Vanessa Di Gregorio

    I just spent $70 on books from this post alone. Curse you, Vanessa! There are so many that look so, sooooooo good!

      Mwahahaha! Excellent.

      If it makes you feel better, I am also now down a whole lot of money because I put this post together. AND I have no space for them in my house!

    Sky Jumpers by Peggy Eddleman (MG dystopian) also comes out on the 24th from Random House.

    • Vanessa Di Gregorio Sep 3 2013 at 1:43 pm #

      AHHH! How did I miss that one? It sounds so good – and that cover! Thanks 🙂

  3. Natalie Aguirre Sep 2 2013 at 7:55 am #

    So many great books. I loved All Our Yesterdays, Scorched, The Dream Thieves, and Sky Jumpers.

  4. jen mcandrews Sep 2 2013 at 8:12 am #

    So many of these books are already on my buy list but the book I’ve most looked forward to is Elizabeth Wein’s ROSE UNDER FIRE

    • Vanessa Di Gregorio Sep 3 2013 at 1:46 pm #

      I can’t believe I didn’t realize that I missed a new Elizabeth Wein book! CODE NAME VERITY was definitely a PC group fave. Thanks!

    YAY for September releases!!!!

    Canvas Bound (Book 1 in the Captive Art series) by Laura M. Kolar comes out tomorrow (Sept 3)!!

    Looks like dystopia is making a comeback. Wondering if any of these are indie….

    • Vanessa Di Gregorio Sep 3 2013 at 1:47 pm #

      Yeah, I have a feeling dystopia is going to stick around for quite some time still. And the Fall season is a good time for them to be coming out, which might be why this list is full of them!

  7. Katherine S Sep 2 2013 at 10:26 am #

    I’ve had the chance to read an ARC of 3:59 by Gretchen McNeil and its full of suspense. I want everyone of those books on my shelf!

  8. Kendall Sep 2 2013 at 11:06 am #

    I love these posts! So great to see what’s coming out!

    • Vanessa Di Gregorio Sep 3 2013 at 2:01 pm #

      Yay, thanks! I love putting them together. (And hate it, cause then I realize just how many awesome books I need to buy, and my to-read pile ends up growing by leaps and bounds!)

  9. Aubrey Cann Sep 2 2013 at 11:41 am #

    Thanks for posting this! It’s always so helpful when you do a roundup of everything coming out.

    • Vanessa Di Gregorio Sep 3 2013 at 2:03 pm #

      Hurrah! I’m so glad it’s helpful to others as well! I sometimes feel like I’m in a bubble, and don’t know about any books coming out except from the publishers I rep. So these roundups are such a great way for me to see what else is out there!

  10. Feliza Sep 2 2013 at 12:29 pm #

    So many things to look forward to in September! I’m definitely ready for ONCE WE WERE, and I have been ready for BATTLE MAGIC since I read THE WILL OF THE EMPRESS back in 2005.

  11. Julie Eshbaugh Sep 2 2013 at 12:39 pm #

    Vanessa, this is a great round-up! Of course, I can’t wait for ONCE WE WERE and PHOENIX OVERTURE :). I’m also looking forward to checking out THE TRUTH ABOUT YOU AND ME, FANGIRL, and THE FALCONER (among other – this is a really compelling list!)

    • Vanessa Di Gregorio Sep 3 2013 at 2:08 pm #

      Thanks Julie! 😀

      I read FANGIRL and I loved it! Rainbow Rowell can do no wrong!

  12. Krispy Sep 2 2013 at 8:19 pm #

    I’m going to go so broke from all the bookish goodness that will be out in December. Aaaah!

    • Krispy Sep 2 2013 at 8:20 pm #

      And by December, I actually mean September – though I will probably also be going broke in December thanks to the holidays…

      • Vanessa Di Gregorio Sep 3 2013 at 2:11 pm #

        I think Sept through Dec = money being spent nonstop! And now that it’s fall, there are going to be SO MANY BOOKS!

  13. Kim Sep 2 2013 at 9:58 pm #

    So many books to be excited about!

  14. Heather @ Buried in Sep 8 2013 at 5:55 pm #

    The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White comes out on the 10th published by HarperTeen.

    And FANGIRL by Rainbow Rowell- AMAZING!!
