The Heroine's September 2012 Reads

I didn't read a lot in September. I'm in the revision process with KIN and family came to visit us so we had a week of "staycation" mixed in there. So here are my reads! I'm hoping there will be a nice pile of additions next months. Once I'm finished with my revision, my reward is taking a few days to catch up on fun reading before hopping into my next project. Not sure if it will involve getting ready for NaNoWriMo or jumping into another project revision.

September Reads! 
The Diviners by Libba Bray
One of the reasons I didn't read that many books is the thickness of this book! And it isn't a bad thing. You know how you don't want a book to end? This is one of them since it filled with so many details of a different time mixed creepiness and a mystery. I couldn't have asked for a better fall book and totally recommend it as a read for October. I was able to snag an ARC at ALA from the author and took a look at the hardcover at a convention and bookstore this weekend. I weighed it in my hands, and when I opened it, it was more fabulous with the chapter illustrations and "newspaper clipping" from an event featured in the book. I'm thinking I might have to pass along my signed ARC to a school and buy the book in hardcover--- that is how much I enjoyed it!

Shadowfell by Juliet Marillier
This author is one of my favorites and I was looking forward to her latest YA series. I loved Wildwood Dancing and Cybele's Secret so very much, especially the artwork. This book is much quieter than her others, but it is the first in a trilogy. Marillier writes relationships in such a subtle and beautiful way by building them slowly after a strong connection. She doesn't fail doing it again in this book. It is the start of a journey, and I'm looking forward to more action in the next installments. Her next book is the sixth installment of her first adult Sevenwaters series, Flame of Sevenwaters, comes out in November.

For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund
I love her unicorn killer series and I finally bought this book. So very excited to read this!

What books are you planning on reading this fall?
