Fall 2015 Book Picks!

Well, Summer is wrapping up and kids are getting ready to head back to school! While I’m sure many parents and teachers will be hearing moans and groans for the next few weeks, I’ll be doing a happy dance and cheering! Why you may ask? Because going back to school is a sure sign that Fall is coming!!! Cozy sweaters, hot apple cider, beautiful scenery, crisp air, there are so many reasons why Fall is my favourite season! The coming of September also means a whole new publishing season! Yay for new books! I’ve been scoping out the Fall publishing schedule for September/October, and have been eagerly making lists of all the books that I want to get my hands on. Here are a few of the YA and Adult Fiction titles that I’m most looking forward to! I’ve ordered them by publication date.

September 8th, 2015
Andrew Smith’s book, Winger, was one of my favourite reads in 2014! It was funny, insightful, and made me bawl like the biggest baby on earth at the end! I never in my wildest dreams expected Smith to write a sequel, but he has! Stand-Off continues where Winger left off, and I’m really curious to see how the characters deal with the tragedy they’ve witnessed and the sense of loss I’m sure they’ll all be facing.

Avelynn by Marissa Campbell
September 8th, 2015
I’m addicted to the Vikings TV show, so when I found out that Avelynn is a love story between a Saxon woman and a Viking beserker, I was immediately intrigued! Hopefully it will help keep me occupied until the next season of Vikings airs on TV!

saga

Saga: Volume 5 by Brian K. Vaughan, Illustrated by Fiona Staples
September 9th, 2015
Hands down this is the publication that I’m looking forward to the most! Saga is a fantastic graphic novel series, and if you haven’t checked it out yet, then I highly suggest that you do! I am so addicted to this series that I actually started subscribing to the monthly issues at my local comic book store! Unfortunately, I fell behind in my reading after my big move, and Saga comics seem to sell out so fast that I never managed to find any copies to help me catch up! I can’t wait to find out what all of my favourite characters have been up to!

jey

The Thing About Jellyfish by Ali Benjamin
September 22nd, 2015
I’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about this book, and the synopsis definitely sounds promising! The story focuses on Suzy as she deals with the loss of her best friend after a tragic drowning accident. Suzy is convinced that the real cause of her friend’s death was a rare jellyfish sting, and crafts a plan to prove that her theory is true. I was lucky enough to get an Advanced Reading Copy of this one, so I’m going to be diving into it pretty soon!

after

After you by Jojo Moyes
September 29th, 2015
In 2012 Jojo Moyes took the world by storm with her heartbreaking story, Me Before You. As you can probably guess, Me Before You was a real tear-jerker, but I’m hopeful that After You will have a  bit of a happier ending! The story focuses on Lou as she deals with her loss, starts her journey of healing, and maybe even falls in love!

crows

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
September 29th, 2015
The author of the bestselling Grisha trilogy is coming out with a new series! Woohoo!! Like Shadow and Bone, Six of Crows takes place in fantasy type realm, and focuses on six outcasts coming together to pull off an impossible heist. I can’t resist a good heist story, and I’m eager to see how Six of Crows will hold up against Shadow and Bone!

The Aernaut’s Windlass by Jim Butcher
September 29th, 2015
In the Urban Fantasy world, Jim Butcher is a pretty big name. I’ve tried to get into his Dresden Files series, but it just wasn’t for me. I’m willing to give him another shot though with his newest series that’s coming out this Fall! It sounds like it will be full of some fantastic swashbuckling action!

atwodo

The Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood
September 29th, 2015
A new Atwood!!! Living in their car, Charmaine and Stan see an advertisement for a social experiment that promises a stable job and home. All they have to do in return is give up their freedom every second month, and live in a prison cell. I’m really intrigued by this plot-line, and can’t wait to see what Atwood has up her sleeve!

ghostly

Ghostly: A Collection of Ghost Stories Edited by Audrey Niffenegger
September 29th, 2015
I love a good ghost story! Especially on a dark and stormy Fall night! This anthology of classic and contemporary ghost stories from beloved authors like Ray Bradbury, Neil Gaiman, and Edgar Allan Poe is sure to be full of thrills and chills! I can’t wait to dig into it!

carry on

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
October 6th, 2015
Need I explain? It’s Rainbow Rowell for goodness sakes! I’m especially excited by the fact that Carry On is based on a fanfiction written by one of Rowell’s characters from her novel Fangirl! I’m curious to see how Carry On will stand alone as it’s own book!

slade

Slade House by David Mitchell
October 27th, 2015
Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell is one of my all-time favourite books! It is so beautifully written! I’ve been meaning to pick up more books by him for ages, but I haven’t gotten around to it yet! Slade House might just be the perfect book by him to check out next! A short story spanning across five decades, the synopsis promises that it is the perfect book to curl up with on a dark and stormy night (and you know how much I LOVE those!).

Wow! Apparently September 29th is going to be a big day for book releases! And looking at my list I’ve just realized that a lot of these upcoming books deal with death or grieving. Guess I better stock up on some Kleenex ASAP!  What Fall books are you eagerly waiting to get your hands on? Share your Fall picks in the comments below!

  1. Oh wow, so many new books! I too love Fall for the same reasons you do- especially the Fall publishing schedule!

    I haven’t been reading new books as much lately so some of these sound so interesting! I can’t wait to add them to my TBR pile and get my hands on them soon.

    Btw, what’s the Vikings tv show? Is it fiction or is it a documentary?

  2. Ahhh… After You! I’m trying to keep my expectations moderate because I don’t think there’s any way to top Me Before You, but I CAN’T WAIT!
    Great post :)!!
