Hey there! So September is now upon us which means that lots of folx are headed back to school or back to work from vacation but it also means a whole lot of new Books are dropping! This month has a CRAZY amount coming out and I imagine that my fellow bookworms will be keeping our favorite bookstores and libraries super busy (Nobody come for me about your bank accounts, talk to the publishers, lol)!

I think I know several people that is going to look like this, lol!

Since this list is INSANELY long, I’m just going to get right to it. Though I quickly want to remind you that you should always double check pub dates because they are always subject to change (supply chains and publishers love to play in our faces at times)! Okay, now to this list!
