Grumpy Book Grrrl

a writer and reader

Lots of books to look forward to this month! It’s a good month for new urban fantasy.

September 5: The Brightest Fell (Toby Daye #11) by Seanan McGuire


This is my favorite series ever! I was lucky enough to get an ARC for this. You can read my review here. It’s spoiler free. It wasn’t the best book in the series, but it was pivotal in setting up the endgame. If you are a fan of the series you will be thrilled to know that Amandine finally makes an appearance!

September 5: Dead Woman Walking by Sharon Bolton


This is a standalone mystery. I’ve read several books by this author and really liked them. They usually have a dark edge.

September 12: Volatile Bonds (Prospero’s War #4) by Jaye Wells


I only read the first book in the series. It was really good. I got sidetracked at the time and never continued the series. It is something I’ll get back to at some point.

September 12: The Outskirts (The Outskirts Duet #1) by T.M. Frazier


T.M. Frazier’s books are hit or miss with me. I’ve really enjoyed some of them so I’ll probably give this a whirl.

September 13: Edge of Forever (Soul Eater #6) Pippa DaCosta


This series is amazing! I can’t wait to see how it ends. It’s rare to find to find urban fantasies that are original with fascinating characters.

September 19: The Queen (Masterpiece Duet #2) by Skye Warren


I haven’t read the first book in the duet. Her books tend to be dark. Some are better than others but they’re always good.

September 19: Born, Darkly (Darkly, Madly Duet #1) by Trisha Wolfe


I’ve never read anything by this author, but it sounds interesting. I’m always down for a good dark romantic suspense novel.

September 26: Archangel’s Viper (Guild Hunter #10) by Nalini Singh


I love this series! The books from Elena’s POV are usually better, but I am excited to learn more about Viper.

September 26: The Hunt (Devil’s Isle #3) by Chloe Neill


I’ve been hesitant to read this series because of the Chicagoland Vampires series. That series went downhill quickly. I’m afraid this will be the same. One of these days I will check it out.

September 26: An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson


I’m not a big fan of young adult novels, but this is about fairies. I love books about fairies because they can be extremely manipulative. Early reviews have been overwhelmingly positive.

  2. Is it bad that I’m glad someone else thinks the Chicagoland Vampire series plummeted down the mountainside? SO tired of the will they? Won’t they? (Or just tired of their relationship drama altogether.) And I was SO frustrated that they ruined the amazing BFF thing with Mallory. (That might get better but I gave up on book 6 or 7, I can’t remember.)

    1. You made it farther than me. I gave up after book 5. I hated the relationship drama! I loved Ethan, but Merit started showing interest in some other guy. It annoyed me that Merit was so special. She was always the one to save the day, which was ridiculous considering the vampires she worked with were really old. They should have been far more capable than she was. – Kira

      1. I would definitely agree with that statement. I also found it hard to believe that some of these ancient vampires would be so insecure. I liked Ethan but his wishy washy bullshit got old too lol. I was so happy to find a book with a strong female friendship and then they crushed it, along with my interest.


      2. I made it to book 11 or 12, but by then, i was rage-reviewing them. I kept hoping… hoping… it would get better. 😦 But no. – Shelly

      3. Guess I picked a good place to give up then lol.
