September TBR – Book Tour edition

So every so often I make a list of books that I really want to finish in a month. Usually they’re like 40+ and I hardly ever read them all. It’s like I can’t stand some of them and then I put myself in a bad spot.

Well, this last month I’ve DNFed like 10 books and its been so much fun. I’ve read 217 books this year and I don’t need to race against the clock to finish 300 for the year.

But here is my booklist for September, based on just the tours I’m going to be a part of!

Let me know if you’re on any of these tours with me!

The Dragons Promise by Elizabeth Lim – 4th September

Is there someone who wouldn’t want to be on tour for this book? Six Crimson Cranes was a wonderful book, the kind that we don’t get often so I’m really excited about the sequel!

I’m on tour for this with TBR and Beyond Tours, who always supply me with fantastic YA reads!

I’m going to be posting my review for this on the 4th of September!

Blurb:

Princess Shiori made a deathbed promise to return the dragon’s pearl to its rightful owner, but keeping that promise is more dangerous than she ever imagined.

She must journey to the kingdom of dragons, navigate political intrigue among humans and dragons alike, fend off thieves who covet the pearl for themselves and will go to any lengths to get it, all while cultivating the appearance of a perfect princess to dissuade those who would see her burned at the stake for the magic that runs in her blood.

The pearl itself is no ordinary cargo; it thrums with malevolent power, jumping to Shiori’s aid one minute, and betraying her the next—threatening to shatter her family and sever the thread of fate that binds her to her true love, Takkan. It will take every ounce of strength Shiori can muster to defend the life and the love she’s fought so hard to win. 

The Last Book You’ll Ever Read by Cullen Bunn – 5th September

I love being on a tour with Rockstar Book Tours! It was the first place I ever did a book tour with and we always have a great giveaway!

Blurb:

Civilization is a lie. Hidden deep in our genes is the truth. And it is slowly clawing its way to the surface. Olivia Kade knows the truth, and she has become the prophet of the coming collapse. Her book, SATYR, is an international bestseller, and it is being blamed for acts of senseless violence and bloodshed all over the world. Olivia’s own life is in danger from those who have read her work. Determined to conduct a book tour, she hires security professional Connor Wilson to act as her bodyguard. She only has one requirement: he cannot read her work.

Lessons by Ian McEwan – 14th September

Random Things Tours has given some of my favourite books, so how could I not sign up for a tour with them!

Blurb:

While the world is still counting the cost of the Second World War and the Iron Curtain has descended, young Roland Baines’s life is turned upside down. Stranded at boarding school, his vulnerability attracts his piano teacher, Miriam Cornell, leaving scars as well as a memory of love that will never fade.

Twenty-five years later, as the radiation from the Chernobyl disaster spreads across Europe, Roland’s wife mysteriously vanishes and he is forced to confront the reality of his rootless existence and look for answers in his family history.

From the fall of the Berlin Wall to the Covid pandemic and climate change, Roland sometimes rides with the tide of history but more often struggles against it. Haunted by lost opportunities, he seeks solace through every possible means ­- literature, travel, friendship, drugs, politics, sex and love.

His journey raises important questions. Can we take full charge of the course of our lives without damage to others? How do global events beyond our control shape us and our memories? What role do chance and contingency play in our existence? And what can we learn from the traumas of the past? contingency play in our existence? And what can we learn from the traumas of the past?

The House with the Golden Door by Elodie Harper – 14th September

This is my first tour with Turn the Page Tours and I’m fairly excited! I’m currently reading The Wolf Den, which I picked up because it falls under the ancient Greece category, which is my favourite thing!

Blurb:

Amara has escaped her life as a slave in the Wolf Den, the city’s most notorious brothel, but now her survival depends on the affections of her patron: a man she might not know as well as she once thought. At night in the home he bought for her, the house with the golden door, Amara’s dreams are haunted by her past. She longs for her sisterhood of friends—the women at the brothel she was forced to leave behind—and worse, finds herself pursued by the cruel and vindictive man who once owned her. To be truly free, she will need to be as ruthless as he is. Amara knows her existence in Pompeii is subject to Venus, the goddess of love. Yet finding love may prove to be the most dangerous act of all. This is the second installment in Elodie Harper’s acclaimed Wolf Den Trilogy, which reimagines the lives of women long overlooked.

The Killing Code by Ellie Marney – 22nd September

This is also a tour with TBR and Beyond Tours!

Blurb:

Virginia, 1943: World War II is raging in Europe and on the Pacific front when Kit Sutherland is recruited to help the war effort as a codebreaker at Arlington Hall, a former girls’ college now serving as the site of a secret US Signal Intelligence facility. But Kit is soon involved in another kind of fight: government girls are being brutally murdered in Washington DC, and when Kit stumbles onto a bloody homicide scene, she is drawn into the hunt for the killer.
 
To find the man responsible for the gruesome murders and bring him to justice, Kit joins forces with other female codebreakers at Arlington Hall—gossip queen Dottie Crockford, sharp-tongued intelligence maven Moya Kershaw, and cleverly resourceful Violet DuLac from the segregated codebreaking unit. But as the girls begin to work together and develop friendships—and romance—that they never expected, two things begin to come clear: the murderer they’re hunting is closing in on them…and Kit is hiding a dangerous secret.

Lord of the Fly Fest by Goldy Moldavsky – 23rd September

So is it a bit obvious that I really like TBR and Beyond Tours?

Blurb:

Rafi Francisco needs a splashy case to put her true crime podcast on the map. She sets her sights on River Stone, the hearthrob musician who rose to stardom after the mysterious disappearance of his girlfriend. Rafi somehow scores a ticket to the exclusive Fly Fest, where River will be the headliner—and her starmaking interview.

But when Rafi arrives on the Caribbean island location of Fly Fest with hundreds of other influencers, they quickly discover that the promised dream getaway is more of a nightmare. Soon, Rafi goes from fighting for an interview to fighting for her life as she has to confront beauty gurus—gone—wild and spotty WiFi. And, as she gets closer to River, she discovers that he might be hiding even darker secrets than she suspected.

I’ve done tours with over 30 book tour organisers and I’m so excited to be on tour with some of my favourite ones in September! To be fair, there are loads of my favourite tour organisers not here, for instance Love Book Tours, Hidden Hollow Book tours, The Write Reads, MTMC, BOMM or Sapphire Ink Book Tours, but I hope I get the chance next month!
