of their daughter. They were high school lovers and now it’s a second-chance romance, and I have many questions after reading that blurb. I can’t wait to get my hands on this one! Release Date: Sept. 9, 2019

Last Light by Claire Kent

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

I have to admit, when I read this blurb, I was so absolutely confused. So the last of the main character’s family has died and she has to make her way across the country to the last of the people she knows who are still alive, and she has to trust this not-so-trustworthy-or-friendly Travis guy to take her there. But for some reasons he has to avoid violent men who want to take what she doesn’t want to give, and salvage for food and supplies?? Then I read the bottom and realized it was a post-apocalyptic novel! That puts things in perspective and now I’m really intrigued. Release Date: Nov. 13, 2019

Disarm (The Dumonts #2) by Karina Halle

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

Disarm sounds oh-so interesting. So there’s our female lead, Seraphine, who is part of one of France’s leading dynasty’s. Then there’s Blaise, her in-name-only cousin with whom she shares a tenuous role with in the family business. He’s loved her for years (can I get a yay for unrequited love?!) and when his brother demands that he spy on Seraphine, who is getting increasingly cagey. But turns out, for good reason! Because there’s no one to trust in that family 😳🤫🤐 Karina Halle wrote Smut, a very fun romantic comedy that I thoroughly enjoyed, so I’m interested to see where she goes in this new series. This is the second book, so I’ll definitely have to check out the first book, as well. Which is great, because both books are on Kindle Unlimited!! Release Date: Nov. 19, 2019 

       

Awk-Weird (Ice Knights #2) by Avery Flynn

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

Oh look! A hockey-romance book! I love 💕 What happens when a very awkward flower shop owner goes to her best friend’s wedding rehearsal party and has a smoking hot night with a professional hockey player? Well, it’s a nice memory, that’s for sure. And one that the pink stripes on the pregnancy test will ensure she remembers forever. This one sounds like the perfect feel-good romantic comedy I want right now, and Ms. Flynn hasn’t let me down on the comedy aspect of this one. Single parenting is rough, especially between strangers. Can’t wait! Release Date: Oct. 14, 2019

Outmatched by Kristen Callihan and Samantha Young

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

A starts-as-a-fake-relationship between a boxer and a chemistry geek? Are we kidding? Yes, I want that! You’d think that you’re entering the forefront of progressive thinking when applying for a job in renewable energy, but apparently not for Parker Brown’s boss. He prefers employee’s who are “settled,” so she hires an intellectual looking for some quick cash. But instead, she get’s his protective older brother, Rhys Morgan, who shows up the same time as her boss. He’d intended to take some society girl down a peg when he arrived instead of his brother, but then the duo start working together for different opportunities: her for a job, and him for the boss’s sponsorship on the gym he’s trying to keep afloat that he inherited from his late father. But we know how them fake relationships go, eh? Eee this sounds like fun! Plus, Samantha Young is one of my favorite authors for contemporary romances, and while I’m not as familiar, Kristen Callihan doesn’t disappoint, either. YES PLEASE. Released Date: Nov. 19, 2019

Stealing Her (Covet #1) by Rachel van Dyken

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

Speaking of slam-dunk authors, Rachel van Dyken is one for sure! I’ve loved several books of hers, and this one sounds no different. This one includes a twin posing as the other for awhile to keep the family business afloat as the other twin fights to stay alive after a tragic accident. Which sounds all fine and dandy… except he has to fool his brother’s wife. Who is in love with. 🙈🙈 It sounds like an interesting one that could go either way, but Ms. van Dyken hasn’t let me down yet, and I don’t think she intends to with this one! It’s available on Kindle Unlimited, which means I hope to get to it soon 😁 Release Date: Nov. 5, 2019

       

Scales and Skeletons (Trixie Towers #2) by Scarlett Dawn

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

I haven’t read the first book in this series yet, but I absolutely adored Scarlett Dawn’s King Hall series, so hopefully I’ll feel the same about this one! The series is available on Kindle Unlimited, but I’d probably read it regardless because it sounds divine. She’s the crowned elven princess, and she “accidentally” has a soul mating with the cruel King of Shifters. Big yikes… especially because that is an expressly forbidden mating, written in the culture’s death-blood, which sounds important. I will definitely be scratching this one on my list and soon! Release Date: Oct. 2, 2019

Find Me Their Bones (Bring Me Their Hearts #2) by Sara Wolf

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

This, too, is the second book in a series that I intend to go back and read. The main character, Zera, is a heartless, meaning she’s an unageing soldier of a witch. She’s basically imprisoned to the witch Nightsinger, who keeps her heart in a jar under the witch’s control, so she will serve him without question. To win her freedom, the witch sends her on a quest: bring a Prince’s heart back in exchange for her own. But if she is discovered, her heart will be destroyed. And the prince she targets hates court life, for all the same reasons he’s so attracted to the girl who’s unafraid to speak her mind, utterly carefree and smart-mouthed. But she’s also out for his blood, and so begins, the blurb says, a game of cat and mouse between a girl with nothing to lose a boy who has it all. The winner takes the loser’s heart. Literally. Eeeeek! Release date: Nov. 5, 2019 

Archangel’s War (Guild Hunter #12) by Nalini Singh 

Check out Goodreads | Shop on Amazon

Archangel’s War is the long anticipated 12th book in the Guild Hunter series, which follows Elena, the lover of Archangel Raphael in this fantastic urban fantasy series. Now I’ll freely admit, Nalini Singh is one of my favorite authors of all time. She wrote the Psy-Changeling books, as well as two fantastic contemporary series, and this one is no different. But… I’m taking my time with it. I’m not nearly to book #12, more like I just finished book #7. So while I’m pumped Archangel’s War is out, I won’t be immediately flocking it’s way. The Guild Hunter books are absolutely amazing, don’t let me steer you wrong. But I also need breaks in between, or I’ll burn myself out on them. A great series, though, for sure! Just not ones easily binged. Release Date: Sept. 24, 2019
