September 2010 New Mystery Releases!

It's almost impossible to believe that another month has flown by. If someone asked me where summer went, I certainly wouldn't be able to come up with an answer!

Like every other bookaholic in the world, I have my favorite genres, and I always want to know when new books are being published. Whether they're by new-to-me authors or ones who are tried and true, I'm insatiable when it comes to new books.

The following books are my top ten picks for new mysteries being released in September. (Don't tell anyone, but I squeezed in one historical fiction title...shhhh!) The titles are grouped by release dates, and I've included the information you'll need to find them all at your favorite book spots. Let's see which titles have me drooling this month!

*Upcoming review on Kittling: Books

It looks as though September is another wonderful month for crime fiction-- in particular the 28th with the books by two of my favorites, Ann Cleeves and Louise Penny.

Which ones did you just add to your own wish list?


  1. Some great titles here. I plan to start Russian Winter later this week.

  2. Looking forward to your review of Russian Winter - that one looks fantastic!

  3. A lot of good ones coming out. I loved Russian Winter and Bury Your Dead. I hope you enjoy them if you haven't read them yet. So good!!

  4. Wow, Cathy! A bunch of good ones here and some authors I'm not familiar with. So many choices....

  5. Beth-- I haven't received my copy yet, but I'll be reading it soon, too!

    Ruth-- It does, doesn't it?

    Kaye-- I hope I like them, too. I write negative reviews, but I certainly don't enjoy doing it!

    Kay-- I know! But I'd rather be spoiled for choice than the alternative....

  6. I have the Cleeves...kindly sent to me by the author, the British edition with the lighthouse on the cover. The last in a great sad.

    But I must get my hands on the latest Susan Hill. I had a few issues with the last in the series, but I am always hopeful.

  7. I'm really looking forward to the new Louise Penny!

  8. I recently got Saving Max and am looking forward to reading it.

  9. Oh thank you, what a great list.

    I really need to start Louise Penny's series. Shadows in the Street and The day of Small Things looks great also.

    Have a great week.

  10. The cover for Blue Lightning is fantastic.

  11. I recently read the first in the Dexter series since I have enjoyed the TV series so much. I was surprised that some of the book's characters didn't live on at the end of the first book and yet they are quite focal in the show. Have you read the rest of the series and do you watch the show? I am wondering if they went very separate ways after Book 1 and if I should keep reading...

  12. Caite-- The lighthouse cover? Please don't look at me. This shade of green isn't very becoming, I'm afraid....

    Belle-- So am I!

    Page-- I hope we both enjoy it!

    Marce-- You definitely need to start reading Louise Penny. She is *marvelous*!!

    Ryan-- I like that one, too.

    Molly-- Although I enjoyed the TV series, I didn't even finish watching the first season, so I'm not a good person to ask. :(

  13. I love the cover for The Day of Small Things.

  14. Kris-- It is an intriguing cover.


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
