September New Books Megalist

It may technically be September, but it’s still sunny and 80 degrees out here, so as far as I’m concerned, it’s still summer reading weather. And there are so many amazing books being released today that are perfect for outdoor reading! It’s an embarrassment of book riches (plus the new Ransom Riggs just came out!!!) And on this week’s episode of the All the Books! Rebecca and I talked about some more great new releases out today, such as The Story of a Brief Marriage, Mischling, and Hidden Figures.

angel catbirdThis week’s newsletter is sponsored by Angel Catbird Volume 1 by Margaret Atwood, Johnnie Christmas, and Tamara Bonvillain.

Margaret Atwood’s first original graphic novel!

Internationally best-selling and respected novelist Margaret Atwood and acclaimed artist Johnnie Christmas collaborate for one of the most highly anticipated comic book and literary events of 2016!

A young genetic engineer is accidentally mutated by his own experiment when his DNA is merged with that of a cat and an owl. What follows is a humorous, action-driven, pulp-inspired superhero adventure—with a lot of cat puns.

Features bonus content by David Mack, Matt Kindt, Tyler Crook, and more!
