New Books

First Tuesday in September New Books Megalist!

It’s time for fall reading, that glorious time of the year where the air gets a bit chilly, the blankets get a bit thicker, and the new book releases become more plentiful! It’s the first Tuesday of the month, which means there are a bunch of new titles out today. I’ve got a big list for you below, and you can hear about a few of these books on this week’s episode of the All the Books! Rebecca and I talked about amazing books we loved, such as Sing, Unburied, Sing, Sourdough, and They Both Die at the End.

Sponsored by Gambler’s Anatomy by Jonathan Lethem, new in paperback.

A devilishly entertaining novel about an international backgammon hustler who thinks he’s psychic–from the author of Motherless Brooklyn and The Fortress of Solitude. Alexander Bruno travels the world playing high stakes backgammon and hunting for amateur “whales” who think they can challenge him. Lately he’s had a run of bad luck. Out of money and friends, he turns to the only person who can help (and the last person he wants to see): a high-rolling former childhood acquaintance. Forced to confront his uncertain future, he must ask himself: Is he playing the game, or is the game playing him?

(And like last time, I’m putting a ❤️ next to the books that I have read and loved. There are soooo many more on this list that I can’t wait to read!)
