Well hello there! It's time for the 2015 edition of Fall Releases I Need to Read. I actually considered skipping this year's post because I felt like the list was a little shorter than in the previous two years, but this post has sort of become an annual thing for me, and in the end, a sense of continuing tradition won out. Plus, I NEEDED to highlight Queen of Shadows, which releases today!
Queen of Shadows (Throne of Glass #4) by Sarah J. Maas
Publication Date: September 1 (TODAY!!!)
GAHHHHHH!!!!! I don't know if I'm ready for this. I mean, I just have to think about last year's Heir of Fire to summon the torrent of feelings I had at the end of it. Um, has anyone preemptively formed a post-QoS support group yet? If so, please sign me up now.
Avatar: The Last Airbender: Smoke and Shadow, Part 1
by Gene Luen Yang
Publication Date: October 6
ZUKO!!!!! I've loved both Avatar graphic novels I've read so far, and I expect to feel the same about this one! I'll probably end up waiting until all three parts are published in a hardcover edition, though, to match the versions I already own. But I HAD to include Part 1 of Smoke and Shadow here!
Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink by Elvis Costello
Publication Date: October 13
I rarely read nonfiction, but as a HUGE Elvis fan, of course I need to read his memoir. I'm eagerly anticipating reading this not just because it's EC, but because he's a fantastic storyteller in concert. Also, when Rhino Records reissued a chunk of his back catalog a while back, Elvis penned new liner notes, and they were absolutely absorbing to read.
Manners and Mutiny (Finishing School #4) by Gail Carriger
Publication Date: November 3
This is such a fun series set in a world that I adore. As much as I want to see how the series concludes, I'm also sad to see Sophronia's adventures come to an end.
Are there any other upcoming fall releases that you think I should add to my list?
