13 New Upcoming Books In September 2020 You Need to Read

 

September is just around the corner, folks and you know what that means. It means that we have a bunch of new upcoming books in September coming our way, to read and savor.

I must say, after switching to paperbacks a few weeks back, I have to admit, I have been reading more than when I was reading on Kindle. It’s absolutely crazy how quickly I go through books these days once I made the switch. As fancy and convenient reading on an e-reader sounds, at the end of the day––at least personally––I think it still can’t beat the feeling and smell of a book in my hands.

And yes, while paperbacks are more expensive than ebooks, for me, it seems to be a fair trade so long as I could get back into reading again. Your girl never again want to feel that despair of not being able to pick up or even desire to read a book for 6 months straight. For a book lover, there really is no hell crueler than that.

I just wanted to share what worked for me, especially if there are readers out there who are going through a reading slump as well. Try changing the medium with which you read your books, as that worked quite well for me. With that said, I think I have ranted long enough by now. Let us get started on the list of books coming in September that you should add to you to-read list.

Lesson One of the Scholomance

Learning has never been this deadly

A Deadly Education is set at Scholomance, a school for the magically gifted where failure means certain death (for real) — until one girl, El, begins to unlock its many secrets. There are no teachers, no holidays, and no friendships, save strategic ones. Survival is more important than any letter grade, for the school won’t allow its students to leave until they graduate… or die! The rules are deceptively simple: Don’t walk the halls alone. And beware of the monsters who lurk everywhere. El is uniquely prepared for the school’s dangers. She may be without allies, but she possesses a dark power strong enough to level mountains and wipe out millions. It would be easy enough for El to defeat the monsters that prowl the school. The problem? Her powerful dark magic might also kill all the other students.

But Sydney and Theo’s deep dive into history quickly becomes a dizzying descent into paranoia and fear. Their neighbors may not have moved to the suburbs after all, and the push to revitalize the community may be more deadly than advertised.

When does coincidence become conspiracy? Where do people go when gentrification pushes them out? Can Sydney and Theo trust each other—or themselves—long enough to find out before they too disappear?
