Autumn winds begin to blow,
colored leaves fall fast and slow.
Whirling, twirling all around,
I don’t see any of that though because I’m inside.

Okay, the rhyme didn’t quite work out at the end there, but this is still my favorite time of the year for reading! September is always a good time to get comfortable with a good book and this September offers plenty of books that are worth reading!

Lost in Time by A.G. Riddle looks like a ton of fun. What if you got sentenced for a crime, but you went to the time of dinosaurs instead of jail? It sounds scary, but also kind of awesome. Can’t wait to see what the author does with that concept. Another good book this month is Gallows Hill by Darcy Coates. I love a good haunted house mystery, especially at this time of the year, and this looks to be exactly my type!

We also have a new James Patterson (with Brendan DuBois) called Blowback which follows a President that tries to take his power too far. I’m not a very political person, but it’s definitely an intriguing premise. The same can be said about Suspect by Scott Turow which sees a female police chief being falsely accused of acts she didn’t commit in an effort to strip her power.

There is a new series from Amanda Flower about Emily Dickinson solving crimes this month, hot new romance from Jasmine Guillory, new Stephen King, and much more.

Let’s take a look at the best upcoming books of September 2022.
