New Books

First Tuesday of September Megalist!

Hold on to your pumpkin spice-flavored hats – here comes fall reading! The season is kicking off with an AMAZING number of great books this first Tuesday new release day, and I can’t wait for you to see the big list below. Two words: WOW. ZA.

Sponsored by LITTLE COMFORT by Edwin Hill

Follow a brilliant amateur investigator as she unravels the truth behind two grifters preying on Boston’s elite—perfect for fans of The Talented Mr. Ripley.

You can hear about several of today’s new books on this week’s episode of the All the Books! María Cristina and I talked about a few amazing books we loved, including Small Fry, Cats vs. Robots, Terra Nullius, and more.

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

Oh, and don’t forget that Book Riot wants to hear about the ins-n-outs of your reading life – come share them with us in our Fall Reader Survey!
