I feel like I should have a lot more on pre-order but the truth is, it’s getting really hard to tell what I’m going to want to read or not. I’ve been so much picky lately with my books since I got burned quite a bit with other pre-orders, but lately, I’ve been finding some deals and some good coupons for pre-orders, so of course, you know this girl was all over them. AND WHAT IS WITH LITERALLY ALMOST ALL OF THESE BOOKS COMING OUT IN SEPTEMBER????? I’m going to have like ten million books on my doorstep this month apparently. Shall we check below to see what struck this princess’s fancy?
Cassidy Blake’s parents are The Inspectres, a (somewhat inept) ghost-hunting team. But Cass herself can REALLY see ghosts. In fact, her best friend, Jacob, just happens to be one.
When The Inspectres head to ultra-haunted Edinburgh, Scotland, for their new TV show, Cass—and Jacob—come along. In Scotland, Cass is surrounded by ghosts, not all of them friendly. Then she meets Lara, a girl who can also see the dead. But Lara tells Cassidy that as an In-betweener, their job is to send ghosts permanently beyond the Veil. Cass isn’t sure about her new mission, but she does know the sinister Red Raven haunting the city doesn’t belong in her world. Cassidy’s powers will draw her into an epic fight that stretches through the worlds of the living and the dead, in order to save herself.
I CANNOT WAIT I CANNOT WAIT I CANNOT WAIT I CANNOT WAIT I CANNOT WAIT I CANNOT WAIT I CANNOT WAIT I CANNOT WAIT I CANNOT WAIT. Victoria Schwab + ghosts + ghost hunting show + Scotland = Mandy will be in book heaven and I CLEARLY CANNOT WAIT.

Determined to put a stop to Hideo’s grim plans, Emika and the Phoenix Riders band together, only to find a new threat lurking on the neon-lit streets of Tokyo.

But Emika soon learns that Zero isn’t all that he seems–and his protection comes at a price.
Caught in a web of betrayal, with the future of free will at risk, just how far will Emika go to take down the man she loves?
Okay, I’m not super crazy about this cover, but I seriously can’t wait for the sequel to Warcross. I totally thought I was not going to be a fan of the first novel, but Lu pulled out some major epicness and made me a gaming believer. The more I think about this novel, the more I realize just how epic Warcross is and how much I can’t wait for another part! I AM READY FOR THE REMATCH.
A contemporary adventure based on Maya mythology from Rick Riordan Presents!
Zane has always enjoyed exploring the dormant volcano near his home in New Mexico, even though hiking it is challenging. He’d much rather hang out there with his dog, Rosie, than go to middle school, where kids call him Sir Limps a Lot, McGimpster, or Uno—for his one good leg. What Zane doesn’t know is that the volcano is a gateway to another world and he is at the center of a powerful prophecy. A new girl at school, Brooks, informs him that he’s destined to release an evil god from the ancient Maya relic he is imprisoned in—unless she can find and remove it first. Together they return to the volcano, where all kinds of crazy happens. Brooks turns into a hawk, a demon attacks them in a cave, and Rosie gives her all while trying to protect Zane. When Zane decides to save his dog no matter the cost, he is thrust into an adventure full of surprising discoveries, dangerous secrets, and an all-out war between the gods, one of whom happens to be his father. To survive, Zane will have to become the Storm Runner. But how can he run when he can’t even walk well without a cane?
Feisty heroes, tricky gods, murderous demons, and spirited giants are just some of the pleasures that await in this fresh and funny take on Maya mythology, as rich and delicious as a mug of authentic hot chocolate.
Well, obviously I’m a certified Riordan fangirl, and I’m all about the mythology books. I’m so excited that Disney gave him his own imprint to showcase even more amazing mythology books. I’m so so so geeked for this one. With one of those ancestry places, my dad recently found out that our Mexican heritage is a bit more from the Mayan side than we ever thought. Therefore, I cannot wait to dive more into this mythology and this sounds like it’s going to be amazing especially with the disabled rep.
There are no more cheerleaders in the town of Sunnybrook.
First there was the car accident—two girls gone after hitting a tree on a rainy night. Not long after, the murders happened. Those two girls were killed by the man next door. The police shot him, so no one will ever know why he did it. Monica’s sister was the last cheerleader to die. After her suicide, Sunnybrook High disbanded the cheer squad. No one wanted to be reminded of the girls they lost.
That was five years ago. Now the faculty and students at Sunnybrook High want to remember the lost cheerleaders. But for Monica, it’s not that easy. She just wants to forget. Only, Monica’s world is starting to unravel. There are the letters in her stepdad’s desk, an unearthed, years-old cell phone, a strange new friend at school. . . . Whatever happened five years ago isn’t over. Some people in town know more than they’re saying. And somehow Monica is at the center of it all.
There are no more cheerleaders in Sunnybrook, but that doesn’t mean anyone else is safe.
Sha and I have hyped this book up so much, but I’ve absolutely loved Kara Thomas’s previous two books, so I simply cannot wait for this one. Fingers crossed this is brilliance!
In small town Michigan, Penny, an aspiring journalist, teams up with the nerdy boy-next-door and the town’s star quarterback to find her conspiracy theorist father after he goes missing and several other townspeople turn up dead in the woods.
The deeper she digs, the weirder things start to get. Townspeople repeat the same phrases—verbatim. Men in black suits stroll around Main Street. Chunks of her memory go missing. Pretty soon, Penny’s research leads her to the long-ago meteorite crash in Bone Lake’s woods, and she’s going to have to reconsider her definition of “real” if she wants answers.. . .
Lol, is there a more me book than this book? Well, if only it had some Bigfoot in there and then it would be all good. Sam @ We Live and Breathe Books super recced this one for me, so I was sold enough to preorder it besides just fangirling from afar.
Phoebe Lane is a lightning rod for monsters.
She and her mom are forced to flee flesh-eating plants, radioactive ants, and blobs from outer space. They survive thanks to Phoebe’s dad—an invisible titan, whose giant eyes warn them where the next monster attack will take place.
All Phoebe wants is to stop running from motel to motel and start living a monster-free life in New York or Paris. But when her mom mysteriously vanishes, Phoebe is left to fend for herself in small-town Pennybrooke.
That’s when Phoebe starts to transform…
Christian McKay Heidicker, author of Cure for the Common Universe, returns with a book unlike any other, challenging perceived notions of beauty, identity, and what it means to be a monster.
And concludes my I’m Going to Be Broke in September month. This has Godzilla references. I repeat Godzilla references. And it sounds like so much fun and I just need this to be amazing.
