Fall 2015 Releases I Need to Read

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?


  1. LEE! You're trying to kill me here^^ Queen of Shadows AND Smoke and Shadow!!!!!! OMG.OMG.OMG.OMG!!!
    YES, sign me up to the QoS support group as well. I'm NOT ready but at the same time, I don't think I can wait another second. We're going to suffer, but we're going to be happy about it. LOL XD And well, learning more about my beloved ZUKO is pretty much all I can think about now...well, that and QoS ;)

    I still need to get into the Finishing School books but I always get really excited when a new one comes out - I feel like I've been subtly stalking the series from the start. Or, not so subtly. LOL And I know how much you love EC so I'm excited for you to get to fangirl about him some more XD Happy reading Lee ♥

    1. You're welcome for the back-to-back Celaena/Zuko awesomeness! XD

      "We're going to suffer, but we're going to be happy about it." BAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! So true! I'll see you at the QoS support group soon! XD

  2. Maas and Carriger for sure!

    I wonder is QoS is where Celaena's gonna go full on Denaerys...

    1. OMG, that would be amazing! Celaena could TOTALLY rain down fire everywhere!

  3. I NEED to get on the Throne of Glass series. I swear I'm the only one on the planet who hasn't experienced it yet -_-

  4. I have Queen of Shadows!! I'm rereading and on the second one now because I read so fast I forgot to write reviews LOL!

    1. LOL! Rereading the series must be awesome- it's a little hard for me to believe that we're on the 4th book already!

  5. Eep, I'm just starting Queen of Shadows, and I'll be sure to come flail to you once I finish, since I'm sure we could both do with the support. :D I can't wait to really dive in this weekend though - it's going to be so good! Ah, and Manners and Mutiny is already coming out soon! I need to get on with finishing the series!

    1. All of the QoS love I've seen around the blogosphere this week has been amazing! Unfortunately, I have to hold off starting because I'm taking a test in 2 weeks that I need to study for. :'( But, once that's done, I'm doing NOTHING but reading QoS!
