Hot Off the Press: September 15, 2015 Releases

09152015

I missed the first couple weeks of September, but I’m back in business. Here are two books I want to buy/check out today.

First up, Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy. I can’t remember how I found out about this book – probably a preview post over at Book Riot – but man, this book sounds a-freaking-mazing. The protagonist, an overweight Texas teen named, I kid you not, Willowdean Dickson, is a confident young woman with body confidence in spades (“Her thoughts on having the ultimate bikini body? Put a bikini on your body.”). Things take a turn when Willowdean discovers that her hunky crush also likes her, and her self-esteem takes a bit of dive. So Willowdean does what any plucky young girl would in her position: compete in pageant to challenge expectations (including her own).  It sounds like the awesomeness of Fat Amy mixed with the aw, shucks of Amber Atkins.

Lauren Groff’s Fates and Furies is…different. I’ve seen this one on many lists and it’s been featured pretty heavily in social media – another big win for Riverhead Books, which is killing it this year. Fates and Furies sounds like The Interestings, but quieter and more intimate. The book focuses on one couple’s relationship, as husband and wife and creative partners. It promises to examine the complexities of these relationships over time, revealing secrets and many layers.

I’m sure there are plenty of other books being published today, so don’t forget to post your favorite ones in the comments!

What are you excited to check out today?

    Girl Waits With Gun by Amy Stewart. Although it was released in August, Voices in the Ocean: A Journey into the Wild and Haunting World of Dolphins by Susan Casey–loved The Wave.X by Sue Grafton–24th in the Kinsey Milhone series. The Girl in the Spider’s Web by David Lagercrantz–having LOVED the Millennium series by Stieg Larsson I am super-anxious to see how Lagercrantz did with continuing this series. My husband read it and thought he did a great job… I know there are more, but I’ll leave it at this! 🙂
